Jewelsy, I can understand the food frustration! I've two comfy cats, to put it politely. Willow is about 9" tall and maybe a foot long not including her tail, but I swear she's at least 7" wide! LOL Bless her heart, I just can't seem to restrict her diet since she was literally skin & bones when she appeared on my doorstep.
Doyle is BIG - 17lbs big, but just HUGE. I have a feeling that he's a lot like Gabriel's cats - and there's not a lot of fat on him - he's just one big boy! I will get around to measuring him one of these days but I know tip to tail he's over 3'... just one big boy!
I'm glad to hear that your babies are doing much better, Jewelsy. Doyle's actually allergic to plastic of all things - and I found that out by making him drink from a plastic dish & noticing all these sores on his chin... yup - allergic reaction. I can always tell when he's been playing in a shopping bag because he'll get his chin sore again.
Mr. Mel has been away on business for most of the summer and Doyle has decided that his mama rules! Mr. Mel is home about once every two or three weeks for the weekend, and the cats completely ignore him - I'm the queen in my world!
