The Secret is Out: Why My Weight Loss Diet Didn’t Work

Did you know that the secret to weight loss for kitties is the same as for humans? Read on to find out why my cat diet for weight loss didn't work.

I have a funny story to tell you. It’s been a secret but I guess it won’t be after I tell you about it.

If you’ve ever met me or really looked at some of my photos, you know I’m not the most svelte kitty out there. I’ve never had the slim waist like my brofurs Echo and Ocean. This is evident even in this photo from the BlogPaws conference in Phoenix in 2016 when I weighed about 11 fluffy pounds.

BlogPaws Conference, Phoenix, AZ, 2016 - Why my cat diet for weight loss didn't work

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a napping kind of kitty. If I were a human, I guess you’d call me a couch potato.

BlogPaws and Spring are Inspiring Us to Get Outdoors

Between spring being on the verge of happening and the BlogPaws Conference coming up next week, mom has gotten a bee in her bonnet. Check out the post to see what she's up to.

OMC! I bet you can’t believe I’m posting but I just had to tell you some things.

Between spring being on the verge of happening and the BlogPaws Conference coming up next week, mom has gotten a bee in her bonnet. She says that even though we aren’t going to BlogPaws this year, it is inspiring her. She has gotten out all my harnesses and made me start wearing them. I got really used to wearing one when I got to go to BlogPaws in 2016. I haven’t worn one in a while so they feel a little strange. I was slinking a little at first but lots of treats helped me get over that pretty quickly!

I wonder when I’ll get to go out in the yard on a leash. That dog that hates cats still lives next door and mom is a little concerned about … Continue reading

Wallace is a Girl — Must Take Selfies

Mom and Wallace take a selfe together

Hey, hey, hey! Look who’s here! It has been so quiet around here for us kitties. Mom has been really busy taking care of other pets, running around “doing research” for her other blog and just generally neglecting us. She hardly ever has time to nap with me in the comfy chair and I really miss that. Maybe with colder weather coming we can snuggle more. Sometimes, I resort to loving on her while she is working at the computer.

Speaking of colder weather, today was a strange day. Mom told me the weatherman said it was going to rain but it was so sunny and beautiful this morning. I laid on the back of the couch in a wonderful sun puddle and soaked it all in just in case the weatherman was right. Sure enough, about one in the afternoon it was like mom turned the lights … Continue reading

If They Won’t Give You Bacon, Get Your Own

Really, it wasn't me! Christy washing her face.

Furiends, I have a tale to tell you. I think my bacon loving furiend, Sammy, will especially appreciate it.

My Bacon Tale

Recently, mom made herself a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich for lunch. When she went to sit down to eat it, as always, I sat next to her and stared. That usually gets me at least one or two bites of whatever she is eating. I stared and stared but I got no reward. She ate the whole thing without giving me one single bite!

Mom set her empty plate on the table and went to sit in the comfy chair to rest for a while. Lucky for me she fell … Continue reading

Can You Believe It’s My 2nd Blogoversary?

It's my 2nd blogoversary! Can you believe I've been a blogging kitty for two whole years? Come join me on a little walk down memory lane.

Today marks two years that I have been a blogging kitty. That’s about 1/8 of an average kitty’s lifespan! Seems pretty hard to believe and time has just flown by. Mom and I talked about making a big deal and having a big party but we decided instead to just thank you all for being here and being our friends.

Why I Went to the Vet on My Road Trip

Continue reading to find out why I went to the vet on my big road trip to BlogPaws in Arizona and to learn more about stomatitis in cats.

I never did tell you why I went to the vet during my big road trip to the BlogPaws conference in Arizona. Mom was waiting for some information from my vet on stomatitis in cats but he hasn’t had time to put it together. Since today is Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day, mom thought it would be a good time to go ahead and tell you about it anyway.

Stomatitis in Cats

Mom has known for a while that I had gingivitis or probably even stomatitis. Stomatitis in cats is an inflammation of the gums and mucous membranes. It can be very painful. Mom tells me no one seems to know what causes feline stomatitis but that it may be an allergic reaction to the plaque on our teeth. All vets and researchers know is that it is an abnormal immune system response. They suspect that … Continue reading

My July Instagram Favorites

I really love Instagram and my Instagram followers. There are so many great photos of all my pals. Here are the photos I posted in July that I like best.

I really love Instagram and my Instagram followers. Instagram has so many great photos to see of all my pals. Here are my July Instagram favorites, but I posted lots more, so go take a look if you haven’t visited in a while.

This photo is one of the last ones mom took in my hotel room at the Sheraton Grand at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, AZ, when I was on my big road trip. I think it is my favorite of the month. The room had such pawsome sun puddles and Mom says it is that great natural light that really shows off my eyes.

A sneak peek at tomorrow’s #selfie post. Be sure to visit my #blog on … Continue reading
