Karen Jo: Lazy Mom has been exhausted, slightly discouraged and SOOO tired of cold and snow. The day before yesterday it was finally warm enough to open the window for a little while. Yesterday a freezing wind came howling down from the higher mountains and this morning I woke up to below freezing temperature and got snow blown in my face as I walked to work.
Mom finally found something that I will eat with the Benefiber in it. It is Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys. She has been putting the pro-biotic in it, too, as I stopped eating the baby food. At least I wouldn't eat more than half of the baby food.
Karen Jo: This is where the slightly discouraged part comes in. I have been getting both your pro-biotic and Benefiber in you for almost a week and you show no improvement at all. If anything, you are acting like you feel even worse. You have been sitting around in meatloaf position a lot and you act like you feel cold. You found a new napping spot where I put a box in front of the heat register in your old safe room, so some of the heat is reflected back.
It makes a great mancat cave. The weather has been awful, so I want a warm spot to nap. I have pawed at my nip ball a couple of times.
Karen Jo: Yes, and I find that encouraging. However, you have also been walking around with your tail at half-mast a bit, too.
I never do that for long. Mostly I do it when I discover that there is nothing new in my food bowl or my treat dish and when I want you to pay attention to me. The tail goes right back up when you give me some petting.
Karen Jo: That's true. It's just that you never used to have your tail at half-mast, except when you walked to the door to see if it was me coming home. The tail always went up when you recognized me. Now sometimes the tail doesn't go up again until I pick up your food dish to feed you. At least I can be thankful that you always make your poop puddles in your litter box. I am also thankful that you eat most of your regular food and your new food with your medicines in it. I'll give it another week and if the poop puddles don't improve, it's back to the vet. What bugs me is that sometimes your poop will get just a little bit thicker, then go right back to being watery. It is sooo frustrating.
