I was this morning showing someone pictures of my cats - I do that from time to time, whether people want to see them or not - and came across a photograph of Josie from a year and a half ago. I was startled at the difference in her shape. She seems clearly to have lost weight and, though I knew this to be the case, seeing the comparison gave me a surprise.
I don’t believe there is anything wrong with Josie. When she went to the hospital for her dental procedure not so long ago, I had a blood panel performed on her, and she was declared healthy. And since the first image shows her at the beginning of April, 2015, and the second in September of 2016, I believe it is a satisfactory amount of time in which to lose a pound and a half. That is what my records show her weight-change to have been.
She eats well. Though she doesn’t eat as much as she once did - I could count on my Chubs to finish everyone else’s dinner, even before everyone else was finished it - that changed years ago when I started feeding what I think is better food. Eating a little less, and eating healthier are the causes of her new, slimmer appearance.
I will of course maintain a watch on her well-being. I have no choice; the slightest deviation from routine starts me worrying. It is automatic. But I think that Josie is simply shedding the poundage she should never have had. With the dangers of too much loss in mind, there may nevertheless come a day when my Chubs is no longer a chubs.
That looks like a good thing to us but it pays to watch everything it seems!ReplyDelete
Good for Josie! She looks terrific, so kudos to you for the changes that have enabled her to lose the weight!ReplyDelete
That would equal 15 pounds on us which would show, too. She looks very healthy now. :)ReplyDelete
Wow, Josie! Good for you! You look terrific! But now your Dad will have to find a new nickname for you. "Chubs" may not be appropriate too much longer.ReplyDelete
I am glad she had the blood panel so you know she is healthy. You can definitely tell by the before and after that she has lost weight.ReplyDelete
Josie looks fabulous. I admit I like a little plump belly on cats, and Annabelle has certainly obliged me, but I also understand that being lighter can be advantageous! Glad Josie is doing so well!ReplyDelete
She does look very healthy. Good to keep a watch - I too, worry at any change - but Josie does look well. And. happy in her photo.ReplyDelete
good job Josie!!!ReplyDelete
