Time for a Change


Well, as it turns out, Noodle needed to change up the routine a bit. At the end of the last blog, we mentioned that she was pooping again - the fourth time today. And this time, it was runny poop! Oh no!

Dave stayed with her while I ran the sink water and grabbed towels. She got her butt and paw washed and for the most part, she did well. She meowed a bit but then calmed down. It does help to have two people bathing her, at least. I don't know what will happen if it's only one of us.

We toweled her off then cuddled with her a bit to let her know she didn't do anything wrong. She retired to her spot in the closet and the two of them settled down.

We just brought them out to spend some time with us and although they did stay for a few minutes, they are making their way to the bathroom. Noodle ate some of her food, which is now a mixture of mainly feline caviar and a bit of Evo, so it's not too much of a change. Bag sniffed it and chose to drink water instead. That's the hard part with having two cats and one having a specific dietary need. I'm sure other cat lovers understand.

She is now back in the closet and Bag is roaming around. Let's hope her stomach has settled down. Mine, on the other hand, has been upset since all of this started. Call it sympathy sensitive stomach...

Earlier we started a spreadsheet of her poop. Hopefully it'll show us a trend. So far, it appears that too much Evo is hard on her, but that's all speculation. This is unfortunate because it's a high quality food and it's also alot more accessible than the caviar. We'll see ... we will stick with what works for her.

I believe Noodle felt we were bored and needed some excitement in our life...and so here comes the runny poopie to liven up the day.
Poor little girl...that's ok...we will take good care of her...
We spent some time after rearranging rugs and towels to try to prepare for that day when we both are at work and "poopie day" happens. I think we have prepared as good as we can. Luckily she generally follows the same path quite a bit...so we shall see...
