Graduation Day - Thankful Thursday





Hi Pals,

Whoopie - I've GRADUATED.     After almost 2 years, I have finally reached my goal weight of 12.0 pounds.  Actually my real goal was 11.75 (which I did reach), but then I developed an intolerance for the kibble on the diet food.   It was decided to take me off the diet food and put me on prescription diet duck - wet and kibble.   

M says I'm still going to have to be weighed at home once a week so we can keep a handle on the weight.   The vet and M don't want me to mushroom upwards again.  he he   

M and I are thankful to our vet, Dr. LaFond at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for suggesting I lose this weight to keep me a healthy kitty.   I am feeling great now - more active, and even play a bit more (although I've never been one to play a lot).   

We are also thankful that I was put on Hills Metabolic Weight Loss Solution while I was losing weight.  It was an easy diet to be on as all the food was measured every day for me and there was no question as to how much I was going to be fed.   (I am not being paid to mention their name in this blog - this is my own idea).

We are also thankful to @PepiSmartDog's human (Michele) for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop again this week.   Join us and met some new pals.

Concatulashuns, Mario! I think it do be harder fur kittehs to go on a diet than fur us dogs. I pawsonally has nefur been on a diet coz my mom, she do be measuring out efurry single kibble fur efurry single meal my whole life long. And when I get treats, she DEDUCTS that from my meals. Unless I go hiking, then I get extra. So there you has it. You now knows why I like hiking so much, BOL.
