Andy enjoys a good Western when there are lots of horses and cows.
He watches for a time but…
…loses interest if the animals get lost from the plot.
You can almost read his mind here!
Time for a nap.
Texas Ruby Red grapefruit season! Love it and make sure I get in on it from start to finish.
We watched a series called 1883 and every time it started, Floki jumped on the coffee table to watch with us. He usually lasted only five minutes, but it was funny that it happened every time the show started.
LOL! I noted it above in another comment, but wouldn’t it be fun to speak Catinese so one could find out what interested our kitty buddies in a television program or film? Animals I get, but other things…?
I wish I could talk to them even for one day.
Well, I can see Andy’s point. What’s a Western without horses and cows?!
An Eastern? LOL! I live in a part of the US with lots of ranch culture, and I even worked on them as a summer job when I was a university student. That makes me a bit smart about the work and stresses of managing cattle from horseback. When I see this activity in a film, I am a bit critical to the point I do or don’t enjoy the film based on what they show.
Come to think of it, you’ve probably seen the video of cowboys herding cats! I’m sure that one’s completely wrong in every way, but hilarious!
Yes, it is a favorite of mine. Just a side note, my university major was English/Journalism/Advertising, with the idea I’d become an advertisement writer. I still enjoy advertisements that are well conceived and executed. The herding cats one is a classic!
Andy and my dad would get along well, dad loooves westerns!
A good western always is a surprise to me, but films like “3 Godfathers’ redeems the genre from dreck like the Tim Holt “B” movies. I think I dislike the genre as a rule because I know that the way they got horses to fall over in early times was a wire across their paths. That frequently harmed them or caused injuries requiring killing the horse. I’ve never been able to watch 1939’s “Stagecoach” because of this abuse of animals.
Wow Doug, I had no idea! That is so terrible! I don’t mind watching them with my dad, but they aren’t my favorite kind of movie. Shame on those folks. Today we are miles ahead of that terrible abuse but not far enough. For the life of me I can’t understand why the heck anyone would abuse a dog, cat, horse, bird and so on. 😡
Andy has seen all the interesting parts to him. All that energy expended in maintaining attention must be replenished with a good nap! 🙂
LOL! Andy has that part down. Note, too, he selects a nap spot to watch television, anticipating the inevitable.
I would be asleep like Andy. I just can’t get into westerns.
Very few westerns keep me awake. LOL! I’m very much a great story-cinematography-director fan. Any combination of those three will get me to watch a movie any time. Comedic films of a pre-naughty mouth era I enjoy, too, especially films like the Thin Man series.
Cats and TV is an interesting topic. Xenia will watch CatTV for a while, but gets bored. Out old cat Smidgen was always interested in Spock on Star Trek, and would sit in my wife’s lap to watch it as long as Spock was in an episode.
LOL! It’s times like that one wishes being able to speak Catinese were possible! Andy’s late brother, Dougy, didn’t watch television, though he did like “for cat” videos, especially fish and birds.
I like a good Western
Westerns and movies taking place in cold places or deserts are on my “don’t watch unless they had excellent reviews” list. John Wayne movies are the same, though he made some really good movies I managed to watch and enjoy.
My kits don’t even watch animals on TV but when there are animal sounds however they jump up in the window to try and see ‘whats that’ 😺😸
Cool! Andy doesn’t watch much television, but those programs with animl sounds get him interested, then he watches.
So Andy likes some Bruce Willis movies (he over acts 😉 )
..but I don’t, so I don’t imagine he’s ever seen one…!
we can no longer watch gun-events, they jump up and thnk the hunt is on LOL
Woof! I’m sure Andy would be put off by the gun sounds.
Is that “Cat Ballou?” I saw the movie at a drive-in when I was too young to understand the general plot, but I liked the music. Like Andy, however, I fell asleep midway through the movie. 😸
Yes, that’s the one! I’ve seen it completely through once at the theatre and once or twice on television.
