The weather was cold enough I brought the cat carrier into the house to warm it up before loading kitty Into it. I left the cage door open to make it easier to load her in when I was ready.
When time to leave I tried to load her in but it was a struggle. She didn't to go in there so I pushed and shoved to get her in far enough to close the hatch. Carrying her to the car was more difficult than usual as she seemed to have picked up a lot more weight. I was concerned that maybe she was getting too fat.
At the vet's office I put the cage up on the examining table and asked the vet to check her out. The vet opened the cage door, looked in and asked, "Which one do you want looked at?". Stunned, I looked in and there was the other cat, Silver, snuggled in beside Belle. He had entered the cage without my knowledge while I was after Belle.
No kitty diet required.
