Yummy - Exotic Food (two)

Having acquired a taste for glasses, I suspect Henry has indulged again. He says Vivika the cat knocked it off the cat perch on purpose and told him to do it.

He claims he does not remember being told chewing glasses is not the thing to do. I must have forgotten to tell him. My fault - again.

Last night -  glasses set two. 

September third - glasses set one.

More Construction? Folks, Get a Life!

The Thanksgiving family is gone -- and they all the house jobless.

Now as I remember, we always left mom with work to do ... just to keep her busy, of course ... so she would not have time to miss us. At least that was the story.

So what are you going to do? No clean up, so we fill the time in another project. Poor Henry. He is so use to destruction in his environment that he just wandered through the gate into his playpen and flopped on his bed.

Another New Cousin

Holidays are great. Another new cousin.  This is Pixy. She is a three and a half year old pup with a challenge. Pixy has a paw that slows her down. Which is great for Henry. He can run laps around her, but it is not so hot for Pixy. She takes it slow and a trip around the block leaves her uncomfortable. That split you see on her right paw goes all the way up to the elbow. The doctor hadn't seen anything like that according to Pixy's mom and dad and was not confident that surgery would help.

Pixy is obviously loved tons though, and she knows it. She is not a romper - but this puppy cousin made Henry very happy. When she climbed into the car to leave, Henry was not a happy camper.

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
Ours was fantastic.

Kitty Cousins

On the topic of kitties ... Henry just doesn't understand why perfectly nice people bother with those critters.

These are his immediate kitty relations from his Whittier home, his Woodinville sister's house and his Eugene sister's house. There is one more, but she is in the closet hiding.

They really don't do much other than annoy dogs and expect the humans to adore them. Cats. Humph.

Sibling Rilvary

Meet Wyatt and Catbaloo. They are Henry's cousins. He just can't figure out their relationship! His cats won't let him do that! Heck, Otto even steals his kibble even when the kitty bowl is full. Go figure that one out! Henry's mom puts Otto and Vivika's food on top of the dryer to prevent robbery. Doggie food is just there, on the floor, and available to any old cat burglar!

No food, no warm kitty.
Not fair.

Evil Human

First time ever with any of my pets over the last sixty years: I cut Henry's nail to the quik! He bled! Didn't cry; didn't even give me a nasty look. Oh Henry. Poor sweet baby.

Energy Machine!

Hey Mom, I'm not tired. How come you don't want to play tug and chase anymore? Come on! I'm incredibly cute. Gardening to do? It's raining ... Oh my gosh! I'll help you dig!  Come on, lets go!

Cat Climber

The ridiculous things my human makes me do for a chunk of turkey frank.  Oh well.  Vivika cat is not liking this, so I'm okay with it.

There.  I've got it.  No space for Vivika cat now! (Insert evil chuckle.)

Henry is more interested in take-away and catch-but-don't-bring-it-back. Football on TV is boring. Looking at it as a back rub and a general sit on a lap and be admired opportunity, it is not so bad.
