Hi There,

I don't think Nico is crazy, just possibly having some issues related to being in a cage for so long.

Some kittens normally eat like they are starving. As long as Nico doesn't have a weight problem I would feed more. Her metabolism may be faster than her sister's. And you never know, she may have even been food deprived at some time.

Just to cover all bases, if a fecal exam hasn't been done on Nico, I would have that done as well. I kind of doubt that parasites are her problem though.

Cats in cages often sleep in their litterboxes, so I don't consider that abnormal. I don't know what you mean by "walking funny" but if I were you I would have a vet examine her to find out what is going on. She might have been born with a problem or she may just not be very strong from lack of exercise.

A cat running over to another cat that is retching is not unusual either. And if fresh food comes up, some cats will go for it. It's just how some animals are. I know it sounds gross but it is merely warmed up food to them.

Nico may be an aggressive eater, but you don't have a crazy cat on your hands......believe me, I have some......lol

Take care,
PHKitkat
