Climbing the Walls
I'm happy to report that I'm in better health than I've maybe ever been. I rarely scratch and preen much anymore -- other than the usual 2 or 3 mini baths a day. I'm still a little heavier than I should be, but we've struck a nice balance between my dual issues of weight gain and allergic dermatitis. The weight management food makes my dermatitis act up, the no-grain food has more kCals in it so if I eat only that, my weight starts to go up again. I'm eating 50/50 right now and that seems to be working.
The excessive wax in my ears from mid last year has virtually disappeared, with Mom's weekly ear checks and cleaning. We think the no-grain diet is helping here, as well.
Right now I'm dozing on a pillow next to Mom, on the couch, while she translates my thought waves into text. It was another rainy day in paradise today, likely more of the same tomorrow.
Hope you're all healthy and happy. Purrs & meows from Beeg!
