Life goes on

the Brat attempts to relieve his once-more inflamed bladder in the newly regenerated rosebush

Morgan, in answer to your question--yesterday I cooked up the first, experimental meal of ground turkey, rice, carrots, vitamins and olive oil. The Brat took one look at it and attempted to relieve himself next to the bowl. The Alpha Cat looked disbelieving, politely attempted a couple of bites, then politely requested that he be allowed access to his regular food.

They're not happy about the feathers, either. Recipe experimentation, vacuuming, and the purchase of a new supply of catnip are in order.

On the bright side, one heavy application of cayenne pepper to the rosebush produced the unmolested foliage you see here.

That's such a great photo. The look on that cat's face is priceless. Who needs to talk when your feline expression says it all.

"Do you mind? What??? You're taking a picture of me doing this?"

I'm not surprised about the diet, but you have to be strong and prepared to deprive dear Brat until he has no choice but to eat the Healthy Stuff. Hopefully the catnip will work, but if not you may have to get creative. Stuff it into a mouse or something.

And yes, the rosebush looks much better.

Update: the tuna went down much better with the rice and carrots.

Why is it not surprising that RLH knows a cheaper way?
