Some of you may be wondering how Garfield is faring after almost two weeks of being with us. Well in one word, TERRIFIC!!
He's settled right in, lovable, quiet, unassuming and best of all...........SWEET, SWEET, SWEET!
If there are any negatives, it's that we're still battling abit of diarrhea with our boy. We changed his food over to something from Science Diet for sensitive stomach's, and although I thought we were on our way to remedy, it would appear from this morning's bathroom visit that we still have a ways to go. So now the confusion lies in whether it was the original food, this new food, a combination of switching, or the meds, anxiety about being moved, or is he needing to be dewormed again.
I doubt the repeat of deworming only because he had no issues when he first arrived and I know that had he been battling them at the shelter, they would have either noted it on his intake card OR euthanized him (convinced he was unwell).
We'll keep trying to find the right balance and hopefully can have it under control before anyone comes to see him for adoption.
PS: Have I mentioned how much I'm loving having him in the house - always a bad sign.
PPS: Here is Garfield, snuggled into the crook of my husband's arm for an afternoon snooze together.
