A few weeks ago we went to brunch at Justin and Benji’s house. Justin moved from the US about a year ago and brought with him his two cats. Like so many other residents of middle America, these cats have been struggling with their weight.
The good news is, since moving to Thailand the cats have lost a lot of weight. (Same thing happened to me… initially!) Unfortunately, severe weight loss is often accompanied by a need for a tummy tuck because the skin does not tighten up as quickly as the weight is lost. Here, one of the cats lays on the floor, his extra skin spreading out like a floor mop or a purring panther skin rug.
Eventually, the cat decided he had had enough of my invading his privacy so got up and trotted off to the bedroom.
You’re not even kidding, he’s fat! Gives my chocolate lab a run for the money! but now losing weight? Well, he appears to be like, shall I say, not totally wasted away yet.
Probably, I’ll end up in “cat hell” but I was thinking that one could pull the cat over the floor by its tail and thus clean the floor. Like a mop.
that’s a gorgeous cat. such lovely black coat.
I thought this was an entry about Rob (Fatcat723).
I need to go off my diet, in case i develop a flap, lol.
‘Purring panther skin rug’ BRILLIANT :]I need to lose weight like those cats. 🙂
Cute, but, yeah, fat lol
ahahahaha… Too cute!! Thanks for sharing. I have a soft spot for cats, fat or otherwise
Haha he really is fat! I didn’t know that the cats from middle America are that chubby. He has such a sweet face. ❤
OK, now that is/was a fat cat and I deny any relationship
Bah, I hate cats…plus they give me allergies.
oh my, that is a HUGE cat! i’m glad it’s losing weight….@Fatcat723 – hahaha when i read the title of chris’ post i immediately thought of you and wondered what you would say!
Cats, sex or babies. Sure to get hits
@Inciteful – Ain’t that the truth? Only about 24 hours and it has well over 500 views. The Lard-o-Licious entry is half that after five days!
@beowulf222 – OMG you are funny.
Every cat that we’ve had, would gain so much weight. The funny thing was the kids’ pediatrician would come home for dinner some nights, and he would tell me, ” Zakiah you need to put Sheba (or Bacchus) on a diet”. Saadia and Sayeed would look at me with such sad looks. They didn’t want their cat to look thin or scrawny.
I have a friend who brought a stray kitty home one day. She took care of it so well that all these years, it has grown so big and soooo fat as these cats, maybe even fatter.
awww so cute!!!
You take great photos and your thoughts are interesting and informative. Keep it up…a new fan…
