Bad Dog !

Cheery the Dog has a long-standing feud with Sweety the Cat next door. 

Cheery is 6 times as heavy as Sweety, but that has never been any help when trying to climb trees or walls in pursuit of her.

One day, Sweety eats too many prawn crackers, and falls asleep in the sun… 

Cheery quietly creeps up behind her and gobbles her down in a determined swallow.

Bad Dog, Cheery. Poor pussy cat, Sweety.

Cheery’s owner takes the distended dog to the Vets, where careful weighing reveals him to weigh a massive 15.4 kg, with Poor Sweety inside…

 How heavy was Sweety?
