Andy sees me drinking ice water and he wants some ice!
Silly cat! It’s empty. Besides I gave you ice. It’s on the lapboard.
Andy expects ice to show up by magic.
I guess there is a little bit in there, but there’s still a big piece on the lapboard. Andy will have his ice!
Terrific sequence of photos, Doug. At first, it almost looks as if Andy is drinking from a cup, and then it’s obvious that he is exploring it but failing to retrieve ice.
Thanks, Dolly! I love it when Andy is so engrossed in something he lets me do a sequence like that. Moist times, he is aware I’m taking a photo and blinks or turns his head. LOL!
Moody kitty, but they are all like that.
That’s a fact! I suspect kitties see us as somewhat more useful than dogs – opposable thumbs and can openers, after all! – not by much.
Sure – purveyors of food and Greenies.
Is there a fly frozen in the ice, Dougy? Tee hee hee.
LOL! You rascal! You’ve given me a naughty idea for future!
Andy probably thinks the ice in you glass is better than what you put on the lapboard. 🙂
Probably was. LOL! Silly cat. I had a sample of a single malt Scotch this afternoon that Andy thought he wanted to sample, too. I let him smell it – he licked his lips! – but, of course, reminded him scotch isn’t for kitties.
Yeah, better taste by far, but it inevitably would have to end up on some surface outside the glass for my Persian-faced kitty to get to it!
Great row of photos of Andy’s behavior . You are an expert of cat’s psychology, Doug.
I worry to know there are a big bit of ice on your lapboard . I hope it will not be flooded like mine ( with a glass of beer !!!!) 🙂
I kept an eye it. It was a small piece that wouldn’t have caused too much of a flood!
I’ve had mishaps like that, Michel. The worst one was a plate of pancakes with butter and lots of syrup that ended up on the carpet. I had to draw on a whole lot of words I learned in the US Army to express what i felt at that moment. LOL! I made sure the ice on the lapboard got mopped up before it became a problem.
I am very pleased with this series of photos because of that very reason! One or my more successful captures of Andy’s sweet personality! I’m not always so lucky.
You should gather the most of your posts to make a book “my life with two cats ” “Psychological essay.”
BTW , Doug, on the first photo it looks like you are giving the baby bottle to Andy! 🙂
There is a way to download posts…. It’s a thought, Michel!
Sweet, isn’t it?!
I was really pleased with these photos for the way the captured his “I am really interested in this ice” looks! Thanks for commenting on that. I hope to please you and other subscribers this way, so appreciate confirmation I got the job done – thanks to Andy!
Just love him. Remind me of:
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

Andy’s favorite 19th Century English author!`
I didn’t know that!
He is a particular and intellectual kitty after all! I’ve tried to get him turned on to Latin American literature, but he insists he’d prefer to try out Egypt’s Mahfouz Naguib’s Cairo Trilogy on the chance he’d like that better. “But! But! But!” I protest “What about Carlos Fuentes or Gabriel Garcia Marquez???” Stubborn kitty! Maybe he’ll settle for Federico Garcia Lorca, if technically Spanish.
Well, Andy is a quiet but thoughtful kitty after all!
Does he play with the ice, or eat it, Doug? Either way I’m glad he got some given to him.
He plays with it, but mostly he licks it and any melt water.
Ah, the best of both worlds, Doug.
Andy knows! Haha!
Both! I make ice during the hot months and he gets a huge chunk in a water dish so he can enjoy it at his leisure. Mostly, he’ll lick it and drink melt water.
A time capsule drink, brilliant idea!
Yes, there is nothing new in the world, eh?
