Photo Friday: In-Line Napping


I have accumulated a ton of photos lately of our cats napping together on our bed, which has become a very popular napping destination.

Where do your cats, or dogs, like to nap?

Photo Friday: The Gift Guardian


After a recent shopping trip for Christmas gifts, Chris decided it was important to guard one of those gifts as soon as we brought it in the house.

Chris is certainly a proactive cat that knows how to take the initiative. Perhaps he would be a good example in an employee training class.

Photo Friday: Television or Sleeping Cat?


All of our cats have two or three favorite spots to nap. One of Frankie’s favorite spots is in front of the television. He only blocks a small part of the picture but his presence is a distraction because he tends to draw the eyes toward him and away from the television.

Did you notice the scratches? I wonder who did that.

Chris’s Tenth Gotcha Day


It is hard to believe that Chris has been with us now for ten years. He is not as much of a “bad” cat now as he was in his youth but he is still a huge PITA sometimes. Now, for example, he is on my lap as I write this and is clawing at my face and chest trying to get me to pay more attention to him.

I decided to keep this post simple today since I have already made a big deal about many of his other gotcha days. This time I thought I would just find an early photo of Chris that I have not already posted on this blog. The photo below was of Chris and Tigger taken on December 3, 2009, less than three weeks after we adopted him.

If you haven’t read it yet, the following two posts talk about Chris’s adoption.

Decisions, decisions

Chris Comes Home

We’re Back


We got back late Monday from our vacation to Germany where my wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary. We had a great time there but we were happy to get home and see our kitties. They were happy to see us too.

Of course, there were a lot of things we needed to do after we got home. For one thing, the bed sheets needed to be changed.

Frankie and Flokie were eager to help but Chris was lying in the hallway in a diabetic coma from all the dry food that he had unrestricted access to while we were away. He did manage to come up on the bed after it was made.

Frankie decided to join me in the bathroom. He likes to get on the sink and move the soap dish for some reason but this is the first time I saw him lie on the sink.

We also had plenty of laundry to do and Frankie and Floki were eager to help with that too.

I will write about our trip on my personal blog, CharlesHuss.com, when I have time so keep an eye out for that.

Hopefully I will be able to get back on track soon. We are having some major work done on our home starting Saturday so I don’t know how normal things will be for a while but I will try visit blogs and get some writing done if I can.
