Stone Cold Silence

Me: "Hey Diego-san what did the two walls say to each other?"
Diego-san: Silence
Me: "Meet you at the corner!"
Diego-san: Silence (except for the sound of crickets chirping)

Sometimes I think he doesn't appreciate my humor.

A Keeper

The box was meant to be temporary but it has become Theo's go to spot in the house.

Not Really Multiple Choice

Theo is considering his options for getting upstairs to where I am to see what I am doing.  It's very likely he's going to choose the hurdle option.

Diego-san wants everyone to know that being cool all day, every day, may look like hard work, but for him it just comes naturally.

Catcher in the Rye

I went to see the documentary 'Salinger' the other day. Like many males, J.D. Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye,' really resonated with me when I was growing up.  It confirmed my desire to become a writer. Now all these years later I get this vision of myself living up to the title of the book, but rather than children being saved maybe I should make an effort to prevent stray kitties from ever being hurt the way Thompson was injured...

Theo's Guide to a Successful Life

Play and sleep hard (although not too long on the latter), and eat hearty.

Maybe Not

I have a whole list of chores I'm hoping to get done this weekend.  This was Diego-san's response when I asked for a little help.

Well This is New

Thompson is wondering when he started growing feet out of the side of his head.

Where's Theo?

I had not seen Theo for a while and that's very unusual.  I started searching around but should have known right away where he was.  There was a new empty box in the kitchen that he figured was put there for his benefit.

Same Spot, Different Sofa Cover

I bought a new cover for my sofa.  Didn't phase Thompson one bit, he immediately resumed his claim on one of his favorite spots in the house.

Stupid Superstitions

The superstition behind Friday the 13th means even less when you are a black cat.  Diego-san knows life isn't about luck, good or bad, it's about playing the cards you been dealt to the best of your ability.

Shared Outlook

Theo and I live our lives in a constant state of stunned disbelief.

Back to Work

I took a week off last week.  I think my constant presence disrupted the boyz's plans...

Vampire Tendencies

Theo was planning on sitting on my lap until he got one whiff of the garlic breath I had from the garlicy stir fry I made for dinner.

Little Brother Warning...

Diego-san isn't quite sure why his concern radar is lighting up but it might have something to do with sensing a pest behind him...

A Boy Who Likes the Warmth

As he spent the day watching the sun travel across the sky, Thompson became concerned because the sun appeared to be a little bit lower in the sky than yesterday. This can only mean one thing... winter is coming. Brrrrr.

Productive Sleep

Theo thinks that if he is going to sleep he might as well be useful as well. So here he's holding up the wall as he snoozes.
