Don’t let the picture fool you. Cat be chubby.
Inquiring minds want to know how Matata is recovering from her Veterinary Adventure last weekend...and whether Hakuna has resumed eating.
After a day of Extreme Indolence in which she could scarcely be coaxed to leave her Cat-Bed, Matata was back to her usual antics by Monday mid-day. Once she was up and running, Hakuna could relax and resume her normal practice of watching Matata eat first.
At the vet, we found that Matata had gained an ounce or two over the past year, bringing her to 12 pounds, 2 ounces. That’s 5.5 kilos of Cat-Meat, impressive when you consider that both cats split a daily ration of one cup of Diet Kibble.
Maybe if I invest in a Cat-Size Hamster Wheel, ’Ta can work off some of that excess lard.
Hakuna, meanwhile, will face her Day o’ Reckoning with the vet this weekend. I don’t expect her to be laid low the way Matata was - she doesn’t react to the vaccines the same way her sister does - but she will give me the Silent Treatment as revenge for taking her. Azoy geht es.
