Hi-I am fostering a litter of 5 kittens & a mother and I'm having trouble getting a few of them interested in canned food. They are all getting over URIs and are well on thier way to being fully recovered, but while they were sick and not hungry, I was supplementing their nursing w/ KMR (using one of those large plastic syringes). The kittens are about 6 1/2 weeks old, and a few of them will eat the canned food, but 2 of them have absolutely ZERO interest, even if I mix some of the KMR with the canned food, warm the food, etc... I am wondering if I just cut them off completely from the KMR, will they get hungry enough to eventually start eating the canned food? I doubt they are still nursing enough to fully sustain them, so I don't want to do any damage by refusing to supplement their nursing, but I wonder if they will ever start eating canned food if keep feeding them the KMR...Anybody have suggestions? THANKS!
