Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. If Raju is very active, then he likely burns off more calories then the average cat. Though no matter how much smaller he is compared to other cats, as long as he maintains his weight, we'd not be worried. Still, if you are keen to get more weight on him, you'd want to consider supplementing him with calorie rich diets (ie Hills A/D, Royal Canin Recovery diet, etc) or even canned kitten food. As well, you could also give him a calorie ***** *****quid diet (ie Clinicare, Catsure) or there are paste supplements (ie Nutrical) that can also be used. And these will all get more in per bite to get more weight onto him. Please take care,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Please rate my service afterwards, as this is the only way I am credited for helping you today.
