Happy Monday guys

Welcome to the last Brain Training post of the current season, don't worry I'll be back later in the year with brand new puzzles just for mew.

This week I'm sharing a throwback from 31st of May 2010.  

Brain Training with Professor Basil #80 @BionicBasil® Basil In The Garden May 2010

From about 2008 to 2011 I went through a chonky phase, I called it my bulking phase and I was quite a solid cat.

And speaking of chonky, we saw a funny video on TikTok a while ago, where a lady was showing an actual CHONK CHART from a vets waiting room.  

It has a range from:-

 A Fine Boi to Oh Lawd He Comin 

And I'll be honest I think at my top weight I would have been classed as between He Chomnk and The Heckin' Chonker! MOL

 Amber at her top weight would have definitely been between a Hefty Chonk and MegaChonker, but don't tell her I ever mentioned anything about her weight, EVER!

All the other B Team memfurs have never really bulked up, although Parsley has always been a big cat.

Where do mew think mew have been on that scale?

Here's this week's wurdsearch.

And because the Large Hadron Collider in Cern, Switzerland was in our TikTok feed, I decided it would be fun to have a wordsearch full of words associated with the Hadron Collider.

  1. Love that photo! Thanks for the brain training, it still hasn't kicked in LOL!

  2. Pawsome throwback photo! I need to regain some of my chonk!

  3. We couldn't find the 'Chonk Chart' would have been fun to see. Our Toki was a huge fella at about 21 pounds...sadly it was his undoing...

  4. A lovely photo and art, Basil. I saw that chart a while back and Eric would definitely have been an "Oh lawd he coming!"

  5. Dear Basil, you were ev-furr so handsome as a chonky boy. I was once insulted by the dreaded Dr. Feelbad who used the "O" word on me. Lynn said it was called "obese" and I was over 17 pounds. Now I am a svelte 15, mol. We chonks must band together. Precious

  6. Did you know that The Guinness World Record team stopped having a 'fattest cat' category, because it's not healthy for the cats. That's called integrity.

  7. I love coming here to exercise my brain for the week. Well done.

    Have a purrfect day and week. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug to mom. ♥

  8. I'm not sure where they would be on the scale, but a couple of our kitties have gained a bit of chonk lately ... Diet changes and exercise programs are in the works ...

  9. Great photo of sweet Basil. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

  10. You didn't look chonky to us, Angel Basil, we like it that way😸We will come back for the puzzle, not the braintrainer, Granny says she doesn't have brains for these🙈Double Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead to all of you and before we forget, we made a Thank You postie for you, because we're very grateful for your purrezzies. They're amazing🐾😽💞
