Post 2155: Uh oh! Bugged again!


Uh oh! I’m not waiting for Dougy to catch this one!


Dougy will be disappointed.


p.s. It and the paper towel used to “snuff” it are safely sealed in a plastic sandwich bag.


Post 2154: Andy’s being extra social today…


Andy stopped by for a social call today…


…so I extended my “paw”.


We had a pleasant time!

Post 2153: “All clear!”


Dougy’s on patrol. Are there bugs around the table lamp?


Nope! All clear! Dougy goes off to check the rest of his patrol area. 

Post 2152: Andy’s busy day…

Here, in exclusive low light photos is Andy and Dougy sorting out who gets to stay on the kitty lounger they both claim. Andy’s on the lounger. Dougy got bopped on the head and he ran into the guest bedroom. Andy gloated about winning this round in “The Terribly Serious, Mean-Spirited War For Control Of The Kitty Lounger Both Brothers Want”. Whew! This is how Andy topped being a naughty kitty by hiding for almost four hours to avoid his medicine. Bad, bad kitty! I had a long, serious talk with him, balancing his little butt on my knee and holding him up, supporting him under his little arms. I forced him to look straight into my eyes, in violation of kitty rules of etiquette. I WAS MAD!

Andy felt bad. My talk apparently penetrated his little head because he gave me exclusive attention most of the morning. He was the most playful he’s been in a long time. We had fun wand toy playtime that lasted nearly an hour!


He drew the line at brushing, so we settled for “scritching”. Yeah, it’s hard to stay mad at such a sweet kitty boy!

Post 2151: I’m better today…


The kitty boys were concerned about why I spent the day Monday in bed. They came around as a team, meowing, patting me till I woke and sat up. This they did several times during the day. Apparently, the chicken I ate Sunday was tainted. Something, at least, knocked me out for a day! I’ll spare you details.


Nice to know the kitty boys were concerned. (“Who will open the cans? Who will open the cans!?”) 


Of course, without me around, who’d “scritch” the kitty boys? No wonder they were concerned! 

p.s. I feel much better today, if a bit weak.


Post 2150: one stop “scritching” place…


Dougy stops by with some expectations. I know (he does an annoying whiney thing…) that he wants some heavy “scritching”! Hey! That’s what I live for, eh, Dougley?

“Thy wish is my command, Mr. Cat!” I give Dougy his wish.


Andy sees this “scritchfest” going on and gives me the “Sad Kitty Eyes That Rip Your Heart From Your Chest And Make You Wish You Were Never Born You Are Such A Terrible Person” look. Well, no way to ignore that, eh?! 

Andy’s front paws flex in anticipation of what’s next: Aw, yes! The eye thing still works!

Post 2149: too hot…

It’s one of those days. Too hot to run around, but not too hot to get a good head rub. Dougy is happy to get the head rub!

Post 2148: Dougy needs a touch up…



Dougy feels a bit ruffled this morning. Must be the humidity!


A little brushing feels good… 


…and Dougy feels more put together afterwards.


Post 2146: doubting Thomas…

It’s been a day since the bug was sqaushed, but Dougy still thinks there is a bug to be found on the light stand. He is a doubting Thomas!

Post 2145: the bug is dead…


“Dougy! Come here and see the bug!”

Dougy came running. The bug…is dead! (The other Doug decided to deal with it since Dougy only batted it around and it got away mostly unscathed.)


Hope springs eternal in cats, too! Dougy isn’t ready to accept the fact that the bug no longer is around to play with.  Really, it’s up on the wall somewhere!
