D I E T S

No, not me. I am not on a diet, but many of my fellow blogging buddies are on diets. Some to get thinner, some because they have rocks in their systems. Mum says so far I am doing OK, although Grampie says I am fat. Hmph. Mum says I am not and so far the VET hasn't said anything. But I don't gets overfed either.

But if my buddies end up on a severe diet you could end up looking like this. Not skin and bones, but just bones. That would not be good.
Much better to have some meat on our bones.

  1. Our v-e-t has been very watchful of the big cats' weight at our house. He doesn't want Gizzy or Jasmine to get diabetes or rocks, so both have slimmed down. Gizzy used to be a hefty 15-1/2 pounds and he weighs about 14 now, and Jasmine was 14-1/2 and now she weighs 12. Of course, being the young active thing that I am, I am perfect. As are you, Derby, I am quite sure.

  3. I'm with you on this, Derby. The people have been getting out that whirlybird toy almost every day, and it is *wearing me out!!! Therefore, I believe I should be fed more. So far, this hasn't happened. But the whirlybird lost two feathers last night!

  4. Precious says she was a super model when Momma found her, that is why she was so skinny. Now she has plenty meat on her bones, but she claims it is all fur. Ha!!!

  5. Derby, if you are going to be the VP, you need meat on your bones! After all VP's need to be tough...

  6. Derby, thanks for the lesson. This has been very informative. I am going to show my Mommie the picture of the skeleton and ask for MORE food. I would not want to turn into the cartoon Skeletor! Aaaaaahhhhhh! I scared myself, just a little.

  9. I was just right when Victor arrived. The vet said so; she said not to let me gain anofur pound. Now I've lost a couple ounces... because he's always pouncing and chasing me! I'm sure it's stress, too! Be glad you're an only cat, Derby.
    PS Pictures from Chicago, right?
