So, here's how we hoodwinked the mom.
I started removing my eyebrows (and some butt furs too) earlier this year. Being part meezer, I'm a little high strung and haven't really gotten over being feral. Things bother me. Like Carl and Julie. I can't relax, and am always on my guard. Last winter my eyebrows started to grow back after getting a shot and some meds, but this time around it didn't work.
Moo with eyebrows removed.
The nice lady Marg suggested calming treats to our mom saying they worked for one of her cats. Yay! Treats AND no trips to the VET, it s win-win solution. Almost.
The mom ordered 2 bags and started giving me a treat twice a day, or so she thought. I sniffed and licked them. The mom walked away, then Oui Oui ran in and ate the treats! The mom didn't get suspicious when she saw Oui Oui licking her little whisker humps cause she is such a fussy eater. Or at least, not for a couple days.
The irony is just sickening! Moo eats EVERYTHING! Everything except calming treats, apparently. Oui Oui refuses to eat just about everything. Everything except calming treats, apparently. The treats are chicken liver and brewer's yeast favored. Favors she would never eat in canned food.
Here's a partial list of what Oui Oui won't eat: Anything with bits, shreds or gravy. Pate only, please. Chicken, beef, liver, lamb, ham, turkey, cheese, "white" fish, salmon, tuna, mackerel, trout and sardines. So what will she eat? Little Friskies Mariner's Catch and Sea Captain's Choice, Fancy Feast Sole & Shrimp and 9 Lives Seafood Platter.)
Now I am getting a small appetizer before breakfast and bedtime with the treats mixed in. I eat them separately in my safe room so Oui Oui doesn't eat it. When Oui Oui tried to steal the bag out of the mom's hands and chew it open right in front of her, the mom decided to see if she could find some less expensive treats with the same taste online for her.
