Now is the time of year when a few of my cats ramp up their metabolism to prepare for the winter. They are in a heated house with plenty of food and water, but they still do it every year. So for these few the food intake doubles. This gets expensive.
Spunky eats twice what anyone of the cats normally eats, yet his physique is perfect. One of the vets just loves his shape. He's 9 lbs compared to a few that are 15 or more. He eats more than his share and then finishes their plates.
Lucy Lou, new to me, is also experiencing a ramp up, as well as Nellie. Lucy is an active cat, as is Nellie, so that's part of it.
In other news, Bob the bobtail, is finding his personality after 4 years. He likes to poke me with one claw, scaring the crap out of me. He paws me like a dog would. He seems to enjoy me yelling. He is learning how to relax. He likes to sit on all four paws while sitting on me. Painful with arthritis and psoriasis, not to mention he is at least 15 lbs. Much coaxing, teaching, and flat out arranging him so hit stays correctly.
Kimi, the dark Siamese, is a bit of a Diva, and has adopted some of the Ranger code, or at least she makes me think of Gandalf. She guards the hallway to the food and litter rooms, "you shall not pass." Snicker. The boys ignore her. Diva Jane, the Blue, has a special spot to eat now. So does Lucy.
Callie is still hiding in the kitchen area. She's about to get rousted.
That's all for now.
