bad wet food!

just so you know, canned cat food is 3/4 water, if you worry that your kitty is still hungry after eating hard food could you imagine how hungry he'd be after eating a can of water!

I know that this sounds like a lot of work so do it as often as possible. Anything will help!

Fine Neddle Aspirate

I should have shown up but the sample was mostly fat and nothing was found. Harvey was much too stressed to try another and miranda isn't easy to handle.
