It is I

The stupid canines are off at some party for some other canine today so I thought I would take over the blog and let you all know how I am doing.

A month ago I had to go to the VET because mom was worried about me because I was not eating. She said anytime I do not eat it is cause for concern. They do not call me the Fatman for nothing you know. I tell you those VET people are not nice. They shaved some of the fur off my front legs. Wrapped me in a towel and drained my blood. They gave me a shot and still didn't figure out what was wrong with me. So I went through all of that for nothing. Needless to say when I got home I started eating and was fine. Sometimes you just have to shake your humans up a bit.

I won this lovely award from Wilbur.

So thanks man. You are a cool cat also and you know your two beasts are furrier then mine. Since the big stupid one isn't that furry in this house. I do not think yours are quite as stupid though. So that may be lucky for you.
I don't know many cats to give this award to and no dog on earth deserves it so I will pass it on to my aunt Clara and uncle Edgar. They are truly cool cats for putting up with those 3 dogs they live with. Not to mention the crazy old lady and the big fire monkey.
Note to pappy and grammie: I, shelby, did not call you a crazy old lady or a big fire monkey. That was mother. You can ground her when you get here.

Now if you all recall my most intense hatred is for the big stupid dog since he is the one that bothers me the most. Well mom got him a cage as you all know since he has been whining about it. I like to do this

to further agitate him because he hates going in there even more knowing I go in and lay around in there. hahahahahaha It is more comfortable with all the blankets and pillows that have been added since those pictures. I will have to get mom to take a picture of me snoozing in there and post it later

Lastly my mom took the boy to a gator farm. He had a ton of fun and even got to hold a little gator.

Off to enjoy my day without the stupid canines
Shelby aka the fatman


  1. What a nervy cat you have...
    The boy wasn't scared of that gator? Doesn't it have very sharp teeth like Callie?

    Your boy is very brave.

    wally t.

  6. Hi, Shelby!
    I hope you are doing well.
    Congratulations on your award! Even if sometimes you are not so cool with your brothers!
    You look scary in that picture of the crate!
    Yor boy is soooo brave. Yes, he looks happy holding that gator!
    Kisses and hugs

  7. Awww Shelby! Mr. Peanut is gonna be MAD when he smells you were in his kennel!

    Love & Licks,

  8. Fatman,
    I have a kitty sissy named Ming. She is skinny and little - kinda opposite of you. You know they say opposites attract - you want her number???

  9. Shelby, We were at the pawty and we read blogs too. When Peanut saw this post, he was FURIOUS! You better be careful when you hear aire ruby land to send Peanut and Flash back. He mention something about getting back at you for stealing his blog. Dun say that I did not warn you.

    You boy looks cute with that baby gator. He is definitely a hunk in the making. Is he considering to become a crocodile hunter when he grew up?


  10. Hi Shelby, that's a nice award you won. And your boy sure is brave

    ~ Girl girl

  11. Too funny - Regardless we are thrilled you are feeling better.

  12. OMD, Peanut didn't want the crate and now he has to put up with you, too.

    It's not right. It's just not right.

    The picture of the boy at the gator farm warms my heart, so this post had a happy ending, anyway.

  13. He's holding a gator? My Dad's uncle was here visiting about a month ago and he told us a bunch of horrow stories about gators biting kids in his town and your's is holding one? Peanut and Flash need to get back fromt hat party soon to make sure their boy doesn't go off and do something so dangerous again!!

  14. thats a cool award shelby...I wonder if there have cool dog award too. Well Shelby I admit that the VET is bad but please be nice to Peanut & Flash ya.

    slurpy licks,

    peemail from Twinkle to Peanut: The chicken hat is cute but its not when everyone is calling you chicken chicken, Twinkle such a chicken!!....sobsob.

  15. Peanut
    I hope the advice I gave you and Peanut will help you get giwlfwiends wowfy of the two of'we tewwific
    smoochie kisses

  16. Shelby,
    This is Jenny, one of the 3 feline members of The Bumpass Hounds. Congratulations on you award. You look like big cat but our Boru AKA: Tub-O looks to be somewhat bigger. He's a ginger Maine Coon who is really attracted to me but I am NOT attracted to him which results in confrontation. I wish that mom and dad would take Boru away so that I could get some peace and quiet like you. We also have a Shelby in The Bumpass Hounds; small world. Keep eating and stay away from the vet if y'all can.
    - Jenny and the rest of The Bumpass Hounds (TBH)

  17. Good job, Shelby. You rule.

    Clara and Edgar

  18. Nice award, sorry about the vet thing!
    Hugs & Snugs,
    Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle

  19. Hi Shelby,
    You are so gonna get into trouble with your mom!! Good luck to you... you may want to be nicer to the canines cos you'd need all the support and sympathy votes you can get when your mom finds out what you did!

  20. Well, I'm on Peanut's side. Us dogs have to stick together.

    If you want his crate then I think you should have it, and then Peanut won't have to be locked in again.

    And he can laugh at you.


  21. i alwiz wish i have a kitty sis at home for me to bully.... how nice is that , huh?

  22. Hi Shelby,

    Mona here. I have been a friend of Peanut and Flash since the goody exchange but I would like to be your friend too. I am doing a post on friends Saturday & would like to use one of your pictures & Peanut & Flash in it. Do you think your Mommy will give me permission to use your pictures?

    Love to everybody...Mona & the Mommy too!!

  23. Yikes they drained your blood? Ewww... sometimes we just are not hungry, and hoomans freak out!

  24. Great job, Shelby. I'll give you another tip on the cage. Lounge around on top of it while your furry beast is inside. They really hate that!
