Cat Food And Nutrition / Re: The on-going ever-evolving process of feeding Mazy cat

We talked again about the coughing

I must have missed that there was coughing.  How long has it been going on?
Thanks Pookie, seem to have missed your post before. Well using a candle to warm the food never occurred to me, that would work in a pinch for sure! Except I don't have any candles or tea lights here.  Guess I should get some.

Mazy cat had her check up and blood taken for the re-test after being on the denosyl for the last 6 weeks. 

I have been meaning to update this thread but was feeling so low about it that I didn't.

You remember the trouble I had when I went to the new formula of the Rad Cat turkey.  Well Now we're having the same trouble with the new formula chicken.  I thought I had one more of the old formula and all this month was going to be the transition month.  However much to my dismay, I was wrong and all I had left was new formula, with no time to transition.

So (DUMB IDIOT) for some reason I reasoned to myself well she's already transitioned to the turkey so it should be fine, so just start her on the new chicken.

What on earth made me think that?  How can I be so stupid, seriously?

Well of course it wasn't all right and while she seemed okay with it the first day, by the second day she was not and she puked three days in a row, the third day being she brought up everything she ate, so I finally stopped feeding her anything.

I've taken her off the chicken, and she's eating just the Rad Cat turkey (in her RC portions) while I back up, cut up the chicken into tinier pieces, and start to re introduce it a tenth of an ounce at a time.

I really don't know what I was thinking.  I transition her to everything when it's a new batch.  All meats, EZc, even her supplements, when I am getting low, if the next bottle is a new batch number, I transition slowly.


Anyway she survived her check up and blood work and having her anal glands expressed.  I finally remembered to ask for the GI panel.  Vet said they were working on going direct to Texas tech for the GI panels which would make it less expensive than going through Antech first but I didn't want to wait for them to set that up. She didn't know when it would be in place.  The GI panel is dreadfully expensive, but I don't care.  So she had her regular blood work and the GI panel.

Vet wanted to look in her mouth but I said no.  I said if you want to give her a whiff of gas, and look, that is fine with me, but I am not putting her through that awake.  You know she won't let you and it just gets her all worked up.

You may remember, last time I made them stop trying, too.  When they took her back for the bloods that time she was gone a very long time and I suspected they were trying again to look in her moth, which suspicion was confirmed when the tech reported Mazy cat bit her through the gauntlet. (served you right, is what I thought to myself)

This time she was gone only a few minutes, and right back to me, all settled in her carrier.

We talked again about the coughing, and vet said again to just keep monitoring and if it starts to get excessive, we'll do an x ray of her lungs. She asked if it was during exercise and I said no, Mazy cat plays quite hard every night and never coughs or gets out of breath when playing.  It's usually when she is at rest, or asleep, when she coughs.

Now she's had a tiny bit of breakfast (it will take me a long time to feed her today) and is washing the morning stress and smells off on the down throw with the heating pad on under it.

Games / Kartoffelkreig

Free. . .For when you're bored beyond bored!

Kartoffelkreig! In German, the word “kreig” means “war”. And of course, “Kartoffel” means — pardon me while I look this up — “potato”.

Wait, that can’t be right.

Imgur user Michael Cthulhu has apparently created an entire game based on the idea of battling potato mechs, and decided to just give it away for free.

The instructions include not only the rules for play, which are pretty simple, but the scoring sheets and the patterns you need to make your own game pieces. Glue the printed sheets to some black foam core, cut them out with a pen knife, print up copies of the rules and scoring sheets, and find some potatoes.

It looks like it ought to be fun, and looking over the rules, they seem to be play balanced reasonably well and not too complicated. While setup will definitely take you some serious time, learning to play and teaching others to play takes just minutes. In theory, you could just cut out the parts from paper and do it all with chits, but somehow we don’t think it would be as much fun.

I think it sounds creepy.  Probably just something different that one has to get used to the idea.  Kinda like it took me a long time to feed the cats rabbit meat.  Rabbits are cute little furry creatures.... not food.   Silly7
Dog fur as a coat... just seems weird.
But I also think cat toys made out of fur is weird.
I don't wear wool either.  :)
Can open worms everywhere. Horrifying to think how long this has been going on. The corruption in the pet food industry is unfathomable.
General Discussion / Re: If you want to grow elderberries

My plants are here! They look nice. Both types of the elderberries and the fig too are just coming out of dormancy and beginning to bud.

Surprised though that the Yorks are in 4" pots when it says on the site 2.5 pot--I didn't pay attention to the link because it clearly says "4" in the link, but that would have just confused me when I was ordering.
