Maestro is very fussy about what he eats
We  usually buy onlywhat we know?Undecided he eats
Cali is"a good eater"  she likes & eats everything.
When we want to try a new food onMaestro; we do so w/o fear of wasting food;'cuz we know calli will eat it even if he won't.
Hubby makes up a "formula" that both kitties enjoy:
 2-3TBS dry cat chow( sr formula, easier for them tod igest & more calories for fussy Maestro, so we don't worry too much, if he's"OFF HIS FEED")

 1-2 (rounded TBS canned food( everything but mixed grill)  
3TBS warm water.
Stir briefly; talksweetly  & serve.
The warm water & canned food turn into a meaty/fishy gravy that both cats enjoy
Maestro always somehow gets his food out of the center of the bowl &  over to the edges.He likes us to use a spoon or our finger( yech) to bring leftover mixture  out of the corners & back to the center of the bowl.
Cali manages,on her own to twist her head & neck, just so to get every last drop & crumb of food wherever it is in the bowl.
We gladly do whatever is reqired to get our fussy/skinny boy to eat.
the only time(s) Maestro is not fussy is when we pour the liquid from a can of human tuna over his food; but the vet is displeased if/when we allow him this luxury more than one day a week.
Maestro also loves boloney or spiced ham; too salty warns the vet;limit it to keep him healthy.Cali likes poached salmon ; ice cream & pieces of roast beef; so do I so she doesn't get much of it!  Wink

Sadly, our 16 year old kitty is sick with a liver problem along with his heart murmur. We have been medicating him for over a month and force feeding him with a syringe of liquid food. He still seems perky and his eyes are bright. The jaundice is gone, but we are having a hard time knowing that his days are numbered. Dusty is the sweetest, gentlest kitty and we will miss him when he goes.

Angela:  So sorry to hear about your kitty.

Angela, We lost our Sassy cat in Aug. She was 2 days short of her 16th birthday. We always called her our
love cat. She just loved to be held. She was always the first one to welcome a new cat. She loved everyone!!
We miss her so much, but we really have great memories. We thought a couple of times that she wouldn't
make it, but she always bounced back. Good luck and just enjoy your time with him.

In Response to Re: Puppy Dogs and Kitty Cats Share some of the things you do and cook for your Buddies : Hi Carol ,I would love to hear your stories about your Kitties! I think most of us are animal lovers.I watched some horrible videos on You tube broad cast yourself.It was about euthanasia.So many Millions of cats and dogs destroyed each year because of irresponsible breeders and people not spaying and neutering their pets.People that can't afford to have an animal shouldn't own one,there are costs for owning a pet.Our local APL charge for dropping off unwanted animals it's a sixty dollar charge and double that outside of our county.Does this stop people?Some it does but I think that these kinds of people will just abandon these poor creatures on the streets and country roads.Last year when I was looking for another pup,I was talking with one of the Deputies and she told me they get an average of sixty dogs a week and more cats.Most of these won't find a home.This breaks my heart.

Gale, We had all of our cats fixed! It breaks my heart too. Most of our cats are rescue cats. We also feed 4
outside cats. The people who own them don't feed them much and let them run all over. They scratch on our
door and we feed them. Some people just should not have any pets! I hate to even think about how many animals
have been put to sleep. We just enjoy our cats so much!!!

Gale - I don't give my dogs rawhide bones either.  They can choke on rawhide.  Nylabone is great for chewing and not harmful.  They have Nylabone at Walmart around the hanging toys.
Posted by DiAnne H


Hi Susan and DiAnne, I only let Romeo have them while I supervise,and I have not bought one in awhile now.He has the whole thing apart in a day or two.I have never seen a pup tear at a bone like that,none of my other dogs did that.I give him large cooked marrow bones and also under supervision.He does have a Nyla bone and that too he chews so hard he breaks pieces off so I have to watch him with those also.We had Chinese food about a month ago and I threw out the rib bones and he got one out of the garbage and I tried to get it from him and he swallowed it whole.This dog is a bottomless pit,he eats and eats,it's not like he doesn't get anything.I called the Vet and they told me to keep an eye on him and to bring him in if he was in any pain or any blood.He passed it on his own a couple of days later.I have to watch this one like a two year old child.I broke a glass not too long ago and thought I had it all picked up,awhile later he is chewing on a piece that must have gone down the stairs.He worries me.I don't know if this is due to his breed,or what.I keep saying he is part goat.I love him so much but he worries me crazy.

Gale, Absolutly!  The entire group seems to love, enjoy and spoil these critters.  I don't know what I would do without my Cooper.  He did the same thing with a broken glass piece I missed. I, also, must keep an EYE on him.  My Bailey, Jack Russell,  would grab anything and fast & I could not get it from him so I know how ornrey they can be!!    This Maltese is a bit more laid back and will wait to see if I will give him a  "Cookie"  They are so cute and I am HOOKED.

Glad you are aware of the risks with the raw hide.  I'm to scared to use them.

Have a GREAT DAY!

Hi DiAnne,Romeo is so fast too and sneaky LOL.For some reason he likes peppermint,I always carry peppermint candies or gum in my purse.I have to make sure and keep it closed or he sticks his nose in their and pulls it out and I never see him do it.I think he was a pick pocket in another life

Our cat thinks he is a dog because every time I give a treat to our dogs Tippy has to have one too.  Lately I have caught him trying to open the cabinet door on the island which is floor level.  Thank goodness it has a tight latch or he and the dogs would be helping themselves to treats whenever they wanted them!

Well, as I sit here I now have two, yes 2 "puppies" at my feet.
Vienna my mini doxie is now the "older sister" to a 18 week old mini doxie. 
The new member of the family is Hana. 
Hana has long hair, something that I said I would never get.  I never wanted a pet that requires more grooming than I do!
Hana is very sweet, but like all puppies she chews. All the toys that surround her, why does she chew on my toes, my pants, the newspaper and anything else that happens to catch her eye.
It is so funny to watch these two race around tumbling together.

Both sit and watch while I am cooking.  Both love carrots.  I try not to feed them a lot of "people food" and I do try to keep the amount they eat under control.  Doxie's gain weight easily and it is so hard on them.
I wish they would control what I eat as much as I control what they eat! (I gain weight easily and it is hard on me as well.)

I am going to look at a new baby tonight! I'm so excited,I hope this will be the one,she is a Min Pin / Chihuahua mix.Nikki I see you were sucked in by another sweet puppy,good for you and her too! It's OK to give them a little people food,especially veggies,that is good for them.Romeo loves salad,he aways waits when I'm making salad hoping that I drop some on the floor.Enjoy your new puppy.

Sucked in is a perfect description... the brown eyes...the long ears...
As for the treats, I have no problem giving them fruits and veggies.  I try to keep the "fattening" stuff to a minimum. Even dog treats, biscuits and the like are small bits.  They do get a treat or "cookie" when they go into the crate and now housebreaking the puppy she gets one when she "goes" outside.  I caught her mid "piddle" in the kitchen and she looked at me like where is my cookie?  took her outside and she finished and then she got her cookie.  With luck she will have me trained soon.  I keep thinking why am I doing this AGAIN?

Gale, You got your puppy!!!! Awesome!!! We have a black and white cat that we call Princess. Her
spots are just like a black and white cow[holstein]. She has short stocky legs and is wide like a
cow. We sometimes call her our cow cat. Can you tell I was raised on a dairy farm? I am so happy
that you got her. She is maybe a pound!!! How big will she get???
