A furry basketball match

This is me at one of my favorite spots at Granny’s place.

Of course this silly human of mine started squeaking, and I admit that I loved the attention. So yes, I was very satisfied with myself in this wonderful basket: Mom and Granny admired me, and I could even sunbathe for some time in the morning.

However, this doesn’t mean that Mom can just copy this spot at our place. She got me a similar basket, and placed it on a “sunny” (we live in Finland…) shelf.

cats are very picky

Can you believe that she even tried to get me interested with a treat?? She’s hopeless – of course I won’t use this basket! It’s important to keep humans on their toes, because it’s dangerous when they become too confident.

The cat is not in the bag

I’m not a total greenhorn anymore, but what is it with cats and bags? I get that they like to be inside bags, but why on earth is laying on a bag better than let’s-suggest-something-weird a pillow?

It doesn’t really seem to matter where I put my bag: it’s occupied within minutes, even if it’s only standing on the floor.

Aptus Attapectin Review. (Pectin)

attapectin aptusOne of the many things I tried during our Diarrhea Drama was Aptus Attapectin. It consists of pectin and helps, according to the manufacturer, with minor gastrointestinal problems. 

Turned out that bacteria were causing their diarrhea, so pectin wasn’t really helping – which is fine, but I was annoyed about something else: it was a bloody (literally speaking) battle to get my cats to swallow any pill. I decided to give Attapectin a try when I read that you can dissolve it in water. Perfect, because it’s much easier to give Kajsa and Tessa liquids with syringes. It was, however, impossible to give Attapectin as a liquid: Dissolved in water, its texture was “porridge” and therefore too thick for a syringe.

Orion Pharma’s customer service was excellent and compensated me with a great parcel. They also recommended to use a bigger syringe next time. Great idea, but you can’t get any bigger from Finnish pharmacies.

Have you ever tried pectin with your cats? I’d love to hear your experiences, because Tessa and Kajsa are sometimes struggling with stomach problems.
