Cat Diet Improved

November 2021
.
This short post is in reference to previous post.
.
This is just a quick summary of what has been implemented. My cats weigh 7 to 8 lbs each
.
♦ Raw ground sirloin 1 tbsp each.
.
♦ Cooked chicken thighs a few scoops on top of cat food. Substituted a raw chicken heart or chicken liver (about 1 or 2 tsp.)
.
Olive oil 1/2 tsp per day (AM)
.
Lysine 1/8 tsp per day, until improvement in both cats, then 1/8 tsp twice a week.
.
Taurine 1 scoop per day per cat. No side effects for giving too much. ( Of course a person needs to be realistic in the amount.)
.
Oratene Toothpaste Gel after each meal.
.
SeaMeal 1/8 tsp twice a day.
.
Bone meal seems to be about 1/8 tsp per 1 oz of food. Since I am adding cans, I probably only need 1/8 tsp per day per cat.
.
Note: Always consult your vet. This is only my experience for my cats. I am not a vet and can’t advise you how to feed your cats.

Stomatitis in Cats

 

Stomatitis sounds like something to do with the stomach… but it is not. Inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth, which may involve the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and roof or floor of the mouth. The word “stomatitis” literally means inflammation of the mouth. (reference: Medical Dictionary)

Gingivitis

.

Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums. Bleeding is a primary symptom, and other symptoms include swelling, redness, pain, and difficulty in chewing. (reference: Medical Dictionary)

No Longer a Kitten

Lucy sliding into tissue paper.

 

Hard to believe Lucy celebrated her first birthday on 9-17-2021. We brought her home exactly 8 months ago. Two-thirds of her short life, has been with us. Sad when they start to get bigger and not a cute little bundle of fur as when you bring them home. We all know baby animals are so adorably cute, hard to resist. She was such a tiny little kitten, just a handful. Home coming.

 

And if you’re familiar with Siamese, you know they never quite grow up. Now she is still a handful of mischief. Do love every minute of it… well maybe not  sometimes as you can read below. But keeping them healthy and inspired with fun things to do, they can bring you hours of laughter and joy.

 

She has graced our home with laughter and love. A happy, comical cat, and also mischievous.

Lily and Lucy both have red gums. There has been improvement since I first started on this quest. Lily’s breath improved. Their coat is silkier. Still, there wasn’t enough progress.

 

By appointment time for both cats, I made a recent purchase of cat food. Ugh.

The Cat Toy Destruction

July 2021

Lucy and the end of the pink ball.

Saved many cat toys over the years. They received mild abuse, but most never used.

 

Then Lily joined us 8 months ago and Lucy 6 ½ months.

 

I dragged them out of boxes stored from our move 6 years ago. Our then 10-year-old Molly only played with a few. No point in having them scattered on the floor when she wasn’t interested. Continue reading
