Starving. Fading away to a shadow. Thats what Licorice and Saffron would have me believe.
I supply food. It’s gobbled. I get glared at… it’s clearly not enough.
In an attempt to satisfy my own mind that the girls CANNOT be hungry, I bought some worming paste. I read the packet. Yes, enough for a 5kg cat. Umm… I bought 2 to start. I expected a syringe the size of an everyday biro. WRONG. Exelpet supplied one of those super-chunky biros – you know the kind that has 4 colours in one? Not only that, it was filled with considerably more paste than I had anticipated. I read the instructions. Squirt between back teeth. Some cats may salivate.
Licorice was first. Lucky Licorice. Crash tackle. Good grip. Squirt! Phew… that’s over with. WRONG! To my horror there was still at least half the tube left, if not more. Given she had managed to dribble some of it out of the right side of her mouth I tried again on the left.
Nope. Still had about half a tube. By this stage there was no way Licorice was going to let me have a third go, so I decided to give Saffron a go, leave it a bit and then give the two of them the other half each – LATER!
I squirted it in Saffron’s mouth and within seconds she had the most horrid drool coming out. At this point, I felt really awful for subjecting them to this and I gave up. (I did clean up Saffron’s froth first).
Needless to say I have not touched the second tube and have no intention of doing so.
