Canned Food Is Dead

Nicole: Your person is worried that you don't eat enough. Is there anything you'd like to eat?

Cat: Seafood.  Nicole: Canned seafood?

Cat: That has been dead for too long. Nicole: Fresh seafood?

Cat: Yes. Fish, and especially shrimp. Owner: He loves shrimp! Cat: Don't take out the vein it's the most nutritious (sends me a visual of the dark strip that goes down the Shrimp's back). 

Owner: Oi, I take that out every time. 

The black line is actually not a vein but the digestive tract of a shrimp, the owner told me. No wonder her cat had asked for that yummy part to stay in place. Less work for the owner, more nutrition for the kitty ... happy ending!

Animals take care of themselves instinctively, but when a domestic animal can't be out hunting or catching his own food he needs someone who can voice his needs.

I love to tune in and express what your animal has to share.

An intuitive consultation is not a substitute for professional medical care and diagnosis or training. I can not give you a diagnosis and I can’t prescribe. If your animal is ill or injured, please seek the assistance of a qualified medical practitioner, ideally a holistic veterinarian – check or a qualified trainer.
