Hedges Cat Number Seven?

Or not!

Today as this post is aired, we'll be on our way to a neighboring town. We're taking Megan, our 13 year-old Maltese Poodle x Scottish Terrier to the parlor for her quarterly grooming. We're also taking Tigger, Emily's six-month-old kitten to be neutered. Fortunately the grooming and the operation both happen at the same place - the vet's surgery. 
 Emily's pretty kitten is in my bathroom. Chappie wasn't too sociable when I tried to introduce him to her! 

 Chappie will hopefully be more active playing with this ball in a tunnel

Meanwhile, we're fighting a [losing] battle with Chappie's weight. We are feeding her a measured amount of kibbles for spayed cats who're overweight. We also found a toy which she seems to like. It's a plastic "snake" in which she can tap a ball which lights up when it rolls along the tunnel. Let's hope all these efforts produce positive results! 

I hope you're all having a great week. We're safely back from Durban and I hope to post about our wonderful weekend soon.

  1. Always love to see your kitties, Jo!! You have quite a family of them!! Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to your post about your time in Durban! Have a great week!

  2. Fancy toy. Sure hopes if gives Chappie some weight loosing exercise.

  3. You spend a lot of time and dollars on all your animals. Kind people you are.

  4. Looking forward to seeing photos from Durban.

  5. Jo, I am glad your pets are all doing well. I am looking forward to hearing more about your trip! Have a great day!

  6. No 7? Some people might think that is way too many cats, I have had that comment launched at me before but they usually stay mum when you explain that that is just one cat a day on a weekly basis.

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments Jo. What an interesting life you must have in travelling Africa.

  8. some cats just seem to stabilize at a heftier weight. maybe exercise will come by scheming and sneak attacks instead of snack attacks.

  9. Hi Jo, Can't wait to see more of your photos from your trip. We just got home from a 10 day trip--and took over 1500 photos... ha ha

    Your pets are all so lucky to have you!!!!

  10. Have a nice day with your pets, greeting from Belgium
