My daughter is underweight for her age. She basically prefers to live off of yogurt (it must have splenda in it) and fresh fruit and veggies. I've found a few fat building foods she'll eat, but it's been a struggle. Anyway, today I was putting gifts into boxes when I heard the kitten make an odd noise. Upon further inspection I found Mandolin and the dog I dogsit sitting by the kitten's food dishes and drinking his water from his dish and eating his food. Apparently Mandolin loves and i mean loves kitten food that's been soaked in a bowl of water. Her little cheeks were chipmunk fat they were so full. My first reaction was to vomit, but I held off and went with my second reaction, which was a whole lot of corner standing time with some ranting about how nasty eating cat food is. I called her daddy to tell him about it and his response was: "Well, it's got fat and protein, so she'll gain weight." She hasn't put anyhting gross in her mouth in almost a year, she doesn't even eat off the floor/ground. I pray nothing ever happens to me, or Mandol will turn in to a wild little hellcat with no social skills like Nell: "tay in the wind."
