Kibble

I always want my kitty around.

She makes me laugh and smile.

I always want my kitty around to cuddle.

Even when it results in the vile.

Yup, the Lucy-furr has started biting aggressively again on a regular basis. It may indeed be entirely my fault though. I started feeding her wet food semi-regularly and now she demands it every meal. Nope, kitty. Not going to do it. Continue reading Wet Cat Food: You’re Going to Have a Bad Time

Lucy is a fairly typical cat. She sleeps, she eats, she poops. In typical cat like fashion she one could associate her daily behaviors with that of an infant. Her eating patterns on the other hand, are strictly Grazer level.

Grazer: eating from a single source of food, such as a food bowl. A single serving which is eaten at a slow pace to last approximately 10-ish hours.

Feeding schedule:

7:45am – 1/4 Cup of kibble

5:45-6:15pm – 1/4 Cup of kibble

Generally what I find when I get home is that she hasn’t exactly eaten all her food from the morning serving. Today was my day off work so I fed her a little bit later, about 8:30am. I left the apartment about 4:45pm to see The MLS All Star team beat Bayern M√ľnchen 2-1. Totally awesome game!!!!!!!!!!

There was still kibble in her bowl, good for three or four mouth-fulls. Additional to the kitty fashion of eating, there was also a mouth-full or two of kibble strewn around the floor near her eating area. Upon returning this was all eaten. So I gave her dinner, wandered about the house for a few moments, she was crouched on the floor so I went and pet her, she flops over as usual…

 

aaaaand then she bit my toe.

Lucy cat loves to snuggle. And when she snuggles she purrs…and this ultimately leads to drooling. Drooling by itself is generally a dab or two of moisture on my person. Today, Lucy has scored herself a new place in which her drool has graced my presence. My face.

The nimble little butterfly jumped onto my lap as I was reading the internet as usual. And while this behavior is normal, what is not normal is for her to purr and make biscuits to indicate a lack of kibble in her bowl. The normal m/o for this is to sit on my lap and then mouth my arm or my hand, whichever is closest. Today she merely sat in the floor looking pathetic, and when she got tired of that she came up and started being sweet on me. Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s because I’ve been home all afternoon…but the little beast was pinning me with her claws so I did what all fur parents do and picked her up under her from arms and lifted her up. Kitty face directed downwards towards my own.

That’s when it happened.

Lucy drooled on my face. And I am glad I had my mouth closed. O.O

Kibble replenished; no more love from Lucy.

Lucy hasn’t been eating regularly since we gave her a flea bath a few weeks ago. At fist I thought it was because she was upset at us, for obvious reasons. In addition to the flea bath, I have been moving furniture, sweeping and vacuuming her favorite hang outs, and otherwise disturbing the peace. Jonathan even tried putting a few pieces of spam in her bowl with her kibble to get her to sniff around and eat something. Since I did the major flea cleanout, she hasn’t been eating at all. Last night she was pittifully looking down at her – full of kibble since Monday morning – bowl from the back of the couch. Turns out, her sniffer is offended by something where her food and water bowl usually hang out. We moved it across the room and she immediately did a nose dive into the kibble. We’re assuming it’s the flea killer spray, which has also been sprayed where her food and water are currently placed, which is also why she’s a dainty little picky snuggly brat.

This morning there was the tell tale ring of kibble in her bowl. Face planting into the middle of her food happened last night.
