Wordless Wednesday: Waiting 4 Our Friends

3-1-17

When the rain stopped the other day, I finally was able to take the canine trio for a dry walk. I left the front door open in case the cats wanted to catch some of the fleeting sun rays. As we came walking back down the street, I saw Nine and Mini Cooper watching our return. Were they happy to see their dogs returning? Maybe they were happy because they know that in the afternoon after I walk the dogs, everyone eats? But maybe they weren’t happy at all. Maybe they were saying to each other, “Drat! Here come those slobbering idiots again!” Personally, I like to believe the former – they miss their friends when they are gone.

I am glad that my 4 cats are indoors only. I am not sure that I could keep up with 28 wet paws coming in the front door on a rainy day, 12 are quite enough. Happy Wednesday.

Monday Mischief: Knee Begging

2-20-17

Louise has been knee begging forever. That is when she quietly places her head on your leg and opens her big brown eyes really wide to say “please!”  This particular picture, looking down from where I am seated, is of her daily (always around 3:30 PM) begging to go for a walk. She gets tired of me sitting at my desk and decides it is time for me to get up and be with her. If I don’t respond she starts knocking my hand up when I am trying to ‘mouse.’ The funny thing is that Squash before her used to do this same thing. He would decide it was time for an afternoon walk and he would push my hand away from the keyboard with his big furry head. Once he passed over the rainbow bridge, Louise started doing this. She pushes my hand, but she is more into placing her head or paws on my leg.

“I wish I could accommodate, but dogs are not on my work schedule until 4:30, Miss Louise. You should know that after 7 years at the Zoo. I do love to look into those beautiful brown eyes, however, so don’t go too far.”

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Leaning on the Fire Stick

2-25-17

Noel, the Christmas Cat, and the baby, Mini Cooper enjoying the late winter rays. Mini is leaning on the ‘fire stick’ plant. I know it is poisonous and that it could burn their mouths if they eat it, but they don’t seem to bother with it. This is the second one we have grown in the house. It is also called a Pencil Cactus.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wordless Wednesday: 4 On The Floor

2-22-17

A rare capture of the 3 dogs and Mini Cooper in the living room.

Starting bottom left, counter clockwise – Sofie is gnawing on her bed. She doesn’t tend to lie on it, but, as you know, she aways has to be gnawing on something to feel secure.

Charles is hoarding all the toys that were on the floor. He really has been liking the big dog’s flat unstuffed animals. Here he has a ‘cat’ cat toy and Louise’s big blue flat dog. He actually enjoys nibbling on the stuffies for a good while.

Louise is supervising. She doesn’t play much unless I am on the other end of a toy or there is food in it.

Mini Cooper is getting ready to do her usual high jump in front of the big fish tank. You can find her flying high in the air quite often. I think she is trying to give the fish a heart attack (lucky they can’t have them). She likes to sleep on that particular dog bed too. I think mostly because that is Louise’s preferred spot.

The cats all like the big dog beds (even Noel sometimes). Interestingly, I have not seen Charles try any of them. Maybe he knows that Sofie gets possessive of anything that ‘might’ be hers, or maybe it is because his ex-pen is right there with his bed from the shelter, or because there is another one on the couch (spoiled new comer that he is).

Monday Mischief: I’m Out Of Here

We’re trying to teach Charles about the water and the docks. Not sure yet that he feels safe.

2-27-17

Do you see the ducks to the left of Sofie in the water. Luckily they were far enough out that the dogs didn’t try to swim on this cold day. And, I am not sure what the little man will do since the adult ducks are almost as big as he is.

Charles also got his first good whiff of the crab cages. Oh, spring will be interesting. I just worry about the Osprey and this 15 lb edible.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: King of the Tree

2-19-17

Mr. Nine is on top of the world.

Well, actually, he is on top of the cat tree in the living room. Whoever is up there seems to take great pride in the position (for as long as it lasts). I don’t know where he got that scratch on this nose (it looks like a dot in this picture), but I assume it was from Mini Cooper. They were probably fighting over just this thing: Who gets to be king/queen of the tree? Here at the DogDazCats2 Zoo, watching the cats play ‘king of the hill’ is a constant form of amusement for the humans.

Nine is such a handsome guy. Love you, Niney!!!!

Hope you have a warm Sunday!nolasugar_bwbadge_pm
