|Purred: Wed Jan 30, '13 3:55pm PST |
|I've got a young female Savannah cat, 1 1/2 yrs old, 8 1/2 lean pounds of muscle.
We feed her a pre-ground raw, Furry Foodie, 2oz 3x a day.
We used to mix in chicken gizzards for the teeth cleaning benefit until she regurgitated a couple of times, and I figured either I got a bad batch, or else cut the pieces too big.
So then I left out the gizzards and just gave her the pre-made food, and she regurgitated maybe one or two more times after that, but not since.
Now I'm just trying to figure out what I did wrong... Did she bruise her throat trying to choke down a big piece of gizzard, and so threw up a couple more times while she was healing up?
She's a very high energy cat, so playtime for her (at least with me) involves lots of running and jumping, usually till she's short-winded a bit (or has that "grinning" look she gets when she's breathing hard).
I know with people, you're not supposed to exercise and eat too close together. Could too much exercise too near mealtimes be contributing to her regurgitation?
Thanks in advance!
