Thanksgiving Special: Pumpkin Pumpkin Pumpkin!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This is Lori, Kuma and Hanabi are taking a break from blogging. Instead, they are taking the blissful food coma nap.

As a Thanksgiving special, I will be talking about a favorite/pantry staple for the me and the cats: canned pumpkin!

Kuma and Hanabi both get a bit constipated from time to time. I googled and saw pumpkin is a great way to add some extra fiber and moisture into their diet. Conveniently, my voracious kitties lap up pumpkin like it’s the best treat in the world.

Nom nom nom, my favorite!

Nom nom nom, my favorite!

Hanabi: hey hey, watcha eating?

Kuma: Omg move. My pumpkin

It is my pumpkin now!

It is my pumpkin now!

I buy my cans in bulk from Amazon here:Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin, 15-oz. (Count of 12)

Remember, whatever you choose, opt for the pure pumpkin purees without any additives! I give my cats about 1 tablespoon a day. It definitely helps when they are having.. ahem… bowel movement issues (pictures of healthy looking cat poo as proof available upon request).

Human, write my blog for me... zzz

Kuma <3 Kiwi

The servant is particularly stingy with treats. Sigh. Someone please reach out to me. I need strategies on how to train my servant to properly give me treats. I’m scraping by on once or twice a week here. Mayybbee three times a week when I insist. Doesn’t the human know that my livelihood depends on daily treats?

Anyway. I want to share with you one of my favorite treats.

This.

Kiwi! Kiwi!!

Kiwi! Kiwi!!

Human, why aren't you cutting this open yet?

Human, why aren’t you cutting this open yet?

Now to all my readers out there, I too, was once deceived by the unappealing fuzzy brown skin of this crazy fruit.

When my servant dutifully cuts open the fruit for me though. PURRRRR.

Lick lick lick purrrrr

Lick lick lick purrrrr

Hmph, not too shabby human, not to shabby. The Kuma is impressed with your offering, I —- wait, where you going? Human! Come back with my treat right meow!

Lori’s note:

I have no idea why Kuma is so obsessed with kiwis, but it’s adorable! My vet confirmed that it is okay to give him a little bit of kiwi, but everything in moderation just to be safe.

I don’t give Kuma a lot of treats. Look at him. He doesn’t need the extra calories.

Human, I'm not fat, I'm big boned. Now feed me.

Hanabi has zero interest in kiwis.
