Tas is a huge fatty!

Post by Usha77 on Sun Apr 05, 2009 10:32 pm

Help! Okay, Lan used to be huge - he was 179 grams (even without a tail)! His optimal weight per the vet and based on his body type was about 150-155g & I was worried - the other 3 in the quad were slightly overweight, Nynaeve was 155-160 (& is supposed to be around 145-150), Tika & Tas were about 165-170 (and should be about 150-155). For all I know, Lan & Nynaeve are related (I don't know their lineage) & they came to me with Tika & Tas IP...

After I switched to HPW, Lan & Nynaeve both lost weight, Lan is now pretty much perfect at 155g & Nynaeve is a tiny bit chunky at 155g. Tika is up to 175 g and holding and Tas is a whopping 190g. These 4 do not get treats, except mealworms once every couple of weeks on nail clipping night. I feed them exactly as directed. However, lately I have noticed that when I go in to check on the babies, oftentimes 3 of the quad are in the pouch, sleeping - and Tas is up and eating. I have never seen any signs of food aggression or Tas chasing anyone away - I think he just stays up late and eats! Is there anything I can do?

The only thing I can think of is stimulation. Do you do feather play ? That can really get them going. Also you might try hanging a shoe string from your hand to the floor where they are playing. They will probably love the activity of crawling up into your hands. They might not even realize it is exercise.

I'll try those - it's kind of hard to get Tas motivated, though... Very Happy
