On the other hand, Kate, you say "He's not even enjoyable to pet because you can feel all his bones poking out." That's way beyond just being able to feel his ribs. I'd say while you are keeping him it wouldn't hurt to give him a little more, see how he does, and then gently talk to his parents about your concern, (phrases gently and non-aggresively.)
If someone was watching my Tucker, I'd want them to be comfortable in doing so. If they felt he needed a little more food for a week, that certainly wouldn't harm him.
