Rupert vs the syringe



Because I'm nervous about Rupert's weight I brought down some more baby food to syringe feed him. First thing I did was weigh him. In the morning he was 1lb 4oz last night he was 1lb 5oz! Since I was having a hard time telling exactly how much he was weighing (the scale would vacillate between half ounces) I've decided to start weighing him in Kilograms (my scale does either lbs/oz or KG) and he weighed .60 KG.

*knock wood*

He had eaten some dry food and some of the can of mixed grill pate food I had put down for him but I still wanted to make sure that he got more calories in him since I was there to assist it. He is so not a fan of it. The food coma he goes into after being fed bothers me. Fortunately he was once again interested in playing with my necklace - but still not with any of the toys.

So, not a whole heck of a lot 'new' to report.. just a holding pattern... but he is still awfully cute.

  5. He is a cutie patootie. He will thrive under your care, Connie. He must be awfully tiny and so precious.

  6. He's ridiculously cute. We're thinking "eat lots" thoughts for him. Ashton is excellent at those, so they are really strong, too.

  11. "Awfully cute" doesn't do him justice! He's GORGEOUS, with his white toes and tail tip. Poop-bert, wish I could give you some of my overeating genetics...you'd be fat and sassy in NO TIME!
