Owners Get Creative To Stop Their Chubby Cat Meatball, From Stealing Food
Meatball the chubby feline, has a love/hate relationship with food. Something we all may have...So what's the big problem exactly?
So what is it?
Well, Meatball loves food so much, he's willing to risk his own relationship with his own kitten children! How? By stealing their food!
Tsk, tsk, tsk
But, things weren't always this way. Back in his younger bachelor days, he and his partner Mochi were quite trim. That is until kittens Pepper and Nugget came into the picture.
How did it start?
When Pepper and Nugget were old enough to eat solid food, Meatball noticed their bowls, than saw his, then decided that as the elder and well father... he should get more.
So he started to steal from his children's bowls. (Obviously after devouring his bowl.) Meatball's owners started to suspect something when Meatball started to well... pile on the weight.
Like father like son
What's worse... Pepper started to follow his dad's lead!! We all look up to our parents, so when Pepper saw what his dad was doing, he did the same to Nugget. Leaving Nugget deprived of snacks :(
Luckily, their owners, Daphine and Koon Wah, noticed what was happening and sprung into action.
Koon was able to build little partitions to separate the cats during their mealtimes. This way all the cats aren't able to see what the other is getting. They also can't steal the others food.
Daphnie told The Dodo that Meatball and Pepper 'are still a little overweight', but clearly the cats are on track for a healthier, happier lifestyle.
