Cat status

They are healthy and their weight is stable. TMF weighed in at 15.3 pounds, Mencken weighed in at 12.8 pounds -- good weights for both cats (that's about 3 pounds lighter than TMF was at his fattest, and Mencken has trouble keeping food down so that's a really good weight for him, about a pound heavier than last year).

Other than the requisite howling in the car, they were good kitties, who let the vet poke and prod them without a problem even when he was sticking needles in them. They didn't shred a thing, not a feather was mussed, though fur certainly was flying in the air as I petted them to keep them calm (they shed like crazy when stressed!).

Now, maybe by tonight they'll actually let me come near them again...

  1. Outch! your cats weight more than my dog! LOL

    I thought penguins ate cats.. guess not....

  2. Your cats sound an awful lot like my one. But I think my one is going to yowl like the two of yours together when I try to get him to the vet today, and I'm NOT looking forward to it. AT ALL.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
