Episode 21 Danielle and Elizabeth getting caught up on all things cats and daily life.
In case you hadn't noticed, Danielle and Elizabeth love cats! Danielle lives with 4 cats and Elizabeth with 3 (there are a couple of husbands in there too, who have learned to deal with it.) Elizabeth started with an update on Max, who she got as a kitten and who was plagued by itchiness, so much so that he scratched all of the fur off of his face, throat, and ears. Elizabeth took him to four different vets and many vet visits before finding a treatment that worked. She and Danielle started the podcast to help others in this situation.
What finally worked for Max was Zyrtec plus anti-itch meds. Right now he's taking Zyrtec daily and being weaned off of a steroid while taking another medication for skin allergies. He's a little plump from the steroid but hopefully exercise will burn that off! He has turned into a bit of a holy terror, he's still very young and energetic.
It was Danielle's birthday on May 4th, her cat Tony did a special hat trick for her!
The discussion turned to indoor and outdoor cats, the risks and the rewards for the cats.
Elizabeth talked about how Max wakes her up, he's training her to be on his schedule using a very effective method...groan.
Danielle talked about Tony getting unhappy and causes of that. Cats can be very particular!
Elizabeth talked about how her cat Mercutio (Cushi) is sneezing and congested, and the vet not only prescribed meds but also recommended that she switch the cat litter to unscented litter, as cats' sense of smell is highly developed.
Elizabeth talked about the radio show she co-hosts with her husband Richard called Passage to Profit that they record in the iHeart studios in Manhattan. Richard was ill so she had to go by herself this week and she got stranded in NY for hours because the trains quit running. Of course the station is right by Macy's, so she found good use for the time. There's a silver lining to every cloud.
Danielle talked about NY some, then about cats in general, and how Jared Leto showed up in a cat costume at the Met Gala. A character after their own hearts...
And of course Tommy's Cat Rescue came up!
The conversation went on, if you ever have a question for Danielle or Elizabeth they'll be happy to answer it. They love cats and people, so question away!
Of course we want to hear from you, we love chatting with pet parents, the more cat stories the better! We dare you to top Danielle and Elizabeth with stories about weird cat behavior! We think we've seen it all, but maybe not...
