Current status: She is locked in the master bedroom, and we have a shock mat deployed beside the door. She touched it once. We think she got the message.
She had been on a weight-loss diet for about a year, but in the summer we had her teeth cleaned of tartar. Since then she has been increasingly demanding of food. In the last few weeks she has ripped open six bags of food in the store. She has put some weight back on, and is limping again.
Obviously, this can not continue. We are trying to find a solution which keeps the weight off her without destroying store inventory. She is at risk for pheline diabetes, and there is no way we can keep her in the store while adhering to the needed insulin injection schedule. If she develops diabetes, she will have to come home (the trial tonight was not successful), or find another home. We do have an option available there.
