10Jul21: more early videos of Andy and Dougy…

Typical Andy and Dougy behaviors! Andy always stayed in one place and Dougy wanted to explore! The kitty brothers were just a bit over five months old in this video. Their eye colors were set, and you can appreciate Dougy’s beautiful copper -colored eyes since he makes closeups at various times. Their Persian coats are starting to be more typical.

This bathroom window is a cat favorite in this home. The yellow heirloom climbing rose just outside the window is a favorite hang out for birds, so…!

Weren’t they handsome teenagers?! 

Classic Andrew James Thomas behavior. If you can’t take the pain, don’t touch his tummy!  Boy, were they wound up that day! Reminds me of that earlier video when they were really little and Dougy couldn’t resist Andy’s tail! What goes around comes around, eh?!


I wasn’t aware I was doing it, but these recent postings of videos are a bit of a tribute to my late kitty, Dougy, who would die on July 15th last year, just two weeks after Andy and Dougy’s ninth birthday The first anniversary of his passing is around the corner and Andy and I miss his ornery, comedic, exploratory self. These videos remind me of what a fun cat he was, how handsome he was, how extraordinary his copper-colored eyes were. Because they were brothers and I raised both from kittenhood, I always thought of them as Andy-and-Dougy, one being almost, always to be together. RIP Dougy. The last two videos show how they were brothers together, squabbling, playing, being kitty boys~!

Yes, he slipped out the door when I was checking the snowfall and went exploring and I didn’t miss him till hours later.
