I’m down to seventeen pounds! Seventeen pounds might sound heavy to you (well, honestly, it is above my ideal weight), but my top weight was twenty-two pounds, so the vet was most pleased that I’m down to seventeen pounds.
Here is a picture MomGoth drew of me when I heard the news.How did I do it? Well, I didn’t WANT to, I assure you! I liked it when Mom had food out for me all the time, and I could eat as much as I wanted. Now, she measures out one cup of diet food in the morning and puts it where I can’t get to it, and feeds me out of it a handful now and a handful then, and puts whatever is left at the end of the day down for me at night.
I’d rather eat a lot, but I do like being able to keep all my fur clean, and I like everybody praising me for being healthier.
And I like that picture MomGoth drew of me, especially the beautiful claws.
