I was transferring photos and videos from my phone to my computer this morning when I came across this video I took in early January. It was right after the new Roomba vacuum cleaner that my wife ordered arrived.

Chris is Back at the Vet
Chris is still having trouble with his ears so he is at the vet getting another antibiotic treatment.
Before we brought him in, both Floki and Frankie were inside his carrier, but I only managed to photograph Frankie.
I am currently at the vet waiting for Chris.
Photo Friday: Classic Tigger and Alex
Before Chris, Frankie, and Floki, there were Tigger, Alex, and others. Here is a photo of Tigger and Alex taken on this day in 2007.
Here is a post from April of 2016 ror Throwback Thursday. Who doesn’t love an affectionate cat?
Chris is the most affectionate cat I have ever had. He is also more affectionate than any dog I have ever had. He spends a good part of his day on my lap, on Rose’s lap or curled up with Frankie or Puck.
I’m not complaining, I love that about him, but part of that affection is an unusual need to bite, especially my nose. Fortunately, the biting is only a small part of his affection but it is quite annoying and the reason all the cats get locked out of the bedroom at night.
Now I’d like to hear about your most affection pet.
Photo Friday: Bonded Pair
I saw these two cats today at a Pet Supermarket in Largo, Florida. I was struck by how the ginger was lying completely on top of the white and black cat.
Their chart said they are a bonded pair and must stay together. They are both about 8 months old so they may also be littermates.
Letting Go is Hard to Do, Especially When it’s a Lizard
Here is Chris the famous lizard hunter for throwback Thursday.
Chris slipped past me and out the door twice on Sunday. The first time he caught a lizard right away. Even though Chris has gained some weight lately, he is still better at catching lizards, and everything else, than all the other cats we have ever had. When he does catch a lizard, he wants to immediately bring it in the house.
I’m not sure why he has to bring his catch inside but he will just sit at the door with a lizard hanging from his mouth until someone lets him in. That was not going to happen Sunday and I tried to get him to let it go but he was not up for that.
Does anyone else have a cat that has to bring their catch inside?
Photo Friday: Frankie on Film
I got an old 120 film camera for Christmas. I wanted to test it, but the film cost, processing, scanning, and postage two ways meant each of the twelve photos cost about $4. I didn’t want to use them up taking cat photos, but I figured one wouldn’t hurt.
Chris the Destroyer
Here is a post from April 2016 for Throwback Thursday. Chris still scratches at the door sometimes but he has settled down in his old age.
Sleeping used to be difficult with an annoying cat around. Chris would keep us up at night, especially me, by biting my nose and digging his claws into my neck and back. We tried closing him out of the bedroom but he would go through great lengths to get us to open the door, including digging up the carpet. Since we no longer have carpet at the door, sleeping has been easier. We still put up with him crying at 4:00 a.m. but that is nothing compared to what we used to go through.
Unfortunately, our new home has doors that are not made using the highest of quality standards, so since Chris couldn’t dig down and destroy the carpet, he started digging up to destroy the door.
We decided to replace the door, along with the bathroom door, and put in something a little better. I’m not exactly a handyman…

Photo Friday: Afternoon Sun
Here is Frankie sunning himself one afternoon recently.
Usually, this is Floki’s afternoon spot, but sometimes Frankie is there first.
To Sleep, Perchance to Snore
Here is Chris snoring for Throwback Thursday. This was from March 2016.
Our cats entertain us in countless ways, especially Chris. If I were to count, I would add snoring to the list. You may need to turn your speakers up a little for this one.
Do your cats snore?
