Tabby Tuesday: Vets and Dieting

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Yep, you guessed it, I got stuffed in the PTU and hauled of to the Vet AGAIN!  Boy did I complain about it the whole way too.  Not to worry, I’m fine, I just had to get stuck for my annual vaccinations.  That part was not nearly as bad as the car ride and the advice from the Vet.  Once again the Vet mentioned that I’m a little over weight, by about 2 pounds. Big deal I say!

But since I’m not the only one here that could stand to lose a little we are all on a diet.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Precious went to the Vet last week, and she checked out just fine.  But the Vet said she is just a teeny little bit overweight, but just by a couple of ounces.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Gracie had put on some weight due to the steroids in her asthma medications and although her asthma hasn’t been bad at all, she is just having a difficult time dropping that unwanted weight.

So, we’re all dieting.  The good news is that we really seem to like our weight management food.  The bad news is that is seems to bother Sister Zoe and her food allergies.  So Dad has been having the challenge of trying to get 5 of us to eat one thing and Sister Zoe to eat the before-diet food.  Hey, I told Dad I could do both if that would help!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Oh Precious, we are so glad you checked out all right. We scream in the carrier too. Our poor doggie roommate has to go to the vet today.
    We know all about different cats getting different food. We all offer to eat each kind too. It is hard to lose that extra weight but we know all of you can do it.
    Have a really fun day and stay cool.

  2. Hilary

    Good luck with the diet! I think that was very nice of you to offer to eat both foods to help out….. You are a good sport!

  3. Simba

    Brian, I am amazed at how casually you were able to lie on the counter at the Vet’s!

    Maybe it is just the angle of the picture, but Gracie does look a little chubby there!

  4. Old Kitty

    Brave beautiful Brian!! Yay for your singing all the way to the vets! Awwwww!!! Me and Charlie hope you and adorable Precious and Gracie continue to enjoy your diet food! Hugs to gorgeous sisters Zoe and Dolly! We just know your dad will solve the eating arrangements soon! Yay! take care

    Oh, we know about diets here! Samson’s steroid treatments for his allergies have also made it difficult for him to lose the weight so we’re ALL on the diet. Good luck with the new feeding arrangements, I hope you can find something that works for all of you.

  6. Catherine

    Oh my stars ~ 2 lbs and a few ounces over weight??? My goodness, you all look perfect to Banjo and I. It never hurts having a little more to love we always say. 😉

    Good luck to Dad in getting everyone fed their own food. Ha!
    xo Catherine

  7. Hannah and Lucy

    Hannah wishes you hadn’t posted this today – we have been told she must see the vet before she can have any more tablets (steroids)!! Mum thought she was getting a bit heavier due to eating my leftovers but she’s suddenly thought oops steroids – which she is on for her asthma!! Now I’ll get nagged at too for leaving food for her to eat for me!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. Max the Quilt Cat

    I didn’t think that 2 pounds is much at all… but 2 ounces…. how do you measure 2 ounces… whew… that’s splitting hairs. Good luck with the diets pals….

    pawhugs and commiseration, Max

  9. Random Felines

    Mom tried cutting back without changing food for us. Everyone lost weight but the chubby girl that was SUPPOSED to lose weight. Mom has surrendered….. MOL

  10. Fuzzy Tales

    We’re glad you’ve all checked out fine! Weight schmeight. We think the vet is ridiculous for even mentioning *ounces*. Sheesh.

    The mom says good luck getting one food you all can eat. Even with just the two of us, we need different things (Nicki needs fibre, Derry doesn’t, one likes this, one likes that).

  11. diddleymaz

    Good luck with the dieting guys!
    We dont need to diet..but our Mum and Dad do!!
    love Commie and Blanco

  12. Admiral Hestorb

    I saw Sister Precious on her cam..in her bed!!!
    You alllook extra delectable to mommy. She’d love to hold and kiss each of you.

  13. Gin, Richard, Bailey and Angel

    You all look nice and healthy to us! Better to be a few ounces over than underweight.
    I hear ya, Bailey wimpers when he has to go to the Vet too, but they all love him and
    give him his favorite peanut butter treats, so he forgets why he was scared.

    Happy Tuesday to all furry and human friends.

