Post 1011: Jeez! Not something else wrong!

Now I’m having problems transferring photos from my camera memory card to the computer. I swear…! (And I have!) Nothing worked right once I got back, and the string of irritations continues. It’s a good thing I’m basically a happy person or I’d be crushed by circumstances by now. I will try to find an alternative way to do this task.

In the meantime, I guess it’s retro Andy and Dougy photos. A large part of the people following this blog haven’t seen most of the early photos, so I’ll put up a few of those till I work out this problem. (It seems to be the port on the computer since I can view the photos using the camera.)dougy outside

Dougy would like to be an outside cat. So many scents! So much to see and do! Unfortunately for him (and Andy), I don’t believe in letting pets roam.

In my neighborhood, there is relatively little traffic and it is moving between 10 and 15 mph. You only have to go a couple lanes over to the West to get to a major street with lots of fast traffic, however, and a bit farther East brings you to another fast traffic street. South a couple blocks, and you have a highway. Not good for cats or dogs.  andy on washer 120615 a

Andy used to like to sleep on the washer. Since I moved to the big bedroom, he prefers to sleep close by on an end table closest to where I am. That way he can feel safe and get an occasional scritching if I wake up in the night and see him there. He especially likes it when I scratch his neck and chin. Those cute little ears need scritching, too, and that really gets him purring!

Dougy comes around at night, too. He just stays long enough to get some loving and to knead my arm through the bedding. He’s purring the whole time from when he jumps on the bed till when he hops off. I don’t know for sure where he’s sleeping at night now but I suspect it is his old favorite, the top carrier of the two stacked by the recliner. It’s high, it’s protected, and it seems to be a perfect cat cave!
