I took in an 8 month old momma cat and her 2 male kittens when the kittens were 3 1/2 weeks old. The boys are now 7 weeks old and Luna (the mother) is determined to keep the boys needing her. I am trying to introduce the boys to solid food but she keeps feeding them almost constantly and they are just not interested in eating the food. I have never had kittens do this or a mother so intent on keeping her boys close. Any suggestions? I have been shutting the boys in a room for several hours a day without her, with access to food and water but the are just not interested. I have homes all lined up for all 3 of them but they need to start being self sufficient and Luna's milk needs to start drying up so I can get her spayed before she goes to her new home. Any Ideas or suggestions would be great.
