Throw Back Thursday.
I happened upon these pictures the other day (and if you read the previous years’ entries, you probably saw them yesterday in 2012’s post), and I just love them so very, very much.
That’s Tony Rocky Horror Pickle showing his brother, Joe, just who the boss was.
If you’d like to see a recent picture of the brothers, who were adopted together, you can see them at the unofficial Challenger’s House page, here. Joe is now Bodhi, and Tony RH is now Toothless (named after Toothless in How to Train your Dragon). They look like some seriously happy boys!
The first thing I do when I roll out of bed in the morning is take a shower. Usually Dennis decides it’s time for me to get up, and he jumps up on the bed and rolls around on his back until I pet him. Then, when he has decided that the pettin’ is done, he grabs my arm and gently bunny kicks me. Then I get up and head for the bathroom. I knew that some of the cats wait for me outside the bathroom – I can always see a tail sticking under the door – but I didn’t know just how many of them sat there and waited for me.
Fred took this picture yesterday morning.
That’s Sugarbutt (left) and Stefan at the bottom of the picture. Then Dennis, sitting up against the door, and next to him Jake. Then Corbie near the doorway to the front room, and Tommy actually laying in the doorway to the front room.
They wait for me there because the first thing I do after leaving the bathroom, is head to the kitchen for their morning snack of canned food. I guess they’re STARVIN’. If I take too long in the bathroom, one of them (I’m not sure who, but I suspect Dennis or Jake – possibly both) will bang on the door.
