T.G.I.F. The Grub

      43 Comments on T.G.I.F. The Grub



Yes, yes, yes, we are more than ready for you dear Friday.  It’s been one of those short weeks that seem so long again, so we are just as ready as can be.  I hope all of you are ready for Friday too!

Maybe since it’s Friday we will have a special almost ready for the weekend meal.  Or at least some of us might.  As you may remember, Sister Gracie is on her quest to lose some weight like the Vet suggested.  We all know that losing the weight stuff is never easy, but the look on sweet Gracie’s face pretty much describes it.  That is actually my T.G.I. F. for today, The Grub Is Frugal…

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

As you might have guessed, Sister Gracie is not a big fan of portion control.  Well, she would be if she could control her own portions.  Wish her the best of luck everyone.

I hope you have have a most wonderful Friday and I invite you to join us tomorrow for Sister Saturday with Sascha.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Don’t mention portion control to the peeps she just might get it into her head that we need to do the same LOL NOT. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

It’s always good to be thankful for the grub! Gracie, Ashton feels for you. She had to lose weight, too, but she feels SO much better now that she did. You can do it, Gracie!

Portion control is a bad invention in any pet’s mind!

Oh Gracie, good luck with your portion control. I know it’s very hard!

Oh Gracie, I feel for you girl. I know just how you feel. Just be thankful your person hasn’t decided to stick your meager portions in a puzzle feeder so you has to work to eat.

Have you thought about trying the Metabolic Cat Food Hill’s Science Diet has it is very tasty and seems to be working for me. Albeit very slowly.

I hate portion control, too, Gracie. You should be a svelte kitty in no time 🙂

Poor Gracie. We feel for you, sweet girl. Moosey’s getting older, so he does not eat as much as he used to. But back in the day, we had to help him (and angel brother Sammy) with some of that portion control. Paws crossed and purrs of encouragement for you!

Oh Gracie you do not look pleased with that portion! You just keep at it girl and you’ll be looking fine in no time.

Gracie, I am a growing kitten – and even my human exercises portion control over me! So all of us are in the same boat.

Such a meager amount for Gracie – Mom measures our kibble too and we really wish we could hide her measuring cup:)

Happy weekend.

Good luck Gracie!! I know it isn’t easy, believe me! I’ve always been a bit “big-boned” and the vets are always trying to get me to lose weight. They sure know how to spoil the fun! hehe j/k Happy Friday to y’all xo

Actually, the piece of paper that Coco was playing with was a list of TV channels. There was no list in the room, so Ron made his own.

Sister Gracie, you’ll never lose weight on kibble. You need stinky goodness. Really. Unless you gonna try that Hill’s Metabolic stuff.

Nope she is not looking thrilled. CK has a good idea. The Hills does work. Good luck with Gracie!

Gracie, I’m sorry you have to have portion control imposed on you. It’s very depressing to see so few kibbles in the bowl. My food was being limited before I got sick but now I get to eat as much as I want. Hopefully your diet will help you get back to a healthy weight. Lots of playtime will help too. Good luck.

Good luck, Gracie! We know it’s not easy to diet, but necessary so you stay healthy! You look so much like our cat Bones, and she always tended to the overweight and hated dieting too. You can do it though!

Gracie is staring at that bowl and thinking…who ate the rest of my food? LOL
