Tubbo gets tubbier

It's monthly weigh-in time again at the kitten farm.

  • Emily: 7.0 pounds, same as last month.

  • Whitey: 13.5 pounds, up half a pound.

  • Billy: 16.0 pounds, up half a pound.

It's possible that Whitey and Billy gained in part because we were gone for a week and they weren't as active. Still, we've started setting a timer to pick up their food after 15-20 minutes. Those return visits to the buffet have got to stop...

  1. May I make a suggestion?
    It's probably not such a hot idea to take their food away after a period of time. All they're going to learn is how to eat faster in a shorter amount of time, which can lead to serious indegestion etc.
    To control my new cat's weight, I simply give her less food. When the bowl is empty, it's empty. I've also seen calory reduced food already, and food for less active cats, which might also be something to consider.
    Whee. This had been important enough for me to actually register a TypeKey profile! ;)
