I am sooooo hungry

I guess the diet is going ok. Mom will try & weigh me again, but I am very squirmy, and I kind of flop like those toys with the elastic & you push the button & they collapse..(mom is dating herself!) She has a digital scale, but it is not so easy. I think she is going to try & find a used baby scale because she will have to keep strict tabs on Maizy & then I can get weighed better too. Anyways, I am always always hungry. To the point of sometimes it makes mom kind of looney. I only get 2 treats per day, and sometimes some catnip, but other than that she pretty much starves me. She says I am getting what I should,(it's a joke - I really am getting just what the vet says) but to me, it is like a sniff... and then I try & sneak anything that does not get finished in another bowl. When Nana's doggie was on a diet, she would get rice cakes to fill her up, and it helped, but that is not good for kitties at all even though I probably would eat it too! I get my portion spread out through 4 feedings, to try & help. Mom says she wishes there was something I could nibble that would help keep me feeling full. And of course all they show on tv are commercials for Cat Chow & Fancy Feast or Friskies all the delicious looking noms.. just when I am the hungriest - MOM TURN THE CHANNEL QUICK!!! Sigh what we won't do to stay svelte & muscley. Maybe it will help if I just stare at the refrigerator for a while.....

You know right that feeding grain free will help with this by giving you more protein to build that muscle. Low carbs are what you need to lose the weight. Also, we have a baby scale on our Helpful Products page that is not expensive, if you want to check that out. What is it you're eating? What kind of treats also? If you get freeze dried treats, you can eat more than just two a day. Maybe even up to 4 per day. It's just freeze dried meat and nothing else.
