Theo Returns

Theo spent most of yesterday trying to get me to feed him. It’s been a long long time since that’s been the case. Good to have him at his Thelonious best.

Action Packed

Big excitement yesterday afternoon... I let a huge fly in when I came back from my scooter ride. Norma’s eyes lit up and she bolted after it. She chased it to where Alias could catch it with his front paws. They tag teamed it... of course they were disappointed when I didn’t let them eat it.

Weekend Plans

I guess Alias has decided we’re all just going to let things hang out this weekend.

Involuntary House Cats

They want at the birds, squirrels, rabbits and bugs on the other side of that window...

Our Lil Thoroughbred

Alias was disappointed I didn’t sign him up to race in the Kentucky Derby.

I’ve Got a Secret

Theo whispered a secret into Alias’ ear. Given the response, I’m not sure I want to know what it is...

Whoop de Doo

Wednesday naps and belly rubs. Norma knows how to live it up.

Theo needs some work with his synchronized snoozin skills.

Under the Bed

The weekend was all about finding different places to take a nap.

Friday, April 23, 2021


Alias is doing his best to bond with his brother. And it melts my heart. Theo still spends most of the day by himself, but he clearly has accepted his brother more than his sister (who is more squirrelly and skeptical). There’s definitely a shared love of sun puddles...

We’re all still waiting for spring to truly arrive. Even those who have never lived through a spring before.

Wednesday, April 21, 2021


Theo skipped his meal last night. He’s been doing that more and more. He was lying very still next to me when Alias decided he would cheer his brother up by plopping himself on Theo. Theo yelped but Alias soon got his wish- Theo’s full attention (and tongue bath).

Tuesday, April 20, 2021


When the spotlight shines, Norma knows exactly what to do (look very cute).

Friday, April 16, 2021

Up to Date

Alias wants everyone to know all of us in the household are up to date with our vaccinations. Human and feline.

Thursday, April 15, 2021


Norma loves to slip under my covers and then she tries to paw my face and bite my chin. I don’t especially enjoy this. For all his life, Diego-San loved to slip under the covers and nap right next to me, head resting on my arm or shoulder. It was like having a purring heating pad next to me. The past two nights Norma has done the same. I’m hoping this becomes a lifelong thing...

Wednesday, April 14, 2021


It snowed yesterday. Alias is still wet behind the ears but he knows enough to know it’s not supposed to be summer like one day winter again the next.

Theo’s Trick

Theo pulled off his stand by the food guy’s feet without the food guy realizing he was there and when the food guy tries to avoid stepping on Theo, the food guy kicks himself really hard in the shin, trick.

My neighbors have young children and as the family walks by my house, the kids have noticed Norma and Alias sitting in the window. The kids always stop and point at them. The two are becoming neighborhood stars.

Thursday, April 08, 2021


Norma was intrigued by her first thunderstorm. Theo was intrigued with his sister being intrigued by her first thunderstorm.

Ultra Relaxation

Norma is a far more frequent back napper but the times Alias does it, he turns into jelly, a boneless cat. Theo on the other paw, has never spent a moment on his back. 

Tuesday, April 06, 2021

We Still in Minnesota?

It’s been summer like the past few days, so much so that I turned on the air conditioner yesterday afternoon. Theo is stunned by this development.

Hanging Out

He sat there with his tongue hanging out long enough for me to run downstairs to grab my phone and take his picture. Theo being Theo.

Wednesday, March 31, 2021


I took a morning work break. My housemates joined me. My break went from 15 minutes to an hour because none of us wanted to get up. Don’t tell my boss.

The Chair Look

Norma took my suggestion to ‘take a seat,’ quite literally.

Friday, March 26, 2021

Theo’s Platform

Theo thinks it’s far past time that someone stands up for the weekend. 

Thursday, March 25, 2021

Alias’ Nest

There’s a box of cat food inside the Chewy box. Alias thinks if he sits on top of it, it will hatch much quicker.

Wednesday, March 24, 2021

Rookies of the Year

They are less than a year old but no one on this planet know how to enjoy naps more than Alias and Norma.

Monday, March 22, 2021

Butting in Line


Theo patiently waited his turn to try out the newest box. Then someone cut in line and Theo turned to staff to rectify the situation.

Friday, March 19, 2021

Happy Weekend

Theo staring blankly into space. Alias coyly being shy in my hand. Just another great night in our house.

Thursday, March 18, 2021


If you look at the white fur on Theo’s chest abstractly, you can see a white cat with a long tail. It’s Norma!

Wednesday, March 17, 2021

Sibling Love

Norma proves a partial hug can be just as nice as a full hug...

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Pro Sun

Norma wants to know why I don’t leave the sun on in at least some of the house all the time. There are even days I don’t turn it on at all. She thinks sun baths are great for herself and her brothers.

Monday, March 15, 2021

Theo Returns

His personality got closer to what it was last week. Theo actually played with toys and his siblings. And he ate all his meals. I still am concerned at how hard the past year has been on my buddy.

Friday, March 12, 2021

Alias’ Motto

Sometimes you just need to lie back and let your brother lick the top of your head.

Thursday, March 11, 2021

Front and Back

Norma can’t shake the feeling that I’m not the only one watching her...

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Spinning in Fascination

It was a little warm in the bedroom last night so I turned on the ceiling fan for the first time in Norma and Alias’ lives. They weren’t quite sure what to make of it.

Tuesday, March 09, 2021

Guard Cat

No one would dare try and break into our house with such a ferocious feline guarding us.

Monday, March 08, 2021

Slip Slidin

Norma’s new favorite thing to do is get a running start and then leap into the hammock. This causes the hammock to become a sled, sliding along the carpet. Weeee...

Thursday, March 04, 2021

Historic Times

Norma watches me each time I step outside... It makes me wonder what they will think when I return to working in an office eight plus hours a day. Theo can tell them all about those past days. Norma and Alias have only been living during a time when humans are constantly present... They are cats and will adjust. But this is such a bats*&t crazy period of our existence that they happened to be swept into...

Alias has seen a lotta new things in his short lifetime, but his sister sitting inside a banana takes the cake.
