Post 1368: cats, complications and lost drafts…

I accidentally changed something on my laptop yesterday, one of those “one clicks” that totally alters how the laptop works, the screen looks, and…! You’ve been there, I am sure. 

I managed to get the boo-boo “fixed”, which is to say I can use the dang laptop, but everything is upside down, backwards, and alien. I hate these damn things! But I have to use them to do this blog and all the other little things 21st Century people use them for. Ugh! At least I have a couple kitty photos for you.

Oh yes. I had my blog ready to publish and it disappeared somewhere into the ether…. This is my second attempt.

This is one of Andy’s favorite perches. especially if I’m sitting in the recliner too. He knows he can get a good “scritching” in this position, with me giving special attention to that little spot between his eyes he can’t reach: It’s guaranteed to start his purr engine running if you rub it just so! Andy is a small kitty with a huge, rumbling purr. He also loves having his cheeks and the top of his head rubbed.

One sure way to bring both Andy and Dougy running is to open a door. That’s Andy in front, and Dougy looking toward the open door.That open door gives Dougy ideas. He is my escape artist! Given the opportunity, as noted in other posts, he’d follow his nose to Fargo, so I have to be very careful about making sure the door latches or I have me a fugitive kitty!

Today, after my neighbor Gary helped me bring my groceries in, I put my car in the parking spot. Apparently, the door didn’t latch, and Gary spotted Dougy following his nose again. He made it about five feet (1.524 meters) into his 660 mile (1062 kilometers) trip to Fargo before Gary snatched him up and put him back in the house.  Whew!
