We are starting a new regime at night for the pesky cats.
Lately it has been really getting to us the messing about with food at the end of the day when all we want to do it go to bed.
Rupert needs to have the laxative in his food to avoid fur balls, Rowan like her dish of food on the top of 3 stairs that go through the flat and Polly has hers in the bathroom with the door shut. The reason being that when she had the kittens (12 years ago) they always pinched her food, thus she always ate in the bathroom, (I know, we are mad).
Rupert often will not eat his own and jumps off the table (where he usually eats, I know we are mad) to get to the other dishes, this worries us as we don't want him to be ill with a fur ball as the other dishes do not have laxative on them.
ARE YOU KEEPING UP?
So the decision is to put a small amount of the liquid laxative in all 5 dishes of food and throw them down (not literally, although we feel like this sometimes) and let them get on with it.
Now we are just hoping that the laxative doesn't work toooooooo well and we end up with 5 cats with diarrhea. lol
I can hear some of you saying 'why do you not feed them earlier'?
The reason for this is that if they are fed too early, when it is time for bed they start cavorting and causing problems. Feeding them late means they all settle down for the night and we can sleep easy.
I KNOW WE ARE MAD.
