He’s always had a temperamental gastrointestinal system but it’s gotten worse in recent weeks. We did some research and added a teaspoon of mashed pumpkin to his diet twice a day. That seems to have helped and he really loves the sweet bonus treat. However, he’s also come down with the sniffles a couple of days ago. He still has a strong appetite and isn’t showing any other signs of illness so we’re just watching him closely and waiting for his little cold to pass. Send some happy thoughts his way! He’s really such a sweet kitty. He loves people and loves attention and his only bad behavior involves eating anything he can put into his mouth! He only wants to sleep and snuggle, poor little guy!
Yet another thing I forgot to blog about!
Dale LOVES a project. And as winter dragged on in January, Dale decided to make his own sand bags. He didn’t want to pay the $25–$35 each (click on prices to see the styles he modeled his after) at the camera store for a bag of sand–he just couldn’t justify the price. He made a total of 10 and he said they cost him about $6.50 each to make, using the same materials as the commercial equivalents!
He borrowed a bag from our friend Pat and then reverse-engineered the bags to make his own. He’s even had photographers on message boards offer to buy the bags (empty, of course)!
