The fan “floofs” Andy’s tail while he sleeps.

Post 2195: I can’t follow the story anyway….

IMG_20190909_013946

Don’t play coy with me, kitty. Can’t you see there’s something happening on the screen and you are blocking the subtitles?!

IMG_20190909_014126

Dang you Andrew James Thomas! I’m having a hard enough time following this Thai documentary without you blocking the subtitles!

IMG_20190909_014342

Yeah, you, kitty boy. You!

IMG_20190909_014504

Good grief! Can’t you take care of your precious somewhere else??

Maybe this is of interest… No? >Sigh!<

Andy takes another look at the television, then hops up on the stacked carriers for a nap. Blocking television subtitles is exhausting kitty work!

Post 2194: Andy’s newspaper hunt…

Andy knows the newspapers are a good place to find what you’re looking for.

You even can find (improbably) mockingbirds!

Cheeky bird!

Post 2192: passing through…

IMG_20190906_173857

Dougy’s passing through on important kitty business. No stopping for anyone or anything!

IMG_20190906_173859

Woo hoo! I got a nice handful of kitty tail when MacDougall rushed by, if nothing else.

Here’s some oldie but goodies of Dougy since he isn’t cooperating today.

Post 2191: “Who’s my kitty?”

IMG_20190905_120333

Andy stops by and perches on the recliner armrest closer to me. 

IMG_20190905_120248

I ask him “Who’s my kitty?” Does he want “kitty luv” or is he just spying on me in case I’m headed to the kitchen. (You know…will I pass by where >hint! hint!< the kitty treats are?)

IMG_20190905_120603

Who knows? Maybe he just wants to be “scritched”. Andy is, if anything, inscrutable!

IMG_20190905_120125

Oh yeah! Scratch his ears and he leans into the hand to increase the pressure. Andy is sure about one thing: ear “scritching”  is good. Really good!

IMG_20190905_120618

“Meee-yowwww!” Yes, Andy really, really, really likes this!

Post 2190: small pleasures…

IMG_20190904_021503

I don’t have to convince Dougy he wants some “scritches”! It’s a small pleasure both kitty boys enjoy.

IMG_20190904_021506

That’s the spot!

SURGERY UPDATE: The new fistula is done, without drama. Now I have exercises to do using what I converted to a cat toy after the first time I had a fistula created. They didn’t play much with it, I happened to know where they left it, found it and now will use it for the directed period of time.

This is a cat, erm, hand exerciser used to help mature the fistula to a state where it can be used. 

 

Post 2189: surgery day…

The site of the fistula that had to be abandoned after it ruptured healed nicely and the swelling’s down. In the meantime, this array of catheters serves me for dialysis till approximately the first part of December. I get a new dialysis fistula created surgically today, Wednesday September 4th.

This is how I hope the kitty boys are till I get back from surgery in Scottsbluff.

IMG_20190820_010311

This is more likely what they will be up to! 

Post 2188: Just like old times!

IMG_20190902_132441 (1)

It is possible for the kitty boys to get along like good kitty brothers. 

IMG_20190902_132447 (1)

Right, MacDougall?

IMG_20190902_132450

What meow you, Andrew?

IMG_20190902_132432 (1)

Even the television audio asks the question, “To be honest with you, I haven’t thought about it.” Andy and Dougy exist in the Big Now, where such questions are silly. When the kitty boys get along, I just enjoy the peace and quiet. Doesn’t matter why they are behaving, just that they are!

Post 2187: Heads or tails…?

Somehow Andy makes himself comfortable on the stacked carriers.

IMG_20190901_092151

Looks uncomfortable to me!
