Well, nothing works. Without starving Dahlia, we can't diet Dixie. That said, we continue to try. However, she was in shelters too long and too often (they both were) at too young an age. Even hte sight of another cat near the house can send her gobbling food to mak esure she gets her share, and if we don' have food down? She will *eat* shoestrings, cardboard, scratching post rope, anything she can tear wiht her teeth. Sooo... Fat from food or in surgery for eating something we missed. (Believe me, we have got everything as Dixie-proofed as possible, but she'll chew flipflops, too... I've even seen her go at tthe yoga mats. *sigh*)
Anyway... Yep. One fat cat. Vet is pondering this, b/c there's only so far we can go. At least we already had the electircal cords cat-proofed!
A random and petty woe, I know. It's just.. Y'know... All cat toys are things cats can safely eat, etc. Shoes are stashed to keep safe from Dixie's little scissor-jaws, etc. She's not nearly as clever as Dahlia, thank heavens, or she'd have gotten around half these safeguards, LOL! Dahlia is just plain *smart*. Y'know those treat toys? Takes her one go and she's bored and done. I swear she rolls her eyes at me!
OK, well, that's my day, other than I saw Dr. Thor Hammer Thumb and I made some very undignified squeaky noises when he finally got the scar tirssue and a joint to release each oher. Memo to all: This is what happens when injuries go untetnded for 6 months. You get scarring for life. Oh yippee.
Big puma power to all! Therapeutic purrs! THursday happies!
What basic thing(s) that most people seem to be able to do, are you unable to master (or even just get a rudimentary ability to do) no matter how much you practice?
Here's hoping there are no weird errors online or in life. And to keep it short b/c I only woke up at 9 AM after being up till 3 AM...GROUP HUG!
