When I got Ollie I was keeping my granddaughter during the week days. She decided it would be fun to sit and feed him by hand....one piece at a time!! He decided this was great and that he wouldn't eat any other way....finally had to tell her she couldn't do that anymore....just sit with him. At home his food would be out 30 min. and then taken up and nothing till dinner. He is on Acana. Now he wants to eat most of the time b/c our kitten is interested in his food!! He is sound asleep next to me now and I guarantee if I get off the sofa he will be right with me!! Whenever I'm sick he won't leave my side and snuggles.

Eva was the same way..I believe your baby is adjusting to his new home...my Eva was never crazy about having just kibble...I have to mix a little canned with it..

Deb - yes he is Dewey's brother What a total doll baby he is! I can not tell you how happy we are with this little guy!!

Last night I added some hot water to the kibble - just enough so they were soft and crunchy mixed...he ate it all up! Now, I do not know if this is because he just had gotten hungry...or if softening it a bit helped. I did it again this morning and he ate almost all of it again.

I am going to see about adding something else with his kibble, as he seems to really miss the Red Barn roll It is at least an hour drive to the closest pet store, so I find it is easier to just order online....they never have in stock what I want anyways.
