Mancat Monday: A Delicate Subject


Merlin here and welcome to another Mondays with Merlin. It’s also Mancat Monday, but today’s subject is not just for the boys. It’s a delicate subject about regularity and er, I confess to not being able to go with the flow as much lately. Layla went to the farm and said the pumpkins had arrived which was good news for me. Mind you, you can used the canned variety but fresher is better. Enough blathering. Here’s what she suggests. The cat in the photo is the farm cat and doesn’t seem to need any pumpkin. I wish you a smooth beginning to the new week and may you always go with the flow.

  1. Well you put that very politely Merlin – thank you for the tip! Mr Darcy sometimes has the opposite problem, but I’ll remember this for future reference… just in case. Hope the pumpkin does it’s job for you 🙂

  2. Most interesting! So far so good in that department for Sammy but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen – – – I’ll remember the tip…I adore pumpkin myself and if it’s easily “hidden” in food, I bet Sam would indulge and receive the desired benefit! Thanks Layla……..


  3. I guess my latest post could be taken as being along the same lines lolol. Thanks for the tip, but Austin ahem doesn’t usually let me in on his little private moments behind the crocosmia!! 🙂

  4. Ah! good to know. Our mancats do not seem to suffer from that, but they are only 9. They also eat plants any chance they get. I love pumpkin in any form. And especially a piece of pie every fall. Thanks for a great article~

  5. Good luck with that. We wouldn’t touch any of our stinky goodness with even just a bit of pumpkin in, when the mom tried it once (for the opposite problem we boys were having, briefly).

  6. I’m laughing so hard my sides hurt! Great post – and great advice.

    Interestingly enough, pumpkin can help regulate both constipation and diarrhea, and most cats won’t detect the added “flavor” at all.
