Very cute. Thank you for rescuing them.
How often are you feeding them?
At that age, I would expect 4 feedings a day of wet, with a constant source of dry available. If you are feeding less often, they may be starving when you are feeding them.
You can put them in another room (bathroom?) while you are fixing the meals.
Young kittens and babies go from okay to starving in under 60 seconds. It get better when they realize they just have to wait a minute.
I just took in a cat three weeks ago. So friendly that I though it was a pregnant young mom. Nope, a 6-7 year old emaciated, neutered male (the large belly was from starvation). I started out feeding small amounts every 2 hours for 2 days. Then increased the amount and pushed the times back slowly until he is on 3 feedings a day (my other cats are fed twice a day). At his age, I doubt we will be finding him a home... And he is a sweetie.
