Sleeping Spots

Bongo curled up on the bathroom tileIn the summer when it’s hot one of my favorite places to sleep is in the bathroom.

On the nice, cool tile.

While the cats sleep on the futon.

Plotting against me, I’m sure.

But something went wrong.

I’m not sure what happened.

Maybe there was a cat fight or something.

Gizmo, could you at least give me my mat back?

Cat Containers

Bongo caught lying in his kennelOkay, I’ve got to tell you what’s been going on at my house while I’ve been absent from my blog.

There seems to be a great jealousy of my dog jail kennel from the cats.

I guess they wish they had one as nice as mine.

But I’m guarding it and I might need to put a sign up that says “No Cats Allowed!”

So the cats have had to settle for second best.

.

.

Scratchy had to go to the vet the other day so his cat jail was sitting out.

And he’s claiming it – or guarding it – or something.

Who would want your silly old cat cage anyway Scratchy?

It’s too little to be any good.

Now Gizmo, not to be left out, had to get creative.

He made his own little cubby.

Not as good as mine…

But I have to admit that Gizmo is innovative.

Or is that in na box?

Famous Gizmo

Bongo digging inWe had a horrendous thunder storm today so I wouldn’t couldn’t go on my walk.

I think my person was too scared of the thunder so I didn’t want to take a chance and take her.

I thought I would be nice to her and keep her safe at home.

So to pass the time I started looking at a magazine.

National Geographic.

And I learned something I never knew before.

.

.

Gizmo is famous.

He not only has his picture on my blog, but he has a full page in National Geographic.

Don’t tell him that I’m a little bit jealous.

If he knew that I’d never hear the end of it.

And if you don’t believe me you can check out the online picture of Gizmo here: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2014/08/gombe-chimpanzees/shah-rogers-photography#/10-gizmo-670.jpg

What? You don’t think this looks anything like Gizmo?

That’s gotta show what happens when a little fame goes to your head.

What to do with Cats

Scratchy on top of a cat cageSomething happened while I was at the dog hotel.

The cats I live with took over my blog.

Do you believe it?

Cats on my blog!

And they tried to keep it a secret.

But one of my blogging buddies spilled the beans.

So I had to do something.

And I did.

.

I sent Scratchy to the vet.

Scratchy hates the vet.

And they must not like him either.

When I go to the vet I get treats and loves.

Scratchy doesn’t get any treats or loves.

It was the perfect punishment for Scratchy.

But now I’ve got to figure out what to do about Gizmo.

Gizmo stretched out on the couch

He’s the chief instigator these days.

Bongo looking cute

I’m open for ideas.

Cat Blogging

Gizmo lying on his backIt’s been really quiet lately.

No Bongo around.

Peaceful, but kind of boring.

Scratchy and Gizmo together on the futon

Hey Scratchy, check this out.

Bongo’s blog.

There aren’t any posts on it.

We can do whatever we want and he won’t notice.

Gizmo lying in front of the door

I think I’d better hang out by the door now.

I need some advance notice when Bongo comes back.

Beat the Thunder

Bongo wandering off the trailI think I’ve got it figured out now.

My first attempt today didn’t work.

That was when my person went outside and then it thundered.

I pushed the door to the garage open and escaped through the open garage door.

I ran down the street and found one of my person’s friends driving by and he let me into his truck.

I thought he was going to drive me away from the thunder, but instead he took me to my neighbor’s house and my neighbor took me back home.

And there was still thunder there.

So later in the day when I took my person for a walk, I tried a new tactic.

I’ve heard of people running in a squiggly path to avoid being hit when someone is shooting at them.

***

So I decided I’d try that same thing with the thunder. I hardly stayed on the trail at all.

And it worked.

There was no thunder the whole time I was on my walk.

Even though Gizmo was doing his best to evoke thunder in his sleep.

You’re going to have to do better than that Gizmo.

Bongo walking back toward the trail

Because I beat the thunder today!

Taking Over

Bongo on his trail refusing to budgeThis is Gizmo.

You see, Bongo is out on his trails somewhere refusing to budge because of the thunder.

So I think it’s going to be a long time before he finally comes home.

I figured I’d better write this blog post for him so he doesn’t go a day without a post.

I’m sure he’ll thank me for it.

I’m not sure what he’s got against thunder anyway.

.

Me…?

Gizmo on Back 01

I just take it in stride.

Yeah, it’s nice and cozy here inside the house.

Gizmo on his back on the carpet

No worries about Bongo running right over me when he goes from one spot to another.

He does that, you know. He doesn’t seem to care what or who is in his way.

I’ll just take advantage of Bongo’s fear of moving along on his trail.

Gizmo on his side on the carpet

He’ll be out there for a long time.

Oops!

Here he comes now, and he looks mad.

Bongo with glowing eyes outside a glass door

Hey Bongo, I figured you’d be home late so I put together a blog post for you.

I hope you don’t mind.
