04Dec20: Tuh Duh!

Hey Andy! That recent trick was pretty neat. Can you show us another one?


Tuh duh! It’s the “Crinkly-Hair-Wiggling-Between-Kitty-Whiskers” trick! (Often tried, rarely with success….)

“I can do it in my sleep!” Oh, Andrew! You are the marvel of the ages!




03Dec20: Slurp!

Andy insists on being a clean kitty! (Though he often gets poop on his tail feathers…ick!)

(Michel Fauquet- Here’s Andy’s tongue!)

Whew! Intense!

Clean as a whistle! Well done, mon chat! Oncle Michel wanted to see your tongue, and you showed it to him!

02Dec20: day of rest…

Occasionally, Andy and I need to slow down a bit. Being retired and/or a cat is tiring business!

Facebook reminds me of my late kitty, and it is bittersweet to see Dougy doing what he loved to do in life.

01Dec20: “Show me a trick, Andy!”

“Hey Andy!  That’s pretty good skating, but do you think you can show me a better trick?”

I could tell by the set of his ears, the look of pure cattitudiness that Andy was about to knock my socks off!

My word! Jumping Jehoshaphat! That’s some trick, Andy…especially that little ear-flick-head-turn business toward the end. I thought you’d fall off the lapboard then! WOW!

Bada BOOM! (Andy’s encore is great, too!)

Wowsers, Andy. Yes, take a bow!





30Nov20: Andy and I play kitty games…

Rub-bah-dub-dub I rub my kitty boy’s head and back! Andy’d purr but then I’d know he really, really, really likes this!

“Well?!” Andy lets me know “Pissy Kat” is back, and “Pissy Kat” wants to be left alone.

“See! I can ignore you. In fact I am invisible to you!” (“Oh! Oh! Oh! Where did the kitty go!” Hee! Hee! I play along with Andy because it is fun and no harm comes of it.)

Andy checks to see if I’m still looking for an invisible kitty cat. “Oh! There’s Andy!” Hee! Hee! Hee! It is fun playing peek-a-boo with a kitty. Maybe I’ll rub his tummy next. I know that drives him nuts because he knows I know he knows I know that he knows that I know he likes it! 





28Nov20: “Much better…!”

Andy’s snoozing the sleep of the pussy cat!

“What!? What!? What!?” Something disturbs Andy’s snooze.

Barely awake, Andy slowly…

…realizes it’s nothing!

He returns to the position of bliss. Much later, there he is, still blissed out!







27Nov20: “Don’t pet me!”

Andy is upset with Doug because he commits the unforgivable sin of petting him when he is on the end table.

So a move to the television stand seems a good idea. Then the news upsets Doug, who wonders what else is on the television. It’s a James Bond film – “Dr. No”! – on TCM, though it’s near the end. And the villain has a beautiful white kitty in his arms. Doug decides to watch it.

“What!? What!?” Andy moved here for peace and quiet! After lots of weapons fire, explosions,  and people diving off high places in the climax of the film, Andy wonders how he will ever get his 20 hours’ sleep today!

“Good grief! This is ridiculous!” Andy thinks. The world was a lot quieter before people!

Andy moves over to the ottoman. Maybe Doug will leave him alone now. Doug rubs Andy’s head and ears, which he tolerates but is NOT in the mood for!

“I know where you sleep!”

Speaking of which, Andy ends up where he started.


26Nov20: Andy won’t hold still…

Fuzzy… Moved his head!

Rats! Andy just isn’t holding still today!


It is difficult thinking about Thanksgiving this year when so many people will be lucky to have a meal. To the point it is possible, may you have a Happy Thanksgiving. Andy and I will stay at home and give thanks that we have survived this horrible year intact, unlike so many others, including our kitty and kitty brother Dougy.

25Nov20: Dream, dream, dream…

What’s Andy dreaming about?

He appears to be in REM sleep…

…because he hasn’t moved for some time except to breathe.

Ten to one he’s dreaming about caring for his precious!
