After an initial “I can’t take food from you” the kittens got used to their new mom, Pamela. She writes:
“My old cat Spice was considerate enough to wake me at 2:30am this morning, so I could get up and feed the team. Everybody hungry and ate well. I just finished spending a few hours with them this morning. Everyone ate well. I started and ended with Novena (blue)…think I fed her about 3 times before she finally toddled off for a nap. Not getting many takers for the solid food, but that hasn’t been a focus yet. Got 3 poops near the litter box, so added -belatedly- a shorter litter box that they can climb into much easier. We’ll see how that goes.”
Now they’re over that initial reluctance, I think they’ll eat well enough to skip the midnight feedings. Spice may enjoy the wee hour actiivity though.
