15Jan21: Andy is…





14Jan21: happy cat…

Andy follows the national news. “Curiosity”, you know, is his middle name. (No, it’s “James“, silly!)

Andy’s glad he’s a kitty boy! He has better things to do.

13Jan21: stylin’…

You can be sure, this Kool Kat is stylin’!

“Not now…I’m stylin'”

“Didn’t get the memo? I AM STYLIN‘!

“I don’t get it, Andy. Don’t you want to play?”


“Stylin’ or styling is a verb used to describe something being done with style and elegance.” For example, see first photo.

12Jan21: tired of photo taking, Andy makes his move…

Andy is in an ornery mood today.

So when I try to take his photo, he…

…zooms into the living room…

…and pretends to be asleep. (I see your eyes and they are open, buster!)

10Jan21: bottle cap…

How many days now since Andy knocked the bottle cap under the recliner, then I put the footrest up so he could recover it to continue his play? I think five. Oh well. Last night he finally pulled it out of the “cavern” and took off with it!

09Jan21: taming the beast…

“NO! Don’t touch me! I’m a great, BIG bone-crunching, blood-lapping carnivore!”

“I warn you! I’ll chew your arm off!”

[Purr! Purr!]



The late Dougy resisted affection, too, but all was well once I “scritched” his chin, rubbed his head, or stroked his back. 

08Jan21: “…winner!”


The footrest is great for grooming!

Lick! Lick!

“Pardon me while I address my precious…”

“We have a winner! Whooo!” Andy takes his nap.


07Jan21: cause and effect…

The other day, Andy knocked a toy under the recliner. I opened it up so he could recover the toy. 

Being a kitty, Andy showed no interest in recovering the toy, but lots of interest in the newly elevated footrest. Of course!

Perfect for grooming!

Hey! Lounging’s great at this height and Doug has to get out of his chair to “bother the kitty”, his favorite game. Andy is very pleased with this new favorite place!

“Don’t ever put the footrest down!” (OK, Andy. You the cat!)


The late Dougy wasted no time taking over any new boxes, no matter how small.

06Jan21: ‘nip time…

It’s on the table, Andy.

Oh you cat! What’s the matter?

Oh, I haven’t rubbed it yet so the oils pop out to entice you! (You’re not too spoiled, are you?)
