A Nip and a Tuck

I been noticing that some of my photos make my belly look a little, er, squishy. I am very crabilated about that because I only weigh SEVEN pounds. You might remember I had to have stones surgically removed from my bladder. I think that made my belly even squishier.
Take this picture for instance. It was very Wrong to show this picture without some fancy editing first. All the famous models get their photos retouched!
Do I look much better now? I instantly lost about 3 pounds! And I got some fancy new furs to cover the bald parts of my tummy.

88 Notes for Daisy:

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

Daisy dear, we adore your squishy belleh! Srsly.

gemmak said...

Oh no, I think your natural look is so much better and so much cuter :)

Journal Kittens said...

You are very cute daisy!

Jen said...

Oh my, I think you look considerably better without the liposuction (the after photo is a bit scary :o)

Poppy Q said...

Miss D, your belly is like mine, and my mums. Just more of us to love.

Forever Foster said...

The famous models just get their flaws airbrushed. You, my dear, do not have any flaws.

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh Daisy, tell me all about squishy bellies. I haven't told this anyone yet, but when I had my spay surgery a few weeks ago the vet afterwards commented to my mom that she had to cut through quite the layer of fat. She called me a chubby teenager! Can you believe it? They should have done a liposuction with the spaying.
Purrs, Siena

the casbah kitten said...

NO Miss Daisy!! Don't become a liposuctioned, botoxed, plastic cat! We like the natural Daisy, and your squshy belleh makes you cute.

Huffle Mawson said...

Daisy, my mum nearly spat her drink all over the computer, she laughed so hard. I prefer your natural belleh.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

I like your belly au naturel, Daisy. That squared off look doesn't suit you at all!

Cat of Nine Tales said...

Squishy belly should be the new black! It could be called the Daisy belly. You look delightful Daisy as always.

Marg said...

Daisy you look much better all natural. You do not have a squishy belly at all. You should see some of us. Our fat bellies hang down. You look just terrific.

Anna said...

Oh, Daisy. You are just fine, just the way you are!
Hugs,
Anna

Alasandra said...

Freya's Staff said...

DAISY!!! I was just coughing as I scrolled down to see your touched up picture, and I CHOKED!!!
Apparently, it seems, you can't laugh and cough at the same time..

Please don't do any more funny things on your website without warning! :-)

PussDaddy said...

OMG go back to your squishy self. I like it better.

Kea said...

We think you are lovely just as you are! But to be honest, the belly picture made our human laugh and laugh. We don't know what she finds so funny, her belly is pretty squishy these days too!

Meghann LittleStudio said...

Aww don't worry Daisy, we all have something on us that is a little squishy! I happen to have quite a bit of me that is squishy (which is why I'm never in a bathing suit and why I try not to be photographed unless it is from the chest up, lol).
We all think you are beautiful as you are, without the lipo :)

Keisha said...

I think ur tummy is just cute. :)

HMS said...

Your natural belly looks the best. A lady cat should have some curves to her. You look beautifully Rubenesque.

Clarissa said...

Oh Daisy! We love your squishy belly and it's furless spots. Clarissa has a squishy belly AND it is bare. But she over-grooms it. She is also a larger kitty than you and weighs about 10 lbs.

Anymew, we wouldn't change anything about you!!!

Purrs,

Purrs,
Virus & Hyssing

Cory said...

Mom is laughing uh...with you...not at you Daisy!

We like the squishy look best...more kissable.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Efurryone knows, Devon Rex are supposed to look like they just ate a full meal...we think it even says that in the breed standard...not a word about liposuction!

Busby and Raymond said...

Um, Daisy, we like you better without retouching. xoxo

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Daisy, we love you just as you are. Perfect!

Kathy said...

Bellehs are made to be squishy and be squished :) You don't need retouching, Miss Daisy. If it bothers you, though, maybe you can wear a little girdle under your fashions.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello daisy its dennis the vizsla dog hay i think that their is a pengwin impersonating yoo or sumthing!!! ok bye

StarSpry said...

I think you look perfect just the way you are, Daisy!! I love the squishy belly :)

BumbleVee said...

I definitely prefer your natural tummy....and why wouldn't I? I have the same persistent little mound of roundness in that very same area that refuses to flatten out...even with rigorous training. sigh.....I think I am too old to flatten it out .... I guess it is part of a girl's hourglass figure... Marilyn had it too remember .... and it sure didn't stop her from being an amazing sex symbol.... besides... you-know-who loves you in spite of it!!

Tammy said...

No retouching needed! You look great, squishy belly and all :)

Puglette said...

daisy, you are just beautiful as nature made you. no photo shop or airbrushing required!
hugs,
puglette
:o)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Daisy we think you have a lovely squishy belleh. I am certain that your squishiness is only because of your surgery. Otherwise you are in fine shape. I think humans need to avoid taking photos that make us look bad...

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I need the name of your surgeon fur my mom!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

A few Good Cats said...

Daisy, we think the woman on page 194 is beautiful with her un-Photoshopped squishy tummy and so are you!

The Island Cats said...

Daisy, we think we like your squishy belly better!

My belly is getting squishy too...and my mom is threatening to get me a tummy tuck! Yikes!!

