Bug Ballet

GGK versus the bug in a dance of pirouettes. It was reported that she caught the bug like a ball with her front paws, then promptly ate it.

****I think she looks like an otter in the last picture. 


Hands Free Cat

Totally hands free! No Wifi or Bluetooth required!

(Just a sports bra that she has her back foot firmly planted in.)


Sunday was “spa day” which meant nail trimming and tooth cleaning. So my pre-coffee morning started by being covered in cat toothpaste and no small amount of hatred and fur.


Forgiveness came in the form of eggs. #BlackCatFriends


Just One Soft Pet

MomBert and the BF stopped by for a quick visit and a cup of coffee. In his formal role as The Helper Cat, Miles greeted his grammie with lap cuddles, and then attempted to welcome the BF to our home. Miles sat on the footstool conveniently within petting distance, looking attentively at the BF.


Nothing happened. To demonstrate what was supposed to happen, he went back to Grammie who cuddled him and told him he was handsome.

Miles then gave the BF another opportunity to pet him from an even better angle, the arm of the chair.

Nothing happened.

Miles could tell that Grammie and I were encouraging the BF to “just give him one soft pet” so he extended his head at the ideal trajectory for soft pets.

Nothing happened.

Sadly the BF was apparently raised in some type of cult whose doctrines must have preached that animals are dirty, and the only good “pet” is one that is outdoors preferably far from humans.

Miles just wants bring happiness with his handsomeness. He talks to everyone-they might have treats-,offers his assistance to delivery and repair persons, and even stays visible for the entirety of visits by toddlers intent on treating him like a plush toy. He’s not used to rejection. He really stuck with him.


Hours later…


I am nuts, but Miles is a very clean, non-stinky boy. The BF is stinkier. She may mean that the BF is a stinky boy.
