Dougy has left the room!
Dougy has left the room!
Dougy’s enjoying a light nap in the dining room cat tree when his kitty boy sense tingles…. (It isn’t just Spiderman!) Something’s afoot. Yeah, kitty footsies!
Distracted momentarily by his contribution to poor housekeeping, Dougy slowly realizes…
…there’s sure a lot of cat hair on the carpet! And, oh yes! Andy’s eating kitty treats!
Dougy must have eaten before he took his nap, though, because he doesn’t go to his treat station for his share. Of course, Andy checks it out after Dougy…
…returns to the cat tree to continue his nap. He eats what he can, then takes off for his nap.
For the benefit of people who can’t imagine how I live in such a hairy mess, let me explain: I’ve put off fixing a rattle in the vacuum, supposing it was beyond my ability to fix.
That is to say, as a guy, I procrastinated, then finally just ripped the sucker apart, fiddled with some things I can’t name, put it all back together in – I hope! – the right order, and the dang thing works again!
The carpet looks a lot better, with nothing but cat “oopsie” stains to give a hint how much I need to try that steam rug cleaner out. Yeah. No rest for the wicked.
Today is one of those lazy, crazy days where we settle back into our favorite places and purr!
That isn’t to say we aren’t vigilant in case the human’s looking for us to give us our medicine…!
But mostly, we just humm along. It’s going to be an easy, breezy day!
Purr! Purr! Purr!
Happy Purrsday! May you have a purrfectly pleasant and nonproductive day doing as little as possible!
It is a very relaxed Caturday. Dougy’s conked out on the ottoman, and Andy stopped by to take over the footrest of the recliner. I get to have part of the recliner only because I’m willing to sit cockeyed on the darn thing. Cats rule, you know!
Andy gives me the eye. He wants me to scootch over!
Time to clean up, of course.
> lick! lick! lick! <
Whew! Now we are very sleepy.
Andy conks out. Dougy hasn’t moved a muscle the whole time.
My head nods, too. Soon I’ll join the kitty boys in kitty dreamland!
This is what Caturday should be all about!
Dougy gets whiny when he wants something, and it works! After kitty food time – which both kitty boys really, really, really enjoyed! – Dougy wanted more. He wanted to play wand toy
Whiny sounds came from the ottoman….
Maybe I should pay attention!
Dougy gets into the fun of it!
Andy is interested, sort of. “What’s that Dougy doing now?”
Dougy poses nicely for a B&W portrait.
“He thinks he’s a runway model or something!” an incredulous Andy opines.
As if 16-18 hours of sleep a day aren’t tiring enough, Andy and Dougy look forward to Caturday because it is a day of doing little!
Not that there was any doubt, but Andy and Dougy enjoyed their birthday albacore treat! Of course, the celebration didn’t go without a hiccup: I wasn’t paying close attention to the time, and was late for my dialysis. That meant the boys were home alone a wee bit longer than normal. They noticed it was past “feed the kitties time”, and responded to the tragic moment in typical fashion:
For those who don’t live in the USA or have familiarity with American cities, Altoona is in Pennsylvania. Charlie the Tuna is a cartoon fish who tries to get into the can of the company that runs the commercials, but is thwarted because he tries to demonstrate he has good taste, but they are looking for tunas that taste good…
Andy got to play Neko toy without Dougy hogging the toy today. The way it usually goes is Andy has to wait till Dougy’s tired of the play, then hope I’m not so he can get a little play in, too.
He was magnificent! Hopping on chairs, jumping in air, catching and mauling the toy like a proper little tiger!
Dougy finally stopped by, but Andy was so wound up he did the only proper thing: He turned his hunting play on his brother. Poor Dougy! He got wrestled to the ground and given a proper thrashing! He didn’t know what was coming, let me tell you. Andy let him up then and chased him into the guest bedroom.
Marc-Andre of https://katzenworld.co.uk/ posted a comment on this post, I think, that I answered and accidentally deleted instead of posting. (Thanks, WordPress for making that easy to do!) The gist of it was something about his cats and fur flying because of the bad influence of my cats. I know that isn’t anything near what he wrote, that I thought his comment was playful and fun, that I’m pissed I blew it out of the water by accident, and, if he can recall his comment and resend it to me, I will try to recreate my first response, which had something to do with fur flying across the Atlantic. Gad! In the meantime, if you haven’t checked out Marc-Andre’s fun blog, please do. I think it is one of the more entertaining cat blogs on the blogosphere!
Many times during the day the boys slip off to snooze or have kitty time to themselves. Here are a couple of Andy and Dougy’s favorite places.
Here’s Andy in the bathroom sleeping on dirty clothes I didn’t put in the dirty clothes hamper yet. Maybe I should train him to help me do that! LOL!
I’ve told you before how Dougy ruins most photos by closing his eyes just before the flash goes off. He’s pretty cagey that way! Unfortunately, though, that means you see far fewer photos of Dougy than you do of his brother, Andy.
Here’s a selection of today’s Dougy photos. I think I caught him with his eyes kind of open in one!

This blog is all about roaming the Bicol Region, Philippines wisely on a budget. We'll talk about what Bicol has to offer when it comes to great hotel deals, good food and where to go on your vacation. So, I hope this blog site will be helpful to those of you on the look out for great deals while you have fun in Bicol. After all, the wisest of us believe that the concept of toil is just a myth, and life should be a never-ending vacation.
