Hello everyone! I had a pretty good idea, or so I thought. But I haven’t been able to get the Dad to go along with it. I even tried talking Mom into it, but so far it’s a no go from that direction too.
I thought it would be a wonderful thing to do if we suspended this diet thing until after the holidays are over. My sisters agree with me, and Brian agrees too. I think maybe Dad and Mom are losing their hearing.
We’ve been transitioning to a wet food only diet and the dry food is few and far between, way too far. Okay, I’ve lost 4 ounces so far, so I am happy with that, but we miss that crunch a bunch. Dad says we just think we do. He’s right, we think we do so we must be right. Sisters Sascha, Dolly and Kit were really dry food junkies but they seem to be adapting pretty good. Oh, I’m adapting too, but with all that adapting you can sure work up an appetite. Even the treats went bye-bye, and now we get a little more wet food as a treat.
I will admit that I’m feeling some better with more wet food because it is pretty good. I just wish my brain would quit telling my tummy it’s hungry for the crunchy stuff. Oh well, I’m sure that day will come.
Have a fun Saturday everyone. I’m going to go see if I can find a take-out menu and phone something in. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
We think there is nothing better than canned foods, but we spse it depends on what ya need. TBT likes us eating our canned stuff cuz its nearly all meat AND there is water in it.
Gracie, we only get canned food here, and only very, very rarely crunchy treats! And mostly when we get treats, they are freeze dried chicken or liver (which, honestly we all love bunches!). We don’t know what we are missing with the dry food, and my human says it is going to stay that way!
Congratulations on going on all stinky stuff! YEYEYE! Momma says it’s the best move for a kitty’s health for sure! Hang in there – it’s going to get easier! Sister Lucky here was a BIG TIME kibble addict – she had NEVER eaten a bite of stinky stuff in her life! Imagine her shock when momma decided to transition her to Raw – whoa! She not only survived, but she is a big carnivore today – like a mini-lion! The trick is a schedule…… It;s hard to quit grazing on food all day long….. But once we get used to… Read more »
Poor Gracie, but it is so much better for you to eat the canned food. We love our crunchies too. We promise that you will feel so much better.
We need some purrs for poor Joe. It is a long story but he got all tangled up in some wire and is all cut up and the vet is on his way. The poor little donkey is in bad shape.
I kind of have a “half and half” diet. I’ve never been a HUGE fan of wet stuff but Mom gives it to me every day and usually I’ll eat about half of it. I don’t have a weight problem though – I lost a couple of pounds over the past year or so because of my thyroid issues. Mom is just happy that I EAT! HAHAHA
In Europe, there has recently been on the market a wet food that has some crunchy bits in it. Is it not available in the States? We could send you some to try if you like. You can read about it here: https://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/cats/canned_cat_food_pouches/felix/sensations/408808
that was really a good idea, Gracie, butt like always humans do not agree with our cool ideas. can you send me the number if you found a good take-out restaurant? I’m hungry too… like always. Have a super saturday!
My cats would love a wet food diet, but Mom won’t give them wet food…says it is too messy, smelly, and overall too difficult. I guess it is true what humans say…cat food is always better on the other side of the fence.
We only eat wet food because Mum likes us to have it as it has stopped us getting fur balls – even so we are still fussy and will only eat small cans , foils or sachets of chicken flavour and real chicken too. It keeps us “regular” apparently whatever regular is!! Mum likes it too as when she goes shopping it is it is much lighter for her to carry.

Hi Gracie! What is wrong with our parents? It seems like your daddy & mommy are just as dumb as mine! They are doing the same thing to me. They keep telling me that I am getting a big belly and that I need to loose weight. Really? LIke you I am perfect! I always ate mostly wet but I loved me some dry food snack. Now they are either not giving me any or giving me like 5 kernels… seriously? Do they think I can’t count? I want to revolt but I can’t do it alone. Can you please… Read more »
Gracie, I get all wet food during the day and I have some dry food left out over night. But I do like to have a few treats sprinkled on top of my wet food to get me going with it. I am pretty skinny.
Well it takes humans about 6 months for their brain to stop telling them that, still no fun though.
We do like our stinky goodness! Glad you guys are adjusting.
Sister Gracie, some kitties would love to be getting as much wet food as you are! 🙂
We do so hate the word DIET. And Moms and Dads are most unreasonable about sticking to the RULES, which is another word we don’t like.
Hope you had a good Christmas anyway. <3 us
I’m sure it will get easier with time ,I’m on a diet too as mum says I need to be trim if I want to keep being Speedy,xx Speedy
Sweetheart, all of you come on over and give Katie a talk about that! She could use the advice!
That must be tough, Gracie. I don’t think Carmine would mind if I took his kibble away, but I think Lita might have my head!
Gracie, mes LOVES my wet foods. mes loves it way more than dry. Me purrticularly loves it when Mommy puts extra warm water on it and mes slurps it up!
Don’t worry – yous will gets over the crunchie munchies soon.
Well, wet food all the time does sound pretty tasty Gracie.
I give canned food too, but I put a few crunchies on top.
Stinky goodness sounds divine!
We’re sure you will adapt very soon 🙂
Hope it makes you all feel good too !
Purrs Georgia and Julie,

Brulee is also a dry food junkie. She is slowly eating more of the wet food, but she prefers the dry, too.
how about some fresh mousies? combo of wet food and crunchies all in one convenient package. might be worth considering! hang in there, diets are never fun!
I have always liked canned food the best. Mum has started to leave a little bit of kibble down in the hope I might eat something. I don’t though. Maybe I could send it to you and pretend I have eaten it.
Hang in there, Gracie! with the exception of Minnie, we were tough converts from crunchie food to shtinky goodness. we hope it won’t be long before you wonder what the big deal was 🙂
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
Don’t worry Gracie – you’ll stop being hungry soon! Shyla was on a diet this fall, and now she’s back to normal rations. She’s a happy dog!
Gracie we are so glad that you have lost some weight, but do understand how you feel about being hungry! Hang in there sweetheart!

Y’know, Gracie, the mom is trying to get us off the crunchies too. We mostly get canned foods, but we have held tough and she still gives us a few crunchies. She’s such pushover.
We still miss the “crunchy food” too:(
Allie: I hear you sister! Diets during the holidays? WHAT?
I hear you Gracie. At the shelter, all I got fed was Iams kibble. Then when I came here, TW didn’t want to give me kibble. She says it’s not good for me and will make me fat and no one likes a fat broad. She should know. I get a little overnight cos TW says the wet food will spoil. I still prefer the kibble best. That hunger never goes away.
Gracie, our Giulietta needs to get on the crunchy-withdrawal diet, but Mom says now that efurryone is eating this CD/Stress food she doesn’t think it will happen. Good luck with your new regimen! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
