Caturday: Home – The Best Place To Be

Hi, Mini Cooper here.

I have been working very hard to make sure that everyone stays in line while they are isolated in the house because of this scary COVID thing. It has been great fun to have all the humans at our beak & call (that means that they are our servants (but what else is new).

I have made it my job to occupy as many laps as I can throughout the day.

Noel here. Look, little Mini, it is “Beck and Call” and I am the only one that can tell the human’s what to do. I was here first, before all of you, and Mom’s lap is mine if I beckon. So back off and scat!!

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Recycling

An oldie (from 2015) but a goodie! Look how young they were. Mini was a kitten.

Caturday: An Exhausting Day

It appears that Noel pulled out a whole claw and now has a fungal infection going on. She did not like going to the doctor, but she was as good as gold. She even let them take her in the backroom and cut her nails. The pinky claw grew back thick and dark and I was worried it was going to turn into her pad. They cut it really short. Let’s see how it comes back in. She was happy to get home and go directly to sleep in Louise’s office bed.

Caturday: Office Mate

Noel is making me lose my mind this week. I am working from home and she just has to be part of the action.

It is one thing to just lie on my papers, but she has figured out that my primary focus is on the big screen, so let’s sit in front of that.

I can hear her little pea brain thinking “…maybe I will lie on the keys of the laptop and bring up screens that Mom never knew existed.”

Don’t you think everyone should have an OFFICE CAT?

Caturday: Can You Stop For A Moment, Stella?

Trying to capture a picture of Stella is like trying to get a good shot of lightning in the sky.

Black and White Sunday: Cooperative Gazing

A rare moment with Noel, Nine, and Mini Cooper all looking out the door probably at a squirrel or bird on the deck.

It is not often that these 3 do anything together, and definitely not cooperatively. According to my research, there may exist a very loose dominance hierarchy amongst a group of cats, but they do not form an interdependent hierarchy as dogs do. That means that they do not have a pack mentality, though they can gang together for survival, usually around food (hence feral cat colonies in the wild). The other interesting thing I learned today is that cats have relatively limited ability for complex visual signally, which we see in other animals that form social groups, because cats largely developed as solitary hunters, without the need for complex social interaction between each other. Not having this signally ability can lead to more fighting (basically they don’t understand what the other wants). It is all starting to make sense to me now…..
