No Waste

They’re making sure to take advantage of every square inch of the bed...

Brother and Sister

Norma and Theo are still figuring out their relationship. Unlike Alias who has tried hard to bond with his older brother, Norma is a little bit more apprehensive (as she typically tends to be). Theo likes to clean her and she’s not sure what to make of that even though she lets Alias do the same thing. She loves to step on him while he’s napping inside my laundry bag. This has led to some hissing. I’m sure they’ll figure it out. Then again my brother and sister never did...

I Got This

Bought a new toy that has a plastic mouse that darts around the circle at different speeds. I was pleasantly surprised that Theo took the lead in playing with it. He spends most days sleeping or watching his siblings’ crazy energy so it was nice to see him show some playfulness...

Alias does this often... And each time he gets me to look up.

Three day weekend to celebrate MLK Day. Theo and I will honor one of the most important leaders in my lifetime especially given the recent violence in our country. Theo’s such a calming peaceful soul so I’ve appreciated him more than ever the past few weeks.

Curious about another heavy snowfall. Alias and Norma are becoming true Minnesotans...

Queen of the Post

This was Diego-san’s favorite scratching post. During the many years he used it, he never once tried to climb to the top. Since day one both Norma and Alias have tried to scale it. Norma was finally the first to reach the top.

Job Covered

Alias let me know that another box inspector got on the job before he did.

Theo has never been much a lap cat and he rarely joins us on the couch, but he seems offended that given his seniority, he doesn’t get dibs on my lap.

What Now

Sometimes Norma gets herself in spots where she’s not entirely sure what to do next...

The family that shares a sun puddle is a content family.

8> 8> 8>

I want to tell him, ‘don’t get any bigger Alias, you’re too damn cute.’ But I know he’s going to grow into a very handsome man cat...

Inside Out

They aren’t used to me leaving the house. Theo told them of the old days when I used to leave most every day for hours at a time...

Alias’ 2021 resolution is to learn everything he possibly can from his big brother.
