Dave is just luxuriating in kitty cuddle heaven!
What is it about the bird bath?
They just got fresh water in a freshly cleaned indoor water bowl, but noooo… they gotta go for the chopped up ice, bird bath water. 😀
This morning, while doing my rounds, I had an unexpected visitor – my brother’s beautiful dog! He is usually very shy and tends to sneak up behind a person, and under their hand, for sneaky pets, but not today! He was quite happy to come right up for some attention.
While I was petting him, I heard a noise above my head.
As usual, the cats had followed me while I was doing my rounds. Butterscotch and Beep Beep will bully each other to be carried. This morning, Butterscotch came along, and she was not happy to see our visitor!
Sadly, when I paused to take the picture, my visitor went away.
As I started back, I saw Butterscotch was not the only one unhappy with our visitor!
Even Junk Pile cat had been following along and was up a tree, but before I could get a picture, he’d jumped down and bolted further into the grove.
I want a dog. 😀
I left to brush my teeth before going to bed. I came back to find my bed was taken.
Dave likes to sit on my husband’s chest while he tries to use his computer. Which typically results in my husband losing the use of at least one hand, because he ends up having to support a cat butt.
The house is getting a bit chilly these days, so my husband has taken to wearing a vest. Dave quickly discovered that the inside of the vest makes a nice warm nest, while my husband discovered that the vest frees up both his hands so he can use the computer.
They have been spending quality time together in the mornings.
What a beastly beast he is! 😀
I admit, my morning rounds are not as consistent as they should be. Some mornings, when my daughter has a shift, it’s earlier – and this time of year, pitch black, still! Others, like today, I can wait until there’s actually light out.
Which means, I can get pictures of the company I get. 😀
I always do the cat food and water first, then do the feeding station. The cats will happily abandon food and fresh water to come join me.
Because, apparently, bird bath water is better.
They also like to use the bird feeder pole as a scratching post. 😀
Creamsicle was all set to jump on me!
I didn’t let him.
As I finished up at the feeding station, I realized I had an audience.
Gosh, they are so funny.
Also, that aloe vera behind Dave is the baby of one we had before our move. It’s about half the size of the mama was. We called it the sarlacc, so I guess this is sarlacc junior. 😀
Cheddar, having no problem with a phone camera all up in his face!
Oh, to have the life of one of our own cats… 😀
With the wind knocking over the bird feeder so often, the hanging feeders were getting pretty damaged. So the last time it happened, I decided it was a good time to get a suet feeder for the winter.
I think it’s going over rather well, with the chickadees!
