Thelma grows up. And up. And UP. Oh. She is huge.

As promised in the title, I do have some pictures of Thelma. And as promised in the title, She. Is. Huge. But first I feel like I have some 'splaining to do.  It's been over two months since I last posted (and that sentence brought back memories of going to Saturday afternoon confession at the Catholic church when I was a kid. "father it has been one week since my last confession..." but, thats a whole 'nother story).  I've been busy, sure.  Who isn't, right? I'm not that busy.  And some things have happened (the holidays, my oldest lovey got engaged, my oldest lovey moved to Austin to be with her sweetheart, lots of other things!) that I could've posted about.  But I just didn't feel like it. That is my only excuse and it will just have to do, I guess.  I've tried to read all of my "regular" blogs on a daily basis and I've sometimes posted comments, so you all know I'm still around, right? And you all have carried on beautifully!!

But now, with no further ado, I present Thelma at eight months old:

She is asleep.  She sleeps like this all the time, usually in the middle of the room.

We got her spayed at about 5 months old (in the hopes of finding her a home - hahaha!) and she immediately started gaining weight and has not stopped. Thankfully she is spayed or I would think she is pregnant.  She is now as tall as Jack, and I suspect she weighs more than he does (15 or so pounds, maybe?).  She is bigger than Louise now (and I'm pretty sure she is not done yet). Louise still wants nothing to do with her, but Thelma keeps trying.  Every day.

Remember when she looked like this?

Yeah, me too.


  1. They grow up so fast! I have a cat that sleeps on his back--spread eagle just like that--all the time too.

    And how is Jack doing?

  2. Wow! There is just more to love and snuggle.

    1. Bonnie - I suppose that is the most positive way to look at it! Too bad she is the least snuggly cat I've ever known! Except with Jack - she loves him and will snuggle with him as much as he'll let her.

    2. Don't know why but Blogger wouldn't let me publish that comment except as Anonymous? Karin

  3. Maybe you could get her some prempro, Helped settle my weight gain. Or she could start smoking?
