My foster kitties are currently 6 weeks old. This group seems less eager to wean than most. They are all big, fat, and growing. They didn't take well to canned by itself or canned with KMR, but did take a liking to baby food. I have mixed the canned food with baby food, but they won't eat the canned without baby food (except for 1 of 5). Some won't even eat canned mixed with baby food, they just want the baby food. They are showing much more interest in mom than food. Are these just future finicky cats? Is there something I can do to help get them more interested in food? I have tried a variety of canned flavors. That doesn't seem to make much of a difference. Because of the baby food, they know how to eat. They are with mom 24-7 and can always watch her. They just prefer not to eat unless it tastes really, really good (like baby food). Any ideas on getting them to eat well balenced kitty food?
