Hunter has been here for four days now. In that time we’ve found him to be friendly, outgoing, well behaved on a leash, fond of playing in a light rain, but not a downpour (I can’t blame him for that). He does not eat much. I think he’s accustomed to his brother, Bailey, snatching up most of the food. Because of that tendency I move Hunter to another kennel at feeding time. The rest of the time they coexist peacefully in one kennel. In fact, they prefer it that way.
I’ve been mixing shredded cheese into Hunter’s kibble to encourage him to eat. He’s thin and needs to eat. I separate him from Bailey at meal time because Bailey will push Hunter out of his dish and eat both servings. The cheese has encouraged Hunter, he is eager to get his dish at feeding time and he has been finishing his full portion. This morning I left out the cheese to see if he’d eat without the additive. Hunter stuck his nose in the bowl and sniffed, lifted his head and glared at me, “What are you pulling here? Where’s my CHEESE?” then he went and lay down on his bed in protest. That didn’t last long before he decided he was hungry and would eat what he had even if it is sub-standard. I guess he would eat plain kibble, but since he still needs the calories I’ll continue to add the cheese. It makes him happy.
Hunter also went to Claws and Paws for a Cause mobile vet today for his Rabies vaccination, heart worm test and microchipping. He did really well. He’s a good boy.
