Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – January 30, 2017

Bow-Tie talking at the vetHi everybody!

The first month of the New Year is already over (well, almost.)

How are those New Year’s Resolutions coming along?

As you know, at the end of last year I was diagnosed as being overweight.

Me!

 

 

 

 

Small incidentI took offense when I first heard the diagnosis…

…but I guess I can see what they meant.

So my New Year’s Resolution was to lose the weight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie loves attentionGood news!

I went back to the vet after sticking to my diet, and I impressed them all.

My weight is purrfect!

 

 

 

 

 

The vet gives Bow-Tie thumbs upI even got a “thumbs up” from my doctor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SidneyOn the other hand…

there’s my friend Sidney.

Remember Sidney?

She flew from the Chubby Cat Pod at Cat Depot all the way to her new home in Chicago.

Well, she’s still battling her weight problem.

 

 

 

 

Sidney enjoying the sunBut as you see, she works out and is eating right.

This year she’ll make her ideal weight too.

After the long and cold winter in Chicago, she wants to look good again for summer.

Good luck, Sidney.

Us fatties have to stick together.

If I can do it, you can do it!

 

 

Happy second month of 2017!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 12, 2016

Bow-Tie's vet check up started wellDear Everyone,

I’m going to tell you something pretty purrsonal.

There was a little incident and some news this week.

Generally I like to spread good news.

This however is not so good.

I had my 6-month check-up at the vet this week.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and Courage waiting at the vet's officeIt all started out pretty good.

I like my vet and I’m always happy to see her.

Even wore a nice Christmas tie for the occasion.

Courage  went too, and we patiently waited until it was our turn.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is curious to see what the vet techs are doingI’m always curious about what’s going on, so I interact with the vet techs.

They think I’m funny… and nosey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Courage is proud of being healthyCourage was finished first and got a purrfect report.

She was all proud of herself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What? No, I'm not chubby!Remember I started out saying this news was not so good?

Well, here it comes…

…the vet came in with a report she printed out.

She said she wanted to discuss something.

Ready for the bad report?

Here’s what she showed us…

Bow-Tie is ashamedShe said I had a weight problem!!!

Me!!!

I was so embarrassed.

All I could do was hang my head in shame.

Me.

Chubby.

Really?

 

 

Small incident at the vet's officeI know it’s not healthy for cats to be overweight.

I am just now starting to carry a little extra weight, so we’ll catch it early.

But it’s the Christmas season, and I am going to have to be treat-less.

There better be extra toys in that stocking to make up for the missing treats.

“A bit chubby” was the vet’s description.

How embarrassing.

So with hunger pangs and embarrassment I say bye for this week.

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – October 24, 2016

Bow-Tie needs to address something importantHi my friends!

Can I talk to you about something very serious?

This time of the year everybody is talking about Trick or Treat.

I don’t like tricks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie thinks of treatsBut I sure do like treats!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie talks about cat treatsCat treats, that is.

Cat treats are the only ones we cats should eat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie reads the labelI’m always careful to read the label before I eat anything.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie tests treats for CourageI’m also very good at protecting my sisters from bad things.

I do taste tests for them. (Hee hee)

 

Candy is not good for cats.

Humans have to be especially careful this time a year.

There is an abundance of candy around and we are, after all, curious cats.

Sugar is never good, chocolate is often toxic, and all kinds of bad things can happen.

 

Bow-Tie has a serious discussion about cat treatsChocolate covered raisins are a double whammy.

They can cause kidney failure.

Please protect your kitties this season.

No candy for cats.

Cat treats only, please.

 

 

Annie Sullivan compliments Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie writes a good blog, doesn’t he?

He’s too humble to say so himself, but I’m not!

And now he’s embarrassed.

But I think Bow-Tie rules!

 

Love from both of us,

Bow-Tie (and me, Annie Sullivan)
