Which is to say, here are all three Scalzi cats in my office at one time: Zeus on the chair, Ghlaghghee on the chaise, and Lopsided Cat on the low window table. Collect them all! Also, Daisy the dog was in the room just before the picture was taken, but you only have my word […]
“Hello, you talking monkey things. I have been informed that we have arrived at the occasion of the 7,000th entry on Whatever, and that as is custom with you incomprehensible monkey things, this occasion must be marked with some special event. So here is the special event. First, I will sleep. Then I will doze. […]
“What’s that? You want to use the desk? Yes, well. Of course you may, at some point, for whatever incomprehensible talking monkey thing it is you do here when you are not scritching me. What? Writing? How adorable. However, at the moment I’m afraid I simply must use this desk. I am doing a very […]
Folks have been asking after the feral cat and the bunny, on account I have not discussed them here recently, so for those interested, an update. 1. First, bad news on the bunny front: The bunny escaped from her outside hutch, which we moved her to during the summer, roughly a month ago and has […]
Lopsided Cat and Papa Fuzzy share a special moment. I believe I may have mentioned that the personalities (and physical descriptions) of the Fuzzy Family in Fuzzy Nation are based at least partially on the family cats; Papa Fuzzy clearly shares some DNA with Lopsided Cat. Lopsided Cat, for his part, finds Papa Fuzzy very […]
“Hope you enjoyed that extra day off. Now get back to work.” Strong words from a large cat.
I suppose I could have told you myself. But I think it sounds better coming from him. See you all on Monday.
“I do not always sleep on luggage. But when I do, I sleep on Samsonite™.” He’s either saying that or “Dude, really? I totally have bed head and you’re taking a picture of me now? Not cool.” Sorry, Lopsided Cat. It’s a nice portrait anyway.
And as you can see, it was a lovely day for it. So lovely, in fact, that I spent most of it away from the computer. And I would do it again. Don’t worry; tomorrow’s supposed to be rainy and 20 degrees cooler. I’ll be back inside then.
As well you might be, were you he. I should note that Lopsided Cat is primarily an outdoor cat, but as today marked the first appreciable snowfall of the year, he decided it would be better to wait out the weather inside, and has decided that the new dog was not in fact intent on […]
Look and learn, people. Look and learn.
I mean, no, it’s not a bed made from the entrails of all the rodents he’s disemboweled over the years, but then, what is? Well, except for the rodent entrail bed I made for him last Christmas. But that didn’t last; items like that never do. Until I make him another, this new chair will […]
Because that’s how we roll, Christmas morning. Athena hard at work at Christmas 2010: The Unwrapination. One of Athena’s gifts. Her gifts parted out between geekish and stylish, because, you know. Look at her parents. “Put down that camera and unwrap your presents.” I got a very nice coat with hat and gloves, the […]
A couple of quick notes: First, and of course, many thanks to everyone who passed along their condolences, prayers and good thoughts to us. It’s been a sad couple of days around the Scalzi Compound, and your notes and memories of your own good dogs and other pets have been helpful to read. I’m also […]
Lopsided Cat and Ghlaghghee knew that it would be difficult to talk to Zeus about his addiction to ‘nip. But they never expected Zeus to brazenly pull out the Catnip Sock and “snork up” right in front of them. And as they say on the street, that’s when the shit got real: “Seriously, man, he […]
