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

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

Celebrating 100 Sunday Selfies blog hops with The Cat on My Head!

I’m not actually celebrating 100, but my friends the Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head are. Today is their 100th Sunday Selfies blog hop. I’m very, very late but I couldn’t miss celebrating this milestone with them. I even planned ahead and took these photos a while back, but what can I do? I have no thumbs and sometimes the mom is just busy doing human things.

These selfies were taken in our hotel room at La Quinta Inns and Suites on our way back from BlogPaws. I’ll tell you a little more about our stay later … Continue reading
