"You know what a "diet" is, don't you? It's "die" with a "t," that's what it is!" ~ Garfield the cat

Our 1 year old cat, Bullet, is now on a diet. I took him to the vet on Thursday for his shots and checkup. He weighs 11 pounds. No, that isn't a misprint, he weighs 11 pounds. I knew he was heavy, but had no idea he was that heavy! No more canned food in the morning and only dry cat food during the day. Treats are limited too. Our vet said that neutered males are more likely to gain extra weight. So far, he seems to be adjusting to his new diet :0)

He doesn't look like a fat cat! But I guess 11 pounds is pretty hefty for a one year old. Love the Garfield quote!! So true :)

Toby weighed 10 lbs when she was 4 or 5. Bullett doesn't look overweight, but I guess you better nip it in the bud! :)
