The Feeding of Cindy

It has been well documented that we have struggled to get Cindy to eat out of a bowl. We finally figured out a few weeks ago that it wasn’t so much the bowl, although that was part of it, as much as it was the water we soaked her food in was too much for her tummy to handle.

However, we had gotten a tip from a fellow foster family that maybe starting with a Frisbee and working up to a bowl would be a good idea. So here’s our twice-daily process…

Could we start feeding Cindy out of a bowl now? Probably. Although given her flat face, I do think she has an easier time eating out of the flatter, wider Frisbee. Yes, she scatters food everywhere while she eats – definitely not the neatest eater you’ve ever seen – but she manages to eat every little bit of food that escapes from the Frisbee!
