At one time, Xena was so huge that her gut was almost hanging to the floor. It made her look ill-proportioned, as though her legs were too short for her body. She had already lost some of that weight by the time I began the Nu Campaign to Fight Pet Obesity, but she was still a big girl.
Today she looks SO much better. In fact, it's gotten difficult to tell which black cat is which when they both race by.
This week's weigh-in found both cats at their lowest weight to date. Xena is at 14.8 pounds and Velvet is down to 10.4 pounds.
Xena likes it when people hold her and carry her around, so she'll hop up on furniture and then launch herself at unsuspecting humans. When she weighed 16+ pounds, it was hard to hold her for more than a minute or so. Now that she's so much lighter, we can snuggle her for the length of time she prefers.
