I know this board isn't about nonhuman animals, but there's no one else I think will "get" this! I have this one cat who has never cared for high places. We have tall condos and cat shelves the other 2 love, but we always assumed Lillian was a "bush-dweller" and prefered low spots. She looked terrified if we ever put her any higher than the couch, and would run away and hide for hours. She really seemed to be afraid of heights!

The cats went gluten-free because I was reacting to their food a week or two ago, and they've all become so playful and loving. My "grouchy old lady" (8 years old) hangs out with us and purrs a lot. And Lillian (about 3 years old) is now climbing all over the place with no fear! It's adorable.

I love that my cats are thriving just like I am on a gluten-free diet :)

glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.

borderline blood test, negative biopsy.

SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.

asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)

spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)

countless fractures and infections.

i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.

very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.

I know someone who had a young cat with all kinds of medical problems that resolved when she put the cat on gluten-free food. We have had discussions about this before, but cats weren't meant to eat much or any grain.

Glad the kitty can have some fun!

Love this! My cats are gluten free as well because I am also terrified of making myself sick (as well as them!). These babies are Grain Free and lovin' it!
