they’ll get over it – it’s never ideal – but within time, they’ll probably forget about being weighed.

Nic said, on another post, to weigh them in an empty ice cream box – I did that to weigh an underweight, and worked brill – because before that, I just put her on my digital scales (it’s a flat square), and it kept showing different weights, as she kept moving about – and putting one leg off the scale and stuff – but weighing her in a box gave me a more accurate reading. If you want you could put a piece of kitchen roll in the box, but probably not necessary. I think they do that in hospitals as they have to weigh all their hogs, but in this situ probably not needed.
