I asked Thompson to give me his most dignified pose. This is what he came up with. Note the casual paw placement.

Little Privacy Please

I'm not sure Theo wants this picture on the internet but I think it shows off his cute red paw.

Non Hostile Takeover

I think Theo has declared himself the king of our top floor.  It's his new favorite hangout, his go to spot when he's not running around. Last Sunday was the muggiest day of the year (there was a heat advisory for most of the afternoon) and instead of joining Diego-san, Thompson and I in the basement where it was nice and cool, he spent most of the day in the muggy upper level.

Snug or Smug

Seriously, I think there are times someone is a little too comfortable and is being smug about it.

Three for Three

Came home to this sight in the backyard.  I told the boyz each of them could have a bunny.

One of a Kind

For some kitties there is one day a year to celebrate boxes. For Theo, every day is box day.

Roaming the Wild

His whiskers are twitching.  I think he's dreaming of chasing buffaloes.

We're Getting Old

One of the things the vet observed about Diego-san is that he is losing some of his muscle mass.  I have noticed that he is having more difficulty making leaps onto higher furniture. This is the boy that used to be able to get on top of the refrigerator and has always used his leaping ability to get away from a chasing Theo. It might be time to implement calisthenics into his daily routine.

Their Latest Adventure

Diego-san and Thompson had their annual visit to the vet. Neither one of them appreciated the experience. With every vet visit Thompson is getting surlier and surlier with his growling and hissing. Poor Diego-san sounded meek with his timid meowing.

Neither boy passed with flying colors although nothing serious was detected with either. Thompson was prescribed an anti-nausea medication in hopes that will help with his appetite. I mentioned Diego-san has also begun eating less and less and skipping a few meals so they did a blood test. Everything checked out normal. The vet also wanted to do a urine test and we were given two options: empty a litter box and hope Diego-san peed in it or bring him back and have them remove urine with a needle. I'm sure Diego-san would have much preferred the first option but I thought the second option was likely more realistic.

So the following day I brought Diego-san back to the vet. He indeed was a little more vocal on the ride over. We walked up to front desk and I got to say the line I practiced on the way over, "Diego-san would love to have some pee extracted." The urine test came back clean.  No steroids (or signs of anything abnormal).

As I was preparing to give Thompson his first anti-nausea pill, I noticed the box said it was for dogs.  I called the vet's office to make sure this was not a mistake and they confirmed the medication is for cats as well.  I just hope it helps Thompson eat better. I also hope he doesn't start barking.

Paw In

Thompson is testing the sunlight with his paw to make sure it's warm enough for him to move into the sun.

That Time of Year

They only bloom for a short period of time but when they do, I just love my peonies.

Glamour Shot

I told Diego-san that it took 13 years of living with each other but I finally took a photo that does him justice. He is a very handsome boy.

Diego-san thinks it's inconceivable that there could possibly be anything better he could be doing right now.

Edgy Boy

He likes to live life on the edge... the edge of the stairway.

Geometry Boy

You need a protractor to measure all the angles Thompson is creating with this position.

Trick Question

There are actually two correct answers to yesterday's question... Diego-san is watching Theo and also the most recent vomit stain on the carpet.

Theo doesn't usually rest in unusual positions. He leaves that to Diego-san.  But last night he did.  I think it may have been the Zubaz I was wearing.

C is For...

Diego-san is attempting to spell out what he is ("cat" or "cool").

A New Strategy

Theo thought that hiding behind my guitar case might block out the awful guitar practice noise.  You'd have to ask him, but I don't think it worked.
