The Other Members Of Our Family

Hi pals,

I thought it was about time you met the other half of my family - my human sisfur and her husband (SIL).   You've heard me talk about SIL (real name is Ken) before because whenever something goes wrong with the puter, M yells for SIL to HELP!   He has bailed us out of more trouble!    The lady in Pink is my human sister, Kim.   They adopted two new kitties a week ago (Tucker on the left) and Tanner on the right).  

Saturday night they invited M & D and SIL's parents to their house to celebrate D's 80th birthday, Sisfur & SIL's 17th anniversary, a belated anniversary of SIL's M & D, and to celebrate the arrival of Sisfur and SIL's new kitties (Tanner & Tucker)!   

Can you believe that I wasn't even invited!!!!    Everyone had a good time cept me!    M said it wouldn't be fair for me to go there yet since Tanner and Tucker are still getting used to their new surroundings and humans.

Aren't they cute kitties?   Both are rescues.  One is about 1 1/2 years old and the other about 2 years old (M said she can't remember which one is the oldest - hehe - she's senile you know!).   M said I will get to meet them in a few weeks after they are fully settled in their new home.

So now you know our small family.  Next time I talk about SIL and sisfur, you will know who they are.    

M says she's going to try to post for me more often.  Sure.......we'll see how well she does.   She'd better, cuz I'm missing out on stuff in the CB and also Twitter.

Until next time,

Graduation Day - Thankful Thursday

Hi Pals,

Whoopie - I've GRADUATED.     After almost 2 years, I have finally reached my goal weight of 12.0 pounds.  Actually my real goal was 11.75 (which I did reach), but then I developed an intolerance for the kibble on the diet food.   It was decided to take me off the diet food and put me on prescription diet duck - wet and kibble.   

M says I'm still going to have to be weighed at home once a week so we can keep a handle on the weight.   The vet and M don't want me to mushroom upwards again.  he he   

M and I are thankful to our vet, Dr. LaFond at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for suggesting I lose this weight to keep me a healthy kitty.   I am feeling great now - more active, and even play a bit more (although I've never been one to play a lot).   

We are also thankful that I was put on Hills Metabolic Weight Loss Solution while I was losing weight.  It was an easy diet to be on as all the food was measured every day for me and there was no question as to how much I was going to be fed.   (I am not being paid to mention their name in this blog - this is my own idea).

We are also thankful to @PepiSmartDog's human (Michele) for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop again this week.   Join us and met some new pals.

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop - Window Wiffies

Hi Pals,

With the ongoing heat wave that we and everyone in the US has been having, M was extra kind to me and opened a window in the sunshine for one whole hour today so I could sniff and soak up the puddle.   Wow - was it wonderful.    I have only been outside on my harness and leash two (2) times this entire summer.   We're all waiting for this heatwave to end - hopefully starting next Monday.

I have joined Fiona's (The Cat On My Head) Blog Hop.   Go over and take a peek at many of the great blogs that have joined this hop. Join us - all anipals are welcome.    We are so grateful to the Fiaona for doing this faithfully every week.   it's been fun and we've met some really great new pals.

Selfie Sunday Blog Hop - Profile ?

Hi pals,

Welcome to my Sunday selfie.  he he   What can I say - project was a "Fail" this week.    M snapped several pictures and not one of them is decent.  Oh well, at least they aren't as bad as the one of me with Bunny Ears - remember that one.
Hmmm, this one makes me look like an old man cat with grey hair!  YIKES

Regardless of the outcome, we're continuing on with The Cat On My Head's Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.   We all need a good laugh now and then, so this is the now!    Maybe next week will be better.

Thankful Thursday - New Hidey Hole

Hi Pals,
You all know how I LOVE my hidey hole under the throw on the sofa in the living room - right?    Well, as you can see from above, I have a new one now.   It's not quite as nice as the one in the living room, but this one is located downstairs in our family room where I can really hide out.

Sorry I've been missing again - same ole story.  M's back and also rotator cuff in shoulder are continually hurting.  She says all the humidity is rough on her too. So doing a lot of typing at her desk is too painful.   We'll do what we can to visit, when we can.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

I'm joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday blog hop again this week. Go check out their blog - there is something very unique in it today.    Our thanks to Michele (Pepi's mom) for hosting the blog hop again this week.  

Stay cool pals.

Caturday Art Blog Hop with Athena The Cat Goddess

Hi Pals,

I'm joining the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by Athena The CatGoddess.   Our thanks to Athena and her mom for hosting this every week.

The above picture was used once before as it's one of M's favorites.  But this time we put it in Photoshop  Elements 10 and clicked on a filter called Scalaped Edge.   That gave it the frame like appearance around the edges.   It was all real simple.    We tried out  several other filters, but decided to leave the picture like it was.   

I hope we can manage to do the link right this time.   We have never accomplished linking up before this and always had to ask Athena's mom to help us out.   I hope it works now.   Keep your paws crossed.

Good News - Vet Visit Was Worthwhile & Selfie Blog Hop

Hi Pals,

I forgot to tell you what I weighed last week when I went to the vet.  I weighed in at 12.1 pounds.   Pals, I have dropped from the starting weight of 19 pounds.   See how good I look:

The vet would like me to be 11.75 so I don't have much to lose yet.    M is not sure if she wants me that low - she wants a little meat on my bones in case I get sick.    But, if  I can consistently hold at 11.9 or 12, M will be happy.   But I guess I'll have to be weighed frequently - bummer.   We use a  baby scale here at home, and I'm pretty good about sitting in it - as long as I get a treat after.  he he

I'm joining Selfie Sunday blog hop again this week.   Check out  all the neat blogs that are part of this large blog hop.   Join the fun.  

Once again we apologize for going missing so much. M now has rotater cuff problems and typing at her desk isn't working very well - and her back doesn't like it either.  She had bought an IPad a few months ago with the thought of being able to lay in bed different times of the day and still get work done.  Well, that hasn't been good for the rotater cuff problem and makes it worse.   So she says she can only do what she can do and no more.  Sigh!   I guess half a typist is better than no typist - right?

We suggest following my blog via email - then you will know when I have posted something.   Sorry we are not very dependable.

Love you all,
