Default What to do, what to do.......

Ok. I'm currently housesitting for a couple of friends ( back story to long to tell here) which means I've got three cat's on my hands; one is skinny and athletic, ones a bit on the chubby side, and the one I'm posting about.......

The one and a half cat in a one cat suit.....

Does anyone offer gastric bypass surgery for cat's??? If they do, I've got a prime candidate.......

Pardon the blurry picture, but here are my two "cats" *cough* I mean er, BRATS!
Yes they're dogs, but I just couldn't wait for an opportunity to share my bratty pups, Pablo and Lizzie.

My cat Meatloaf. This is what happens when you keep jumping on my workbench when I am using a Sharpie.

Here is a pic of us hanging out. I am suprised we get along as well as we do. He can't see that ELO was basically a spinoff of the Beatle's orchestral period that really started with Sgt. Pepper. He seems to think they were more heavily influnced by The White Album. Cats are so stupid.

Pat, are you saying that beings that are not the "average size of their species"
need to be surgically resized?


I don't trust you on that

The beloved cat we (we here means "my sister") had when I was a kid was
-albeit on the tallish side -
still the heavy weight cat fight champion in our neighborhood
Ground clearance was always a term she struggled with spelling let's say,
but boy she could hunt.. small dogs mostly LOL
Sorry JT couldn't let that pass (it's indeed true.. she hated small dogs)

I'm a dog person myself luckily mine was big enough to not be targeted
but he still was afraid of her!..
german sheppard ~31" shoulder height afraid of a cat less than a third his weight..
what a chicken!

Oh great Pat .. Now I miss my dog again and that chubby furball of a cat

LOOL yeah that cat used to go after the tone arm no matter what I was playing
and if the cover was down she sat on it until it cracked, THEN whacked the tone arm!
(the reason I got me a Sharp RP117)
So musical taste she had none to speak of either

I had a coyote pit bull mix that loved being out in the garage with me working on stuff. She would be in the engine compartment watching me wrench, or under a car with me. I can't tell you how many times she got spray painted when I would clear out the nozzle on a spray can of paint. And she literally wore her paint jobs proudly. God, I still miss her. My 2 labs (yellow male and black female) won't even go near the garage. The all black cat that adopted us likes mousing in the shop. His name is Tacos, because the black lab wants to eat him.
