We recently started our cat on a raw diet due to his violent grain allergies, although he seems to be extraordinarily well on it, I was wondering if there were any health issues that could stem from it that I should look out for?
It’s nice to hear your kitty is doing well. If you are feeding raw there are a few extra things I’d recommend watching out for.
Basic food handling hygiene is a must. Cats are not magically immune to food borne bacterial diseases. It is entirely possible for them to catch Campylobacter and Salmonella.
Any bones, even raw bones, have the potential to splinter or get stuck and should only be fed under supervision.
Cats on raw diets do have more bacteria in their stool and mouth, and consequently on their fur from grooming.
Remember to de-worm or have a faecal test at least every 3 months due to risk of tapeworm. Freezing the meat for an extended period can reduce this risk, but this should also apply to any cats that might be hunting.
Particular to cats is Toxoplasma infection. This parasite uses cats as a primary host and reproduces in their intestine. Sometimes cats will show no symptoms from this, but if a human catches Toxo from their cat they may have symptoms ranging from flu-like through to abortion. This parasite can also flare up again if its host is immunosuppressed for any reason, whether that’s the human or the cat. You can get a toxoplasma test done on your cat to determine whether it’s ever been infected, and whether it’s likely to be shedding if this concerns you. Sheep and Kangaroo meat is particularly high risk meat for Toxoplasma.
Raw feeding requires more care than processed foods, but if it’s benefiting your cat it’s probably worth doing.
Can you imagine tho. Even and Isak being old together and having been married for like 50 years. Isak is still being a grumpy nerd and Even being a really acclaimed director and them having kids and grandkids.
They spend like evenings going on walks or complaining about being old. And yet after all those years… they’re still so so in love. Even still surprises Isak with stuff like drawings and flowers and “to my love, Isak Valtersen” in the credits of his movies.
Isak in the meanwhile has like discovered amazing and world changing things as an astrophysicist or doctor or something and called them Even or EBN or something close. And then… they also have a cat. And he’s grumpy and old but they love him so so much and called him Baz.
The boy in me insisted
I wasnt going to date her, mom.
But then she kissed me
And well, I liked it
Is the cost you pay for the respect
Of a world that doesnt know where its heart is anymore
Those sleepy old towns never do get any louder, even if you’re drunk
The books still hold just as much wonder, though,
Even if youre drunk
The boy in me breathes deep of my broken exhaust and dreams of dragons and their fire
He insists blacksmithing is a viable career choice
The boy in me also notes
Toyotas do not classify, really, as noble steeds, but he appreciates my efforts
I think manhood comes as a surprise to most men
I also think cats love me
That is to say, some of my thoughts arent true.
Like the ones about my body
Or the nutritional value of ramen noodles
Or the validity of sandals as winter footwear
Anyways, when your best friend dies
The boy in you hesitates
He does not have words for this
He never does
He appreciates my efforts
Is something that little boys just don’t seem to want to comprehend
Whether it be because your friends mustang tried to fold itself into the shape of its namesake around him
Or because seven years a son does not a present father make
I am twenty three and the boy in me still pauses with my hand on the door hoping its all just a dream.
Headcanon; Lup dated half the alien creatures they met; girls, guys, nb, sentient gas clouds, you name it. Barry always had a crush on her but knew he wasn't her type. She asked him out due to boredom and came to really like spending time with him. She hides ghost peppers in his food, writes love messages in his underwear, and sleeps in his lap (not in a cute way, in an awkward sprawly way.) Also; actual cat Taako Taaco = actually dog Chaalupa Bluejeans
*Nods head sagely* I can get behind this, yes, this works for me.
Also fucking fuck you’re right if she married Barry and took his name her name is Chaalupa Bluejeans.
If she hyphenated her name is Chaalupa Taaco-Bluejeans I’m in hell.
Question. Aside from Naruto and Bleach(I think it was Bleach) what other anime fandoms are you part of/what other anime do you like??? ;o; Also thank you for writing that fic for me ^^ it really made me feel better :D
I love Katekyou Hitman Reborn, and I’m still pretty fond of D. Gray-Man. Jjinjuu Houretsuden is another all-time favorite, and I enjoy Loveless when I’m in the right mood. Silver Diamond is amazing, and anything by Kaori Yuki tends to tear my heart out in the best way. Also Black Cat, xxxHolic, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, and Yami no Matsuei.
We’re at the Kyoto manga museum. Decided to go back to my childhood and read some Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne to pass the time.
Also, I bought a cat plush of my own. Her name is Momo and I relate to her constantly tired expression ✌️
Should I erase my phone before I take it to the repair shop in the morning? Also Cat and I were having a fascinating convo about screen repair. How much does it cost where you are? I’ve been reading horror stories about screens being glitchy and terrible after repairs. Cool. Might just move to a nice cave instead.
