purring off the pounds

Tornado Kitty is now down to sixteen pounds, according to our bathroom scale. We used to jokingly call Tornado Kitty the “good cat” and Simon the “bad cat,” although Rob suspected TK was only “good” because she couldn't cause trouble by climbing onto things or scratching (her front claws were removed in a previous life). As she's slimming down and growing more agile, she's proving Rob right—by climbing onto the coffee table, under and on top of the bathtub, and onto the dining room table (which isn't much more than a foot above the floor, but she didn't do that before). She isn't causing trouble so much as she's just acting like a regular cat, really.

I wish we could get Hastur and Lemur to a decent weight. The problem with dietary restriction is that Hastur will simply eat everything, and Lemur needs food too. =) Something that helps (a little) is to dole out the food to both sides of the dish, since Hastur can't eat from both simultaneously, try as he might. They're both still remarkably fast and agile despite their weights, though.

Our cat is barely 9 lb, and she's still far from agile...
