Post 373: “…then everything broke loose!”

I no sooner posted yesterday’s whine about nothing was happening here, than Dougy committed the most foul of things: He actually spread out on Andy’s new favorite thing, the mailer from Adrian Smith, Nebraska 3rd Congressional District Representative.

Andy was aghast!

You remember the mailer, right?

Andy's still defending that Smith mailer.

There he was. Dougy noticed Andy’d stepped away from the Smith mailer for a potty break, and plopped right down on “The Mailer”!

I assure you, THIS is not Andy!

La-la-la! Quite pleased with himself, too, that little rascal!

Andy is about to settle Dougy's account!

Things began to happen faster than my little point-and-shoot Nikon could keep up — notice how less focused the story becomes once Andy pops up!

"Look here, Fluffybutt! I'm going to rip that tail off!"

“Look here, Fluffybutt! I’m going to rip that tail off!”

Andy was not amused. The routing was on, Andy Victorious! RAWR!

Andy oversees the mailer. No Dougy in sight!

Shortly before I finished this, Andy and Dougy were working as a team to track down and eat some sort of flying insect that slipped in through the open door, most likely through one of the holes Andy (my screen climber) made in the screen.

They have their priorities! Mostly it is to just get along with each other, sleep, eat, wrestle, play “Catch the Antelope”, and to avoid upsetting each other.

Also, I picked Dougy up this morning, noticed a lump on his butt feathers. Yep! A big mat that managed to slip notice when he was groomed or formed after. I didn’t have anything to trim it out, so pulled gently on the hair till I found the start.

With a small protest from Dougy, I managed to pull it off in one piece since it was mostly made up of loose hair that tangled on a few attached ones. Don’t worry! I was careful to minimize Dougy’s discomfort.

Ordinarily, Dougy is very interested in mats or hair removed from a pet brush. I don’t know what the attraction is, but he’ll eat cat hair if I don’t catch him first!

  1. Oh man I have had one flying flash of black fur chasing a big, fat, soon to die fly through this apt.
    She sounds like a herd of elephants galloping across the floor.
    Looks like those adorable boys of yours are totally enjoying the flier.
    have a good week end that got here all to soon.

  2. There’s nothing more fun, or potentially more dangerous to beloved keepsakes, than two cats chasing one fly. I am SO looking forward to fresh kitten season and the joy of new kittens. Thanks, Doug!
