Thankful Thursday Blog Hop -

Hi Pals,

That's my human daddy holding me.   He captured me again to trim my nails.   He says I'm a good boy and sit very patiently.   i'm thankful he can trim my nails because I'm never afraid when he does it.  Now M can quit complaining about how my nails dig into her skin!

My humans are very thankful that the snowstorm of yesterday into last night stayed about 60 miles north of us.  They are sick of winter.  i just want spring to come so I can go outside again in my harness and leash.

Join our blog hop - it's fun and you meet new pals too.

Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - Hammick

Hi Pals,

I totally LOVE my hammick.   About a year ago M bought one for me.   She put it in the living room right away.   I used it some, especially at night when I'm on patrol.   But my favorite is right here by the patio door where I have sun puddles and bird/squirrel TV.   I'm very thankful that M and  D bought it for me.

I'm thankful for @PepiSmartDog for hosting the blog each and every Thursday.  Check out his site sometime.  It's pretty cool.   Pepi was one of my first friends on Twitter and I was so impressed because he would go out on photo shoots with his mom and had a wardrobe full of clothes (for real) to model.  His mom is very involved with rescues in Australia, so their blog always has something interesting going on.

We're also very thankful for Marq over at Marqs Animals   and want to wish her a very Happy Birthday.   Unfortunately, her internet went out, so I'm not sure when she will see this.  But, we wanted her to know we love her and hope she has a wonderful birthday.   If you don't already know Marq, go over and introduce yourselves.  Marq has quite an assortment of anipals that she loves and cares for.   She is one very wonderful lady, who has done so much for the blogosphere in running auctions, and we're so happy she is our friend.

Now hop on the blog hop with us and have some fun.

Caturday Art Blog Hop

Hi Pals,

It's Caturday and that means it's the day to join Athena CatGodessAthena's  Caturday Art Work.   

M was fooling around again with Photoshop Elements 11, but she has no clue what she was doing.   She just hits different buttons to see what effects she can get.   ha ha - It's her original art!   It's embarrassing to me cuz I always end up looking strange!   A guy cat has to keep up his image for the lady cats - you know!   Well, if M keeps up with this kind of art work, my image is going to sink to the bottom of the well!

I insisted she now post the good picture of me so you all know what I should look like.   

What kitty wants blue fur anyway!

Thankful Thursday Bog Hop and #HillsPet Followup

Hi Pals,

Don't I  look thinner to you?   I have lost 1.4 pounds on the Hill's Prescription Metabolic Advanced Weight Loss Solution formula food.    I'm so thankful M put me on it because it didn't work for us to  simply feed me less.   Anyway, I thought it was time for me to show off my new body - the new slimmer Mario! Hills had sent me a package containing the items in the picture as a thank you for helping with their Awareness Campaign - and help  get the word out there.

The Give-away mentioned in my last post ends Monday, April 14th.   Hills was kind enough to grant an extension to the deadline date for the giveaway to those of us who were assigned the later dates in March - My original post was on March 28, 2014.  

Just scroll down and read the directions in my last blog post.   Be sure to give us your email address  so we can contact you.  Remember, your veterinarian will have to give his/her approval as this is a prescription diet.   Only 5 days left to take advantage of this $70 value in prescription diet food. 

If your vet does not carry this food and you live in the Green Bay, WI area, you can contact my vet  as they have it.  Click here 

I'm thankful that my vet lady suggested this program to me because I feel so much better.  I can really do the zoomies now and do - sometimes two times a day.   I for sure have more energy.

Now join @PepiSmartDog's Blog Hop.

No Way Am I A Tubby Tuxie #HillsPet

Hi Pals,

Did you know that 53% of dogs and 55% of cats in the US are considered overweight? That's more than half of the pet population.  

The number of dogs has increased by almost 40% and the number of cats has increased by almost 90%  Gasp! 

M and my vet lady say I was one of those Tubby Tuxies.   Last November our Vet Lady talked to M and suggested I try a new weight loss program:   Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.  The food is designed to speed up the metabolism and help give cats and dogs more energy. The pets are supposed to feel full and satisfied, but still lose weight. 

Prior to starting this program,  M had been sneaky and had cut back a little on the amount of food she was feeding me.   She was NOT successful.  I did not lose weight.   This program seemed like the answer!  M was hesitant at first because she says I'm a picky eater.  She was afraid I would not like the food, but she agreed to try the program.  

I LOVE the food and I can even eat the kibble.   (I had lost all my toothies to Stomotitis about 4 years ago.   M  always chose a kibble that was smaller in size so that I could still eat it.   I can easily chew this  kibble, although M says I really gum it to bits!  he he   

We are very happy with the Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, and are pleased to be part of this campaign.

This post is sponsored by Hill's.  I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, but Mario's Meowsings only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.   Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article. 

Here's a video that is cute but sad at the same time.  Unfortunately this video reminds M of how I was.  I didn't want to cooperate with anything involving activity.  Here's the Video of "One Big Kitty."  

Since being on the Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution program, I have more energy and like to play more than I did before.  I even get 2 treats a day on this program!  They are so yummy.   I feel better and M feels better knowing I'm slimming down.     

Remember last weekend when I said I had good news?  Well, Hill's is giving away 10 Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution trial kits for dogs or cats.  This is a $70 value.    BUT you MUST get your veterinarian's approval to get this kit. You will have to prove you have their approval.

Nothing Better Than An Easy Sunday

Hi Pals,

Nothing like a belly rub and a nap to start off Easy Sunday.  

Excuse me while I get back to the important business at hand - napping.

Oh, stay tuned for next Saturday when I have some exciting news!


Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Hi Pals,

Sorry we've been missing again.    What can I say.  My human slacks off now and then and says she "just can't keep up, and her back hurts, so I'm going to lay down with heat!"    Sigh!   It sure doesn't do much for  my social life.

Anyway, this is going to be a short post to let you all know we're alive and okay here.   I told M she must get me around today to read your blogs.  So, here was go..........  See you at your blog.
