Arrival Story:
Today is the end of an era and a very difficult one for Ella's previous owner. After careful and 9 years together, tonight Ella's mommy will be taking her to live with me, her Auntie. While fabulous to mom, she have always hated (read: bit/hissed at/terrified/attacked) everyone else, which does not a successful soon-to-be-live-in-relationship make with Ella's daddy. I look forward to taking good care of her, putting her on a little diet, giving her lots of exercise and showering her with love (as much as she'll let me).

Ella Vader's Guide to Evil

Skinny Kitty

So, I am happy to report Ella is down to 15 pounds and holding. She is a lot more active and regularly makes trips to the first floor to check things out and has even taken a couple of exploratory trips down to the basement to visit The Shadow's lair.

Dad is trying to train the dogs to "chase" and "play" with her for exercise purposes, which has only resulted in him being bitten (not severely!) Silly human.

Ella much prefers the company of grandma and grandpa, who are connoisseurs of fat kitty lovins.

Fat kitty also learned a trick! Since we find she is (obviously!) food-motivated, she is now trained to sit for her food on command. Take that, dogs!


Biggest Loser: Kitty Edition

So new mom decided to enter Ella into a contest. She has this friend who has TWO morbidly obese kitties of her own, so its kitty boot camp time! (The winner to receive a healthy, skinny kitty!)
Ella has been hard at work on a new diet and exercise plan.
The diet will transition her from her Iams food to a different brand's "weight management" formula, which mom has decided to mix with an indoor formula to keep everything balanced (and hairball free).
Exercise consists (for now) of Ella trying to jump up on the bed. Since she's getting thousands of reps a day in on this, we anticipate no problems in her calorie burning power. However, we would eventually like to get Ella going up and down the stairs in the house and even up on the various unexplored kitty perches by the windows. (There's even a cat-friendly porch roof for sunning.)
Yes, new mom's house is kind of like kitty club med, except for the annoying security system (dogbouncers!)

Thanks for reading ella's guide to evil...which actually thus far has not been so evil. Ella has had an interesting couple of days. Her mouth is getting her into trouble as she tends to "say" inappropriate things at inappropriate times. This is like when your toddler learns a new (bad) word and blurts it out compulsively.....you've been there, right? Conversation goes like so:
Ella, are you hungry? (hiss)
Ella, do you like to be brushed? (purrrrr, hiss!)
El_ (hiss, hiss, hiss)
Ok Ella, you need some alone time obviously. (growl)
