Romeo’s Patio

 

One of the “daily morning procedures” we go through in our day-to-day lives is the impatient Romeo, waiting for Mom to open the patio door.  He runs in there to get his best “cat’s eye” view on his outer world.

I had my camera at the ready this time to capture one of our most important morning “procedures.”

Oh yeah!  Patio, here I come very soon.

Rusty’s Adventures in Petzone Country

There are times when I take out the Petzone toy and Rusty will show no interest.  TODAY WAS DIFFERENT!!

I think I'll try a different tactic.  I'll remain still and hope the mouse doesn't see me.

Patches Isn’t Too Happy Today

My poor girl had her teeth cleaned today – PLUS – removal of one of her few remaining ones.  She is one of those “lucky” felines who was born with a problem of poor teeth.  Don’t know why – it just started happening when she was much younger, and every 3 or so years, she has had to have one or two or even three(!) removed.

Needless to say, she doesn’t chew her kibble – she gums it and swallows it whole.  It’s no wonder  her stomach has problems on occasion.

Patches is very "touchy, feel-y" this evening - needs to be close for comfort.

Patches looks like she still has some anesthetic in her system.  Eyes look kind of funny.

Patches, I hope you will feel better tomorrow, Sweetheart. ❤

Cats And Computers

I’m on the computer every day, spending lots of time doing “my thing.”  And, many times, either Patches, Rusty or Romeo – or any combination thereof – will be keeping me company.

Today, I’m posting about two of my favorites – pussycats and computer – and show you what happens when the two are combined.

Kitty has his own personal computer.

Rusty’s Begging/Submission Position

 

Whenever Rusty wants to be petted, he flops down wherever he might be and “assumes the position.”  What a guy!

Patches and Mom Kind Of Got Carried Away

Patches likes to approach me while she’s on the kitchen counter near my table.  She knows she will get lots of petting.  And she does!  And she PURRS!!  She is so lovable and sweet.

I kind of get carried away as I’m taking photos.  So, please just breeze through them.  I won’t be insulted – ha.
