|Yea!!! HH stopped Bugsy from eating my food.|
Good morning pals...
Today, I thought I'd give you a little update on cat nutrition over here.
I'm happy to report that Bugsy and Knuckles are doing a little better in that department. A few days ago, I told you that Bugsy, sly boy that he is, was stealing part of Knuckles' food at almost every meal. Consequently, Knuckles was getting trimmer and Bugsy was... (I hate pointing a paw at him and saying he was getting fatter - such an ugly term) ... well, let's just say, Bugsy was not losing any weight and was working earnestly to collect more fat cells. YIKES!
For now, HH has solved the problem by putting a chair between their dishes and policing the proceedings. In the short term, this is working. Now when Bugsy lunges for Knuckles' food, HH scoops him up and doesn't let him down until Knuckles is finished. I can't say Bugsy is too happy with this interference, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Right?
HH knows, however, that in the long run, she needs to study up on cat nutrition and make sure the boys have the best diet for their needs. That would be one that will keep them healthy and full.
Already she has learned that protein is one of the keys to feeling full. She learned that from her own dietician who tells her to eat an egg before exercising... yuck! Anyhooooo... HH has also learned that a good feeding schedule is important to cat nutrition too. So those are the things that we are going to work on next.
|Shhhhh... please send treats!!|
Have a great day and if you're skinny, eat a treat for Bugsy... such a cute boy.
