It was time to make the bed the other day but who would blame me for not wanting to break this up?
Mark your calendars. Chris will turn ten on May 14 and his eBook will be free that day on Amazon. If you haven’t read it, it covers the first few years after we adopted him, which were the most difficult. Click here for the link.
I have talked about this before but I never get tired of it. Frankie loves soft, fleece blankets, especially a small green one that we sometimes put on our bed just for him. He treats this blanket like it is his little cat girlfriend.
I have several videos of Frankie with his blankie but never from the beginning, until now. My wife put the blanket on the bed the other day and I started filming as soon as Frankie jumped on top of it. He always starts with the corner which would not be unusual for a human but it is nice to know that cats are smart enough to know that the corner is easier to work with than the middle.
Today I am combining Photo Friday with Jelly Belly Friday. These are all photos of Chris taken at various times this year. Chris is a cat that rarely shows his belly inside the house (unlike Frankie) but he almost always rolls on his back as soon as he goes outside.
Chris’s routine is to roll around first, eat grass second, and then explore the area around the house. Frankie’s first priority is to explore and he is not content to staying near home.
Chris may be overweight but he is certainly not shy about showing his belly to the world. Who else has a cat not afraid to show their belly?
Since Floki is a Siamese cat, he has the trademark cross-eyed look. Here it seems that his left eye is looking at the camera while his right eye is checking something else out. I believe the condition is caused by a slight misalignment of the retinas so he really is focusing on just one thing.
I think it adds to his cuteness. What do you think?
While looking for a photo for yesterday’s post, I came across a video of Chris from this day in 2010. It is not one of his best videos but it is nostalgic and does give a little glimpse into what Chris was like back then. There is also a cameo by our cat Alex.
I believe this is also the first HD video I have of Chris. What do you think?
I already did “This Day in Christory” and “This Day in Pucktory” so I feel obligated to do one for Frankie, even though the titles are getting progressively worse. I guess next it will be “This day in Floktory” although, after saying it in my head, I think I will call it something else.
Here is Frankie on March 22, 2014. We adopted him in February of that year and I forgot to do a Gotcha Day post for him so this will have to be the next best thing.
