I think we all know how much cats like fresh laundry. Even clothes that have been folded but not put away are fair game.
I’m gonna let the cat out of the bag and tell you Whole Foods now has fresh feline.
Ours is very fresh.
The other day my wife, Rose, decided to give her iPad to her sister since she never uses it anymore. She asked me to remove all of her information but when I started to do that I noticed she had over a hundred photos, many of them were pictures of our cats from 2016.
I wanted to transfer the photos to my desktop computer but I was reminded over and over why I hate Apple. They have a reputation for being easy but I have always found the opposite to be true. I couldn’t access the files by plugging the iPad directly to my computer so I uploaded them to iCloud but when I tried to access them on my web browser I was informed that only an Apple device could view them.
I could go on and on but I eventually got the photos and I want to share some of them with you.
This first one is Frankie doing what Frankie does. It is a bit grainy, probably because of poor lighting.
The next one is Frankie on one of his favorite napping spots; our printer. I have since put a towel over it to make it more comfortable.
This is Floki the day after we adopted him.
Here is Frankie again. This was shortly after we adopted Floki and everyone picked up an eye infection from him. I think it was also the first time Chris went to the vet for a medical issue.
Floki again five weeks after adoption. Notice his brown color is coming in.
My wife works from home a few days a week. In this photo, she is with another person that I don’t know and had to crop her out. It looks like Chris is helping her here.
Here is Frankie and Floki keeping Rose company while she works.
The next photos are of Chris at the vet for an eye infection that he got from Floki. I won’t include those because I already posted them. You can see them here.
Here is another example of how helpful Chris is to Rose. I’m sure she gets a lot more done when Chris is around.
These next two were taken on the same day. The first is my favorite. It is Frankie and Floki enjoying the sunbeam.
Here is Chris enjoying the sunbeam while Floki naps in his shadow.
Here is Frankie, Chris, and Floki. Naturally, Chris has to be lying on top of someone.
Here is a photo that is grainy but it includes all of our boys.
Finally, here is a photo of Frankie, Floki and Chris on the bed next to what I assume are Christmas presents waiting to be wrapped.
What do you think? Do I need to worry about my job as blog photographer?
We hope all our readers get to spend today with the ones they love. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Chris is almost ten years old and has slowed a bit since his prime but occasionally the same young Chris comes out to play.
It is nearly impossible to bring laundry inside and fold it before one or more cats choose to lie on top of it.
The other day I had to pull clothing out from under Chris one at a time. Each piece resulted in a corresponding growl from Chris until he finally grabbed my arm with both paws and bit my hand while kicking my arm with his back feet. I guess that laundry was important to him.
I decided to do something different and post a photo from this day in history, or more appropriate, this day in Christory. I picked one photo from each year that I had photos taken on February 1st. The first one is from 2011.
I’m sure my wife had just finished ironing or was about to start when Chris took over the ironing board.
The next one I took in 2014.
Here Chris is doing what he always does when he goes outside, which is eating grass.
This one is from 2016.
It is Chris washing Puck. It is the only photo I took that day and it is a bit blurry because of movement but I wanted to include it because Puck is in it.
This is from 2018.
Here is Puck, Chris, and Frankie. I have seen three cats together on our bed quite often lately but, unfortunately, Puck is not one of them (Puck died 13 days later).
Frankie is attracted to our laundry basket like flies to shoot I lost my train of thought. Anyway, when I bring it in empty he has to get inside of it. Usually he tips it over but this time I had the cover open so he just jumped inside. Of course, Floki had to investigate what he was doing.
In other news, Chris had several teeth pulled on Wednesday and is doing okay. My main concern is that as of Thursday evening, he has not eaten anything for about three days. They did say that he would lose his appetite after anesthesia for 12 to 24 hours but it has been more than 24 hours as I write this. I will write more about it on my next post.
Chris has not been feeling well for the past week or so. He spends more time than usual resting.
When he is not resting, I hear plenty of sniffles and sneezes. Often he will get on my lap just in time for a sneezing attack. Lucky me.
Chris and Frankie’s relationship is back to normal but I’m not sure how happy Frankie is about it. The look on his face here is a classic “help me” look.
In my mind he is saying, “Please save me from this annoying cat.”
