Well I bet you were p.u.r.r.r.haps just a little surprised by today’s post title. P.u.r.r.r.haps not. I  hope you don’t expect a huge dissertation or anything.

I’ve recently learned it’s quite simple how to have a p.u.r.r.r.fectly well behaved cat.

Of course you are familiar with Darjeeling our feline mademoiselle. ‘Qui???’ ‘no???’

“I’m easy”….Darjeeling♡ and so you must know she is the smartest sweetest cat.

However, a few months back it was brought to my attention she had been putting on weight.

It must be all the easy coastal living.

So very consciously a behavior modification was put into action.

Administering smaller portions of food…

and making sure that she ate only her food.

At first she did not particularly enjoy this new gourmet regimen.

and… often meowed long and loud to let it be known.

like any loving form of self discipline to be effective… she it needed to be consistent.

As time passed…she realized that this was as good as it would get.

It appeared as if she became smarter more affectionate…and loving.

Because of her wonderful behavior I rewarded her with small treats.

Unbeknownst to me she also began working her new behavior on my husband.

Who also began rewarding her new behavior with small treats. (The trick here is working as a team) After months of her supposed diet I recently took her to the vet who announced to me that she actually GAINED weight.

Darjeeling smiled…

    Hi Jenny! Yes Darjeeling is quite a smarty cat. Amazing how the season swiftly changes. You felt the warmth this summer I’m sure. I hope that you had a wonderful time vacationing,
