First, an apology. A fourteen hour power outage prevented me from posting this in a more timely fashion. In Ojai, especially after a good rain, trees fall and that’s what happened in our neighborhood yesterday afternoon. We got power back about an hour ago.

Second, an announcement. Michele at Miki’s Hope has posted a review of Secrets, Trickery, and Meows. If you haven’t already seen it on Amazon or Good Reads, check it out here at Michele’s site: Yup, I got the hoped for reaction from Michele—she can’t wait to read the rest of the story in Book 28, The ImPAWssible Mission. http://www.mikishope.com/2018/04/book-review-secrets-trickery-and-meows.html

Now for the Topic of the Day

What are some of the feeding mistakes we make with our cats? Here are a few:

  • We feed too much.
  • We feed only dry food. (Gosh that was convenient, though.)
  • Some people make their cat’s food without knowledge of cat nutrition.
  • We sometimes don’t provide enough water for our cats.

Here’s a site designed to educate people on the best way to feed a cat. https://pets.webmd.com/cats/guide/mistakes-people-make-feeding-cats#1

Here’s another site explaining why dry food, even prescription dry food, can be bad for your cat.
