Greedy Cat Fluff
Au ate his entire chicken leg and thigh within 24 hours. And of course he immediately demanded I go back to the market and get him some more.
We've debated Au's diet at length and have decided the best option for him is to eat commercial cat biscuits and either roast chicken or the equivalent home made food.
We've stopped buying wet cat food for him because he only ever liked two types. One type hasn't been around for the last 3 months and there seems to be no replacement. The other type is available but the manufacturer has changed the mix. Unfortunately this was done without Au's approval. And our cat wants "old and inferior" rather than "new and improved."
So I'm cooking for him every two days or so. Au is very fit, very active and he sparkles in the sun. At his last check up the vet pronounced him 100%. So I guess we're doing the right thing for him.
Interestingly it costs about the same to cook for him as it does to buy wet food. And there's no waste! The only thing is that it is a hassle sometimes. When stocks are low it's inevitably the day I want to stay in bed till 8AM. But the temptation is easy to overcome - when you have a senior cat shouting MEOW in your ear!
For more about Au and Target please remember that Katz Tales is out tomorrow in the print version of the Malaysian national daily, The Star, Weekend section.
The kitty in this week's adoption box is Megeara, pictured here, also known as Spider Cat. She is about 3 years old, a superb climber and expresses her love with lots of head butts and ankle weaving. She has nursed 8 kittens, only one of which was her own! The kittens have all found good homes but somehow Mega hasn’t found her special someone. If you want to adopt this beautiful and affectionate girl contact Alicia at 012 331 3318. For more pictures check here.
