24Jul20: on the hunt…

I tossed a few of Andy’s kitty treats in the carrier the other day to divert his attention from his upset at being in the carrier for transport to the veterinarian’s. Today, he climbed in to see if any were left.


I could see him eating a Greenie, so the hunt was a success. Then he climbed on top of the carrier for…

…a cat nap.


Andy will be on a prescription diet to control formation of kidney stones. This is condition is common in older Persians, Though his blood pressure was better than last Winter, it still is elevated. He will continue to be on medication for that condition. Other than those two issues, Andy had excellent test results. One test remains. I get to collect a poop sample for that,,,,

13Jul20: my posse runs on naps…

Andy and Dougy “hang” with me no matter where I go. That gets very tiring!

11Jun20: Andy tolerates no funny business…


Andy is a serious kitty. He doesn’t put up with any funny business.


04Apr20: Caterday at last!


Andy ponders what to do now that Caterday finally is here.

Of course! A perfect activity for Caterday!















25Mar20: a slow start…

Andy plays hard to get.

Oh well. He plays on his stomach, but at least he plays!

Now he’s revved up! RAWR!


Post 2247: it is what it is…

Dougy’s proud of his handsome pelage. What he doesn’t know is he and Andy have an appointment at the groomers on November 6th…! (All the “stuff” on the floor in the lower right photo is cardboard Dougy’s scratched off his and Andy’s kitty lounger. So much for the notion kitties are “clean” animals. They will scoot on the carpet and knock over trash cans, too. I know. I know. I was shocked, too! You do know they butt sniff each other, too, don’t you? LOL!)

Post 2096: mockingbirds hold their own…

Dougy didn’t react to this insult.

Hard to believe Douglas barely touches the top surface of this mockingbird or…

…this. I mean, he really puts his kitty philosophy of “KILL! KILL! KILL!” on these kitty toys, snatching them out of the air and shaking them violently as long as they move, thanks to me.

The only damage on the bottom side is a little loose string or two on this mockingbird and…

…not much of anything I can spot on this one. Has Dougy given up? Is he putting on a kitty show for my benefi, but giving the mockingbirds a break for their sake? I think not! They just seem to be better made than most kitty toys. Andy is more gentle with them -“kill, kill, kill” instead of “KILL! KILL! KILL!” – but he still is pretty rough, just not as rough as Dougy, when it comes to kitty toys.
