Busy To Do List

The evening shadows are rolling in. Time to stop napping and do some stretching.

Prankster Victim

I told Theo the weekend was just around the corner. Ha ha. Made him look.

More snow on the way. We appointed Thompson to be the official spokes cat on the matter and he obviously speaks for us all with this effective look.

Prepared to be Groomed

This is Diego-san's 'what are you waiting for, comb me right now' stance.

Take Cover

It's Theo's turn to protect Thompson from any frontal surprise attacks.

Would If I Could

I asked Theo if he could share some of that sun with the rest of us. He indicated he didn't know how.

Make Room for Daddy

This will teach me to get in bed early and stop with that guitar racket.

Friday, April 22, 2011


Last night as I was practicing my guitar, Diego-san decided to hop up onto the clock radio. Eventually he pushed the button that started the CD inside to play. I went over and shut that off but a few minutes later he pushed the button that started the radio playing. I guess he was trying to tell me if I wanted real music in the house, the clock radio was a much better option. Unfortunately for him, I'm not that easily discouraged...

Thompson and Theo are practicing their maximum vertical kittyness.

Spring Cleaning Part 3

Whenever we watch a french movie, Theo makes sure to stick his paw deep in his mouth to get it extra clean. We don't think he's trying to make himself vomit because of some kind of anti-French feelings. Sometimes we just never know why Theo does what he does.

The boyz and I awoke to a coating of snow yesterday morning. Granted April is the second snowiest month historically in Minnesota but still... after going to my first Twins baseball game last Sunday and riding my scooter to work for the first time Tuesday, it just didn't seem fair...

Doing the Thompson

If you ever find yourself laying in this position, you are "doing the Thompson." He has a patent on it.

The Life of a Blogger

This Pearls Before Swine panel accurately sums of the feelings of being a blogger.

Hey Einstein

This is Diego-san's Einstein crazy fur look. The boyz and I wish the greatest living human, Stephanie Jane, a very happy birthday.

Thompson is positively thrilled with the start of a new week.

Papa Razzi

I think my filming Thompson and Theo interrupted some quality brother time, turning some brotherly love into a whap on the head.

Bye Bye

I have a detached garage so as I leave on my way to my car I walk around the side of the house. For the past month or so Theo has perched himself on the cat tree by the side window where he can see me round the corner of the house. He almost tilts over as I pass by the window and wave. It's become one of the favorite parts of my day (that this picture doesn't quite capture).

Clean Slate

Thompson and Diego-san had their annual visit to the vet. Both checked out fine. Diego gained a pound over the past year but the vet said he looks fine, he's just a big boy. Thompson squawked all the way on the ride over and back, letting his displeasure be known quite articutately.

Sun Bath

Diego-san gives a demonstration on the proper way to take a sun bath.

Theo still isn't sure what to make out of my guitar playing.

Backed into a Corner

Diego-san takes it the hardest whenever I leave the boyz alone for any length of time. He's the one who has figured out what the suitcase means. He's also the one who tries to distance himself from me when I get home. His behavior this time around was classic Diego-san... he meowed at me when I walked through the front door... ran to his dinner dish when I put out food, but disappeared the rest of the day... that is until Theo chased him into a corner. From there on, he seemed to forgive me and returned to his normal over affectionate self...

Baseball's Back

Flew down to Atlanta to see our Minnesota Twins play a couple of exhibition baseball games against the Braves at Turner Field. It felt good to be outside in OK weather (it was in the 50's and drizzly ) but it felt even better to feel the beginning of a new baseball season in the air. The boyz survived their abandonment and were pretty peppy when I got back...
