Good News


This is an old picture of me scarfing up every last crumb of my Temptation. It's appropriate because I have been asking for more Temptations than ever in the last couple of days. I am one hungry boy now. Mom got up early to go to the litter box room and I joined her and started telling her that I wanted breakfast, like right now! She went into the kitchen and noticed that I had been eating in the night, which I hadn't been doing. While she was getting my Medley and pro-biotic ready, I ate up some of the Stinky Goodness that I hadn't finished. While she was getting my Stinky Goodness, I ate up all of my Medley and even licked the dish clean. That's a speed record for my eating up my food. Then I started in on the new Stinky Goodness. I didn't eat a whole lot of that, but I ate some more later, while Mom was back in bed. When she got up for the day and gave me my Interferon, I wanted my elevenses, cause she slept right through second breakfast. I ate up all my Medley again. I have been demanding new food, and getting it, throughout the day and eating quite a bit of it. I also ate almost a quarter bowl of my kitten chow. Mom thinks I ate at least a whole can's worth of wet food today. She is so happy because she thought maybe my increase in appetite yesterday was just due to the shot. She has seen this before. When I was getting my steroid shots, I would act all frisky and hungry, but it only lasted about 24 hours. I am still making poop puddles, but it is all pudding poop and it may even be just a tiny bit thicker.

The really great thing is that Mom has stopped torturing me with those super-yucky pills. I got a great new treat today instead. They are soft and yummy and I really like them.

Karen Jo: Shhh! Don't anyone dare tell Herman that his new treats are pill pockets.
