Thanks for your reply. It’s been a week now and in a week he has put on about 30g so not a lot. He seems quite active and is eating but not a full 100g wet cat food. Trying him on Hog food and he seems to like that. It’s been pretty cold so I’ve brought him into the house in his box and covered with a bed sheet hope that’s ok? Hopefully will eat more. I don’t like to disturb him everyday as he is very snuggled in his nest so general cleaning daily but only a full clean and weighing at the weekend is that the right thing to do? Thanks again.
