Meet Meatball, the fat dad cat who needs a little bit of help keeping up with good manners. See, recently he became a parent, and when his humans started giving solid food to his kittens, he took it as an invite to eat more than he should – all at the expense of his children and his puurrfect body shape.
Meatball, his partner Mochi, and their adorable feline kids Nugget and Pepper live in Hong Kong with their two humans, Daphnie and her husband Koon Wah.
When their owners saw that Meatball was gobbling up more food than before, getting fat, and taking away from his children, they decided to do something about it – especially when they saw that Meatball’s daughter Pepper started following her father’s bad habits.
“Koon Wah built partitions to separate them during meal times,” Daphnie told The Dodo. “We also had some fabric from some sake wine we bought in Japan and I sewed these to the front of each partition,” she said.
“It has helped a little in terms of separating them during meal times but in terms of weight control, Meatball and Pepper are still a little overweight and the chubbier out of the four cats,” Daphnie said. Well, with at least they’re on the right path.
