July's been crazy -- tons going on at work, tons going on at home -- so chances to take Toivo in to get weighed at the vet were few & far between. I finally got him in almost two months to the day after he started his cat diet...and (drumroll please) he's down three pounds! Now he weighs just a smidge over nineteen pounds, which is pretty awesome considering that he probably hasn't weighed less than twenty pounds since he was, like, a year old.
So (relatively) slender!
Alas, two days after that, we woke up to find this on the kitchen counter:
Mmm, forbidden donut.
The downside to Toivo losing weight and having more energy? He has more energy. And can jump up on the kitchen counter again. The evening before we found the donut massacre, he found his way to an unattended bowl of potato chips and had his way with those, too.
Fearing his willpower is waning, we decided it was time to call in the big guns.
Maybe Richard can keep him on the straight & narrow.
