Norma is rarin’ to go for another week of meals, play and naps, not necessarily in that order…

Nap Master

This boy enjoys his naps. Good thing too since he is so good at them.

Feeling Judged

She’s not really a lap cat, but it can’t be because I’m stinky since she does like to nap in a pile of my dirty laundry. I guess it’s my personality…

Up To Code

He’s got a couple of quick learning apprentices, but Theo remains the expert box inspector in our house.

Interpreting Theo

Theo is noticing I’m not in the kitchen, and I can’t feed him if I’m not in the kitchen so he is wondering why I’m not in the kitchen.

We have a new nightly routine. Alias loves to play fetch with a toy mouse (I call it mousie). It’s really old, I think it pre-dates Thompson and Diego-San and belonged to Mr. Max. But no one ever had an interest in playing with it until Alias.

He can carry it in his mouth and will retrieve it and bring it back to me until I get tired and stop throwing it. However, Norma wants to play too only she doesn’t play fetch. Instead she intercepts my throws, knocks the mousie down and then plays with it. She’s remarkably athletic, timing her leaps perfectly. She’d make a great NFL cornerback. So Alias patiently waits until his sister is finished and then he’ll bring the mousie back to me to resume our game of fetch.

They know I keep the mousie in the bathroom drawer when we are finished, and now every time I open that drawer Norma runs over thinking the mousie is making another appearance…

Alias is hoping osmosis will help him gain his brother’s wisdom. Alias already clearly knows everything Theo has learned has to do with a full belly.

Old Man

I told Norma how old that laundry basket is. I brought it with me to college and how long ago that was. She now thinks I am very old.

Thelonious Dribble

Someone at the rescue I found Theo at had the audacity to tell me, “that boy isn’t right in the head…” So of course I knew then and there that I would be bringing him home. We had something in common… Not sure what the comment was about but Theo certainly does a lot of things I’ve never seen other cats do… like sit for 15 minutes like this…He’s the only cat I’ve lived with that has a middle name… Dribble, his name at the shelter that still fits him well…

It got really cold here over the weekend with below zero temperatures and dangerous wind chills. Norma and Alias didn’t mind. Just meant more snuggling.

Happy New Year

Theo is glad 2021 is behind us. He’s gonna put his best paw forward in 2022. He just needs to figure out which one that is.
