When in Doubt, Cats

For some reason I haven’t had a lot of compelling topics to write about lately on this blog. Like, I’m watching GLOW right now on Netflix, and I’m really enjoying it, but I don’t have anything specific to say about it. I have 2 episodes left–maybe something will come to me. And I’m seeing Baby Driver on Thursday. Perhaps that will lead to some good blog fodder.

Sometimes I find that posting an “easy” entry gets the muse flowing again, so instead of going two straight days without an entry, here’s what my cats have been up to lately. In fact, the first photo is what they’re literally doing right now as I write this entry.

They’re so weird.
Most of their life centers around their automatic food dispenser, which is only for Walter. Biddy isn’t allowed to eat dry food.
This doesn’t stop him from lurking.
For some reason it’s adorable when I let Walter eat directly out of the container.
Walter usually doesn’t care much about human food, but sometimes he takes an intense interest in it, like this crawfish mac & cheese from Dressel’s.
Here’s Walter’s daytime sleeping spot.

What’s something adorable, weird, or clever your pets have done lately?

  1. My dog Claude’s “safe place” is in the laundry basket in my closet where I keep my dirty clothes. He takes naps there, he hides there during thunderstorms, or when he gets tired of my 1.5 year old son chasing him around the living room. Today, I found my son in the laundry basket with Claude, giving him hugs and snuggling with him, and Claude was giving him kisses. He is a very tolerant dog, even willing to share his safe place.

    He doesn’t like it when I wait too long to do laundry and the basket overflows. Though, he also doesn’t like it when I do laundry and move the basket. And then when I bring it back, there are no dirty clothes in the bottom of it. Sometimes I save a shirt or two to leave in the basket for him.

    • That’s so nice of Claude to share his safe place with your son! Also, I like that animals have safe places. I’ve seen my cats do the same thing (Biddy likes the cabinet under the sink in the second bathroom, and Walter asks me to open the close for him from time to time).
