Kitty Maintenance Records

In order to keep everything straight and remember when I did what on which kitty, I have to write it down on my calendar. I'm not always perfect, such as with their ear cleaning, since I pretty much do that regularly as needed, I definitely write down when I changed their litter box, when someone got a bath, when I started Reggie's inhaler (in order to know when to order the next one), when I started their new food (so I can tell the vet if it's working after a month), etc, etc...

PS: Reggie's inhaler is doing wonders for him. In the first three weeks he only had 6 minor attacks (that we heard anyways); he was having them pretty much daily before that...I read that it could take a couple of weeks for the inhaler to really start it's "magic", so we started the count over for another three weeks and will see what that shows us. I think he can sort of taste the inhaler because after I am done giving it to him, he always opens his mouth and smacks his mouth together and sticks his tongue out - sort of cute if you ask me.

Thank heavens that my human doesn't have to do that with us. She'd never do anything right if she had to keep track!

I like your organization and how well you care for your kitties! I keep a loose leaf binder when we have kittens, to record their weigh, progress, health issues each day. It's nice to refer too and see any patterns and also to know what I did when and what they did too.

Glad the inhaler is helping...love to see a video of that lip smacking...

Some days he's really good with the inhaler and will just sit/stand there and breath it in until I pull it away, and other times he's just not in the mood and will paw at it, but I can usually hold it over his muzzle long enough for a few deep breaths.

I will try and get a video of the whole process soon! That will take some coordination!
