Andy still senses Dougy’s presence on the ottoman, and is hesitant to get on it unless…
…the lapboard Andy’s claimed as part of Andylandia is on top of the ottoman. He’s also marked both top corners of my laptop’s screen, so I guess I use my laptop at Andy’s pleasure as well. Cats!
Maybe Dougy’s ghost was deciding whether or not to give Andy purrmission to take over the ottoman.
I hope Andy eventually realizes he can perch on it without the lapboard.
You are obviously deluded. Everything is Andylandia now
Somewhat, if not perfectly!
So sorry to hear about Dougy. This year has dished out a lot of misery. Sending virtual hugs.
That is a fact, Peggy. I personally can’t imagine much more happening in 2020 to top what’s happened so far.
All we can do is hang on for the ride.
He smells his departed brother and he has such a sad expression, poor dear!
Exactly. Dougy is still everywhere in the smell realm, and Andy knows the smell.
I would venture that perhaps Andy is still expecting his brother to come back.
He looks toward places Dougy would show up, so I feel sad that what you suggest is true, Dolly.
So sad! I feel for you both.
Andy is right to respect this ottoman . Even for me Ottoman=Dougy.
ps ; I transfered your apprecied comment from facebook below my wordpress blog!!The link I put on facebook is for my old Xanga friends
Why, what happened to Dougy? Is he alright?
Sadly, I found Dougy dead on July 15th morning. I never learned what happened to him – he and Andy just turned nine years old on July 1st, so he wasn’t really old – because a requested post mortem wasn’t done for some reason.
Oh I am so sad to hear that. Did he have any symptoms etc? My Coco is 14 years old. And she seems to be loosing weight, no matter how much she eats. We took her to the Dr. But to do a examination costs a lot here. So we look after her now. But she is still the same.
None that I noticed. I had a very thorough examination done on his a few months ago because I thought he looked thinner than usual. The test results came back showing he was very healthy.
…and they cost a lot here, too. I think it was almost US$170 for the bloodwork, but it was very comprehensive, covering four pages of tight, small print.
dood…yur S scratcherz prettee awesum tho 🙂 ♥♥
It was his specialty…
Bless him, love his eyes!
Pretty, aren’t they?
They seem to respect the deceased cat’s territory, giving it a wide berth, at least for a while. Those old kitty ghosts hang around for a bit! 🙂
The scent is still there, I’m sure. The ottoman in particular must have strong Dougy scent since he spent lots of his day there.
He scratched at it al lot, and with scent glands between his kitty toes, I bet he left quite a few “my territory” signs for Andy.
We’re having some nice cooler weather at the moment, but the forecast for Saturday is now 102 here. The kitties will be sleeping it off in the air conditioning.
That he did. The ottoman was especially marked because he did it every time Andy or I got near it, which was, of course, several times a day. The fact all four corners are ragged and scratched out verifies that!
Aww. Look at that horsey tail! 🐎
…his best feature, I think!
love the idea and the name andylandia… that sounds like a good place ;O)
It has grim rules and a dictator who enforces them! LOL!
