It’s Caturday again and Time for the pointy eared people to shine.
If you visit often you’ll know that we adopted a crotchety older kitty earlier this year. We alternate between calling him Titanescu and Titanus Grumpicus Bunny Butt. He spent the first month hissing and swatting at the other two. Then it was reduced to the occasional half-hearted swat. Finally, they could sleep within a foot of one another for at least 10 minutes without a slapfest.
Then I saw this:
Then it went to this:
The above is a milestone as this pic shows what Titanescu is normally like. 🙂
Cute warning! Be sure watch until the end though. My thanks to a Facebook friend who shared this with me. 🙂
I’m hoping to post more often now. I started a project almost a year ago that took up far too much time but I finally finished it. I have a new project, but there’s no time limit and I can do a bit here and there. I’m hoping to have the rest of the pics from our Angel Island trip posted soon.
Now it’s time for the pointy eared people to shine.
Titanescu, on the other hand…
This is just a random bird pic. I was at the park a while back and this Steller’s Jay collecting peanuts.
As anyone with cats knows, they spend most of their time sleeping followed by going berserk for about ten minutes. Sadly, their manic moments usually occur at 0400 when we’re sound asleep at which point we become trampolines. As a result, it’s usually easy to get pics of them being lazy, but not playing.
For your amusement (or horror) I now present a video by cyriak. It begins with cobwebs, but in true cyriak fashion, it ends up with a lot more and gets very weird. 🙂
Just in case the video creeped you out, here’s some cuteness to make the “ick” factor go away.
Another Caturday rolls around and we’ve gone from having a heatwave to having a very cool spell. The pointy eared people are happier, at any rate.
This post is running late as Tito wanted lots of attention and it’s impossible to type around a cat with terminal elevator butt. Of course, he got a lot of scritches and pettings. As you can tell from the title, the theme is “eyes” today.
I couldn’t resist this vid by simonscat at YouTube.
Fall is here. The weather is very confused. Summers in San Francisco are generally cold and foggy. Fall is supposed to be warm and sunny. Karl the Fog can’t seem to make up his mind if he’s coming or going. The other day at the beach (previous post) it was sunny but very windy and cold. We got so sand blasted that I was pulling sand out of my ears. Tonight, Karl returns and tomorrow we may have rain.
The weather isn’t consistent, but the pointy eared people are. They’re consistently strange, sleepy, or cute. Take your pick. 🙂
And from ShoKo (Shorty and Koko) at Youtube, you have this video proving that cats are strange. 🙂
My mad housekeeping came to a screeching halt this week. I was being careful not to terrorize the pointy eared people too much, but the addition of heavy equipment next door made that impossible.
Missing from the pic are the huge dump trucks. Due to some major water main and sewer main replacement in the area, they have been bringing dirt in and taking it back out. The dirt is full of concrete chunks and makes awfully loud crashing noises when it’s dumped in the truck. Most times, the truck is parked on the street out front for loading. That pretty much puts it under my living room window.
Miss Jenny despises the dump trucks. When they’re parked out front, she growls continually until they go away. Then she runs and hides.
Tito hasn’t gone to hide, but he won’t let me get more than a foot away from him.
Before we show off the pointy eared people, we want to give a shout out to all our friends in the flood zones of Colorado. We are fervently hoping the rains end soon and that there are no more losses, human, or pets. There is a Facebook page where they are posting pets lost or found in the flooding. I’m unable to post a link, but it’s called Colorado Disaster Wildfire / Flood Lost & Found Pets.
Another Caturday has rolled around and the pointy eared people are being lazy as usual. There are times when I really envy a cat’s ability to nap all day. I’m still on a massive cleaning and reorganizing binge, so I’m not around as much these days. I’ll be back eventually.
In the meantime, I’m busily cleaning around the fur people. I’ve managed to do it without bringing out the evil sucking machine. I’ve even made it a point to move furniture in slow motion so that they don’t go deep into hiding for hours, if not days.
Some of my cleaning has resulted in scenes similar to this. 🙂
Summers in San Francisco tend to be cold and foggy, but all that changes in September. Karl The Fog goes on vacation and the days are sunny and warm. While fall is beginning to arrive for many, summer is just getting started here.
This week, it’s downright hot. Now I know our temps are nothing like we would get in the desert. However, we don’t have air conditioning and we have huge picture windows that get the western sun and heat the apartment up like an oven.
The fur people are NOT amused. We shall survive and they will too. I give them rubdowns with a wet washcloth to keep them cool. Tito and Miss Jenny like it. Today, I’ll try it on Titanescu. If I survive without being smacked around, I’ll let you know. 🙂
