More food? Absolutely!



I am quite puzzled as to why Tanaka is still so thin as all the boys are about 5 kgs. Megat is not 5 kg but Dr Ly said he is a little fat. Tanaka is very light to hold and I had seen the vet last year about his weight. The vet said that there is nothing wrong with him and I know at just about 4 kg, he is ok. I noticed however that he gets quite hungry at night and hardly ever eats in the pm, although he does eat a little in the morning. then it struck me that all the boys have been eating the kibble and as the youngest kitty, he is always the one who has to give in. So I decided to give him his own kibble bowl on top of the cage and I am glad to see that he eats from there several times a day. So maybe I have cracked it!

I am SO glad you did. He must have been very hungry so now, I hope to learn he has gained weight in a few minths. xoxoxox

Excellent, Tanaka-Chan! In our house, the youngest kitty is the greediest!

Tanaka, you are training your Mom well! Your own special feeding place is always nice.

It's a good thing you figured it out. He sure is a lovely color.

Actually that was what i thought too for a while - that Tanaka was a bit slim for his age & gender. Hope he gets a bit bigger to match the rest of the gang. Having said that, i think my "thin & long" pets are the healthier & longer-living pets ;)
