Not much besides the fact that the line rhymes. I woke up to a cold and overcast morning, got ready and had to convince Gemma to go inside so I could lock my room and go to work.
It won’t be for much longer, though. Victor and I are working on a plan where the door will be secured partly open and my valuables locked away in a cupboard. I highly doubt someone will try steal my hi-fi or computer. Not with all the cables tapedtogether in one jumbled mess …
So after I got home, I went straight out again for a walk to the pet shop down the road. There were several things I wanted to check out for Gemma, including getting some Frontline. I had found a flea on her recently. The shop is like an oversized pet shop and you normally don’t find frontline at a pet shop. Not that I am aware, anyway. But they had it, which impressed me.
With a vet that is kind enough to visit Cilia’s and my cats at home, and a pet shop that literally has everything that I would need, Quad House is turning more and more into a great place to have moved to.
I also asked the lady there what she fed her cats to supplement their diet. Anyone who reads the ingredients list will know that commercial dry pellets is not enough to feed a pet – dog or cat. Plus, the high temperatures that they are baked at kills most vitamins and minerals. She suggested tuna or salmon. I had been planning on tuna all along, so that fit right into my plan. She also suggested chicken feathers, but that did not appeal to me too much.
Gemma proved to be extremely hyper when I got back, racing round the yard and climbing things. Once, she half planned to jump into my lap and changed her mind at the last minute, scratching three lovely stripes across my foot!
Once she settled, I put the Frontline on, much to her disgust. But, now she is sleeping in my arms and I finish writing this with one hand …
Not sure what frontline is, but I’m assuming that it’s a brand of cat food?
Sher’s vet suggested that that we give him a mixture of dry and wet food. Dry is good for the teeth, and wet is possibly better on the long term.
We’ve been doing as suggested. It seems to work for him.
Frontline is for fleas. Gemma is currently eating Iams and I’m seeing if she likes Pro Pac, which so far she does not. Sorry that this was not clearer in my blog…
Hey Trudie, thanks for the comments, now I will be a regular visitor, thats if I don’t get lost on the way!
I do agree with the wet and dry food for Gemma, Storm my adopted farm/ferral cat has a mixture of both and dry pellets on the side and she often leaves the mix for the dry and vice versa. She is quite fussy so I change her food every 2 months and strange thing though she doesn’t like any of the expensive brands, much rather prefers the “Economical” foods.
As for me, I’m enjoying the rain, but I do really want to ride tonight so I’ll have to put on the dry mac and take the proverbial bull by the horns or is that, horse by the reins!
have a super day, hope to meet you soon!
Considering it takes you a full 360 when you should do a 180 to get into the house, I will just wonder and wait. But I know where your blog is. It’s just a matter of not getting confused by colours for me 😀
Gemma is loving the Iams, but not the Pro-Pac. I have another sample packet that I must try, but have my doubts whether she will like that either.
I am loving the rain too, don’t worry. Just Gemma isn’t. She is still hyper and wants to explore!
I am really looking forward to meeting you too!!
Trudie, I have always been a bit directionally challenged but don’t tell Rob that!
