Tasty Thursday

This picture was taken a couple of years ago, but it shows all of the Four Crazy Cats enjoying some dinner. We used to free feed dry food, until Tanner chunked up to an unacceptable weight. Now Tanner gets rationed, and Smokey and Devon can eat upstairs in the skinny cat cage. Tanner's diet lifestyle change is going well. The last weight check showed him at 17.4 lbs. We would like to get down to at least 16 lbs, but 15 would be preferrable.
The boys also get canned food every evening with Lysine mixed in with it. Everyone enjoys canned food time and they usually start swarming when it's time for it to be served. This picture shows counterclockwise from Tanner, - Smokey, Mojo and Devon enjoying their nightly canned food treat.

  1. Mmm, yum!

    Tanner's a big boy, too. I can see why you no longer free-feed dry--I don't either.

    Chunky Derry is my kibble-head, so I've got the boys down to about 1/8 to 3/16 cup dry per day, the rest canned. But Derry has to be very hungry to touch wet food. Annie hardly ever touches dry, which might be why, in part, it's so hard to get and keep weight on her (since the canned is mostly water).

    I've been giving the crew lysine for a few years now too!

    There's nothing like feeding time at the zoo...MOL.

  11. You are all eating so nicely out of your separate dishes. At least you don't get a big lump of Eric eating your food.

  12. Way to go, Tanner! We have to separate our kitties at dinner time ... each seems more interested in the other's food than their own...
