Remember everything I went through trying to decide what how and when to feed my cats? Doing all that research on “what’s really in cat food”, reading ingredient labels, counting calories… I wrote several blogs about it.
I can live with our current routine but I have to monitor the eating b/c Simba will only ever eat about 1/3 his food then I have to cover it – or else Tigger will get it. A while later I can always coax Simba to eat some more.
The easiest way for me to deal with my own food “issues” was to eliminate them all completely while I did a 10-day detox cleanse of green-powder-shakes & pills. It gave me some time to start figuring out how to go about changing my diet.
Yesterday I finally cooked and ate a real meal.
I seriously did heap a whole plate full of this healthy meal. And then I ate less than a 1/4 of it before I was exhausted from chewing.
Then I literally had an image flash through my mind that I could just cover it and finish it later.
I Learned Nothing
And then I did it again.
Quinoa, chia seeds, almond, sunflower seeds, raw coconut, blueberries, 1/2 banana, plain nonfat yogurt bowl.
I did manage to eat the whole bowl but it took me 45 minutes. The one thing that I did not anticipate on my 10-day detox was that my stomach might actually shrink.
So now I know how Simba feels! How are you like your cat???
