    How much premix do you need to add to a jar of baby food for assist feedings, and what's a good source of fiber/bulk to include as needed?

    I got the instructions from the premix manufacturer quite a while back, and they told me to add 1-1/2 tsp. It made the baby food really thick and gloppy, so I had to add a ton of water to get the consistency thin enough to draw it up with a syringe. I mean, that's not necessarily a bad thing...

    How much premix do you need to add to a jar of baby food for assist feedings, and what's a good source of fiber/bulk to include as needed?

    If you need to add premix to a 2.5 oz. jar of baby food, do you base the amount you need on 2.5 oz.? Or do you just assume each jar only contains 1 oz. of meat? The reason I ask is because I recently stumbled across this info (from the article: Raw Feeding for IBD Cats), and now I'm wondering...

    Question of the Day, Wednesday, April 29, 2020

    "The perfect is the enemy of the good." I'm a perfectionist by nature, and used to be really hard on myself if I couldn't meet my impossibly high self-imposed standards. So this quote helps me to keep things in perspective. Sometimes it doesn't really matter if I don't get something done as...

    What are you watching/streaming?

    I had been dabbling in a bit of everything, e.g., musicals, dramas, comedies, history documentaries, nature documentaries, etc. But now that we've cancelled Netflix, I've mostly been watching Chinese dramas on Prime. I got hooked on them a few years ago after binge watching The Legend of Zhen...

    How do you keep your glasses from fogging up when wearing a mask outside?

    Ooh, I forgot about shaving cream! I've heard that works great for keeping bathroom mirrors from getting fogged up, but I never thought about trying it on my glasses. Thanks bunches. The masks we've been using have a wire at the top where you can mold them to fit your face. But I guess that...

    How do you keep your glasses from fogging up when wearing a mask outside?

    IMHO, I don't think a mask would be necessary if you're on your own property, as long as you practice proper social distancing, which everyone around here does anyway. If we see someone outside we want to talk to, we just stay in our own yard and yell. :) But when you live in a small town...

    How do you keep your glasses from fogging up when wearing a mask outside?

    Huh. I'll give the spit a try. I can't quite seem to get the knack of using the right amount of soapy water. I either get too much or not enough. :) Thanks!

    How do you keep your glasses from fogging up when wearing a mask outside?

    We live in a hot, humid climate, and my glasses fog up something fierce when I wear a mask outside. So I was just wondering if there's an obvious solution that I'm overlooking, e.g., a different type of mask, a different fabric, etc. :) I still have a ton of outdoor chores that I need to do...

    What was your first car?

    My first car was a used 1972 Ford Pinto, with a manual transmission. I absolutely adored that car! It was fun to drive, and had tons of storage space when you put the back seat down. But I got spooked after there were all those news reports about the gas tank exploding, so my next car was an...

    Question of the Day - Tuesday, April 21

    My neighbor's potato salad. It was the blandest, soggiest, most unappetizing mess I've ever eaten in my life. Thankfully, she makes pretty awesome flan, so I'm willing to overlook that potato salad abomination. :lol:

    The Positive Thread 2020

    Awesome! Yay, you! :cheerleader: We're pretty flexible about what a 'thing' can be each day. I'm a big fan of the saying, "The way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time," because sometimes a project can seem too overwhelming to tackle all at once. So it's okay if someone wants to break a...

    The Positive Thread 2020

    I finally got my paws on some bleach!!! :biggrin: Oh, and our family is finally getting into the spirit of our daily "3 Things" challenge. I've asked everyone to do at least three things a day beyond their usual chores/routines to improve themselves or our cozy little corner of the world, or...

    Your cat's favorite food?

    Pretty much anything we're running low on! Then as soon as our order arrives, they suddenly don't like it anymore. :lol:

    (Very late) Question of the Day, Friday, April 18

    I miss just being able to buy whatever I need whenever I need it. It's so frustrating to stand in line for an hour or two just to get inside the store, only to find out that they don't have what you need. So you go somewhere else and stand in another line, and that store doesn't have it either...

    What is a decent OTC alternative to Revolution for a cat with FIV?

    Thankfully, we have tons of vacuum cleaner bags, so I can at least vacuum like crazy while we're hunkered down. :) We also have nearly a whole bag of food grade diatomaceous earth that I can put around the house until I can buy something to spray the yard for fleas. We've been using beneficial...
