Dougy is happy in his flamingo tub!
And Andy is pleased to have the PC to himself!
The pun in the headline presumes the pronounciation of GIF is similar to “give”, with a final “f” sound tagged on, so the headline should be understood to >wink! wink!< read “I give you the kitty boys!” Checking up on the accepted pronunciation, though, I learned I was mistaken. Here’s a rabid video on the topic:
Soooo… if you pronounce it correctly, you miss the pun.
“Stop hogging the recliner, bro’!” Andy’s had it!
Dougy’s surprised Andy’s so adamant. There’s plenty of room on the recliner.
Dougy wants nothing to do with it…
Andy says he didn’t ask to play…
Dougy decides he really does want to play! OKAY!
We humans need to feel useful to our kitty masters.
Dougy’s a bit crabby today. That’s his “Endless Pain For All Who Mess With This Tough Kitty Paw of Total Annihilation” pointed directly at me! I brushed him a little too hard, and a nice clump of matted hair pulled out. Oops!
Andy tells his brother “Mrow~meow~mew~mrow!”, which, for those of you who don’t know Cattinese, translates more or less, sometimes if not, and kinda as: “Kill, brother! Kill! They are made of meat, you know!” or, depending on inflection and the humidity, may actually mean: “He didn’t mean to do it, brother! And he controls the treats!”
Either way, Dougy is upset and Andy is trying to calm the waters…or…start a murder frenzy!
Some things are more important than others. Miller time, for example…
…and window time!
,,,quality time with your brother!
…and, finally, a little kitty nap time!
While watching a favorite kitty video, Andy gets an urge to hit the dry kitty food…except Dougy’s watching him!
He really, really, really wants that kitty food, but Dougy looks ornery! Andy can see “The Glance”, and it means a gauntlet to run if he’s to get those yummy pellets of kitty chow.
“Maybe I can sneak out the back way,” Andy thinks. “…but then the human will want to pet me!” Good grief! Andy is in a pickle!
Andy eventually got his kitty on and ran past Dougy. Dougy reached out and got a little pawful of Andy hair, but, man, that kitty food was worth it!
Dougy’s still seeing things.
He just sits there, being Mr. Kreepy Kat!
Then he hops on his ottoman and does this…! I don’t see what he sees.
The kitty boys were enjoying their rest when…
…something caught their attention.
“DEFCON 1*, Andy!” Andy’s already sprinted off to see whatever it is.
Now Dougy is off to the hunt! (That’s his tail just above the top of the recliner arm.) Whatever it is he and Andy suspect is out there has no chance.
[Sorry for the late posting today. The last photo took a long, long time to show up in my e-mail, and I felt it was necessary for the story.]
Andy is easy enough to photograph lately…
…but Dougy’s been hard to get! Yep, he either moves during the shoot or holds his head down, hiding his eyes.
The longer my Persian kitty boys’ hair grows, the more they need brushing. Dougy generally love, love, loves it, and will hop up on his ottoman to be brushed when I pat the ottoman three times.
I usually catch mats early enough that I can pull them apart with my fingers, then brush out the spot to get any loose hair. Sometimes, though, I miss the mat and snag it with my steel-toothed grooming comb. That upsets Dougy, reasonably enough! See his tail after the latest “incident”!
