…then Dougy went to more important kitty business.
Dougy’s upset with me. I ignored him, he thinks, but I was trying to turn off my laptop so I could “scritch” his eats without that weight on my lap.
“Dougy…” He hears me but is ignoring me. Oh! Oh! He’s upset!
He turns toward me, if but a little. Still upset!
“Dougy….” Wow! He’s really upset with me this time!
Dougy finally “let” me rub his head and “scritch” his ears. All’s forgiven and Dougy is in a good mood again!
Dougy sneaks up on me. Next, he rubs on my legs and I stroke his back and tail while he weaves back and forth. Never fails! It’s our morning ritual.
Andy sneaks up from the side and roosts on the recliner back. He wants to know if I’m going to give him kitty medicine, so his trust level is low!
Once he’s decided he can trust me, it’s over to the recliner arm closer to me so I can rub his head and ears. Purr, purr, purr! (Then I give him his kitty medicine. LOL!)
Dougy is minding his own business when…
…an annoyance drops in his face!
He tries to ignore it.
And he does a good job of it, though now there is no chance of sleeping.
Woo hoo! Let’s clean up!
Time to feed the kitties! >Hint! Hint!<
“Stop wiggling! Stop wiggling! Dang it! Look at me!”
“Yeah, now you close your eyes most of the way…!”
“Not the best, but I’ll take it!”
Today, Dougy and I went to the veterinarian’s. He got a “all healed” report on the one eye and a “there’s no evidence of an infection in this one either” report on the other. He was a good boy, of course, and showed he was back to normal in that his weight’s back up where it should be and he hopped off the examination table to explore the room, his normal response to a new place.
The main thing, though I don’t have a brilliant shot of it, is both eyes are healthy and my concerns have been addressed!
Dang! Almost deadline time and neither kitty boy’s doing anything interesting! You know it’s desperate times when I photograph myself preparing to photograph Dougy sleeping.
Andy’s decided to be more present lately. Nice!
Purr! Purr! Purr! Andy enjoys the attention.
Dougy misses being at the center of attention…. Oh! Oh! This could be bad news!
When Dougy wears his ear like this, I wonder if he had too much Caturday fun….
(Oddly, this happens when he cleans up. Andy doesn’t fold his ear back when cleaning, however.)
Finally! I got a decent photo of Dougy’s healed right eye. Now we can enjoy Caturday!
Here’s what that eye looked like a couple weeks ago.
