    this is typical and nothing too concerning. offer every 2 weeks from now on until you start getting a consistant acceptance of food.

    My male went off food for 8 month ! From mid January to mid September. He only lost about 150 gr and hasn't missed a beat

    He is eating regularly again and has regained that weight and then some.

    I have recently took him to the vet. My vet did not seem to find anything wrong, and that said that he is at a healthy weight. He said this happens sometimes and that he will eat when he is ready. He didn't seem concerned about it at all..so it probably is just me worrying. Which I figured.. my boy is part of the family so I do worry about him a lot XD. Thank you for the replies.
