Post 2202: Sometimes there’s something good on TV…


Andy and Dougy started out relaxing by me, then…

“Too Cute” came on the TV. Andy heard the kittens mewing and he was hooked!



Post 2201: The joke’s on you, Andy!…


You know by now Andy love, love, loves to block captioning on movies and programming on the television.


I haven’t the heart to tell him he’s just blocking the captioning on a commercial here. Good kitty!


Post 2200: Dougy proclaims it to be an oldie but a goodie!

No $30 toys for Dougy! He still likes this tear strip off the dry kitty food.

Yes, he will even give up a snooze to play with it!

Post 2199: Caturday is a day of rest…

The kitty boys (Dougy on left) had an exhausting week. Today, they decided, will be a day of rest.

Post 2198: moving the cat…

Andy blocks English language films, too. The war is endless! So are the strategies for getting my kitty boy out of the way. (Yeah, I could get up and physically move him out of the way, but then I’d have nothing to post for you!)

The new floofy toy creates a distraction Andy can’t resist…

…for it mesmerizes him in place, a new place! Now I can enjoy the movie.


Post 2197: kitty fishing…


Successful kitty fishing takes new toys from time to time. Andy examines a fuzzy thingy attached to a pole for potential kitty play. 

Rawr! This works for Andy! 





Mr. Bowie, a Belgian cat

Today is a day of sorrow. Herman posted the death notice of his beloved Bowie. I’ve followed his posts for years and am barely able to focus on the reality of this beloved cat being history, gone.

RIP Mr. Bowie, May 19, 2009 – September 11, 2019.


Farewell, My Sweet Mr. Bowie

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


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


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


Yeah, you, kitty boy. You!


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!
