Aww

He's a gorgeous boy, with simply lovely eyes, I can totally understand why you missed him so much, he looks very happy to be back with his mummy too!

thanks all

Dylan seems pretty pleased to be back and back to normal other than one thing.... He's not eating as much as he should... and he isn't as interested in his wet food like he used to be... It's worrying me a little bit but he is still eating food but he is a *tad* underweight

Despite telling the cattery EXACTLY What he eats they were giving him Iams dry food

Any suggestions to get his eating up are well appreciated! Dylan sends licks and kitty snuggles

So where was he staying -- you said a cattery. How did you figure out which one to leave him at, how long was he there, what was it like, and how much did that cost, if you don't mind my asking.

Sometimes fishy foods are good for getting cats re-interested in food. I'm sure you know that you don't want to keep feeding him lots of these, but to get his appetite back, the smellier the better.

Its cool - ask away

I made a list of every cattery etc in Edinburgh and phoned round each one... Some weren't open over Xmas so that eliminated them from the start and some others I phoned up just didn't "sound" nice and friendly...

This one sounded really good, she gave me the website address to look at which had pics of the pens the cats stay in and asked me lots and lots about Dylan (Including EXACTLY what he ate and stuff). She breeds cats too and was just really enthusiastic and made me feel at ease because she seemed to know what she was doing.

When we left him it was very cold outside but warm in his pen - we left his toys, blanket etc and I knew he was scared cos he wanted to be picked up and gave me "the vet look" (ie. he looks at me worriedly and doesn't lick, purr, meow, head butt - anything... he does it at the vet a lot lol) I didn't meet the owner but the girl she employs re-assured me he'd soon adjust and be fine. She also asked his breed, age etc and complimented him on how gorgeous he was. The other cats nearby seemed well looked after, the pens were clean and well kept.

When we left - I cried (soppy Mummy) and I really didn't want to leave him for so long (10 days in all) I paid £6 a day, they provide heating, litter etc and all food unless they have something specific but as they had Dylan's food I didn't need to take anything...

When we picked him up we met the owner who AGAIN asked his breed to which she replied "I thought so" and asked how old he was (about 9mths) She was under the impression he was 18mths but thought it was wrong because his coat wasn't fully in yet. Anyways we are chatting away and we go and get him. He's chipper enough and a bit heavier and bigger. So as we were putting him in the carrier she asked what I fed him (AGAIN) so I told her. Then she mentioned they had been giving him Iams and that she thought his food needed increasing (Because he was "On the light side") I explained we had discussed it etc but decided not to mess with his food too much before going into the cattery as it may disturb him too much. Anyways we left cos again it was cold and we were all tired and eager to get home.

He of course was funny the first couple of days but I tried to re-introduce him as smoothly as possible. But he is still not eating much... The food he had before and normally loved he seems to turn his nose up at. I reluctantly bought some Iams died food to see if he ate that more - he ate it but not readily...

Don't think I'll let him go back there though. No matter how much they liked my kitty
