Who can resist the cuteness that is a kitten? My mother is currently fostering 5 kittens for a volunteer feral cat charity and it’s a real trip to watch them [ try to ] eat. If the pictures about to follow don’t make you smile then maybe you need to stick your head back in the clouds for awhile.
After viewing their eating habits for nearly two weeks, I came to the conclusion that the two most failed eaters were Gibbs (buff) and Monkus (ginger). See evidence below.
I found Gibbs asleep with a cat food tin on his head one morning. After waking him and seeing his panic, I concluded that he’d wedged himself in well before then and exhausted himself to sleep while trying to get out. The little man was so stuck in that even I had to tug hard to get it off… Fail score: 9 out of 10. Cat would gain the extra point had there actually been food in the tin to begin with.
Monkus is the runt of the litter and spent his first weeks being bottle fed by my mother. He is lucky to be alive. His luck does not, however, extend to his ability to comsume food. At least he provides snacks for the others later on, after they wake up from the inevitable post-meal nap. Fail score: 7 out of 10. It fails pretty bad, but it’s pretty common so the fail has lost its lustre.
Monkus demands dinner, regardless of its form. Fail score: 8 out of 10. Extra points would be awarded if you hooked her lip with your paw, cat.
