Sitting This One Out

When I'm away, some of the boyz play. But probably not Thompson. He prefers to watch.

What's That Sound?

One can sure hear a lot of strange noises in the house when the food guy isn't around noising things up with his constant yammering.

Alone Again... Naturally

I'm off on another mini road trip. The boyz are looking into impeachment proceedings.

Painting Update

The kitchen is repainted. Not only did all three boyz decide they didn't want blue fur, but I also didn't see any little nose prints on the walls.

Absorbing the Sun

I like when Diego-san sits in the sun and then comes and sits with me. It's like having my own non-electric heating pad.

Lap Cats

This arrangement meant, of course, that I couldn't get up and do other stuff for the next few hours.

Booda Dome

Bought a new litter box for the boyz. The big advantage is the entryway is a series of steps and the litter is located on the side of the steps. This greatly reduces the amount of litter that gets tracked outside of the box. Thompson took one look at it and looked back at me as if to say, "You expect me to do my business in a space ship?" Alas, I think all three boyz have tried it out with no problems.

Lick and Run

Thompson looks like he's just seen a ghost... actually it was a younger brother who stopped by to lick his forehead.

A Gift

The best thing in the whole wide world? Coming home to this face...

Paint it Blue

I hired a guy to paint my kitchen this week. I'm hoping that by the end of the week I don't end up with three blue cats. I much prefer their current colors.

Up Close and Personal

As much as he wants to punish me for leaving for dog-sitting duties, Diego-san has decided the best approach to prevent similar abandonment in the future is to sit on my lap 24/7.

Theo was so excited I was home for good (this time) that he threw up his dinner twice.

Droopy Ears

Although I'm definitely a cat person, I must admit Torii is a really sweet and enthusiastic boy.

Suitcase Stowaway

Diego-san deployed a different strategy to encourage me not to leave the boyz by themselves. I told him he probably did not want to meet Torii- especially since he thinks Theo is far too energetic.

The Pulse of the House

Looks like the boyz survived the weekend without me... or did they?

Dual Homes

Back to dog (Torii) sitting duties and running back and forth between homes...

Too Tired to Roll Over

So this is how Thompson looked when I left for work yesterday. It's also how he looked when I got home from work nine hours later. Looks like he had a very busy day...

The Art of Relaxation

1) Find a splotch of sunshine (preferably away from any tuxedo cats you might be living with)

2) Sit yourself down

3) Take a few deep breaths

4) Spend the morning in your spot (unless any tuxedo cats you might be living with find your spot... then you must move to another spot)

Theo had his annual visit to the vet yesterday morning. He checked out fine other than Dr. Timmerman suggesting he have his teeth cleaned. He didn't much enjoy being stuffed in to the carrier and the short car ride over but he was a purring little rub against anything that moved type of guy once he was in the examining room.

Thompson's Fitness Advice

As one gets older, it's extra important to do some stretching exercises to maintain one's flexibility.

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Whack a Brother

Some like the game 'whack a mole.' Thompson prefers to play 'whack a Theo.'

Dilate This

The boyz are having a contest on whose pupils can become the smallest.

Our Math Major

Here we see Thompson practicing his geometric pose... lining up the white on his nose with the white on his chest and front leg. This proves that he knows far more about geometry than I learned in school.

MRI Sympathizer

A while back I had an MRI done and being the whining complainer I can be, I came home with all sorts of opinions about how the experience related to my claustrophobia. I guess Theo took the whining to heart and tried to simulate what the MRI experience was like.

Handsome Hog

If every house is allocated a finite amount of handsomeness, some of us are in trouble since Diego-san uses up far more than his allocation.

Sneaky Pete

I think Theo's trying to hide the fact that he's sticking out his tongue at Diego-san.
