My two street rescues are coming on fine, though the landlord is still giving me pain about keeping them. But there are a few remaining problems: the main one is getting the smaller one, little Napoleon, to eat regularly. In the morning I always have to 'kick-start' him as he does not come running to the dish like the others but sits and watches or even stays right away. Even when I feed him separately he does not want to eat unless I feed him some pieces first, or give him some milk and egg by syringe. Then he will take a little by himself. In the evening it is a different story - he will push his way into all the bowls and eat a good meal of mixed wet and dry kitten food or anything else that is going! I leave dry food out during hte day so it hard to know what he eats then, but at weekends his appetite seems to increase during hte day. He was at the vet 4 days ago for rabies and booster shots and they could find nothing wrong, except he is still smaller and thinner than his brother. Any ideas? Or is he just like those people who can't face food in the morning! He needs more food as he is still rather bony, though very active.
