Socks Saturday Sharing
The same person that fussed at Mommy because I am too skinny berated her because Scylla is obese. Yes we know she is overweight and we know all the problems associated with obesity in pets. That is why we are working with our vet to help her lose weight safely. Reducing an obese cats calories too drastically can lead to Hepatic lipidosis, known commonly as fatty liver, please if your cat needs to lose weight consult a veterinarian for the best way to go about it. Mommy blogged some about Scylla's weight here. We are feed separately now as I can not ever eat her food or have treats due to the y/d diet being used to control my thyroid. The only way the y/d diet will work is if I eat it exclusively. But honestly Scylla never stole my food, in fact I was the one stealing Scylla's food.
Whenever you see a pet that is too skinny or obese please get the facts before you start accusing people of abusing their pet. You have no idea of the pets past or any medical issues that may be contributing to their weight. And just like in people some pets are genetically disposed to be thin while others are disposed to be heavy.
We treasure all our friends and we realize that we can't agree with them all the time and that other peoples opinions and experiences may be different then ours and that is fine. We aren't upset with anyone and we hope no one is upset with us, but we hoped to make our sandbox a bit more pleasant for everyone.
