Andy let me know he wants me to follow him to the kitchen. First, he scratches the cactus scratching post. Then he hops on the red walker in the foreground. A short ride to the computer chair, then he hops on the computer chair back to wait.
Yes, I have to “scritch” him and tell him what a wonderful kitty boy he is.
I know the routine: go into the kitchen and prepare kitty food. Then I put it down in a spot to the left of the secrétaire you see in the upper lefthand of the photo.
I tell Andy, “Here’s the kitty food and you are the only kitty here!” I head back to the front room, stopping to “scritch” Andy again and bump heads with him. “Purr! Purr! Purr!” says Andy.
When he’s ready, he heads over to eat the kitty food. You know kitties: routine is important!
For the record, Andy looks ruffled because I took the photo after I “scritched” him up and down his back.
Routine is very important, otherwise we have a very loud uprising. Mr Andy is both patient and gentle in comparison.
He hasn’t been a very vocal kitty. The only time he ever raised his voice was when he was making a loud noise to get Dougy to play a game they made up between them.
Do you miss the sound effects? We have a trio here: Beba, the mezzo, Pyshka squeaking as a bad coloratura, and Barmalei occasionally punctuates in dramatic baritone. It is pretty funny actually.
Yes, though I really appreciate the purring and other vocalizations when they happen!
But you don’t have loud demands, do you?
No. Andy meows softly and pats my arm or leg to let me know he wants something.
Andy looks happily scritched and ruffled! 🙂
He purred and we bumped heads!
Life is not simple with Andy, Doug! 🙂
How true, Michel! You’ll see how true when you read tomorrow’s post!
A well established and reliable daily routine always includes scritches!
Absolutely! And regular Greenies treats and the “mousie in the kitchen cabinets” patrol.
You’re a really good cat daddy, Doug. ☺️🐈❤️
I am well trained, John! LOL!
