26Jul21: a bit of this and that…

My old 69th Signal Company (Photo) pal, Dan, “messaged” this photo to me a few days ago. That’s Dan on the far left and me on the far right. Half a century after the fact, the setting seems familiar yet not familiar. It’s probably on the sound stage where we still and motion picture photographers spent our time when not on assignments.

Andy love, love, loves it when I put a straw inside a magazine. He tries to take it out, play activity that seriously amuses my kitty boy! Cheap fun. He’ll play longer with a straw than just about anything.

25Aug21: Including a snow adventure for Dougy!

Andy plays when Andy is in the mood. Period!

Purr! Purr! Purr!

Dougy loved the snow. I let him take a little snow adventure for this video.


24Jul21: A first visit to the groomer and play time…

Their groomer recommended a less extreme teddy bear cut that looks much nicer on Persians, I think! This time, though, it was their first time at the groomers, and she just did a shampoo and detangle on their coats. 

Andy gets a surprise while snooping on a box by the waste paper basket….

Dougy always enjoyed a good play session!

23Jul21: Andy and Dougy at play and an incident…

 Andy and Dougy love, love, loved it when my late brother Dick came for his annual visit!

No one admits to anything around here….

Play time for Andy and Dougy!

22Jul21: Andy and Dougy at home….

What’s Dougy’s plan for Andy?

Classic Dougy!

Andy joins Dougy for a bit of back door entertainment..

21Jul21: Andy and Dougy being cats…of course!

Head rubs are always welcome here!

The only thing I saw in the video that was naughty was the table incident…!

A little bit of territorial business between the kitty boys!



20Jul21: more videos

Mostly they got along.

“Where’s the birds?”

The back door has surprises.

Oops! Poop caught in his tail feathers – dang that floofiness! – so Doug had to dump Dougy half way to work it out of his hair. Neither of us had a good time.

18Jul21: “You sure you want to try that?”

Oh boy! A soft, “floofy” kitty cat!

Andy is suspicious…

…when I reach out top touch his soft, “floofiness”. (Who can resist!?”)

Andy gives me his “You sure you want to try that?” look, which is to say, I probably should leave him alone for now. 

17Jul21: bugged…

While Andy caught up on international news…

…this masked hunter* bug stopped by the end table.

When I told Andy he just missed the bug, he was sad. Awww!
