First, we’d like to thank everyone for all the love and support you gave Mom after our post last week (and the compassion for our situation). She is doing better.

We would also like to thank everyone for the unwavering support of our dislike of the lentil (That came pretty much from the feline population. There were a few humans who seem to enjoy eating them.)

We’re including this last one because the site says that cats love them. Mom hates pumpkin, so we’ve never tried it.
