Sorry for the convenience

Me in a Nutshell

This is a cross-section of my particular flavor of nerderia, heavy on Katamari Damacy, Mario, and Perler beads. Who am I kidding? It's mostly reblogs of awesome stuff, including cats, owls, and unicorns, with a smattering of original content and some interesting commentary on the reblogs. I do, wild as it sounds, actually try to make friends (not just followers) on here.

For those not aware, The Cat Fairy is a beautiful creature who collects stray cats and puts them into the gardens of humans who love cats. She sprinkles the cat with her magic dust and therefore the humans immediately fall under the cat’s spell and keep them as forever pets.

Mabel must have been sent by The Cat Fairy (though I found her in a parking lot).

Cola 28 Maybe The Oldest Cat In Britain

Cola, a beautiful black cat, is perhaps the oldest cat in Britain. She was born in 1985 when Back to the Future was topping the box office.She will turn 28 this year. That’s is 140 in cat years.Cola has lived with Mary Goldsmith, 66, since she was a kitten. “I don’t throw big birthday parties for her, because every day she is around is a celebration,” Mary said via Daily Mail.“We have had children who have grown up to have their own families and Cola has lived through all that and is still around. It’s quite a milestone. The years have absolutely flown by.”When it comes to the secret to Cola’s long life, Mary attributes it to love and spoiling. “I’ve got children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who come over to play with her and keep her busy.”“She is still reasonably fit for her age and can still jump onto a chair – but she doesn’t have quite the same spring in her step,” Mary added. ”She has lived to such a grand age. Perhaps she really does have nine lives? She is a lucky black cat, that’s for sure.”

This gives me all the feels.  Mabel and I had our 8 year anniversary of her rescue date this month.  The vet estimated that she was 2 when she found me.  I was 20.  I would love to have another 18 years with her.  If she lives just 12 more years, I will have spent half my life with her.  I will not let her linger  though.  If she starts to show signs of pain or has trouble getting around and/or eating, I will have to let her go with dignity.  I would like for her to go quietly in her sleep at a ripe, old age, before ever showing those signs.

Mabel and I took a couch nap earlier. She curled up beside me and buried her face in my hand.

If Mabel were this big, there would be nothing wrong in my world ever again.

I rescued Mabel 7.5 years ago, but yesterday was a first for this particular behavior.

this cat is just fat, sorry. But it´s not ok for poor thing

A message from Mabel’s mommy:I rescued Mabel as a stray on 9/2/05 at my university.  She was alone and crying in a parking lot that was packed, as it was the night of a football game.  I was afraid she would get run over, so I took her home.  When I took her to the vet the following Monday, she weighed 12 pounds, and the vet was sure she was pregnant.  It turned out that she had actually already been spayed.  Per the vet’s instructions, I put Mabel on a rationed diet of weight-control food.  Mabel reacted to this with great food insecurity, and began eating anything she could find in the floor (inanimate objects), but also gained weight while on this diet.  With the vet’s okay, I then switched to free-feeding her the weight-control food, to at least alleviate her food insecurity.  She continued to gain weight.  She was checked out for various kitty diseases and given a clean bill of health.  Knowing what Mabel and I had been through and the results, the vet told me that Mabel was “just a fat cat” and to let her be.  She now weighs 16 pounds, and she is active and healthy.  She has no trouble getting around and loves to play with the dog and with her feather on a stick.
Just as in people, “fat” does not necessarily mean “unhealthy.”
Don’t judge Mabel for being fat, and don’t judge me as a kitty mommy for Mabel being fat.  Mabel is fat.  Mabel is healthy.  Mabel is beautiful.  Mabel is loved.
