They Like Us Again

Our alpha cat has problems. She licks patches of fur off, sometimes until she causes scabs. So recently, we changed up her food.

We started with the wet food that we feed the cats.

None of our five cats ate it. None. The dog was delighted to receive their leftovers.

After 2 weeks, we returned to their beloved Friskies, and they ate. Ms. Alpha was still licking, so we switched their dry food.

Again, the cats went on a hunger strike. And what was worse, the feral outside wouldn’t eat it either. The birds loved it and cleaned up the dishes.

Grr. For 2 months we switched to 2 different brands with low grains, more protein, yada, yada,  yada. The cat was still licking but not as bad. But she was getting skinnier and she isn’t a big cat to begin with.

So, we switched back to the Friskies dry and everyone, including the ferals, are happy again.

Now, we are dropping anti-anxiety herbal remedies into their water. She’s still licking, but not as much. Here’s hoping we’re on the right track.

Until next time!

  1. We had a similar problem with our dog and it was too much protein, apparently. We changed her food and it did clear up 🙂
