(Warning: If you are eating breakfast while reading this, I say ‘poop’.)
So, I dropped a poop sample off at the vet to see why Cricket has had troubles the past two weeks. They called with the results – no parasites, thank goodness, but she might be missing some beneficial bacteria from her system due to the antibiotic shot she got a while back. The vet said, “Bulk up her diet with some special cat food (iams) and try giving her some ‘active cultures’.” So, I stood in the dairy aisle and perused the yogurt selection….for my cat.
Yep. The stuff that’s good for us might just restore my cat to normal. I actually hemmed and hawed on which flavor to buy, and then I realized that she’ll eat anything. Really. Some of the things Cricket likes to eat:
Red bell pepper
Corn on the cob
Really, any veggies
Chocolate chip cookies
(I think she actually might be a dog.)
So, strawberry yogurt was obviously the way to go, because that’s the flavor I like. We’ll be splitting a carton for the next eight days.
