A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Month: July, 2021

Twinkies

Fireball and Mac were enjoying watching the goings on in the yard. The mean squirrels were chattering at them from the trees. Good things there was glass separating squirrels from cats.

When You Really, Really, Really Don’t Want to Get Out of Bed

Sometimes it’s not easy getting started with your day. The human was stuck because she couldn’t finish making the bed. The Big Guy was determined that he was not going to move.

Making the bed around the big kitty did not seem to change his mind. He just sat there looking cute…and aggrieved.

The human could hardly blame him, as the 2-legged had a hard time getting out of bed herself. The awful heat and humidity had broken briefly and everyone was enjoying a couple of days of blessed cool with low humidity.

Hot Paws

It is so hard to get photos of Corky, but the human caught an adorable one last week in the midst of the horrible heat and humidity. Clearly, his paws were hot and he stretched one of his forelegs out and spread his toes to cool off while he slept. That’s a new paw dangle technique that the human hasn’t previously recorded in this house.
