I am owned by 2 lovely cat ladies, Squeaky who must be a distant cousin of Mr Freddy as they are marked much the same with the lovely white paws and her sister( well probably half-sister because they may not be offspring of the same tomcat) Cassie is a dark mackerel tabby but the fur on her sides instead of being stripe bars

are perfectly swirled like paisley cloth. She is equally as pretty as her sister but Miss Squeaky has a very out-going personality and I think Cassie has played second-fiddle their entire life. Cassie is very sweet tempered and one on one just as loving if not more so than her sister. Squeaky does not,like storms, our code name is Thunder Monster, while she hides Cassie will crawl on my,lap, lay down and purr. Can you tell I'm pussycat-whipped? Ah but the girls brighten Tomkitten(my human son) and my life. I'll have to enter their pictures one of these days. They were shelter cats first, we call it the"***** pound" and were about 1 year old when adopted, we do still argue who adopted who---They act like they chose us!

I am captivated by the fundamental difference in cat and dog ownership. We cat people always talk about getting owned by a cat whereas people own dogs. I would honestly rather be owned by a cat. Cats are not as independent as many people often perceive. They just have different ways of expressing life in a group or pack. If you take time to understand the nuances, bonds between cats and people become just as strong.

I guess it should be no surprise I raised a lazy obese cat. For some reason, I see myself in the cat. I don't think he can jump as high as the other cats so he probably gets left out by the other cats. He also gets excited when he gets fed.

Fantastic weight loss on your part! That took some real dedication! :-) Love the kitty too.

I had a friend with a diabetic and very overweight cat. She was 16 years old and the vet said just to leave her be at this point. Let her enjoy her food and her waning years. She died peacefully in her sleep at 18.

I’m single/divorced for a decade and I’ve always loved cats! I got my first cat for my 3rd birthday and she lived 17 years. I’ve had cats ever since. I currently have 2 cats that are both 7 years old. I got them for my son’s 8th birthday. He’s 14 almost 15. I haven’t met many men who like cats around where I live.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
