Once you've got your routine down, you almost don't think about it anymore, either.
If I could have stopped that flaming idiot from letting her barn cats breed like rabbits and pass this and other things along, I would have, though. I wouldn't wish Montgomery's digestion on anyone.
Montgomery was born 20 March 2012. He eats extra lean ground chicken completed with Alnutrin and freeze-dried chicken liver, with hard-cooked egg. He gets two size zero capsules of Enzyme Diane's enzymes at each of his six meals, and one size four capsule of Tylan three times a day. He's a strong, fearless little Spitfire with a real Merlin engine.

Nope, not a damn thing.
