Meatball, the fat dad cat lives in Hong Kong with his companion, Mochi, and their two kids: Nugget and Pepper. To help raise them, he graciously shares the home with two full-time human assistants, wife Daphnie and husband Koon Wah.
Theirs is a love-filled household based on kindness and sharing — well, except during mealtime.
As the kittens got older and moved on to solid food, Daphnie and Koon Wah began feeding the cats together.
Unfortunately, Meatball seemed to think that, with extra food set out for them, it meant he could gobble up more than he had before. And it came at the expense of his kin, and his waistline.
The partitions were made from cardboard. But Koon Wah later upgraded it using some wood left over from another project. As an added touch, Daphnie adorned the cats’ four food cubbies with a decorative flap.
In time, the fat cat dad and his daughter should return to a healthier size. All thanks to Daphnie and Koon Wah’s creative solution to keep things fair among their feline family.
