Arrow Sore gums?

For the past week, Tater has been leaving a little less than half of his food when we feed him in the morning, but he eats all of it at dinner. I have been soaking his kibble in warm water for dinner (when I remember to), but not at breakfast. He gets 2 cups in the morning and 2 cups in the evening.

Could he be leaving the food at breakfast because it's too hard for him to chew in the morning or something like that? I guess I could try to soak it in the morning but if he leaves it I'll be left with a bunch of soggy kibble lol.

How old is he? Could he be teething?

he's 5 months. yeah, his baby teeth are falling out (I've seen 3 or 4 around). would that be enough to keep him for eating?

Wasn't that the name of the truck in Cars, the Disney movie? I think it's adorable!

Sorry, that was "Mater."

Yes, it could defnitely be enough for his appetite to be off. By dinnertime he's probably hungry!
