Silly cat! Dougy hinted he wanted me to rub his head and face, then assumed this position with one eye open to keep track of me till I did it. Creepy!
This was his position at the start of his campaign to get rubs. Then he did a huge stretch that brought his hind legs together. What you can’t see is he held his front legs close together and waved them to try to get me to do my duty. Yes, after I took the photos, I gave him lots of face and head rubs. I threw in ear scritches for good measure. Dougy was pleased!
(Even though the kitty boys got shorter than usual haircuts the last time, I’m amazed how floofy they still look.)
Dougy knows what he wants and has no trouble communicating it. 🙂
That he does! (And he’s a whiner, so it’s best to pay attention or have to deal with whining.)
Yes, the one eye cracked open that follows one about until the cat gets their wishes fulfilled! I’ve seen the one eye maneuver, tracking the human like radar. 🙂
The kitties always look good, Doug! 🙂
They are doing well, Lavinia. I do have an appointment today for Andy to get a blood pressure check. It isn’t his favorite activity, but it’s good to keep on top of his blood pressure.
My sister sent this thank you to you: Please thank your bloggers for the condolences, and now Molly’s and Sox’s memories will be together in Elbert’s garden. That is such a kind thing they do.
I worked on Elbert’s garden for a bit yesterday, part of spring cleanup. I finally got that old tarp on the greenhouse down, too. Much to do out there still. Spring is coming up quickly!
Elbert’s Garden count now has Elbert, your brother, Sox, and now Molly. Nia’s Princess Surya has the east end cap.
Let me know if anyone is missing.
You have them all. Thank you!
Please add Freckles, my first kitty who die after being spayed. She was a grey tabby, really sweet, a shelter rescue. I only had he a short time, but she won my heart the first day I had he home. I put her on my chest and she started purring instantly. She has a huge purr for such a small cat, and it vibrated on my chest! I g=fell asleep for about an hour. When I woke up, she was still purring on my chest! That was the kind of kitty she was. It was a shock to lose her so suddenly and after what should have been a routine procedure.
And I’ll add Louie, too.
Looks like Louie was already listed. I have the photo updated on the Gift of Life page.
Great! I have posted his photos, videos, and story before.
Gorgeous pics, really capturing the personality.
Yes, that’s my Dougy all right! Thanks! He’s a sweet cat, but that’s a Persian kitty trait I guess.
they are well prepared for this horrible season, its the best to be wrapped in fluffy furs ;O)
How true…though it’s been a very mild winter so far. It’s been in the low single digits here when it should be (typically) lots of subs-zero weather where I live. Of course, if you live in Dougylandia and Andylandia, it’s a perpetual summer thanks to electric heating!
The boys look very woolly!
That they do.l Cat fur grows in clumpish-looking clusters that don’t reveal themselves till the kitties get a teddy bear cut or similar shortening of their Persian locks! The end result: they are not only floofy, they are extremely soft to the touch. (Of course, they are that way with long Persian locks, too!)
