Guard Duty

mygirl

I am very good a guarding my gal. That other fella needs to move on and find his own lady. ~Bo Jangles

I am so not his girl. He just can’t take a clue. Oh, well, this one time I’ll let him handle my dirty work and keep the new guy away from me. ~CeCe

I, for one, could care less what you do. I am just lounging up here to make the human upset by blocking the TV. Just leave me alone. ~Gizmo

Whoever said I was too big for this napping place is a liar. See I fit just fine.

Now I’m not saying it might take a moment for me to totally uncurl from this position but hey, that is where cat yoga comes in handy. ~Neko

Mama’s Helper

20170813_105843

I am Mama’s helper today. She likes to shred paper this way and I like to hold the bucket still for her. You know buckets they are contrary beasties. I still don’t understand why Mama shreds this way when there is a machine to do that. Maybe she just likes to cover me with confetti.

Once I am done helping Mama with the bucket, I then saunter into Auntie’s room to see what I can assist her with. She looked a tad uncomfortable in her chair so I volunteered to be her back cushion. I don’t think she appreciated my effort.

Oh, well what’s a helpful guy like me have to do to earn his Purina Cat Chow around here.   ~Dominic

When stalking your prey, a great hunter learns to adapt. Take for instance while lying in wait for my prey, Gizmo or the girl kitty, CeCe, I had to create my hiding spot.

I did this by knocking the junk basket by the front door onto the floor.  As you can see the oddest things end up in the basket. Once this was done I find the perfect way to hide where I can peek thru the handle to keep my prey in sight.

Now I wait for them to make a move towards the food and /or water bowl. When I see that they have come out of hiding to steal a quick nibble or drink. I am reading to make my move. The only problem is I forget to watch for the humans.

Oops! Busted by Auntie. What’s a guy supposed to do when he gets caught hunting the new guy. What any self-respecting guy would do. Look cute and wait for her to go away so I can resume my stalking in privacy. A kitty’s work is never done.   ~Dominic

 

Miss Me

20170804_192452

This is the look I have been getting for being away so long. Neko has been scolding me about not posting photos of him and the rest of the Cat’s Eye Gang. I tried to explain to him that since my computer crashed as a way to tell me it didn’t like the new Windows upgrade; it had been a tad bit hard to post anything. As you can see Neko wasn’t buying my excuse, so here you have it, folks. My first post since the middle of July.

Neko in all of his scolding glory. Did you miss me?

Appreciating Black Cats

It has been a few days since I posted. I had some technical difficulties, but I have them fixed for the moment. To make up for my missed daily posts I thought I would give you a few pictures of two of my favorite black cats.

Neko as a kitten. Hard to believe he was ever this small.

 

shadowneko

Neko thinks even his shadow is cute; he’s right of course but please don’t tell him I said that.

spooks

You might think this is Neko but you would be wrong. This is Neko’s doppelganger, Spooky. He is a stray that has adopted us. He was injured in a neighborhood cat fight when he was just a kitten and ended up under a bush in our front yard. My niece felt bad for him so she began bringing him food and water while he recovered. Long story short he fell in love with her and when he had healed a bit took up residence in our back yard. Which he guards with the ferocity of a lion. Neko and Spooks will stand nose to nose with only the patio door between them and play the mirror game in which if one moves a certain way the other mirrors it. It is one of their favorite games.

For anyone who follows me and checked out my author’s page, you will know I am currently writing a book with the cats that share our life as the models for the characters. I called our little clowder of cats, The Cat’s Eye Gang. If you would like to find out more about my book please stop by and visit my author’s page at R.A. Buster- Writer & Blogger. If you check out my blog, you will find my book which I post as I am writing it. In all of its first draft glory. Let me know what you think and please feel free to subscribe to get each new installment as it is being written.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the two black cats that bring luck into my life.

Time to Hide

When the big sucking monster comes growling out of its cave, you have to find the best hiding place.

Gizmo vs. The Vacuum Cleaner

I think I’m safe up here hiding behind the laundry. It is also a great place to take a nap.

The Cat Whisperer

“Even Mommy, the cat whisperer has to take a nap sometimes, Bo.” ~Dominic

“Well, we need to watch over her while she sleeps, although how she can with Magic, the wonder dog snoring up there is beyond me. I’m going to just take a bath.” ~Bo Jangles

“I don’t know how she can sleep with you two cat chatting away, go away, I got this.” Magic, the Wonder Dog.
