Mortimer Eating

POST #    2206

He might be missing a couple of teeth, but Mort still eats really fast.

Does he eat the whole bowl at one time? Try as I might, I can't get Irving to do it and feel bad when I have to pick his food up after an hour so that I can go to work.

To add to corie's question, do you give him the whole can at once? We give Travis fractions of the wet food can over the span of the day, because we hate scraping out the dried out bits.

lets see...

he usually eats most of it. goes away to clean his face for a little before returning to finish. now the problem is having randolph around, who tries to eat mort's food. so we move his food around and he eats a good portion of it, leaving only a little left, most of which is dry food.

as far as portions go, we give him a quarter of a can at a time (we buy the larger cans). some of us (me) mix the food better than others (shannan), so he can get a better mix of food. if we don't mix, he tends to eat around the dry food and eat less. that's not a bad thing, but if that happens, he'll eat randolph's food.
