17 pounds, 15.5 ounces!!
I wonder if last week, the low amount of loss was due to him getting into the other food, or if maybe he needed to visit the litter box :) This week's jump was a bit large...
I will keep an eye on things and make sure he isn't losing too fast, but I am very pleased with his progress!
Things I am concerned about at the moment with Tanner:
1) He has a large (bigger than a half dollar) bald spot on the back of his neck. I don't know if his body is rebelling about the calorie restrictions and therefore losing hair, or if it is something else.
2) He also has two smaller bald spots on the top of his head...scratching too much? Allergic to the new food? Cat fight with Cousin Pirate?
3) Definitely is obsessed with eating again, and seems starved all the time. I would have thought as his weight reduced this would improve, but seems to be getting worse. Wonder if he is really hungry, or just needs something to obsess over? He is still taking his Prozac each night.
These are all things I will speak with the vet about, but wanted to get them down here as a reminder :) If the bald spots get larger or don't start regrowing hair this week, he'll be taking a trip to the vet.
Now that we have reached the 17's with weight, it's time for a new present for Tanner...what would you suggest?
