Cool Critters

Wide kittyShe is a classy enough critter, but she’s just a bit of a wide load. The vet said that anything over 7 lbs could be considered overweight and she weighs in at 8 lbs 12 oz now.

That would be the equivalent of me hitting the scale at about 290 or so. My doctor would frown on that; he's somewhat less than ecstatic about my present 235.

Im ignoring you
“You have not been truly ignored until you have been ignored by a cat.”

I don’t know what we did to offend her when this was taken, and I’m not sure we knew at the time, but Molly has mastered the art of ignoring her people. Notice the ears.

This is not a critter, but it is very cool. It was given to me by my “North Carolina Family” and is hand made by a craftsman in Asheville. In addition to looking really neat, it grinds pepper better than anything I’ve ever had.

    cool grinding device... probably works better then any "modern" acrylic one, and is cool besides.

    speaking of Molly... yes cats can pout with the best of them. And she does look a bit.. um 'wider' than she ought to be. But I think you ought to get credit for height vs weight and yours doesn;t sound all that bad. Loyally speaking of course :)

  2. Yeah, thanks Bruce. I'm 6'4" and my ideal weight would be about 220, so I think the doctor is being a bit picky. But that's his job, I guess.
