Grassed Out

The grass is greener on the other side... of course for Diego-san we don't have grass often enough in our house for him to nibble on.

Some Folks

Some folk stick their noses in the air and look snooty. Theo sticks his nose in the air and looks cuter than ever.

Compliment Received

Thompson was thrilled with my compliment about his bi-colored toes.

Setting the Standard

A better example of lovely sun soaked floof has never been seen...

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


I think Theo is stunned that Diego-san hasn't moved away or whapped him on the top of the noggin.  Either that or he's not aware Diego-san is sitting right behind him.

Doing the Thompson

We call this move "Doing the Thompson." We encourage all kitties to give it a try but know that no kitty can ever Do the Thompson better than the original.

A Big Fan of Laundry Day

Laundry night means an empty laundry basket.  It doesn't stay empty for long however...

Password Please

That thing behind Diego-san?  It's the noisy sucky thing I use to clean up the area after Diego-san's nightly combing session. It really sucks. Diego-san apparently needs to grant me permission to use it however.

I was gonna ask Thompson if he felt this blog unfairly portrayed him as sleeping all the time.  But when I went to ask, he was asleep.

Stop in the Name of...

Diego-san doesn't like anybody or anything (including walls) intruding into his space.

Tree Sitter

Theo has decided he wouldn't make a very good bird due to his apprehension of heights.

Unspoken Request

This might be a passive aggressive plea for another hammock...

Tall Tails

I suspect Theo might have had some cosmetic work done. His tail appears to be twice as long as normal in this pic...

Diego-san clearly feels horrible that I have to get my sorry a** out of bed and get ready for work.

Hotel is Booked

Thompson and Theo are spending their Sunday at the Doubletree.

If One Isn't Up To Something...

Diego-san is a little too sedate. Theo is wondering if Thompson is up to something a little more interesting...

A New Sound

The newest song I'm learning on the guitar has piqued Diego-san's interest.

Finders Keepers

Theo decided that since I messily threw my sweatshirt in the corner rather than in the laundry basket, it now belongs to him.

Color Coordinated

Thompson thinks the red hue of his sunlit ears, his pink toes, my red and blue Minnesota Twins jacket, match well with his tabby fur.

That's Not Theo

I've been cat sitting a couple of old friends this week. Theo's not as spacey looking twin, Marcel, and the ever friendly Bud. I used to cat sit Marcel, Bud, and their sister Marabou a couple of years back but then their humans decided to move to Africa. Marcel and Bud survived the long trip but Marabou ended up in a new home out east. Now the humans have moved back and this was my first chance to cat sit Marcel and Bud again. Bud is a sweety- immediately climbing on my lap and purring away. Marcel has the disadvantage of looking so much like Theo that I assume he'll act the same way. He snarled at me upon my first visit and still seems somewhat leery of me.

When you have a paw as big as a bear's paw, it can be used effectively for many things including resting your weary head.

Are You Ready To Rumble?

In the far corner we have Theo, all 11 pounds of him.  In the center we have Thompson weighing in at 12 pounds. This should be exciting...

Simply Irresistable

His methods are inscrutable!   The proof is irrefutable! He's so completely kissable!  Our lives are indivisible!

The One

There are many reasons Diego-san firmly believes he is the enlightened one of the household. Having his head bathed in sunlight is just one example.

Sunday, August 03, 2014


We always have suspected because of his boundless energy and love of the game 'fetch' that Theo must have some puppy blood in him.  Further verification is that the 'dog days' of summer seem to impact him more than his brothers...

The Fifth Beatle

When he isn't busy chewing on my guitar strings, Diego-san likes to rest on our piano. Music is in his bones.
