Bartering for Belly Rubs?

 JB: Armani, did you really exchange head butts and kisses, for belly rubs and scritches at the vet yesterday?
Armani: Yes m'am, I did!  If I had to be there all day, I had to get something out of it!

 My brother Armani was schmoozing with everyone at the vet office yesterday again.   
Sheesh, maybe he really is sick and has lost his mind!   
When mom went to pick him up, everyone kept saying: "He is such a great cat!".  
Sheesh.  I'm great too.

So Armani's blood glucose curve results were down from his initial diagnosis of 470.  He was at 266, 287, 273, and 266 on his test curve.  This is pretty good news.  Now mom still start giving him a little more insulin per vet instructions, and we will see how it goes for another week.  Mom will be changing all of our diets slowly going forward, and will definitely be weaning us off dry food, which is very bad for cats.

We will keep updating Armani's progress.  The vet said he was doing really well so far!

Hurrah for Armani!

The whole cat food debate is very confusing. So many people swear by dry and only dry, but that seems so boring, designed strictly for the owners' convenience. Here at Poupounette Central, we get mostly wet food, with some very high-end dry, plus Tama-Chan and The Beebs do love raw meat so they get occasional hamburger or steak, only beef or veal, never chicken or pork, as per vet's instructions.

Paws up for Armani! Great news. Although I have NO idea how he can manage to keep his cool at the vet's. I could never do that!

You can not blame him for schmoozing since he and to be there all day. We know you are a great cat, too, but would you want to spend all day at the vet just to prove it?
