I mentioned the other day that I have a couple of new little cats. Gypsy (mum) is around 10 months and Kiera is just over 10 weeks.

So far today between them they've eaten four pouches of Felix (I know but this is what they were on and I plan to change them over to hi life or natures menu when I'm off work next week) a tin of Applaws, half a pouch of hi life and two handfuls of Royal Canin. Is this normal??? It seems a lot, Rosie used to eat two pouches a day and maybe have a nibble at some biscuits. They were both a bit skinny when I got them so I don't mind them over eating a bit at the moment but I wouldn't want it to continue too long. Fat cats aren't healthy! They're due to be wormed at the end of the week and they have a health check then as well. Both of them are fine and lively.

I'm not exactly sure who is eating how much as kitten obviously doesn't eat a lot in one go but she is eating regularly and gaining weight. Quite often I have to pick her up and take her to her food bowl but she's more than happy to eat once she gets there. I think the rest of the world's so exciting she just forgets she has to eat as well :)

Thanks for the replies guys - I guess I'll just keep feeding them up. I most certainly intend to get them on something better than Felix in the near future!

Just a word about Gypsy - she might be a young mum but she's certainly a good one! She adores her baby, cleans her plays with her, puts up with her leaping on her when she's asleep! She even goes and tells her off when she sees her doing something she's not supposed to like scratching furniture or chewing wires. Kiera loves her and follows her everywhere, it's really cute! I do wish Kiera would stop doing death defying leaps though. I'm sure kittens can fly! I'm trying to leave her to learn and not intervene unless she's doing something really dangerous but sometimes my heart's in my mouth!
