Voices

I was shopping for a birthday present for my niece at Target yesterday. I was in the Barbie aisle when a woman walked behind me. Just as she passed by I heard a "meow" sound. I thought she might be carrying a child who was imitating a cat but when I glanced over my shoulder I noticed she was alone. I was trying to figure out what was going on and it kinda dawned on me that the sound of the cat sorta sounded like Theo's peep so maybe I just imagined the whole thing. I guess it's time for me to stop sipping on the cooking sherry.

Bad Reputation

When I got home last night there was a cop car in front of my house with its lights flashing. My immediate thought was, "I wonder what Diego-san did now." That probably wasn't very fair to my most mischievous boy. Although he's broken just about every house rule, I don't think he's actually ever broken a human law.

Offended

I was rambling on and on about something and eventually used the term "holy cats." Thompson who had been ignoring my ramblings glared at me when I said that. I think I offended him. It was like I took somebody's name in vain.

Cleaning Etiquette

video

Among other things, this epic video clearly shows that sometimes a fella just doesn't want another fella cleaning certain parts of the body.

Sorry T

I accidentally stepped on Thompson's tail yesterday. He knows who to turn to for a little comfort.

Another Day

It's August 25 and as Thompson is so effectively demonstrating, it's just another day.

Shared Interests

Over the years the boyz have gotten to hear all about my exploits on the softball field. Today Diego-san showed me he's been listening more carefully than I thought he was. We actually sort of played a game of catch. He rolled one of my softballs to me using his back legs to kick the ball my direction. I rolled it back to him and he stayed interested in this new activity for quite a while. His coordination is pretty impressive. Now I just have to teach him how to swing a bat.

A Breather

On occasion, Theo does actually take a breather before he goes and checks out what the other boyz (or I) are up to.

Home

video

I thought I would try to get video of how the boyz greet me when I get home from work. Typically Diego-san and Thompson see me and then go over to the scratching posts for some catchup scratching. I read in a magazine where this behavior means they are happy to see me. Theo is a little more obvious- he licks my hands as I try to sort through the mail.

Glamour Shot

Thompson is an expert at knowing what to do with splotches of sun.

Our Fonz

Often, Diego-san just can't quite believe that his housemates can't be as cool as him.

An Impossible Task

Thompson may try to hide it but it's impossible. He can't hide just how darn cute he is.

Mad Men Season 3

Theo seemed stunned when I confessed the TV character I relate most closely to is Mad Men's Don Draper.

Recuperating

I'm sore from yesterday's all day softball tournament. The boyz are just tired from hearing me whine about how sore I am from playing in an all day softball tournament.

Mr. Pointy

Thompson always earns his keep around the house. Here he watches over my most valuable possession: my Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD collection.

Inventory

video

Not that I don't trust the boyz but every once in awhile I do find myself doing an informal roll call/inventory of where everyone is at. I've learned that if I don't hear from Diego or Theo in particular that one of them might very well be up to something I may not entirely approve of. So here is a video of me taking stock/inventory/an informal roll call of where everyone was at...

Happy Birthday Diego-san

D'oh! I forgot that today is Diego-san's seventh designated birthday. I'll have to hug him and give him some Temptations when I get home...

Ssshhh

Cat sleeping zone.

Historic Moment

I bought this bunk bed online years back thinking it would be a great option for two of the trio to use. Unfortunately it has been a complete dud as a gift. Thompson and Diego-san don't fit too well in the bottom section and Thompson is the only one that seems to like to sleep on the top. So when I found Theo and Thompson using the bunk bed the other day I had to photograph the historic moment.

He's a Lover Not a Fighter

After one is done bunny kickin' his toy catnip mousie, it's always nice to snuggle with it.

Roll Call Dinner Bell

The dinner routine includes this: right before I put the boyz's dishes
down, I say, "Here you go guyzos!" Last night I changed things up and said, "Here you go buccos!" Theo literally turned around in a circle as if he was looking who exactly these buccos were that were getting his food.

A Bird in the Hand is Worth...

The boyz have discovered that bird watching is an activity that is more fun when done in pairs...

Pastime

It's Wednesday. Let's see what's on the schedule. Hmmm. A day in the sun.

Yo, Over Here

Theo has learned that I'm not paying attention to him when I'm doing stuff on my iPhone. He's good at giving me a head butt or licking my hands when he wants me to pay more attention to him.

The Flop

video

This is one of Diego-san's classic moves: "the flop." It is literally impossible not to rub his belly when he does this move....

Shared Duties

Saturday is laundry day for me. For Thompson it's clean your feet day.
