*****************
On July 22nd I posted about the new food 
Mom switched me to due to a itty bitty
elevation in one of my kidney enzymes.
She was worried I would not like it. 
HA..I never met a can of food I didn't like!
Click here it you missed it.

We have to buy the food from my vet...first mom
bought 3 cans (they are twice the size of Fancy Feast).
She was still worried I might decide I didn't like it.
Next she bought 6 cans...not very economical but still
she was being cautious.

WELL LAST WEEK SHE CAME ON WITH A
PALLET OF THE CANS. I QUESTIONED
HER SANITY...I MEAN REALLY SHE 
MUST THINK I'M A HOG
I counted the rows
I counted the cans in each row


After I did the math, I said


Mom I can't believe I can eat 24 cans of food.
But I'm willing to try!! MOL

Show and Tell with Bacon

 This time though, let’s highlight toy that you really loved as a child and absolutely could not live without – that you had hours and hours of entertainment playing with.  You don’t have to still have it but try to find a picture of it to post and talk about.


Madi's Mom Here:

Flashback to Christmas 1954... (photos developed 1/55)
First of all pardon the head dresses (more on that later*) my Mom and I were wearing.
 That year I was torn between being a tomboy and a prissy missy.
  I asked for cowboy or Indian suit,( shown in the chair you see the Indian suit and drum there was also an Indian headdress but I couldn't find the picture) a Betsy Wetsy doll not pictured. Betsy came with a bottle, you put water in it then feed her..then she wet her pants.  


I also asked for a new watch and charm bracelet pictured below
Also pictured below is the fancy hair do you got when you
slept with your hair rolled in bobby pins and your head wrapped in the head thing.

  7. Madi, I can help you with the food, just give me a sign lol. How great that your mom got an indian suit, she could wear it together with my mom who was "Pocahontas" once. Her pawrents need hours to explain her, that she can't wear that suit in school. I remember the bobby pin-hairstyle, mom even bought a special pillow to get some sleep while wearing the pins and rollers on her head, sadly the pillow wasn't the real mc coy lol

  8. "I can't believe I ate" was made for Ashton, who eats all kinds of crazy things! We'll have to check it out. We get our food in big flats like that, too. It vanishes faster than you expect, Madi, trust us!

  9. I remember when we had cats we would get so frustrated over special diet foods - just when we thought they would eat it and bought a case or large bag, they would quit.

  18. Madi, Phantom gets special cans from the vet too, but Mom says it never devours it. In fact most of it goes down the drain:( Maybe she needs to get him some of that cat food.

    Mom's favorite toy that she remembers was from the Christmas when she got a Chatty Cathy - perfect for a mom named Kathie (well almost perfect). And she too had a Betsy Wetsy doll.

    Happy weekend.

  28. Great pictures of your mom Madi. I think you will manage to eat all that food Madi, but not in one sitting.
    My mum buys my food when it is on offer. If it is a good price she gets 24 each of my 3 favourite flavours. That's 72 tins!

    ReplyDelete
  29. MOL! Madi, we don't think you're expected to eat 24 cans all at once! The mom bought that food for us one time, we didn't like it much.
