Spike and Emily




Two hepcats.
(I know, you don't have to remind me they don't look athletic, the Vet put them on a DIET)

Hey,it's snowing out there!

So if you think we have tropical temps at my place, what are you guys at?

Cats on diets. Pffffft. Cleo puts on weight every winter and then works it off exploring and chasing birds the rest of the year.

Good morning Gary!

Cat diets? No more smelly cat food? Do they have to eat salad?

They're both very cool despite being a bit chubby. Our puss, Charlie, was looking a bit hefty at 12 pounds (she's got a small-ish build) so we have been regulating her food. As of last night she's lost 14 ounces in just under a month. Pretty darn good and on her way to being svelte once again. :)

Hehe. Our cat (Couscous) is on a diet too!

When they get so big you think you're going to dislocate something lifting 'em, you know it's time for le diet, and yours both look that way to me, or mighty close to it. Happy, well-fed, and doted on, not a doubt of it, but not good for pets OR people! They do have special diets for cats, just like for us'n's, you know.

Spike weighed in with the vet at about 20 pounds and she made it clear that it is time for a CHANGE!

Diets make not a happy cat. Good luck with that!

Spike and Maria Osmond are on diets.

But it's winter! They're what Garrison Keiller refers to as "heater cats". The extra girth benefits whomever's lap they choose to sit on.

I like these pictures because you can see the difference between the makerel tabby markings (Spike's) and the tortise shell ones (Emily).

Those two chubby cats are perfect.
