I don't have children, but it seems like taking care of cats must be a little like taking care of a young child. A child that has learned how to get around on his own, but hasn't learned to say what is wrong. A child that can easily hide under the dresser wielding a switchblade. You do your best to give them everything they need. Sometimes they happily take what you give them and cheerfully run off to play. Other times they will not eat their breakfast and sit in their little private place to let you guess why today's kibble, the same flavor as yesterday's which was gobbled down in two minutes flat, just isn't attractive. I guess all that can be done is watch them closely and give whatever our best guess tells us they need, while trying not to tick them off too much.
