Occasionally Henry gets all squinty in one of his eyes. I’ve taken him to the vet and he doesn’t have a scratch on the cornea or anything. I think sometimes he just gets a piece of fur in his eye that I can’t seem to get out. The other day it happened again, and he looked so much like a little pirate cat winking at me, that I decided to make him an eye patch.
If I’m out of town for more than 24 hours, my mom likes to have my cat, Henry, over for a visit. Last weekend (Canada Day long weekend) I went out of town so my mom had Henry over. My sister is also out of town so she’s currently taking care of my sister’s cat, Sasafrass, too. A few weekends ago the cats were napping and had swapped blankets; Henry was on Sasafrass’ and Sasafrass was on Henry’s blanket pad. I cooed and melted and couldn’t believe mom hadn’t snapped a picture. So last weekend, mom made sure to take Continue Reading »
Henry is a simple cat; he likes crumpled paper, plastic bags, and cardboard boxes. I usually have one for him that’s an appropriate size, but when I finished unpacking his cat food the other week, he immediately settled in. I find the standard 11 x 17 -ish boxes to be a tad small, so I usually save a sodapop flat from Costco for him. P.S. No, Henry doesn’t have a complex about his weight. He’s happy, healthy, and living on the larger side of life. Happy Whiskers on Wednesday!
CW sent me some photos of his mum’s cats chilling out at the house. Happy Whiskers on Wednesday!! This is Minstrel. I prefer to call him Poofa because I don’t think his name suits him. He’s the newest edition to the family. This is Charlie. When he gets really happy, he starts to kneed and puts his mouth really close to you and drools a little. This is my favourite photo of the bunch. Flossy is a gorgeous calico and very fiesty.
Last week I was home sick with a bit of a stomach bug. Henry made sure to take good care of me and give me lots of snuggles. Please excuse the craptastic photos as I was using PhotoBooth on my Macbook. Also, no comments on how craptastic I look… it was a sick day afterall.
Henry loves watching the outdoors. He’s not suited to be outdoors unattended, so I often boost him onto the windowsill in my bedroom. At my parents’ house, he used to sit for hours in my office chair rolled up to the window. Now he doesn’t seem to remember that he can go look out the window, he just has to jump. I’m planning to get some of that window-tint stuff (like cars have) so that I can leave my blinds open while I’m at work. Maybe then he’ll hang out there more often. Safely behind the screen. No he isn’t Continue Reading »
Henry isn’t up for Whiskers on Wednesday, so his cousin Sasafrass (my sister’s cat) is stepping in. At family dinner last Sunday my sister had her dressed in a lovely ruffle. Sasafrass absolutely loved her ruffle. It was a soft satin ribbon pinned with a safety pin. She has a hard time sitting still when there is so much excitement going on and I only got these photos because she was waiting for a treat (raw chicken!). P.S. Henry is fine… but he had a vet visit today which stresses him out. He starts breathing hard, panting, and his heart Continue Reading »
We cats must inspect everything that enters our domain. We must approve of it before it is allowed to stay. Recently, mommy brought home these weirdo green things. They don’t taste as good as that bamboo-y stuff at mommy’s mom’s house…. don’t worry, I tried it. I guess they can stick around. All these silly things do is sit there anyway. They’re no fun. kthnxbai ~ Love Henry P.S. The plants are here to stay. I went to Home Depot Garden Centre and asked for plants that needed either a.) no sunlight or b.) minimal sunlight. The smaller plant is Continue Reading »
