Not that I’d dare use Dougy’s ottoman for my feet…! Dougy just becomes alarmed if he thinks I might put my feet on his ottoman.
OK, kitty! My feet are tucked back on the floor again.
These days poor Dougy hides in the dark. He hates dematting! It hurts! He protests, but it has to be done. I try to minimize the time spent each day dealing with his mats because I feel bad when I fail to remove the mats without hurting poor Dougy.
The torture tool, the upset “victim”, and the output! Part of the problem is Dougy loves to be brushed, but he always rolls over on his right side a short time after I begin.
Guess which side has no mats. Yes, the left side, the one that gets brushed the most!
I have to find a way to brush Dougy’s right side more so the mats he hates having combed out don’t form. At this point, I think I’ll have to start holding him on my lap to brush the right side of his body.
Long-haired cats are beautiful, but they have to have their regular grooming! And Dougy’s undercoat is especially thick….
Peacock feather fatigue. Dougy’s trying to tell me something.
Even Andy (on the end table, right hand) senses the peacock feather (left hand, bottom) has seen its day when Dougy doesn’t respond to it any longer!
“I have a suggestion, brother,” meows Andy.
Oh yeah! Andy’s suggestion gets Dougy’s kitty up! Watching birds in the fir outside the back window always raises their spirits!
The kitty boys enjoy lazing at the front door when weather allows it! They even are nice to each other!
Of course, there are other distractions and opportunities.
Andy streaks off to take a nap under the chair in the bathroom, and Dougy…well, I have to stop that kitty boy’s expedition to the countertop. (Some things happen too fast to take photos!)
As always, I note am not compensated by nor do I endorse use of any recognizable brands in the photos.
Dougy’s ears perk up! Doug has something in his hands. Dougy suspects it’s meant for kitties, specifically Dougy the Persian kitty!
Dougy gets up to take a closer look. “Rats! Water!”
On top of it, it was flavored with lime. What a sad moment for my kitty boy!
[I am not promoting, nor am I compensated for featuring that specific water in my blog.]
Dougy’s “horns” are up. Uh oh!
Like the French for food, Dougy puts high value on presentation. Flash the feather in his face…meh! Hide it under the glide ottoman…YAY!
It’s mostly in the open, but Dougy loves to reach under things to get his “prey”.
PurRrrrrRrrrrrRRRR! Oh, does he love to stick his paws under things to feel his “prey”! It’s almost better than “catching” it!
Waiting patiently for “wet kitty food” time…!
Andy loves to survey his world from the PC….
Dougy lost a little fuzz by assuming Andy would submit to him. Andy’s spit held it to my lap board.
Andy stood there flipping his tail: “Which plume do you like best?”
Andy oftentimes gets less time on this blog than Dougy. The primary difference is Dougy claims me and is always hanging out with me to make sure I don’t give attention to Andy.
Andy gets his time, though, and I can take his photo then! Or I can wait for a time he and Dougy interact. Um, “fight”!
