Trapper is one of my girl Thimble's three biological brothers. Trapper and Thimble both look and often act very much alike, the main difference between them being their vast size difference. After all, Trapper is practically twice Thimble's size, weighing in at a mere 20 pounds. Although he would be a large cat regardless, Trapper could certainly stand to lose some weight. My parents are working on that, but the overly laidback, one chilled dude of a cat is a bit resistant to the notion. Perhaps this is in part due to the fact that he has learned to use his weight to his advantage, such as when sitting on or plowing through his furry siblings to win the prime snoozing spots. These such skills prompted us to start referring to Trapper as the juggernaut of the family, which then prompted me to draw this:

Our Tip of the Day:
Please keep in mind that excess weight and obesity is not a matter to take lightly in your furbabies. Overweight animals can end up with potentially detrimental medical issues, including heart disease, respiratory problems, diabetes, arthritis, and/or liver damage. If your furbaby is overweight, or if you have any concern regarding your cat or dog's weight, consult a veterinarian. It is important to ensure that excess weight is not a result of an underlying disease. And, it is just as important to get a handle on weight issues in your furbaby as early as possible.
