Wednesday, Cloud, Sun and Breeze


A few inquiries about Cleo,

so I thought I should report back...

*

Cleo seems happy
(sitting at the back of my chair right now,

close by to me).

I brushed her thoroughly this morning in an effort

to help her with the hair shedding / hair ball issue

but she still spat one out later this morning

and the same non-clear residue came with it.

So I don't know what is bothering her stomach.

She is eating, drinking and acting fairly normal.

I am limiting her dairy

(she asks for it and it is usually the one thing

I will give her; she also asks for everything else,

from my Peanut Butter and Raspberry Jam sandwiches to

the more understandable summer tuna salad with grapes).

*

I had switched her food a few months ago

as the other food does not seem to be made anymore;

I can't really afford anything fancy

but am avoiding the cheapest of the cheap food,

as I don't trust the almost dollar store priced cat food...

*

I am trying to be more diligent about housekeeping

in case she is nibbling at something unseen to me

but not to her...

*

Well.

Other than this I am trying to balance both

my contract job and the fact that I have

interview preparation to do for next week.

It's all a bit overwhelming.

But God is with us in the midst of it.

To Him I am seeking to look to

instead of the waves...

Cleo seems to have great tastes for a cat :) Praying for you through these next few interviews. Hoping you land something permanent soon!

My parents have a long haired cat (that my sister Mary and I brought home one day about 15 years ago) and it has issues of throwing up a lot, too...and tangles in her hair. For our dog, we get Iams and it's more expensive than many other dog foods, but she eats less! Just like humans, we don't know exactly what's best for animals or what causes health issues...wish we did!

Glad Cleo is feeling a bit better.

have you heard of a pet brush called the Furminator? It gets the loose hair on the undercoat. Every time we use it on Sara we are amazed at how much loose hair it gets. The first time it got enough hair to make a kitten...
