I have started a VLOG of my feelings on this treatment. It is the only pill I take now. I also will be mentioning my 15 year precious feline Minnie that had a seizure on the 7 th of February.I am caring for her as a newborn since she has lost all mobility in regards to walking and doing for herself.
I have been on a mission to find a healthy choice for my oldest cat Minnie. She was a petite cat at 11 months when I adopted her. Very few health incidents other than a fairly bad Upper respiratory infection a few years ago. She has lost all her large canine teeth.
Minnie will be 13 in February. She’s my heart.

Before China she was getting Fat (2011)
Minnie at 12 years of age
China, my youngest having found at my door step 4 years ago is a very robust, beautiful coat and literally will eat anything she finds. She especially likes dust bunnies
China at 4 years of age
The problems with Minnie started around the same time as China’s arrival. Stress related IBS.
Can you imagine having the runnies every day for all these years?
I have been keeping a journal on my mission.
She seems much improved.
No wet food for three days and I notice with just the Science diet for sensitive stomachs she has less runnies and not as many crying scenes nor vomiting.
Than I read that it is one of the worse foods for a cat.
So my research is back in full swing.
Anything that will help my Minnie.
I tend to favor products that are made in our country (USA)

The BEST Canned Foods for your Cat
Top brands that I use include
Tiki Cat – the kinds with NO FISH
Hound and Gatos
Soulistic, some grain free Wellness and some Merrick Pate Perfect Bistro.
Please note that not all of these are carrageenan free, and most have BPA in the can linings.
This is my go too when funds do not allow the quality foods I have starred here
Nature’s Logic – All canned formulas
From “Four Star” Grain-Free
Newman’s Own Organics Grain-Free Canned Cat Food – All “grain-free” varieties
Note: The “Newman’s Own Organics” non grain-free formulas DO have both carrageenan and guar gum

It’s easy to see why someone as obsessed with cats, music, art, dancing and drumming feels drawn to Bast.
“Are cats lazy? Well, more power to them if they are. Which one of us has not entertained the dream of doing just as he likes, when and how he likes, and as much as he likes?”
“It is easy to see why Bast the Cat Goddess has been associated with pleasure, music and dancing for millennium. Just think of your own sensual, comfort-seeking cat who loves to be stroked and petted, gets tipsy on catnip and can often be found curled up in the coolest places in the house! Cats also love to play, their graceful movements resembling lighthearted dancing with their purring as musical accompaniment. Bast offers to teach us to refuse to take things too seriously, to luxuriate in our grace and sensuality, and to never waste our energy.”
Thoughts on a Special Day
Today (Heart Day) Minnie will be 11 years old. I adopted her in January 2004 , two months after Master Purrby (1994 – 2003) went to Rainbow bridge.
The Cat that listens
When I say”Come, Minnie” she appears in moments
If I say “Are you hungry” she says “meow”
I say “Let’s Go” she “meows” and meets me in the kitchen.
She sprawls her fluffy self over the center of my chest and lays still
Our hearts beat together and feelings of contentment wash over me
She hums her perfect purr.
