Kitty Craig

Since I'm just a few cats short of crazy cat-lady territory, I am sharing Prada's latest issue. Chris decided last year the cat should go on a diet. She weighs about 15 pounds and evidently cats aren't supposed to weigh this much. In her defense, she's also a big cat. Tall, if you will, or long as the case may be. Anyway, we did start rationing her food a little more and using a measure cup to make sure we were consistent with amounts. She was fine with that for several months, but lately she seems to be hungry all the time. We switched to feeding her twice a day, once in the morning and once when we get home from work. We're still feeding her the same amount, just splitting it up to more often. This works fine on the weekdays because she spends the day sleeping while we are gone, but on the weekends when we're home she doesn't nap as much and has taken to sitting by her bowl all day. That's fine, but she'll plaintively meow whenever one of us looks at her. She's also arranged herself in such manner as if to say "how could you not give food to cutest kitty in the world," but even worse she just stares at us. See for yourself:

Let me know how the cat diet works out for you. Rina is now at a whopping 18 pounds. We feed her LESS than what is recommended, do the measuring thing two times a day, and she's fairly active. She's given up begging us, but any visitor that crosses the door is fair game.

HAHA. Monti just started a diet last Monday. He's been pretty good about it, but he's definately licking his bowl clean now.

I keep thinking how hard it would be for me on a forced diet.

Good luck Prada!
