Cats and their love for food are no secret. They can be real foodies, and sometimes, it takes a little guidance to keep their eating habits in check.
This is the story of Meatball, a cat dad who had to relearn his table manners once his kittens started on solid food.
Meatball, along with his “wife” Mochi and their adorable kittens, shares a cozy home with their human parents, Koon Wah and Daphnie.
The trouble began when Meatball saw the introduction of cat food for his kittens as an all-you-can-eat buffet invitation.
Worried about Meatball’s expanding waistline and the risk of the kittens going hungry, Daphnie and Koon Wah knew they had to intervene.
To solve this culinary conundrum, they decided to take some creative measures. Daphnie recounts their strategy:
“Koon Wah built partitions to separate them during meal times. We also had some fabric from some sake wine we bought in Japan and I sewed these to the front of each partition.”
“It has helped a little in terms of separating them during meal times but in terms of weight control, Meatball and Pepper are still a little overweight and the chubbier out of the four cats.”
While this setup helped maintain order during meals, it was still a challenge to control Meatball and Pepper’s weight, as they were the rounder duo among the feline quartet.
The Meatball Clan might have faced some dietary dilemmas, but they’re now on the right track to healthier eating habits.
Through this journey of teaching a food-loving cat dad some manners, Meatball, Mochi, and their kittens have discovered that moderation is key, even for the most devoted foodies.
And now, let’s take a peek at what their dinnertime looks like in the video below:
