PhotoHunt: Wide - Trixie







Deck the halls with barfed up holly,
Fa la la la la
La la la la.

Trixie and Pyewacket were playing thundering herd of elephants last week, and they knocked the tree over. Bent branches, downed ornaments, bits of tree all over the carpet.... oh my!

The vet said to put her on a diet as she is getting quite wide, but she didn't take kindly to the idea.

This is my latest entry.

I hope she's still getting her X'mas pressie :P

Forever Foster said...

MOL! Does Trixie know?! I love the second one, too cute. Fui and Suey haven't quite managed to take down the tree yet. It's not for lack of trying, though!

EastCoastLife said...

hahaha.... Trixie getting too wide?
Merry Christmas Leslie!!

Fishman said...

Holiday seasons usually get most people to become wide eh? Well Trixie looks pretty cute to me!

YTSL said...

Bwahahaha, thanks for the laugh. And well, Trixie does look well fed... ;D

ian said...

awww she's beautiful just the way she is... she'd probably resolve to be back on diet come january 1st... have a great weekend! and Christmas too!

Sweet Praline said...

Those are cute, especially the second one. I was playing THoE last night all by myself. Mom heard a crash and then me runninng. She still hasn't found the evidence.

Aileni said...

You will give that cat a complex - Wide indeed!

Gerry said...

I like the cat ornament myself. And I sympathize with Trixie, having been thought a bit wide myself.

PastorMac's Ann said...

It's pretty easy to get wide - how much it's so much harder to get thin again. Not fair. I'm sure Trixie would agree.

These are terrific. Love her little beauty spot under her nose! What wonderful faces.

Blur Mommy said...

Cute car & love the layouts!

Butchay said...

sho said...

Haha! Nice layouts to go with the pictures.

Hootin' Anni said...

Ya, our cat is on a diet too...."See Food" diet.

Happy Christmas to you. Hope you can stop by and take a treat with you from Santa's Wide Boot!!

Jeanette said...

Oh very cute!! Good luck with that diet!

Elizabeth said...

I call my husband's cat Bubba because his neck is bigger around than his head and body...like a big dumb football player. Jim always says I'm mean, but he never once said it's not true. I think happy cats are supposed to be fat.

Eric and Flynn said...

Uh-oh, trust us to be different but we love, love love the first picture. Mum thinks the background is beautiful!!
I (Flynn) have had the tree down twice, but that is mum's fault for putting the robin at the top out of my way.

Patricia said...

So cute, and not wide at all! Despite the antics of my two cats, the Christimas tree has not been knocked over yet this year. They do love to run underneath the branches and steal ornaments. Little scoundrels, aren't they? Have a very merry Christmas!

tarheelrambler said...

We have our own "wide kitty" and that's one reason the Christmas tree sits on top of the entertainment center. My contribution to the theme is up this morning as well.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

julie said...

Oh no, going on a diet during the Christmas season?

Advanced Merry Christmas to you and yours :)

By the way, my eldest daughter's nickname is Trixie :D

ZOOLATRY said...

Oh oh, something's wrong here... our human is laughing loud and it's way to early in the morning for that.
Perhaps Trixie partook of that mousie pie when no one was looking...
but hey:
Wide Is Wonderful.

Cindy said...

I thought of using a photo of Ricky, but he's no longer wide. In fact he's gotten very thin and I'm trying to fatten him back up.
Trixie looks like a lovable cat in spite of her antics. I had to laugh about the "barfed up holly".
My "wide" photo is Here
Hope you can stop by!

Daisy said...

Trixie, I do not think you are too wide. You are the perfect width!

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Love the photos. Have a Merry Christmas.

The Island Cats said...

Oh, mom is worried we're gonna do the same thing....

These pictures are purrfect!

Mrs Mecomber said...

Trixie looks just right. ;) That's all MUSCLE that knocked down the tree, lol.

I did Photo Hunters today, too! I hope you can visit, and leave your link.

RJ Flamingo said...

LOL! How funny! Reminds me of the year I woke up at 2 am to get a glass of water and the tree was down in the middle of the living room with 4 cats staring at me innocently as walked through the room... ;-)

Between the holidays and commitments and work, I'm afraid I've gone a little dark and quirky this week...

Happy Holidays! (Not that it has anything to do with my PH post...)

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

MarĂ­a I. said...

She's so adorable even when getting in trouble. Put her on a diet? Ha!

marta said...

She doesn't look 'wide'. Have a great Christmas.

girasoli said...

If I didn't know better, I would have thought you put Trixie inside the ornament!

Happy Vacation!!!

Great pictures and theme for the holidays. I like how you kitty has that little black spot on her mouth. Kind of like those old-time movie star beauty marks (but a bit bigger).

Loved the photos and designs, but...'twas your comments that cracked me up!

Gabriel said...

"Dear Santa: I can explain..."

Oh, fantastic!!! That was utterly funny!

I love that line, especially coming from a cat! You should have another one saying "I can has gift?" :-)

Great job this week. Merry Christmas!
