I have a kitten food question & a progress report. I could put the food question on Cat Health but I want to keep all of George in one place for awhile if it's ok, sort of like a Journal I guess.
First, I cannot believe the progress that the pups & George have made with each other. In a way it seems as if George has been here for months rather than since April 13. Sissy Pom & George actually play together (sort of chase each other) while LilGirl watches. Yes, Sissy has stopped that incessant barking & LilGirl doesn't growl at him nearly as much. Also I feel safe now for George to be alone with both of them as he has showed that he can protect himself if necessary & the pups aren't scared of him any more. George is no longer in my bed but now stays in the den with Sissy at night & I've brought LilGirl back to my bedroom. Little George is a sweetie with his purring & good personality but his claws & teeth HURT me when he played at night while I was trying to sleep.
Now here's my kitten food question. What is a good dry kitten food? I'm thinking Grain Free & perhaps Blue Buffalo Wilderness. When I got George he was on some kind of dry CAT food (not kitten I think) & I have been gradually giving him Purina Kitten mixed with his old food. Ever since I got him his stools have been very soft & sometimes diarrhea. I took him back to vet & got some Metro, some packs of probiotic, & some Hill's A/D canned food at $2.30/can. I can feed him that for awhile but don't want to have to take out a loan to feed him LOL. He is a little pig in the eating department--a can a day. I'm gradually adding the Purina kitten food but I'm not sure it agrees with George. I hate to buy many bags of different food because it's expensive for trial & error so I'd like to find one at the start that is good for him.
What do you all think of Dry Blue Buffalo Wilderness-Kitten? Do you think it will help with his soft stools? Do we agree that Grain Free is better than with grain?
BTW as of today 4.24, his eyes are still blue.
