Pumpkins Are Back

I had a kitty that is nuts. We finally decided on feline dysesthesia. I used to tell people he was possessed but they never believed me. He chased his tail, bit his feet, yelled for no reason and ghosts...

One of my vets helped me discover that a little laxative made him mellower. BEST on earth is canned pumpkin!

LAST YEAR, before the blight or whatever it was the cleared the pumpkins from the shelves for over 6 months, he seemed pretty happy.

My new vet figured out he also has hyper thyroid which is usually NOT connected, but as we started treating that, he mellowed... but his BUTT is still a little off. Anal glands (GAD when your children get old what a pain!!!). We refuse to call him scooter

BUT this week, I found PUMPKIN in the store!!!

Now the cat won't eat it..... TYPICAL!

Anyone else using pumpkin for kitty tummies?

Hmm, nope. I would suggest getting a syringe from the vet (or WAY cheaper at a drugstore) and soften it with water until its oozy, fill the syringe and force feed it.

I don't have a cat but I keep canned pure pumpkin around for my rabbits.

I heard about the pumpkin shortage but luckily my local grocery store somehow managed to keep pumpkin in stock all through the shortage. Maybe you should stock up now that your store has it again, in case they run out or something so you'll always have it if you need it. I haven't needed it for awhile now but I think I have like 5 cans of it stored just in case.

they cause runny poo if you feed too much, and canned pumpkin more so.
