Apologies for two threads in 24 hrs, I may be being a bit PFC...
Bit worried my rescue isn't eating enough. She is very petite but 4kg. We have had her since Saturday.
So far she has had: A small bowl of dry Purina One and Royal Canin mix (she has been on RC, I plan on keeping her on it, but they were out of stock of big bags when I bought it so I am doing a mix atm) A couple of decent forkfuls of tuna which she wolfed down (prob 1/3 of a tin) Probably 5 Dreamies Some licks of a piece of cheese
She has refused the chicken I left out for her. She was on a mainly dry diet which I would like to make fully dry if possible, supplemented by chicken/prawns/fish as and when. I have some pouches as a back up.
Do I need to worry? I don't want to mess her around or try and push food on her. At the moment the bowl of dry and water is there. She has used her litter tray for both things since she got here.
Don't worry. It's likely to take her a couple of weeks or so to be relaxed enough to eat normally. Just leave it up to her. And generally speaking if she doesn't seem to eat much but still maintains a healthy weight, then there is still no need to worry.
Thank you both - I don't know what I would do without this forum! I have just sat next to her and given her a cuddle, she out both front legs out and wrapped them round my forearm, then nuzzled her head against my arm. Squeee!
