From early on, my puddings have been on the slightly bigger side.
Plant pot stand
I was lucky enough to weigh them when they were just a few months old & this has given me a good reference point. I do not think they will mind me telling the world their weight at the height of youth & fitness: Raspy was 48g & Atilla was 52g.
Their weights were actually quite heavy but this must have been because of their big-bones and/or part exhibition genes.
I regret to say that over time, their weight has steadily increased, Atilla’s slightly more so than Raspy. This has not been as a result of being fed bad food as they have always had vegetables, very little millet (which is supposed to be fattening although I believe the jury is still out on that one) & virtually no honey sticks/bells.
Slipping the digital scales under the stand
They will not thank me for divulging how much heavier they became….
Since Atilla’s recent acquisition of a fatty lump, I have resurrected the “weigh-in“.
To make it easier, I now convert the plant pot stand into weighing scales. 🙂 The pictures show how I do this. The measurements are pretty accurate, although do change by a gram or two when the stand wobbles.
Waiting for pudding or toyboy to land on stand to get their weight
This is the first time I have weighed the toyboys & they both come in at approx 41g, which I believe is average. The surprise is that the boys weigh the same… I thought Cagney would be a lot lighter than Bezukhov.
Once again, the girls would not be happy if I told the world their current weight. There is another surprise here in that Raspy weighs the same as Atilla.
(All weights are approximate).
