This has been food issue week. Every day someone throws up. It’s almost like a food rental. I shouldn’t be charged full price if it doesn’t stay down!
Mostly it’s Mollie. She’s prone to barfing. The vet thinks she has food allergies but we can’t pinpoint anything specific. She prefers hard kibble but she gets some wet too. She throws up more with the wet but she is an equal opportunity barfer. That means she will throw up if she eats air.
Yesterday it was Gracie. After all the food issues earlier in the year, I have her on normal food at normal times. (Insert fist pump here.) However…when she throws up, it’s with a flair. She eats part of her food, then barfs the whole thing up over the still uneaten good stuff. That forces me to toss the whole thing. *bangs head on table* No, I don’t give her more.
None of this is about hairballs. It’s a mystery. I’m hoping for a less barfy week.
Hazel’s diet: I am the biggest problem with Hazel’s diet. I have a hard time when she stares down at her empty dish. I’m powering through by keeping me busy.
I have moved the dry kibble higher so she can’t jump to eat it and bought her some cat diet kibble. Took me an hour to figure out which was truly for losing weight. Weight management to me means maintaining a healthy weight. I need something that would satisfy her and help her LOSE weight.
End of first week and she lost 6 ounces. Too early to celebrate yet. (Oh go ahead, half a fist bump!)
