|Since Bumpurr looks at things differently, and he is on the overly pickey side, mol, how much are you feeding, and how much is he actually eating before he walks away, and what are you feeding.
Once he has eaten what he is going to eat, it should be picked up, especially in this heat, I really would not let it sit all day. Think it is Shadow who knows all about this, he is always saying about how fast bacteria grows.
If he is walking away from food and leaving it there, he either does not like it, or he has eaten his fill, he is just a kitten. Mine eat theirs in about 5 min, if it takes them that long, and Bumpurr's worst time, when he had to be on canned for a few days, was 30 min.
I would figure out if he just doesn't like it, or if he has eaten his full. Ideally kittens should be fed several small meals, ya don't want to teach them to eat until they puke, or ya don't want them one day, too fat.
Most do 3 meals, before work, after work, before bed, if one is lucky enough to not have to work, or can work from home, they will do 4 meals, but most of us have to do 3.
Figure out what he should get, per day, based on the guide for his age and weight, and the calorie count, on the side of the can, this is just a guide, a place to start, you adjust up or down, then divy this into 3 meals.
