    He's an a-hole, but he's our a-hole and we (mostly) love him.

    Stewie likely dropped a deuce in that pea gravel moments before I took this shot. Because... well, that's what Stewie do.

    At 17 years old, ol' fatboy is a svelte 18 pounds--down from a high of 21 a year ago--and doesn't move as quickly as he used to. Like his dad (me), he has arthritis. We give him a monthly injection of Adequan which he doesn't seem to mind at all and does seem to help with his aches and pains.

    He used to routinely bring us gifts (half dead mice), but hasn't done that in years. He used to be 50/50 inside/outside cat, and loved staying out all night. He's mostly indoors now, generally venturing out only when mom or dad are in the backyard.

    Stewart sleeps 22.5 hours a day. The other hour and a half he eats, complains, whines for more food, purrs loudly. and poops.

    That's the life of Stewie.

    I'm lovin' Stewie's lion cut! He's got a lot in common with my boy Hoss. Hoss is also 17 and was a formidable hunter in his younger days, although he specialized in frogs since we live on a small lake. In a truly "believe it or not" moment, we once saw him cavorting with a family of otters in the shallows! Both the otters and Hoss seemed to be really enjoying themselves. It was one of the most astounding animal interactions I've ever seen.

    Hoss also has become a mostly indoor resident in recent years, and has had some serious health issues, but is still telling me and the mommacat what to do. We've come to treasure every day that we get to spend with the big guy. Enjoy your precious time with Stewie, and may you and he have many, many more years to spend together!

    This is a photo of Hoss from about 5 years ago:

    What's with all the cat-grooming? Is that a new trend?

    Ahh, it's only when you put things down like this that you can see the changes the years have wrought. Our Melbourne is like Stewie. Now he goes out and stays in our yard or the neighbours. He's over 17 and we've had him since he was teeny-tiny. A short-hair, so no lion cuts are necessary. Your Stewie, and others in the thread, are wonderful creatures and I'm sure, wonderful companions. We've lost a lot of cats over the years, and I fear Mel is up next, but till then we let him "eats, complains, whines for more food, purrs loudly. and poops." They're all the same... :)

    What's better than cargo shorts? Cargos and a cat.

    Quarantine, Diesel style- so named for his rumbling, rattling, clattering purr, just like a micro Cummins diesel. 20190816_201252.jpg

    His hair is fairly long. Every Summer for past 8-10 years weve done this. Much cooler. Plus he seems to like it (seriously).

    OK, now you’ve done it ...

    C05F8E84-1B62-43FA-9315-4D9295DC4DB0.jpeg

    Meet our newest master, Liquid Turtle the Parts Kitty (the Turd)... five months old. She joins Ofelia die Hexen Katze (Ofie), a black long-haired 10-year-old we just adopted, and Silent Lucy Lu Catnoodle (LuLu), who we got about a year ago to be friends with 16-year-old Little Ramona Pony (Pony), who died at the beginning of C-19 fest ... this brings us back up to three, after last summer’s death of Sleepy Lily Fireball (the Bit) at 10 from kidney disease ...

    Nutz offspring (now adults, living with us ... cuz ... ) insisted we always have three cats, so ...

    ... three ...
