Poor Tippi!

Oh, poor Tippi! What a week you’ve had. Poor baby. Mommy found an abscess on your tail and you wouldn’t stop licking it and making it worse. So, you’ve had your first experience “locked” up.

Hey, Tippi, I tried to tell you to just leave it alone and now there’s nothing I can do to help you. I may be your sister but you’re going to have to do the time.

Sunday Selfies – Nicky

As all cats love boxes and wrapping paper, Nicky, being the alpha cat, often takes first dibs on the new  boxes. Here he is enjoying one that brought his food!

Sunday Selfies: Freckles

Some of you who follow my blog might remember Freckles from this post.  Freckles is our biggest cat weighing in now at just under 25 pounds. We took him to the vet last week because we are concerned about his weight. We thought maybe he had a thyroid problem. According to the doc, cats don’t have thyroid problems that cause obesity. That only leaves two things — too much food and lack of exercise. So, he is starting a new diet and exercise program. It’s interesting in that he is our only overweight cat and three of our other six cats are related to him. Wish us luck cause I haven’t had good luck with my diet and exercise program! 😛

If any of you multi-cat households out there have suggestions on feeding cats with special diets, any ideas are greatly appreciated. I have a diabetic cat that wants to eat out of every bowl. I have one cat on a diet for UT blockage as a kitten and now a third cat on diet food. Ack! I used to feed them wet food (Wellness chicken or BFF tuna/salmon) in the morning and then let them graze all day on dry (Taste of the Wild). Guess that’s not working anymore.

So here is our Freckles. He was laying on the couch and I leaned over the back of the couch and took this pic. Yes, he is as big as he looks! Trust me when I say he can really move fast when he takes a mind to! He’s a cuddler. His way of waking me up in the morning is head-butting my arm and then laying across me. Ouch! 😀

Sunday Selfies

This is my first time participating in Janet’s The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies. This is Tippi, one of our seven indoor kitties. Sorry she’s a little blurry. She just did not want to sit still long enough to have her picture taken!

Janet has posted some information on an organization called The Lucy Pet Foundation. I do hope you’ll take just a moment to check out their website and see their commercial for the Super Bowl.

From Janet’s post:  The Lucy Bowl is a commercial scheduled to air on Super Bowl Sunday with a goal to raise awareness of the 80,000 U.S. pets euthanized each week due to overpopulation (emphasis added by me). The Lucy Pet Foundation’s founder, Joey Herrick, created the commercial. The mission of The Foundation is to reduce pet overpopulation by having mobile spay/neuter clinics across the country and to support causes that benefit animal welfare.
