One of the best things I've ever bought for the cats is a digital postal scale to weigh them. At the time (8 years ago), I thought the $40 was expensive. It's proved invaluable, and I've found other uses for it too. I've weighed packages, letters, vegetables from my garden, and fats for soapmaking.
Since Tucker's cancer diagnosis, I've been keeping tabs on his weight. I put a box on the scale, tare it out, and place a cat inside.
|Geez, mom, how embarrassing.|
Tucker's usual weight is 14 lb. 10 oz., so he's up one ounce.
Unfortunately, Sadie's weight is up too, a few ounces.
|I do NOT want to sit still for this.|
Benny would have none of this and I could not get a photo.
I highly recommend getting a digital scale like this. It's really great tool to have.
