Pandora Update



Lots of people (and kitties) have been asking after my sister Pandora.

Pandora is doing pretty well. She's not having hardly any episodes of digestion upset, and mum is feeding her some raw food every day (as well as canned/pouched food from Wellness). Mum is glad that she is feeling better, even though she's not eating all raw food yet. She does have a patch of fur missing on her left back leg, but mum's keeping an eye on that for now. (She used to get patches all the time but the vet could never figure out why.)

Mum keeps a journal of all the food we kitties eat, and I heard her talking to a friend about counting our calories! I have no idea what that means but I am getting lots of delicious food anyway.

Counting calories means you kitties are on a d-i-e-t! That is a Bad Word.

Percy's mum here-
I count calories because I need to make sure that Pandora's getting enough to eat. And I also make sure that the others are getting enough too :) (it's almost 800 calories per day for all 3 kitties! that's a lot of stinky goodness :))

Pandora looks the picture of health and beauty lounging in her violet bed. We are so happy that her patches of lost hair are fewer and her digestion is coming along. Allergies in cats can be quite difficult to manage. Sounds like your mum is very
knowledgeable. She surely takes very good care of you.

That is great that Pandora is feeling better! I can't believe that they eat almost 800 calories between the three of them - I wouldn't have ever guessed cats eat that many calories! You are a great mom for keeping track of everything so closely - with tummy issues I would guess it has be be pretty well monitored to be sure that she is getting enough.

@Amy:
I've gathered from my research that, depending on weight/size, cats need a certain amount of calories to maintain their weight. With Pandora being so small (less than 4kg/7.5lbs approx), she doesn't really have any weight to spare. :) She and Zowie need about 220-250 calories per day, and Percy (being 18lbs) needs about 290-300 ish. I make sure to have about 750-800 calories fed per day. Some days they eat more than others, but I'd rather have too much than too little! :)
