Holding out Hope

Theo is trying to determine if sunlight has any taste and smell. It would be an endless source of treats if it does...

Diego-san's Tip of the Day

One way of avoiding having to wear sunglasses is dipping your eyes below the sunbeam.

Not a Happy Camper

I'm going to have to bring Thompson into the vet to get his claws clipped. One of them is growing into the pad on his foot and I can't get at it without him being very unhappy with me. He's not going to like the alternative one bit...

The Look

It's hard to turn a face like that down... Yes, Diego-san you can have anything you want...

Best Place to Rest His Weary Noggin

I know Thompson has not been feeling well for a long time. But he still enjoys time with his lifelong buddy.

Fuzz Boy

He's got fuzz in his whiskers. That's just the way he rolls.

Every Moment

Sigh, sitting softly in the sun. Every moment should be like this.

Doin the Thompson

This is called 'doin the Thompson.' My friend Amy can do a very good impersonation of it.

Lucky Day

Friday the 13th? Pffffpt. Thompson feels lucky to have spent his life with his black cat brother who he adores.

Deer in the Headlights

There's the phrase "deer in the headlights." Hopefully Theo will never face a situation where he's looking into headlights so we'll call this look "Theo in the window light."

Cat Talk

Whenever I come home and only two of the boyz greet me I always ask the two of them, "Where's the third boy?  Did you eat him?" And then we all have a good chuckle...

Weathered Cat

I think someone's already hunkered down for a long winter even though it's supposed to be unseasonably warm later this week.

Ready, Set...

He's rarin to do something. You can almost see the gears in his brain trying to figure out what...

Too Predictable by Half

He looks like he's resting but he's really waiting for me to go downstairs and watch TV. When I do this, the two of us will end up taking a nap together.

Cuddle Bear

Diego-san realizes it probably isn't very manly to allow me to call him my cuddle bear, but since it usually leads to some cuddling time, he is willing to live with it.

RIP Mr. Petty

Theo agrees with me that the world is a profoundly sadder place without Tom Petty.

Ghost and Goblin Month

I said to Theo, "Here comes October!" He didn't understand what it meant but it sounded scary enough.

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Marked Man

Diego-san isn't so much interested in what I'm doing, he's more interested in rubbing his face against me so I smell more like him. And according to Diego-san, everyone would be better off if they smelled more like him.

Look of Disapproval

A couple of weeks ago Diego-san advised everyone chill. Theo didn't heed his advice. This is Diego-san's response.

Camouflage Boy

Can you find Thompson in this picture? He's trying to be a chameleon.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017


Theo wishes the tunnel walls would magically become soundproof during guitar practice.

It's kind of Theo to lean to the right enough to allow me to watch the movie...

Brotherly Duty

Theo's making sure no one disturbs Thompson's nap besides himself.

Diego-san and Thompson are doing their best imitation of the cats on the pillow.

Topsy Turvy Day

It was one of those days for Diego-san where everything seemed upside down.

Wrong Side Pooper

The boyz have one covered litter box that is split into two parts. The left side is a series of steps down into the right side where the litter resides. A couple of times last week I found one of the boyz had done #2 on the left side leaving his work on the steps out. The first time it happened I asked each boy which one of them was the "wrong side pooper?" None of them volunteered any info. The second time it happened I knew it was Thompson who used the litter box.

I'm hoping it's just a case of him thinking the litter in the box needed cleaning and not wanting to use that side.  I also know litter box problems can often be about other health related issues so I'll be watching him even more closely than I have been. Poor guy, as if being branded a wrong side pooper wasn't bad enough...

True Colors

Regular readers of our blog might have thought Diego-san is a black cat. When he sits in sunlight however, his true colors come out. Diego-san is really a red head...

My Lil Buddy

One of the things I love most about Theo is he always looks at me with a look of such high expectations and I can almost guarantee most times I fall far short. And yet still he remains my little buddy.

Back End

Not sure Thompson is all too comfortable with this arrangement, but it clearly doesn't bother him enough to get up and move...

No Chore for Diego-san

Diego-san's household chore is to catch every bug that gets in the house. He got that responsibility because he used to be an expert. Now it's hit or miss whether or not he even chooses to participate. Yesterday there was a big fly buzzing around the room. I pointed this out to Diego-san. This was the look I got. He may not get his allowance this week.

Spider Sense

Theo can't shake the feeling that someone is glaring at him.

Drum Boy

Whenever I see Diego-san sitting like this, I'm tempted to go over and pat him on both sides in a rhythmic fashion. He makes an excellent drum. This however, does not amuse him.

Brotherly Love

Theo's birthday gift for Thompson was a wet slurpy kiss on the top of the head. What a nice brother.

Friday, September 08, 2017

Working the Bag

The impressive thing to me is Theo has learned how to crawl inside a bag without tipping it over. Good job lil buddy...

Wednesday, September 06, 2017


Looks like they have something serious to share with me.

Labor Day

Today is the day we honor all the hard workers in the United States. Theo pays tribute by taking a rare nap.
