Stop telling my secrets, the mom!
Immediately all the kitties LOVED the taste, even fussy-as-can-be Oui Oui! The mom was shocked. She also tried a small amount of it, and its very mild tasting.
Its been a short while, and Oui Oui's furs are softer (Carl's fur is naturally very soft as he is half Persian). Both Carl and Oui Oui also seem to have less dander.
I'm hiding from embarrassment.
Our dosage? All the kitties just lick some off the mom's finger every night and a little seems to go a long way, but maybe a quarter of a teaspoon at night at the most. It seems like it would be good to keep kitties regular, but as none of the kitties here have that type of problem, the mom tries to be a little cautious so no one gets the squirts.
What can I say?
Of course, Mica Minnie Moo is much more problematic. Opening the jar scares her, closing the jar scares her, scratching her with coconut oiled fingers scares her, being held while being oiled scares her. Then she starts licking. And removing. We tried oiling her about a month ago and gave up.
She has been on kitty Prozac a couple weeks now, and guess what! Nothing's changed! Ok, she's stopped hissing and growling at Carl, but the problems during oiling remain. And now she shakes and makes bad kitty sounds too. The mom has tried smearing oil up and down her front legs so she has something to do instead of hair removal, and playing with her when she starts the removal process to distract her, but its a lot of work. She is one of the laziest players ever, she just sits there, batting, so she doesn't tire out.
Why does everyone pick on me because of my supposed "attitude"?
So the question is, can the oil work from the inside out? Because the oil on the outside just encourages more licking. An Elizabethan collar might work, but MMM would probably have a heart attack from it. We'll do a follow up in a couple weeks, when its had some time to work.
Tomorrow, Coconut Oil and the Beans - a couple really good uses for coconut oil and one really strange one.
