Pretty good news to report today...
Last night I went home, after a trip to the store...with Tuna in water...and the smelliest fancy feast I could find (Sardines, Crab and Shrimp in Aspic Sauce)
I barely had to wave the bowl in front of dylans face and he hopped of his perch on his chair and ran over to where I put the bowl and chowed down!!!
Then, once he was finished, there was still the task of his medication...which someone suggested I crush up and put in tuna juice (i.e. water from tuna can). I did this, put a about a teaspoon of juice in a shot glass and mixed well, then added a pinch of tuna and put on a tiny saucer. Dylan had lapped it all up within 5 minutes.
This was so great and I was so please with him, because even if he does go back to no interest...atleast he had a good meal in between.
But!! In the middle of the night, somehow, (I probably had a bad dream, or my boyfriend--the bed hog--pushed me over...) but dylan, who was sound asleep at my side, woke me with clawing noises at the side of the bed as he tried to catch himself from falling off. Poor little guy got pushed off the bed! I got up and tried to comfort him...but he was so startled by this that he slept on the floor.
At some point, he crept into the living room and finished off the smelly fancy feast in his bowl...and ate enough crunchy food to make a huge mess on the floor around the bowl...or as Elizabeth says about Sasha--"food art" !
So, because I don't know what time he had this late night snack...I wasn't that upset that he wasn't interested in breakfast. He had a few bites then hid. And ate only a few bites of the pill infused tuna plate too.
Tonight I will make sure he has a bigger dinner...maybe one when I get home and one before we go to bed.
