Today is Pet Obesity Awareness Day and Mittens is celebrating by … pestering Mom for extra treats. It’s a good thing Mom knows Mitty needs to take it easy on the treats and exercise to stay healthy, even if Mittens completely disagrees.

And more in Mom news: She’s taken it upon herself to slap a photo of Mitty on the side of a coffee mug, and she didn’t even ask for his permission! Mittens is thinking this may be a case for Judge Judy. Oh, and she wants to blame Mittens for Stumpy’s penchant for getting high on nip and destroying boxes of Kleenex. Not Mitty’s tissue issue.

So much agony for our pal Mitty! Of course, he gives us a play-by-play via text messages.
