"so I was effectively the cat's butler."

Aren't we all! Pick me up, put me down, let me out, let me in, play with me, feed me, no not that food the nice stuff, no leave me alone. All orders from our beloved masters. Hahaha

Me and Zena - may she rest in peace. I want another one! Angela - your cat reminds me of her.

When I get interested in something, I tend to go "all in." I didn't have my own cat until last October. A couple years before that I had a roomie with a cat and I enjoyed that cat a lot. Way before that, before my daughter went off to UNV, she had a cat, but it was her cat and it mainly paid attention to me by asking me to let her out or in. If I didn't do the door for her, she'd drive me crazy meowing to get out or scratching on the door to be let back in, so I was effectively the cat's butler.

Cats will also eat grass and other greens, but not for their nutritive value. Rather, they think, for the gross fiber, to help keep hairballs and other indigestibles moving through their system.

They may eat the contents of their prey's digestive tract, but not for any nutritive value. A cat can live its whole life eating nothing but meat protein and be perfectly healthy.

Okay, I just opened a can of Tiki Cat. There is no vegetable product filler in it at all. Cats are obligate carnivores. This flavor is shredded chicken. The squares are just egg. There is another flavor of all chicken no egg. Some of their flavors have fish (salmon, tuna, sardines) but I give Squeaky those only rarely.

Hey, I found this video about Tiki Cat. I'm a big fan of the stuff and this video will explain why.

Have you guys heard about Tiki Cat cat food? Squeaky loves the stuff and it's all recognizable as what's described on the label. For example, the chicken is just shredded chicken with no fillers (there are added vitamins and other trace nutrients, though). I'll photograph an open can for you soon so you can see the difference between it and most commercial cat food. The problem (of course) is that it costs 2 or 3 times more than the typical grocery store brands.

Not presently employed by any felines, but what the heck.

What Unseen chose to use as an illustration is known as a "feline-water" binary explosive.  Open the tap and all hell breaks loose.

Angela, that's a pretty kitty. Have you guys heard about seafood addiction in cats? While they love seafood, it's not part of their ancestors' diet. Read about it here.

Having a pet is like having a child in that you are always reading stuff that makes you feel guilty about what you are doing. However, since it's fairly simple to at least limit seafood in Squeaky's diet, she gets just one can out of 6 or 7 based on fish, so about once a week. I should look at her dry food's composition since she can graze on dry food all day long. I'm thinking of making her homemade food, which can be based on rather low-end and inexpensive meats, but there's a whole separate debate about that as well. This article is a good starting point.

Your kitty looks like a blue tipped Siamese? So cute! I once had a blue tipped Siamese. I got given him from a friend for free (which is strange because they are normally very expensive). It turned out that he had a genetic blood disorder and I woke up to find him alive but completely lifeless one morning. The vet couldn't save him, I was devastated. That's when I found out how good cats are at hiding their sickness. I just thought he was lazy because that's how he had been since we got him.
