You know, I have mixed the canned food w/ the KMR to the point where it is liquid enough to feed the kittens through the wider-tipped syringe---and for the most part, they'll eat it (messily). It's almost as if they are unconcerned about the *type* of food that they are eating, they just are just picky about HOW it is they are eating---these two kittens only want to be hand-fed. I wonder if I have some how gotten them *addicted* to syringe-feeding?? I have tried putting the KMR into a dish and gently putting the kittens' front paws into it, but they'll always step right out and scamper off to play, barely even stopping to clean their feet. I will keep trying, though...Thanks for your response!
