Today, mom and dad tortured me with a cage and a car ride and a sharp poke! Again!
I haven't been feeling well the last few days. I saw the vet last week and got a steroid shot. Today, I saw the vet again. The nice vet thinks I have herpes (or at least a bacterial infection). I got an antibiotic shot and another treatment to try. We'll see how it goes, I plan on being a pain in the royal princess about taking my medication 😹. But I was a very good girl for the vet and mom brought my brush to keep me happy. It's the little things in life. OH! And the food torture is working. I've lost 3 oz.

Miss Kirstie's diet officially starts today! She has been avoiding climbing the stairs to our second story, but these pounds aren't gonna shed themself, girlie!
This is Blackberry. The sweetest kitty I have ever known. I couldn’t fit him in his carrier yesterday for his yearly vet checkup so I just carried him like a baby. He just snuggled in and let everyone pet him. He didn’t fuss for any part of the checkup or make a peep for his shots. Several people commented on what a sweet boy he is and the vet said he was the most calm patient of the day. But my sweet guy needs to lose some weight or he will face some health issues down the road just like I will if I don’t get my act back together. Blackberry is now on a strict regulation of prescription diet kitty food. I feel like it would be unfair to put him on such a strict diet if I didn’t do it too. I don’t think I will go full Keto again but I am going to be doing lower carb Paleo and keeping a close watch on my calorie intake. I am going to enforce some more strict guidelines on junk food for the rest of my family as well. Wish us all luck!!!

Exactly a year ago Crookshanks had to be rushed to an emergency vet because his fatness caused a urinary blockage. But once he got home we put him on a diet and at his vet visit today it’s been confirmed he’s lost exactly NINE pounds in 12 months. Holy cow guys, I’m so proud. Starting was 24.6 and he’s now 15.6! #proudmom #catsofinstagram #crookshanks #fatcat #catdiet #mainecoon
My mom came over to our home this week, sees Gem, and says “Oh my, little kitty... you’ve gotten so fat!” 😂 Which is completely accurate, but Sean and I couldn’t figure out why! The other two kitties have maintained their normal weight, but Gem just keeps inflating like a little cat loaf... 🍞
So we decided to do an experiment: We put 3 bowls of wet food out for the 3 kitties, and watched them start to eat at the same time. Which would be great, if everyone also FINISHED at the same time...
It turns out Fry and Riley only lick or pick through their food for a minute or two, before deciding they are done for the time being. But Gem? Nah, she scarfs hers down, and then goes behind Fry and Riley after they walk away to *also* eat ALL of their food. 😑😂 Here we are, this entire time, thinking everyone finishes their food on their own. Nope! Fry and Riley had a little bit of help from our furry garbage disposal. 😂
Little Miss Fatters, no wonder you’ve been getting so round! You sneaky little thing... 😂
Any suggestions for two cats who like to eat in small portions, and one cat who likes to eat ALL the portions? 🤔 Also, Fry is in a weird “I only want to eat out of the palm of your hand like it’s treat time” phase, so... bonus challenge! 😂

Ultimamente sono incappata in persone convinte che i gatti potessero eliminare completamente la carne dalla loro dieta e che un’alimentazione a base di frutta e verdure potesse bastare. Trovo questo atteggiamento alla stregua di un vero e proprio maltrattamento animale.
I gatti sono carnivori stretti, punto. Non solo hanno bisogno di assumere vitamine e altri nutrienti esclusivamente dalla carne, ma il loro corpo non è in grado di metabolizzarne molti, come convertire il B-carotene in Vitamina A.
Qualsiasi sia il vostro credo quindi e le vostre scelte su cosa mangiare e cosa no, NON potete imporle al gatto.
Il vostro gatto deve assumere carne o rischierete di minare seriamente la sua salute.
I've recently stumble on people who believe that their cats could completely remove meat from their diet and that a fruit and vegetables diet could suffice.
These are animal abuse.
Cats are carnivores, period. Not only they need to take vitamins and other nutrients exclusively from meat, but their body is unable to convert nutrients such as B - carotene into usable Vitamina A.
Whatever your belief is and your choices on what to eat and what not, you cannot impose that on your cat.
Your cat must eat meat or his healt will rapidly decline.
Being a lovely boy. I am pleased to report that I am doing very well on my diet. Been to slimming world recently and have lost some weight around my belly and my chinny chin chin. Going back at the end of the month and will hopefully have lost some more now that I’m using my special timed feeder. Feeling good 😺
While we always have the autonomy to decide what we put into our own bodies, our pets rely entirely on us to make the right choice for them, each and every day ✔🐈🐕
It may be tempting to buy that big 50lb bag of Ol Roy for $30 instead of choosing that high quality 30lb bag of kibble for twice the cost, but have you ever thought about what makes up the cost of the food you are feeding? 🤔💭🥩
My philosophy has always been, at the end of the day, whatever you end up saving in a poor quality diet, you'll end up paying in vet services and medications 💲💱💸💰
So instead, wouldnt you rather just pay more upfront and cut down on all the lengthy vet visits and surgeries? 🏥 💉💊
One week into opening 🎉 and I can already tell what our crowd favorite is!! 🐔🐔🐔
Chicken Breast is a popular LEAN PROTEIN amongst athletes🏋️♂️🏋️♀️ and dieters 🏃♂️🏃♀️, prized for its ability to maintain muscle mass while encouraging a healthy metabolism
Well, the same goes for a cat or a dog that may need to lose a few pounds! 🐈🐕
If your pet is new to unprocessed🚫, fresh🍃, single ingredient treats🥩, chicken breasts works wonderfully as a "starter treat", especially for those with a more sensitive tummy
And finally, for those pets who have little to no teeth 😬, this pack is suitable for these extra special animals as well ❤❤
