She doted on me like a high-school crush. Then one day I noticed that she was real boney (she wasn't fat to begin with, but was certainly cushy), and the vet said she had lung and liver cancer. She died about two months later.
Pets, like all of us, are temporary. It's probably not the way we would prefer it.

I used to buy both dog and cat food, but the dogs would let the dog food rot if there was cat food available. The vet said it would not harm them, since they were outside dogs. Cat food is very high in fat content, so it's not good for dogs that get little exercise.
Recently, she took to disliking the cat food. I put out the usual amount, but she would not touch it unless really hungry. I purchased some dog food, and she seems to be happy again.
The cats are also eating less of the cat food. I have been buying the same brand for a long time. I am wondering if the formulation has changed. I will buy a different brand when I next buy cat food (we buy it in bulk, so it takes a while to deplete the stock). I will also keep buying dog food as long our dog will eat it.
I'm not sure why the sudden change in attitude toward the cat food, by both dogs and cats, unless there is something different about it. There is no advertising on the package announcing a 'new formula' or any such. It's curious.
