    Palatable alternative to egg yolk

    I make her food from rabbit leg meat, kidneys, and liver. None of it specifically shows up in USDA database. Unless you count, "various cuts". Although this is primarily beef, I imagine rabbit is relatively comparable. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3941824/

    Palatable alternative to egg yolk

    Vitamin D, in order of most to least, is available in the kidney, liver, and muscle meat I already include. It's probably not necessary to add more. As Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, it can be over-supplemented. Choline and the other B vitamins are water soluble. The risk of...

    Krista's Care

    11am poop was a smaller amount of pudding. No idea if there were any poops in there. Because she buried it again. 👍 I’m cool with that. Still too stinky to not come home over lunch and change it out. Stinky as it may be, it’s nice to come home to it buried in a box instead of blown out onto the...

    Krista's Care

    4am poop came earlier than expected. But same can be said about this one as the last one. There was flatulence and it was stinky. But she buried this one too. I think we’re making progress there.

    Krista's Care

    9:30 pm poop was flatulence and pudding and that's about all I can say about it. She took the time to bury it. One box. No walls, pads, or carpets were harmed. After yesterday's double-ended blowout, I started adding a "pinch" (1 pinch = 1/16 tsp) of psyllium per 5.5 oz of her canned food...

    Krista's Care

    Her noon pudding had a skinny piece of poop in it. One box. No pads or walls were harmed. 👍 I don't understand my Dysons. They are totally mum when my poopernaut ejects her stage 1 liquid fuel rockets. But if I want a steamy shower or I cook something on the stove, they totally lose their...

    Krista's Care

    Chlorambucil is an immune-suppressing drug. It would basically take the steam out of an allergic reaction.

    Krista's Care

    I’m looking at Wedgewood which is specifically for animals from horses to cats. Some flavors that might not appeal to cats might still appeal to dogs and horses. I didn’t get a chance to call today. Tomorrow I will call Wedgewood because the one my vet recommended seems to want to tout its own...

    Krista's Care

    At 2:45am, a perky Krista shows up on the bed, trillin' like Dylan. :dancingblackcat: "I pooped!" 🙊 "Yes, you did. Good girl. Let me clean your box. Then I may know a guy who can help you with that 3am feeder opening early..." One box blowout. Wall and pad did not escape the blast. But...

    Krista's Care

    Forgot to mention this in the morning: Stable at 6 lbs. But then my own weight had three different numbers. I prefer to think of her as stable at 6 than to chase the 0.2-0.3 lbs margin of error. She feels like a furry skeleton. I have to be very gentle with where and how I pet her now. This...

    Timed feeders for wet ...

    I like the WOPET clamshell. They do come with ice packs. I don't like the rotating one because my girl may not finish her portion before it rotates. You could end up with a lot of inaccessible food in the already rotated compartments. The PetSafe manual clamshells are garbage and can be...

    Krista's Care

    It's good to see what last poop was like in the post above to put this afternoon's double-ended blowout into perspective. I came home for lunch. Literally, as I was checking the boxes, she decided it would be a good idea to use one. "Oh excuse me, Krista. Don't mind me. Is it okay if I...

    How to make her fur glossier?

    If it’s just egg yolk (no other added ingredients/preservatives), yes, you can use a yolk in a carton product. But honestly, you will be feeding so little yolk that I suspect you won’t go through it quickly enough if you also aren’t eating eggs. If you were eating eggs yourself, I’d say scoop a...

    Cat treat ideas?

    Small Batch makes freeze-dried turkey hearts. Freeze-dried liver treats are also popular. And one that's popular with my toothless cat these days is Feline Natural's freeze-dried Green Tripe. It's soft enough for her to gum through them and she likes them well enough.
