We're almost a month into the Nu Campaign to Fight Pet Obesity and both cats have lost some weight. Xena is at her lowest yet, 15.2 pounds, and Velvet is down to a trim 11 pounds.
One thing I'm really noticing is how much energy they seem to have. Xena in particular seems much more playful. My husband reports that she's started bringing her crinkly mylar balls into bed and playing with them while he's sleeping. What she really wants is for him to throw them so she can fetch them and bring them back.
Here's Xena busily engaged with a catnip toy. You can see from the paw sticking into the frame that Dr. Jones was trying to get in on the action as well. We've been letting the studio cats downstairs for "field trips" for a couple of hours each day.
Velvet has always been pretty playful for an old gal (she's about 10 or 11), and she never hesitates to try to get a game going with one of the other cats or with us. Like Xena, she's not particularly concerned about whether or not you're awake when she tries to get your attention.
As I mentioned before, the cats' coats look especially gorgeous and shiny. I just brushed Xena a bit yesterday (she can't quite reach the area above her tail for grooming - let's hope she slims down enough to fix that). Now she's glossy from head to toe.
