Special needs

When I admitted my cats were fat, years ago, I thought I could fix it and that they would go onto have regular lives again, but life gets in the way. We had a problem  with Tommy keeping weight on months after his surgery. How can I go from a chronically fat lard bub to […]

Trying to get the swing of this raw diet

Tommy and Stewart started raw 5 months ago. It was Nature’s Variety Raw Medallions in chicken. Then it was bone in rabbit with turkey and 20% skin and I think 10 egg yolks. Well they gained a pound. So I’ve been doing rabbit and turkey without skin and no egg yolks. I had Stewart at […]

My old cat has the coughs again

Stewart has controlled asthma. I have Flovent and ProAir inhalers for him with his AeroKat inhalation device. Amalie doesn’t take to the Aerokat, so she doesn’t get Flovent or ProAir. Instead of getting targeted treatment directly into the lungs, she takes oral steroids every few months for a couple weeks when her coughing fits start […]

Chocolate

Sunday night was another interesting one for the household. There was a half eaten chocolate waffle on the kitchen floor. To induce vomiting you use a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution administered via syringe, the dosage being 5mL(1 tsp) for every 5 lbs of body weight for your cat. Do not exceed 15mL(1 TBS) per dose […]

NEXT BATCH OF RAW

I’ve got to do a lower calorie formulation. Eggs were optional so at 700+ calories, those are going to be left out. Skin from the thighs is optional so I’m going to cut out that. It was about 500 calories. Currently I’m pulling back portions on the two boys. Tommy is up a half a […]
