Is he doing any lip licking?

It sounds to me like he may be nauseous, and that might be a residual effect of the antibiotic. A vet once told me that antibiotic-induced nausea can last for a couple of weeks AFTER the med is finished, so if that's any part of Boss's current problem, it may take a while to subside.

He does lip lick after he eats like as of right now he has eaten all of the wet in his bowl I will put some more in there at 9 pm tonight.

We will see if it is our foster she is going to a new foster tomorrow but the kittens are staying. But Boss plays with the kittens.

Lip licking after a meal is normal, but lip licking between meals or when he approaches food and walks away without eating can be a sign of nausea.

I think it's good that Mama is leaving (assuming her kits are at least 8 weeks old). One less potential stressor for Boss.

No the kittens are only 6 or 7 but she can no longer feed them she has lost all mussel mass had already lost it when I got her about 3 weeks ago.

We have been able to keep her from loosing anymore but all the kittens where eating dry so it was time to separate.


But she has been separated for three or four days now. and already put on half a pound.

Ok so got every flavor of Tiki cat they make.
also got Instinct every flavor but beef he is not a beef eater and Wellness core all canned and a brand new food bowl hopefully this works.

Got a gate to keeps kittens out of bedroom and got him a cat tree to put his food on top so he feels safe.

Hopefully with all this it works the bedroom will become only his safe spot. Put his hidden hole under our bed he spends a lot of time in their anyway wish me lucks guys.

So I have great news


He ate a 2.8 ounce can of Tiki cat and about 2.5 ounces of Evo.


I am so excited he seems to like having the bedroom. The foster for mom fell thru they never showed so we took everyone to get shots and wormed.

I am hoping his new digs help him out a lot they already seem to be.


He now has in his bowl 1/2 cup of fromm 5 star. He likes that flavor so we are sticking with it. We may try TOTW again but after he has been eating normally for weeks on top of weeks again.

That IS great news! Let's hope he keeps it up.

After you find new placements for Mama and the kits, you might want to consider taking a break from fostering for a while to see what effect that has on Boss's appetite over the longer term.

Well i think he is keeping it up hopefully

He was given this morning

2.5 ounce of Instinct which he already ate

2.5 ounce of Evo which he is eating now

and 1/4 cup kibble.


He really likes the instinct to eat it in one sitting like he used to he must like it. I am wondering if he got board with the same food everyday. On top of stress I got the appetite stimulant JIC but he has not received it yet. I have a feeling he is trying to go off kibble.
