Rocky is a glutton. He loves him some food...constantly. I made the mistake of making sure there was always some kibble available for the boys. I didn't catch on that the only one getting the food was Rocky. I begin to notice my youngster getting a little pot belly on him. So I started paying a bit more attention to the amount of wet and dry food the boys were eating. Not only was Rocky gobbling his food, but he was knocking Alex off his bowl and taking his as well! So, I stopped leaving kibble out overnight and made sure I cut back on the amounts I was feeding Rocky boy.
I also want to upgrade the quality of kibble the boys are getting. They love Fancy Feast filet mignon and have rejected some very expensive brands such as Wellness, Blue Buffalo and a couple of other 18 dollar a bag overpriced premium foods. I really dislike paying nearly $20.00 for a bag of food that doesn't get eaten! Why don't these high priced "super premium" manufacturers offer small sample bags for a couple of bucks for us to try out? Anyway, I noticed Royal Canin had a sample box of three of their kibbles to try out for fussy felines for less than 4 bucks at PetSmart so I bought it, opened up the three bags and put out samples of each for the boys to pick from. They agreed their favorite was the so-called Savor pack. So maybe I have found some food that has meat as a first ingredient instead of Brewers Rice. It's still 18 bucks a bag, though *sigh*.
Well, getting back to the story, I left the open three bags up on the kitchen counter last night, just leaning against the back splash. When I got up this morning, I noticed there were only two bags. What the heck?
It took a long time to track down the missing food but it appears my little food demon stole the open bag off the counter, carried it down to the basement (Rocky loves to fetch and carry) and proceeded to bleed kibble out of the small open corner I had cut into the bag! What a little thief!
Yeah... and what a clever boy, also!

Very clever! You will never go hungry :)
Once,Macy stole a pierogi right off mom's plate when she wasn't lookin'. Hahahaa. He didn't get far because it was hot and mom was chasing him. That's what happened when mom picked up our kibble bowl. But kitties were getting fat and Misha got diabetes. So now we get wet food 2x a day.That keeps us full and has less starch in it.Then we get a little kibble at bedtime so mom can sleep :) And kibble for treats too!
Gotta love the kibbles :)
