A little looper...

I got a little bit of pretty in the post...
I was reading Alli's blog post and she asked if we could identify the fabrics she'd picked.  I am such a fabric geek...  I couldn't resist...  I got all but two, and one of them was a dots....  Should I be proud or ashamed?!!  I don't know.  What I do know is that Alli is an absolute sweetheart, cos look what she sent me as my prize!

My gorgeous scraptastic pressie!

Just for goodness sake don't ask me to identify them (cos I'd have a good go...)  

Meantime, Miss Elliecat had her annual check up yesterday, and has once again been declared "obese".  

Gratuitous belly shot

I swear she gets dried biscuits (the veterinary recommended ones too, she wont eat nice cheap ones...) and she gets a bit less than the recommended daily amount.  But like pet, like owner - she's a fatty.  I was a bit surprised this time though, to be honest, I mean, she's been very playful the last few months.    

First there was the new toy (pics in this post) which since said post I must hold my hands up and admit I was wrong, she loves it.  Then there's the afternoon paper.  At least one of us enjoys the news...


Might look a fairly leisurely affair but that's got more to do with my lack of skills with the camera, just cant keep up with her.  Especially when she takes a big run up to land on the paper at full speed and skid across the carpet.   

And then there's the chasing...  I'm gutted this is so shockingly dark, it wasn't great to start with but blogger seems to have made it even worse, so screw your eyes up a bit - what can I say, I couldn't get her to perform in a well lit area...

So yeah.  She gets exercise, she runs and jumps and somersaults about on a regular basis.  But still she's a porker.  Oh well.  What do we say to diets? All together now...

  1. playing with her own tale! that is hilarious! i thought dogs did that... not cats! she is adorable, even if she is on the plump side. i personally think it is her fur, she is a svelte vixen under all that fur!

  2. Lucky you to receive those fabric scraps!! I'd say its a talent that you are/were able to name them. Your cat is a hoot! It's so much fun to watch animals. Your post was very humorous!

  3. I can seldom identify fabric, even the stuff I buy myself. Useless at it. So well done you. And well done Ellie because she gets way more exercise than I do! Bet her heart is healthy!

  9. Hey she lives up in Shetland she needs the insulation - maybe I should knit her a jumper out of all the fluff Saffy leaves all over my carpet and her brush then Ellie could lose some weight!

    Miaow from Saffy lounging on the spare bed - too lazy to watch the video!!

  11. I am in love with her. So she has a little extra warmth around the middle. Nothing wrong with that. She's happy. You're happy. We're all happy.

  13. I'm so far at the other end of the fabric geek scale that I'm not sure there's even a place for me on it!! Lovely fabric and well done for knowing most of the answers! I love the video of Elliecat and I'm sure that a little extra coverage won't do her any harm ;o)

  14. I would say geekism definitely worked in your favour there! I can't identify things for the life of me...

    As for Elliecat, I do like her view on diets ;o)

  18. Hahaha! Perfect response to the topic of diets at the end there!
    If you care to try another toy for even more fun and exercise, get one of those light pointer things. (I hope you know what I mean...) My parents' cat loves chasing the red dot and will jump around spastically after it for ages!
