Seriously, I love these two dummies, but it's like they've figured out how to push my buttons in the biggest way! Both of them are on raw, both thriving, but it's like they choose polar opposite "moods" to be in about what they're eating.
Atlas, who used to eat ANYthing, is now being pickier than Wicket. Wicket is going through "food moods" where he'll only eat one thing at a time and Atlas is sporadically doing the same thing. They will never eat the same kind of food, it's bizarre!
yesterday afternoon, I gave them beef strips. Atlas ate a couple of bites and then walked off. Wicket ate one and then walked off. Both of them came back a few minutes later. Wicket lay down in front of his bowl and just looked at me. Atlas ate another strip and then walked off.
Before bed was pork chops. Kitten wouldn't touch them after the first one--ate it and then walked away. Wicket ate a few and then left. Re-refridgerated them until this morning, when Wicket finished the rest of them but the kitten, who hadn't had anything really since yesterday afternoon, refused them entirely. He got beef patty with a bit of organ mixed in and polished it off in ten seconds. Wicket looked at his and lay down in front of his bowl with accusing eyes and hasn't left the kitchen since, but still refuses to eat the portion that's there.
They've been doing this for days now, where one of them will eat something and the other will refuse it and vice versa, then they switch at the next meal. I honestly have no idea who is getting how much of what anymore and it's driving me nuts! Sometimes Wicket will crunch through a chicken wing like it's the food of the gods, and other times he'll look at me in disgust while the kitten happily munches away.
I don't know how to get them both back on some sort of a routine and I know they're getting *enough* to eat but I'm getting frustrated because I can't just portion out the right amount of what they're meant to be getting (in terms of organ, bone, etc) and trust that they're actually eating it because they're messing around so much!
