Mom says I have the most expressive face of any kitteh she has ever known. Here you can see my feelings about Leia being fed separately AND getting more (Mom's note: only more at a time) than me. I'm just doing the kitteh-loaf here cuz I know if I try to move in, she will stop me. MOUSES!
We hope all our furriends have a great Caturday. We're rather busy ourselves. Mom has the bugs again, we're helping with that. Of course we don't actually see any bugs, but she swears she has them. So we're standing ready to swat the tar out of them when they do appear.
From the Mom:
We are now on the fun journey of finding gushy noms that the cats will eat. I bought a selection at Petsmart and Petsupermaket today. BTW, I very much appreciate Petsupermarket's willingness to take back the opened bag of dry kibble they can't eat, and haven't eaten since we started the wet. This bag was $25.99. I didn't have a receipt, so they gave me store credit. That paid for today's purchases. TY Petsupermarket!
Toby's weight loss wasn't my doing. I didn't even realize until the vet visit. He was 20.7 in Nov. and 18 three weeks ago. I feel like a failure as pet parent; Leia has also lost weight so I'm inclined to think they just didn't like the Wellness Inner Core kibble. Sometimes, we just don't see the truth about what we see every day. At this point I don't want either of them to lose any more weight.
Once a week, for awhile, I will post on the results of the food tastings. We want our furriends to know how the felines are doing, and also for any other hoomins out there who might be thinking about switching to wet or adding it. I'd planned on keeping kibble as a side dish but have been overruled by the Committee of Two Tails.
The goal is quality grain free, but frankly, that is very expensive for two cats. My plan is to mix some of the best with some of the not quite as good. Green papers always matter, and at $2 or more per can for some, like Wellness, it adds up very fast.
So far I don't like:
• Science Diet Smart Balance Grain Free or Nature's Balance Grain Free. SB looks like dog size chunks and NB has too-large chicken strips. Both cats enjoyed licking the gravy off them but didn't really eat any of it. They probably would have liked both more had they been more mashed up.
• Science Diet I/D is very well received and I plan to always have some just in case, and to use as a base for trying other foods.
• Evo Grain Free is also popular. As you can see from the picture, there is an assortment here. I plan to try all the grain frees and quality non grain free. Eventually we will settle on a paw-full that work for taste, quality and price.
I'll be back next Sunday with more results. Ciao!
