Five Cat Cuddle Pile

BZTAT's gonna hafta go sleep somewhere else.

So my pals Pimp and Moo over at Your Daily Cute have this thing they call “Two Cats Tuesdays”, where their post on Tuesdays is all about the two of them. I enjoy their posts, but I also admit to bein’ a bit competitive. Now that there’s five of us, I decided I would outdo them with “Fabulous Five Cat Fridays”.

It’s not easy to get us all to fit in one picture, but we did pose this once. As you can see, Okey is startin’ to feel right at home.  We had ourselves quite a cuddle pile.

Okey’s story has kinda inspired a lotta folks, so BZTAT is developin’ a big art project out of it called Okey’s Promise. Hope you will follow along with us on that. I don’t think Okey is gonna blog there herself, but I might let her guest post here now and then if she wants too.

Right now, she’s got enough new adventures to conquer before she takes up bloggin’. (I also hafta keep her away from Rumblepurr and The Birman.)

Oh, and one more thing. The Nu Campaign with Nulo is complete, but the good schtuff is still comin’. We are continuin’ with the Nulo as it really seems to have benefited all of us.

And did you hear? Noah was the biggest loser, or winner, dependin’ on how ya look at it! Of all the pets in the Nu Campaign, Noah lost the highest percentage of body weight (15%), going from 20 pounds to 17 pounds! I am so proud of him.

He is stayin’ steady at 17 lbs., but I wouldn’t be surprised if he keeps losin’. Since there’s 5 of us now, I notice that he is playin’ a bit more. Okey really keeps us all stirred up in a good way. And the Nulo has really helped put some meat on her skinny little bones. She has really filled out, and her fur is real soft.

OK, nuff said. I go some nappin’ to do. ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz….

Just Meowin’.

NoahSomethin’ weird happened folks.

Last week I told ya that Noah didn’t lose any weight. He stayed steady at 18.2 lbs. Up until then, he was losin’ 0.2 lbs. each week.

Then this week, he starts droppin’ it like crazy.

Saturday, he was at 17.6 lbs. Tuesday, he was at 17.4. Today?

17 POUNDS!!!! Can you even believe it???

We have not changed his Nulo food portions any recently. And honestly, BZTAT and I have been a bit distracted with her moving the studio back here into our home and with Okey, the new cat.

We haven’t been execrcisin’ Noah anymore than we had before. In fact, we have been doin’ it less.

I have noticed, though, that Noah has been more active on his own. He seems to be more energetic and more engagin’. He has been a bit intimidated by Okey, and has stayed his distance, but he has been definitely been more vivacious.

YAY Noah!!! Throughout the entire Nu Campaign, he has lost 3 lbs.!

Although this is the final week, we have decided to stay with the Nulo. We are big fans of the schtuff! Here’s our list of things we all like about Nulo:

  1. VERY NOMMY! I mean, really, if it didn’t taste good, what would be the point? I know I was a little hesitant that first week, as, well, ya know, I am a creature of habit. But once I got used to the different texture, I fell in love with the schtuff!
  2. Noah lost weight in a careful and healthy way. He didn’t lose it fast, which was a bit disconcerting, but it really is healthier to lose it slowly. Although this week’s loss was rapid because things finally came together fur him (exercise, feeling healthier and portion control), overall, it was gradual.
  3. All of us have shinier, softer and more luxurious fur. Even Okey, who has just been on it fur a short time, has already been feelin’ softer and her fur is gettin’ thicker. Noah’s fur used to be all matted and nasty, and now, it is much easier to get a comb and Furminator through his coat.
  4. We like the story of how Nulo was developed. The founder, Michael Landa, saw that pets of clients in his pet sitting business were having health issues related to the ingredients in over the counter pet foods, so he set out to create a food that didn’t have all the unhealthy ingredients. The food he developed is truly healthy and we trust that it is good fur us. Nulo was created out of a passion fur pets, not because someone wanted to cash in on sellin’ us crap.
  5. We like the packaging. The food comes in resealable plastic bags that keep it fresh and are good fur litter box clean-up when they are empty. Reusing bags is a good thing fur the environment, yo. We like the red Nulo boxes, too, which are a good size fur storage. They came in handy with BZTAT movin’ the studio around.
  6. The Nulo folks are top notch! They are always helpful and caring when we have questions, and they really care about us! We especially like that they send us an email that says, “Love is coming your way” each time we make an order!

Although the Nu Campaign is officially over, I will still keep ya posted on how Noah is doin’ with his weight loss. We would like to get him down at least one more pound, maybe two.

We are very appreciative of Nulo fur includin’ us in the Nu Campaign and fur givin’ us all the free food! We look forward to continuin’ our relationship with the great folks at Nulo in the future.

Just Meowin’,

sleeping catsOK. I confess. I’ve been asleep on the job.

Noah didn’t lose any weight this week. He didn’t gain any either, which is good, but still…

He is still at 18.2 lbs. I guess I got a little lazy at bein’ his personal trainer this week.  What can I meow? It’s been a busy week.

BZTAT decided to close her studio storefront and move it back into our home, so that’s got things a little crazy here. She is also openin’ up a new gallery with the great folks at Embrace Pet Insurance in Beachwood, OH, which is very excitin’! You can read all about these developments here.

And then there’s the new cat.

Okey the Parking Lot Kitty is now Okey the Studio Cat. Okey was rescued last week and brought inside the studio.

I haven’t met Okey yet, but BZTAT says she will come upstairs and stay in the extra room sometime this weekend. And BZTAT is talkin’ like Okey might be stayin’…

We are very appreciative of all the folks who donated funds so we could get Okey to a vet and get the works done. She was spayed yesterday, and she is resting comfortably today.

OkeyUp until yesterday (because of the surgery) she has been eatin’ the same Nulo noms we have been eatin’, and she seems to be gettin’ healthier already! Thanks to Nulo fur helpin’ us rescue Okey and get her back to good health.

Oh, yeah. One other thing.
