Timmy is Thankful for Snacks

Hello friends. We want to say thanks so much for stopping by today. The lifeblood of a blog are its readers and we sure do love you all. Now let me talk about my Thankful this week, snacks.
I recently had something happen, we are still not sure exactly what, that really hit my appetite. Dad was on it and worked with me to get me eating, not with big meals, but with snacks. You see I have never been one to sit and gorge like some members of this home, rather I like to graze all day. With me now getting the fanciest of feasts that is hard as others suck up all that Dad puts down. Snacks are the answer. I come in and sit on the table with Toby and Dad gives me my snack. Today to start off I ate a quarter of a can and then through the morning I had another half. This afternoon I had a few licks but that is my normal for a total of just about a can overall before dinner. Tonight I will have have snacks as I sit on the couch with Dad for maybe another half can or so. Sometimes I gobble up a good bit while other times just a few licks but Dad is ready when I am, fending off those who would polish off my snacks in a flash. I feel much better now and hope they can figure out what is going on but Dad will continue serving me snacks for as long as is needed. Did you know Buddy Budd had snacks for two years? It is so nice to have my snacks and a Dad who loves me enough to give them to me. 

We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We hope you are thankful for something special this week too. See you soon!

Nellie was the Queen of snacks. We truly understand Timmy. You are a really lucky guy to have a Dad who understands and makes sure you get enough snacks. We continue the purrayers. We hope you all have a marvellously happy day!

"Whatever works" - that's our motto here too. Glad the snacking works - that's sort of what Mom is doing with me as I have NOT been happy being forced away from dry food to wet. I just have little bits at a time and Mom will feed me those little bits whenever I will have them. Good luck Timmy - your Dad will take care to see that you EAT when YOU want to eat!

Hugs, Teddy

Timmy having snacks with your dad is a wonderful way for some special time together. And you're getting lots of nourishment. That's very important and you must remember that when you're eating your snacking food. Maybe you're just following in the footsteps of Buddy Bud and have figured out that this is a good way for some special time together.

Timmy, snacks are great! Some kitties just prefer to graze and eating in smaller quantities can be easier on the tummy. Derry gets fed many times through the day now that the biped is working from home, because he'll throw up if he's too hungry and then eats too much. Even the biped prefers to graze, it's better for HER system! So whatever works for you is awesome, as long as you keep eating. Purrs from Derry! ♥

Timmy, you must have food in your belly to make it work!
The Hubby and I spend time every day, at every meal, keeping CB from pushing Manny off his bowl to finish it off.

Your dad is always looking for ways to improve his family's lives. I try the same with my Tucker, but I'm a bit hampered by having to be at work all day (what a waste of time that is, when I could be at home with my cats!) Tucker is a grazer, too, so I've taken to putting a bowl with some soft-food on the floor with the hard. I'm trying to cut back on his Mirtazapine, but I don't think skipping a day will work.

Timmy, your success is our success, so you keep eating and we'll keep following your progress.

I'm glad your human works with your snack schedule, Timmy. My human had to do that with Sparkle, so she knows how much work that can be.

Keep on keepin' on, both of you!
