the cats

Since the spraying started, I’ve also switched Stewart to a new food. I followed their feeding directions based on his weight and next thing I know, Jr Fatty has put a little over a lb back on. This was confirmed when we took him in for his vet visit. They ran his blood, took some […]

It’s getting better

I think I’m done updating the Juvenile Weights of the guinea pigs. They are full grown, except for Potsticker, who seems to grow out rather than up. She is almost 1000 grams. Her auntie Mu-Xi is 1010 grams. Stewart is eating the new food without being too skittish about it now. Stewart got sprayed in […]

home sweet home

Dismal is out of town for the weekend – A LONG weekend. Thursday thru Monday. I didn’t get up this morning early enough to feed the boys so I get to the kitchen and see the treat tote bag in the middle of the kitchen floor. I’ve been trained to keep it zipped up. It’s […]

Lily and Mu-Xi

They are actually getting along much better than they were after the buddy baths. Sometimes Lily pecks at Mu-Xi to get out of her way, because she is an ever-expanding butt, but they can be seen in the litterbox under the hay side by side. They didn’t have any squabbles when I was cleaning the […]

Greetings!

Lily is obnoxious. After two weeks separate from Mu-Xi, they had their meet and greets on the floor in an open pen. Within ten minutes there was lunging at each other. I did this for two days. Then I did the buddy bath. Both pigs got bathed together in the bathtub and then put into […]

for the birds

Two cats on a diet

They both act so differently about their food restrictions. The feeding schedule is very liberal around here. Tommy Gargoyle gets 3/4 cup food because he’s supposed to be in the 13 lb range. Stewart gets 2/3 cup food because he’s supposed to be in the 12 lb range. They both get fed together as follows: […]

I’m open to new ideas

There are so many things that I could teach my cat if he weren’t already fat. He’s highly food motivated and I could probably teach him to shake and lay down and sit upright if I could bribe him with treats. Sad for me, he’s been on this prescription diet for a year and hasn’t […]

Stewart is a odd little guy

I caught him giving himself a bath while sitting in the guinea pigs’ litter box. He’s also not being free fed anymore so he’ll try to break into the feeder for five minutes before stopping and staring a human down and then proceeding to cry out like a child that has their favorite toy removed. […]
