Ka TwoHi, I have been noticing my Mom and KaTwo need to lose a lot of weight. I am quite svelte so I thought I would try to help them. There was a time when I was not fat, but I had a little extra meat on my bones. I figured I should get trim being that I am 14 years old and arthritis could set in.

Phoebe pole dancingOne of the best things I did was to pole dance. I burn so many calories in a short time plus I stay limber.  I am willing to let KaTwo use my pole and give her some lessons. Sorry Mom, you are on your own with that one. I think maybe going for some walks would do you good.

I never eat my entire meal either now, I always leave a few bites. I prefer to have several snacks throughout the day, I just let Mom or Dad know when I want something and they give it to me. Unfortunately, when they open the package, everyone comes running for some. I think only kitties that didn’t finish their meals should get snacks, but everyone gets some. I know my Mom is a member of the clean plate club, I never see a morsel left on her plate. I think she should start leaving a few bites like I do and so should KaTwo.

Phoebe licking the cakeI don’t believe in restricting anything because then you will end up bingeing on it. For example, I came across this cake before Mom devoured it so I took a few licks. I was satisfied with just a taste, but my Mom had to have her cake and eat it too.

I am hoping these tips will help them to take off some pounds. Please feel free to try them yourself if you need to lose a few. I will keep you posted as to their progress ( or lack of).

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."
