The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter K. Kidney disease is sadly one of the main killers of kitties. I hope you never need this website, but if your cat is ever diagnosed with kidney disease, I highly recommend Tanya’s Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease. It covers everything you need to know about kidney disease from diet, medicine and so much more. Click Here.

  1. Had to laugh about the spilled cat food. Here, the dog races the cats to get it when she is around.

    Nice photos of your angel cats.

    We’ve had cats with kidney issues, one needed subq fluids daily. It’s not easy but good care helps.

  2. Those are sweet photos of your angels.
    I have never been supple enough to do backbends, but on a good day (when my meds haven’t made my joints lock) I can still touch the floor with the flats of my hands.
    #4 made me laugh.

  3. Meowser Ms. Ellen those were good answers. In our house, Saphera is more likely to beat us kitties to any food spill. I have concluded that she probably doesn’t even bother to check if what she is ‘hoovering up’ (the staff’s term) is actually food…. This is also why she was on a diet for over a year.
    I hope you have a lovely weekend and purrticularly fine Palm Sunday.

    1. Thank you. We call Sammy, the shop vac 🙂 I hope you have a blessed Palm Sunday too. XO

  4. Super filling in….you’re right about spilled cat food – in your house I’m sure that’s NEVER a problem cleaning up!!! I seem to remember in the deep dark distant past I could do a back bend – these days I’m afraid I’d NEVER recover if I tried!

    Hugs, Pam

  5. Those are two sweet photos! I could never do a backbend!
    My Fill-ins…
    1. I used to be able to spend a lot time in the sun, but I no longer can.
    2. I just can’t seem to give up those pesky carbs.
    3. I’m notorious for being a procrastinator.
    4. There is no use in crying over the things I can’t do anymore. I have found other thing I love to do.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I used to be a sun worshipper in my teens, but now I like the pale look 🙂 I love carbs too. Have anice weekend. XO

  6. We so like your fill-in answers. Never have to worry about leftover cat food around here, there is always some kitty kat to clean it up. You all have a super day.

  7. Great fill ins. #2 sounds like me – I can’t concentrate on things these days. Definitely agree with #4 and spilled cat food. Have a great weekend!

  8. I expect Tilly’s kidneys will be her downfall, but she’s doing okay so far. Be well, my dear! The junk food comment made me laugh.

  9. Alas, madame Colette didn’t get the memo on spilled cat food. If it is on the floor, it is for the human to clean up.

  10. 1. I used to be able to get off the floor easily, but I no longer can.
    2. I just can’t seem to stop eating food that’s bad for me.
    3. I’m notorious for getting into trouble.
    4. There’s no use crying over things you can’t change.

    Thanks for co-hosting Friendly Fill-ins.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Ellen. ♥

  11. Your A to Z is so informative. We need to bookmark all these sites. TW is scared I’m gonna get something kidney related since I drink so little. Four paws up for the #4 fill-in.

  12. MOL #4!! (Although we think it applies to ANY spilled food!)

    Our mom discovered that CRF site back in the early 2000s, when her little Sophie was diagnosed. It is a very helpful site.

  13. There are lots of things Mom can’t do anymore with her body. She wishes she had kept up better with exercising so she was more flexible. We don’t have spilled cat food here or dog food, but we do a darn good job of spilling our water:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  14. Love the angel bunny photos! Bittersweet reading as Orbit suffered with kidney issues. Great information, though.

  15. So cute:) Thanks for the website on kidney disease. Mookie was diagnosed last year. He has lost a lot of weight and muscle, but is doing okay with the meds and food.

  16. These two angels look so adorable in their pink bunny ears…I think I will save their pictures to enjoy from time to time. I will read the Kidney disease link. It has hurt all my babies since the get-go.

  17. That link is so good, I am saving it and about to send it to someone who will lose her girl tomorrow. She is devastated. I’m in tears reading all of this too.

  18. Awww Angel Phoebe and Angel Snowflake are such beautiful kitties and bunnies.

    Tiglet and The Soot Sprites, and Petra, too, make great vacuum cleaners when we have an oopsie around here. They are pretty good at causing them, too. 🙂 Drac was sitting in the shadows of the kitchen right in the walkway the other day. I was on the way to the microwave with a bowl of ramen. I didn’t see Drac and tripped on him. He scratched me something good and the soup went flying everywhere. Thankfully, I didn’t drop the bowl! Before I had recomposed myself, the furbabies had removed all need for the vacuum cleaner!

    Have a blessed day. 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 Sorry you got scratched. My black cats get stepped on more often too. I hope you had a blessed day too. XO

  19. I did acrobats/gymnastics as a child, and I miss being that flexible. Those were the days. At our house, it’s a toss up whether the cats or dog will eat spilled cat food. And I am so glad you mentioned Tanya’s site on kidney disease in cats. I used that site frequently after my angel Rosie was diagnosed with kidney disease. And we can’t get enough of you adorable Catburry Bunnies!

  20. 1. I used to be able to speak decent Spanish, but I no longer can.

    2. I just can’t seem to get much attention, locally, for my writing….but I ain’t giving up!

    3. I’m notorious for my sense of humor.

    4. There’s no use crying over the lack of traffic for one’s writing…just keep at it, just keep being creative….never give up!
