Have found a food that the Tortie Monster can eat without getting the runs.
Like magic, suddenly everything is normal.
Or relatively normal.
She still Does Not Use the Box, but we can cope with that, especially since it is now much less extremely FAIL.
Second discovery is online cat food place, since this particular brand isn’t sold locally.
Or at least not at the two closest places.
And the online place, if I keep the total weight under the maximum for the lower fixed shipping fee (so 55 pounds for $9.99), and place it as a standing order (10% off), doesn’t come out all that expensive.
Does mean I have to store vast amounts of cat food.
And think ahead.
But we’re all a whole lot less grumpy about things without utter Cat Care Horror happening four and five times a day.
