So I mentioned the kittens weren't gaining weight. Well Theo seemed to have things the worst. While he wasn't losing weight he was still growing and thus he was starting to feel like fur and bones.
I broke out the turkey baby food and while that interested him, he is the most dainty eater I've ever seen. I've seen week old kittens eat more heartily then he does. Don't get me wrong, it was freakingly adorable, tiny little licks taking tiny little bite, but I needed him to eat a lot more then he was going to be able to so I force fed him. That did not go over all that well to his dignity, but I'm sure his body appreciated it. I was hoping that by getting him started he'd take the next few steps on his own. Sadly I didn't see huge improvement, but he did go over and have a few bites of the raw we brought down to entice them all to eat.
Yesterday this happened..
I also found this. See the blue in the middle?
He is still very happy and active and a general pain so I'm still not 'worried' about him.
