Waiting for 2018

Thompson is resting up to whoop it up tonight when the clock strikes midnight. Coincidentally his whooping it up looks an awful lot like his resting.

Piano Cat

Diego-san likes to sit on top of the piano because Theo has a difficult time figuring out how to get up there. Long ago he actually liked walking back and forth on the keyboard improvising a tune as he went along.

Failed Resolution

Theo is reflecting on the disappointment of not meeting his 2017 New Year's resolution to eat a lot more meals. He resolves to do so in 2018.

Thursday, December 28, 2017


We've had a run of days of below zero weather. One of us has had to make his way to work and back home in the frigid air. The others? Not so much.

Resting a Weary Head

It doesn't happen all that often but Thompson sometimes loves using my shoulder and arm as a pillow.  I don't mind one bit...

Saturday, December 23, 2017


This picture sums up their complicated relationship pretty well.

World Peace

I'm finding this more and more common that Diego-san tolerates having Theo next to him. I think a lot of times it's just too much work to get up and move but maybe, just maybe world peace is just around the corner.

Helping Paw

Thompson is offering his paw in case you need help with anything.

Lobbyist Theo

Theo wants clarification on why we have a house rule prohibiting howling at the moon at 3 a.m.  He's a free speech advocate.

Festive Thompson

The curled up candy cane shaped tail is perfect for the holiday season.

Friday, December 15, 2017


Diego-san is having one of those "I refuse to get out of bed" days. Unfortunately for me, he's sleeping on my stomach.

Thursday, December 14, 2017


I told Theo if we put his ears on top of the TV, we might get better reception.

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

No Privacy Needed

Diego-san is glad Thompson feels comfortable, safe, and free to do what he's doing right next to him.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Bah Humbug

I broke the news to Diego-san that there will be no Christmas this year because he's living with the Grinch. He didn't take the news too well...

Monday, December 11, 2017


Thompson and I took a selfie together. It's one of my all time favorite pictures of him...

Ranking Handsomeness

Diego-san is letting me know he thinks he's the most handsome cat in the house. I let him know that he's certainly in the top three.

Friday, December 08, 2017

Dress Down

I told Theo he doesn't need to wear a tuxedo when he's just lounging around with me. We're an informal house. He, like his brothers, ignored the comment as more senseless gibberish from the food guy.

Near and Far

One of my favorite Sesame Street bits involved Grover trying to teach the concept of near and far. First he would run up close to the camera and explain this was "near." Then he'd run away from the camera to a spot and say this was "far." He ran back and forth until he was exhausted and keeled over.  Thompson and Diego-san have a much more sedate way of explaining far and near.

My Arm is His Arm

Diego-san had me pinned down pretty good. Of course I didn't mind other than my arm started hurting after a while...

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

Yellow Alert

His alert level has been upgraded. None of us are sure why.

Monday, December 04, 2017

Leaning Toward the Light

He's 98 percent sure it's not a laser beam but he doesn't want to get too close just in case...

Faulty Cameraman

I was trying out my new iPhone's camera. Let's just say there's work to be done with framing pictures.

Saturday, December 02, 2017

A Box with a Use

I didn't have the heart to tell Theo that the bottom of the box is a scratching pad. Then again maybe he's got an itchy bottom.

Friday, December 01, 2017

Online Boy

This is Diego-san's version of being online... hugging my iPad.

Thompson's Haiku

I like to rest in
colorful spots like this one
think i look good here

Hearing the Beat of His Own Drummer

Theo loves the sound of sunshine. Indeed his ears light up when he's listening to it.

Putting My Guitar Down

Someone doesn't seem too pleased that there is a guitar in my lap and no room for what's really important.

Enjoying the Sun (and Life)

Three weeks ago I thought I was going to lose Thompson. We got a reprieve and every day since has seemed like a blessing.

Sunday, November 26, 2017


Diego-san: Maybe if I close my eyes he'll go away.

Theo: SLURP!

In The Sun

If you wonder what the boyz are doing, it's called basking Thompson and Theo are basking.

Friday, November 24, 2017

My Lil Helper

Theo is trying to help his photographer out by keeping his ears in the frame.

Taco Tuesday

Yesterday was Taco Tuesday. Only one of us in the house celebrates the day. This isn't him...

Mirror Image

What you can't see in this photo is that the camera guy is mimicking Thompson's pose by lying on the carpet, face close to the ground, arm outstretched. It appears Thompson isn't too fond of being mimicked.

Monday, November 20, 2017

Baby Harper

Thompson is winking his approval about his new friend. Unfortunately his new friend is a gift and will be leaving our house shortly...

Close Closeup

If the camera got any closer to Theo, it would take his X-ray.

Shared Visions

To quote the great Bob Dylan: "I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours..."

Thursday, November 16, 2017


I wouldn't describe Theo as a very reflective cat, but he is pretty swell at reflecting the sunlight in a handsome way.

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Group Photo

This is a picture of all three boyz perched on my chest and legs. It's not a very good picture because I could hardly move my arm.

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Thirst Comes Before Pride

Diego-san is an awfully proud cat, but he's not too proud to drink out of this water dish.

Monday, November 13, 2017

Cool Clear Water

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water, cool, water
And way up there He'll hear our prayer
And show us where there's water, cool, clear, water

Thompson Update

Though he's still not feeling 100 percent, Thompson's appetite has picked again and he's been acting more like himself the past few days...
