We live around a decent agriculture area. When Tom came back from his hospital stay, and it was time to make him another batch of food, there was no turkey in any grocery store. His father didn’t want me to substitute chicken, which was great, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO CHICKEN EITHER. There was also no […]

B.F.F. PLAY (Paté Lovers, Aw Yeah!)

Share Button

I’ll admit, I never had much reason to recommend B.F.F., other than it being another cool line from Weruva. It’s been fish-based, and my bourgy girls don’t eat fish, they only eat shellfish. Otherwise we stick to the land creatures. I was researching foods to send Tommy with during his 4 1/2 day hospital stay, […]

It’s nearly July? What’s going on with you, besides washing your hands and not touching your face? Did you buy any of your masks from TheCatBall? April flowers sure didn’t bring May flowers this year. Princess Yue Pajama Pants finally got her first physical and labs at the vet. She’s 11. Stewart had an ear […]

What were we doing? Not getting Dentals. Yes. I am as disappointed as you that I didn’t have any new dirt to post here, but there was a good reason. Hyperthyroidism likes to play with your liver, heart, and even the kidneys. Tommy had a grade 4 heart murmur and was ineligible for general anesthesia. […]

Hyperthyroidism in cats – Tommy

He is a hot mess. He has a heart issue, elevated liver enzymes, and his T4 is a 15. We started the methimazole on Friday, sat down with his vet today, and he’ll be back at the vet next week to draw blood, check his levels, and adjust his methimazole. Am I even spelling that […]

Basepaws Catkit DNA testing update #10

Share Button

Woo! All three cats have now received their health reports with 100 clear. What does this mean? (nothing) No…wait…they are not at an increased risk for diseases and conditions based on the DNA mutations they tested for, but nothing says they will stay well. Activity, diet, exposures, and even pure chance can still get these […]

Tommy goes back to the Vet

Share Button

Things are truly out of our hands with our cat. I can’t put any weight on him. He keeps having issues with intermittent constipation, which bring vomiting and a bit of diarrhea. He screwed up in November and went to the ER for an enema. I screwed up in November by realizing that he can’t […]

Holiday Bonus splurge

I’m pretty new to my store, and I didn’t realize that this would be happening, BUT IT’S SO COOL! We have a wicked good stock of products, so it took me about fifteen minutes to decide. (I’ve been there since November, so did you really think I didn’t window shop at every Shift?) YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTI! Felted. […]

Basepaws Cat DNA Health Report semi-update

Share Button

I got health reports back for Tommy, Stewart, and Princess Yue. Quite a few markers on her sample came back as inconclusive, so I emailed the Basepaws team and they said they would re-run her sample to see if we can get clear results or else we’ll do a new sample. I’ve been at work […]
