Vrinda taught her cat how to do the laundry...? ...therefore not having to walk all the way to the laundromat like usual? and the lack of exercise made her gain weight?

Is Vrinda's gain of weigth related to:
Less physical activity?
Different eating habits (if so, quality of food, quantity of food, moments of the day when she eats)?
Some sort of illness?
Less nervous stress?
Pregnancy?
Or something else?

Is the gain of weight wanted? Welcomed?
Is Vrinda happy about it?

Is Vrinda's gain of weigth related to:
Less physical activity? possibly
Different eating habits (if so, quality of food, quantity of food, moments of the day when she
eats)? quality & quantity
Some sort of illness? no
Less nervous stress? no
Pregnancy? no
Or something else? well, eating more fattening food & possibly exercising less are the proximate causes

she was so protective of the cat that all she ate was delivered pizza, and never left the house, so she never got exercise?

Antother "solution": Vrinda stopped eating normal food, and started eating cat´s food too (for some more or less plausible reason: laziness, need to save money, solidarity with the cat eating that disgusting stuff...). She gained weight partly because of the compact intake of fat and proteines in cat´s food, partly because she felt so nauseated after eating it that she just had to lie down on the couch... :)

If she had gotten a different cat would she still have gained weight? if she had gotten a different animal entirely?
If a different person had gotten the same cat would that person have gained weight?
Did she start gaining weight: before she got the cat? soon after? some time after?
Would it help to find out more about the fattening food she was eating? or is it enough to know that it was fattening?

is the breed of cat important?

did she see the cats do nothing but eat and sleep and decide to emulate it :)

does the cat sit on top of her for five hours a day insisting to be pet so she can never stand up or do anything(mine sure does)

some 'clasic' cat behavior relevant?

Would it help to find out more about the fattening food she was eating? No, much as I love to describe fattening food or is it enough to
know that it was fattening? yes

the classic cat behavior purring? cat naps? eating? begging for food? always being in the way when you want something?

some item that she would have in the house due to having a cat relevent? litter box at all relevent?

would someone who had the pet but didn't like it have gained weight? only someone who loves cats? anyone who had to take care of one?

so someone who dislikes cats would get fat but someone who likes cats wouldn't? meaning vrinda dosen't like cats?
