Knuckles... Happy Weekend


Woooohoooo... Friday is here and I'm spending my time getting ready for the weekend. I don't know for sure what we're doing, but Bugsy and I will think of some way to keep things hopping over here.

We hear that it's still hot, hot, hot outside, but we do live in air conditioning, so that doesn't bother us much. Now, I want to ask you something.... How many of you have food in your dish all the time? We heard stories that in the old days, people used to leave a bowl of crunchies out for the kitties so they could graze when the mood hit them.

We think this is a good idea and are trying to convince HH to try it. She's afraid we won't self-regulate the amount of food we eat.

What do you think?

Have a great weekend everybody....

Knuckles, we never get food left in our dishes! If you figure out a way to get HH to do that, let us know...we wanna try it on our mom.

Have a great weekend!

I hate to tell you Knuckles that it really isn't a good idea for you to be able to eat whenever you want to eat. You will get as big as a horse. We eat quite often since we have our assistant trained but she gives us small portions. We wish we could just have food all the time. Wow that would be heaven.

We don't get food left down all the time - mostly because Hannah is really a little piggy at heart! Have a great weekend.

I used to have dry food out all the time to nibble on and I never overate. However, Audrey is totally unable to sefl-regulate, so now we have to have food at specific times.

Stay nice and cool in your airconditioning. We had open windows yesterday for the first time in weeks and weeks.

We always have food in our feeder. Our woofies do too and we've never been over eaters. Sometimes we kitties eat the woofie food too though!

Have a happy weekend boys! Hey, we have food out all the time (kibble), but it's that crazy weight management stuff!

Remington said...

Hhhmmmm....well at our house there is food in all of our bowls at all times....we seem to do okay with it. We just eat when we feel like it. Have a fun weekend, my friends!

Mom leaves dry food out for us all the time. We tend to graze. Eat a few pieces, go on our merry way and come back later for a few more pieces. None of us are overweight. We get fed an indoor cat healthy weight formula.

I have food on my plate all the time. Mama measures it when she puts it out-1 cup at a time. I nibble here and there, but it takes me more than a day to eat all my food. Treats, on the other hand...

Enjoy your weekend. I think you'll look great for what ever turns up!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Knuckles! what a good question!!
Mom here:
It depends on the cat. Our first cat would graze on his crunchies all day long. In the early years we could leave him alone over one night, come home to find crunchies still in his bowl. That being said, no matter how much is put down for the Diva she feels it is her duty to eat it all immediately. I keep telling here that her Dad and I don't like her Purina One!!
Madi Here:
Yes leave lots of crunchies out at all times.
Disregard anything you read above the Mom has been known to embellish a tad when it comes to my eating.
Mom here: LOL

We all have food in our bowls at all times so we can graze. Even our sisfur Sadie eats what's in her bowl only when she's hungry which may be once or twice a day. We just eat a little bit when the mood strikes us. We can't regulate ourselves with treats though!

Our mama has food for us all the time, but she's thinking about changing that after Buster is starting to get fluffier :)

I have regulated gushy food times, half a can of Blue Wilderness with chicken and sweet potato gravy and cranberries and brown rice in the morning and the other half at night. The bowl of crunchies is always there and I get some kibbles for a mid day snack!
Have a good weekend! puRR.

That would NEVER happen here - Binga thinks self-regulating is a four-letter word (did I mention she can't count?). Same with Boodie. If it were just me, there would be food out all the time, 'cause I don't eat enough.

Angel and Kirby said...

We have crunchies out all the time, but our vet wants Mom to stop that! She is not sure how!

GRAÇA said...

I've been going to invite me to know and be my friends if you want, I really like to have friends, now I am very sad because I lost my namogadinho with feline leukemia ... I keep waiting for your visit
Good weekend and the ronrons

Well the kitties that I live with & myself always have food in our bowls. We are allowed to eat as we please. Maybe your mom could just try it out & see how you do?

If our mom and dad left dry food out all the time, we would eat it all in one sitting, 'cause that's how we are! MOL - Sammy and Moosey

Mom leaves food for us on our plates and we have taken it upon ourselves to design our own eating schedules...
