Saturday Caturday

Since I let Radar roam the yard the other day, he’s been relentless in wanting to go outside. At this very moment, he’s at the side door, crying to be let out. Because the yard is fenced in, I have to pick him up & carry him to the back yard. If I have things to do out there, like pick tomatoes or do some other kind of yard work, it’s OK but I don’t really like it when he’s out there on his own. This neighborhood is sick with rabbits (there’s rabbit shit everywhere) & if the rabbits can get through the spaces between the fences, you know a determined kitty can figure out how to do it. I would absolutely hate to lose Radar. He’s such a friendly lovable cat, some other family would invite him into their home in a heartbeat.

Here he is, crying.

After about fifteen minutes of this, I yelled, “SHUT THE FUCK UP!” & he did. But now he’s biting my laptop & circling my work area & being a general pain in the ass.

& now this:

Purring as loudly he can, of course!

Saturday Caturday

I bought a black plush blanket to put on the loveseat in my study & bright blue pillows as accent pieces. This morning, before sunrise, I walked into my study & I thought I saw the black blanket moving … but it was Bobby! Almost invisible against the black of the blanket.

I moved in for a closeup.

Now you can see him! He looks quite cozy & comfy there!

Tummyrub Tuesday

My new couch came today! Before it arrived, I had to move Radar off the ottoman, which I had in the front window. I had to move the ottoman because that’s where the new couch was going to go. This is Radar’s favorite place to nap in the morning, since the windows face east & it gets all the morning sun. Of course, he had to roll around & be all cute with me!

His fur was sooooo warm from being in the sun!

But that’s the last time he’ll be able to lie there! Because this is the new couch … with Radar checking it out! He was NOT happy with this latest addition to the house!

Oh well, he’ll get used to it! It’s not like there’s not plenty of other cozy warm places to nap in this house!

Saturday Caturday

It’s Labor Day weekend & soon it’ll be too cold for the cats to be enjoying the open windows. But until that day when the windows are closed against the winter cold, they’ll be in the window of their choice. Here’s Radar in his favorite kitchen window:

I love how the cats can always find a comfy spot. Here’s Radar in between the two pillows on James’ bed. He definitely looks comfortable!

Saturday Caturday

Bobby has been fascinated with the piano every since it arrived a few weeks ago. Usually he sits on top of it but this morning, he looked like he was ready to start playing.

Saturday Caturday … a day late

I was out of town yesterday & away from my laptop, so I was unable to blog about Radar & Bobby. This morning, I was busy catching up on emails & blog posts that I missed yesterday, so I’m just getting to blogging about about my sweeties right now.

I don’t know where Bobby is hiding but Radar is curled up on his favorite box of the moment. As you can see, I still have quite a bit of unpacking to do! More like finding places for everything! But I’m in no hurry. I agree with the cats – it’s always a good time for a nap!

Saturday Caturday

It’s a cool but sunny day here in Buffalo. Some people might complain that it’s not hot enough for summer, but I love this weather! The cats are happy with the sunshine, too. Radar was radiant in this morning’s sunglow.

Saturday Caturday

Radar playing with one of the cat toys. It is filled with catnip – every so often, he stops to lick his paws & rub them on his face.
