18Nov20: “Is mise Anndra” / “I am Andrew” in Scots Gaelic

Andy is named after the patron Saint of Scotland as many of you know.

Does he know his name?

I think so.

17Nov20: Stay warm or get Andy his Greenies treats…

Andy has to take off for some important kitty business, but I…

…stay warm under my quilt. (Andy probably wants me to follow him to give him Greenies treats.)

Andy’s back. Hint! Hint!

Hint! Hint!

Hint! Hint!

It’s a battle of wills now. Will Andy get his Greenies or will I stay wrapped up and warm?

Silly me! Of course Andy gets his Greenies. Now he’s taking his post Greenies bath! 

16Nov20: Carhenge is fun!

An old photo post card of Carhenge, my town’s claim to fame. 

Come on, Andy! It’s lots of fun!



15Nov20: snow day at the window…

Window cats are watching the scene! You never know if cottontail rabbits, squirrels, other cats, or birds will show up to entertain the curious kitty boy. Toward the end of the short video, Andy’s “horns” are up!

Today (actually the 9th when I took the photo and video…), Andy got to enjoy the scene out the front dining area window. If sparrows were scarce, the neighbor’s Thanksgiving turkey display is new and interesting to my kitty!  

14Nov20: Pestopher’s Andy’s pal now it seems…

When Pestopher showed up, I was sure Andy would -RAWR! – get his kitty on.

This not a kitty boy getting his kitty on! Pestopher is bugging around with impunity.

What’s wrong with this picture?!

13Nov20: How does Andy sleep like that?


Andy switched positions on the end table. I can’t believe he’s comfortable!

His spine is crushed against the lamp…,

… his head is turned upside down the way cats do…,

…and the fan is blowing hard enough he must have to consciously hold it back. I wonder how he can sleep in this position!

12Nov20: We let Pestopher choose…

This fly’s been bugging Andy and me for four or five days. We finally named him/her/it Pestopher “Pest” Flye. In the spirit of brotherhood, the coming season, or something silly, Andy and I decided to let Pest choose the best photo of the two together.

Maybe that wasn’t the best idea. LOL!

11Nov20: Dougy was a bird watcher…

Facebook brings up posts from the past, and this one recently brought a smile to my lips. It’s the late Dougy doing what he most liked to do, watching birds in the fir tree in the backyard! He got his kitty on while doing this and chirped and attacked the screens. He was so intensely interested in the birds, I could barely get his attention.

10Nov20: Sleepy boy!

It’s happening…

…I believe Andy’s about to…

…take his 15th nap today!

Just the same, my family agrees that cats make life better!

09Nov20: Monday, Andy goes to work…

Monday’s just another workday for Andy, and he’s hard at it!

Of course, after hard work, kitty takes his siesta!
