Tummies on Tuesday


Cloud: Mom has started calling me a portly princess. I always thought it was good to be a princess.
Niko:Yes, but it's the um..portly..part, that's a problem, Cloud.
Cloud:What does portly mean?
Niko:I think it means that 7 month old female kittens shouldn't weigh over 10 pounds!*

*number calculated using the highly innacurate method of weighing mommy both with and without a kitten on the highly innacurate scale. But Niko shows as weighing about 8 pounds, which is just a tiny bit more than what he weighed when he went in for his neuter (7.5 lbs) 2 weeks ago. And Cloud feels/looks about 2 pounds heavier.

You may just have a different body style Cloud. I am heavier then both Charybdis & Socks but I have a stockier more muscular build (I can also jump higher and out run them). ~Scylla, who is not a cow no matter what Daddy says

We don't think you are portly at all. Have you seen the newest member of our family? ~Socks & Charybdis

Well, we sometimes call our Spunky Doodle, "Chunky Spunky." She's is not thin, that's for sure! She likes getting weighed though--she'll go on the scale and stay for awhile all on her own. You can watch a video of her on the scale at her blog: http://karen.pnn.com/5124-cat-corner-meow or on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCv7Kn7LzGI

Cloud, I get the same thing around here! I am now on a diet, which is no fun at all!

The humans should know better than to joke about a girls weight. Shame on them. We think you look just right.

it's just a number on a scale princess. if you go my mommy's method, then if your furs feel tight you need to lose weight.

Oh Cloud, I do not think you are portly! You have a very cute, girlish figure.
