saturday night.

watching snl, sitting at my desk editing photos.

pickles gets tired, walks into her crate and lays down.

the cat comes up.  she pats me on the leg.  i let her jump up. she purrs then pops down.

she walks toward the crate.

pickles sits up.

the sniff  each other  through the open door.

spree walks in.  pickles looks at her like she’s a space alien.

cat rubs against the dog a couple times then makes her way to the back of the crate.  lays down.

dog looks confused…then lays back down.

and there you have it.

i love my cat but, ….she’s got some weird stuff goin’ on.   kittiosyncracies, if you will.

for instance, her shoe love.  i will often walk into the room and find her rubbing her face on my shoe.  slippers, flip flops, hikers, what have you.

shoecat1“oh yeaaaahhhh baby”

shoecat2“do you MIND?  can we have a minute here?”

so, we already know cody bear doesn’t like cats.  he fancies himself quite the cat hunter.  but my cat, spree, has somehow managed to convince him that she is not a cat and they get along very well.  they’re not bff or anything, but they live in quiet companionship.

but why push the buttons kitty cat?

we walk into the kitchen and she is curled up sleeping under cody bear’s elevated food bowl.   by the time i got back with my camera she was up and sniffing the bowl.

kittiosyncracies3a bold move, cat.

time to review the week.

busy at work.  busy at home.  busy dogs.   the weekend should be the same, but we’re o.k. with that!!!

what we’re not o.k. with is this guy….

nemesiscody bear’s nemesis.  this cat is the one that occassionally wakes us up in the middle of the night banging on our front door.  he pees on everything. he sends his minion kittens over to stare at cody bear.

he’s been here for years and he’s growing more bold. ….we may have to move to a new neighborhood!
