It is actually a lovely shade of cinnamon rather than the bright orange it appears.

I'm glad you are enjoying my cat! She weighs 18 lbs. and is named, ahem, Little Kitten. My daughter says she is "big boned" but the vet thinks she needs a low cal diet and more exercise.

The thing OTN is the Vogue wavy lace wrap from Interweave Knits. I got my inspiration from Carmen's post.

Yeah, but what do you do when they are on weight management food and are still little porkers? Mine weighs almost 23 lbs and runs around the house and chases our poor yorky like he is possessed so he gets exercise. Your wrap is gorgeous by the way as is Little Kitten.

To get a cat to lose weight, you put them on the TV diet. Put their food bowl on the TV (or other high place) and they don't eat until they can jump up to it. It worked for one of my in-law's cats...

You want to be really careful with cats and their diets. What my vet is having me do is feed my cat much small portions through out the day. She went from getting a cup a day to an 1/8 of cup twice a day...yes we measure, and no snacks. We saw the weight loss in a month...and she is much more spry...taking off with my yarn :doh: I feel so warm inside when she does this a hardly mind. Me my kitty tea and my needles what a day! :heart:
yours,

Yes, her indoor formula, weight control food is on the dryer so that she has to climb up to it. And, I measured her food to figure out just how much she was eating--not even the recommended amount. The thing is she LOVES her bed! I have to shoo her outside when I get home from work so that she can enjoy some fresh air and exercise. Our house stays cool, so she is tricked into hibernation mode even though we live in southern California and the thermometer finally dipped below 95 degrees just this week.

BTW Carmen, I'm about 50 inches into the Wavy Lace wrap!! She's a beaut.

Well my best friend nearly didn't make it out of Canada with her wrap. She had to promise her mom that I would make one for her too. So I am ordering the yarn up this weekend. At least it is a fairly easy knit, despite how intricate it looks.
