The Woes of A Dieting Cat
Poor Tabby! At her last checkup the vet said she has to lose three pounds gradually over the course of the next year or else she is at risk of diabetes and other serious health problems. He prescribed a special dry food for her with strict portion control and said no more of her favorite gravy lovers chicken or beef canned cat food and, even worse for Tabby, no more treats.
Tabby: "I dream of Oreos; those little square cheese crackers falling like manna from heaven onto the floor; bbq potato chips so tangy and crisp; Reese's peanut butter cups mini or large; soft chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies still warm from the oven; cups of hot cocoa or Jello pudding set down within reach of my eager pink tongue; kitty cat kibble in fun colors and shapes, not these new bland, boring brown pellets (I'm a cat not a rabbit!); Friskies Party Mix Wild West Crunch and Cheezy Craze cat treats; chocolate eggs filled with scrumptious goo made by Cadbury for Easter; brownies and cake frosted with fudge or vanilla buttercream icing; and the best kisses of all--those made by Hershey!"
Poor Tabby! I love my big, beautiful fur-baby and it hurts me to deny her.
