Yella’s Diet- 3 Weeks In

Time for a dieting update! As you recall, Yella has been told by TWO different vets that he needs to lose weight. And while we had good intentions, his persistence and my depression meant no weight loss for Yella. But now that things are looking better for me, I decided it was time to tackle … Continue reading

I’m Getting Better. The Cats are Getting Worse.

I told you last April about Little Girl’s fearful behavior and Graybie’s aggressive behavior toward her.  Since taking her to the vet, I’ve tried Feliway diffusers and calming collars. I’ve bought interactive toys and engaged in play with the cats. I’ve given Little Girl time alone and fed her away from the others. Things got … Continue reading

How’s Yella Doing?

I had no idea how difficult it would be to cut Yella to one meal per day as our vet recommended. I should have known better. After all, if it was going to be easy, I would have done it already. Yella is not happy and is pulling out all the stops to convince me … Continue reading

Yella’s Vet Visit

This past weekend I felt a lump on the back of Yella’s neck. Today we went to see the vet. His ears were dirty and so he got them cleaned out and treated for yeast. He was not happy about that. He also got told he needed to lose a few pounds (where have we … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday- The Gang’s All Here!

How’s Little Girl Doing?

Little Girl continues to act fearful. So I’ve put calming collars on her, Hissy and Graybie. I didn’t put one on Yella because he’s already the most mellow cat in the world. I still have the diffusers going. And I am offering Little Girl time alone in the bedroom. As far as Hissy goes, I … Continue reading

Dear Little Girl, What Can the Matter Be?

Little Girl has decided she no longer wants to go downstairs to eat. For the life of me I don’t know why. Instead she stands at the top of the stairs and meows pitifully. She won’t come downstairs no matter how much I beg, and she won’t let me pick her up and take her … Continue reading
