My stray, Violet, is finally inside and is doing great! I do have a couple questions, however.
I haven't taken her to the vet yet, since I just brought her in yesterday after a terrifying pine tree incident. This being said, I'm not quite sure how old she is. Judging by her size, she's no more than a year old. She was also very thin. I did, however give her a flea treatment.
Anyway, my first question is about food choice. When she was outside, and would stop by morning and night for food, I just had a can or two of Blue Buffalo Basics on hand. I bought the same kind and flavor as the can, just in dry form. I thought maybe there was some sort of process to start them on real food, but she pounds it down and seems to be doing fine with it. Is that okay?
Secondly, she's always doing this thing where she kneads on sheets and blankets and sucks on them. She also refuses water, and will only drink milk, which I'm definitely not comfortable with because I've heard it's bad for them. I'm assuming that this has something to do with how and when she was weaned. Is there anything I can do to help, and to get her to drink water?
