I always talk about how needy Chris is but Frankie is almost as needy. He is probably on my lap about half as much as Chris is but some of that difference is because when Chris sees Frankie on my lap he gets on my lap too and Frankie usually gets off, but not always.
What Frankie does that Chris doesn’t do is follow me around the house like a little puppy dog. Sometimes he even follows me in the bathroom.
If I close the bathroom door, he wants in even more.
The following seems to happen more often in our West Virginia home, which is significantly bigger than our Florida home. Sometimes I will go upstairs for something and then come right back down. I feel a little bad because then Frankie follows me up the stairs and then back down again. Chris is the one that needs the exercise, not Frankie.
You may recall this video I posted last January about our house. If you pay attention you can see Frankie following me around for a good portion of the inside tour. It is a 360 degree video so you need to move it around to see Frankie.
I should be clear that I’m not complaining. It is nice to be needed and Frankie is far less painful than Chris in his neediness.
the double joy… we know that feeling ;O)
That photo of the two boys on your lap at the same time is so cute – “extreme togetherness” ! Love the video of the house – it’s huge and so interesting – fun to learn all the stories about the house from the neighbors!
I love the content of the photo but the quality was lacking a bit. It was interesting learning about the house. My wife posted something about it on Facebook and a guy that lived here in the seventies emailed her a long description from memory of his experience here. He also included a drawing of the house and labeled each section as he described it. He is an architect and the house motivated him to become one.
That is really amazing….and to have info from someone who KNEW the house well is really special.
It certainly clears up some questions. We have a door on the second floor that is sealed. Someone said that there used to be a balcony or deck on the roof but it was removed in the eighties. He moved in around 1971 and questioned the purpose of the door. So it has been without a balcony for over fifty years.
The boys snuggling together made us smile.
They can be cute when they are not fighting, like two minutes ago.
And people still think that cats are anti-social. They just never met a socialized cat
Chris is more “social” than any dog I ever had.
Ha, so funny when they crown onto one person like that! We’ve had that happen, and have experienced the little extra company in the bathroom as well.
We really like that first photo of Frankie entwined with Chris. They are both sweet kitties
They sure are, most of the time. Thanks.
The really are cute together. Simon follows the Dad up and the stairs lots too!
If only cats were women and I was still in high school. 🙂
I somehow missed the tour the first time you posted it Very nice house. It is nice to be needed by cats. 🙂
It sure is. Thanks.
Two kitties on one lap seems cozy.
Love and licks,
It usually doesn’t last long.
Frankie is a good boy. At least when he’s not playing escape artist!
Plus, he doesn’t feel the need to scratch me.
Our previous ginger tabby, MacKenzie, used to follow me everywhere. None of ours consistently follow me now. Calista Jo is the most apt to do so. Whoever said you could go to the bathroom alone? XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet
When it comes to the bathroom, it is not just Frankie that wants to keep me company. 🙂
