Well we asked cats what they thought might be going on with Cheysuli. We liked Harley’s answer best (via Daisy). Daisy said, “Harley has been thinking and thinking, and he figured out that this could be Chey’s way of getting publicity and attention for health care reform!” Perhaps he is right!
At any rate, the latest update with Cheysuli is that she really really likes her bonito fishy flakes. She does not want to eat much else. She is a bit dehydrated, although she is probably drinking water (based on the levels in the dishes). However, it has been particularly hot here and of course we do not have air conditioning, so that could be part of it. We are hoping that she will start eating something besides her fishy flakes soon.
She does lick at some of the other foods–those that she knows, but not many of them. She is not supposed to have her kibble, which is what she really really likes and wants I think. So that is hard. At the moment the main goal is to get enough calories in her. Fortunately the fishy flakes do have real calories and lots of protein which is what she needs, but she does need to eat something more substantial! At least it is all staying down, but we’d feel better if she were eating a bit better (of course she is used to nibbling on kibble all day and then once daily wet food and now she is offered some wet food with her fishy flakes every two hours or so which means she is probably not that hungry).
We continue to thank the blogosphere for their purrs. She is not out of the woods yet, but we think we might see the edge of them!
