Nutterbutter has become quite the contrarian as he’s aged. Lately, he likes to pretend he wants snugs and then flop down on the console between us. I get the feeling he thinks it inconveniences us and that makes him happy. When he was doing it this morning, he fell asleep with his face in the […]Read More "CPotD #201: Face Holder"
Nutterbutter has been extra snuggy lately, which means I get treated to more quality faceplant snugs. Nobody faceplants quite like Nutterbutter. He’s had a gift for that mode of sleeping since he was a kitten. I’m not sure if it’s genetics or his barn cat roots, but he’s definitely a champion.Read More "CPotD #199: Faceplant"
Brian went around the house taking pictures the other day. He got portraits of all the beasts, including an excellent shot of Stanley looking smug on his mailing envelopes. If you ask Stanley what is best in life, those envelopes would probably be in his top three picks.Read More "CPotD #197: Awww Yisss"
Unlike Oscar, Nutterbutter is a little more selective about where he’ll sleep. He’s into hidden forts these days, but he’ll occasionally opt for a more sunny spot. Brian got this nice shot of him enjoying the afternoon light on the back of the couch. He’s a rumpled old contrarian, but he’s still a lovebug and […]Read More "CPotD #195: Nap King"
Oscar will use almost anything for a pillow, but he prefers our body parts. He doesn’t care which body parts, either. I’ve tested it and he absolutely will go to sleep on your hand if you leave it under his chin for more than 30 seconds. What a little snugadon.Read More "CPotD #194: Impromptu Pillow"
Nutterbutter doesn’t always want to snuggle, but when he does, he doesn’t care if you do too. He’s coming over and you will hold him one way or another. He’s even gotten cuter with age, so he’s a hard floof to resist.Read More "CPotD #193: Pushy"
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"
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"
