Oh kitties, it's a sad sad day. I have sad sad news to report. Sigh. I wish I didn't have to tell you this kitties, it makes my little eyes water just thinking about it but I must, it is important you all know this. My mommy... has put me... back on my diet.
I know, you can't believe it can you? There's no way to prepare for the news when it is that bleak. What can you do about it? I'm so horrified to even have to say it myself. Mommy says I'm just too much of a chunk munk these days. (Apparently chunky monkey wasn't degrading enough - she had to shorten it!) Mommy told me she loves me very much and she wants me to live a very long life so I have to take off some pounds. She got worried about me because the other day I was having some *blushes* problems reaching a sensitive area to clean. I'm a lady so I won't elaborate on that but suffice to say mommy saw me and said that that was the last straw. It's time to lose some weight. I'm back on less than a cup of calorie control diet from my vet a day and she is allowing me to split a pouch of my favorite wet food with River a day. (Mostly because River steals my diet control food grrrrrrrr!)
River gets all his delicious gravy soaked nom noms up on the table now. That's right... she's letting that BROTHER of mine eat off the TABLE like he's a PEOPLES! I can't believe the insult. Just because River doesn't have to lose weight doesn't mean you should taunt me like this. I don't like jumping that high because of my lack of front claws. GRRRRRRRR again to the people who declawed me before mommy and daddy found me. Is there no END to the suffering I must endure?
I'll keep you kitties updated about my weight loss. I hope I lose it all fast. I don't want this diet thing to go on forever. I HATE dieting. I HATE the idea of my belly getting smaller, that will mean LESS belly TO RUB! Do you hear me kitties? She wants LESS MOE MOE BELLY TO RUB!!! Oh... the inhumanity!

You have my sympathy - this is terrible news, and, you poor thing, it's AWFUL the way they are treating you!! Luv, Tink
Oh dear Simone, I'm am so chubby too and so is Shelly. We had to start eating a diet-light food too. Theres no complaints here yet though.
Just think, we worked so hard to put more on us for our humans to love, and then they go and do something nutty!!!!!
Good Luck My friend. Understaning, Charlie Clarence
Oh no! The horrors! My mom is making me go back on my diet too and she said no more people food. :( she said I was spoiled on our vacation and now I've got a bit of a belly sway.
That is so terrible Simone
I feel your pain....I too need watch my weight. Mom has trouble lifting me. At night she makes me exerise by doing the laser pointer up and down the steps. At least she makes exercise fun. Good luck with your diet. We do want to have you for our friend for a long long time. Purrs, Ivan
Poor Miss Simone.
I feel bad fur you, too.And Pipo does too.
Diet is a four letter word...and it should be banned!
Shall I send you some nom-noms in a concealed package??
Oh Simone, I'm sorry! I love food too and I always want to eat. One day mom decided to do an experiment and just give me food whenever I wanted it. And I always wanted it! I was never full! It is really dry food that makes kitties gain weight. I rarely ever get dry, only as a special treat. Has your mom ever looked at the website catinfo.org? it is written by a vet and has great info about cat nutrition.
That's just awful, Simone! I think you're perfect just the way you are.
OMC! You scared me I thought how has went to the bridge now. But, it was just a diet. You don't look chunky. You know Mommys' know these things though. Mom has cut back on Diamonds food and uped her time outside, everybody kept saying she's getting fat. Mom and Dad was in denial for a while but Mom sees it now.
Rose and I are on a diet too!
Mama called me Lumpy Loki today! Hisses!
I send you comforting purrs...
We are not fat! we are purrfection in plus size!
Now I must flop down and pout.
Oh Zoe I thought someone had gone to the bridge too! I am sorry you have to diet MoeMOe that is a most awful word! I never been on one of those I am the the tiny mighty moemoe, I love love love to run jump climb and chse that little furry mouse or spider on a string. You shoud try it OMC's it is tooo fun! Tiny (silly name for that cat) even likes to run and chase it. Even Boo! yea she thinks she is such a lady too but she goes for it. I sure hope you are successful with the diet quickly.
Yeah don't do that! You scared the pee pee out of me too! Sheesh! Toki, just so ya know, Simone's mommy knows all about that stuff because she belongs to my mom's newsletter and my mom preaches this stuff up the whazoo! So HOPEFULLY she's being good and feeding her the right stuff or my mommy is gonna come and steal Simone and bring her here. Hey...that sounds fun! Be right over Simone!
My mom gets very worried about things like this because her last cat before me was BIG- 15 pounds on a small frame, and she got sick because of it. My mom even wiped her bum (cat's bum, not my mom's hehe) with baby wipes because she couldn't reach to groom that area herself.
Concats on being DDP today Simone.
Oh dears, sorry kitties! Didn't mean to make you think that, it's just that a diet is the very worse thing that could ever happen to me in my opinion!
Finney... if you steal me make sure you take River too! We're a bonded pair! We need to be together. I don't really care but he'll get sick if we aren't together and I know you guys don't want that! hehehe!
