メロディの意外なダイエット方法

I am Melody.

2 years old, spayed female domestic cat.

When my human sister found me, I was just a few weeks old.

The day she found me was a day before her 6th birthday.

Pretty cool, huh?

She believed I was the birthday present from heaven.

So, of course, her parents couldn't say "NO," and that's how I ended up staying at their place.

 

私の名前はメロディ。

避妊手術済み、家猫女の子、2歳。

私が生後2週間くらいの時に、人間のお姉ちゃんに保護してもらったの。

 

私を見つけた日がたまたまその子の6歳になる誕生日の前日でだったんだって。

すごいでしょ?

その子ね、私の事を天国からのお誕生日プレゼントだと信じたみたいだから、

その子の両親は「だめ」って言えなかったらしい。

だからこうやって、今この家族と一緒に暮らしてるのよ。

 

 

The veterinarian said I have a Russian Blue and Maine Coon (and something else) in me.

That is why I have luxurious gray and white fur.

I am a large girl, but so what.

 

獣医さんが、私はロシアンブルーとメインクーン(他もろもろ)のミックスだって言ってたわ。

この素敵な灰色と白い毛がその証。

だから普通の子より大きいけど、それが何?って感じよ。

I was basically raised by my canine mom, Apple.

I ate what she ate.

I drunk what she drunk.

My first solid food was cheese and Cheerios.

And I was eating dog food for a while.

Go figure.

 

私、基本的に犬のアップルお母さんに育てられたの。

アップルお母さんが食べたものは何でも食べたし、同じものを飲んだわ。

私が初めて食べた固形のごはんは、チーズとCheerios(シリアル)。

それから、少しの間ドックフード食べてたわ。

ふふふ。

 

 

After I was spayed, I gained so much weight very quickly.

I was not really worried, but my human mom was.

 

一気に体重が増えたのは避妊手術してから。

私はそこまで気にしなかったけど、人間のお母さんはすごく心配してた。

 

She tried everything from switching foods, trying to make me being active by using toys.

Since I am a picky kitty, I only play with one toy, Cat Kicker from Japan.

 

お母さんは私の体重を落とそうとして、ごはんを変えたり、

おもちゃを使って私に運動させようとしてたな。

私、おもちゃに好き嫌いがあるんだけど

唯一好きなおもちゃ、日本からの猫キッカーでは遊んであげたわ。

I don't run and certainly do not climb onto higher places.

I love staying under the bed with my canine mom, Apple.

But everything changed after my human sister brought a new kitten, Pixie to home.

 

私、走るの苦手だし、絶対に高いところなんて登らない。
犬のアップルお母さんがいる、ベットの下が一番好き。
でも、人間のお姉ちゃんが新しい子猫のピキシーを連れて帰って来てから全てが変わったわ・・。

Pixie was different.

That kitten always wants to copycat me.

Pixie loves playing with toys and runs a lot.

She does not stay where Apple is but likes being on high places.

She does not even eat cereal but loves to eat fish.

YUCK.

 

ピキシーは少し変わってた。

ピキシーはアップルお母さんのいる所じゃなくて、高い所ばかり登ってたわ。

シリアルを食べずに魚ばっかり食べてた。

げぇって感じ。

 

Despite the differences, I have to admit that I started having fun playing with Pixie.

We started to run around at night, pretending we were having a field day in a hallway.

Everyone is asleep, but we really don't care.

Since the weather is so much nicer in Seattle, we go outside together more often.

The only thing I don't like is she steals my food sometimes though.

 

お互い多少違いはあるけど、ピキシーと遊ぶのがだんだん楽しくなってきたのは間違いなかったわ。

夜は二匹で、みんなが寝静まってるのを気にせず廊下で運動会。

それに、最近はシアトルの天気も良くなってきたから、外で遊ぶのも多くなったわ。

ピキシーが私のごはんを盗み食いするのはたまに傷だけどね。 

 

Since Pixie started to live with us, I lost 3.3 lbs to be exact.

I have to say Pixie helps me stay active and eat less (because she steals my food). 

There you have it. 

This is how I lost 3.3 lbs! 

 

*If your cat needs to lose weight, please discuss with your veterinarian first*

 

そして気づいたら、ピキシーが家に来てから約2キロも減量!

ピキシーが私の運動不足を直してくれたり、ごはんの量も少なくなった(ピキシーが盗み食いするからだけど)から、ピキシーのおかげね。

そうなの。

私メロディは、ピキシーのおかげで約2キロのダイエットに成功したの!

 

*皆さんの家猫が減量する必要がある場合は、まず獣医さんに相談しましょう*
