Photo Hunters #51: Skinny

The Photo Hunters theme this week is skinny. This is a very hard one, because I am not skinny. Even though I weigh just over 6 pounds, I have this big belly. And my Mommie would like to lose 5 or 10 pounds, so she is not skinny either. But she told me that one time, long ago, she used to be a little bit skinny. This sounds a little bit like a fairy tale to me. Here is a picture of my Mommie in a kayak. This was before I was even borned. I guess she was strong enough to hold up a tree back then. She is not that strong now. At least, I never saw her holding a tree before.
Here is an even older picture of my Mommie when she hiked to the top of a mountain. That's Lake Tahoe in the background. My Mommie sure has pale, white skin!
This is another old photo. I think it was taken before they even invented digital cameras. Nice sneakers, Mommie! Are you about to go Jazzercize?
I am not convinced my Mommie was skinny back then. But she was not fat.

46 Notes for Daisy:

Diamond said...

Neither of you look fat to me Daisy. You look gorgeous as always. Your fan Diamond.

Tigger the FBI Cat said...

Um Daisy, my mom used to sail on Lake Tahoe in their family cabin cruiser when she was a little girl.

And before she had the children she used to surf ski on the local Canberra lake. And guess what, she was very thin.

She can't reread the Trixie Belden series at the moment as she is missing one, so she has got out the Harry Potters again.

You are your mom are both skinny, Daisy!

michico*Adan said...

Daisy, you are very skinny to me~!!!!
Not to worry about the belly, I am so sure that is only the camera lens's angle~~~

Your mommy also look skinny :D~~

Jasmin and Saffi said...

WE think you look beautiful and skinny! We know when you 'extend' you will have such a flat tummy....it all depends on what position you adopt!
Love Saffi and Jasmin xx

Dragonstar said...

That's not a kind shot of you, Daisy. No-one looks skinny in that position! You're normally a slender cat (skinny sounds rude to me)
Your Mommy looks good, too.

-d ma said...

I think I would be careful to say nicer things about someone who can lift a tree over her head.

Alasandra said...

We think your Mom was skinny.

Mommy says Sockie~Pooh used to be skinny.

Eric and Flynn said...

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

Your Mom is bootiful and skinny. Our Mom use to be skinny too, but that was WAY before we were borned. Just more to snuggle up to now. She says it's good she's tall because she can hide the extra fat better. heeheehee!

MomBean would like to know if your belly dimple is available for scritches.

Karen said...

You are gorgeous Daisy, who cares if you have a tummy...not me!

You're Mommie is very beautiful, those are some great photographs from before you were born! I would definitely say she was slender, and obviously in excellent shape too!

Sarge Charlie said...

that is not your best angle Daisy, but you are always cute. Mommie was very strong holding up that tree.

The BenSpark said...

I love the ayak and tree one. I am a kayaker as well. Have you seen my blog, the wired kayaker?

Spooker said...

Daisy - remember that stoopid v-e-t that Chloe had to go to at the 'mergency room when she had her asthma attack? He said she was "overweight" because she should be between 7 and 10 pounds. She was only 10 and a HALF pounds! We think you look just purrfect the way you are!

And we never knew your mommie was so strong! Wow, that's a big tree!
Oh, and Not The Mama says your mommie looks even better today than in the other pictures!

luv,
Auntie Spooker

SophieKitty said...

Tyler said...

Yep, I agree. You and your mom are both skinny right now.

Hugs and Purrs,

Forty Paws said...

We think both you and your Mommie are just fine! That is so cool that your Mommie used to be able to lift trees. And hike up tall mountains. Maw used to go hiking and luffed it.

Those are good "skinny" pictures.

Mom has one from when she was in the tenth grade ... She hasn't been furry skinny since then. Sigh. Me either.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

Your human looks exceptionally slim and exceptionally beautiful! She is the double of that lady from Jurassic Park. I can't remember her name but that is who your human reminds me of. I bet she is very efficient unlike my fat slovenly human!

The Devil Dog said...

Daisy, your mom is not fat, so she is skinny. As far as white legs go, we call that a "Vermont Moon Tan."

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Neat photos! Am I being anti-human if I admit that the first one is my favorite?

Team Tabby said...

Kitikata-san said...

LOL! I think your mommy had funny sneakers too.

jenianddean said...

Your mommie is very skinny! And her sneakers made my mom laugh out loud only because she used to have a pair just like them.

Happy hunting!

Andrée said...

You're such a great writer, Daisy. I always crack up at the way you turn a phrase. Your mom is gorgeous; and who wants to be skinny? We want to be women! You're gorgeous too, yes you are!

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Oh Daisy!!! Your momee iz a model! & so are you. Da momee here iz so fat she can only dreamz of climbin' a mountain. I tink I see where you gots your fashion sense fur sure.

Sassy Kat said...

Ya two both look skinny to me. I am so wonderin how your mom held up that tree, is she strong like that now????? If so I bet ya don't want to make her mad, ha, ha, ha.

Kaz's Cats said...

Now Daisy, we both think that you're looking skinny (or slender like some people said) enough - if you were any skinnier then you'd be starving for food, and that's never good for anycat or human. As for your mom, well since she's in charge of treats and food in general, you might just want to go easy with any non-skinny comments you make out loud...

Just saying,

Gypsy & Tasha

Karen Jo said...

Your Mom looks great in those pictures and so strong, too. You are slender, too, Daisy, you just have that poochy tummy from your operation.

jams o donnell said...

Both of you look great - slender is the right word! Great shots and have a happy weekend

Sunny's Mommy said...

What you call your big belly we call "pouchie". I think most cats get that after their hoohaectomy or gardenectomy. You're still a skinny girl kittie, Daisy ;-)I think your Mommy is skinny, too.

Rocky, Angie & S'more said...

Hi Daisy Do!
We thinks you and your Mommy are lovely and beautious just the way you are! No need for dieting or getting skinny for either of you!

Love,
Rocky, Angie, & S'mores xoxoxo

JB's Big World said...

I don't think either of you is fat. A little pudge is ok.....it has to be if we want to keep eating Temptations, right? My mom used to dress just like your mom!
