Actually, the vet said this is normal. He said that we’re going to want what our humans eat, because it’s probably better than what we’re having anyway. This makes sense. Think about it: how often does your human eat seed or pellets? Mine don’t. And with all of those taste buds, you know what they’re having it bursting with flavor and joy.
The only thing is that I don’t appreciate this diet they’ve been on for the past year. Remember last May when I told you the parronts went on a high protein diet and exercise program? They’re still on it. In fact, I lost a couple of grams, because the goodies changed from French fries, potato chips, and cheese doodles to fruit, veggies, and low-fat Cheez-Its. But if you thought Chloe and I had an adjustment, you should have seen the feral cats in the woods when the leftovers changed a year ago. They were really confused by it! Oh, they didn’t leave, but they had an adjustment to make.
The parronts do occasionally take a diet break and bring us goodies. It’s not as often, so it’s more of a treasure. And I have to admit that I’m glad they’re taking care of themselves and are in better shape and health. That gives me and Chloe an extra sense of security, knowing they’re mindful of themselves and us, too. Plus, they have more energy to play with us, which is always great! And watching them work out is quite entertaining.
That’s all today. I hope you have a Happy Friday and a wonderful (long) weekend.
