Post 1897: “Want me to brush you, Dougy?”


The longer their hair gets between haircuts, the prettier the kitty boys get. On the other hand, they require more brushing to deal with loose hair, which leads to mat formation if not dealt with. 


When I ask Dougy if he wants me to brush him, the inevitable answer is “Meow!” He love, love, loves brushing, especially when I “scritch” his chin with the brush. See how he rolls over to make his chin more accessible!?

Andy is less thrilled with brushing, though he tolerates it.


Post 1801: what they do most of the day…



Yeah, once in a while, I poke them to see if they still move!

Post 1778: a much needed rest…

A short time ago, I planned on skipping a day here to catch up on sleep. I didn’t do it, though, and continued to build on my fatigue.

This past weekend, however, my body rebelled and took over: I slept 11 hours Saturday afternoon and night! Sunday was pretty much the same thing, as was Monday.

Beyond doubt, I needed rest, my body determined it was a huge, huge amount, and I just went along. Instead of staying up, when I felt tired, I went to bed, day or night. What a novel approach to fatigue management! Ha!

I hope I’m caught up now. 

Post 1776: because he meowed at me…


Dougy looked over his shoulder and meowed a sad meow. Awww! He wanted me to “scritch” him! So I did, of course. Happy Caturday!

Post 1775: Andy works at it…

Seriously, Andy does a good job cleaning up!

Post 1774: Bugged…!


It’s that time of year. Bugs get inside and the kitty boys have fits trying to get to them. This morning, Dougy spotted a bug on the ceiling. He wants it! MEOW!


Poor kitty! The bug won’t move. It’s still in the same spot on the ceiling. What’s a kitty boy to do?

Post 1773: “No, I meant to do that!”


It started out to be a  photo sequence showing Dougy having fun with the recycled peacock feather “toy”.




“No, I meant to do that!”


[I’m sorry, but I laughed! Poor Dougy! His pride was hurt and he’s sulking now. Poor baby! I’ll try to make him feel better. Who hasn’t rolled off his ottoman? Oh! No one. Hee! Hee!]




Post 1771: catnaps day…

I wasn’t going to post today, then I realized there would be concerns and questions if I didn’t. So, here’s the big skinny: It’s a cool, rainy day here, and the kitty boys and I want to enjoy some catnaps. Just that, nothing more!

Post 1769: brotherly love…

Do the kitty boys get along together? Well enough, but they have their days, too! Surprisingly, they never squabble when it comes to food, but the recliner comes with elaborate rules for use, rules only the kitty boys know.

(Andy is the kitty boy on the left in all photos, a fact I find curious. It seems they almost always end up that way in joint photos.)

Post 1768: looking “hot”…


Andy gets questions about how he manages to always look so, erm, “hot”. Once more, he will share his beauty secrets. Pay attention. It goes by fast!

“There you go. Simple, eh?! You can do it, too!” Andy believes in positive re-enforcement.

“Any further questions?” Andy asks…

“No?! Good~! You pay much better attention than the last ones who asked!”

Andy asks me to send you kitty kisses and “scritches” for your continued interest. Give yourself a treat!
