I have a food...

I have a food emergency, i was ill and the kids were feeding my cats, they didn't tell me we were almost out of food and now i have none for them and to top it all off i cant get out to get any. is there anything i can feed them from my food temporarily that wont do damage?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name and age?

One is ian and the other is fluffy. fluffy is female and both are fixed. both are also about ten years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

The male cats name is ***** ***** female cats name is fluffy.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ian?

As i said, both cats are fixed.

i do have a microwave. i was wondering if they would be able to subsist very temporarily on any of their treats.

Better to defrost some meat for them

Then cook it

They can last on that for a long time :)

Okay?

Canned tuna very good also! ;)
