Two Growing Girls

Further proof that The Fearless Ones are no longer kittens was furnished this afternoon when Willow leaped from the sofa on to the higher shelf above the cat beds – an unwelcome athletic development, for it's packed with all the knick-knacks removed from the lower shelf when moggies decided they'd found a fine place to pose and sleep.

An anxious Matchgirl spoke sternly as she removed The Grey Streak. Ten minutes later Willow was back in The Forbidden Zone. Cats don't care.

She was lifted down again and spoken to even more firmly. Since then she's behaved herself; now we must decide whether to remove the over-attractive landing pad and find a safer place for its contents or live in fear of The Crash In The Night.

Life's been tough for all members of The Pride since Dr Vet's assistant drew up a feeding plan designed to reduce Maia from a portly 4.85kg to a svelte 4kg. As this means cutting out snacks, the former kittens have suffered too (although they've taken it a lot more quietly than the famished black feline).

The good news is that, according to our bathroom scales, Maia has already begun to shed her surplus podge. How accurate they are is another matter. They also indicate that Willow, once the smaller of two teeny bundles of fluff, now weighs as much as her sister.

How much longer before they're the same size as Maia? Tempus fugit.
