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!

Post 2144: Dougy restores order…

Dougy notices Andy spends a lot of time on the cat lounger Dougy claims as his own. No good! No good!

Well, what you gonna do about it, big boy?

Dougy broods a little, then…

…he restores order! (This ending is kind of predictable, eh?!)

Post 2143: day of rest…

The kitty boys insist that today be a day of rest. Being adorable takes lots of effort!

Post 2142: enough’s enough…

As much as the kitty boys like a good “scritch” – this is Dougy – there is…

…when enough’s enough!

Now Dougy has to unruffle his coat! 

Post 2139: teddy bear cut…

IMG_20190709_155035

The standard cut the kitty boys’ groomer gives them is the teddy bear cut. Looking at Dougy this morning, I thought, “Yeah! Now he looks like one!” Ha!

The kitty boys have a bit over a month to go before they get their next day at the spa. So far, they haven’t developed mats. I hope that continues.

Post 2137: I learn a smart television trick…

When Dolly recommended a Russian series, little did I realize transferring the YouTube video to my smart television was as simple as tapping a little television icon on the YouTube video tagline and switching the television from a HDMI feed to one for YouTube. (Well, it is more simple than it sounds! Really!). That made watching the series easier and on a larger screen than my laptop. Just as interesting, for the kitty boys, I did this little trick with kitty videos. Andy swatted away at the television screen images faster than you can say “Andy”!

Though Dougy was interested in the videos, he also respected Andy’s territorial claim to the television stand. He watched from his ottoman. The kitty boys asked me to tell their Auntie Dolly “благодарю вас”, though it sounded more like “Meow!” to me. This new development amuses them!

Post 2135: Dougy’s bug…

Dougy’s bug manages to survive his swats. I’ve witnessed three direct hits so far, and all that comes of it is the bug falls behind the light stand, safe from my kitty boy. Will Dougy catch it? Time will tell.

Post 2134: More changes..?

There seems to be a shift in preferences going on. This is Dougy where I expect Andy to be…!


And Andy owns the magazines-to-read pile! (I really need to work on that pile because they keep coming in the mail, eh?!)

Post 2133: bugged Dougy…

…that held his attention even after it flew off. (Dougy missed that!)

IMG_20190703_021001

But fly off it did, and Dougy finally got it: The bug’s not here any longer!

Andy and Dougy are struck by the irony that each year Americans blow up hundreds of millions of dollars worth of fireworks made in the People’s Republic of China to celebrate the birth of freedom in America. Silly people! So, enjoy your fireworks on this, the 4th of July holiday!
