Should we be offering them multiple small meals a day (since neither of them eats more than a few bites at a time) and personally supervising each meal then removing the bowls as soon as they walk away, or what?
I ration feed all of mine, twice a day. They currently eat roughly the same amount (just under 1/4 cup twice a day), but that wasn't always the case. Each cat has a different dish that is a different color and texture. Beckham has a tin bowl, Marijke has a glass bowl, and Posh has a plastic lid (she eats off a flat lid b/c she gets feline acne so her chin shouldn't touch the side of a bowl). They know which dish is theirs and they know the sound of the food in their dish. I always feed them in the exact same order. The order was originally determined based on the speed of the eating. For example, as a kitten Marijke ate slow and had to eat more, so she got fed first. Beckham would scarf, so he got fed last. That way they all finish at relatively the same time. I've always ration fed and I've never had a healthy cat leave food in his/her bowl for another cat to come eat. Originally I supervised their meals and fed them in different corners of the room, but now that feeding is a routine and they all know they are getting some, I don't have to supervise and I know they all get fed. They know when it's time to eat and if I forget, they will HOWL at me.

no, that's just her owner She has a faraway look in her eyes though! She particularly likes 'Appalatia' I think

Fergus figured out early on where the "warm" comes from.



"You let your cats get on the kitchen table???" Well, yeah . . . .

We have SO much stuff on our dining room table that you CANNOT see the top of it Needless to say, kitty visits it on occasion. Gives him a better view/different angle of the outdoors. Morning time he is usually sitting in the den looking out the window.

I love these pics. I've got to get the camera back from my son so I can post some pics of my kittens. He took it last weekend to finish off the roll and I haven't gotten up with him since.
The kittens eyes are all open now and they are growing really fast.
Bela is a good mommie but she and Lovey are still hissing and spitting at each other through the door - so no progress there.
Will post pic's as soon as I get the film developed.

kitty love (always in the dirty laundry!)



I setup a lawn chair with a fleece cat mat in the basement and that's Marijke's favorite spot

I don't have any recent ones on my computer. These were the last two (which are on page 1 of the thread):






I think there are some on Maddy's camera, but I don't know where she put the memory card, and she won't be back til later in the week. These will have to do for now

Aww.. it's so funny the places they find to rest. Chester(AKA Sir Clayton Mofo Higgins ) has made himself quite comfy on an old blanket on the couch:



He also loves to sit in the bathroom sink when I'm taking a bath or shower
