How do you lose weight? How do you work towards the life you want?

Day 18 - Cat Lady

Another saga from Days of Being Fat:

I have two cats which I rescued from a cornfield. I never wanted to own cats (being a single girl afraid of the cat lady label), but as soon as I saw these two kittens I knew that they were mine. Anyway, they go to the vet twice a year. One of the cats, Finnegan, is a little heftier than the other, Husker. During Finnegan's check up, in between the snarls and scratches he is inflicting on the vet, I ask the vet "Do you think Finnegan is too fat?" The doctor pauses a second, looks me up and down and says "No, I don't think you have to worry about Finnegan."
