Mancat Monday -- UPDATED!

Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.

I am feeling kind of embarrassed, because my belly is shaved from my ultrasound.


I feel nekkid!  Here are my laser eyes to express my unhappiness.

I am getting thyroid medicine twice a day.  It is in the form of a soft treat.  The first few times, I ate it up.  The last two times, I just sniffed it.  Mom had to put it down my throat!  I didn't like that, but I am not holding it against her.  I am not a grudge-holding kitty.

So far the healthy food experiment is not going well.  Mom has only found one food that we like.  She keeps trying, though.  She did find some crunchies that we both like, so we are not starving.  Both Athena and I want our old stinky goodness back, yet Mom insists that this will be better for us.  Not if we won't eat it, Mom!


Still, I am not letting all of this get me down.  I think I'll just have a good stretch and then watch some birdie TV.  Maybe Mom will open the door today and I'll get to run outside!  Mom doesn't like when I do that, but it's fun for me!

UPDATED TO ADD:

Well, I tried to run outside but Mom grabbed me.  Listen to this!  I was having some nice window whiffies when that introoder Siamese came by my bush!  And just sat there and growled at me!  I growled back but he didn't move!  How infuriating!  Mom, let me out so I can deal with this guy!

Well, it's a very nice tummy but we get why you weren't happy to have it shaved.

I tried several "Premium" brands of kibble and settled on Purina's OneBeyond - I mixed with old food over a period of a week - a little more each day and they seem to like it. I switch off between the chicken and the salmon. I tried Blue and they just would not eat it at all - they would rather have starved - but they like OneBeyond - and mister fatty is slimming down and his dandruff is abating...of course I throw in some GoodLife Catnip treats...

Your tummy looks very elegant all smooth and silky. FAZ

Brian said...

I'm glad you are doing some better Kit, I'm sending purrs just in case. We eat a little Purina One Beyond too, but we mostly eat Blue Mountain Wilderness Chicken, we do lots better with grain free food. Yes, mix it in slowly for a good transition!!!

Awwww, I love the twisty picture of you. I had my furrs stolen a while back and it does feel very strange doesn't it? Mummy said that after a few days I felt lovely and velvety. I bet she wouldn't think it was lovely and velvety on her legs!!! Don't worry, it will soon grow back. At least you will be lovely and cool :)xx

Hannah and Lucy said...

Your pretty furs will soon grow back - we quite like the "nekkid" tummy look.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We think your tummy looks very cute, Kit! And we really hope your Mom can find a food you both like soon.

I think your nekked belleh is beautiful! Show if off!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Can you switch to the transdermal gel for the meds? It's applied to the inner ear tip, or even under the armpits (shaved). The mom used both areas for Annie.

Good luck!

P.S. Don't worry about your shaved belly, the fur will grow back quickly enough!

Katnip Lounge said...

oooh, Kit, we like your spotty tummy skin! Mommy says there's nothing wrong with nekkidness. (We wish she'd put on some clothes!) Good luck with the food. It took us almost two months before we were happy with our food switch.
Dirty rotten health food.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

The whole food-changing thing is such a pain, Kit! I still think the best food would be fresh bird, ordered right off of Bird TV. I am glad you're feeling better, though!

The Kewl~Kitty~Krew said...

We think your tummy is lovely! And ya know what? Our mommy hasta take thyroid medicine everyday too. he had hers removed (It had that nasty "C" stuff in it) BUT...she's "C" free and the medicine will just help. Srry your mom caught you in your escape. Not fun...

Willow said...

Kit getting the right food can take time after being on one type of diet. I eat Chicken Soup for the Soul Cat food variety that I like it is for good kitty health. You may like that taste. Try to take your pills so you can feel better.

Daisy said...

Oh Kit, sorry you got a shaved belleh, but it looks awfully cute! I hope you can find some stinky goodness that you enjoy. Sometimes we eat Weruva, it is yummy. I like Mack 'n Jack and Harley likes Steak Frites!

Tillie and Georgia said...

Kit, we like your shaved belly too :) We hope you keep taking your meds so you stay healthy.We have no doubt that you could take on that introoder kitty!!! But it's best to stay indoors(so Mom says) :/

Purrs Tillie and Georgia

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Kit you look handsome no matter what! What kind of food did your Mom switch you to? Thyroid is very treatable, if you take your meds like a good kitty you will be fine!

Cara n Crew said...

We like your style, Kit! Hang in there. We're sure you and Athena will get used to the new food. Our mom had a tough time with Hollie and found mixing BFF toona varieties with Wellness worked. Try and be good and take your medicines :)

How dare that Siamese growl at you!

The Island Cats said...

Hey, Kit, your furs should grow back quickly so you won't feel so nekkid. And we hope you can find some foods that you like. We're wondering what kind of foods your mom tried. We eat grain free foods and have pretty much tried every kind out there.

William said...

Kit, want to know a secret? My mom just loves shaved cat bellehs! She says they are so fun to tickle and kiss!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Well, Kit, at least you have the Bare Belleh in the summertime!

Note to the Humans, mine included: A "healthy" change of diet is not so very HEALTHY if the kitteh STARVES TO DEATH!

Jade and Myst said...

Thanks for your purrs - they worked because Myst is home safe!

Athena - our Mom has thyroid issues too & doctor made her take radioactive iodine to kill it!!! We promise she didn't glow in dark after that. Hope you feel better soon
