Our cat, Tim Tam, is twelve years old. With old age comes health problems and our poor kitten has been fighting a slight thyroid issue. He can’t control his own body temperature (which means he seeks out laps) and he whines (more so than usual).
To fight this, we have to give him a pill every day which is fun for the whole family because that’s just how many of us are required to get the damn thing down his throat.
A side effect is that he doesn’t eat as much food either, so he’s been losing weight. Tonight we picked up some canned food to see if that might entice him to eat more. He provided valuable feedback on our efforts.
