|Bubby is a bigger pom. He weighed in at 12.5lbs as of last Thursday when he went in to be neutered. He eats a TON.
As for Loki, he's teeny compared to Bubby. When I pet him I feel every bone. His ribs(though it seems like there's some skin over them) his spine, and his hips. He just feels very boney and its hard to give him a good rub when he's got no meat on his bones. I got him to eat 1/2 a cup of hamburger meat today. Maybe a little more. He doesn't even want to touch his kibble or canned food and now I'm frantic. He will pick at the food all day and slowly eat it, of course its hard to feed him since Bubby will devour any food that is in his reach.
I tried the parmesan cheese and he didn't like that either. It's starting to become upsetting. The only thing I can get him to eat is hamburger meat. He doesn't even want chicken. But I'm glad he's eating SOMETHING. How long will it take for him to start filling out? This is driving me crazy.
Oh and he's very skittish. He's frightenned by sudden movements, and if you go to pet him he shys away. He's starting to slowly come out of his shell though. He sees me loving up on Bubby and seems interested in participating. I try to move slowly, avoid eye contact and be gentle. I'm not sure what kind of situation he came from but I hope he gets use to us soon. But it's wierd. When you're laying down he will randomely just jump on the bed or couch and curl up with you. And when I walk away he will follow me. But when you go towards him is when he darts away. How do you fix this?? And the eating problem...
