Please give a warm Caturday welcome to today’s Star Kits, Pancho and Lefty. They are 4 week old Orange Tabbies from Tyler, Texas.
These 2 were part of a litter of 5 whose mother got run over and killed the day after they were born. They found the sickly runt a surrogate, and “farmed” the others out. SO GLAD I took 2, because it has made a difference in their development I’m sure. So, I’ve had them since they were 2 days old. We’ve had a few crises, but somehow managed to make it through, though I was beside myself with fear. My problem now is that Lefty has started to go bonkers at feeding time. I went through the previous thread, but since it was five years old 🙂 thought I would try a new one. They are “sleeping through the night”. From the very first, Lefty (always a bit smaller) has been the louder, more strident, more busy kitty, while Pancho is a much more mellow fellow. Pancho is now taking between 45 and 55 mls per feeding, but I am struggling to gt 25 down Lefty. He WANTS more but he is fighting so hard I can’t control him to feed him. I have tried putting the formula in a saucer, they are not interested. I have tried the wet baby kitty food, no dice. Changed nipples, no help. Worried that Lefty will quit gaining weight. Hey, the good news is that they caught on to the cat box immediately!
