Getting skinny!

Our fat cat, Poquita, is a fat cat no more. For some unexplained reason she has lost 6 or 7 pounds. We've had her to the vet and he could find nothing wrong. She's 12 years old. On a similar note, Keith and I have both lost weight, 15 pounds for me and over 20 pounds for him. We can explain our weight loss. We're both doing heavy physical work in the barn and around the ranch in freezing weather. (Nice benefit to a not-so-nice experience!) But what about Poquita? She's doing nothing more physical than sleeping, meeting us at the door, jumping up on the table to beg people food, then going back to sleep. A mystery! Maybe it's a sympathy weight loss!

Sympathy weight loss sounds like a good explanation! (You've heard of sympathy weight GAIN by husbands when their wives are pregnant...Adam experienced this a few times!)
