Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp and Moo at the Vet!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! This week Pimp and Moo went to the vet, and they wanted to tell you that they both did a great job!

Pimp has hyperthyroid, you know, so he has to go and get his tests often. We also weigh him because the poor boy is thin and frail. He's my little bag of bones, that sweet thing.

Pimp weighed in at 8.4 pounds. He lost a little weight from the last visit, but the vet wasn't concerned. It's hard to believe this cat was once 23 pounds (and very overweight)!

This is us at the vet. It's the only time they'll get this close to each other and share my lap.
Moo on the other hand has the total opposite issue. He needs to go on a diet. That cow cat weighed in at 12.3 pounds... and he is not a big-sized cat. He gained a whole pound since his last visit. Oh my cat!

So he's officially on a diet, for real. He's been on a diet, but only kind of jokingly, but we really need to crack down now. A pound of two would make a big difference for him.

And that's the report! Other than that, they are perfect and wonderful boys. And happy to be back home, of course.

    Great job boys! I am impressed that you take them both on the same day! I would have to do it on two separate days due to the trauma and angst of the whole thing! LOL

  6. I had two of my four girls at the vet two weeks ago. Winky gained and pound and is about 9.5. She is a good weight. Poor little chubby Pinky weighs almost 14! She gained 2 pounds in a year. We have started a diet for her. My other two girls are small. 6 pound Roxy and about 9 pound Kitty who is my oldest one. But sweet Pinky needs to slim down! Good luck with Moo's diet!

  7. glad the visit went well. I had a kitty that lost lots of weight due to illness, it was hard to watch when I focused on just her weight, but her personality wouldn't let me focus on that.. it sounds like Pimp is very similar in that way..


    as for Moo, have you seen this?

  9. Good boys! Darn weigh ins! My Kiki is overweight too Moo so do not fret. It's not so bad being on a diet with good tasting food. My Kiki now eat the Medi-Cal Metabolic and all other cats can eat that too. It keeps you full and satisfied. There are also treats! Pimp, you have been looking a bit thinner. I'm glad at least the Vet said it was ok. I also had cats with thyroid problems and got thin and were on Meds. Keep eating the right food and your Mom is always there to care for you guys. You are lucky! ❤

  11. Pimp and Moo...aren't you glad that's over now?? We're glad all went well, 'cept for that dieting stuff.

  12. How sweet is this picture of the 3 of you! So happy they are fine and Pimp's weight loss is not a high priority right now but watch him closely (which I know you do) and Moo, well, I have too very o/weight fosters who have not had great interaction with toys but I try to keep them interested. They are truly spoiled and TOO HEAVY. Great work for all of you.

  13. So glad to hear they are doing well. I can't believe Pimp was 23 pounds! Shouldn't be a problem then for you to get Moo to lose a couple of pounds.

  14. They are good boys. :) Just if they would stop trying to eat each others' food! Of course the other food is more delicious... ;)

  15. Yes, his personality is still kitten! ;)



    I've read that about that link, Connie. It's interesting. He gets both dry and wet -- dry for breakfast, wet for dinner!

  16. Two pounds in a year! Excellent effort, Pinky... Haha. Now do just as good getting it back off! ;)

  17. Much easier to go together. The vet isn't so close, so I always try to take them both when I can. Plus, I think they like each other there. :)

  18. Moo is taking this cow-cat thing too seriously. ;)

  19. Thank you. They certainly know they are good looking! ;)

  20. Thanks, Leona! :) I wish they'd cuddle together on my lap more often!

  21. If you listen to Moo, you'd think I'm starving him and he eats once a week or so... ;)

  22. It's hard when one cat is too skinny and the other is too fat. I've got that going on here too. I'm going to start Hobbes back on diet food because he really needs it. It's just hard because I don't want Grace to eat that--she is tooooooo skinny. She just weighed in at 7.5 lbs. Like Pimp, our vet isn't too concerned about that. I think they just get skinny when they get old--unlike me.

  23. Glad Moo and Pimp did well at the VET. We cannot believe a cat that was once 23 pounds only weighs a little more than 8 pounds now. Hope he stays healthy. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
