Furry Little Cheater

Friday, March 25, 2011

This is a fun little tidbit (quite literally) for your day.

I keep my scale in the kitchen because it's the hardest and most even floor in my apartment (and quite the deterrent from another trip to the fridge at night since I literally have to step over my scale to get to the fridge). I also keep the cat food in the kitchen. My little boy (cat) likes to chase, pounce on, and kill his kibble before he eats it. I attribute it to the fact that he was born ferrel and is therefore predisposed to "wild like" activity. I adore it, it's so cute.

Anyway, I have learned before that a HUGE scale drop in the morning usually means that there's a trapped kibble under my scale. So when I stepped on this morning and saw 214.2 (only a pound away from my 100 pound loss) I thought there must be something up.

Sure enough, I picked up the scale and sitting directly under it was a pink, heart shaped, cat kibble.

Thanks buddy. I know you love me, but mommy's not cheating with your food, regardless of how lovingly it was delivered.

Tee hee.

*However - I AM down another pound today which officially puts me at having lost 30% of my starting weight! A whole 30% - YAHOO!!!

    He's just trying to help! Pat and I had to move our scale to the office, underneath a cabinet that sits about .5" above the floor - our little Shadow kept sitting on it in the bathroom, confusing the digital scale and throwing it off. Silly creatures! But what would life be like without them? emoticon

    Awww, he's a helper.

Mine gave me the shock of my life once. I was weighing myself on the Wii, and didn't realize the cat was resting his paws between my feet during the configuration part of it. When it did the actual weigh in, I was suddenly ten pounds lighter than I should have been. Nice to know we have their support!

  OH how I miss having a cat!! Even the "wild" ones love us and show us in such "kitty only ways". The last one that we ahd brought us a snack, a huge pigeon, and even a small cat fish from the creek on our property!

    Be glad it was kibble--my baby left me a dead mouse this morning! Hope you and your little boy have a great weekend!
