OK, my mom is pretty sold on the health benefits of getting rid of "kitty crack" for me, Shadrach. But, she wants some help on how to break my "addiction" to the stuff! A bit of background:
I am part Maine Coon (Tuxedo coloration). I will be 7 years old in 2 weeks, am 36" nose to tail tip and weigh 16 lbs 14 oz. I am a BIG cat - I look chubby, but not really FAT! Mom feeds me 1/4 of a can of canned food (Friskies Indoor and Friskies regular) twice a day and the "Kitty Crack Buffet" of Friskies Indoor Cat dry food during the rest of the day. Of course, I am spoiled to think that ANY time mom or dad goes into the kitchen I DEMAND to be fed some dry food - even if there is still some in my bowl. Mom doesn't put out a big bowl of the dry because I refuse to eat stale food! Mom does measure out what she puts out with a shot glass (whatever THAT is). I guess they give me 2 of those, maybe 3, per day.
So, I LIKE eating the canned food and could probably be persuaded to eat the raw food eventually. BUT... my mom really wants to get me off this dry yummy tasting, "any-time-I-want-it" food! So, how does she get rid of the dry "on demand" food without me driving them crazy. Well, mostly driving my dad crazy, because mom's actually pretty good at ignoring my demands when she is in the kitchen. Dad, however, is quite the pushover!!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
