Guys, something our pawrents need to think about as we get older....
Most do, but mom learned the hard way...
If you're Seniors are doing well on a food, don't change it. Be careful of cat treats. Just like some folks who don't have too much fur, our bodies sometimes don't do too well with change. I'm feeling so much better, but I have an appointment with the vet today-my vet! She spoke with my mommy this week, and she said she believes that some of my distress could have been from arthritis-not liking the 'Bub' and some weluva food with fish in it-something I love, but as I get older, is harder for me to tolerate.
I'm feeling much better, actually. Mommy and Daddy wree given a box of arm and hammer multiple cat and they used it and guess what? I like it too and have been 'borrowing' the box when I can. Mommy and daddy may make that a permanent thing. I usually use feline pine-it's always been my litter of choice.
But Big Vet said she's going to examine me to ease mommy's mind. I do drink alot of water in the morning and evening but don't appear dehydrated to daddy or mommy. I have been sitting on the end tale that is covered by a blanket near the window looking out the window and enjoying it. I have also been eating well and using the box. I love my little heating pad that gets heated in the microwave for me and then put under my blaket-it takes the chill off in the morning.
Big Vet told mommy that as we cats get older, we need heat more and we also need a regular diet and may not like some of the foods we used to like, or may not tolerate them as much. She said that if I like pro plan and digest it-which I do, leave it alone. (though mommy did sneak that fiber I wouldn't take into some people tuna and I really enjoyed that!) sneaky mommy! But I did finally poop after that!
