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

Looking good, Mario!! We've missed your posts, but we totally understand. We hope M is on the mend soon. Rotator cuffs can be painful.

You are looking extra handsome Mario. I am sorry about Mom;s rotator cuff, shoulder problems are awful. Is there a program that types when you talk, I know there used to be a Dragon point and speak or something like that.

Austin Towers said...

Mario I reckon that's a good fighting weight buddy! You are the same as me 😃

World Purrs said...

We're really proud of you, Mario. You are doing such a good job of looking slim and trim.

Don't feel bad. Even though she doesn't type for us, Jan's aches and pains always seem to interfere with our posting too. Humans!

Simba said...

Purrs and kisses for your Mom for getting better. Shoulders are such troubleso,e joints. My Mom once messed up her shoulder because her desk chair had arms. Would you believe it?

Mario, great work on the weight loss. I am going to stick my neck out and say 12 lbs sounds perfect for you. 10 sounds downright skinny! i boy needs a smidge of reserve there.

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

Looking good, Mario! I'm sending purrs to your human - rotator cuff pain is bad. My human knows something about that from a few years ago!

Fur Everywhere said...

Hi Mario! You are doing an amazing job of losing the weight. Keep up the great work - you are almost there! We love your photos today.

Please give purrs and hugs to your mom from us. Our Mom is having a lot of problems with her arm, too. It goes numb/tingly every night when she is helping us visit blogs. She thinks it might be a pinched nerve or something - hers says it is annoying. We hope your mom can get some relief from her pain. <3

Marie Symeou said...

Great job about the weight! You look great :) Hope your mom feels better soon.

Purrs xx

That's pawsome news about your weight! Maybe mom needs to try your diet. The one's she'd tried haven't worked very well.
