As Advertised

Norma is the smallest cat who’s lived in this house so the message on the box is apt.

Norma’s Perch

Norma has learned to love her perch. Alias still hasn’t been up on it yet. When she stands tall on her perch, she’s higher up than I am. And that makes her queen of the house.

Bark Bark

It’s been really hot and humid outside. Alias and Norma decidedly do not like the dog days of summer.

Norma is seeing if the world makes any more sense if she flips it upside down.

Norma’s Weekend

Norma is just hanging out this weekend in her tree. That’s all.

This is their heart shaped formation. Pretty impressive.

Oh No

Alias has a hard enough time keeping time now I’m asking him to learn it in Japanese…

The substitute food lady took care of Alias and Norma as I was on a panel in Indianapolis over the weekend. I’m beginning to think they may like her better than me because she plays with them more than I do. Or maybe it’s just they are getting their pent up energy out during her brief visits while they have me around all day most every day.

Napping Norma

Her previous favorite napping spot was on top of a box. This place is much more plush.

Norma has discovered the new cat tree isn’t as scary after all…

Schedule Changes

Big week ahead including the re-appearance of my suitcase…

The scratching post was in near mint condition all through the years that Thompson, Diego-san, and Theo lived here. Norma and Alias? Torn to shreds after three years.

This pic was taken by the substitute food lady last week. So apparently she taught Alias how to help her draw Norma out from under the bed…

Brand New Tree

Bought this fancy new cat tree. So far it’s mostly been ignored. Guess I should have saved the box to see if they preferred that instead.
