Happy Gotcha Day, Spunky Doodle!

We've had Spunky Doodle 12 years now and I am pleased to report that she is eating well again and is almost over her ear infection.  She has a bit of arthritis and the vet said there is some medicine I could sprinkle on her food that would help with that; however, I wanted to wait for the ear infection to be gone first.  I hesitate putting anything on her food in case she doesn't like it because then it may cause her to refuse to eat.  Has anyone else tried doing this for their cat?  

We brought Spunky in as a second cat when she was just a kitten.  She was born in May actually to one of the strays that hung out at my dad's home.  There were four in the litter but I was attracted to Spunky, not just because she was so cute but also very brave.  I saw her trying to climb the tree in front of my dad's house and thought she was very brave and adventurous.  I couldn't bear the thought of her having to live outdoors through a Cleveland winter so on July 17, 2004, I brought her home and took her to PetSmart for her shots.

I used Cosequin for Grace..but you have to watch the dosage. Too much makes them vomit. But it works, so if you adjust the dosage for your cat, it is great.

Happy Gotcha Day to all of you! what a happy day!
