Riddle me this.
Clearance kitty with bonus toes, one eye and a lopped off ear has had absolutely no problems adjusting to life in our house. Aside from inching closer and closer to Cody’s face in the middle of the night as he sleeps, clearance kitty has been a rescue kitty dream come true, well, he’s kind of whiny and likes food more than he likes air and sunshine combined…but other than that? Super cool cat.
Full price kitty with no apparent problems at the time of adoption ends up being allergic to…get this…food.
Cody’s exact text reply to this discovery was “Well, nice knowing you Percy.”
He’s started on a hypoallergenic elimination diet after two rounds of antibiotics and steroid shots for feline eosinophilic granuloma complex.
Translation: Kitty now eats a gluten free, near raw food diet at $40 a bag after two enormous wounds, two $40 antibiotic shots, two $50 steroid shots and two $70 vet visits.
Seriously, his food is made from duck, turkey, fish, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, and cranberries.
He’s one pumpkin pie short of Thanksgiving dinner twice a day, everyday.
Since we’re not entirely sure what it is he’s allergic to (most likely the grain) clearance kitty has to eat the same food as full price kitty so full price kitty doesn’t get some of clearance kitty’s grain infused food.
As of right now the cats and the baby eat better than the rest of us, but that’s mostly because the rest of us like Oreos so much.
Want to know what I love besides my ridiculous cats with their ridiculous quirks and Oreos?
I mean, seriously. You could dip yourself in syrup and roll around in sugar and still not beat the sweetness.
(Besides, my cat would probably be allergic to you anyway.)
