So much researching for this chronicle is exhausting

Are we again mentioning Brewer’s Yeast? Yes, Meow!

Brewer’s Yeast and Cats seems to be a regular combination that slinks into some of these chronicles! Here is one more tip from Your Natural Cat by Grace McHattie.

We are getting these tablets which are crushed and put into our fish and rice dinners. If we had the choice we would probably suggest catnip with all meals, and gourmet commercial food too but our advice is rarely taken! Since we can’t taste these tablets we are taking them in. The weakest among us, Mishti, who had terrifying red wounds all over her, is definitely benefitting from the new foods and this yeast. Because her fur is getting fluffier and healthier every day.
