Happy Pi Day! I’m hardly a math nerd, but the geekiness is hard to let slide. ^_^
Anyway, as of yesterday, Uschi is now fully transitioned onto Nature’s Variety Chicken Meal and I’m happy about this for a number of reasons.
For one, during most of the transition she’s had intermittent diarrhea, which is why the transition has taken over two months. She’s been doing much better towards the latter portion of the transitioning so I’m confident that she doesn’t have any issue with the kibble itself.
I’m also glad to see that she’s eating more regularly. Getting her onto a schedule has been something of a struggle between her disinterest in food and her own quirky habits. I can generally get her to eat breakfast with little issue, but dinner is often completely ignored. I think this might be chalked up to a “funky tummy” from switching foods because she’s been consistently eating both meals for the last week or so. I haven’t weighed her since our first trip to the vet’s, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s dropped a bit because of this. Though, I hardly think it’s anything as substantial as Yara’s dramatic loss. Either way, I expect she’ll pack it back on just fine if she continues this new trend.
And given the advent of nicer weather, I hope to get both of us out for more. So the increase in activity should certainly keep her appetite in check.
