Feeder popped and Betty slept through it. She will wake at 4 pm and that feeder will be emptied. At least that’s what her pre-pred schedule was. She might have already woken and finished this. On a workday, she would enter the office licking her lips and simultaneously say I finished and that wasn’t enough. 🤦🏼‍♂️😽🍔🍕🍟🐷

Wow!! I love her huge "Bed"... looks comfy for both kitty and human cuddling!!
That’s my bed. But yes. She gets half of it. In exchange for not having to touch me while sleeping, she gets that half that has the soft blanket she loves to sleep on. I think it’s a very fair trade. She has her own inner code of conduct that I never taught her and this is one of her rules. Another that I may have indeed taught her is that if I’m laying on my back, I’m fair game for cuddles. If I’m on my side, she may grumble meow as she climbs over me. But she doesn’t insist upon the cuddles. In this way, she’s rather respectful of me when I’m sleeping. Or faking it on my way to sleeping.

My apartment is a one bedroom apartment with the one bedroom used as a dedicated office. So it’s more like a large studio with an office. I did this before the pandemic. When Covid hit, I was set. 😎👍

I have a tiny one bedroom apartment.. I do have a double sized bed in the bedroom. I wish Geoffrey was a lap cat--soigh, no way... I miss having a lap cat.. Artie was a major lap cat...and a tent cat...

I am a side sleeper.. As soon as I get into bed, Geoffrey quietly jumps on the bed, curling up in the crook of my extended arm---purring up a storm.. When he was not doing this--it was kind of hard to fall asleep.. As soon as I move my arm, he jumps down...

Now, he is back to cuddling.. Major step back towards normal...

If I wake up before the alarm goes off-- and send out clicking sounds; he will brrrrrump-- while jumping up on the bed, cuddling n purring with me.. until I move...

Betty looks like she's definitely livin' the life! She fits in really well with your schedule, daftcat75 daftcat75 , doesn't she?:hearthrob::zzzcat::hearthrob:
artiemom artiemom Cold(er) weather often brings cats closer. We can hope, anyway. I'm a side-sleeper, too, and Elvis will curl up next to me. I fold the duvet back on the side I'm not occupying and Elvis likes to use that softness as his bed. But in the morning he will curl up right beside me. I like to say I wouldn't need an alarm, because he seems to have one built in -- except that this morning I was 12 minutes late in getting up. ELVIS!

Betty left her first remainder in a long time at breakfast. Of a plated 34 grams, she left 14. But before I could get worried about it, she finished it during third sleep. Sometime between after (her) breakfast cuddles in bed, and when I wake up again for my breakfast, she made her way to the plate and finished that remainder. 😽🍕🍔🍟🐷👍

We’ll do the weigh-in in 90 minutes.

I forgot about her no good very bad week before the steroids and how she did indeed have weight to regain this week. And she did. Last week was 9.4. This week is 9.6. I will allow her slightly more this week. But she should also be coming off the mirtazapine and we will likely taper her pred the following week. So I’m not going to get too crazy putting extra food on her plate. But I do think we may have to revisit meal sizes and meal timings. Let’s see how the mirtz free week goes.

Not on IG but *starfish paws!* :hearthrob: :lovecat4: :hearthrob:
beans in the air like you just don’t care! 🐾😻

IG changed things. It used to be I could post a video as a post and those would be viewable here without an IG account. Now they are forcing video posts into Reels that don’t embed. Is this unviewable for a non-IG user?

I was able to view the vid but couldn't LIKE as I'm not a user.

Betty makes this big fuss starting at 10:00am that she's hungry and I need to serve lunch already. Often I'll give in around 11:45 ("close enough") Lunch is when she gets 1/16th teaspoon of Rx Clay to help against those unfriendly strains that keep showing up in her biome report. Well, that's enough. She takes one or two licks and decides that plate is poison. She goes up to "her bed" and takes a nap like she's going to call Child Services on me when she wakes--if she doesn't die of hunger in her sleep. When she wakes, she grooms herself, and then, "oh yeah! I'm still hungry." That's when she goes down and decides that plate is only a little bit poisoned. Sometimes she eats the whole thing at once. Sometimes, like today, she eats about half. I'm not worried. She has five more hours to decide she's okay with that poison. We go through this everyday last week since she started the steroids and the Rx Clay. She hasn't failed to turn in a clean plate yet.
