Can We Talk?

     1,000


So, today marks 1,000 days since my Human last smoked a cigarette. No, she's not really so obsessive as to have counted them all off one by one. When she quit, she joined a website called QuitNet that keeps track of your days and how much money you've saved based on how much you smoked and cost-per-pack when you quit.

She's pretty impressed with herself for getting her comma. In fact, she's well-nigh insufferable about it today. Of course, since she's well-nigh insufferable on a lot of days, it's not so very unusual. 

By the way, I think I'm looking especially handsome today, all curled up and comfortable. I didn't even mind the Flashy Box in my face.

WOW! Your human should be so very proud of herself. I've never smoked myself but I've heard that quitting can be really, REALLY tough. Yeah for her!!!

And, yeah for you, too! You'll have to check out the latest post on my blog 'cause I've given you an award. Yoo-hoo!!!

Big concats to your mom! That is quite a wonderful accomplishment. So...did you catch the amount of dollars she has saved? Has there been a corresponding increase in spend on nip, toys, treats and cat furniture for you? Seems the right thing to do!

The Cat Guy said...

that's a wonderful milestone to celebrate! Many you have many extra healthy years because of your choice.

Spitty, that really IS a reason for your Mom to be proud of herself. My Dad had to quit 3 times before it "took". But he always went back to it in less than a year. So reaching 1,000 days is a fabulous thing. (Also them were the days when they had those nasty cigarette machines all over. Can believe, when my Mom was in labor with my human sister, he started again because there was a machine in the father's waiting lunge? Wicked!! )
My human brother started smoking when he was about 18 and it took till 6 months ago (at age 33) for him to WANT to quit. Now we celebrate his 1/2 year mark.

Congrats to your human. That is wonderful!

Oskar said...

As my mom person puffs on her cigarette, she is very, very proud of your person. My mom person stopped drinking alcohol, but says smoking is much harder. Congratulations to her.

You are looking very handsome!

My mom *would* be puffing on a congratulatory cig for your mom, but we make her puff outside and we can't have it both ways at once. You know she quit last year and then started again, so we're looking for the right incentive for the next try.

Say, where did all that extra $$ go? Isn't it about time for more trees for Your Highness?

Katnip Lounge said...

HURRAH!!!! Spitty, your furs are that much MORE handsome without nicotine on them.
13 tails up for your Human! Our Daddy will occasionally smoke--but he hates it. (It's part of his whole bi-polar thing.) So we consider him a non-smoker. Mommy makes him puff outside, and once she made him smoke on the catio NEKKID so his clothes wouldn't stink! He did it, too. Mommy is a ball-buster, sometimes.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Wow, congratulations and kudos to your human, that's fantastic!

A very happy Easter to you, btw. We hope the Easter Bunny brings lots of treats!

Serious congrats to yer Mom on the COMMA!!!

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

Concatulations to your human - that is an awesome accomplishment! My human used to smoke, but she quit before I was here. Apparently what did it for her was she started working out regularly and after a while it just did not make sense to smoke anymore!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Spitty, we're so very happy for your mom that we think you should crawl into her lap of your own accord and give her some extra lovin's! She deserves it!
Of course you look spactacular, you look spactacular everywhere! I have to say that I just want to give you a smooch on that adorable little nose of yours!

Tamago said...

Congratulations to your human! It's a great milestone and she must be so proud!
You do look super handsome, Spitty :-)

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

Well, Spitty we have to say now that mom has saved up all that money, that part of it goes to spoil you!! After all, without your companionable presence, would she have been able to go the distance?? I think not.

Happy Easter, furriends!

Tom, Mom Julie & crewxx

Max said...

NICE! That's a good long time for a person to go without setting their lollipops on fire! You should do something nice for her. Go lick her toothbrush. She'll like that.

The Island Cats said...

Good going, Spitty's human! You should be proud of yourself!!

And Spitty...you are looking quite handsome today.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Spitty
Tell your Mom she has done the BEST thing she could ever do for her health and we are all sooooo very proud of her. What she did was very very hard. 1000 days and now 1001!
Way to go!!!

Brian said...

You are looking mighty fine King Spitty and we're very proud of your Mom!

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

I bet she was hard to live with the first few months of that time! But just think, now she will be around longer for you to abuse, um I mean to love, yeah, that's it...love.

Unknown said...

Wow! Spitty, your Mommy is pawsome for quitting! And what a significant amount of time! Rock On!
Me remembers when my mommy quit!
She was homicidal! Me hided for a long time. Its not so bad now (almost 12 years) Mommy still thinks about it cuz Daddy did not quit.
And Spitty, Yous is looking pretty adorable....
Kisses
Nellie

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

That's fantastic, Spitty! And what your human did is pretty good, too. It was nice of you to let her get that nice photo of you.

(Laura says) Kudos to your human for doing a verrry hard thing!

Happy Easter!

Katie Isabella said...

Spitty, I am VERY proud of your mommy! MY mommy quit before I knew her 8 years ago. She quit cold turkey. She wishes she knew how much she saved. They had gotten up to $34.00 a carton then. (she smoked the name brand whoopty-doo ones)

You always look especially handsome and good that you didn't mind the flashy box showing you off to all the lady cats.
xxxxoooo

neora chana said...

The PM tells me that this is a remarkable accomplishment for a weak-willed human, She deserves an extra pat or (shudder) kiss for it. Take this advice however you wish. PT

KarenMcG said...

Spitty, you are one very handsome kitty on that weaverie.

And congrats to your human for 1,000 days of non-smoking. That's awesome!

A Tonl said...

MOWZERS! What a wonderful milestone! And of course humans have to celebrate them with flashy boxes, GO figure!

Luxington said...

Congrats on the comma! Well done!
! And yes Spitty, that is a wonderful photo of you :-)
