|Max: thoughts on portion control.|
Hungry.... Knuckles has been acting particularly hungry lately. You know that HH had experimented with self-monitored feedings... meaning the boys ate when they wanted and how much they wanted. She had hoped common sense would prevail. Alas! It did not.
Oh, Knuckles did well at the common sense of eating when hungry and finding something else to do when not hungry. Bugsy, however, made the most of the freedom at the food dish and just couldn't self-regulate.
So, to keep Bugsy from gaining too much, HH switched to feeding them according to portion sizes a coupla times a day.
Weight-wise, Knuckles is doing well.... and Bugsy is slowly losing the little that he gained.
The PROBLEM... Knuckles, as I said earlier, has been acting as if he's starving. It was confusing HH until day before yesterday. She walked back into where the boys eat and found Bugsy eating Knuckles' food.
|Yes, I am truly sorry I at Knuckles food.... "Sorry Knuckles!"|
HH can only guess that Bugsy has been quickly shoveling his own food into his cute little mouth and then moving on to Knuckles' dish. And, Knuckles, the accommodating brother, just politely moved aside and watched Bugsy chow down... No wonder Bugsy isn't losing as quickly as HH thought he should.
Now that she knows what's going on, HH will monitor their feeding time and make sure Bugsy sticks to his diet. So that's our update on the food situation over here. Problem Solved!
That said, it is indeed Tooona Tuesday. So, enjoy pals... Toona all arouind... in moderation, of course.
And remember.... Max loves ya!!!
