We bought a bunch of probiotics and vitamins for our eldest cat, Pookum. She’s having some health issues and they’re making her do weird things. We’re not really sure what’s going on, but in the meantime, we’re trying to help her by giving her probiotics and vitamins, as well as some ear ointment. It’s a long story.
The thing is, getting her to actually consume the stuff is impossible. She won’t eat wet food, so we can’t mix it up in that. And she won’t just eat it—no way. So, we’re basically left with having to sprinkle it over the dry food, which means ALL three cats get a dose. But I was told by our vet that this was fine, healthy even.
Anyway, I figured that since Murray is obviously after something given all the strange, inedible crap he consumes, the vitamins might curb whatever it is he’s craving. And while we’re at it, I might as well throw in some good ol’ probiotics for his ever-expanding belly. But really it came down to ease. Because this cat? This cat turns into a ravenous freak at the mere sight of the bottles. He’s insane for it, desperation equivalent to a crackhead in withdrawal. Murray eats every last bit of it straight up, no chaser.
Check out the yellow remnants on his chin.
I’m hoping this won’t hurt him, right? Certainly it can’t be worse than the plethora of rubber products he’s tried to kill himself on, right? (Please don’t turn me into animal protective services.)
