Mom and Dad came home with a box last night that was about two-feet long and three-inches deep. I was on the couch a few feet away and watched Dad take it out of the box, flip it over and put some batteries in it. Was this a new cat bed or a big toy? Dad flipped the "thing" over and Mom came to pick me up and put me on it. I whined a bit, then decided to lay down on the hard surface which was nothing at all like the other cat beds we have. Then I watched Mom push the "button" and these digital numbers appeared.
Have you guessed what it was??? An infant scale!!! Yep, a digital infant scale with a memory chip from Babies "R" Us, to weigh me. I can be weighed the other way where Mom can weigh herself then carry me and weigh us together, etc., but she felt this would be easier, more precise, and a good investment for all of us kitties. Last December when I had surgery to remove a bladder stone, I weighed 8.4lbs, which was nearly half of my normal weight. Mom and Dad were so happy to see that I now weigh 8.94lbs, to be exact. Even though I still have a ways to go, at least I'm not losing anymore weight.
My kitty brothers and sisters are all going to get weighed next! Don't be suprised if their weights suddenly change on their pages.
