Perfect napping spot

Mom turned on the little space heater and Maggie wasted no time finding a cozy spot right in front of the path of the heat. It's no fireplace, but it's a good second.

Lazy Sunday

We took the"extra" hour from Daylight Saving Time to lay around with Mom and Dad and enjoy a lazy Sunday. The weather was perfect to have the window open and Josie snuggled up against Dad for some quality time. 

I've been in the sink a lot recently and had developed some knots on my belly. I was super patient as Mom and Dad sheared them off my belly. It feels so much better. I also allowed Mom to clean my ears. Even though I seemed annoyed by having a Q-tip in my ear, I was also purring the whole time.

Maggie has been doing well since her most recent belly issues. We think it is stress colitis and Mom is looking at a diffuser to help with anxiety when Mom and Dad are away. Hopefully that will work.

Huggy Bear got to have some sour cream and queso today. Mom and Dad shared some of their Mexican, but not the spicy stuff.

Tuckered out

Poor little Maggie had to go to the vet today. She's been sick again, vomiting and diarrhea, like back in the summer. She was by the house alarm when it accidentally went off and she's been dealing with stress colitis since. She's gone from 7.4 pounds to 5.8. So she got subcutaneous fluids and an antibiotic. Her disposition has been like normal, full of pep and love. This treatment worked last time, so here's hoping it works again. She seems better already.

Snuggling with Mom

Mom and Dad were out of town this weekend doing a bike ride with the MS Society (Bike MS Breakaway to the Beach). They got back Monday around noon, and the ac was acting up, so Mom was stuck at home today waiting on the repairman. That means that I got to do a lot of this:

Jasper snuggles

It is very important when your people come home to snuggle up with them and make sure they don't go anywhere again soon.

Guilt trip

Dad was trying to trim Huggy Bear's "thumb" claw because it was getting really long, and it was hard to get to, and Dad trimmed it shorter than he meant to. Mom and Dad feel terrible. It didn't bleed, but they know what it's like when you trim your own nails too short. So he's going to get a little extra spoiled the next few days.

Happy birthday to Josie and Huggy Bear

So, I'm a bad brother and missed my usual birthday post for Josie and Huggy Bear. They turned 13 on September 15. Tonight they are both on Mom and Dad's bed while the sheets are in the dryer. Of course the best time to lay on the bed is when there are no sheets. Not only does it make for a bad picture but it also puts our cat hair on the actual mattress and not the sheets. But it's not often that they are both in the same picture so this is the picture for the post. 

Anyhow, we're all doing well. We are fortunate to be in our teens and healthy like we are. These two are so sweet. I'm fortunate that they came into my life. They really taught me how to be a cat. It sounds funny, but they taught me how to cuddle and eat treats. I'm a much better cat because of them.

Now it's time for some stinky goodness...

Rare sight

All four of us in bed with Mom and Dad to watch Orphan Black. This never happens.
