Anna Sue on Thankful Thursday

I've been on a constant diet for the last two decades.  
I've lost a total of 789 pounds.  
By all accounts, 
I should be hanging from a charm bracelet

Hai Furriends and Beans..
Mom has put me on a diet because I am diabetic, and I am doing just fine so far! We discovered this before my brofur Napoleon had to run off to The Rainbow Bridge. Mom was pretty busy with worry. She is an expert at worry and had two of us to keep her worrier busy. I get an injection of insulin and go to the VET to get tested on my ear. Can you see where they steal my bloods?? It does not hurt, but Mom said it distracts from my beauty. I say it gives me character. 

We want to thank everyone for their kind words about Napoleon. We sure do miss him around here. He was here a long, long time. He was 12 years old when I came here in 2004. He was a great cat and is now at The Bridge with his sisfur, Georgia. This is one of Moms favorite photos of them, because she was so tiny and he was so big.. but she did not let that stop her from telling him what for!

We know they are happy and running free and healthy.
Thank you again for all your sweet thoughts for our boy.
We are Thankful for the Cat Blogosphere!!

  1. I treated my own diabetic cat for 7 years before she passed from cancer. I also took on several as fosters since. While I would never wish the disease on anyone or any cat, it quite often can be a blessing because of how close you end up becoming. The learning curve is very steep but pretty short. The biggest hurdle for me was learning to test blood sugars at home. If I can be of any support I'm just a few clicks away!

  2. Anna Sue, I am sure your human will do fine with your treatment. And continued purrs to your family - I am sure Napoleon's loss left such a big hole in your home.

  3. Hi there Anna Sue. We are so glad to hear that you are doing all right. You have one wonderful Mom that will help you with this disease, diabetes and help you get through it. We will miss Napoleon too and sure sorry he had to leave all of you.

  4. Anna Sue you are a true beauty!!! I love that pic of Napoleon and Georgia having a little squabble :-)

    It is hard to lose old friends...

  5. Beautiful Anna Sue!! Yay for doing ever so well with your diet!! And nothing detracts from your beauty - you are just perfect!

    Yay too for angels Napoleon and Georgia. Take care

  6. (((purrs))) we know how hard it is to lose a friend.

    So happy you are doing well...and we agree, you have character!

  7. Anna, you sure are a beautiful ladycat! We are glad that your mom is taking such good care of you with that diabetes stuff.

    We miss Napoleon, too, and send you purrs and prayers of comfort.

  8. Anna Sue, we are glad you are doing well. Georgian and Napoleon were both beauties!

  9. Nothing could distract from your beauty Anna Sue!

  10. I had a kitty who was diabetic for seven years before she passed of cancer. Testing is pretty easy once you get used to it.

  11. It's great to visit your blog. We hope the diet that your mom put you on helped you with your health. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful rest of your day.
