Eating Tasty Food

Even though I only gained 1 ounce when I went to the vet last week, I'm eating pretty well.  Mom is trying to feed me my stinky goodness twice a day to make sure I'm getting my medicine.  I have to have both the Cosequin and now some Metamucil each day.  I've graduated to eating some in the living room and the office. I still make a mess on my carpet, which makes me an excellent participant in the Shabby Chic Day sponsored by Milo and Alfie on April 11.


At night, our routine (after eating the stinky goodness) is for me to jump on the couch beside mom and eat my crunchies.  The vet said she didn't care what crunchy food I ate as long as I was eating, so I'm really enjoying the Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul dry food.  Of course, I want mom to let me eat out of her hand . . .

 
Don't forget to entry the contest to win 3 sample bags of the crunchy food, a $30 gift card to thedoggystore.com, and a copy of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul book.  Just leave a comment on Tuesday's post stating that you would like to be included in the contest.

Now to finish up my delicious crunchies . . .  (If you look really close, you can see my cute pink tongue)

Keep eating Praline - you need to try and gain another ounce for the next time you get weighed. Your mom won't mind the crumbs on the floor either.

Praline dear, we're so glad to hear you're eating and hope you continue to feel better.

Tia said...

Wow, Praline, you have that people of yours well trained! My human says I can eat from a bowl or else! Heartless beast! Got any tips for me on how to make her as pliant as yours is? The human says I need to gain some weight too. Maybe if I let her see what you've been doing, she'll realise it's necessary to hand feed me! It's good news that you're putting some weight back on. Keep up the good work!

OKcats said...

Paula, can you give me more information on the Metamucil you're feeding Miss Praline? I read somewhere else a while back that it could be used for cats, and I even bought some, but I wasn't sure how much to use or if it was even appropriate. Fuzzy seems to sometimes have trouble in the litter box, and her poos are very small and dry. I was thinking that giving her a little Metamucil in wet food may help out, but I may also be crazy. I was just curious as to why you were giving it to Miss Praline and how much.

Thanks for any help you can give! And that's wonderful news that she's eating more!!

Jana, mom of the OKCats

Laila and Minchie said...

Those crunchies sure do look yummy!

JC said...

I am so glad you are eating. Love you !!!

IndyRose said...

My poor Georgie had a very hard time eating too and lost quite a bit of weight. Maybe Praline would like nice rich kitten food like Georgie did! Try warming the tinned food too.

It is a very cute pink tongue, Miss Praline! Keep eating sweet girl, we is purring and cheering for you.

CCL Wendy said...

Oh Praline! It warms my heart to see you eating well like that. You probably lost weight over time, so it will take a while to gain some back. Even 1 oz. is a step in the right direction.

I'm sure your Mommy is happy for you to make a mess on the carpet because it means you're getting the nutrition you need.

We're still purring hard for you, dear.

OKcats said...

Thank you so very much for leaving me that message. It was exactly what I was looking for! I hope it works for Miss Praline!!!!

brandi said...
