Guess Who's the BIGGEST LOSER?

My cat, Pumpkin, of course! Our vet held a "Biggest Loser" contest for the cats and dogs at the clinic. Miss Pumpkin was a prime candidate! And she did really well! She actually came in 2nd
place. She lost 3 lbs, which was 17% of her body weight. The winner lost 18%, but I guess he was on the program longer, so they awarded the grand prize to both.
Just what is the grand prize? A year's worth of cat food (the diet kind!) - free!!
We've been trying to get Pumpkin to drop some poundage for a while, and she was slowly doing just that, but this new food by Purina seemed to really do the trick (that and eliminating all dry food - apparently she doesn't handle the carbs too well). And no, we are not starving her, she is eating plenty. She's still got about 2 more pounds to lose. Now that she can jump up on my sewing desk, she likes to sun herslef in the window while I sew. I love it!
