I have been laying low lately to catch up on my rest and enjoying just hanging out at home with Mom, Dad, and my family.
This week, Mom changed everything.
On Tuesday, I went to a new vet for my nutrition consultation. It wasn’t mandatory that I attend. But it was good for them to see me in person and make an assessment on my weight and muscle tone.
They say I am a 5 out of 10, almost an ideal weight and only mild to moderate muscle loss since my health issues began. Mom says I am sooo skinny. I think she has an inflated view of what a healthy kitty looks like…MOL They reviewed my current diet and gave Mom and Dad a summary of what they feel would work best for me with my health issues.
It is information that Mom knew for the most part. But they really need help to find me a few different diets that will keep me eating.
Even when maybe I don’t feel so good. As I have mentioned before, I get very picky within a few days of a pancreatic flare up. So, having a few options may be helpful.
The problem with me is that I don’t like much cat food. I think I may end up being the the most challenging patient they have ever had.
I did make Dr. Valerie lose her train of thought when I gazed up at her as she was explaining things to Mom and Dad. She had to say, “wow, he is just so handsome”. Mom said, “oh, thank you”. I said, “Yes, yes I am”.
Today, I was hauled off to get my glucose curve. Mom still thinks my levels are always to high. One of my first curves was very good. The last one never dropped to a good range. I will give you an update later. They were very happy to see me and told me what a good boy I am.
They call me their rock star…
Mom just rolls her eyes. She knows how that goes to my head and I become sooo difficult at home. She said if I was a female, I would be the definition of a Diva.
I like rock star. Definitely works for me!!!
dood...ewe iza rock star and ya got it goin on buddy N we dont wanna sound crazed but if ya dont like cat food, why knot switch ta dog food...if ya like it, then ya would just knead to make sure ya added taurine ta de food N ewe R set...ifa dawg can eat kitteh foodz why cant a kitteh eat dawg foods....itz WAY better than stoooooooooopid burd turkee ore chcikn anymew !!!
MOL, rock star it is!!! You know what mom does for cousin Midnight who has kidney disease and gets picky easy and also gets sick easy if she doesn't eat too? She buys Purebites freeze dried treats and crumbles them up all over her food. Works every time! Works even for us too when we are having picky days. Does your mom try anything like that or even appetite flakes? We have no new ones on our site from Dr. Beckers.
Dood, the problem is I like people food..I would rather eat a krispy crème donut then fancy feast.. Give me chicken nuggets....happy…meow mix…not happy. Mom says I got issues..
Mom has those on order and some other treats and food from
the company that makes my Felidae. I didn’t like the first round of food the vet gave me. So, we will need to get another banquet of choices..MOL
well duh Biggles we like that stuff! But you can't have it and no kitty should have those things. It's bad for us.
Someone needs to get it through my thick head that I am not going to get it. I am very stubborn.
I happen to have a big paw for smakin' if you need it! MOL.
Hi Biggles, I like to think of you as a ROCK STAR too!
Did your mom order the chicken treats? I really think that crumbled on your food, you will eat anything! My bros are all act insane when mom brings out the bag!
Love and purrs
Oh yes. But it seems like everything is on back order.
I am hoping one of your suggestions works. Anything to
help me like my food better.
Thank you everyone!!
