We’ve been under a winter storm warning today and have actually seen a fair amount of snow for our area. Oscar hadn’t seen snow before, so he was entranced by the big flakes falling outside the window. Meanwhile, Udo has seen snow before and is completely thrilled with the state of his yard. He’s done […]
Like most cats, His Royal Highness Stanley the Magnificent, King Wha-TAH-La, Ruler of the Seven Rooms appreciates high places. I turned from putting away dishes this morning to find him surveying his kingdom from the top of the fridge. That’s 20 pounds of regal benevolence, right there. A lesser feline would have knocked off my […]
Udo and I have a routine during the week. We get up, he has breakfast while I have coffee, we see Brian off to work, we do a few chores, and we go for a walk when I take my morning break. After we return, he gets a couple of little rawhides and I get […]
Oscar is a cyclical creature, and much to my delight he’s returned to engaging in dinner snugs lately. Look at those feet! He stayed like that through dinner and the entire movie we were watching. Whatever else he is, you can’t say he’s not a well-rested cat.
Occasionally, Stan likes to jump into the laundry basket and imprison himself while I’m folding clothes. I had almost managed to finish this load when he hopped in to nest upon Brian’s gym shorts.
I just had to say something about Stan occasionally displaying a lack of dignity. His latest pose is something to behold. I’m not sure how this happened, if he hoisted his back foot over Oscar or if Oscar wormed his way underneath while they were bathing, but yeah. This daffy looking snug is the result. […]
The cats missed us while we were at the gym last night and decided to bestow an epic post-dinner snug upon me. While Stan is a regal beast who displays a stunning lack of dignity upon occasion, Oscar just never bothered to develop any. He’s either all affection or all murder. There’s just no room […]
Welcome to the all new (not really) Critter Post of the Day! I’ve enjoyed chronicling Oscar’s first year with us so much I’ve decided to continue the journey and post more of his brothers as well. For today’s inaugural post, here is our oldest, Nutterbutter, assisting me with my workout this morning. He’ll be 14 […]
And just like that, it’s been 365 days. A year ago, we brought home a tiny ball of fuzz and hiss who hid behind the dryer and under the recliner while he got his bearings. He took to us pretty quickly, though.
