Cats Are Like Rainbows

 



We at It's a Wonderpurr Life are joining Brian's Home Thankful Thursday Blog Hop by being very Thankful that our lovely supurr senior, ChauncieMarie, is doing well at the age of seventeen, despite having kidney disease.

Last Octopurr she was diagnosed, but the vet I took her to wasn't the right fit for us. So I chose another vet a little farther outside our neighborhood and hit the jackpot. ChauncieMarie got another exam and an update on her bloodwork. A little low on potassium, but still at low risk.


She's having potassium powder added to her prescription food, and I am also adding a drop of Kidney Vitalizer in salmon flavor made by Scruffy Paws.

It's amazing how the Good Lord works. Scruffy Paws approached Rabbit on his Instagram with an Affiliate offer. Well, Rab is four years old and in excellent health -- except for behaving like an assrabbit for which there are no pills or drops to cure that disease -- so I chose the kidney drops for ChauncieMarie.

To be honest, she can be a picky little pussycat. So hiding the drops isn't always successful. I swear she was a bloodhound in a past life. She can detect anything out of the ordinary in her noms, and putting anything directly into her mouth is Mission: IMPAWSIBLE. She was born feral, and at seventeen I don't want to stress her. So I smear a bit of Fancy Feast pate over her prescription food to get her to eat and hopefully eat it all.


One drop mixed into ChauncieMarie's food will hopefully keep her perky and incredibly spry despite her advanced years. 

As the drops are Salmon flavored, they easily mix with what she is accustomed to eating. Scruffy Paws suggests the drops could be squirted into her mouth, but CM isn't a squirt-in-the-mouth kind of girl, so we are sticking with slipping the drops into her noms.

We have just started the drops, so as of yet there is no tell-tale difference. But hopefully with the drops combined with the potassium powder added to her meals, ChauncieMarie will be enjoying a Wonderpurr Life for quite some time to come.
 
We met the Scruffy Paws people at our last Blogpaws conference where they gave us a bottle of their dental powder to try. We are still using the powder, easily mixed into food. I have tasted the powder and it doesn't have a flavor, so it goes down their picky little gullets without drama.

The Wonderpurr Gang is sliding into their Golden Years as a group, so I'm braced for health problems to start raising their ugly heads. I'm thankful for products like the Kidney Vitalizer Drops and the dental powder to help me give them all the best care possible.

Oh, you beautiful Chauncie Marie!!! Amazing that you are so old and so YOUNG looking. What a beauty. And yes, mama has to hide my Cosequin for arthritis in my food and I KNOW it's there but I like to humor her. Plus, frankly, it's helping, haha. Glad to meet you, Chauncie. Hang in there!

Glad ChauncieMarie is doing well. I am using Aminavast kidney support on 2 of my CKD kitties. One just had blood work and I am eager to get the results to see if it is helping. XO
