Today's bizarre bookish doodle is of course our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop. Be sure to visit Athena to see the masterpieces our friends have created!


Happy Caturday to all!

Our Tip of the Day:

Since we've been giving a variety of food tips, today we figured we'd give a quick reminder on how to transition your cat to a new food, if needed. If a kitty is transitioned to a new food too quickly, a variety of gastrointestinal issues could possibly result, vomiting and diarrhea included. For this reason, it's generally recommended that you transition from the old food to the new food over a span of seven days or so.

To transition your cat to a new food, you can start by adding a small amount of the new food to the old food on the first day. Then, of course, you add more and more of the new food each day. On the final day of the transition, your kitty's food bowl will contain only the new food. Of course, when changing foods, keep in mind your particular kitty's overall status. If your cat is a finicky eater, whether by nature or due to age or an ailment, you may have to do a slower transition over a longer period of time, in order for them to accept the new food. In other cases, such as if your kitty is having adverse reactions to their current food, a more rapid or immediate transition might be necessary. This is of course something to discuss with your veterinarian. During any transition, of course keep an eye out for any adverse reactions. Alert your veterinarian of any concerns you have, and stop or slow the food transition as needed or as instructed if issues arise.

That is a cute doodle. Wouldn't it be fun if the pages did come to life. Well maybe only in some books!

Today's doodle is so creative! It's not weird.
TW never transitions me to new food since I'm used to a varied diet.

Books and cats just are a natural duo!
We have made the mistake of changing foods too quickly; well, the cats ate it, so what's the problem? Ha...the problem manifested in the litterbox, and poor kitties had poopy issues until the new food settled down in their systems. Ooops!
