Mrs. Slocombe has had kidney problems since she was three in 2003. It's gotten worse. The vet said it was moderate. She recommended essentially the same regimen. Water, NF wet cat food - a kidney formula.

Does anyone have any tricks to get the little beast to drink extra water or know of any supplements? Thanks

Someone told me that cats will drink more if you have lots of water bowls around, something about it attracts them and it is true. I can tell Gracie is drinking more because of the number and size of the pee balls in the litter. Emotion: smile

You can add water to the wet cat food, a couple of tablespoons easily. Also, ask your vet about giving her sub-cutaneous fluids at home. It's not hard to do it yourself and inexpensive. Your vet can show you how to administer them.

Every night at bedtime, TuTu gets water by an eyedropper -=- she loves the procedure. She was sick when I adopted her and had to have medication. I followed the med up with water from the eyedropper this started the ritual. She sits in front of me and opens her mouth so I can insert the eyedropper into the side of her mouth. In the Spring she will be 13 years old. In the beginning she got it morning and night, Good luck. MLB

I used to take lots of pictures. I gave my small camera to youngest granddaughter. I have a Polaroid which I liked very much. Am currently out of film and I am not sure if it is still available. I have boxes and albums of pictures which now collect dust. I've tried to talk the grandkids into taking some of the pictures but they have a surplus of their own> What to do what to do? There comes a time when there is just too much. MLB
