tummy tuesday

Well, there is more foods drama at our house.  Mama was gradually switching us back to our old foods and Kit started yakking again as soon as she introduced efun a little bit of the old foods.  So now she is pretty sure that he is allergic to grain because he was doing so well on the grain free food and as soon as she starts switching us back he starts yakking again.

Kit's poor tummy!


So, mama is not sure what to do.  She put us right back on the grain free food to see if Kit will stop yakking.  He has to go to the v-e-t on Friday to get his blood work redone to see how he's doing on the thyroid medicine, and they will weigh him then.  If he's gained weight, she is going to keep us on the grain free.  If he's lost weight or hasn't gained, she doesn't know what she will do because it seems like the old food makes him yak, efun though he likes it better.  Maybe we will just haf to haf a cat who yaks, if it means he is eating and gaining weight like he needs to.  I feel sorry for Kit -- yakking is no fun.  I also feel sorry for me -- I want the old food back!  Mama reminded me that I haf to lose weight anyway.  Hmph.

Oh gosh, sometimes it is very hard to find just the right food that you both like and doesn't cause any bomiting!

It can be very hard to find a food that suits all and your mom might just have to feed you different foods separately. Nicki needs some grain in his diet, otherwise he gets yucky diarrhea. Gross. Derry can do grain-free -- too much fibre and he gets constipated. And when Annie was with us, she had different needs too.

Good luck getting it all sorted out!

As I always say, Yak happens.

But really I mean just furballs, cat grass or wolfed-up food. I hope Kit feels better!

Oh dear what a dilemma. We hope that you all find something you like!

Food is the most frustrating feline health issue out there. We do grain free but Toby does go through yakking periods.

The Island Cats said...

Oh we sure hope you can figure something out for poor Kit so he doesn't yak so much.

Willow said...

This must be so frustrating for all of you to have another food problem. There are some cats in the blogosphere who eat a raw food diet maybe this might be a way so Kit does not yak and gain weight? Purring for a solution soon.

Clooney said...

Oh folks, we hopes you can find a food that you both like and that Kit does well on. Purring for Kit to feel better, have good digestion and put on some weight.

Aw, poor Kit-Kat! I hope your Mommeh and the v-e-t can find the right combinations of foods that efurrykitty likes and that Kit does not bomit up--it's hard to gain weight when you're bomitting! The Humans do have the Big Brains though, so they'll probably figure it out soon.

Purrs to all.

I wish I had an answer for Kit's dilemma - I few really bad for him. Puking is so not fun!

I am sorry! I understand how you feel! Sandusky here has to have a special diet cause of uninary track blockages! I likes his food and won't eats any other. But he hates his food and wants what Jazzie and Spooky eats!

#1's first Aby, Ikkyu, yakked all his life and was the healthiest cat she had to date! So, the vet will have to tell you what's working.

BTW, have you tried Orijen? All of us really like it and it is grain-free.

Purrs,
The Chans
