A little while back Janet and Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head pulled my name in a random drawing and I won a pair of custom-made cat socks from OurSock.com. They have arrived and they are marvelous! They feel silky to the touch! I had a really tough time trying to decide which of our seven kitties would be chosen to grace my new custom socks. Well, I couldn’t have picked anyone but my dear sweet Midge for this as she is my oldest and first kitty. Here is the photo I chose to send:
And I am so pleased and excited to share the beautiful finished product:
And here we have a view of the back side and the front side:
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! 😀
