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"
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"
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"
Sometimes Oscar likes to flex his influence by proving how completely smitten I am. He doesn’t snuggle on the footrest very often, so he knows I won’t move when he does. I was trapped like this for two hours. Look at that angelic face. How could I possibly make him get up before he’s ready?Read More "CPotD #178: Trapped"
Brian went in to get a closeup action shot of Oscar rolling cutely in a pile of Udo’s brushed hair. Oscar noticed. I love the cocked ear and indignant squint. This is the same face he gives the zebra mouse toy before he murders it. How dare we, indeed.Read More "CPotD #177: How Dare You"
We often use parchment paper in our baking projects. Stanley and Oscar approve of this because they’re big fans of paper. Well, destroying paper. Oscar will wear himself completely out in the process. This particular scrap ended up in many pieces, but it was a multi-nap endeavor.Read More "CPotD #176: Tuckered"
Oscar is unusually limber, even for a cat. He’s contorted into so many weird shapes it’s hard to remember them all, let alone photograph them. We’re pretty happy with this shot, though. He had been rampaging with his milk top in a little pile of dog hair after I had brushed Udo. If Oscar were […]Read More "CPotD #174: Silly Putty"
