well at the least, he is eating better

Boots seems to be doing better.  He weighed 8lbs 4 oz when he first showed up, and then a few days later he was 7lbs 14 oz. I think I hit upon the trick to get him to eat more - by mixing his food with a lot of water to make a soup.  He was 8lbs 2 oz the other day when I weighed him.

But then my DH fed him a can of food this morning and he ate the whole thing despite the fact that it wasn't mixed with water.. so who knows.  Maybe the water isn't necessary??!?!?

I also noticed he isn't hunkering down to eat, but standing upright and leaning over, so I put his bowl up on a box to help him a little.  Some days he likes it, and some days he doesn't.  Poor thing probably has a ton of arthritis.

I must remember he isn't my cat.  What his mom wants to do for him is what will be done for him.  At least I got him eating a bit though so I'm not all that concerned about weight loss.. although I'm still not sure he isn't peeing excessively.

I'm kinda hoping he'll be up to 9 pounds by the time he goes home.
