Very cute kitty, and I'm glad that she's coming out of her shell. But regarding the food, this is day 3, so if it were me, I'd probably take her into the vet today. It's a good thing to do the first week regardless, but she really needs to be eating (and more importantly drinking) asap. Have you left water out for her? I'd probably be worrying about illness at this point.


Yep, I've got a fountain going and have left a bowl of water that I refresh every few hours.
Going to call the breeder then the vet - she had a checkup the day I picked her up, so will speak and see if there was anything that might have developed.

Thanks!

Update:

Thanks for the advice everyone - later in the day she left a generous present in the litter tray and started eating - he doesn't seem to be a particularly fussy eater so far, started her on the same wet food brand as the breeder gave, and she seems to not mind a 25/75 mix of that and Nature's Menu. Was getting quite worried!

It is extremely common for a kitten to lose their appetite. The main thing is that they eat something -- any little thing-- treats, tuna, whatever, just to get some nutrients in them. Now your little pal is eating. It just takes some time. The pictures are beautiful and she seems to be settling in just fine. It will get better as the days go on.
