All our cats eat a variety of treats every day. Gris Gris goes crazy for real fishy flakes of sun-dried bonita from Flint River Ranch Fish Flakes. They are 100% shaved Bonita fish harvested off the open waters of Japan, and naturally sun-dried to produce a very light and tasty snack. Bonita is the common name for a fish belonging to the tuna and mackerel family, and bonita flakes are often used in Japanese cooking. The low-fat and high protein (75%) flakes are as light and thin as rice paper with an alluring smell.
If your cat is ill or losing weight, add Bonita Flakes to their food to stimulate eating. The pieces can be broken into any size which makes them handy as training treats. Unlike other crunchy type treats, cats without teeth like Gris Gris can easily eat these. FlintRiverRanch.com
Our big news is about Domino. I mentioned weeks ago about my secret Santa wish to have Domino sleep on our bed with the others. We’d made huge strides getting him indoors most nights. I felt confident when he began sleeping in an armchair in the cat room, then a chair in our bedroom. Step by slow step, he inched closer to the bed. One night he curled up underneath the step stool to the bed while I read in bed. I craned my neck to see him and smiled, communicating telepathically, you are welcome here, it’s safe and cozy. The next night, he hopped right into bed, snuggled in the duvet wedged between hubby and Merlin. He bestowed both of them with wet kisses and the air filled with thunderous purrs. This is a cat who never purred for years. Hubby and I glanced at each other afraid to breathe, incredulous. Gris Gris who often sleeps at my feet, edged his body closer to his pals. Odin surveyed the scene from the comfort of the heating pad by the window. Thank-you Santa!
I’d like to say, Domino adjusted to sleeping in bed but he hasn’t, yet. His adjustment from feral life zigs and zags. He demands to be outside all day and evening. He runs away when either of us asks him in despite the frosty air. Most nights he agrees to be caught and carried in at bedtime. He’s a work in progress but then again, aren’t we all?