Grace said...

I wouldn't worry about it Daisy - you're so cute no matter squishy tummy or no...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

But Daisy, we adore yoo just as yoo are! Squishy belleh and all!

Laila and Minchie said...

Oh, Daisy, we love you squishy belleh and all. You are purrfect just the way you are!

Sparkle said...

Daisy, just because they do it for magazine covers does not mean it's right! Everybody looks bad from certain angles. Your belly looks CUTE not too squishy when photographed properly. I think from now on, you should get photo approval before anything goes on your blog. And tell them to ditch the "cosmetic" Photoshopping. You don't need it.

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Oh Daisy!
You look gorgeous just the way you are!! Don't ever let anyone tell you that your tummy is too squishy!! All girl kitties have squishy tummys only baby kitties have unsquishy tummys!

You are beautiful always!

CCL Wendy said...

No, frankly Daisy -- I like the real you better -- squishy parts and all. That's a very normal place for a kitty to have a little extra squishy stuff.

The photoshopped picture makes you look like some kind of zombie-kitty.

You're definitely way cuter as is!

China Cat said...

I like your squishy belly - I have one also hehe! Mine is partly fur-less too but it's mostly grown back since I quit overgrooming!

Purrrrrrrrrrs, China Cat

Cat Street Boyz said...

Daisy, we have to say...we love your squishy belly....it's cute...really!!

Shadow / Molly said...

Daisy we loves yer squishy belleh 'asides all models might get those tummy tucks but yoo shud show dem its okay to be au natural!

Sweet Praline said...

Daisy, you wouldn't be you without your squishy little belly.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Daisy, You are gorgeous just the way you are :)

dennis said...

Dennis thinks Daisy is GORGEOUS!

Pricilla said...

You shouldn't be crabilated! I love your squishily belly.

One Cats Nip said...

Oh no Daisy you look much better all natural! the models just need to be retouched because they dont really look that good but you you're naturally lovely!

Your Daily Cute said...

Aw, Daisy. I like the squishy you! And your original furs have that fabulous brown spot... Stay just like you are! :)

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

We like your squishiness.

Junior and Orion said...

Oh Daisy, you are purrfect just how you are. If you were supposed to be different, you would be. Besides....there are some squishy tummy models these days....at least there was a bit of a hullabaloo about some one time.

Ann said...

Oh Daisy I wouldn't have even noticed the squishy belly if you hadn't mentioned it. I think you look just wonderful without the touch up. The other models may need it but certainly not you.

Tristan and Crikey said...

Uh Daisy...we don't think that the edited photo looks very good:( Just be you:)

The Crew said...

Oh Daisy dear, I think your real tummy looks fine the way it is. Besides if you lost 3 lb. you'd only have 4 left. You'd hardly weigh more than a kitten!


Your friend
Misty

ABBY said...

Oh Daisy
YOU are quite beautiful and we all have a bit of a squishy tummie that makes us all soft and loveable and squishy!

purry purrs

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Daisy you are just perfect the way you are - we don't like the retouched you as much because, well, it just isn't you! We have pictures like that too - there is one of Lola that is hilarious - she looks like Jaba the Hut (wait mom said that is mean to say - well, too bad it is true!) She doesn't really look that way but the way her belly is in the picture she looks double her size! So don't worry! We love you, even if you are a bit squishy! Plus, Squishy is just such a fun word - so it must be good to be that way!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Daisy, I know EXACTLY how you feel. I was involved in a harrowing ribbon incident a couple of years ago that left me with a scarred and squishy tummy. Most of my furs cover it, but I'm very self-conscious in front of the camera. Photoshop can work wonders, but I'm thinking of consulting with a Plastic Cat Surgeon.

By the way, I want to thank you soooo much for visiting my blog during the Cat-O-Lympics! It was a great week for sure. I've already started training for the next games... Power Napping!

mew!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

We agree, you're perfect just as you are!!

Lin said...

I've got a squishy belly too, Daisy. :)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Sorry, Daisy, we think you looked much better in the first photo. The other one makes you look ... well, kind of strange. We like you just the way you are.

TK said...

Silly girl. You are gorjeous. You not need any editting.
You are purrrrfect just the way you is!!

meowmeowmans said...

You look cuter with the squishy belly! :)

Kim said...

Daisy - crabilated is a very cool word, would you mind if I borrowed it? Also, Angel Kitty has a VERY squishy belly and it's nice and cuddly.

Fin said...

You look better all natural Daisy!!

LizzyBean said...

You must be teeney tiny, Daisy! We had a kitty with a squishy belly, once. It hung down and swayed when he walked! We think you look perfect au naturale.

SophieKitty said...

Your perfect the way you are, Daisy!

Angel and Kirby said...

We like the all natural Daisy better! The other one is kinda scary!

jenianddean said...

I think you're beautiful just the way you are.

You don't look tubby. You don't look anything except CAT shaped. Daisy you are a star!

Debbie said...

I don't think the very thin models look healthy. You look very healthy and just purrfect with your squishy belly.

RE Ausetkmt said...

Patrice said...

Oh Daisy, don't worry about it. We all get a little squishy in the belly as we age. We love your natural belly...even squishy!
