My step daughter Katie, has a very large cat named Mikie. He is named this after the LSU Tigers mascot. Mikie weighs about 35 lbs and although very large is also very agile! He is obsessed with his food bowl and if he can actually see the bottom of it he will sit and stare at it and just cry until you cover the bottom.
She got him from the pound and he was very small and had indeed almost starved to death before they found him so maybe this is a side effect of being abandoned when he was little. He had already been declawed so we know that he belonged to someone and was lost.
Hi Paula: I laughed at the bit about wanting the bowl covered. And he is in the top division on weight, isn't he. My cat has similar "food problems" for similar reasons, which is sad. Thanks for sharing.....Michael (PoC Admin).
