Whiskers on Wednesday
What says Halloween more than a black cat ruling the roost?
All three of our cats are on a diet, so they will not be trick or treating this year, Onyx has a problem with her knee cap slipping (I thought she had an inner ear infection she was sooooo clumsy). When I took her to the vet about how clumsy she was, the vet said she had to lose weight or her knee would give out totally (she weighed 14 pounds, nothing compared to Jack’s 22 pounds), so all three cats had to go on the diet (especially since Jack was the fattest and the laziest.) They have been complaining vociferously, letting us know that they are not getting enough to eat. The three cats now share a can of cat food every morning (mixed with chondroiton/glucosamine) and then they get 1 cup of dry food in the evening (so they let me sleep). The diet is working though, Jack, the fattest of the three of them has lost the most, and he now likes to play again. Onyx is still being pissy about it and has lost the least. Jill now looks great and does not need to lose any more, so I have to make sure she gets to eat first every morning or Onyx would eat it all and poor Jill would wither away. Why isn’t it as easy to put myself on a diet as it has been for the cats?
