So as of 4 days ago, I've moved all of them to a twice a day feeding schedule. No more feeding Sam 5 or 6 times a day! No more all you can eat buffet for the other 3 cats! No more getting up in the middle of the night to cater to them!
They each get a separate food bowl with a measured amount of food once in the morning and at night. So far, they're so discombobulated that they're eating practically nothing. Although for the first time yesterday morning every one of them showed up for breakfast and chowed down. I know it'll take a while for them to understand that this is how it's going to be from now on. They obviously preferred the old way of things.
And as for my Samsomnia, it's a million times worse right now. She spends hours trying to get me out of bed and I just have to push her away and roll over. Again. And again. And again. And again. I think you get the picture.
So for now, Sam's stats are...
- Starting Weight - 17.9 lbs
- Target Weight - less than 14 lbs
- Last Weigh-in - 17.7 lbs
- Current Weight - 18.1 lbs
- Net loss - Gained .4 lbs
