Does Size Matter?

Okay, this is just mean.  I know dad can be cruel (just ask any of his siblings.  Or mom sometimes), but come on, dad.  Really? 

     I mean, what are you trying to say, hmm?  I get the jokes about my heft and girth.  I ignore all the well-meant-though-offensive-nonetheless nicknames.  I'm trying to get used to my special diet.  But really?
     "Ha ha ha," he chortles.  "Let's put a ruler on the sleeping kitty," he says.  "Aren't I the funny one," he says to himself.  "Let's make fun of her size," he says under mom's stern glare.
   
  Laugh all you want, big guy.  You're hilarious with your measuring stick.  Remember, I've seen you naked...

Cleo, that one cruel, mean old daddy! May I suggest some payback is in order? Jump on his sleeping chest, with all of your dainty weight! Or, grab the camera and snap a photo of the numbers on the weight scale when he's on it the next time. That'll learn him a thing or two...

What can you do, Cleo? You know we have to put up with the antics of humans sometimes. Just remember how easily amused they are and ignore the insults.

Hahahaha... Our Tilly has always had weight issues. Struggling to keep one hyper-thyroid suffering cat's weight healthy, I didn't realize she was getting so fat under her wooly coat. Oops. Now, ironically, she's got hyper-thyroidism. ~sigh~ On that note, I need to administer her morning pill! Thanks for the inadvertent reminder. Be well!

I know about the measuring stick. TBT puts it on me sometimes when I complain I haven't been fed enough. Like a stick measures "hungry"? ~ IZA

Your dad and my dad would get along really well. He's never measured me, but he has held a tape measure across my former brother Eddie Bear. He also likes putting toys on us. Take no offense, it's just what boys do.
