Song of the Week

When I mean cooking, I'm talking about steaming some poultry. Not because I really want to, but because it's a solution that's working so far. I use to add chicken, beef or some liver to her food as a supplement, when she was a kitten. She was a mess and needed the pure protein. So I guess I'm back to that. Not that I feed her crappy food, but it is processed none the less.

She does seem to be more satiated then before and isn't constantly begging and leading me to her food station. She wasn't losing weight, and she is at the top of what her weight should be, so adding more food was not a solution. I did that over the summer and she started bulking up around the belly. Not good. I can still pinch a little (gently of course) on her sides, but not as much as earlier last year.

The vet said the amount she's eating is good, so who knows. But really does she look like she's starving? I don't think so. Mind you most of that bulk you see, is her Winter coat.

Below, her breakfast and supper, combo. 1 tbsp dry; 1/2 tbp poached chicken; 1/2 tbsp canned. Then mixed with water, as directed by her vet. 1 tbsp of dry halfway through the day. I don't leave a bowl of dry for her to graze throughout the day, because she'll never truly be hungry and she will, and has in the past, refuse to eat any wet food.

Do you have any feeding tips that you use or have heard of when feeding a seemingly always hungry, cat or dog?

On a Saturday. Issues with Windows 8, that I'm fighting to figure out. I'll eventually understand it, but the process is a lesson in patience and keeping my cool.

I just found out that my school program doesn't start until the 13th, so woo-woo for me. This gives me time to get back to a decent bedtime. Over the Christmas holidays, I've been seeing too many early am sleeps. I can also use this extra time to try and get more familiar with the Adobe programs that I'll be using in my program. Some of those will be challenging, I can tell already. But I'm trying not to stress because as long as I go to class, study, ask questions and repeat, I will be just fine.

I will also be doing some serious reading. Stopped at the library Friday morning to exchange some books. The weather is icy cold. The wind chill is making Winter, not so pleasant. The wool socks just did not cut it, and that was only a short walk from the car to the library. At least the sun is shining and we didn't get that much snow, compared to many other places around the country.

Books I hope to read before I start classes.
