The 5.5 oz Diet

5.5 ounces...
6 ounces...
5.5 ounces...
6 ounces!
The cat food we feed all the cats has changed their cans!  Went from 6 ounces, to 5.5 ounces.  We now have a mix of older 6 ounce cans and the newer 5.5 oz. ones.  I split one can of food in the AM for Chuck and Angel, and one can is split for Patty and Sweetie outside.  In the PM, it's the same thing.  But now, both sets of cats are on a diet!  One half an ounce less of food each day, unless I'm using an old 6 oz. can.  Oh the humanity...erm, it's a CAT-astrophy!  Poor Chuck KNOWS he's getting less, and he sings the song of his people whenever he can, especially when he's snooping 'round the kitchen.  So far, the hubby and I have not cracked under the strain, and woefully doled out MORE food.  All four cats are a bit rounder than they should (see Patty's photo below), so this new diet is a good thing...right?
Fatty Patty, for sure!
But he's so dang cute...
Happy Victoria Day to all Canadians!  I grew up watching professional hockey on Channel 9 Windsor (did you know Canada is actually SOUTH of Metro Detroit?), and will always be grateful for the kindness shown on 9/11 when Canada and Mexico took in airplane travelers who could not land in the U.S. of A.  Thank You!

  1. And I imagine the price remained the same!

  2. Hmmmm...probably a way for the manufacturer to charge the same for less!

  3. It's like the vanishing half gallon of ice cream! My mom *still* gripes about that.

  4. I recognized those cans right away. Prancie eats the venison one, I didn't even notice they had less. I did notice I have been going through the cans quicker though- thanks for figuring out that mystery for me :)

  5. Sings the song of his people.... that line cracks me up. Sounds like my goats. =-/

  6. It's happening in many places, they try to sell less with the same price. CAT-astrophy, for sure!

  7. Goodness, we just thought Patty was fluffalicious. What is the fat you speak of....that "diet" word sounds suspiciously like a cuss word to us.
    With confusion and a bit of righteous indignation,
    the kitty brats

  8. It was bound to happen...everything else has been downsized. It really gripes the human. She thinks plump kitties are pawsome, though :)

  11. Patty is "solid" so maybe a few less bites might be good for him. I'm getting a smaller portion of food too because mom is watching my figure. Too bad she doesn't practice what she preaches....she's trying to type this while eating a bowl of ice cream!
