Post 623: My cats lead a dog’s life.

If you read this blog regularly, you are familiar with my two cats, Andy and Dougy, and how they work hard to protect the place from crickets, spiders, and other intrusions from the outside. They are warriors!

Just this morning, while I sat on the edge of my bed, blankets over my lower half till I could make up my mind which way I wanted to go, back to bed or get up, Dougy noticed something of interest and pounced. Oops! It was my toes wiggling under the blankets! Maybe that wasn’t the best example.

Never mind!

What do the boys really do to earn their keep?

Dougy, watching birds at the feeder across the lane, assures birds don't try to fly through the window pane.

I interrupt Dougy, watching birds at the feeder across the lane. He assures birds don’t try to fly through the window pane.

Dougy, isn't that Andy's favorite spot? What if he sees you there?

"Did I just hear him in the other room?"

“Did I just hear him in the other room?”

Well, if you did, Dougy, it was because Andy was snoring in his sleep…!

Oh, did I wake you, Andy??

Oh, did I wake you, Andy??

"Rub my nose, human."

“Rub my nose, human. Then I’ll bite your hand.”

Yes, my cats lead a dog’s life!
