Sorry Buddy

Diego-San had a rough day. I dropped an empty coffee cup (a metal travel mug) on his head while he was eating lunch. He ran away and hid of course. But all was forgiven come dinner time. He even snuggled with me as I watched evening TV.

When the motor finally runs down, even Theo can be groggy.

Winter Storm Advisory

We have a winter storm advisory over the weekend. Sounds like an awful mixture of rain, freezing rain, and snow. I have a feeling I know where Diego-San will be hunkered down much of the weekend.

Just Like Lightning

This is Theo’s ‘I’m about to bolt off to somewhere” pose.

12 Days Test

Next Christmas Diego-San wants to test which is tastier: a partridge in a pear tree or three French hens.

Seconds Away

Seconds away from a chin scritch. Pleasure is soon to commence.

One Speed

Diego-San operated at one speed in 2019: leisurely. I wouldn’t mind living that speed the rest of my life.

Denver CO

I told Theo I had flown back from the mile high city. He didn’t know what that meant but figured it had something to do with catnip.

Home Again

Got back from Denver after midnight. Diego-San moseyed on downstairs to see who it was. Theo was nowhere in sight. I guess? they are glad I’m home...

New Management

While I’m off gallivanting from Minneapolis to Washington DC to Denver, the boyz are just fine with their new food server.

DC Bound

The suitcase made its final appearance of the year. Usually, Diego-San is the one that lets me know he doesn’t like what happens when the suitcase appears. This time it was Theo who was most vocal about it. I told them both that my preference was to stay at home with them but if they wanted meals to continue to be served, someone had to earn some money...

Dress Rehearsal?

Theo thought he heard a reindeer on the roof. I told him it’s about a week and a half too early for that.

Second Hand Weary

Diego-San let me know it was tiring watching me shovel snow from our latest snowstorm.

Back At Ya

Theo would like you to see his nicely groomed back. But he wants to see that you are seeing his nicely groomed back.

Tweet Tweet

Here’s a birdseye view of Diego-San. The bird better be careful because Diego-San still has amazing reflexes.

The Beautiful Ones

I’m reading the memoir Prince was working on when he sadly passed away. I told Diego-San I plan on dressing him up in purple as a tribute.

Self Alarms

The boyz mutually decided that me sleeping until 9 a.m. on a Sunday was unacceptable. So they teamed up to do everything they could to wake me up and get me out of bed.

Close Eye

He likes to study me. After all these years he hasn’t revealed the reason.

That’s the Reason Why

Theo learned some people put up a tree in their house this time of year. He wants to know why we have never done that. He thinks it would be great fun to climb to the top.

Rip Van Diego-san

Diego-San doesn’t want to take any chances that Santa will miss our house so he’s decided to sleep until Christmas Day.

Bag Boyz

This was a first. Diego-San usually lets Theo do the bag inspection work (it’s one of the things that Theo does that Diego-San feels is beneath dignified feline behavior). But he found this particular bag inspection worthy. I tried to get photographic evidence but he climbed out right as I was pointing the camera at him. Moments later, Theo climbed in the bag but he too started to get out when the camera was aimed his way...

Talk to the Paw

Theo is letting his paw (and claw) do his talking for him today.
