Not Belinda but FF Minced Beef and Sliced Beef are both low in phos. Mine 
preferred the Minced Beef.  Also rotating flavors is a good idea.  I have a 
selection of 6 flavors I use so they only get a repeat every 3 days.  
I didn't have to use the clothespins but have read where folks have used up to 
6.   Just depends on what your cats need.  As far as giving the fluids, I hang 
the bag from a hanger from the stair railing.  It is high enough for the fluids 
to flow but low enough so I can read the nos. on the bag.  Pequita lays on my 
lap for her fluids.  I've read where some have set up their fluids on a pulley 
system so they can raise and lower the bag.  Many hang the bag from a kitchen 
cabinet or shower curtain rod.  Just a matter of finding a method that works 
for you and your cat.

How many clothespins did you use? I tried 2.  Also you did say you were feeding 
him fancy feast?  What kind?

Yes I did that with Fred he would turn around and bite me, so we did 
the clothes pins. He didn't get all mellow and happy BUT he couldn't 
reach me to bite me so after using the clothes pins for a week or so he 
just gave up and decided to give in. Now I just go pick him up and 
carry him to the couch, we do the fluids and the second I shut the 
roller off stopping the fluids he is gone, but he is good while we are 
doing them, just lays there. Every once in a while he'll still make a 
half hearted attempt to get up before we are done but all I do is put my 
hand on his chest and tell him not yet and he lays back down. Of course 
Fred has been getting daily fluids for almost 2 years now!!
