Nicholas. About to do crimes - or help me make something in the kitchen.
His biggest problem right now is that he is still on a reduction plan. Our goal is to get him down to 19 pounds. You heard me. DOWN to 19 pounds. How big is he? Big. Real big. But slowly he's been inching down the ounces and I think we age getting close to his goal weight. The Good Vet told me that getting cats to lose weight is almost impossible. That's right, Doc, tell me something I can't do... it guarantees that I will do it.
Nicholas can stand on his back legs and pull everything off the counters. Thanks, Nicholas.
So we've been working hard. The next time we take Nicholas to the vet I'm positive those scales will say 19 pounds. I know this because Nicholas has spent the last several days up on the kitchen counters. He hasn't been up there in years. These were the days he could easily heft his big carcass up on the counters. But not since then. However this new found agility has become a problem.
Partners in crime. Little Mo is surprisingly gangsta.
This morning I heard odd noises. Then Kai started with her tattle tail bark... so I hurried out to see what was going on.
"What's going on!" I demanded.
Nothing but innocent looks.
Then I noticed one too many dogs in the dog area.
"NICHOLAS!" I shrieked in surprise.
Nicholas is not supposed to be in the dog area. He teases Kai and Zander and that could go bad. Up until now it hasn't been a worry because there was no way Fatty-Fat A-Lot could get up and over the gate.
What happens when dogs get canned food. This is too much pushing and shoving for cats.
Today was a changing day. I'm pretty sure Nicholas was in the big garbage can full of dog food. Due to starvation.
So while I'm pleased that our formerly fat cat, Nicholas, is slimming down fast..... this has resulted in a lot of unintended consequences.
This is not officially a Hard Day for Nicholas.... but if he keeps it up then it could be. Looks like I'm going to have to do some figuring to keep our Nicholas out of trouble.
Happy Saturday everyone!
