But that's just my take on it. I am happy that he is improving, you must be very dedicated to him.
I agree to an extent. If he's not suffering and you have the resources to care for him properly then go for it! I'm concerned that as he gets heavier it may be harder on him. As a caretaker of any animal...horse, cat, dog, mouse...whatever, our main concern should always be for the welfare of the animal. And sometimes that means making hard decisions so that the animal isnt suffering.
Looks like for now he's doing well though - so keep up the good work, the above is just something to keep in mind.
