Tanaka Thursday

Finally I am allowed to post somefing! The little girl has been having a lot of her say here. Thank goodness she has run out offur fings to say. Here I am wif san in the afternoon. We usually sit together. It is usually very quiet in the afternoons.
We boys need some time as well although my bruffer likes napping in the afternoons. I prefur snoopervising and at this moment I was snoopervising him. :))

ps. san says she wants to ask offur mommies advice. I had eaten a lot offur grass when I was unwell and now I have some trouble pooing. The grass refuses to get out wif the poop and so I have to run madly to get away from the swinging poop. She has given me some tuna-flavoured laxative but she is wondering what else she can give me for it.

We are sorry to hear about your grass issues, Tanaka-Chan. When we eat grass in the run, we usually throw it up. Maybe adding a little oil to wet food would help? We also heard that cooked green beans might help?

Oh dear. The grass will likely just work it's way through your tummy. I usually just throw it up too. I do hope you are feeling better. Meow, from Jessica

If you can get it, slippery elm bark powder. It's safe for kitties and helps poo slide out! Mixed with a little all meat baby food (no onion powder in it, please), it is often well accepted.

Just be aware that slippery elm bark powder has the potential to inhibit absorption of medications because it coats the intestines (which is why it's soothing to upset tummies and helps constipation), so give it away from any meds.

This site explains it (often used for kitties in renal failure because that can cause constipation, too) -

Felix had this problem...Mommy gave him some Miralax, (not sure what it's called there)about 1/16 tsp in tuna water for a week. It draws water into the bowel and makes the poop easier to "move".
