I am 8 weeks pregos and my 2 year old calico won’t leave me alone. She follows me every where, at the dinner table she’s at my feet patting my legs every once in awhile so I know she’s there, to the bathroom or sitting on the couch shes on me , she wakes me up at night usually when I am in the midst of a pregnancy dream. I would never dream of giving her away her care and concern for me only strengths our family bond so for the next 7 more months I will have to dig my self of from underneath my ball of fur and kneeding claws and do my best to remember its all in the name of love!! Hers for me and mine for her at least I don’t have to ask ” has anyone seen Maggie?” Lol

She gets 2 tablespoons of commercial dry food per day just to make sure she gets all the nutrients, but it is grain-free if not carbohydrate free. She is a nice 7 lbs, active and with wonderfully soft fur. Besides mostly getting meat protein, we have meal times, not free-feeding all day.

I strongly believe that a species appropriate diet can solve or prevent a lot of problems. I wonder if getting your Kitty onto a wet diet, or maybe even a raw diet, may not only solve the weight issue, but also eliminate the allergy issue…

They really liked Innova EVO. We tried Wellness CORE but they didn’t like that as much. But Moo’s blood sugar wasn’t dropping enough so we ended up having to go with the canned food anyway.

She looks like a normal cat now. You can start by buying the GRAIN FREE dry and gradually cutting it back.
I have 7 rescue cats and believe me, they all have different tastes in wet food! It takes extra time but you just have to keep trying different brands and different tastes with in the brands. They also will love one for awhile and then not eat it anymore after a while. It is a big ever changing experiment.
