"Lynn, I'm going to leave home."
Precious has been on a long journey with her weight.
She's going on 10 and she only ever gets 1/2 cup of
food a day from the beginning with us in 2013. But she
has steadily gained weight until she reached 17.2 lbs (7.8 k)
in Oct. 2019.
She has been on a canned food diet and she does not like
canned food and it does not like her. We had to wash bloomers
2 times a day for 6 months. And she gained weight.
Then I switched her to 1/4 cup dry and 1 tiny can of wet food.
Better for the tummy but she gained weight.
Then 3 years in a row she had 3 different Prescrption dry
cat foods that she liked, but she gained weight.
Finally in January 2020 I spent unhappy hours comparing
nutrition values of all kinds of dry food. I finally settled
on Purina One Indoor Maintenance because it was the one
dry food that had meat listed first, fair in protein and only 9%
fat content. And she likes it.
October 2019 17.2 pounds
October 2020 16.8 pounds
April 2021 16.3 pounds
However, on her annual vet visit a couple weeks ago,
the result in weight was not so good.
October 2022 16.6 pounds
The doctor, who is very nice and friendly, suggested I
CUT BACK her 1/2 cup a day of food! I simply can not
do that to Precious. He also suggested I place her food in
8 to 10 different hiding places upstairs and in the basement
to make her get more exercise. I'm thinking on that.
"I am never coming out of here. They took me back to the torture chamber.
First a vampire grabbed me by the throat and sucked out almost all my
blood through the jugular. Then they speared my hind leg with a
Moby Dick size harpoon and said that was for rabies. I don't want rabies!
And then they humiliated me by laying me on my back and shearing
me like a sheep, jabbing a Frankinstein size hypodermic needle into my
wee bladder. If they would have told me they wanted my pee, I'd have
peed all over their white frock coats at the start."
I'm whispering now, Precious has to get her teeth cleaned and
claws cut November 3. Don't tell her though.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit and a comment.
It is much appreciated.
