Picture of my kitten in a shoe when he was about 2 months old. He now weighs 22 lbs. He has grown up quite a bit.
I mean, I'm jutting out into three full rooms at this point, and if that's not proof that we're outgrowing our current living situation, then I don't know what is! And no, dieting is not an option. I don't see how me getting smaller will really affect the total amount of space we have to split between us. That doesn't make any sense at all!
