Perils of fat cats

It is still bitterly cold out so yesterday I had a happy evening indoors. We played with Da Bird until we were all tired out. Then I sat next to mum and Josie sat on the back of the sofa by mum's head and mum was watching something that was making her laugh and we were cosy as can be. I was also very happy as I was a Catster Pick of the Day which made me feel extra special. It was a perfect evening.

Then mum told us a story a friend had told her at work. They had been sitting enjoying just such a cosy evening earlier this week when they suddenly felt an icy cold rush of air. All the windows were shut - where could it be coming from?

When they went to look they found that their cat had been coming in through his flap but he' to say this nicely ...he likes his dinner and there is plenty of him to prove that fact. His ample girth had been too much for the little door and he had brought the whole thing in with him.

Don't worry - the cat had wriggled out. He was fine. They just found the door lying in the middle of the floor and a gap where it had been. And they were able to fix it which is good as cats hate draughts.

He is now on a diet.

I laughed as I am a slim thing and I keep Josie trim too by eating her food and chasing her around. I try and do the same for mum as she could stand to lose a few pounds (although she's never taken a door out to be fair) but she doesn't let me take her food.

The cat involved is a tabby boy and mum did say that she has known quite a few tabbies who just seemed to end up big and cuddly. I said "us black cats not so much" but mum reminded me that whilst my real mum was a petite black kitty my dad was a tabby of unknown size so she says not to take anything for granted.

I used to be fat, but I never brought a door with me. MOL!

Mum said she like to see some more pud on my bones I'm too skinny. I think the vet would too. I eat like horse and nothing seems to stick anymore. I don't know if this is a good thing or not.

PS can you please delete my blank post it was sent by accident.

MMTO! YOu have the best stories, Toby! My sisfur and I have been on a diet for almost a year and I can't say I'm happy about it. We have lost weight, though. Now it's mom's turn

Hmph, I'm a Tabby and Mom likes that there is so much of me. Now in the winter when it's cold I need some extra padding. What if there is a snowstorm and Mom can't get out to buy cat food?
