What a Mama's Boy!

My sister has four cats. Her heftiest cat is Lawrence. He weighs in at a little over 20 pounds. My sister has nicknamed Lawrence "Chubs" due to his being an overweight kitty cat. Lawrence is the neediest of my sister's cats. He is a mama's boy, big time. When my sister takes a shower, Lawrence cries and bangs on the bathroom door in the hope that my sister will come out of that bathroom. If my sister leaves to run an errand, Chubs cries as she walks out the door. When my sister returns, Lawrence cries to let my sister know how upset he is about her leaving him. I told Sis she needs one of those wrap-style baby carriers for Lawrence like many human moms wear to enable them to carry their babies on their person during the day. . Sis said her back would probably go out if she carried 20-pound Lawrence around all day long in a wrap-style baby carrier. The three other cats that Sis owns just roll their eyes at Lawrence when he does his crybaby thing. Photo: Lawrence, a.k.a. Chubs

'hefty' --- new word for me. If your sister doesn't want to ruin her back carrying a hefty cat, she may try placing it in a pram and pushing it when she goes shopping.

He does have a pram just for cats!! She does take him outside in the pram so that he can accompany her on a walk, and she also takes him to the veterinarian in the pram. The other cats are probably glad he is gone due to his needy ways. "Hefty" does sound a lot nicer that "fat." Sis purchased a pram, or what we call a buggy or stroller, for Lawrence from Chewy.com.

@Corbin5 I didn't know such things existed! Quite pricey I must say. I'm sure Master Lawrence enjoys the walkabouts.

Such an adorable and smart cat! He'd have to lose some weight if your sister were to carry him around in a carrier!

Oh yes, Sis is so petite, and a 20-pound cat is a heavy load for a small person.

@rey123 Oh, the vet does check Lawrence's weight, but so far no success in the weight-loss department.

At times, those huge cats become the biggest whiners! We had one, his name was 'Poo Poo Kitty.' His real name was 'Sweetie Pie,' which really didn't fit his personality. We babied him from the time he was tiny, so 'Poo Poo Kitty' actually believed that he was the center of our world. This all ended one day, when we left him home alone. He decided to tear a bag of garbage open, got bacon grease paw prints all over the kitchen floor and counter top! Then, he proceeded to gut an apple pie, I'd left on the counter to cool! That day, 'Poo Poo Kitty' officially became an adult cat! He was tried and convicted, without a jury

@kobesbuddy I love your story though I know it wasn't fun at the time it occurred. Our wild cat Saia loves to jump up and sniff out the stew even if it is garbanzo bean based.

I bet Poo Poo Kitty was one very well-loved kitty cat!!! He sure did make a mess with that bacon grease. Yes, when a kitty cat guts an apple, a grown up cat he is!!!

Oh, such a very affectionate cat! I have known that cats are always like that. I think that is one of the reasons why some people love cats as their pet.

Sis says that Lawrence is more like a dog. He follows her around the house day in and day out. She says he is the most affectionate of the four cats she has.

@annierose Yes, Lawrence is the youngest. Miss Murphy is 19 years old. Frankie Lynn is 7 years old, and Edward is 11 years old. Frankie Lynn only has 3 legs, and Sis adopted her as soon as she laid eyes on her.

He sounds very much loved and that is really important. Cats are all adorable for me. Probably because I haveĀ“nt got one personally that I am saying that. Whilst he is healthy and making his presence known that is what you call being "The Top Cat".
