Coconut Oil Dreams

So the question was, were we going to be able to get Star to eat any of the coconut oil, aside from what she licks off of her back. First thing this morning I opened the jar to scrape some out to put on her back and Star was right there. I decided to give her a sniff and see what she would do.

I think these pictures give the answer better than I could..



*sniff* Oh heavenly scent...
 

 

Oh yum! *lick lick lick* This is mine, right?
 
 

Mmmm *lickity lickity lickity* You can put more on my back if you want.
 



She was so involved that I did put some on her back while she was face down in the jar. Aside from having to move her face to get some out, she hardly budged while I soothed it on her spot. When I finally decided to take the jar from her, figuring she'd had enough, she went across the room and licked everything off her back.

Tell me I'm done will you? Well, there's more than one way to get more of that stuff. Ha!



Let me tell you, this has worked SO well SO fast! All of the red or scabby looking spots are GONE! The skin is so very soft, of course so is the itsy-bitsy fur that's growing back.
Coconut oil, who knew!

My human heard somewhere that coconut oil helped to prevent Alzheimer's, so she always has some on hand. It's good to know that it serves a REAL purpose!

Humans, sheesh!

Coconut oil, eh? That's good to remember. As for preventing Alzheimer's, do you inset the oil for that, or rub it in?

Glad that Star is starting to feel better and that she likes the coconut oil. Continued purrs to her for healing and feeling good. My Human started to give me and Neytiri coconut oil last week as we live in a very dry climate and our furs have gotten dry, it is very good stuff.
