Ha! Pretty much, gnu.
Yup, Becca - some cats just don't quite make the top ten percentile, as it were. Kidding aside, starving during kittenhood likely impeded Snowball's development in a number of directions, including brain growth. I've no idea how long he was on his own. He may have been separated from his mother very early on - there wasn't much to him when I started feeding him.
On one subject, though, he has developed strong kitteh opinions, and that is - fud. Wild dead thins iz not fud. Dry kibble iz fud for one day. Then iz not fud, is stale yuckies, do not want. Gushy fud iz gud fud, except salmon flavour, which iz not fud, do not want. Lasagna IZ fud - WANT! (First cat I've known to even touch the stuff).
Tommy is more traditional. Wild thins iz fud. Dry kibble is fud. Gushy fud is fud. Except salmon flavour, do not want! He will only eat two kinds of people food -good aged cheeses, any variety, and vanilla ice cream - WANT!
