    Kibble Suggestions / Rant

    Back to needing a new kibble, all because of the vet suggested food. So, Astrid has lost the weight she had to use, so the vet (different than the one I normally see, this one is the cat-specific one) suggested I feed a Science Diet dental care t/d along with the RC calorie control... I told...

    Astrid's Custom Cat Tree!!

    So, as you guys might know, I hate cat trees lol anyone I have found is horribly ugly. Plus I'm not paying 500$ for something that has no play value and is made of fur nastiness. BUT my nanna found a lady that custom makes cat trees!!! So I finally got exactly what I wanted and tailed to Astrid...

    The "OTHER" Blankie... Astrid's Travel Blanket

    So when I first got Astrid, my Nanna created a monster by making a super fuzzy blankie for Astrid... that she now refuses to sleep without.. meaning I have to shoved a queen sized blanket into my suitcase each time I go home!! So in prep for this trip home, I made a small fuzzy blanket for the...

    Astrid's Stroller!

    So, I bought an actual kid stroller for Miss Astrid. I wanted something that was cheap and not just a novelty thing. So I found this one second hand for $20 and added a uv protection mesh over it. Astrid fits perfectly! I just need to work on how I attach her to the seat. She seemed to like it...

    Stella & Chewy's Freeze Dried Raw Food: Astrid's Eating Wet Food!!!!

    So, as some of you know, Astrid refuses to eat wet food. BUT she is eating the Chicken freeze dried raw stuff rehydrated!!! I think it's because it doesn't smell nasty; I pretty much had to stick my nose into her bowl to smell it. It does not smell like wet food at all! So hopefully she keeps...

    Hi! Astrid's feeder came today! They came back in stock just in time thankfully. Was pretty easy to set up, had to manually set it up to Wi-Fi. The "easy" way was not working at all lol of course. It's a bit noisy, but it doesn't seem to freak Astrid out. I have it set for her four daily...

    Astrid's Catio: tether line ☀️

    So I came up with a cheap, and removable solution so Astrid can be outside by herself. In total it cost me 5$ and it allows her to go all over the patio and no be able to get out. I live on the third floor technically, so cannot have her getting curious and trying to wiggle under the bars. So...
