It’s been so long since I logged in that I had to reset my password. Really? It’s been two months since I wrote a blog post?
I’ve had some down days, but I keep working with my therapist and turning off the news. And things are getting better.
But enough about me. I have a question about Yella Fella.
He continues on his diet, and is doing well. I upped his food to two cans of Fancy Feast per day and a few treats. I did this because he was always crying that he was hungry, even soon after he ate. It’s helped, but he still cries some for food.
For you who have helped a pet lose weight, is this what you’ve noticed in your cat or dog? I feel so guilty, like I’m starving him or something, but he’s not wasting away. He’s down to 17 pounds and I want him to not gain his weight back, which I fear he’d gladly do if given the chance. Just watching him eat treats can be scary: he gobbles his then tries to steal treats from the other cats. If there are none left, he sniffs the carpet for crumbs.
He’s become much more affectionate. Instead of hiding in his Tomcat Cave, he lies on the bed with me at night until I go to sleep. He asks me for petting in the mornings after breakfast. He plays a lot more, and when Hissy gets on his nerves, he lets him know. Yella’s coat is healthy and the dandruff has cleared up.
I’m saving money to take him to an eye vet. There’s one in Nashville and another in Birmingham. Maybe one of them can help with those knots on his eyelids.
My sweet baby boy.
