Fatty Bum Bum

11 Mar


Sparta Puss has put on a shedload of weight over the Winter! She resists all attempts to put her on a diet so I’m naming and shaming her! I can’t cut down her rations too much because we’re looking after a Senegal parrot for a few weeks while his humans are on holidays and whenever Sparta is hungry, she sits next to the parrot’s cage and stares greedily at him. When he goes home, we’ll be counting her calories strictly. I think I’ll get her a treadmill. I drew this into my A5 hardbacked sketchbook, opened fully, using a graphite stick. She’s lying along my lap and she’s so heavy that she’s making my legs ache. I should call her Fatta Puss from now on.

    I think she just has you well trained. After all, we do know that cats own their humans, not the other way around.

    We have plenty of “Fat Cats” over here in America 🙂

      We have a lot here too, usually closely connected to slimy politicians 😉

    She looks very big, indeed! A treadmill will be great! 😉 Have a lovely day. Sunny greetings!

      I don’t know whether I could persuade her to get off the chair and use a treadmill 😉

        I guess it’s counterproductive. But you could lure her into the threadmill with some treats. ;D

      I could put the parrot on it too, then she could chase him. Sending torrential rain your way, sorry

    The treadmill, definitely! Ha ha. Delightful sketch. I really like the composition.

      Thank you. She is such a Iump!

        She visits other people in the street and i think she may be exploiting pensioners

    Poor Sparta Puss! My brother Sherman is on a diet and you’d think he was being starved. He tries to sneak everyone else’s food when our moms aren’t looking!

      She’s been very lazy this winter, I think that’s her problem
