I haven't posted here for a couple days since I've been sick and busy with our old cat and Sir Cheeps-A-Lot.
Our old cat came home from the vet on Tuesday. They gave us this Royal Canin food for his pancreatitis and although I am not fond of Royal Canin and its ingredients list, we have to be mindful of what he eats now. So if it is helping prevent a massive crash like we saw the other week, I don't care what rendered animal parts or cereals are in it. Unfortunately, when my mum actually googled the food to see if there might be a better alternative it specifically said do not use on cats with pancreatitis! So we are going to ask the vet to clear that up for us.
Sir Cheeps-A-Lot is still here. He seems to be doing alright. Most of his feathers have started coming in now and he is starting to get opinionated about what he wants to do and when he wants to do it. Yesterday we had a disagreement about him going into his 'nest' and sleeping as opposed to trying to climb out and sit on my lap.
I still worry every single time he does something like fluff his feathers or yawn. I also have this fear about leaving the door to that room open. We have three cats that would like very much to get into that room.
On the fish side of things, not much has been happening. My hendra pair spawned again, my apiapi and hendra fry are growing well and I moved my coccina group onto my rack so I have my bedside table free now.
My burdigala tank is emptied out and their plants are all outside in a tub with some aqua soil in the bottom for nutrients. Of course my dog thinks it is more like a dog wading pool rather than a grow-out for plants I intend on selling.
Jodi-Lea does have a pair of rutilans available. I emailed about the cost of postage but haven't heard back so going to shoot another email off today so I can pay and have them sent out early next week. This will allow me to pick up some plants for their tank and my other tanks over the weekend.
My persephone group definitely need the 3ft footprint. I was watching them all today and with the amount of aggression the males show towards each other and the females I think a longer tank is much more suitable.
This poor male was being bullied by one of his brothers pictured above.
