Mom was trying to get a picture of my floofy tummy, but I decided that I was very interested in the camera, so she got my face instead. Mom has started giving me smaller portions of stinky goodness and sometimes I eat it all up. She has started just giving me more when I ask for it, instead of putting out more when I finish what is in my dish. This seems to be working better. Daisy suggested that I may not get really hungry because there is food out all the time and I can always nibble. This is exactly what I do. I rarely eat much at any one time, but I eat very often. Mom is feeding me this way because this is the way my foster Mom told her to feed me. Mom isn't sure if this is the best way to feed me, but it has been working so far. I have gained a bit of weight, which is a good thing for a cat with FeLV.
Karen Jo: I will start looking for healthier food for Herman soon, but the only healthy-type food I have found in town is Newman's Own and I haven't read the label yet. I did order Herman some The Missing Link powder to put on his food to add some vitamins and fatty acids. I tried to order the ingredients for Dr. Pritchard's Healthy Powder, but when I tried to order the brewer's yeast for cats a warning came up that this cannot be shipped to New Mexico. I will try to find the other ingredients a bit later. I want to make Herman some of the mackerel loaf, as that sounds really good for him.
I wouldn't play with Mom today. She put on her work uniform and I think I recognized it. I didn't want her to go back to work. I wouldn't even play with her when she got home, though I did let her pet me some. I just wanted my dinner. I ate up the stinky goodness she gave me, then meowed for some more about an hour later. She gave it to me and I ate some of it. Other than wanting to be fed, I have been mostly ignoring her. I guess I feel a bit sulky about being left alone again while she goes to work. I really got used to having her around all the time.
Karen Jo: I'm sorry, Herman, but I have to go to work. You will get used to the routine again. I hope you won't stay sulky long. I miss playing with you.
