Kitty cats! Pets are the best support.



Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, my name is Mousecat and I am a cat addict.

I live alone and I just have to give a public forum shoutout to my two kitties for being my crutch through all the post-op BS (and life BS in general). I have an (almost) 10 year old boy named Mouse who I rescued from a Baltimore City shelter at 8 weeks. He was very sickly and I nursed him to health. He has been everywhere with me and is my rock. My other boy is Nugget who is a year and a half and I found him in my mom's backyard at 3 weeks old and bottlefed. He had a number of near-death scares and I am embarrassed to say how much $$ I spent keeping him alive. He is my goofy boy. I just don't know what I would do without them. Mouse know when I am sad or sick and will be glued to me the whole time. Nugget is a derp and makes my home joyful.

Any special fur kids in your life? I am so grateful for their furry little existence.

I have 1 cat who is an 18 year old kitten. Completely crazy. I also have 2 dogs, 2 horses and 3 ducks. That is in addition to all the wild ducks , magpies, herons, cockatoos and other native bird life in the garden.

Last year we had to say goodbye to 2 of our special pets, 1 dog and 1 cat

One 2-legged Tomkitten, 2 4-pawed girls named SQUEAKY and CASSIE. They make my life beautiful at the most, a madhouse at the least. But I admit it, I am pussycat-whipped, Squeaky,is peeved at me, I didn't go to Wal-Mart and buy her Kitty Crack (Temptation Cat Treats) I swear she let out a sigh when I said she has plenty kinds of Friskies sitting in her food bowl, No romance, No joy, Its just Blah and she feels she deserves better.

You are correct! She's also getting pretty bossy in her old age, 14yo.

I have Ceilidh who will be 12 this summer. She's a roly poly cat and thinks she needs to be shaped like a football. Then there's Haggis who is feisty and adventurous. She'll be 11. Then there are my two puppy loves, Peaches (10) and Turtle (3). All of them were rescues and are my reason for getting up in the morning.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
