I had to insult Gus’ dignity a little bit today by giving him another wipe bath. It does seem to help with the fur, degreasing it somewhat and making it less clumpy. He doesn’t like the process much, though. He was also not thrilled that Julius was watching, partially concealed behind a cardboard box.
Julie was his usual squinting self when it was his turn for pictures.
He became increasingly riled up by the camera strap. Look at the claws there. In the end I gave up on pictures and just played with him some…but with a long stick. He sometimes forgets about those claws.
“come outside” – this morning I saw this as a search hit that led someone here. I did the same search myself and was surprised to see Calla’s pretty picture from a few days ago high up in the image searches…about a third of the way down the list, after a lot of images from some BBC show. Now, I knew that Gus is the number 1 Google image for “shaved tuxedo cat“, but that picture has had a long time to percolate up.
I have been kind of surprised to see a few of my pictures showing up in Google images when looking for other things. I forgot to write down those searches.
Julius, again, decided to be a little unhelpful by getting just outside Calla’s swatting range while I tried to take some pictures. Even though he doesn’t ever do anything, it makes her a little off-balance when he does this.
I don’t think he does it on purpose, he’s just doing his thing without much noticing how the other cats react to it.
