Meatball, the overweight father of four kittens, needed a little guidance on proper cat behavior. It hasn’t been long since Meatball became a father, and ever since his kittens began eating solid food, he has devoured it all by himself, leaving little or nothing for the little cuties.
This continued for a few days, during which time the humans noticed Meatball becoming larger and the kittens becoming paler.
Meatball, his three kittens, and his partner Mochi reside in Hong Kong with their two humans, Koon Wah and Daphine, with whom they share a home.
So, in keeping with Meatball’s fitness secret, the tiny kitten started following in her father’s footsteps after watching him do it. When humans discovered what was going on, they came up with a clever solution.
“During meal times, Koon Wah built partitions to separate them,” Daphnie told in an interview.
“I sewed some cloth from some sake wine we got in Japan to the front of each barrier,” she explained.
“It has helped a little with separating them during feeding times, but Meatball and Pepper are still a touch overweight and the chubbier of the four cats in terms of weight control,” Daphnie added. Cats are intelligent creatures who have figured out how to navigate!
