The Big Cat Diet

So a bunch of people have been asking me for details on my diet to win the Super Bowl bet so I thought I would share. First, let’s get one thing out of the way. Anyone who thinks I cheated is a moron. Was I smart in my weight loss to give me every opportunity to lose max weight? Yes. Did I cheat? Absolutely not. Feits even said off camera he doesn’t think I cheated. When I weighed in at 231 lbs that was real. Now I fully admit I had quite the weekend leading up to weigh in. Hit the Horseshoe Buffet about a million times on Saturday and basically ate while full on Sunday. 231 was absolutely inflated by some unhealthy weekend eating/drinking, I never once denied that. Why wouldn’t I add last second weight that would come off easier in the first few days of the diet? To not do that would be foolish. Now as for the diet, it went in 3 parts. Step 1 Juice. The first 3 days I went on a green juice diet. It was basically the worst thing possible. You drink juice, your stomach hurts, and you pee out of your ass. It fucking sucks, but if you can be mentally tough about it, it will definitely kick start your diet and basically shed 10 pounds of excess water and garbage you have stored i Continue reading >>

    I had a litter of 4 kittens, 14 weeks old, who came down with panleuk. The first two that got sick passed in less than 12 hours from their initial symptoms (they were being treated with fluids and karo), the second two both started showing symptoms a day after the second kitten had passed.
    These two seem a bit more resistant and have made it past the 24 hour mark. The vet gave them a shot for nausea sothey haven't been vomiting at least. They've been getting fluids and karo (although they hate the karo and try to fight me so they've only been getting about 1mL every 2 hours.) What worries me now is that they smell like they're in ketosis (acetone type smell) and I don't think I can give them much more karo without seriously stressing them out.
    What would be the best course of action? Force more karo? Give them fat instead? They're very resistant to anything by mouth. The rescues vet said they can't do anything more and to take them to the ER if I need more help but of course the rescue won't pay for that. I've never dealt with kittens in ketosis though.

    They need food - protein! Syringe feed them watered down Gerber turkey baby food every 1-2 hours.
    It sounds like way too much Karo syrup. Too much sugar.
    Use unflavored pedialyte instead of Karo. It is a proper electrolyte solution for helping dehydration.
    I hope they pull through.

    Ketosis is caused by a complete lack of carbohydrates so that wouldn't make any sense
    And thank you. I'm really hoping they make it. Every hour is a victory.

Symptoms Of Diabetes In Cats

Diabetes is a serious health problem that threatens humans as well as cats and other companion animals. Complications from this condition arise from the victim's inability to process glucose. The scope of the symptoms depends on the severity of the disorder, but there are common warning signs owners can look for. Excessive Thirst The most common symptom associated with feline diabetes is a marked increase in the cat's desire to drink and urinate, according to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. Since diabetic kitties can't process or use glucose properly, the molecule accumulates in their bladder and bloodstream. The presence of glucose in the urine causes your cat to expel more water when he relieves himself, which forces him to drink more to compensate. Glucose also encourages the growth of bacteria, so felines with diabetes also are more likely to develop urinary tract infections. Weight Changes The concentration of glucose molecules in your cat's brain is a key factor to regulating his desire to eat. Since diabetes interferes with sugar levels in the bloodstream, drastic changes in appetite are likely in cats suffering from the disease, according to Washi Continue reading >>

The Right Diet For Cats With Cancer

While cancer in cats is not as common as it in dogs, it is still one of the leading causes of death in older cats. According to the Animal Cancer Foundation, 6 million cats will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States along. And because cats are masters at masking illness, it is often harder to detect. Cancer used to be a death sentence for cats, but recent advances in feline cancer research have made treatment possible in many cases. Just like with human cancers, early detection is key to successful treatment. Depending on the type of cancer, treatment options may include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Cancer changes the body’s metabolism Cancer changes how the body metabolizes nutrients. Cancer cells metabolize glucose (from carbohydrates) and make lactate that the body then tries to convert back into glucose. This process diverts energy from the cat, feeding the cancer instead. Cancers also convert amino acids, the building blocks of protein, into energy, which causes muscle wasting, poor immune function, and slow healing. Additionally, tumor cells have difficulty utilizing fat as a source of energy. All of this results in what’s known as “cancer cachexia,” Continue reading >>
