Critical Mass

I built this particular bookcase with my own two delicate little hands. It's a very sturdy piece that survived many traumatic things in the last 25 years, from wild parties to toddlers to fires.
 
This may be all it can handle, however. Meet the business end of Hugs, also known as Lunchbox, Tons of Fun, Critical Mass Cat, Storage Locker 12, Full Eclipse, The Most Cat for Your Money, Free Weight, Feed Bag, He Who Blocks Out the Sun, Meatloaf, The Hudge, and The Cat Who Ate New Jersey.
This is a good perch for spreading your ample self out and watching lizards on the screen.
Lizards that you, personally, have no interest in catching. But should one be hand delivered, you will accept. Graciously.
Jack sees no point to this post and is insulted by his inclusion.

Very humorous! We have a walking rectangle ourselves... he was on a diet, once. But he became very cantankerous... swatting our legs and hissing when we would walk by so after 2 lbs. we called it quits. He gets up for two things... food and, well, actually just food:)

Hugs does not seem at all upset that this very unflattering, up close photo has been taken of his 'business end'. How funny!

Amanda said...

That is one hefty cat. Holy smokes! (No pun intended... okay maybe it was intended.)

Life in Rehab said...

Heather, I exhibit very similar behavior when dieting. It's never pretty.

Sherri, I think he was posing. In the cat world, fat is in.

Amanda, with puns like that, I'm putting your resume' on file just in case we need writers in the future.

Anniegi said...

How much does that boy weigh?!?! That's priceless! I've got a plus size 14 year old buff tabby whose critical mass I've given up on. The behavioral issues that followed weren't pretty and I got tired of washing bedding if ya know what I mean.

Life in Rehab said...

Annie, I'm not sure about the poundage on that prize porker, but my husband does grunt when he uses him for arm curls.

And yes, I DO know what you mean...

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

Oh My Goodness!! I can totally identify with that cat!! Love me or leave me alone!!

Life in Rehab said...

Oh, he's loved, never fear. He's actually in that position because butt scritches were occurring. The Feline Overlords are never ignored.

Pat Harris said...

What a great cat!! Love him. All of him! Mine is just the opposite. Due to a thyroid problem (now being medicated) She was a boney thing.

Oh I thought that was two cats at first. Sorry Hugs!! More to love is always nice!

Trac~ said...

LOL - he's too cute! I LOVE kitty cats - they are all too sweet! Glad you liked my chest redo - hopefully you can transform yours like it soon as well. Thanks for stopping by to say hello. :o)

AliLilly said...

AWWW! My kitty was a big fatty! He's really old now so he's not such a fatty! Your comment on my Alie Marie post was too funny!!! I know what you mean tho. I do tend to squeeze her to hard from time to time! I just get so carried away!!

Sue said...

Wow, that guy gives a whole new meaning to the expression "fat cat."

;)

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I think Jack needed to be in the post because he made me smile!

He's a cutie, but I have a feeling he thinks he's too cool to be cute...

JDaniel4's Mom said...

That is quite a cat! He must love to eat.

Sailing Simply said...

LOL! I had a big cat once that we always referred to as the "Big Lug"! So I totally get where your coming from. Both of your cats are precious, all ??? pounds of them!

Mumsy said...

Awe..the things that cats do! I don't have one since everyone in my family is allergic, but love looking at cats..
