Hi All!

Hi all! Franklin here. We haven't posted in a really long time, but we thought it was time to say hello after some really nice cats posted in honor of our birthday (August 1, for those who keep track). Our humans FORGOT completely but remembered when they saw the comment!
We've been keeping in touch with some of our friends, but not with enough of you. Anyway, we are all doing well, even though we're now officially all senior cats!

Our humans were worried because Dobby has lost 5 pounds, which is a lot (!) and I lost 2 pounds, but according to tests, we are OK. But he and I get a whole small can to eat by ourselves every day now to make sure we are not starving. It's the vet's orders!
Tasha's vet says she is "still fat, but maintaining" but Dobby and I think she is just plain fat! She weighs more than either of us now (almost 12 pounds!!). 
Tasha and Dobby still pretend that they don't like each other, but I think it is because they are bored. Look at this photo!

The humans are doing OK too except that they have both been working far too many hours. They keep talking about how it's good that they have jobs, but we think it would be good if they spent more time with their cats. 

The humans say I should call this next photo "Franklin Gump"! Check out the TV.
We hope all of you are doing very well. Our humans cannot believe we have not lost even one follower since the last time we blogged, but we know it's because all of you are so great. Unfortunately, we can't promise that the humans will keep blogging for us (our mom says "she just doesn't have time" to "take all those photos"...) but we did want to say hello, and many thanks, too.

Love, Franklin (and Dobby and Tasha too!)

P.S. Our mom discovered that Blogger has a whole new interface since the last time she blogged so please forgive us if this post is poorly formatted - it's her fault, not ours.

First off, Franklin, tell your Mom that if she checks around on the dashboard, Blogger still offers the older (working) Blogger interface, for the 98%+ of the user base who prefer it. (Our Dad made us tell you that. He hates, hates, that new interface)

We hope you and Dobby gain back some of that lost weight. What happened? Tasha start eating most of the food?

Howdy gang, nice to see you and I am glad to here you are all fine!

Fuzzy Tales said...

We, too, are glad you're all doing well. "Busy" is always the excuse humans give for their laxness in blogging!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I'm glad you guys checked in! Maybe you need some new assistants to help you blog more regularly!

Hello again and welcome back! The contents of the Hop Stoopid box might explain why the humans haven't helped you blog lately... :-)

We so glad to see you again! Franklin and Dobby, we missed seeing your handsome faces! Tasha, you are as beautiful as ever! We think of all you often and have been glad to hear from you and your mom but it's really good to see you. We don't quite understand the box thing either. Humans are weird.

Hi guys! It's so great to hear from you! We've missed you! We're glad you're all doing well.

And this is strange, but we swear we came by and wished you all a Happy Birthday the other day. But we don't see our comment. Maybe we dreamed we did it. ;)

I do not believe humans should be allowed to use that excuse. They always use it--it's been over done don't you think? Glad to get a catch up though!

The Monkeys said...

It is wonderful to see you guys!

We are glad to hear that you're all doing well! We think you boys look very svelte and healthy and Tasha is still her gorgeous self!

Good to see you back again. We've missed you. Try to get your humans to check in a bit more often.

Mr. Black said...

Nice to see you! I've been away, too (since May 2009) and just recently convinced the lady to start working on my blog again.

You guys look really good! I'll be checking back soon.

Au and Target said...

You're back! Hugs to all of you! Franklin what's with you and Dobby doing the supermodel diet thing? You should share some of those secrets with Target. Tasha is as beautiful as ever. Good to see you all.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

OMC! It's is so good to hear from you again. We don't blog much now ~ we are on FB instead as mom finds it easier and quicker. Are you on FB?
We still do the occasional post though.
Love from us all. xxxx

Cheri said...

Good to know you are all OK! We don't blog as often as we did but that is how it goes. Happy Belated Birthday - we have been having computer problems and went without for over a week. We always check our reader to see if you posted. Just check in once in a while so we know all is well. You guys are young yet - Chica was 21 this year!!!

Mishkat, we hope you'll see this comment~ we want to thank you so much for your kind words when we lost Tom. Our hearts are broken, but you and so many of Tom's friends have helped us heal.

Hope all's well with you, dear furriend, one of our first furriends on the blogs and one we are so happy to hear from, despite the sad occasion.
