Last night, while attempting to pet Jasper as he demanded without having my arm closer than he allowed it, I was struck with a great revelation: Lovecraft's portrayal of the Elder Things as five-sided, pseudo-vegetable, barrels concealed their true forms. Both Jasper and Una frequently demand fusses while simultaneously complaining should I move my body … Continue reading Anent The Most Lively Fuzziness
Greetings anaclowderian thumbbearers. As previously mentioned, Jasper and Una have undertaken a throughout test and optimisation of the inside of the house. However, in the year since we moved they have also improved the outside of the house. For example, while the rainproof sitting space next to the back door is acceptable, the scrunchly cushion … Continue reading Catio Furniture
I'm still settling into our new house, but my moments of joy have become more nuanced and abstruse. It's been—depending on which definition one uses—almost exactly a month since we moved house; and, as my wife and I devoted a lot of time immediately after moving to unpacking everything and getting things into sensible places, … Continue reading Deep Joy
My wife and I finished arranging the furniture in the attic room over the weekend, so the new house is—for a reasonable granularity—tidy. As we now have significantly more floor space, Jasper has taken it upon himself to test all the carpets to make sure they are suitably roll-upon-able. Being a diligent soul, he's also … Continue reading House Hunting
Last week, my wife and I moved house; so we now own our own property. Today, I emptied the last of the many removals boxes and finished assembling my PC. The cats are of course horrified and curious simultaneously. They are too flighty for actual photos, but here's a representation of their reaction: Given the … Continue reading Davetopia Physically Manifests
To celebrate the anniversary of Jasper and Una moving in, here's a photograph of Jasper demonstrating his administration skills. Skilled readers will note that he is not wearing a hat.
Jaspar Fuzzy-Breeks eased himself along the tunnel. Framed in the entrance, Lágr Rope-Bearer sat oblivious. The ground schuffed beneath Jasper’s feet, but Lágr seemed not to hear. Almost at the tunnel’s mouth, Jaspar paused. Everything was still. He eased his haunches and leapt. His paws wrapped around Lágr’s throat. They rolled, each on top then … Continue reading A Mighty Tale
Una the Deep Miaowing sat upon the highest of high spots in Ut-Garden. Fugl Bloody-Shirt’s raids became more common by the day. She must prepare herself. Legs drawn up, she wrapped herself in her tail. She had lain in wait. She had left and then returned hoping to catch him glutted with spoils. Yet each … Continue reading Feud
Following Jasper's triumphant participation in Tummy Rub Tuesday on Katzenworld, Una claims she is even cuter*. As she is also less prone to staying still, it's hard to provide photographs for comparison. However, I did find this: Not sure whether either of them is less cute than the other; however, she's stopped pestering me so … Continue reading Always Wear Your Seatbelt
To celebrate another year of service to the little fuzzy gods, here's a picture of them claiming the sofa.
