Caturday! Andy knows he has a busy day ahead.
Dozing, a bath, then…!
Andy gets ready to watch a video that claims to be for dogs. Some of his best friends are dogs, Andy thinks, not to mention his curiosity is killing him. He wonders what interests his doggy friends.
Dougy boycotts the viewing, noting he’d not let his innocence go down the drain just to see what interests…”them”! Who knew Dougy harbored “caninophobic” – to coin a word – tendencies?
“Dogs like this?” Oh well! Andy likes it, so he continues to watch.
Dougy continues to ignore the video, even though the sound track includes bird sounds! “Probably about bird cussing a dog chasing a stick,” Dougy guesses.
Dougy pretends to be interested in the news, but can’t ignore the enticing critter sounds on the video soundtrack much longer. He takes a peek!
Andy can’t believe how silly his brother can be! A video featuring things dogs like can be interesting for cats, too. Andy’s a cat, and he thinks so!
He rates this video “Four Paws” because it features close up views of interesting critters and lasts a long, long time. So what if it’s labelled as “for dogs”!? It’s a great kitty video, too.
I had an e-mail from a cat person who said:
I hope you are not going to be upset or offended if I say that I must unsubscribe from your blog, because I simply receive too many posts in my email box from you. Most of the cat blogs I follow have one or two (or less than that) posts a week, which I find just about enough because I do follow so many, and hence get so many email notifications. Getting one or more posts a day from any one blog is just too much, I think.
I do enjoy your babies very much, and will pop in every now and then to see what they are up to, but I hope you understand where I’m coming from…
That caught Andy’s attention. “Yes, I’ve thought that of late, too. He spends so much time on that laptop, he barely spends time with us kitty boys. Dougy’s been acting up a lot lately, too, whining and yowling about this and that and everything.”
Andy grew quiet. I knew he was feeling neglected, too, though he prefers to be left alone when he, um, prefers to be left alone. Poor Dougy is exhausted with all the expectations of always being cute.
Andy thinks I should reduce my postings, too.
[What do you think?]
Andy let me know he wanted to watch videos by hopping onto the recliner arm closest to me. I knew which one he wanted: the string video!
It didn’t take long before he started to hop on the laptop, so I put it on the light stand instead of having a cat on a keyboard on my lap.
Inevitably, he hit something that took the video back to the Google screen.
Dougy pouted in the meantime because Andy blocked the screen…
…which now showed scary stuff that told me Andy found the taskbar and might be changing settings!
Whew! I pulled him off the laptop and ended the video show.
Andy was not amused!
Andy’s Video Rating
Andy rates this video: Three Point Seventy-Five Paws out of Four! He was mesmerized by the large string popping out of nowhere, and watched till he had to climb on the keyboard to catch it! It amused him a bit more than the video in this series that he’s watching in the photos above, which features a smaller string. Size does matter to this kitty boy!
Dougy’s hunting style is to ambush from a hiding space. His prey comes to him!
Andy usually takes care of more important things while Dougy plays….
Dougy doesn’t mind. This way the feather is “me, my, mine”!
“Silly kitty…” Andy thinks!
Dougy love, love, loves the feeling of a peacock feather snagging on his claws. I wonder what he’d do if he saw the bird this feather was attached to!
Andy is very sleepy this morning and can’t be lured off his new happy spot, the top of the stacked cat carriers. When he isn’t on top, he slips into the top carrier for a little privacy and a different place to snooze.
Dougy looks a bit more ready for Freddy! So I get out the wand toy for what promises to be a vigorous, enthusiastic play session!
Whew~ could use a vacuuming by and under the recliner! But for the moment, it’s a dead bust for play. Dougy decides he’s not in the mood.
Since Andy’s still on the stacked carriers…
…Dougy hops up on the computer desk and hangs out on Andy’s sometimes happy place. What cheek!
“So what?” Dougy seems to say, “Andy can come and take it if he thinks he’s a big enough kitty boy!”
It looked promising. Both Andy and Dougy were positioned to play with me.
What!? What!? What!? Where did the kitty boys go!?
Andy decided to nap on the carrier, and Dougy positioned himself to play. It looked promising, but Dougy got bored with the game and decided he’d have a nap, too.
Some days we just don’t connect!
Andy discovered a new video that he love, love, loves!
Nothing to it. Just a string that meanders in and out of the screen. Andy went wild!
He moved from his end table happy place to the floor to the recliner footrest to try to get a better look at the action. (Of course, the photo showing him batting at the screen didn’t turn out because the smart phone “decided” it was time to shut down to preserve battery power. Take my word for it: Andy was sitting on the keyboard, trying to catch the string!)
Here’s the video. It definitely is cat-centric. It is about as boring a video as I’ve ever seen!
Yes, Dougy thought it was fascinating, too!
Dougy sees Andy on the recliner footrest. He comes running from the guest bedroom to let Andy know this is unacceptable!!! (See how demolished his ottoman is from asserting his territorial right to this piece of furniture?)
Andy is watching a kitty video. That is his sin! Well, being too close to the ottoman is but it’s a perfect place to watch kitty videos from. Ask Andy!
Dougy shoos Andy to the recliner back. Andy resumes watching the video from this perch.
Dougy continues to watch Andy and make sure Andy knows the ottoman is his!
