Murphy says, “Mom, I’m not fat. I’m just extra furry!”

We adopted Murphy from NCSR almost two years ago. At the vet’s request he’s on a diet and finally losing a bit of weight. Just like with people, this has been difficult for him as he REALLY likes to eat (who doesn’t?) but we know it’ll be better for him in the long run.

Awe, what a cutie, Susan! Hugs to you for adopting!

I have no idea how I got them to sit quietly for the camera because most of the time they’re play fighting! 
Must be cookies, Susan?

I especially like how one has the tongue out, the other the head tilt and the third the stink-eye!
