Hello all! I have been very busy lately (the reason I haven't updated this blog in a while) but figured I'd give an update on a few things. Smokey and Sunny are still eating Purina ONE Beyond because I haven't been able to stop by the store that sells Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul (I don't even know if they have it right now, I may have to ask them to order it for me). I'm probably going to go by today and see if they have it/can get it for me. Sunny still hasn't lost much weight but I'm still NOT giving up on that. I think several people in the house feel sorry for her and feed her when she begs for more! They are also getting Fancy Feast canned (Chicken, Turkey & Giblets, Salmon, and Ocean Whitefish and Tuna, all in the "Classic" variety) and lately, I've been adding some Fancy Feast Appetizers to their dry food in the morning. This food is pretty awesome, although it is not a complete diet. It is just chicken/beef/fish in a broth with no by-products or fillers. They're kinda expensive so I use one tray for 3 days (between 2 cats too). Lilly is doing good. I still am trying to tame her though... Seze is doing good and is a much better weight now that I'm feeding her meal-worms AND crickets. She is also looking stronger since I've been dusting her insects with calcium (she was malnourished when I got her and has been attempting to recover ever since). My reef tank has been up and down in terms of doing well. I have one unhappy coral that I've been trying to make happy and MAYBE have started making progress on. I've been doing very large water changes lately (25% a week when I usually only do 10% a week). The freshwater tank is doing fine and doesn't require a whole lot of maintenance. The seahorses are doing well but the tank doesn't LOOK good right now. I'm going to work on it ASAP. I hope everyone has a great Thursday!
