about grain-free kibble (cross-posted from Pets)

Do you feed your pets grain-free kibble?

I have a serious feeding problem in my house. Ten cats, and one is obese. We started her on a diet but the only way to do so is to feed the other kids the same. Just a few days later and we realize it's not working -- they're all hungry, not just O'Malley.

Someone suggested grain-free kibble as a way to get her to lose weight (because she compulsively eats kibble; that's why she's so big). And if we free-feed it the other kids won't be hungry.

Do you feed grain-free kibble? What is your pet's/pets' experience with it?

Thanks.

I'm fucked because I have no fucking short-term memory.

I was on Medifast but quit. Medifast automatically refills your order each month and, of course, debits your card/bank account.

Guess who just screwed herself out of 300 fucking dollars because she forgot to cancel?!!

How to get 30 women in the exact same spot within 15 seconds.

Hit a law firm building with lightning.

It hit the rail of a balcony about 100 feet from where I am sitting at my desk. All we assistants and attorneys on this floor (yep, all women, at least on this floor) flocked. Two unfortunate souls were talking in the conference room where the balcony is, and they screamed. Can't blame them.

I love thunderstorms -- to an extent . . .

question about feeding a pounce of cats

We have ten cats. One of them is obese, and the only way to get her to lose weight is to put everyone on the same diet. We used to free-feed kibble; that's why she got so fat: she was constantly at the bowl. But now we're feeding each a half-can of wet food in the morning and a half-can in the late afternoon. No kibble. No free-feeding.

Tomorrow we're going to be gone until well after dark. They'll get their morning feeding, of course. What do you think: should we put out kibble for the day, or just feed them late when we get home?

Thanks.

Nightmare. What does it mean?

A gigantic spider was chasing me across the lawn and I couldn’t get away. It was light brown and bigger than a football -- and long, spindly, crunchy legs to match. I was terrified. I would run backwards a few steps and it would advance, we’d do that dance again, I’d turn to run forward but it would run around me and cut me off. Then it jumped up on my shoulder and was battering me in the neck and face. I don’t remember being so scared in a dream for a long time.

Interpretations?

What's wrong with access to searching DU2?

I have tried for weeks to search DU2, and have received this message every time: "Error: Due to increases in traffic, advanced search is temporarily unavailable."

Why? Can we get it fixed, please?

Thanks.

Harms Man or Helms Man -- did you have a bakery truck in your neighborhood?

We had the Helms Man. He came around the neighborhood like the ice cream man. He had long, skinny, flat drawers in his truck and they held a magical thing: donuts! Donuts were always better from the Helms Man. I got a jelly donut.

I'm sure he carried bread and all sorts of things, but I only remember the donuts.

Did your neighborhood have a bakery truck?
