nobody's perfect

As mentioned earlier, our glamour cat has been throwing up a lot. We tested for food allergies, then tried an antacid, then anti-vomiting. No change.

So, the vet and I agreed that we should try an automatic feeder. She urges us to get one with an augur mechanism, which slowly releases the food in a consistent manner. And then says one of her patients recommends this one:

Now, Richard and I love our little furball kitten. We spoil her like crazy and worry over her, but let me tell you, our little high-maintenance madam is not getting one of these $500 contraptions.
