There used to be a food which claimed to be specially formulated for kittens - I think it may have been called Caesar? Our lot loved it. One thing that has always stayed in my mind was advice about feeding kittens - not to overload them, as at six weeks their stomach is only the size of a walnut!

Little and often is the way to go. Glad your kit is finding it's feet.

He has already begun training you.

The latest on Buddy's training of his human care givers is that when he wants to be brushed he goes and paws their leg! He also likes to have his fur brushed the wrong way on his back so that it scratches. I always thought cats hated that but it seems not.

He has already begun training you.

We are now fully trained.  It is lovely to see the difference in him in just a few days.  He now has a fat little tummy and a very important swagger.  (He is absolutely tiny!)

A friend popped round to see him (socially distanced on the front path) and fell in love with him.

We've just got to work out how to stop him chewing wires and how to get him to eat kitten food.  The only thing he will eat is finely chopped up chicken and kitten milk.  You can see who is in charge.

Can't remember any of our cats chewing on wires, but Fleur, our late Cavalier KCS, once managed to chew through the extension lead from the main socket to the office phone leaving us without phone and internet for several days. Where she chewed it wasn't immediately obvious and a call-out by a BT engineer cost me £85. When I realised what had had happened I threatened to put her on diet - but relented at the sight of those big eyes!

Thanks Phil.  One idea was to put some foil round the wires.  Basically he just goes round looking for trouble.  When OH came back from bowling yesterday evening, I was very pleased to hand over responsibility but by then the kitten was tired from giving me the runaround, so just got on his chest, purred and went to sleep.

Wires on the list for a sort out today.

Yes, which is a total contradiction to his looks.  He is the tiniest, pretty little thing.  He's not happy with the tin foil round the wires!

I don't think I'd be happy with tinfoil round wires either. :o
