  • Projek Makan for Indra

    I think I’ve more or less succeeded in getting Samantha, Akira and Kai to eat proper meals. The one left now is Indra. I weighed her yesterday and her weight is fine, it’s about 4.6kg. But it’s been so difficult to get her to eat proper meals. She only wants snacks. It makes little sense…

  • Projek Makan and the Blondies (plus Riley)

    Projek Makan is not about to achieve great success….not yet. Managed to get Kai and Akira to eat this morning. Akira is more or less quite okay now, I can get her to eat. Kai is “intermittent” and I need to try various foods before hitting the right one. Indra is very, very difficult. No,…

  • AIM snacks for Tabs and Ginger

    I’ve given the AIM kibble and AIM supplements, both of which Tabs and Ginger liked. This evening, I tried the AIM snacks from Ciao. Tabs didn’t like it neat, but when mixed with her canned food, she ate it up. This is the AIM snack from Ciao, Inaba. Ginger had no problem eating the snack…

  • AIM supplements for Ginger and Tabs

    This morning, I tried the AIM supplements on Ginger and Tabs. Both loved it! I guess it must be very tasty. It is a powder packed in sachets. About AIM: https://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/focus/en/features/z1304_00039.html Tabs is one of our hardest cats to feed now. I noticed her appetite isn’t so good these few weeks. Tabs has PKD and…

  • AIM food from Japan!!

    Direct from Japan! Many thanks to my friends, Andy & Emily, who were travelling in Japan. They helped me purchase these: These are supplements. These are snacks. These are two brands of kibble. This is Tabs eating it. And Ginger. And Ginger sapu habis.  We have two CKD cats now, Tabs and Ginger, both at…

  • “Projek Makan” for the Blondies

    It’s not that they have nothing to eat, it’s just that they are so, so choosy! This morning, Kai ate Cindy’s Complete Pate. The rest didn’t want it at all, not even Samantha, who is probably the least fussy of them all. Akira ate Cubgrub but only at this specific spot. No other spot is…

  • The super fussy Blondies

    I decided to try a new food for the Blondies today since they are so incredibly fussy. This is Cindy’s Complete Pate. It isn’t a new food, though. I’ve tried it before last time on our cats, but our cats didn’t much like it then. This was before the Monsters or the Blondies’ time. The…

  • The Monsters’ fantastic appetite!

    This is the Monsters’ breakfast. The canned chicken is for Ginger because sometimes, in the morning, he just prefers cooked food. Maybe it’s too early to eat raw food? I really don’t know but I’ve noticed this preference in him. But by evening, Ginger will be okay with raw food. There is also probiotics and…

  • My new targets

    With Cow Mau and Indy gone now, I have to get back to certain issues which I had shelved because I had to give priority to looking after Cow Mau and Indy in their respective final weeks. One is getting the Blondies to eat more raw food failing which, then wet food instead of depending…

  • Tabs and Riley

    So little is written about Tabs and Riley because these two girls seldom have any drama to write about! When Indy refused to eat the Primal Freeze-Dried, I gave it to Tabs. This used to be her favourite food until she was diagnosed with PKD/CKD and since then, had to be on a kidney diet…

  • A failed breakfast with the Blondies this morning

    A complete failure this morning! I only got Akira to eat. Indra was up on the highest platform and showing me her butt. Samantha wasn’t interested in eating either, which is rare. But I finally got her to eat. So okay, it’s 2 out of 4. Kai was too busy getting ready for battle with…

  • The Monsters’ breakfast

    I haven’t written enough about the Monsters. Maybe it’s because they don’t give much trouble, especially when it comes to eating! But yes, they do fight. Only that it’s not the type that ends with me having to take them to the vet’s. It’s just the very noisy type. Thank goodness for that! It’s been…

  • Naughty Blondies

    Today was not a good feeding morning for the Blondies. I only managed to get Kai to eat. That’s Kai. Managed to coax Samantha to eat much later. Akira and Indra said, “No, thanks. Who needs to eat?” After more coaxing and more time, Indra obliged. Still a “no” from Akira. But later… Everyone gobbled…

  • The challenge of feeding the Blondies

    Are female cats always so hard to feed? From my experience, the answer is YES. Cleo had always been so difficult to feed and for many years, I did wonder how she continued to survive and thrive (!) by eating so, so little. Riley is also very difficult to feed, especially proper food, though she…

  • Cow Mau eats chicken meat!!

    Another milestone!! I remember how I finally managed to feed Vincent five years ago when he was literally dying from CKD. His mouth ulcers were so bad he couldn’t eat anything….until one day, I figured it out (or did Vincent tell me telepathically?) – cut-up raw chicken meat (I used chicken fillet because it was…
