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 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! 

 

 

 

 

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?!

IMG_20190909_014126

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

IMG_20190909_014342

Yeah, you, kitty boy. You!

IMG_20190909_014504

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!

Post 2191: “Who’s my kitty?”

IMG_20190905_120333

Andy stops by and perches on the recliner armrest closer to me. 

IMG_20190905_120248

I ask him “Who’s my kitty?” Does he want “kitty luv” or is he just spying on me in case I’m headed to the kitchen. (You know…will I pass by where >hint! hint!< the kitty treats are?)

IMG_20190905_120603

Who knows? Maybe he just wants to be “scritched”. Andy is, if anything, inscrutable!

IMG_20190905_120125

Oh yeah! Scratch his ears and he leans into the hand to increase the pressure. Andy is sure about one thing: ear “scritching”  is good. Really good!

“Meee-yowwww!” Yes, Andy really, really, really likes this!

Post 2189: surgery day…

The site of the fistula that had to be abandoned after it ruptured healed nicely and the swelling’s down. In the meantime, this array of catheters serves me for dialysis till approximately the first part of December. I get a new dialysis fistula created surgically today, Wednesday September 4th.

This is how I hope the kitty boys are till I get back from surgery in Scottsbluff.

This is more likely what they will be up to! 

Post 2188: Just like old times!

IMG_20190902_132441 (1)

It is possible for the kitty boys to get along like good kitty brothers. 

IMG_20190902_132447 (1)

Right, MacDougall?

IMG_20190902_132450

What meow you, Andrew?

Even the television audio asks the question, “To be honest with you, I haven’t thought about it.” Andy and Dougy exist in the Big Now, where such questions are silly. When the kitty boys get along, I just enjoy the peace and quiet. Doesn’t matter why they are behaving, just that they are!
