Kitties. I am thinking of starting a "weight loss for kitties" spa here. I don't eat much myself (Simba) as I am picky, and I am quite thin under all my floof. Mom can feel my vertebrae easily. But Lady Audrey was a bit ::ahem:: tubby when she came to live here a year ago. She eats like a horse (no offense to the Poupounette Percherons) - breakfast of wet food about 7 am, some dry kibble at 12:30 dispensed from her automatic feeder, wet food at 5 pm for dinner, more dry from the feeder at 9:45 pm and 5 am to keep her from waking the humans too early. You would think she would be HUGE! But she has slimmed down quite a bit this year, probably because she gets lots of exercise going up and down stairs, pouncing on birdies on the deck, and pacing back and forth to the kitchen to let the humans know her next mealtime is near. Here's the proof!
Compare the above picture to this one from 1 year ago:
Maybe it is because she no longer does THIS:
(Just by the way, I think Mom was pretty mean picking that second picture! She really was not THAT tubby!).
