Preemie Post

Oops – I hit the Publish button too early!

It was another hot day, and the cats were pretty idle.  So here are more pictures from  Saturday.

Gus has been a little difficult with his medicine for joints again.  Once the ultra nice food was gone he started to leave the food alone.  Today I took Robyn’s advice and got a little baby food and mixed it in.   I made it a treat instead of dinner and he did eat it right up.

That stuff is pricey!  Good thing I only need a little.

I don’t want him to get into the habit of being suspicious of food.

The Camera Strap can always bring out the zany in Calpurnia…

  1. Great pictures! Gus in profile (love his nose!) and Calla with her tongue out! Too cute!
    I’m glad the baby food is working. I know what you mean about them being suspicious of food. Leo went through that with his kidney/bladder meds. I’m glad he’s off of that now!

      Giving him a half ounce or so of milk has worked pretty well in reconciling him to the hyperthyroid medicine. He even purrs when I am carrying him to the bathroom for his pill.


  2. Good idea on the baby food. I have to give Felix miralax every evening, this may work!

    When my cat went on a hunger strike once, baby food snapped her out of it. We then went to cheap stinky grocery store food, and then back to her good stuff.
