    A day in the life of our cats
    which is technically not a single day because turns out it's difficult to film cats
    and also I wanted to add Haku cam
    which couldn't be filmed at the same time as normal Haku
    or you would see Haku with a gopro hanging from his harness
    but the base of the video is one day
    we just refilmed some parts where the footage sucked
    so when our curtains are opened five billion different ways throughout this video
    that is why

    Why do we put water in their bowls:
    To force them to drink more since cats (especially cats that eat dry food) tend to be dehydrated a lot and it can cause health issues like urine crystals and kidney stones. Haku has urine crystals once the first year we had him.
    Why don’t we just feed them wet food?
    When we initially got our cats we had a hard time finding food that Haku and Nagi would eat that didn’t also give them diarrhea. Poor Poki also is susceptible to bloody diarrhea and will leave blood spots all over the apartment if we’re not careful with what he eats. Our vet recommended this specific one (Prescription Diet... I believe Digestive Care) and now they all have A+ beautiful poops. We also often boil and finely chop chicken, and sprinkle that on their food. We’re open to possibly trying other types of food for them sometime, but we just want to be careful because their stomachs get upset easily and if Haku doesn’t like it he just won’t eat.
    But dry food is supposed to clean their teeth and now that you put water in it their teeth aren’t going to get clean:
    Dry food doesn’t really clean cat teeth very well, but we do have cat tooth brushes (silicon finger brushes) and cat toothpaste and we actually brush their teeth (although not every day).
    Why don’t you try water fountains for your cats:
    We’ve had them but he cats kept breaking them, and after a while no matter how much we cleaned them they’d start getting slimy and the cats wouldn’t drink from them anymore. I’m definitely willing to try again sometime if I figure out something different I can try to stop it from getting slimy! Also I always forgot to turn it off while filming and we’d have a hundred comments saying “THE WATER NOISE THO D:”
    Why don’t you guys sleep together:
    Wat. We do!! Bed sets are really common here in Japan, where you buy either one big bed frame or two that lock together, and then each partner gets their own mattress so they can have exactly the level of comfort they want. We have two semi-double mattresses because sleep is hella important and I want my damn room to stretch! I have foam pads on my side because Japanese mattresses are as soft as wooden planks, so my side ended up higher than Jun’s.
    yeh 💕 :D

      Firstly, Rachel and Jun provide so much environmental enrichment for their cats, more than single or 2-cat households get in 4000s.f. homes. This is very important to their physical and mental health. A stressed cat without active outlets gets inflammatory conditions easier, more susceptible to virla and bacterial infections, especially respiratory, urinary, and digestive.

      In veterinary medicine, we always advise owners to "float the kibble" for cats and dogs. It slows down pets prone to bolting their food down too fast, leading to regurgitation. It ensures moisture to digest their food better, as digestion pulls water actively and passively from surrounding tissues and cells. If a pet is prone to inhaling while eating, and aspiration of the water is a risk, we recommend allow the food to soak for 10 minutes, absorbing the water, then feed.

      The dry cat diet fed here closely resembles Hill's Prescription i/d we prescribe in the States, for inflammatory GI conditions. Many cats and dogs fare well on this diet long term. Many with chronic disease, such as pancreatitis, hemhorragic gastroenteritis, lymphangectasia, IBD, intestinal lymphoma, and more are on this diet their whole lives, and live a longer, healthier life, with much less symptoms, in result. When they veer from the GI diet, symptoms re-emerge immediately. Symptoms that are a poor quality of life, increase stress and pain, which feedbacks to worsen the chornic disease. This diet is perfect for these 3 kitties with the history you've described. Many cats don't physiologically tolerate canned diet. Many cats don't prefer it, will refuse it, no matter the texture, their hunger, or competition with other cats nearby.

      Your beds look super comfy. My own and fosters would be all over those, both sides, as some prefer harder, some softer. Some prefer on people only, no beds, no floors, no hammocks.

      I clean the fountains in our clinic and shelter cat rooms twice weekly, removing hair from the motor's fan, scrubbing the slimey surfaces with course salt and vinegar. If they drink plenty from standing bowls, great. If only fountains are available, which they don't drink from anymore, not great. I have many feline patients that will only drink from a dripping faucet, or their urine becomes hyperconcentrated with inadequate thirst, and they formulate urethral plugs of tissue, cells, blood, and crystals. A common emergency in male cats, urethral obstruction leads to accumulation of toxins in the blood and kidneys, normally filtered in urine, for which we prevent with active play, more water and litterbox options, Feliway diffusers, urinary diet, and anxiolytic medications.

      Poki may benefit from eating his food in puzzle toys made by Kong, Fundamentally Feline, Petsafe, etc. But, then his kibble can't be floated to increase thirst. Hills and Royal Canin also make prescription GI diets that are wet or soft. But, if your boys are as sensitive to change as you've stated, even a GI diet change may cause inflammation and trigger symptoms. Do what works for your family. The veterinary mantra for feeding, sleeping, training, traveling. Not all families are the same.

      Nagi, Poki, and Haku are very well managed and provided for, with aware caretakers that keep their mental and physical health balanced. Everyone can be "an expert" because they are owned by a few cats. Way to take it all with a grain of salt and kind, patient understanding, Rachel and Jun. Wish you the best, in all things.

      Rachel and Jun my cat had urine crystals and was in the vet for three days. I had lost a cat three years earlier and didn't get to say goodbye, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to say goodbye to my precious kitty. He's ok now though! Alive and well

      You can try putting an old quarter (as in a copper coin) in the water fountain. It's supposed to help with the slimeyness

    Poki is possibly a domestic cat..abandoned, or maybe born and left. But..it is possibly a domestic cat race, as it sounds like the cats I have here.

    I don't know many other people with cats so it's good to see my cat isn't the only one constantly getting into trouble!! (My cat used to be exactly like Poki, he's mellowed out a little but still a handful!)

  • Tiana Perez

    Poki is reminds me of my Devlin! Except, my Devlin paws me awake, and then bites my ankles until I feed him. I keep a bowl of his food out all day because he only eats a little bit at a time, (unless it's wet food strips, he goes crazy for that and the gravy) so whenever he eats all of it, I refuse to wake up earlier to just feed him, so he started pawing at my face, It was cute at first but not anymore. 😠

    Do you ever let your cat outside ?
    - I have one cat and she’s 7 months old, we left her outside for around 3 hours everyday ever since she was 6 weeks old x
    Two weeks ago she went missing so I cried everyday until someone called from the flyers a week later saying they found her.
    I’m trying to keep her inside only but she just wants to go outside, she’s always meowing at the door or at the window. We let her outside for around 20 minutes everyday but I want her to be an indoor cat only
    Any advice? X
