Some people have mentioned that canned pumpkin is good for cats that suffer from hair balls.
I have taken a look online and found this
I found some on Amazon at £10.00 for 3 tins,
I then looked at our supermarkets and saw that Waitrose and Sainsbury do exactly the same make for £1.65 per tin.
What's going on there then, it means that Amazon tins are twice the price of our supermarket.
Amazon are cheating the public on that one.
I shall be getting a can today and hope that Rupert accepts it.
I have read that some cats love it as a treat so here's keeping my fingers crossed.
Here he is when just a small kitten, he still has that adorable face now, no wonder we love him so.
I think it's the eyes, they are sort of sad.
He is eating and drinking okay so it's all looking hopeful except all of the others are being snooty to him. I expect he still smells a bit vetty.
Last night he just wanted cuddles and fuss and more of the same , and he got it in spadefuls.
Thanks for the suggestions for the hairball but I'll certainly try them if the pumpkin doesn't go down well.
So, once again we will try to relax and get some normality into our days, it seems lately that everyday has a trauma.
Tom is having to adjust his way of life and accept that he is unable to do certain things anymore and it's not easy for either of us.
Until now he has soldiered on trying to keep doing the everyday normal things but it's proving to be unhelpful to his breathing so after another pow wow we have decided that carrying shopping or anything of any weight is out, also bending is a problem as it restricts his breath.
The stair lift will have to be used at all times and one or two other adjustments.
It's not nice when panic takes over when trying to get the next breath, for him or for me to be there and not able to help.
Of course this last weekend didn't help as stress also makes things worse but we are over all that now and the sun is out.
What more could we want.
