I’ll confess that big fat cats make me smile, but this article sickened me a little. God knows people have to struggle with weight, but why should pets? It’s not as if they have a bad day at work and then eat a bag of potato chips. They eat what they’re given and that’s it (well, except for when Duffer broke into his walker’s bag and ate an entire bagel…). My brother makes fun of me for worrying more about Duffer’s diet than my own, but I feel I owe it to him.
People love pets. In fact, I’ve gotten emails from readers scolding me because Samantha Kincaid is so irresponsible when it comes to poor little Vinnie. So how could anyone allow a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to eat “bread and butter, .. dried pigs’ ears, as well as chicken and dog food” so that “If he goes for a walk, he has to sit down half way through to have a rest”? Sad!
