A neighbor of my brother was wanting to give their cat away in favor of a puppy. My daughter of 5 at the time was wanting a cat. We thought we could give him a home, so we went got the cat. Upon first glance I thought, wow! That cat is huge, we're going to put him on diet. The owners had his shot records so we didn't take him to the vet until yesterday. They weighed him at 22 pounds, that is after we put him on a low carb, high protein diet for a year. I'm kinda of at a loss on what to do. Yeah, he took to me, as you can see him snuggling himself asleep against my leg.
