Well, Oscar went to his new foster home today. Oscar has IBS. Oscar is about 9 months but thin but was started today on Purina Overweight Management food by our vet. I know, it seems a little odd, but Purina OM is a low-residue food and that's what we need to try Oscar on first. He'll get dry and canned. Per an animal nutritionist, it takes several months for the old food to get completely out of the system, so he'll be on this food for a while. If that doesn't work, then we start the long process of trying other foods including a grain free cat food, the duck and green pee food, etc. Most likely, Oscar will never have great poop, but if we can get it where it's not completely horrible, we can find him a great home.
Oscar's new foster mom has a cat who also has IBS, so she's the perfect (should I be corny and say purr-fect) person to foster him.
But I'm sad because he's my boo. I love that little monkey. Who's going to sleep on my pillow now?
