Don't you need just one more cat?
Im so mean. Sorry.
Well I read over my blog the other day (when I went to make sure the pictures fit in the template) and noticed I have been ranting about raw lately. well we are still all on it - and except for a little pica going on (eating of non food items) things have been going pretty well. My last batch I added some green beans (frenched in a can) and the pica stopped. I added the beans cause I read somewhere they were good for diabetics.. who knows if they are or not.. I wanted to add greens, I had this piece of info, I had lots of cans of beans, so they got some. Besides, Jack loves them anyway.
The last batch I removed the b vitamins, and the egg whites, and it has gotten the same reception as every other batch... so I'll probably put those back in.
As I mentioned yesterday, I tried feeding whole pieces of hen. Didn't go over well. I think they ate the heart, and the short piece of ribs I put out. Jack chewed on the wing a few different times, but on the whole it didn't go over well at all. Oh well.
The bunny is doing VERY well. I got the last room in my house set up (FINALLY) and she's in there. I put a old rug down, and she stays on that for the most part. I can open up the cage and let her run around for hours with the door open and she just hangs out on the rug or in her cage. Currently there are no electrical cords in there, so the only damage she can do is peeing on the floor (Please no!) and chewing on stuff... and she seems to have no interest in either. She's been very good using her litter box. She didn't like the switch of litter over to feline pine (pellets) so I think once that is gone Im going to go back to some sort of shredded material. She is eating like a horse.. But she is a growing bun :) She gets along really well with tweedle and ollie. yes, mr grumpy pants ollie.. its cute.
I believe Ive been ranting about not being able to get Em's BG's under control as well. She is having a reduced need for insulin, but trying to figure out what that is, I have over dosed her a couple of times. Fortunately her body does a glucose dump from her liver keeping her from hypo-ing (aka no blood sugar in body thus death) but it is throwing everything out of wack. I was getting very frustrated as I was having a hard time getting her sugars down this last time, but I think they are on their way, and hopefully we can keep them there. Not sure what to do when she gets another low reading, as getting less then half a unit into her is going to be hard.
hum.. what else haven't I told you about.. Eli is over coming his paranoia, and is actually asking to be patted. It is so sweet, and its about time. Unfortunately he's given it to tweedle who you can no longer go to and pick up. She'll come to you just fine, but if you look at her and make a move toward her she runs like the wind.
Oh yes, and the 'kitty crack episode" of 3/35/06. :) I was frustrated with Em's sugars and the raw food was still quite frozen in the fridge, and the kids all wanted something to eat. So I threw down some dry Innova Evo. They have all really liked this food, but since figuring out it doesn't help Em's sugars, ive stopped doing it. I couldn't find Em so I figured I would throw some down so I could get her to come into the kitchen so I could test her sugars. Well Eli was downstairs, and moments after i threw the food on the floor he came racing up the stairs. DH asked in a joking way if that was her. Em the log kitty running anywhere is just unheard of. Well moments later who should actually race up the stairs at a pace I have not seen from her in over 12 years, but Em. :) She loves that dry food. She can't eat it - as she has the hardest time picking it up off the floor, and we have more of her spit on the floor than she has food in her tummy, but she loves it.
Ok, I think that is all the news as of now. Stay tuned cause you know tomorrow is going to bring its own new challenges.. like where on earth am I going to put the kitten cage now that the kittens have started to figure out how to walk (cause it is currently on top of the TV and they could break their little bodies if they fell out.)
