The kitties are home, and thanks to their recent dental procedure, I crushed their oral care cat kibble (which is made with large bits so the cats will have to chew it), and added some water so it will soften.
Then, instead of two bowls of water, I gave them one bowl of water and one bowl of shaved ice (from the sno-cone maker). We discovered last summer that the cats like ice anyway, so it's only natural to give them lots of it while we wait for the stitches in their mouths to dissolve.
Maybe I should look into Cool Claws. It's ice cream made for cats. That should be nice for them to eat right about now, too.
Not that the cats are, you know, SPOILED or anything like that. These are medical necessities. Yeah, that's it. Necessities. That's the ticket. :)
P.S. Did I mention that the shaved ice was made with distilled water?
