Spud is a female Maine Coon cat, I met with her and her guardians Dora and Brendan O’Loan in May 2014. From a young age she was a feisty happy cat. When she was about two years old she started experiencing diarrhoea and was being sick. After some investigation, the Vet diagnosed Spud with an intestinal condition that needed surgery.
During our assessment Spud was quite thin and appeared in low spirits. Dora advised that she was mainly fed a dry food diet with occasional chicken. Spud lives indoors with some access to an outdoor pen. She stated that she had free run of their home and interacted well with the other cats in the household.
Dora enquired about dietary suggestions to build Spud’s strength and immunity. I recommended less dry food, more whole foods and increased hydration. Following the assessment, Spud and Dora engaged in a healing. Throughout the healing Spud purred and licked herself, afterwards she was very energetic and wanted something to eat.
I met up with Spud and Dora a few weeks ago, Spud was much brighter, had gained weight and was very chatty. Dora advised Spud was now much larger, so much so that people often mistake her for a male cat!
There’s been a few changes in the O’Loan household, meanwhile Spud continues to lead a happy healthy life.
