Please excuse the poor shot of Purrl in her favorite sleeping position. Stories of Alma have filled the blog all winter while another major event with a cat was happening. Purrl has become allergic to commercial cat food. She has had itchy ears since the fall. I treated both cats for fleas though I had not seen any sign of them. Also her hair had patches of brown and was falling out.
Though very common in dogs, the vet said food allergy is uncommon in cats. For three months I must feed her a novel protein such as kangaroo, bison, goose, lamb etc, food's that are not commonly found in a pet foods. I have chosen duck and she has been on it for over a month. She also had a round of steroids.
She is doing great with no more itchy ears or falling hair. The travails of feeding one cat a different food has been interesting and a story for another day.
When Alma is gone I will feed both my cats the duck food but it is too expensive to feed to three cats.
I took my son to the airport this morning for the last time this winter. He is off to France, Holland, and Brussels for 11 days then home!
