PhotoHunt: Lock - up the cat food

Oh dear, it's come to this. Trixie is on Science Diet DIET and Pyewacket the siamese and ol' Tigger are on the old Science Diet I'M FULL OF CALORIES.

The cat food, apart from the very expensive diet cereal, is now locked up. As Trixie isn't sure just which cupboard it's hidden in, she is taking turns pounding loudly on every cupboard she walks by. She knows there is also a good part of a sack stored in an esky, which she has taken to sitting on.

I had just bought the enormous sack of full calorie Science Diet cereal last week.

Anyone with one fat cat, and two thin ones, will know just how hard this is on both Trixie and me. Oh dear!

Hi Leslie, I love this post! Very creative take on this week's theme. Trixie is a cutie!

Have a great Friday!

Hahhaha! Funny take for this week's theme :P

Annie said...

I can relate to this. At one point, LuLu was on diet food and the kitten on high calorie food, and of course LuLu wanted the yummy kitten food. And the crazy kitten wanted the diet food - they drove me crazy! They eat the same food now, thanks goodness.

Excellent take on the theme (and Trixie is a beauty).

Poor dear I hope the diet works out. We can relate I have two thin cats, and one very chubby one. The big girl was the runt of her litter, so figure eh!

Happy photo hunting. I played too :)

Fantastic post Leslie. I need someone to lock up my food too, then maybe I would lose weight.

Happy weekend.

Oh, Leslie - I feel your pain! With 6 dogs and 1 cat, it's always something, isn't? Love the post - such a very different take on "lock" than mine - thank goodness! It's what makes the world go 'round.

I love this, Leslie! JJ's a fat cat, too, and I have to limit her dry food. But every night at 8:00, whether there's still food in her dish or not, she comes over to the couch, sits on the floor, stares at me, and reaches up to tap me on the knee. If that doesn't work, she comes up next to me, reaches out and taps the computer keys!

She's so chubby! *tickle... tickle Trixie*

I like the scrapbooking, I've been trying to learn this craft.

Lock up your cat food - A great take on the theme. Of course a well-trained cat would know not to - - - oops - well-trained cat is an oxymoron :lol:

Aileni said...

Our cat is just as likely to turn his nose upa at the food we offer - oh for a dog.

Enjoyed this post very much! Trixie seems like one determined but very lovable female!

Hootin' Anni said...

I know what this is like...our cat, Tahoe, is a jealous one and she tends to eat what Winston [the other cat] doesn't eat. Just to keep him from getting it later on....and she is well, let's say....FAT! What can I do...I still need to feed Winston too, right?




Here is mine...it's also a bit 'native american'!!

Poor Trixi. We have a pair of grandcats with the same problem. Murray is rotund & and Emily is a wisp. My daughter has to lock Murray in the bathroom with his bowl of diet food so Emily can eat her Fancy Feast with egg on top.

this is a funny take!

luna miranda said...

very cute take on the theme. love the photos.:D

marta said...

Funny! I love the story. We used to have two cats - sisters with a strong sibling rivalry. The one we still have used to eat most of the food and got a little heavy (sorry nothing like trixie!) After her sister died, she actually lost weight. We figured it had something to do with competition and stress.

Good luck on the cat dieting. Have a great weekend.

Bonggamom said...

haha, great story to go with the beautifully scrapbooked photos.

Anneke (Mudhooks) said...

We have a "heftycat" too. Luckily, he is too lazy (or is it stupid???) to do more than wander about letting us know we are "staving" him by not feeding him all day, every day...

The cat food is very safe standing in a VERY large bag on the floor beside where we feed him.

A very humorous take on this week's theme. Enjoyed the read.

I have one that needs c/d for bladder stones. One that needs k/d for kidney failure and the rest need regular. Of course the one that needs k/d won't eat it. So I give in and give her what she wants. She is so old and I figure she should be happy.

Mine is up here.

Cute photos! Very creative take on the theme this week :)

nancyhol said...

Poor Trixie! I bet she feels discriminated against.

We need photos of the thin cats. I haven't seen Pyewacket in a long time - I still have her kitten pose in front of a lace curtain up above my desk.
