Hello humans, my name is Harley Quinn and I've joined MFP along with my new human to lose weight.
My previous owner was a young girl who loved me a little too much and spoiled me rotten, carrying me everywhere and feeding me whenever I was just trying to have a chat. Now she's had to go abroad and it wasn't until my new owner struggled to get me into and out of the cat carrier that I realised maybe the old girth had got wider than the whiskers, if you know what I mean!
I get exhausted just trotting from one end of my new home to the other and have to stop for a little lie-down. I can't quite make the jump from floor to lap without a little human help.
I'm trying to reach my goals through carefully measured portion sizes of regular, healthy food and exercise that I love, such as chasing catnip mice tied to a ribbon. At nine years old, I'm middle aged so it's not so easy as it once was.
I'm hoping to get as lithe as my adopted brother Taffy, who seems to be able to eat what he wants and stay skinny. Mind you, he gets a lot of exercise constantly pacing the place and attempting MMA moves on me while I'm just trying to chill.
Here are my "before" photos so I can track my progress. My human's dad says I look like a teacosy! People can be so thoughtless.
If there are any other chubby MFPets trying to slim down, I'd love to meet you!
