Fatty Watty

This is the fourth cat that we adopted but she is next in line age wise, so this is why she is next. Mia....what can I say about our Mia except that she is a unique psycho..um, I mean cat. How did we find this special bundle of cellulite joy?  There was a business that catered to all things stamping and I would always be in there any chance I could since I love making cards. The owners, a married couple, belonged to a cat rescue society who would open their arms to many cats and people knew it. A friend of theirs lived in Niagara On The Lake and her next door neighbours were taking care of this cat that they no longer wanted since this cat was actually their son's. He no longer wanted the cat because he was getting married and the cat was in the way. I knew we already had 3 cats and that was enough but this cat was being chucked aside and was already an adult so the chance of this cat being adopted was doubtful.  Yes, I made the decision and said yes to the cat. We were told she was affectionate and got along great with other cats and dogs .....Da..da dum, dumb.

When the parents came to bring us the cat, the father couldn't wait to get rid of her. We opened the cat door and she went right under the bed... it took some time for her to come out from under her secure place but she did. Now to say she is slightly overweight is an understatement, she is one fat cat!( We inherited her this way). When we open a can for her, her eyes dilate in a sort of ecstasy kind of way and she sits by her dish waiting for food. One night, we heard a  Crack and Bang and saw her walk with the cat door around her waist. We soon realized that she hates all the other cats and the dog and routinely hisses at them if they are near her. She will hiss at us if we try to move her which is a feat in itself since she is quite the load. She will eat the other cats' food, guard her area and not let the other cats in and she is so fat that, to clean her ass, she drags her ass along our white carpet leaving a streak that one only sees on men's underwear. We have routinely shaved her butt and clean it and keep her away from the other cats' food. We try to exercise her but she just looks at us  and then flops down to be petted.

Even with her psycho ways, she loves to be near us and be petted and is a loving if not the fat...um, black sheep of the family.

NAME-Mia
AGE- 9 years
NICKNAMES-Mama Mia, Fatty Watty, Fat Swan, Psycho, the termite
LOVES-being with her human parents, licking our hands then biting them. Licking and purring even when getting shaved. Being petted, eating, eating, eating. Sleeping, sleeping, sleeping.
FOOD- Any food, anytime, anywhere. Caught her eating dog food once
TOYS- laser...when she can move, my foot.

  1. It is hard to "welcome" in a family member like her, but I think she is the perfect fit for your family. I hope you can continue to provide that forever home for her!

  2. Hi, Birgit!

    Bless you for opening your heart and your door and giving roly-poly, fatty-watty Mia a forever home! I have seen fatter cats in my day but rarely have I seen a prettier one. I hope in time Mia adjusts to your other pets and gets along with them. I hope you can safely bring Mia's weight down. (Xmas is coming and a kitty treadmill would make a great stocking stuffer. :) I also hope that Mia will enjoy many more happy years as your kitty.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend BB!

    1. We try to play with her so she gets some exercise. A treadmill would be great but she would just lay on it and fall off it. She is our pretty girl who is slightly unhinged

  3. Always one in every family.
    She's a fat cat, all right. Bet she can't jump far. Maybe you could hide the other cats' food on a counter or something?

    1. We do put the other cats' food up high because she can't jump. We have to watch her all the time around the food.

  7. What an adorable fat cat, skidmarks be damned. It's amusing to me that some cats are just always fat, no matter what you do. I have a fatty (she's 16 lbs) and she eats nothing but dry cat food in small amounts. Very active, always playing, still round as a blob. At least she's a cute blob.

    1. We have had her on diet food and we try to exercise her but .....she is still our lumpy. Your blob sounds like a cutie as well.

  8. Mia is pretty. Who says that a girl with a few extra pounds on her can't be beautiful? Oh, yeah, it's Donald Trump. We'll pay no attention to him, Mia.

    Love,

    1. Mia is pretty and just wants to be near humans.....Trump is not human as evident from that thing on his head.

  9. For such an obese cat (not that there's anything wrong with that, but dang - she's obese!) she's a beauty.
    Love the story about her walking into the house with a cat door around her waist. That's hilarious.
    Keep well, my friend.

    1. She is huge and it was funny to see the cat door around her. You should see when she tries to get through the door...pretty funny.

  10. Its my guess your cat enjoys lifes comforts and loves taking it easy. Brent Spiner said about Spot in Star Trek TNG that Datas cat is the most difficult actor that anyone could possibly work with. God bless our furry friends.

    1. Actors are always upstaged by animals. Our Mia loves to sleep and eat and eat and eat.

  11. We adopted a healthy-sized one once. I swear you could have thrown a saddle over her and rode her. Then she lost her weight and was a petite, tiny thing.
    Mia is truly a beauty.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. We have tried to get her to be svelte....for 6 years.....svelte is not her middle name.

  12. Oh, she's a big girl! But lovely. I laughed aloud at the cat flap story. Less amused at the skid marks......

    1. Yes, the skid marks are always a pain and that's when we know she needs a shave.

  13. Will there be a group photo at the end of all four cats?

    (And why are you blogging on a national holiday?)

  14. Nice of you to take her in. I used to have 3 German Shepherds and we used for feed them raw tripe. One of them, Gypsy, could sink her 2 lbs of tripe in 20 seconds (really, we timed her) then would got to help herself to that of the other two. We had to stay with them so she didn't pinch the food from the others. She never got fat I'm please to say.

    1. Yup animals know their food and some will just devour the food if the others are t looking.

  15. Aww, she's an adorable little fatty! <3
    I'm so glad she found a great home with you. It made my blood boil to hear of her being tossed aside like she was.

    1. We were not too happy either especIally the way he just dumped her off. She didn't get any love so she is quite insecure but she is our family.

  16. I thought this was sounding a bit familiar... Then I got to this part: "We try to exercise her but she just looks at us and then flops down to be petted." That was when I realized -- this is ME! I am the human Mia. :P

  18. Mia and I would get along quite well hanging out on the couch, waiting for the next meal. lol. I fantasize about having more cats, but Molly the Cat doesn't share it. Not to say I can't even the house well with one cat.

    1. Our Mia has taken laying around to an art form. It is a trial to take care of 5 cats

  19. Okay, back up. The son was getting married and the cat was "in the way". Who are these people that adopt pets and then just shunt them aside? I don't get it. (I don't have any pets.)
