Tabs did not go home last night. She was sleeping on Jia-Wen’s bed!
My husband said she actually came to our bed to sleep with us, but later must have gone over to Jia-Wen’s bed.
She came down late for breakfast, though. Maybe she isn’t used to having breakfast at 5am.
But smart little girl, she went for the stir-fried chicken with Udo’s Oil. That’s Bobby’s food. Ever since Dr Susanna’s advice yesterday, I’m going to take little steps to introduce more home-cooked food for my brood. So I’m starting with hiding small pieces of cooked chicken in the Fussie Cat.
Amongst my brood, only Bunny and Cleo are on raw food. The rest weren’t willing to eat it though I tried converting them to it a few years ago, but maybe I wasn’t persistent (or tough!) enough. Also, for mine, if they don’t get what they want in my kitchen, they know they can always share the cats’ kibble food at the neighbour’s. Dr Susanna said if the system is weak, the animal will not eat raw food, then cooked food would be the next option. There’s also the problem of habit, of course. Right now, they like Fussie Cat, but the jelly in it isn’t healthy at all. I’ve tried other brands like Go! and Natural Balance, but they didn’t like it and simply refused to eat it.
Maybe when we move and they are confined, they would have no other choice (save for doing Gandhi hunger strikes) but to eat what they are served with. Still, it should be done in baby steps. I don’t want anyone falling sick because of the stress of not getting the food they like!
Even Bobby goes on hunger strikes when he doesn’t get what he likes. And he would strike until he loses weight.
Why and how did I raise such strong-willed animals? Sigh…
Or is it a case of bullying? They bullying me!
Anyway, here’s Tabs eating Tiger’s food, after she almost finished all the Udo-chicken I had cut into tiny pieces to be “hidden” in the Fussie Cat for my cats.
May I have some, Tiger?
Thank you, Tiger.
She finished everything.
