In my continuing quest to increase the cats’ health, I have decided to administer pumpkin to them. The vegetable is supposed to help with regularity in the bowels which, even if it is not a problem for the cats, may become one as they age, and they are all ten years or older. I don’t know how this effort will be received. I am told that many cats like, or at least don’t mind, the taste of pumpkin. The printing on hairball remedy tubes states that “cats love it!”, so I know that people don’t know all that much about feline tastes. Nonetheless, I will make the attempt.
I have read that a small amount of pumpkin given every day is recommended, but I have a feeling that at least some of my beasts will not like the new substance, in which case, a weekly feeding by syringe may be as much as I can expect to give. To be honest, I don’t know if that minimum would be enough to make a difference to their well-being.
I will conduct the experiment this weekend. By Sunday, my roommates will either have discovered a tasty new treat, or be in a bad mood.
