05Apr21: Here’s Andy!

Here’s Andy!

[Boop!]

[“Scritch”!]

[“Floof”]

Andy’s putting up with a lot today!

 

 

02Apr21: why cats vocalize…

I share kitty videos with Andy. This one is about cat vocalizations and why they do it. Andy assured me it was old hat to him, but he noticed I don’t always “get it” when he tries to tell me something. I do “get” the chattering noise they make when there is prey outside, and Andy is interested in what the television kitties are chattering about!

Birds! 

Well, Andy is getting a message from the television because his “horns” are up!

Boring! Andy already knows all this stuff.

Andy makes one last check. Those birds might just be real for a change. No. So he leaves the room. Nothing good on television!

 

01Apr21: the challenge…

In an attempt to prove or disprove the axiom “at night all cats are grey”, Mr. Hand photographs “a cat at night”. Ah ha! There’s “a cat” and it is night! 

Looks black to me! (No cat was harmed making this post, though Andy insisted he earned some Greenies for cooperating.)

31Mar21: making pretty…

Andy is blessed with abundant “pretty”!

But he wants you to know…

..it takes lots and lots of time to maintain it!

Hee! Hee! Now that that’s taken care of, Andy takes time to play cute!

30Mar21: a slow day…

“Hey Andy! What should we do for the blog for today?”

That was easy, Andy and I decided these two photos are enough. We’re kind of tired from a busy morning.

29Mar21: the post card

“Happy Easter”

Andy and the late Dougy were intrigued by Valentine. Valentine looks nearly identical to them! Regardless, Andy and I enjoyed the early Easter card from Valentine & family! 

Andy? Dougy? No, this is the beautiful Valentine!

Do you think Valentine is scared by this plush spider?

Says Andy, ” We kitties are never frightened!”

28Mar21: the critic…

Andy likes to go black & white when he critiques a black & white film. It’s a kitty boy thing.

Is this going to be a “deep” philosophical film? There’s a question right on.

Silly dialogue! And who’s “Roger”?

Good grief! What’s “Sam” got to do with it?

[At this point I had to remove Andy from the room because of the barfing sounds….]

27Mar21: Turkish delight!

One of Andy and my favorite videos is a Turkish documentary about seven cats of Istanbul, Kedi. The Turks, it turns out,  are very much kitty lovers, and Andy and I wish we could go to Istanbul to enjoy their kitty cat culture and meet the stars of this video!

Short of a jet trip to Istanbul, there is a Turkish blogger friend I follow for her sensitive and loving photos of her cats and those that frequent her yard, nia.

“when it snowed”

The kitties attracted me to Nia’s photography, but that is only part of the charm of her blog. You also get to see modern Istanbul, rural Turkey, Ottoman-era architecture, nature, and any and everything this lovely person finds interesting through her excellent photos.

Here’s a “sample” post about her cat İbiş:

Little Monster or Little Big Panther? ‹ photographyofnia ‹ Reader — WordPress.com 

Cat people will recognize the charms and characteristics of cats are universal when they read about İbiş. Nia’s description of the difficulties trying to photograph her cat are familiar, as are other things İbiş does that vex and intrigue “People of the Cats”. LOL!
