Sometimes the best intentions can still lead to trouble. Phoenix and her red raw skin have improved tremendously while eating her hypoallergenic rabbit and rice diet. But, having been on it for 2 months now, we were hoping to see her scratching stop. It's decreased, but still a large part of her daily routine, so we made the decision to change her diet to a different protein/carbohydrate source to see if that woud indeed solve the problem. A teaspoon of the new diet, duck/green pea, caused this poor sensitive girl 2 days of vomiting and diarrhea, and even more scratching! Agh!

The other kitties are not feeling too badly for her, after all, now they get to eat a new flavor of canned cat food! Phoenix is staying on rabbit/rice, with no more diet changes, however slight. Scratching aside, she's looking quite gorgeous these days ~ she'll be ready for her summer bikini in no time!
