Gatsbi

Gatsbi had lost almost 3 lbs during her D-I-E-T when all of the regular food bowls were up on the counters and on the dining room table. Only her D-I-E-T food was left down on the floor where she could reach it. Gatsbi can't jump onto tables or counters because of her neurological condition. Well, Bow ended up not being able to jump onto tables or counters earlier this year so the regular foods came down and were left on the floor level so that Bow could reach them again. Well, now Gatsbi has regained her weight and is once more fairly immobile. Such is regular life in a household with 10 cats...

We were buying diet food for Sunny for a long time, but it didn't make a difference. He just eats too much. He's not eating as much during the day now, but saves his major chowing down for after we go to bed :-/

Have a great weekend :-)

It's hard with a multi-litty household. We know this for a fact!

Eric and Flynn said...

I know how you feel Gatsbi. I used to have diet crunchies before I had my purrskripshun crunchies and now all my weight has gone back on. It's not fair cuz Flynn eats twice as much as but he stays slim.

Lux said...

I guess that would be really difficult, to keep a cat from eating what's on the floor. I know I eat every opportunity I get (not often enough).

Life goes up and down in your household, doesn't it?

Pumpkin said...
