We are working on shedding a few lbs. off of her.  It is harder as they age (as with humans).

Tell me about it :rolleyes:

Ideal pug weight is around 18 lbs, she was 21.4 last time we checked, so we have a goal.  I will not speak to my personal stats that have changed in lockdown.

Ha ha! I don't need your stats, Judgie.  I was just agreeing with you :lol:

I did a Joe Wicks (not Andrew Wicks) workout this morning.  Desperate times!

I believe that the Andrew version involves pint curls and a sofa.

Since introducing rice into Oscar's diet he is the ideal weight. We met a friend of his, Louis, yesterday. It used to be hard to tell them apart, but he is much tubbier than Oscar now.

Jack the pug in my road has been on a diet, apparently he loves cucumber.

My spaniel loved carrots, as did my sister labs.

Tubby - i mean Tibby leaves the 4 bits of carrot, 6 peas and 2 corn kernals on the side of the plate when i serve the meat & veg casserole flavour 

i think he needs to join this walking club

i desided i need to get my bike out of the garage but it has two flat tires and i have no idea how the compressor works

I've never understood the vegetable stew for cats. That's just for the owners. My first cat had it a few times. He licked the gravy off and pushed the veggies in a corner.

Tibby is offended on Ning's behalf :lol:

I have know a dog and a cat who were basically fed to death. Very sad. I've also known a few cats who were so obese they couldn't clean themselves after using the box. It's not pretty and it's very uncomfortable for the cats so tell Tibby to beware! Moderation is very important!

Good luck. One of my cats put on weight in midlife so I had to limit his food intake and then Hills changed their formula (apparently too many cats were having weight issues with the old) but his stomach had shrunk and he lost all kinds of weight. We couldn't get him to eat enough to stabilize him at a healthy weight.

Gary keeps an eye on Tibby's wasteline and that's one thing he looks out for

ive just not had a cat who has started off so hungry before

Tinky and Borris were/are snackers, happy so long as some biscuits were out

but Tibby will scoff the lot

i now give Borris her meat with her buscuits, up on a shelf where Tibby wont go

im hoping in time Tibby will forget what it was like to be starving and disparate 

i need urinary track health cat biscuits in low calorie

i think all the fancy flavours are for the human shopper

the worst thing is when they change the recepie 

Tinky would eat the odd pea

if i droped one on the floor id put it in his bowl and he'd eat one or two

Tibby particularly dislikes corn in things

ive read if they are off yheir food to try baby food but you guys must have tastier flavours of baby food than i have seen here

Apple and pumpkin is not going to get any cats attention !

We had a cat who had been rescued off the streets so was starving and eating basically compostable veggie matter that she could find in the trash. Our vet warned us that she would eat anything and everything she could find so we had to measure out her food and be right there while she was eating so she wouldn't try and eat the other cats food. We don't leave food out. It took last least 2-3 years before she realized she would always have enough food.

When they talk about baby food they mean chicken, lamb, or beef without any additives.

well poor Tibby isnt quite that bad. 2-3 years is also not too bad

i think he knows this is home and its his now and he does  sit back and lets Borris eat first because she is feisty 

but Tibby is just so vocal when he wants food

when Borris was off her food a while back i looked really hard at the flavours 

we took her to the vet when she turned her nose up at rotisserie chicken

Don't give in to him! A woman on the street behind us fed her cat every time he asked and he died between 2-3 weighing 32 pounds!! That's probably close to 20 pounds more than he should have weighed. His heart have out when she finally decided to take him to the vet.
