Post 1747: something of interest…

It doesn’t take much to amuse the kitty boys…

…and Andy and Dougy are curious as heck about this new thing out the front door.

It’s just Memorial Day planters for the family graves,  kitty boys. This year I lucked out and found geraniums, the traditional plant for Memorial Day in my family. I’ll put them out the day before, Sunday. 

Post 1746: hunting season…

A fly got in. Not to worry! Dougy’s on the lookout for the little bugger, and will cat ch it eventually, unless Andy catches it first.

First, it has to fly by him!

Twice daily doses of medicine make Andy very suspicious of me. I try to pet him, give him pleasant attention so he has some sense that we’re on the same team, but…!

Post 1744: breakfast slows him down…

Dougy love, love, loves to play! On the other hand, after a big breakfast of chicken pâté, he’d just as soon slow down, relax, maybe take a nap…so he does!

Post 1743: trust issues…

Poor Andy! He becomes mistrustful after his medicine times, and it takes a bit of time afterwards, even with kitty treats given immediately after dosing, before he lets me get close to him again. Here, he hides behind a chair.

On a positive note, I use the time I hold him before giving him his medicine to pull hair mats apart. He is pretty cool about the process as long as I don’t pull attached hair.

With the matted hair out of the way, I can brush him, collecting tons of kitty hair. He’s looking and feeling a lot sleeker these days, matching Dougy more and more for a soft, sleek pelage!

Post 1740: C’mon, Dougy! Play!

You can dangle it in front of Dougy…

…but it’s his choice if he wants to play. Not playing today, apparently.

Oops! I guess I was wrong!

Post 1739: washing up…

Andy and Dougy share the wet food dish, then wash up together afterwards. It’s always good to see they get along…mostly! Of course, like all siblings, they have their days.

Post 1738: Andy’s fine sunny day…

Andy enjoys a little sun before he cleans up.

“Say what!?” Dougy pops up out of nowhere. Andy’s main concern is the fresh supply of potent Maine ‘nip Doug (the human) just put out. Andy doesn’t like to share ‘nip!

Andy’s had as much ‘nip as he needs for now. Maybe Dougy can have some, too. Or not. Everything’s fuzzy and warm. Oh yeah! It’s Andy’s fine sunny day and it’s time for his nap!

Just in time to make the post deadline today, my Seattle sister sends this new photo of her beautiful tuxedo kitty, Molly:

She writes: “This is Molly’s favorite outdoor activity…when the sun is shining.  Otherwise, she doesn’t like to go outside.”

Here’s the other side of Molly! Her kitty cousins, Andy and Dougy, agree with her that sun is fun!

So does my friend Deborah’s handsome kitty boy. He’s been to France, so he should know, “Le soleil! Le soleil! Le soleil! “ (I think this is André , though light on his chest almost makes him look more like Charles….) 

=(^+^)=

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the kitty boys’ favorite kitties!
