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.

Mario

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 http://thecatonmyhead.com/fiona-rocks-purple-hearts/ 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,

Mario

What a week and Sunday Selfie Blog Hop



Hi Pals,

Guess you can tell by the picture I got hauled off to the vet again.  M says my look says it all.   I not happy.

I was frowing up for about 2 days and M decided I must have a hairball stuck somewhere, so on Thursday M & D stuffed me into the PTU, shoved me in the car, and off we went to the vet.  M and  D do give me hairball stuff to take, but it was not doing the job this time because M does not give me enough of it.

Pals, it was horrible this time cuz the man vet poked me with a needle and stole my blood, then he poked me with another needle full of stuff to calm my tummy.  It was pawful.  (Now Mario - It wasn't that bad.  They are so good with you there and gentle - it wasn't that bad - you didn't even sing the song of your people.  Remember, the vet even said "Mario is such laid-back kitty - he is a pleasure to have come in.")

The vet also told M to  wait 5 hours after I have frown up before she should feed me again.   She was feeding me about 1 hour after frowning up.  Now no matter how much I plead with her, she should not give in.  

My selfie this week is me looking up  at M pleading for food cuz I'm starving.   Don't you feel sorry for me?

I'm joining TheCatOnMyHead's Blog Hop today.   We will try to get around to all of you.   Thanks to TheCatOnMyHead kitties for hosting this blog hop every Sunday. 



My tummy did clear up and I'm back to normal again.   I sure hope I don't have to go back again.  (But Mario - they like you there.  You know everyone makes a big fuss over you, talks to you, and loves seeing you.)  If you are new to our area and need a good vet clinic, I highly recommend the The Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon  M said all of her kitties for the 40+ years they have lived here have been taken there, and we have never been unhappy. 

By the way, my tummy cleared up and I stopped frowing up.

Happy Independence Day USA and Selfie Sunday Blog Hop


Hi Pals,

We hope you had a good 4th of July Celebration wherever you were.   Ours was rather quiet, at least in our house.   The neighborhood was far from quiet - boomers going off for about 2 hours.   Geeeesh!   How can the humans stand all that noise?   I ran for cover in the basement.   The peeps were down in the family room anyway watching TV, so I cuddled in a corner.  I won't even sit on a lap when I hear them - just want to be alone.

Today we are joining A Cat On My Head's Blog Hop for a Sunday selfie.   I asked M to make mine look like the holiday we were celebrating, so she found some boomers to put there.   Fortunately, they are the silent kind, so I don't mind them being there.  he he
