What Andy doesn’t know is…

…you can’t block out news programing captions lying down!

See? You’ve done it before.

23Jun20: kitty on call…

Andy relaxes while blocking television closed captions and the remote signals. All that floof mutes the sound, too! What a prime kitty roost! Momma Cat would be proud.

Of course, he’s always alert for a spider on the wall since miller season seems to be slowing down.

22Jun20: the hunt’s on again…

Dougy and Andy have a miller in sight. This will be brutal!

Dougy has a try…

…and Andy gets the bug.

 

 

 

20Jun20: Red alert!

The kitty brothers rest at their posts when…

…Dougy’s “horns” pop up! Andy sees what Dougy sees, and the hunt is on!

Dougy follows the miller, hoping it will land soon, which…

…it does, following its instinct to go to the light. Andy’s already there, and eventually catches the little bugger. You have to take my word on that because that action happens when I clear off that little hair fluttering at the bottom of the second video. Of course! Andy’s moment of glory and I miss it!

 

19Jun20: endless millers…

Who worries about the state of the world when there are millers bugging your kitty impulses? Andy eventually starts the hunt when the miller lands by the end table. RAWR!

18Jun20: more millers to drive us all a wee bit crazy…

Andy’s minding his business when…

…Dougy piques his curiosity: it’s another miller, and Dougy’s on the hunt! The quick move to the end table from the television still isn’t fast enough to give Andy a role in this hunt, but he watches Dougy on the chance the miller will flush out and fly by his murderous paws!

He watches intently…

…then thinks he sees the miller fly off. Dougy’s still sure it’s hiding among clutter on the floor. This hunt continues because the miller outwitted the kitty boys today!

 

 

 

17June20: a test…

Andy keeps blocking the captions on foreign movies. Sunday night, I shooed him away from his perch in front of the television at least seven times. Later, I felt ashamed and hoped he doesn’t skip the spot permanently. I turned the television on to test if he’d come back.¬†

Yes!¬†Later, he was more than happy to block closed captioned programming, which is less irritating since I usually hear it well enough to follow the program. When the program isn’t in English, though, kitty must go!

16Jun20: Dougy stops by for important kitty business…

Dougy stopped by for important kitty business…

20200614_155023

…which can only mean…

…it’s time for a kitty bath! He needs to be tidy for his next play time with brother Andy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15Jun20: a nice morning…

Andy anticipates a kitty visit…

20200614_080301

… under the Scottish ancestors’ gaze.

20200614_080127

“Hi, brother!” Dougy scratches out an invitation to Andy to do that crazy cat thing where they chase each other through the apartment because, well, “cat”!

That was fun, then Andy stops by the end table. “You know the routine by now, Doug (the human).”

“That’s it! That’s the spot!” >Purr! Purr!Purr!<

20200614_091413

Of course, a nap tops it off!
