Theo throws his support behind Tuxedo Tuesday.  Thompson prefers Tabby Tuesday.  Diego-san?  He votes for Tummy Rub Tuesday.

Just Any Old Place Will Do

Knobby knees and bony shins don't matter to Thompson when it comes to finding a place to rest his head.

All Packed Up (Almost) and Nowhere To Go

The contents of the box might be irresistibly cute, but the outside of the box needs a bow or something.

Bonkers for Bongo Ball

Theo is the best bongo ball player in the world.  Or at the very least, the most tired bongo ball player in the world.

King of the World

As much as Diego-san loves the sun, he expects it to move to him and not vice versa.  He has the same expectation of the rest of us as well.

Watching the Water Flow

I bought a new drinking fountain for the boyz since all three of them like drinking directly from the tap.  I thought they'd appreciate filtered flowing water.  So far the only one brave enough to check out the fountain is Diego-san and he's yet to drink the water.  In general he just likes watching water flow. (Sometimes he'll sit on the sink and stare mindlessly at the water flowing from the tap down the drain.  I'll ask him, 'where's that water going?' and he'll look at me as if I've asked the most profound question ever.)  Hopefully the boyz will get brave enough to try the fountain.

Thompson seemed none too impressed when I told him I played by far and away my best softball game of the season.  I guess you had to be there.

Cooling Technique

If you think you've seen this picture before you're wrong... it was taken two nights ago.  It's the pose and the look that are becoming a nightly occurrence.  I think Diego-san likes to air his belly out on warmer evenings.

Theo's Joke

What did the two walls say to each other?

'Meet you at the corner!'

He's a Rainbow

It's fine living with a uni-color and bi-color cat, but Thompson thinks being a many color cat is the way to be.

Our Acrobat

 Diego-san loves to leap up to the window in the basement, I think in part because neither of the other two boyz have the ability to get up there.  The jump is probably about four to five feet up and I have noticed in the past year that Diego is finding it more difficult to make it. He takes much more time in the prep part, making sure that he gets as much momentum upward from a sitting position as he can.
Getting down is even more problematic as he eases himself down the wall, falls toward the TV table and springs from the TV table onto the carpet.  I worry about this part because he could easily injure himself if he were to land wrong.  I'm guessing in a year or so, he won't be able to do this anymore.  It sucks getting old.

Theo's Staying Cool Advice

If you don't have a popsicle to cool you down, your brother's head is a good substitute.

Summer Repeats

I may have used this picture of Thompson before but it's one of my favorite pictures of him.  He looks so suave.

Sunday, July 15, 2012


I asked Diego-san if he'd please move over a little bit so I could get a picture of him in the light.  This was his reaction.

A Philosopher

In his quiet moments Theo contemplates life's big questions like, "how long until the next meal time?"

Friday, July 13, 2012

Superstitious, Nah

Thompson agrees with me that he thinks it's silly that people associate black cats with bad luck.  He thinks his many years with Diego-san have been nothing but lucky.  He doesn't have any comments about bad luck being associated with Friday the 13th however.

The New Judds

Instead of just laying like a lump on the carpet when I'm practicing my guitar, Diego-san decided to join with me in singing.  We're kind of like the Judds only instead of mother and daughter we are father and son (well sort of) and oh, one of us is a cat (probably the better singer in the duo).

A New Friend

Theo's luck eventually ran out yesterday and Diego-san got up and left.  Not one to be deterred Theo found a new friend who seems to be a bit more stationary.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


Theo can't quite believe that he's been sitting next to Diego-san for over 15 minutes and Diego-san hasn't gotten up and left.

All There Was

Well that wasn't much of a weekend.  All anyone did around here was lay around.

All Aboard

With all the furniture in the house one would think that my chest and stomach would not be the most comfortable place to rest.  One would be wrong.

State of Being

Like much of the country, we've been enduring some pretty oppressive heat (and humidity) the past week.  I don't like running the air conditioner but it's been running constantly during the heatwave. Diego-san is good at showing however that being cool truly comes from within.

Simply Irresistable

While some of us have a face that only a mother could love, Thompson has a face that everybody's mother can love.

It's a Scorcher Out There

When I asked Theo, "Hot enough for ya?"  I really didn't mean it to be such a perplexing question for him.

Finer Hiding

Although I liked Grayce's from the Katnip Lounge fireworks safety idea of hiding behind the toilet, Thompson decided he needed somewhere slightly more luxurious.

Tuesday, July 03, 2012


Stress?  The word isn't in Diego-san's vocabulary (at least for this moment).

Monday, July 02, 2012


I explained to Theo that when he hears an unexplainable noise that it might be coming from a logical spot.  In this case the slurping noise was coming from a brother imbibing at the local watering hole.

What the !@#$?

Theo is wondering where that loud slurping noise is coming from.
