Karen Jo: It's just that now you don't play at all and that worries me. Otherwise, you are acting normal. You chitter at the birds; you snoopervise my cooking very closely; you cuddle with me in bed and wake me up for breakfast. I am now going to talk about poop, so stop here if you don't want to learn more than you probably want to about Herman's litter box.
I am really confused now. I found both poop puddles and normal poop in the litter box this morning. My problem is that it looks like the normal poop came after yesterday's poop puddles, but before the ones I found this morning. Herman is back on the diet that he was eating when he first moved in, except for the sardines, but he was getting tuna almost daily at his foster Mom's, and he didn't make poop puddles then. Can it be taking this long for the effects of The Missing Link to wear off? Could giving him The Missing Link have caused him to develop a more sensitive tummy? I just don't know what to do. His appetite is normal and he is eating more of his Fancy Feast than he was, but still leaves it totally alone in favor of his dry food sometimes. He drinks quite a bit, especially from the faucet. I feel sure that he isn't sick, because he doesn't act like a sick cat. He is very interested in his surroundings and he's not hiding or lethargic. If the poop puddles don't stop soon, I am going to have to take him to the vet, because it's just not healthy for it to go on for so long.
