Stormy Weather

Greetings, Fellow Felines!

Possum here at the keyboard, with the latest news. 

Pixie (who is napping under the quilt on Mummy's bed) has been feeling a bit better since the day before yesterday and she ate more than half of her food on Wednesday (though not quite so much on Thursday and today even less, though the day is still young). Our Human did some research on the Internet and found a very useful web-site about Chronic Renal Failure in Cats and, as a result, arrived at some insights as to why Pixie was refusing to eat her new Veterinarian Renal Diet. With a flash of Enlightenment (isn't that a lovely big word We have added to Our vocabulary?), it dawned on her that nobody, especially not a Pussycat who was feeling poorly, would be tempted to eat dry pellets that smell (and taste) like sawdust. (I could have told her that!) She therefore craftily added a few teensy weensy pieces of Fancy Feast to our dry foods and mixed them in well to give a more appetising smell to the food, and do you know what, Fellow Felines? It actually seemed to work, though she still had to coax Pixie quite a bit. 

I do hope this is not going to come off our weekly ration of half a can of Fancy Feasties... Oh, no! Mummy is nodding. It is going to come off our ration. Now, that is not Good News, Fellow Felines!

To other matters, however! We finally had a taste of Winter, Fellow Felines. We have been reading on so many of your blogs about snow and storms, while the Sun continued to shine here, that We were beginning to feel rather left out! But last night, there was quite a storm, with lots of water falling out of the sky and flashy lights and sudden, loud, crashing noises.
We aren't frightened of storms, Fellow Felines. No, indeed, not at all. But just in case Mummy was frightened, we ran and snuggled under the blankets with her, to comfort her. Wasn't that thoughtful of Us, Fellow Felines?

Now we are all set to enjoy the weekend at home with Mummy.
Shabbat Shalom to you all.

Hey Possum, We are glad Pixie is munching her lumch a bit more. As you say, no self respecting cat's going to eat cardboard and go yum yum! Good thinking on the part of your mom >^,,^<

Admiral Hestorb said...

Great thinking on your Mommy's part! Keep the Fancy Feast coming. Ask Pixie if she would like newer FF with extra gravy so as to moisten her dry food with the gravy?

You were excellent furbabies to protect your mom like that! I have protected mine too! I make sure she isn't worried or frightened when the horrible crashing starts out there with all the flashy lights! It's part of our jobs,

You babies eat now and make sure Mom has something to do so she won't fuss too much over you. (Never works on MY mom either!)

Ah, now see, the Admiral had a good suggestion about the FF with gravy, though we think those have wheat, and corn, soy and wheat aren't so good for kitties. But any calories are better than no calories right now, so we think whatever she'll eat is worth feeding.

Storms actually don't bother us at all...though they really do bother our mom, if they're too wild (lightning and thunder).

But trust us, you don't want snow!

Wow, your Mommy sure is smart! That FF solution sounds brilliant, and we are glad Pixie is doing better.

Sorry to hear about the rationing, though ... definitely NOT good.

Way to take care of your human. yo two are the best!

Shabbat Shalom!

Sounds like good news for Sweet Pixie and we so appreciate the update, sweet Possum.
You sweethearts keep watching over Mom when the storms come. I sleep with Mom when it's stormy to keep her safe.

Is there is a canned version of Pixie's food? Some of the prescription foods come in both dry and canned.

If the storm boomies and lightning are bad enough to scare our human, we're scared, too!

praying that the eating continues and that there are no more scary weather events at your house!

Purring and praying for good news for you!

I hope Pixie feels more better soon. :)
