Short and sweet. Oscar’s under the weather and we’ve been snuggling all day.
Housework happened today, which always includes vacuuming. None of us are particularly fond of the vacuum, because loud, but The Committee especially disapproves of the noise and general hubbub. They had a meeting as I was finishing the house, and I came around the corner to see this. In other news, poor little Oscar is […]
Oh Friyay, a busy end to a busy week. I had to betray Oscar’s tiny trust this afternoon and take him to get the last of his kitten shots. He was deeply unhappy with me, singing the song of his people on the way there and back. I can’t blame him; we’d been snugging happily […]
Amidst his daily rampages, Oscar likes to help us get ready in the morning. He’ll run back and forth, briefly stopping to pounce on a toy or menace the dog, trying to keep an eye on us both. This morning, he took a break and Brian found this. He had batted a bottle cap into […]
Between work, more work, and a workout, it’s been a very long day for everyone at our house. As such, this post is about to be short. A micro-post, even. Enjoy two slightly fuzzy pictures from this evening. And now we’re all going to bed. Happy Wednesday!
Nutter has always been a bit weird about water. When he was young, he sat in the sink a lot (still does occasionally) and even got in the shower when it was running if I left the door open wide enough. He’s less inclined to get completely soaked now, but he still loves to play […]
Things are progressing well on the snuggles front. Oscar has snugged up with both Nutter and Stan now, and he’s even started hanging out closer to Udo. We predict snugs there too if Udo will let him, but the dog is understandably paranoid. Stan trained him well to beware a kitten sniffing his toe floof […]
Nutter had a penchant for milk tops when he was younger. He liked the hard caps, but his favorite were those soft plastic seals that you pull off under the twisty lid. We found hundreds of them when we were moving to Second Place. He stole them and stashed them under every piece of furniture […]
As he’s grown over the past month, Oscar has displayed a unique trait among my feline housemates past and present. He has the loudest sniff I have ever heard from a cat, let alone a kitten. It’s loudest when he’s looking for food, and it is impressive. Think of the scene from Fellowship of the […]
It’s been a hectic week with quite a bit of stress, but I’m happy to report that Stan seems to be feeling much better this evening. I’ve said for years that Brian has regenerative abilities, and I was right. Behold, the happier Stan after several hours of dad snugs. Meanwhile, Oscar has been in full […]
