Memorial Day

Theo and I spent some time remembering the many great years we got to spend with Thompson and Diego-San…

Norma’s Ledge

Nothing better than sitting on your favorite ledge… except for sitting in a sun puddle on your favorite ledge.

Strange Siblings

Norma still isn’t sure what to make of the strange guy who spends 90 percent of his time in the upstairs bedroom. Theo still isn’t sure what to make of the constant bundle of energy that seems to be living in a dimension with a whole other speed.

That’s a little turntable they are standing on. They probably figure if they stand on it, there will be no noise. So far they aren’t fans of music, especially loud music and really especially my guitar playing and vocal wailing. Norma literally flees the room when that happens.

You’re a Big Boy Now

Alias is getting so big… He probably weighs twice as much as Norma now. His muscles are still developing so he kinda still wobbles when he moves, but once he gets a little stronger he’s going to be a big boy (with the sweetest face).

My Lil Dare Devil

Norma’s favorite spot is the ledge next to the stairway. Diego-San loved to sit up there too, and I always tried to persuade him not to because at its highest it’s a good 10-12 foot drop to the bottom of the steps. Plenty high enough for an injury due to a mistimed leap up. 

Norma’s taken it to a whole other level… she loves to hop across to the ledge on the other side.

I hope they know how truly blessed they are to have one another…

The Look

Theo has taken to sitting next to me while I work during the day. He always has this look on his face. Either he can’t believe how much work I get done, or he can’t believe I’m wasting my life away, working on the computer and talking to people in Zoom meetings.

She’s a Girl

Norma is the first female cat that’s lived in the man cave. She’s also the first cat who refuses to let me clip her claws. I wonder if she wants me to put nail polish on them instead.

Formation 2

Theo’s teaching his brother and sister a new formation. They have to work on sticking out their tongues in this pose.

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.

Our Lil Thoroughbred

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