|Toby is 12 weeks (going to the vet Weds night for last vax series).
I am told that kittens eat "a ton of food" at this stage in their lives, however Toby doesn't seem too interested in food.
Here's what's going on:
- I feed twice/day, each meal is 1 2.5 oz bag of poultry/mutton meat/bone/organ ground mixes from Hare Today supplemented with Alnutrin. I leave it out because he likes to snack all day.
- He eats, but not consistently and not with gusto. Sometimes he'll eat a whole meal in one sitting then won't eat the next meal that day. Sometimes he'll just take a few bites of a meal, then come back later; some days it's like he just nibbles at his food, then walks over to the dog food dish. I didn't want him eating dog food, so I put down a few pieces of Wellness CORE kitten food which he ate -- but if I leave a bowl of it for him, he won't touch it.
What's going on????
Should this kitten be eating more? I'm wasting a lot of expensive food!
I don't know how to make him happy - he just doesn't seem to LOVE food the way I'm told kittens should, and I'm not going to feed him some crap food.
He's just over 3lbs and vet says he's healthy, I just don't get it.
