Yup, which I'll admit I did...then I moved in with my bf with my other cat(that he kept when he and I broke up and I moved out)...she was in fit shape again! When it was just him caring for her he had her on "timed" feedings...aka, she'd get half a cup before left for work, and half a cup when he got home....
So he's now in charge of feeding the cats....to work at getting Tiki to slim down...as the "Meow, mom I'm hungry" look makes me cave...lol...she give that pitiful meow and pout look and I'd feed her...now I just tell her "nope sorry,kris feeds you, not me"...and I walk away...much to her dismay(she'll sometimes follow, pawing at my legs.).
So guess I'll now be re evaluating cat food...sigh...and I just did that not long ago, when I ended up switching them to Taste of the wild...lol...I thought I had cats figured out, then concentrated on Thor(puppy)...finally got him figured out...and now I gotta concentrate on cats again.....does this ever end!!???lol
