9/11 Catfood Hoarding

Protect.jpg I was reading about somebody’s post 9/11 idiosyncrasies, and one of mine is hoarding catfood. Finney has to get special catfood for his urinary issues, and when we were attacked I thought, ‘What if I can’t get Finney’s catfood?? How long can he last with what I’ve got on hand?’

So ever since then, along with my “go bag,” I try to always have plenty of catfood in the house, just in case.

Buddy gets the same food. They go back and forth between each other’s bowls and I couldn’t figure out how to make them stop, aside from separating them, which didn’t seem realistic since they take time to eat, and since my vet assures me it’s fine to feed Buddy the same food, this is my expensive practice.

  1. Chico gets that food, too, and I feed it to both cats because they were eating each other’s food. Oddly enough, it’s worked better than any other food for Ashley’s irritable bowel.

  2. Oh, that’s interesting about the irritable bowel. Maybe because it’s a higher quality food?

    Karen, the stove works but it’s not hooked up. There’s a whole story behind that stove. I posted about it, but it was in the apartment next door which was empty for decades, and the super let me take the stove. It is beautiful, isn’t it?
