05:03 pm: Protein for Cats
Well, I cooked the turkey drumsticks last night and gave the cats a little plate of them. The boys were very happy, but Spirit sniffed and moved away. Today my wrists hurt a lot and I couldn't figure out why, but now that I've just finished cooking the turkey breast and have it resting, I figure it must have been carving. Fortunately, carving the breast is a lot easier than carving drumsticks. If Spirit doesn't like turkey breast, I'll have to buy some small amounts of chicken and roast beef cold cuts and see how it goes. I originally suggested cheese to the vet, but she said too much fat, so if Spirit won't eat meat this way, I'll have to call the vet and get a prescription for high-protein dry food.

Eliza refuses people food of any kind, even fresh fish. She's a very fussy cat. Mina, I swear, would eat the furniture if I let her and she's always trying to sneak food off of our plates.

Happy Thannksgiving.

Thanks! Spirit didn't like the turkey breast, either, and the boys were not quite as fond of it as the drumsticks, so I packed it for my one-day protein and put it in the freezer. It turns out that microwaving your turkey breast does nothing for the skin (which I shouldn't eat anyway), but produces really moist flavorful meat.
