Halloween is the one day of the year we make sure Diego-san is far out of sight as possible...

A Puzzler

I told Theo this is the first day of the rest of his life. He wanted to know how I knew that.

Deep Sleep

We got our first snow. Diego-san went into such a deep hibernation he didn't notice Theo was sitting next to him all afternoon.

Sleeping Arrangment

There appears to be just enough room for the third boy. I'm not sure that arrangement would be satisfactory to at least one of these boyz...

Two's a Crowd

We took a selfie together. Diego-san said he wants to learn how to photoshop.

Thompson's Great Adventure

Thompson survived his latest visit to the vet. He started howling the moment I put him in his carrier and didn't stop until the moment we got back home. In between, I brought him in the lobby and as he howled other pet owners looked at us and a couple started laughing at the increased volume of his discontent. Unfortunately I brought him in on the wrong day- the appointment was actually for next Sunday not this past Sunday. Thankfully they were able to get him in, get his nails clipped and do the blood test that was due.

His paw wasn't infected at all where the nail was growing into the pad, and it doesn't seem to be sore. I'm glad Thompson doesn't seem to hold any of this against me- he was his purring sleepy self the moment we got back home and he got his treat...

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.
