Monday updates

GEORGE

We hope we've solved the problem of pictures not showing up when our blog is viewed using Internet Explorer and that everyone can see our header picture now. Mom had to get help from Photobucket on that one!

Also, thanks to a tip from Kukka-Maria, we learned how to make drop down lists for our side bar links which were getting very long with all the new cat bloggers being added.

For Yuki & Kimiko who asked where we got our new drinking fountain, it came from Pet Supplies +, but they have them at all the large pet supply stores. At about $30 - $40, they're a little expensive but since I need to drink more, Mom went ahead and got it for me. We all like it a lot and play in it so much, Mom had to put a small towel underneath to catch the spills.

My V.E.T. wants me to switch to a diet for senior cats who have kidney problems and suggested giving me canned stinky goodness, but I don't like stinky goodness! So Mom found some pouch food special for senior cats, which has lots of extra liquid like gravy and guess what, I like it! But with my delicate stomach I can't finish a whole pouch so usually the rest of the cats here check out the bowl when I'm done.

MOM

After discovering that my picky boy actually will eat food from a pouch, my plan is to gradually incorporate that with his special dry Science Diet KD. But if I know George, he'll eat the moist food, pick around the dry kibble and lick up all the gravy. But...we have to try and start somewhere!

We are a whole family of gravy eaters. Sometimes Mom doesn't pay attention to what she's buying so we get some. I try to be cute by saying, "Can I get a biscuit with that?" but she's not amused. She says, "You better just eat some of that meat, too, Tiny Boy."

Gobble up that special food George! I have been a bit picky lately and I think Meowm may be thinking about mixing my stinky goodness with my dry food.

Mommy says that even if George just licks up the gravy it's still getting more moisture into him and that's a good thing. Glad he likes the fountain. Mommy would like to get us one but is waiting until we get older 'cuz she thinks we'll just make a mess (we're 5 months old). She's right, we love to make messes. Mostly we get our water from the bathtub, the sinks, and the woofie's bowl. Maybe you can get George to drink from the tap as well. Our brother Vincent who came before us used to hang out in the tub for hours so that he could get drinks. Mommy swears that he came back and taught us all about water, because we like to hang out in the tub and get drinks and get wet too.

Sounds like things are getting better George. I don't like stinky goodness either. In fact I only like one type of crunchies. I hope I never have to give them up!

Wow...I really can't imagine not liking Stinky Goodness...it boggles the mind...in fact, my head hurts just contemplating it...

I hope the new food works for you! And that it tastes good!

Yay, George is drinking more. That's good news.

One good way to get George to eat his dry SD KD kibbles is to crush them finely using a rolling pin and mixing them together evenly with the wet stinky goodness. That way, he won't be able to eat around the kibbles. Works on my kxbc gang.

What a neat fountain you have there. Since Mom has been filtering the water we have been drinking more. Mom tried some gravy food awhile back but we (Gizmo and Patches and I) didn't eat it. Maybe we ought to try it again, maybe our tastes have change. I don't think Cleo has even tried gravy food yet.

Anything to make you better George, that is the main thing.
