Karen Jo: I know. I have been really busy and/or tired. I will try to do much better.
I didn't go to the vet's on Tuesday after all.
Karen Jo: It was beautiful Tuesday morning and I went for my mammogram (all normal) and walked home and enjoyed it very much. By the time I fixed and ate lunch, the wind had blown in some clouds and it got really nasty. I did manage to get to the vet's to pick up your medicine and weigh the stroller, but I didn't enjoy it at all. Thursday was pretty nice, though.
Off I went to the vet's on Thursday afternoon. I didn't enjoy it at all. I meowed all the way there and all the way home. I even tapped at the little window in the back with my paw to let Mom know that I wanted out of that contraption.
Karen Jo: I didn't much enjoy the results. You actually gained a pound. On the way home Tuesday, I picked up a new bag of healthy kitten kibble, confidant that you had lost weight and you had actually gained. I found it hard to believe. You are more active and jumping up on things again, which you weren't doing when you first gained the extra two pounds. I, and two of my friends, who also live with cats, think that you have converted some of the fat to muscle, which explains the gain, yet improved jumping ability. You get to keep the kitten kibble, but I am changing your other kibble to healthier versions, as you run out of what you have now. We will see what that does.
That healthy kitten kibble doesn't taste as good as the Kitten Chow.
Emma: I agree. We aren't eating as much of the new stuff.
Karen Jo: It's Now kitten kibble and it has no grains or gluten in it, so it's better for you. I think it's a good thing that you aren't eating as much of it. I am going to see it Now makes a kibble for overweight kitties and use that to replace your other dry food. You get to keep the Green Pea and Duck, though.
Big deal. Neither one of us eats much of the Green Pea and Duck. What if we don't like the food for overweight kitties?
Karen Jo: Then you won't eat much of it and maybe you will lose those pounds. If you do eat it, it's better for you than what you are eating now, so maybe you will lose weight. We all win, either way.
That doesn't sound like much of a win to me.
Emma: Not to me, either. I don't have to lose weight. Why do I have to suffer because Herman is a fatty?
Karen Jo: Because there is no place I could feed you that Herman couldn't get to, except the high window sill and I can't see the food staying there without getting knocked off and making a mess. I guess I should monitor your weight as well, to make sure that you don't start losing weight.
Can't we keep the Fancy Feast Filet Mignon dry food? You said that it doesn't have much bad stuff in it.
Karen Jo: No. I want the weight to come off. After you lose the three pounds that you need to lose, maybe you can have it back.
You are not only a bad blogger, you are getting mean.
Karen Jo: I am sad about that, too. I also want the windows open, but it is just too cold still.
