I'm more than a little sorry I changed the cat's kibble, he's been eating Merrick for years. It took a lot of trial and error and trying who knows how
many different brands of varying costs to find something that worked for him over his life. The kibble hunt is so frustrating, but it's gratifying
when you finally find the dry food that works for them. Our eldest late cat did best on Wysong in his old age. Our other late cat, a "problem" cat
with a very touchy, highly sensitive stomach did best on Science Diet her whole life. This ol' boy does best on Merrick, he never could tolerate
cheaper foods (always developed kidney & bladder issues -- infections & stones/crystals)
I thought it would be a good idea to switch him over to a proper senior formula, since he technically is one. I couldn't find the senior formula
Merrick makes anywhere around us, so I opted for Royal Canin's Aging formula.
Holy crap (pun intended) BIG mistake.
The litter box stiiiiiiinks to high hell when he goes. Not the medically alarming "OMG, what crawled up your ass, died and fermented for 20 years"
kind of awful, but you cat owners know what I mean -- the outright stinky bowel movements cats can churn out.
Sorry buddy, I know you really like this stuff, and it seems to be giving you an energy boost, too....But you're a whole bag in and it hasn't gotten
any less smelly yet. You're going back to the normal stuff until I can get some of the Merrick Senior.

You are a really good writer as I must emphasize again . You had me enthralled with your description of cleaning. There was a plot, a protagonist,
you, an antagonist, time and ignorance. Your acute perspective of the "crime scene" and your curios unraveling, leading to a solution. Even objective
Sorry I know you were writing about your day, I applaud your fervor, which I "envy". But you do write very well, that distracted me.
I have made a mental note of "The Swiffer Floor Duster Car Cloth" suggestion. Walls are a pain.
Lol, thanks, WiS. While I don't consider myself a particularly spiffy writer in the fiction sense, I can ramble on. I'm glad it gave you a few
moments' distraction in your day
