The Changes are Coming

Carmine hangs out in Milita's heated bed.
Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Yous know how the Mom said there were going to be some, "major changes," around heres?  Well, mes decided to ask hers about that, and here is how it wented.

Carmine: Mom, yous said there is going to be some major changes taking place around heres.  Yous know wes kitties hate change!  So what is wes talking about heres?

Mom Sierra: Don't worry, Carmine.  I know you and Lita don't like change.  We will be implementing the change very gradually so you have a lot of time to adapt.  

The vet Lita saw last week wants you two to start eating a new diet.  

Carmine: A new diet, huh?  Mes and Lita happen to like the diet wes has now.

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday, Lita saw a new vet. I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful I am that we went to see her. She spent two and a half hours getting to know all about Lita, answering my questions, and addressing my concerns. I have never had a veterinarian read through Lita's entire medical history let alone ask all about the important events in her life the way this vet did. She even got down on the floor with me and Lita to weigh and examine her!

Lita has found vet visits incredibly stressful ever since her traumatic experience two years ago. So imagine my surprise when Lita hopped up on the bench next to me, curled up, purred, and had a nap!! Even before her traumatic experience, I have never seen her that calm at the vet. I think this has a lot to do with how calm this vet was as well as how she was approached and treated.

Mancat Monday

Carmine lays on my pillow.
Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Mes has been doing something new lately.  Mes likes to sleep on the Mom's pillow!  Mes used to sleep by hers pillow a lot when hers went to sleeps, but now mes will crawl on the pillow by hers head sometimes when hers is sleeping.  Hers says hers likes to wake up and find mes there.  Sometimes mes sleeps on hers pillow during the day, too.  

The Mom says hers wishes hers could just stay in bed and sleep by mes tomorrows instead of going to the yucky dentist!  Mes feels bad for hers 'cause hers shakes at the dentist like mes does at the vet.  So if you could send hers a few purrs, maybe that would help hers feel less scared.  

Mes hopes you all has a wonderful day!

Wellness CORE Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Topper Review

This post is sponsored by Chewy.com.  

A box of Wellness CORE Boneless Chicken Grain-Free Wet Cat Food Toppers.

As many of you already know, Carmine has chronic pancreatitis.  He is on a regimen of anti-nausea medications and Prednisolone to treat his condition, and he is doing really well these days.  However, there are occasions where he's still a little fussy about his wet (canned food) meals. 

It's at these times when I will put a little "incentive" on top of his wet food to get him to start eating it.  So, I was excited last month when these Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Boneless Chicken Wet Cat Food Toppers were being offered for review through Chewy.com's Blogger Influencer Outreach Program.

Lita: What do we have here?

Some Words on Wednesday from Milita

Hi everyone, it's Lita today.

My leg has continued to give me a hard time lately.  It has been cold and rainy here the past few days, too, and the Mom says that probably doesn't help with my arthritis pain any.  

The Mom is starting to talk about getting me a "second opinion" on my leg.  She says she couldn't live with herself if there is something more she and the vet can do to help me and she didn't find out about it.
