Udo has the most boopable snoot I’ve ever seen on a dog and now I have photographic proof. Brian took this wondrous shot on bath day. Look at that face! He’s the sweetest, fuzziest, boopiest dog ever.Read More "CPotD #192: So Boopable"
Oscar tends to sleep pretty hard, especially when he’s snugging. For some reason this often entails a modified faceplant, as shown below. I’ve seen cats sleep on their faces with their foreheads flat against the surface (Nutterbutter does that), but I’ve never seen one sleep on his nose until Oscar. He is… unique.Read More "CPotD #191: Zonked"
Udo is not a fan of the biweekly bath experience, but he loves being clean and getting brushed. He also loves going to Brian for comfort while mean old mom brushes his fluffy rear. He couldn’t be any sweeter if he tried.Read More "CPotD #190: Looming Grooming"
Oscar has resumed post-dinner snugs lately, which really helps me with my diet. Having him park cutely on my footrest prevents me from getting up to procure unnecessary snacks. He’s a good cat when he’s not hassling his older brothers or hip-checking the dog. I sure enjoy the snugs.Read More "CPotD #189: Diet Helper"
Oscar is unimpressed with the vacuum cleaner (aka the Hate Machine) and doesn’t mind telling me so with a classic stink eye. I turned around to this face after putting it back in the closet. He’s not afraid of it, but he sure doesn’t appreciate the noise. Then again, neither do I. Maybe we need […]Read More "CPotD #188: Quiet"
I haven’t put away the gear we took out for our comet-viewing expedition last week. That’s okay, because Stanley has taken the opportunity to turn it into his latest table fort. He looks pretty happy with it. Temporary gear wall plus padded envelopes equals satisfied house panther.Read More "CPotD #187: Table Fort"
I had an interview yesterday and was gone for a couple of hours. I returned to a frantic dog and a trio of indifferent cats. Nutterbutter was unimpressed, as usual. He couldn’t be bothered to get up and say hi, but he was looking extra cute. I provided pets before snapping a picture of his […]Read More "CPotD #186: Just Fluffy Things"
Oscar likes to judge us from the counter when we aren’t providing pets in a timely manner. He gets extra judgey when I take pictures instead of providing said pets. He did get pets immediately after the picture because I’m not a monster. You can see how lush his fur has become as he’s matured. […]Read More "CPotD #185: Soft and Judgey"
Strong Independent Kitten graced me with a rare post-dinner snug last night and it made my heart happy. It also made me stay up too late because how could I make him move? In this house, when a cute cat wants to snug, you snug.Read More "CPotD #184: Bonus Snugs"
Nutterbutter likes to snug every morning while we have our coffee. He often performs a maneuver we call a “headgut” (rather than headbutt) and it never fails to melt my heart. Not shown is his front leg hugging my hip. Nutter is contrary and grumpy in his old age, but he’s still pretty dang affectionate.Read More "CPotD #183: Head Gut"
