Norma is hoping for a warm weekend in front of the space heater.

Missed Meal

I went straight from my therapist’s office to the Timberwolves basketball game so I wasn’t able to stop home and feed my housemates their middle meal. I heard plenty about it when I got home after the game.

We’re getting our biggest snowstorm of an unusually mild winter this week. It started last night and is continuing through tomorrow night. Alias and Norma thought the sky was falling.

The Culprit

The great toilet paper unrolling culprit was caught in the act. Since the first two incidents occurred I’ve been solving the problem by leaving the bathroom door closed at all times. This prevented a toilet paper shortage from occurring in the house. Yesterday morning I forgot to close the door after my shower. I went down to get my coffee and when I returned upstairs, Kenta was playing with a shredded roll of toilet paper on the steps.

I scolded him and told him toilet paper doesn’t grow on trees. But I guess in reality it probably does.

Someone has started unrolling toilet paper rolls. The obvious suspect is Kenta because this never happened before he joined us. I came home to a completely unrolled roll at the bottom of the stairs last week. Yesterday I came home and someone had shredded half the roll. Kenta isn’t the only suspect though. Norma loves to investigate everything in the bathroom.

Belly Rubs

When he wants me to rub his belly, Alias will do a tuck and roll. This is the beginning of that process.

Embracing Her Femininity

I think Norma has done a remarkable job in finding her way as the only female in our man cave. She forever holds her own.

Stand Up

Norma is the most vertical cat that’s ever lived in this house.

Common Connections

This was Thompson’s favorite place to rest. Kenta has discovered why Thompson loved it so much. Wait until it’s warm enough to crack the window open a bit.

I didn’t know Daylight Savings Time began last weekend until Sunday afternoon when I got into my car and the clock was one hour behind my iPhone. I’m surprised Norma and her brothers let me sleep in. The predecessors in our house never would have let that happen.

Queen Sized Bed

Kenta doesn’t seem to mind at all that the bed may not be big enough for him although let the record show Norma and Alias have taken naps together in the same bed.

I told Alias he’s my little angel. He’s looking for his halo.

Kenta’s Sister

Kenta and Norma have an interesting relationship. Actually she likes to do the same thing to me, putting her paws under my chin.

Discovering Less Stinky Clothes

I was putting away my laundry and stepped away for 10 seconds. When I returned, this is what I saw.

Remembering Theo

Norma shared this same space and warmth with Theo. I’m glad she’s now willingly doing so with her new brother .

A Winterless Year

We got snow Wednesday and it’s supposed to be over 60 degrees this weekend. Alias is starting to think Minnesota has the goofiest winters in the country.
