Meet Ms Chubbs

A couple of weeks ago I posted the amazing story of Desperate Kitty. Now, meet Ms Chubbs. She was a stray I couldn't find a home for so she stayed with me. She might be related to Desperate Kitty as they showed up in my yard around the same time. Anyway, here's a picture of her as I first knew her.

At that time her name was Ms Little, now she's Ms Chubbs. A total sweetheart... I'll plead distraction on her achieving the Rubenesque proportions she presently enjoys. I just didn't notice her extra pounds so much... *she carries it well*... as I had the drama of another cat dying... plus I've never had an obese kitty before. Yep. Insufficient excuses, but they are all I got. Here is a picture of her now....

My theory on her lifted hind leg is she is airing out her rear. She can't reach it to clean it, so she sits with one paw up. What's funny is... when I took her in? She had poop hanging off her rear. (TMI, I'm sure.) Just goes to show the child is father of the man... or cat...

**And yes she's on a diet. She does seem rather attached to her voluptuous beauty though... as it doesn't seem to be going anywhere!

Ms Chubbs you are a cutie! Our neighbor has a cat that could be your twin...his name is Felix!

Just more to love right? My mom has a cat that weighs about 20 pounds. She's huge, but I think Mrs. Chubbs carries it off well. Maybe it's just all that floofy fur that makes her look that large.

Cammie says hey Ms. Chubbs!

We adopted Cammie, a 9 year old cat last Nov. She only weighs 14 pounds but she is soooooo fat! She can't reach her back/butt either. She's been on a diet since we got her, but she's hanging on to all the weight!

Hey, anyone who takes in strays is aces with me. I've done so a few times, myself.

Now, serious question. Have you had her to the vet for a check-up recently? Perhaps she has a urinary infection and/or irritation that she is being troubled by. Just a thought, concerning the leg lifting. It may be nothing of the kind, of course.

good point suldog. I'll get her checked out.

Why does this always seem to come up on holiday weekends?
