I can't be a hard ass to my kitties

I can't be a hard ass to my kitties and deny them food. They go about crying and sounding so pathetic it just breaks my heart.

Guess this explains why I weigh as much as I do... can't deny myself food, either.

I'd never make it in the military! No discipline.

On one hand I understand the reasoning to lose weight, but with the other breath, I think, why deny pleasure for now when I could be gone in a minute? (eg another stroke,etc)

How many people on the Titanic denied themselves dessert only to die later that night?

No one else gives a rip, why should I?

And downward I spiral in my stinkin' thinkin'.

You might want to try getting one of those feeder balls where you put cat food inside and they have to roll it around to get the food out. The idea is that it not only gives them the sense of hunting for their dinner but it burns calories off as they do. I got one for my dog and it would take him an hour to get all the food out of it and he'd roll that thing all over the house over that hour. I finally had to take it away from him because it rolled under the davenport and he chewed the leg of the davenport trying to get at it. I had bought the smallest size feeder ball and I'll be replacing it with the larger size. They make them for both dogs and cats.

 

You can do this, Janice, for their health. Try not cutting them down all at once, phase them down over a week or two.

It's tuff holding out..hence we have "chubby"dogs..

One knows where the treats are, gets up on a chair, bangs the table with his paw and "talks" no how do you resist that???

I don't think it is food...I think it is "goodies & begging.

That's why we have animals so they can train us the way they want. LOL My dog won't come back in the front door without her little cheese puff treat. She's getting worse at sneaking out the minute it opens just so she can get a treat to come back in.
