Super Bowl LII

Our city is hosting this year's Super Bowl. The Vikings' stadium is located in downtown Minneapolis. For those of us who frequent the downtown area, it is making it very difficult (and expensive) to do things. They're saying it's like having Black Friday for one and a half weeks. I would be perfectly happy if we never host another Super Bowl.

Thompson's Theme Song

For he's a sleepy fellow, he's a sleepy fellow, oh, he's a sleepy fellow, that nobody can deny.

All Grown Up

Theo thinks it may be time to learn how to use the big boy's litter box.

My Rock Stars

The boyz were featured in the current edition of Mousebreath Magazine. I hope it doesn't go to their heads.  Good job answering all the questions guyzos.

This is Theo's pre-yawn look.  And now I have an urge to yawn as well.

Snow Day

I had an unscheduled day off. We got 10 inches of snow between 1 p.m. Monday afternoon and 9 p.m. Monday night. I still planned on the white knuckled drive to work Tuesday, but cars got stuck on both ends of my alley making it impossible to get my car out onto the streets. The boyz enjoyed the sun (and hopefully my unexpected company).

Nap Testing and Approval Part 2

Thompson has also decided that green is a mighty fine color to take a nap on.

Knock Knock

Me: Knock knock

Theo: who's there?

Me: Broken pencil

Theo: Broken pencil who?

Me: Oh forget it. There's no point.

Some of you might know I've played the sport curling for over ten years. It's something that Thompson and I kind of have in common because he likes to curl his toes.

The more I'm away from the house the deeper the naps are on my chest when I am around.

Gold Medal Contenders

The boyz continue to perfect their synchronized snoozing. Bring on the Olympics.

Imagine waking from your nap and seeing this when you open your eyes.

Not Amused

I told Theo if he started flapping his ears real fast he might be able to fly...

Unstable Idiot

It's often rather cold in our house as the guy who pays the mortgage tries to scrimp and save every last penny. He also justifies it by reminding anyone who complains there are plenty of available blankets and comforters and that the other three housemates all have fur coats which he does not. The other three housemates just think the guy who pays the mortgage is cheap.

Laundry Duty

It may look like Diego-san is the guardian of dirty laundry, but actually that duty belongs to Theo. Theo loves to nap on piles of my dirty clothes.

Mellow D

I think if he gets any more relaxed he's going to tip over.

I know there are people in this world that don't like cats. But seriously, who alive could not like this boy?

Saturday, January 06, 2018


This is a classic Theo move- sitting on top of his favorite cat tree and staring into space. He doesn't have a large repertoire of moves but the ones he does have in his bag he has certainly mastered.

2017 winner

As the 2017 winner of the "Boy Who Had the Most Pictures" Diego-san got to wear the lion's crown. I don't think he was too amused by the award.

Final 2017 Stats

I finished organizing the pictures I took in 2017. Here are the year end number of photos of each of the boyz:

Diego-san - 662
Thompson - 622
Theo - 478
Combo of at least two: 545

Diego-san wanted to know why his number isn't even higher.

To be fair, I tend to always take more pictures of Diego-san because he's the hardest for me to get a good photo of. Theo's photos almost always are either amusing or capture his personality pretty well. I took a lot of photos of Thompson toward the end of the year when his health was declining.

The Shadow

I often tease Diego-san that he has a little shadow. Here's a picture of that shadow.

What Was That?

Theo just watched the closing credits of 2017. That was one confusing year.
