Kitty Diet

We put our big boy, Cat VIII, on a diet. That mainly consists of giving him more foods that are meat-rich and putting the meal-rich foods too high for him to jump to (he spends a lot of time roaming around, meowing plaintively and saying, "Hey, can you bring that down?" The others, who haven't plumped out so much, still have continuous access to their food; he is being regulated.

He is learning the cold hard facts, and you can see him working out the problem. We figure that if he finally is able to jump up for the food, he'll probably have lost enpough weight to justify it. Sort of self-regulating :)
