She weighs around 12 pounds, and yes, there's a little extra in her undercarriage, but I assure you, mostly she's just very hairy.
When I discovered her sitting in this position I fought hard to hold in the laughter. I slowly backed out of the room, grabbed the camera, and came back just in time to get a few shots before she moved and assumed a more dignified pose.
And then I laughed hard for a very long time. And then I uploaded the pictures and laughed harder for an even longer time.
This made Charlene sulky. Cats know when they are being laughed at, and they usually don't like it.
But good golly, how could I not laugh at this.
I'm sorry for the laugh at your expense, Charlene. But I had to share this picture with your friends.