  14. Debbie & Holly

    Brian, you look like you are just being so casual at the vet!! The kitties here would be up on the ceiling!! Everyone here is a few pounds overweight and Holly is always on a diet! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  15. cate

    Uh oh diets – I think you all look pretty good, but then I keep saying that about Milly and Poppet. They need to lose a few pounds, but I find it hard with two kitties eating out of the same bowls – they share each others, so who knows what each has eaten. Any tips on how you do it will be greatly appreciated. Glad everything else was fine :))

  16. Cathy

    You are looking mighty relax at the vets, Brian. I think more encounters with Da Bird will help you lose those 2lbs easily. And a whole lot more fun too!

  17. Bailey

    Awww, it doesn’t sound like a few ounces is a lot. It must be really hard to keep everyone away from the before-diet food, though!

    Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! 🙂

    Woofs & hugs,

    ~Bailey (Yep, I’m a girl!)

  18. Link Bartholomew

    Oh boy, I feel bad for all you guys! I know how this drill goes. So do my Aunt Beatrice and Uncle Irvin. Thing is, they never lose the weight, so they’re on a perpetual diet!

  19. Kwee Cats

    You so handsome, Brian. Your sisters sooooo pretty. We think maybe that v-e-t’s scales are messed up. Ooooorrrrr, they gots dollar money invester in the diet foods.

  20. Sparkle

    Since my human starves us to death is very careful about portions, our weights check out fine at the vet’s. In fact, I am underweight, and my human’s task is figuring out ways to get me to eat more!

  21. Junior & Orion

    We feel your pain. I, Junior, like most foods…..a little too much.

    I, Orion, like most foods too, but I don’t eat as much as my brofur. Plus Meowm still has not figured out if I have food allergies or if it is something else that causes me sometimes have really stinky poo and pull out my furs.

    Diets——-a never ending battle.

  22. Cathy Keisha

    OMC! It’s Precious! Tell your peeps a little extra weight is good for cats. If you haven’t heard about the cat who was almost abducted by a hawk, but was saved because he was a fat cat and the the hawk couldn’t carry him, let me know and I’ll send you the link.

  23. Tillie & Georgia

    Brian, while we are happy your Vet visit was OK,
    we sympathize that the Vet told you to lose weight!!!!!!
    Can’t the Vet see how handsome you already are?????
    Diet IS a four letter word ya know :/ heehee
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia

  24. Athena

    I haf to diet too! Mama doesn’t know how she’s going to do it while getting Kit to gain weight. You look so relaxed at the vet!

  25. Abby

    Brian
    We think you all are perfect just the way you are.
    But we hope that your Dad can find the best solution for all of you.

    purrs

  26. Mumsy, Chancy and Crew

    Oh, Brian we think eating both foods would be what we would volunteer to do too. We wish you all the best luck on the diet although we don’t think you are so much over weight. You all look very beautiful to us. Hugs and nose kisses

  27. caspersmom

    Ah yes Brian, I complain all the way to the Vet too. So glad you are O.K. but don’t know about dieting though. Cleo needs to, but I seem to be loosing weight without the diet. It’s always great to like the food you are eating diet or not. Mom got some new hairball stuff but don’t know if I like it yet or not.

  28. Clooney

    Oh I guess that means no Num-Nums for awhile…Well, it’s good you like your new food and I’m sure it will do the trick!

  29. GrammyMouseTails

    the “D” word.. a nasty 4 letter word.. ewww. I am happy you guys at least think it tastes good. I hope Daddy can find something for sister so she not longer itches.

  30. Devoted to Willow

    Brian maybe we need to have a cat weight lost club since all of our V-E-T’s suggest diets. This way a little fun could be added to the program of losing weight.

  31. siku marie

    You are such a big-hearted big brother to volunteer to make Zoe feel comfortable at mealtime! Can’t you do kitty kalestenics or play more turbo-track batting instead of dieting…you know, exercise kinds of stuff…maybe 15 minutes of strenuous zoomies?

    Glad to hear the vert visit went well for both you and Precious.

  32. Lisa and Baby

    We want to be sure and thank you for leaving kind words upon Jack’s passing over the Rainbow Bridge. Our cat and cat-loving friends are helping us immensely in recovering from the loss. Baby has deeply grieved, but is doing much better with right attention and love.

    Happy news! She’s a real cutie.
    I just asked my wife if she had ever run across your name while cross posting on FB. She said she hadn’t, but was amazed at how many mutual friends you two have. Also, tons of mutual friends with your friends.
