See that? Uh huh. The vet scale says I'm in the 24s. And since 25 pounds is my "perfect weight", 24.9 makes me officially skinny. Too skinny, if you ask me. I haven't been this skinny since 2010!
ME: I told you! I'm starving to death!
HUMAN: I don't think you're exactly starving to death.
ME: well, I need at least 0.1 pounds more food.
HUMAN: (silent and confused, trying to do the math)
In September, the scale said I was a whole pound and a half fatter and I was starving to death back then too. Of course my human said I was too tubey to be starving, but can't you see the hunger in my eyes?
Anyway. Since my human is so great at math (and I was afraid she'd totally get it wrong) I decided to help her out.
ME: Google says 0.1 pounds is the same as eating 350 calories.
HUMAN: uhhhh, I'm not sure it works like that.
ME: Google says it does.
HUMAN: well, I guess if Google says so.
Thank Google! Now all I have to do is figure out the best way to eat 350 calories. Of course my belly says bacon, but Google says 3 oz of it has 763 calories. Huh what?! I'm not 100% how much 3oz is, but three of anything doesn't sound like a whole lot and I'd only be able to eat like HALF of it.
This whole calorie thing is kinda confusing. Any ideas??
