Hopefully, all is well. We took Willow to the vet. The poor thing, it was a rather painful process to fix what was going on, but soon we were on our way home with a bottle of medicine and Prescription Diet canned food. He’ll be on it for two weeks (two weeks of one can per day; and that’s a 5.5 ounce can! Some diet, my Willow won’t be poofy anymore, he’ll be fat!) and things should be fine. Then he’ll be on a Prescription Diet dry food (supplemented with some canned food) basically for life.
Our cats are no strangers to diets though. Willow takes it rather well. The way he’s eating now, he has three quarters of a cup of food every day. This has given him some sort of a waist. Trying to limit Amber in how much she eats, however, is close to a nightmare. Always begging for food and throwing herself in front of you when you’re walking. If you don’t close your doors at night when you go to bed, she will come wake you up at four o’clock in the morning to have you feed her. She gets a cup a day (plus any additional bits we give her if she wakes us up at night!). Even though she’s smaller, she is far more active than Willow, so the extra quarter cup doesn’t make a difference. (Although in her opinion, she should have an additional quarter cup!)
That’s all for now!
