Max on... The Food Experiment
Bunny and I are reporting in... The Great Food Experiment started at the condo today...
When I surveyed all of you about whether you get a meal at a time or food down all the time, the majority said food down all the time. Well..... HH has decided to try the experiment of putting down a full dish and seeing if the boys will pace themselves.
She's not doing this blindly though. First, she weighed each of the boys, then she measured out the food. Then.... here's the exciting part.... she put it down. The boys looked at the bowl, back at HH and then at each other in confusion... They hadn't seen a full bowl of food since living here. It was as if they weren't sure whether the food was for them.
Finally, they decided to dig in. HH held her breath, but they did stop eating when they seemed to get full. Each returned to the dish to see if they were right that there was food leftover, but they walked away without eating the rest.
Paws are crossed that the boys will pace themselves, so they won't have to show so much attention to their food. We'll see how the experiment goes... and of course I'll report back to you.
Have a great weekend, everybody.
Yours in crunchies! (hee, hee)
