I need advice for cow(hes a cat)

so cow is a 5 month old male kitten that my neighbor and i caught. hes a stray and we took him to the vet vecause he had a scab on his head that was weeping, we thought it was a absest or something but it turned out it was from a larva living in their. anyway thay gave him antibiotices and cleaned it and such. but thay want him to eat more. the only thing ive gotten him to eat is scrambled eggs with a lil cheese. which porbably isnt the best for him. i was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to get him to eat more cat food and stuff. id really appriciate it!

How about mixing the cat food in with the scrambled eggs. Start with just a little and gradually add more until he is eating cat food.

Have you tried wet food?

Try mixing the egg or boil chiken in with the food.

like canadiancritter, I would say try wet food, make sure it's for kittens! and preferable somthing better than whiskas...
IF you're getting him used to scrambled eggs he's gonna pretend he doesn't want to eat the other food because scrambled eggs taste better of course! So yeah mixing the eggs with the wet food at first is a great idea, if he doesn't want to eat the mix, do not feed him something else, he needs to get used to it and eat what's good for him. He could pretend he doesn't like it for a day or two, but incist. It's like a little kid who needs to eat his veggies!

You could try tuna, if he likes it you could get him fishy food, whiskahs isnt the best but they do oh so fishy, maybe you could try that?

Wet food is the best solution for this. If hes under weight you can get food that will help give him nutrients and weight.
