Post 1318: thanks and a new way to wear ears…

This blog has grown faster than I can keep up with in one important regard: I’ve gotten way, way behind in thanking new people who follow it. When new follows were rare, I sent a personal thank you to each new follow. It was the polite thing to do.

If you haven’t received a personal thank you from me when you signed up, please accept my apologies for being negligent. I do appreciate each and every one of you! Please accept this less personal but heartfelt “thank you” now. Thanks! Heck, have a hug on me, too, because you are special!

This blog nearly doubled in followers in the past ten months, something that amazes me, frankly, since it is a simple blog about kitties, mostly, and an occasional aside about me. Now that this aside is over, here’s what you come for: Kitty cats! In this instance, Dougy and his new ear style.


Traditional style ears.

Styling it! Dougy’s new fashion.


As Dougy’s guardian, I told him he wasn’t going anywhere wearing his ear that way! Scandalous! So I folded it back into traditional style before he polluted Andy with his silly ear style. What’s next? A catnip leaf tattoo? You have to nip these things in the bud.

  1. Didn’t know your back story – I just came for the kitties – but so glad you are all together and the kitty boys don’t have any piercings yet (unless microchipping counts)!

  2. Been enjoying your blog. I’m glad you have Andy and Dougy to keep you and your readers entertained. By the way have you ever wondered what name they have for you? Just a thought.

  3. Benji has the same style! I was going to post something on this fashion several months ago… I guess we have to now as fashion changes fast and we may be behind before we know it.

  4. I don’t find it hard to believe you’ve become popular, Doug, just look who your side-kicks are!! Now who can resist those faces?
    [glad to see you’re keeping their rebellious phases under control!!]

    • The blog started to gain after I got my first kitty, the late, great Louie, but Andy and Dougy definitely and quickly became the stars once they made their appearance in 2011. All of that charm had to be shared! (Thank you for your long support o the adventure of the kitty boys, too! You were one of the first regulars to dome around.)