The biggest problem with my weight is what happened to me before mommy. I was an abused breeder who cranked out lots and lots of litters for profit. I'm a tiny frame girl but I have really stretched out furr and skin and my hips are use to carrying a heavier girl. It's just so easy for me to put on weight. I seem to hit around 12-13 pounds and just stay there no matter what, I SHOULD only be around 10 though, so that's the problem. It's just really hard for me to stay at 10 pounds, my natural weight seems to be much higher. Last time I was put on a diet the stress involved was so bad that the vet and mommy opted that I should be heavier if it was easier on my stress levels. They are hoping that this time with the calming collars seeming to work so well that it all works out better. I'd like to be a healthy weight and live a longer life but mommy and the vet judge everything by my quality of life involved. Let's keep our paws crossed for me this time around! So far so good though, no stress attacks related to empty food bowl syndrome yet!
Yeah...saying something like 'sad news' is pretty scary stuff just about now.
I feel your pain, Simone. Mom's been cutting back on my food too. We both get Colette's low-fat, low cal kibble, but now Mom is giving me less wet food for supper. I'm not all that much bigger, framewise, than Keshy was, but I'm almost double her weight.
Concats on your DDP honor!
Moe Moe, I am sorry. I love food and Mom says I have to watch what I eat. I always say: Look who's talking, he he.
You have to take it very slow with the weight loss. Be patient. Do you have a baby scale? We have one, grrrr. All the best for you for your diet. And a big hug for being a DDP today.
Poor Simone!!! I agree, diets stink!!! ( See daddy,m I didn't say what you do with a straw!!) Hope you get off it soon!!! I am sooo glad to be off mine!!! ( That diet food tastes like a litter box!!! A USED litterbox!!!)
Concats on you DDP today Simone.
Have a great day!
Hope you great some treats today!
You've earned them!!!!!!
Love, Kibbles family
I hear someone has a DDP today! Congrats my statuesque friend.
Simone, I hear you on that stress thing. The only time Doc. has even mentioned diet for me was when we first moved into our house. Mom asked him if I could be stress eating.. He thought sense I never had a weight problem it was possible.
Mom worries about cancer with me a lot cause I stay too skinny and had some other indicators. But Doc. doesn't seem to be worried. Mom is a worry wort some times. I feel and act fine!
Concats. on your DDP ! Enjoy your day with some Healthy Treats (they're not that bad) ! Always remember there are Support Groups for Weight related problems such as our own Buddys, Big Harry & The Gangs , American Fathair Society .
I even belong ...as I have this hanging type belly!

Good Luck with the diet! Love ya, my furiend! :)
OMC, Simone, the "d" word? That is really awful. Mom has got me on a diet, too, and I hate it. She thinks she can substitute wet food for my beloved kibble, isn't that ridiculous? Concats on your DDP today, I think that's worth a few extra treats!
Diet is such a bad word, and I think I'm gonna be going on one too because I've been putting on the poundage. Congrats on your diary pick today - at least that is some good news!
Moe Moe, mommy is going to try and think of something this weekend to help you with this issue. I'm so sorry about everything that happened to you. It's jut not right and this is the very reason Lacey wants everyone to sign that Animal Bill of Rights petition (see Lacey's diary please). This has to stop!
Concats on being a DDP, today, Simone!
Hope your day will be filled with lots of those great belly rubs, and maybe a treat or two...
Pipo & Minko
I'm sorry Simone for having to be put on a diet. Try to think of all the catnip toys your mommy makes.
Catnip is low in calories, right.
Concats on being a DDP today.
Hugs & Purrs,
Simone, I was going to send you some of my favorite cat treats but it was a lot of hard work to get them into the envelope & then I couldn't figure out how to write your name/address...thumbs sure would have been helpful. So I ended up eating them myself......but just think of the calories I saved you! ;) By the way, my mom has been commenting that I'm getting a bit chunky too. OH NOES!
Hope your diet ends soon! Concats on your DDP!!!
Sorry to hear 'bout Ur diet....don't sound fun to me! U should, though, be able to pawty a bit 'n get extra goodies 'n treats today coz Ur DDP 'n dat's so furry spawcial!! 'N Ur bootifur jus' da way u r to me!~
Love 'n many nudges,
that does not sound like fun simone. u are still a pretty girl. mom says i luv my food way too much too.
That's just terrible - I've done the dieting thing and it is NO fun!
oh yes I had to do the dieting thing too it is just awful! I love to eat, but if you think about it if you eat cause you are bored,then maybe you can find something more interesting to do. I am learnign to play at playtime chaing stuff juming, and strtching the excerise really helps.
Congratulations on your diary pick.
BTW don't you just love your mom way too much to allow Finney's mom to kidnap you and River...do you think the food intake i better there? I bet they gotta diet tooo if they get too heavy. I bet your mom would really miss you too
heheheh, I can joke about it Booboo but it's true, mommy would never let anyone take me away! She'd miss me WAY too much, and probably River too! hehehe! (Definitely me more though!) I'm just going to have to keep her on her toes if she's going to put me on a diet! I have to take some revenge for this indignity!
