Happy Tuesday, Tuesday Show and Tails, Maxine Cracks Me Up


Happy Tuesday I have not been very happy with this fellow. He has been acting up and being a jerk. He has been stealing regular cat food from Daphne than puking and crying to get more food. He is on a strict weight loss food but since I can not monitor him constantly and we can not deprive the other kitty from her food, it is frustrating. The vet office laughed and said he isn't stupid. Why would he want to eat his bland food when he can eat full fat? Unfortunately, I do not see this as a laughing matter. I do not want him to die young. It is frustrating. So when we get appointments for our girls Lulu and Mollie to be spayed at CSU Vet Clinic I may check into finding him a different vet. I am normally very happy but it worries me. March 16th would have been Rose's birthday, She passed away from kidney disease but Boots, my boy passed away on her birthday in 2012. He had diabetes, but on an extreme happy note, all three of these special felines made me happy as well as my children through the years.

Wow did we have a wild floral sofa back in 2001. Rose was so small. She was always very petitie. She had the most beautiful jade green eyes, and she was a quirky kitty. I believe had she been a person, she would have been left handed. She had a mean left hook when the other kitties bugged her. I will always miss you, Rose. Happy Birthday to you at the Rainbow Bridge.  You always made us all so HAPPY.

My boy Boots went to the Rainbow Bridge March 16, 2012. There is not a day that I don't think of him, remember his kind heart or his funny habits. He was unique and a one of a kind gentleman feline. I often think he might have been an angel in disguise and that is how I will always remember him. He was born on our wedding anniversary and I paid a lady $35 for him as a gift to give Rebekah on her birthday, but he took a shine to me so I spent all the time I Had with him as a sweet and dear friend. He loved to pose for photos and when the girls were small they loved dressing him in costumes and hats and glasses. Let me say this, Mister Kitty and Rose, would not allow anyone to pose them, dress them up or wear accessories. They would bite, scratch and make a ruckus. Boots was a different sort. I will always love and miss him.

Perhaps one day Angela will host Tuesday Show and Tails again.  


Having pets to bring joy to your life has always been special for me. As a child my father let me adopt an abandoned kitten. Unfortunately, she was wild and was run over. I had two poodles Gigi and her daughter Renee. They were beautiful girls and so much fun to be with. My parents had two canaries, Elmer and Oliver. They lived long lives and gave us all great joy with their singing. Through the years my hubby and I have had many sweet fur babies. So celebrating them all on Happy Tuesday is a great happiness for me. 

Maxine has opinions on everything. This is one that is hard to disagree with her on ! Ha Ha Ha - some chores I would rather leave and never do. Others give me joy. So I agree here and always  love Maxine and her sassy attitude.

Our cat bro Bert has been on a special food and a diet for most of his life with us. Mom had to start feeding the cats differently when he started that special food. They eat twice a day, and separately so no one can steal food. You can't teach a cat to not eat something, so it works for us. It would be nice to leave out a bowl of food for them to eat when they want, but it isn't possible when one eats everything in sight.

Our Angel Little Bit was on a special diet the last few years of her life. Being the only baby we had it was easy to keep her on that diet. They will eat the good food if they can.

Remembering our babies is a good thing. We do that too.

I love Maxine. I love her take on chores too. So funny.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Anne. Love and hugs. ♥

Happy Heavenly birthday, dear Rose! And what a painful anniversary, remembering your precious Boots. (*HUGS*)
I don't blame you one bit for being concerned. I believe with all my heart that Caraleigh passed too soon from Tom all the time giving her (human) food scraps, pizza, etc. He swore he wouldn't do it again, but I catch him all the time feeding Macie Ann under the table. When the girls have their annual in July, I may ask the vet to have a 'talk' with him.

Poor kitty, food changes are most difficult, especially with bland food. Maxine nailed it as usual.

Awww poor kitty- try isolating him when he is fed so he cannot get to the fatty food? Hugs to you and your family!

I, too, was going to suggest feeding the cats in separate rooms while they have different foods. It's easier to eat the bland stuff when you don't have to see the good stuff. Maybe kitty can have a tasty treat now and then? Good luck with the special diets. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

Sending you hugs as you remember Boots and Rose. There is a surefit cat feeder that works with a microchip, you could get that so Mr. Kitty wouldn't be able to access it that way. Not sure of the price, but ebay probably has some previously used ones a lot cheaper. XO

Oh how sweet....they are adorable.

We have the same thing here, the cats on full fat food have to be kept in a separate area of the house from those on diet food.
