Happy Monday guys

Welcome to the first Brain Training post of the current season. I'll be posting every other Monday to help mew keep your little grey cells in tip-top condition!

This week, I'm sharing a throwback from the 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, which I called my bulking phase. During this time, I was quite a solid cat.

And speaking of chonky, we saw a funny video on TikTok a while ago in which a lady showed an actual CHONK CHART from a vet's 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. Thank you for the brain training, I can do most of it but those puzzles take me forever and no one can train me to be faster. My eyes just aren't good enough to go faster.

    Our kitties are mostly He Chomnk, with the exception of Dansig the Round, he's just a touch bigger than Hefty.

  2. I need all the brain training I can get. I always enjoy coming here.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug to your wonderful mom. ♥

  3. Professor Basil, you are handsome even if near chonk status. A couple of our guys are getting close and could use a little dieting ...
