I had never realized how attached she was to him until he died, which was a lesson in itself. I tried various methods to help her but really it took a good couple of years before she stopped crying obsessively when I left the house (even just to go get something out of the car!). It didn’t help at all that my job regularly takes me out of town, either. I want to put in a good word for the woo woo communication stuff because one day when I knew I had to go on a trip I picked up Heidi and mentally told her “I will never, ever leave you and not come back, I will ALWAYS come back, and I will ALWAYS be here for you.” Then, every time I went out the door, as I opened the door and stepped out I always looked back at her and sent her a mental picture of myself coming back in the door, as she sat and watched me leave. And it really seemed that it was after that day that her anxiety finally started to subside. I had told her before that I was coming back but not in such an intentional and meaningful way, and it seemed to make a difference.

Our Zoey suffers from constipation. She goes on average about once a week. Can you imagine that? She’s been to the vet a number of times and is on medication, takes miralax and eats only canned foods.

It’s by royal canon I think and is called Fiber Response. It’s a high fiber cat food and has worked great for my kitty. She has crystals torso I feed her a 50/50 mix of the two prescription diets.
