Share Button

We received our first two Catkits in 2017 as a part of running updates and sharing what you can expect. Our first Health Reports were assigned to Tommy Gargoyle. Princess Yue Pants has not received hers. Stewart was tested as well after he was accepted to participate in their research for his asthma, and has […]

Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein canned varieties

Share Button

I love the cleanprotein concept. Cats are Obligate Carnivores, so instead of going by the simple AAFCO mandates about protein levels in cat food being met, Dr. Elsey’s uses the more digestible animal proteins to attain their protein percentage. I have seen foods use soy and other vegetation to state its a high protein food, […]

Some teeth are better than others

Share Button

I was discussing oral condition with friends last night, and one interjected that his cat is fed a great diet. I said “no, your cat benefits from being genetically superior”. I was able to satisfy his ego without getting into a big discussion. I don’t have time to argue, and you can feel that you […]

We’re going to develop a habit

Share Button

It’s all on me. I know I haven’t been doing much this summer on this site, but social media accounts have been semi-active. Everything has been so much to process, and continued to amaze me about how many curves life can throw at you. A month after Murphy was put down for her heart condition, […]

I knew things would change

Share Button

I didn’t realize how much. In March, Chewy.com said they were discontinuing the Influencer program. It was a positive force for me to stay connected and keeping up with content, but then things got all weird. In May I broke my car. Since February 2006, I have always owned a silver Jetta. Twice, even. I […]

What went wrong with my guinea pig, Murphy

Share Button

I haven’t had the focus to write anything, and while I have had downtime on this blog, I have been keeping up on our Facebook Page. If you’d like to head there, I have the accounts listed to the right side of Stop and Eat the Flowers. Smurph had a final diagnosis of pericardial effusion. […]

Retired guinea pig wrangler

Share Button

After 12 1/2 years, the Pig Pen has been broken down, and the quality items left over from the guinea pig herd are to be donated to the rescue. On Tuesday, Murphy was euthanized. I am uneasy. I do not regret. I can’t process. This is a major adjustment to my daily life. The sounds […]

Bird Emergency

Share Button

I did, after all, destroy my car. Yet somehow this was not the worst of things to come in May. May 18th, while my partner was out running his children and their friends around (as it was Saturday) I was home alone with the animals. I noticed that Jak had a feather out of place […]
