Re: sortofMIA

OK then, glad to hear you are feeling better, Mr. Train. I didn't know you had been ill.

I sure wish I had some superman skills and could go after these trolls and spammers. Some people just aren't happy unless they succeed in making others unhappy.

I'm feeling better because we got the mass spammer registrations blocked over on the F@H Community Site. It feels like I have my life back.

Oh, absolutely. I would never even think to question your wisdom about our furry friends.

I also know I am not telling you anything you don't know that these feline friends of ours are just as individual as we humanoids are. As soon as one thinks they know how we will respond, based on their knowledge of other humans, we'll surprise them.

I'm just introducing Miss Midget who pretty much always defied anyone's idea of how a feline might behave in a given situation, but I know you know all about that kind of contradiction.

I meant they were (apparently) available to be rubbed by the photographer. Would never touch without becoming acquainted and certain of welcome.

I'm sorry about your loss of Miss Midget. Our Bubbles is 17. She's been diabetic since 2003 except for a few months early in 2007 and since September 10 of this year. Not worrying about hypoglycemic episodes is great while it lasts. Achieving control through diet eliminated that concern for you.

Edit: Upon rereading your comments, I suspect Miss Midget's tummy rubbing rules applied to the photographer and you weren't telling me what I thought you were.

Yes, most of the time. The diabetic kitty we had to say our farewells to very recently, Miss Midget, was an exception. She would show off her belly, but you needed heavy skin protection gear if you wanted to try out that "rub me" theory. She was a ... carefully and only if I give you the nod ... gently rub me behind the ears kitty, but keep your mitts off my belly girl.

To gain permission, you had to offer your hand and let her inspect. Depending on her mood, she would either finally rub the side of her head on your hand or attempt to bite it. You needed to be very quick to brave this. I loved that kitty, but she was probably the most diabolical feline friend I have ever had.

She developed diabetes. Because of her age and nature, she is the one we chose to manage with a low carb diet. Vet said we won and did an amazing job, so that can definitely work.

Anyway, here is the Midget belly before she took off about four pounds (18 to 14) on a large frame kitty. Not bad, really.

She really knew how to fill up the bed!

Chigger's Belly several years ago


This pic doesn't show how round she actually became. She has blue eyes, which usually photograph as red demon eyes, not sure how we got that color in this photo. She is half Siamese (or similar) and would be pointed if she were not so fat. We are seeing that start to come out as she diets, no pics yet.

Chauncey looks on in awe over yet another Chigger messcapade. Chig has always acted quickly and then wondered "how did that happen?"

Chigger has been on a weight loss diet for nearly two years now and she has made progress. It gets slower, of course, as her weight goes down, just as it does for humanoids.

Lately, since she's kind of a puppy cat who follows her persons around, I have been deliberately walking around the house, coaxing her to follow ... up hallways and back, up and down the stairs. She'll do it for awhile and then she seems to catch on, gets in her bed and just watches.

If I wait awhile, though, she forgets.

Her slow metabolism appears to be genetic. Somewhere I have pictures of her mother and a sister. You can certainly tell they are family.

She is doing well as far as we can tell, though, just probably will never be considered slender.

A little update. Saw my surgeon today. He was pleased, mentioned about six things he doesn't see, none of which would be good to see. Actually smiled and said I was doing great.

Destroyed my illusions he would say I'm ready for weight lifting, though. He said give the heavy lifting at least two more weeks and then proceed cautiously. I asked, "What is heavy?" He said, "At this point, anything over 10 pounds."

Oh gee, I have to put the cat down.

He would likely say its hard to keep a figure like his, and then allude to delivering buns of steel.

"Cobble cobble cobble"

A turkey who was an old-time movie fan say?

"Gable, Gable, Gable!"

A turkey with a sore throat say?

"Gargle Gargle Gargle"

A turkey with a sore leg say?

"Hobble hobble hobble."

A football turkey say?

"Huddle, huddle, huddle"

A dieting turkey:

"'Obble 'Obble 'Obble"

A turkey who argues a lot:

"Squabble squabble squabble."

What does Dr. Seuss' turkey say?

"Tweedle beetle paddle battle puddle wobble hobble gobble."

Then there was the dizzy Turkey who just went...

"Wobble Wobble Wobble!"

Ah, so you've had enough of turkey's, like the ones here?

My niece is doing it this year, I will do my usual, and bring my homemade humus, I can't budget anything else this year, but that's fine because everybody else does it up! I feel very fortunate that I have it off, because I could just as easily have ended up working...

I am hoping that next year I have another smoker and can do a turkey then...

No, but I doubt we'll have turkey. My two offspring like cooking much better than I do, so they take that over for holidays now and it is never traditional. It is the time for them to try out the recipies they have been collecting.

So, who knows for this year.
