The other girls are going to be so envious of Myrtle. She will be more fashionable than CWS.

We think we finally found out what has been making Violet sick!

Monkey has a play tower by a window and we have her food dish on the second to top tier which lines up with the window sill. We ironically put it here so that Violet wouldn't steal Monkey's food. Monkey and Violet get the same brand of food from the vet, but of course it is different. Violet's dry dog food is specially formulated for her allergies and Monkey is getting a mix of kitten and cat food to slowly introduce the new food.

Monkey makes a mess when she eats and there are always crumbs on the mat under her dish and we have seen Violet over there and think she has been grabbing anything that falls to the floor. The cat food has grains in it that Violet shouldn't have.

So, now we have to keep watch that there are no crumbs on the carpet that Violet can get. I have a call into the Vet's office but I am sure he will agree this could be the problem because Violet is so sensitive to certain things....just like her human parents.

I am so glad it is nothing more serious.

It's not really a video. It's an animated "gif". I took several pictures with my phone. Google+ backed them up and turned them into that little animation.

It's supposed to rain tonight. I really think it's rain water he wants. If there isn't enough, I will make some puddles. Last night and this morning he made his own puddles.

Laurie, I really hope you have found the source of Violet's problems. Can you get a grain free cat food? Cats don't really have any need/use for grains and can't get any nutrition out of them. They simply don't produce the enzymes needed to digest grain.

I just got a call from the vet who will come here and euthanize Shreddy. He got a bit of a reprieve, or should I say Stirling and I got a reprieve.

She says that if his bladder was blocked, he wouldn't be eating, he would probably be trying to pee, and he might be vomiting. The fact that he hasn't pooped is of less concern, since he is eating, but not much. She thinks it's fine to wait since he is alert, drinking, eating (some), walking around, and doesn't appear to be in pain.

She wants me to call her with an update tomorrow. We'll take it day by day.

I know this sounds awful, but it will be easier on me if I see him suffer a little bit.
