Are You a Potatohead? Curious Cat Wants to Know. . .

Posted on May 18, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   6 Comments | Posted in daughter · exercise · tabby · yoga

Salutations! My pet intended to write a post today but she is instead creating an imprint on the couch by impersonating a sack of potatoes. An aching, sweating, whining sack of potatoes.

She jogged two miles, determined to restart her exercise program.  With the help of my youngest pet, 16-year-old Christina, day one proved a successful mother/daughter outing—if, of course, whining and whimpering are indicative of success, which I consider to be a puzzlement of the highest order. Humans confound me! 
I, too, exercise to maintain my svelte physique, and by exercise I mean I saunter to the pantry door for treats and stretch before and after naps. I’m not certain what my pet’s sweating and breathing like a bellows is supposed to accomplish, but perhaps you will assist in my understanding of this oddity.

Curious cat wants to know:   What do you do to benefit your health, and does it please you or do you whine and complain of shin splints and “those confounded, dang-blasted, demon-inspired, neighborhood hills”?

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it is time for my yogurt…er, yoga.

Meow –

    Smeagol! So your pets are whiners, too. Maybe humans need more tuna in their diet, or a little catnip to improve their outlook.Thank you for the compliment. My eyes are one of my best features, second only to my vast intellect, of course. Meow ^^Tabby

    Tiger, the superior dog here! My pet definitely does not like to exercise…but I don't hear her pant or whine..because my hearing isn't what it used to be. I don't think she needs catnip either…but something tells me she does need some "brandy"…and a certain cat's pet told her so…just the other day!! Hmmmm???

    Hello Tiger! I discern from your name, a feline reference, that you are indeed of a superior nature though a canine you may be. I've also seen your photo and you are a handsome devil! MeOOw ^^Ah, yes, the "brandy" rescue! My pet resorts to that on occasion, though the "wine" rescue–so apropos!–is her usual choice. I still think a bit of catnip couldn't hurt.Meow ^^Tabitha

    Well, mine is just beginning to whine about her weight, but she has been wining for a few years now. She likes to sip something called Merlot from her Jimmy Buffett coffee cup. I can't see the draw, myself.

    My pet speaks of this Jimmy Buffett as well, though always in relation to the "margarita" rescue. Coincidence? Perhaps not. This could be pertinent to my world domination efforts. Thanks for your input!Meow ^^Tabby
