Caught In the Act

IMG_0961-2

Busted! (Licking the plastic frantically.)

Milo has a knack for avoiding the camera but I caught him in the act the other day. He was going to town, licking the bags. (I even got some video of it.) I don’t know what he gets from it but he’s always had a strange fascination with plastic.

Olli on the other hand has developed a bad habit of drinking from the toilet. Um, what?

Apparently the filtered water in the moving water fountain that I’ve been providing for the past 6 years just isn’t cutting it anymore. I can’t imagine what nutrients he could be getting from toilet water; or what flavors he’s attracted to. Ewww!

If a cat spoke, it would say things like, ‘Hey, I don’t see the problem here’.

Uneasy Treaty

Rarely do I see the boys, both at ease, this close to one another. Milo must have been feeling particularly needy or lonely when I caught this uneasy treaty earlier this week.

Although, I don’t know that I should necessarily call him “at ease” here.

He’s still quite alert and annoyed at my photography.

Olli on the other hand, could care less. King of the pillow.

Interestingly, I found Milo bogarting the pillow today!

Touché Milo. Touché.

Cats are mysterious folk. There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of.

Oh, the indignity

The boys are recovering from the humiliation of BATH DAY. The horror!

don’t you understand?

After these messages we’ll be right back.

Fantastic Feats

Olli can JUMP.

I had no idea. Tubby little guy can really get some air.

I’ve been trying like crazy to get some good pictures of these fantastic aerial feats.

But it’s difficult!

I even bought a remote for the camera to allow me to set the camera on the tripod and activate it from the floor while I play with him. Milo watches but rarely gets involved. I can get him to jump too, but he’s always been a jumper since he was a kitten. This past month is the first time I ever saw Olli jump. And he launches himself in the air. It’s rather cute.

He does tend to clam up a bit when I’ve got the camera flashing and clicking in the background though. I only get a few chances and then he’s done.
