Mancat Monday: The Case of the Disappearing Kibble

      39 Comments on Mancat Monday: The Case of the Disappearing Kibble

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
You know what? That explains a lot!  I was reading the comments many of you made on Gracie’s diet.  There were quite a few comments encouraging us to get away from the dry food.  Hey, we’ve always had dry food here.

But that really does explain a lot.  While I’ve not taken the time to count the pieces of kibble in the bowls, I can honestly say there is lots less now than there was last month. So, I asked Dad about it and he confirmed, yes, there is less dry food.  Actually the plan, says Dad, is to get us totally away from dry food.  Dad said he was doing is very slowly so we would be less likely to notice.  Ummmmm, Dad, we noticed.

Oh well, at least that explains where the kibble has gone.  I was about really to put out an alert for the missing food and now I know that wouldn’t have done any good at all.

Hey, don’t forget that Meow Like a Pirate Day is coming up on Saturday.  I still haven’t found my pirate hat, but I know it’s around here somewhere. Have a fun week everyone!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I don’t know if I have ever had kibble! That’s how rarely it ever shows up here. I get crunchy treat sometimes, but that is about it.

Good for Dad to get you off the kibble. I don’t think our Mom could do that here. She would like to though. Most of us are at good weights. So good luck to all of you. You have a great Day.

My mum got me and Eric off dried food several years ago when she put him on a diet. When I got ill I wouldn’t eat so she left kibble down for me in the hope I might pick at it. Now I prefer it even though I didn’t much like it when Eric was here.
Mum says it is not ideal, but she would rather I ate that than nothing. It is a good quality grain free and has additives to support the urinary tract.

We only give Lucy a handful of kibble twice a day (usually when we eat)

you have a super fair dad he told you what he will do… my mom is unfair at that front she halfed the pieces that it looks like more and she really thought I wouldn’t notice that…pffff

During the day we get Gourmet canned chicken or pouch food (in gravy). Our last meal of the day is chicken and rice in pouches from a supplier in London as it is gentle on our tummies and we don’t get Mum up in the night barfing!! We only get a few biscuits once a day.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

You can’t fool us, right Brian?

If Pat took the dry food away here, we’d riot, or starve, as we won’t eat anything else what so ever.

Good to know the mystery has been solved. I was thinking that maybe weasels had broken in and stolen it because you know, weasels are like that but it sounds like your home is weasel free. WHEW! Very happy to hear that.

We have always eaten a mixture of wet and dry food and find it works well for us.

Have a great week!

Haha – nothing gets by you Brian 😉 I doubt that Callie had any wet food before she came to live here. Now, she lets me know when it’s time for me to feed her wet noms all the time.

Brian, I am having the same problem here – my kibble portions keep getting smaller and smaller! I am not happy about it one bit. I LOVE my kibble. The Mom says she will never get rid of the kibble completely, but she does want me to stop gaining weight.

We hope you all transition to a wet-food-only diet well. And if you need some kibble, I can try and sneak you a little…

Purrs,
Milita

We are not dried food fans in our house. WE will eat a little of it but it’s only there as a midnight snack. Otherwise Mr Jinx would disappear and fade away from no food. RIght, well that’s what he says anyway.

I hope the transition will be successful! Good idea to do slowly…even though you already noticed, haha 🙂

I agree Brian, it’s discouraging when there aren’t many kibbles in the bowl. I get 1/4 cup of kibbles in the morning and the sound they make as they sprinkle into my ceramic bowl is heavenly. If I’ve eaten all of them, I get another partial scoop in the evening. I also enjoy my canned food twice daily, but it’s just not the same. A splat of food on the plate, a few seconds in the microwave, mush, mush, mush of the fork, and then it’s time to eat.

Hooray for your Dad. All I was fed at the shelter was kibble cos it’s so much cheaper for them to get so I prefer it. TW overrules me and I have it as maintenance. If TW sees I’m eating too much, she’ll take it away. Everything is measured out to and has to last a week. When TW stopped free-feeding Autumn kibble, Autumn went from her nickname Plumpy to a playful, lively kitty.

Emma initially did not like wet food; but now we’re giving them wet food a few times a week. She still sometimes would not touch the wet food.

After Tommie got kidney disease and we found out the importance of getting enough liquid in our diet, Mickey Mouser and Rufus are probably 80% wet foods – 20% grain free kibble. Our old vet used to say that dry food was good for teeth… I guess that was the old advise. I have to say that Mickey and Rufus are probably my most fit looking cats ever.
kisses to all the kitties at your house and a big hug to handsome Brian.

My kitties love wet food, but Mom hates the smell, so they only get dry.

We do enjoy our kibble but a little bit of canned food is nice too:)

LOL — our dry kibble is now behind closed doors since certain furls are not allowed to eat it – the process has been painful and we humans are now woken at 3 am by the ones who can eat it for us to open the bathroom door…UGH

unless we can steal some of Wriggley’s kibble, we don’t get any. we’re glad you solved your mystery, Brian. Sorry about the answer though, mol 🙂 your dad’s plan is the best and, as shtinky goodness fans, we think in the end you won’t miss your kibbles 🙂 enjoy your week!

Kicking the kibble habit is hard stuff, but it’s totally worth it! Even Ashton admits she feels better when she isn’t eating that stuff.

At least a mouse isn’t stealing your food. I hope you find that pirate hat- you will look cute in it .

As much as the mom has tried to get us off of dry food, we still hold out for it. Though we do get way less than we used to get.

We are fed a mixture of wet and dry food and that works for us beautifully! Good luck on reaching your goal 🙂

We have almost all wet food here, with kibbles as treats. One of our favrit things about wet foods is that it SMELLS so much better.

I sometimes go on a food strike with canned food. I did like the diet canned food, but I am down to goal weight now. So m took the kibble away from me. So I went on strike an won’t eat the canned.

We are trying to get our Samantha away from kibble now too. She can be very picky about canned food though, so she’s making it challenging. We probably won’t get her off it completely, but we’ve made some progress anyway!
