Post 1896: The kitty boys are back!

IMG_20181104_071823

We’ve had a grumpy few days, thanks to a laptop giving up the ghost, but my new laptop means the kitty boys and I can return to regular posting.

What’s going to fall apart next? I suspect it’s time for the smart phone to go belly up. I mean, don’t expensive things always fail close to expensive holidays like Christmas? And it’s about the only bit of technology I use that’s left to croak!

Dougy’s barely awake.

Up all night catting around, buster?!

Post 2290: day of rest…

20191212_170254

Dougy says it’s a day of rest. I, for one, haven’t noticed anything different from every other day!

Post 2289: meh…

This what I see now. It looks like the best I can do for today’s post is, as we used to say at my US Army company, “Our best is not too good.” Of course, that was a parody of mottoes we saw posted everywhere our photo jobs took us, but sometimes the best requires some kitty activity to be interesting. No idea where Andy is at the moment.

[pregnant pause…]

No sooner said than Andy was very available for posing.  Hint! Hint! Somebody’s kitty boy thinks a kitty treat is appropriate for now. Treat finished, it was “ta ta for now, buster”.

In the meantime, Dougy committed one of the few “no-no’s” of the house: He hopped up on the dining room table and made himself comfortable. (Of course, all the books and stuff on the table just now probably will be on the floor before long.)

 

 

Post 2288: the kitty boys were kittens once…

Andy's first day home

I came across these photos of the kitty boys when they were really young. I’d stuffed them in some obscure file that popped up today. Above, the day I brought Andy home for the first time. I’d just picked him up at the veterinarian clinic, where he and his mommy and litter mates were, Awww!

dougy a month at home

Dougy always wanted to be near me when I was on the computer, and here he is. a sleeping little angel about two and a half or three months old. I’m getting wetness in the eyes. What’s that about? Awww!

 

 

Post 2287: incredulous…

20191209_084424

I notice Andy pays attention to what’s on the television even when it isn’t kitty games and videos.

20191209_084626

Periodically, he’ll look back at me with this look that tells me something he sees makes him…

…incredulous. I found the hearings a bit astonishing myself, kitty. (I think his problem was the interrogators who yelled or talked loudly. Cats don’t like a racket. Me either. I turned to the Food Network and followed a holiday baking contest after I reached my tolerance level for tomfoolery.)

Post 2286: Dougy poses, nakedly…

20191208_040333

Dougy is well aware of his sexy appeal. He always stops mid-lick when taking a bath in case I have a camera on him.

“How’s this one, Doug the human? Too sexy? (Well, the blurred focus would be sexy for an old movie star, but Dougy is in prime time for a kitty boy….)

Good grief! Now Dougy’s giving me multiple options for head shots! Upside down. Right side up. Really close in!

20191208_040303

Yeah, that’s about right, Dougley! Upside down with eye wink! That’s your best shot! But maybe we should brush you down next time for a smoother, cool look. You look a bit like a neighborhood stray with that scruffy look. 

Post 2285: “Elementary, my dear Watson!”

Andy posed nicely for yesterday’s blog post, then I ran into downloading problems. “Stupid smart phone! Why is it queuing my downloads instead of stuffing them into my e-mail account on the laptop? Again and just when I need that photo for my next blog post!?”

Andy thought and thought and thought because I upset him saying “those words” I save for technologically challenging moments. Dang, it’s a burden being a Boomer’s cat! Stupid smart phone…!

“Have you tried this-and-that?” Such a wise kitty. Of course! Randomly trying this-and-that always works. And it did again this time! You know, the infinite monkey theorem* approach to technology is a winner!

*“The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type any given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. In fact, the monkey would almost surely type every possible finite text an infinite number of times.”

Post 2284: had to post something…

 

Once again, I’m having quirky problems sending photos from my smart phone to my laptop. Sooo, here are a couple kitty videos from the archives till I figure it out…again!

Post 2283: Oh, brothers…!

Good grief, Andy! Get a grip, Dougy! It’s only a newspaper. There’s plenty for both of you!

You’re brothers! Act like it!

20191203_022812

But not Cain and Abel….

(Not to worry! Shortly after this brouhaha, the kitty boys were back to “I love you brother.” No, I love you more!” >Purr! Purr! Purr!< Cats!)

Post 2282: a danger fraught mission…

20191203_021908

Andy’s minding his own kitty boy business when…

…Doug (the human) comes over to annoy him. Andy tries to discourage him with his “Horrific Bloody Scary Toenails From Hell” but Doug is on a mission…

…to get some photos for today’s kitty boy blog! (What I go through for you, my faithful friends on the Internet!)
