The Long And Long Of It

This morning we did another little persuasion bribing session.  As I told Ivy last post, I did succeed in getting the boys where I wanted them — Bugs in Long Bed and Fang in Short Bed — for about 1.5 minutes.  They then both relocated immediately, into the living room — wherever.  Just as long as it was not where I wanted them to be.

Later, them being gone again from the living room, I tiptoed back into the bedroom, to see what they were up to.  Hoping against hope.

I found Bugs in Long Bed — and Fang in Long Bed.

Again Fang ruined the moment by jumping up wanting Eternal-Delight Shoelace.  Or something else equally urgent.  I did manage to snap off this quick one of Fang on his way out, before it was too late altogether.

I love that look on Bugsy’s face.  He is just the sweetest cat.  Now patient and long-suffering, poor boy.

I think Fangie might be in training to be a hairdresser.  No.  Stylist, remembering Bugsy’s burgeoning film career.  Fangie is as obsessive about grooming Bugs as he is about Eternal-Delight Shoelace.  Also you can see — he’s a little — messy.  Or — do you think the bits and bobs Fang leaves in Bugs’s fur are an Artisanal Fashion Statement?  Kind of like Urban Grunge?  I am so extremely cool and wealthy I don’t need to worry about grooming I am as fabulous as I can possibly be no matter what?

You decide.

Later the scene shifted back into the living room.  Here’s Fang making another statement:

Bugs gives as good as he gets.  It’s the principle of the thing.


Love the parallel discomfited-ears in this next one.

You know what?  If you want it so bad, you can * have * it.  I don’t care.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    I am about 50/50 on wanting to be a multicat household!! I dunno I guess we are part way there with Tigger visiting nearly every day. We get the parallel discomforted ears on a regular basis lol. Bugsy will change with fame. Mark my words!!! 😉

      Well, CAT, ya know it’s been quite a project, to become multicat — I totally get the reservations! I think I still have them! (not really) As for Bugsy’s transition into media frenzy, I am thinking of ways to protect him. Like Princess Diana, yup, that’s me. Protecting her little boys. [snort] Princess Diana indeed. Who’s got the swelled head? Who? Who?

  4. Seems like they act like brothers, a love hate relationship, MOL! Personally I’m thrilled to see them sitting by each other all the time, that says a lot to me. I still can’t get my two together for anything. Other than hiding from strangers, and then only grudgingly, the goobers.

    • nadbugs says:

      Oh for pete’s sake. Sorry! I think if Fang were a little less goofy, it’d be like that over here, too. If Bugsy had his druthers, I’m pretty sure that’s the way things would be. But Fang is always all “Sprawl! Sprawl! Sprawl all over you! You don’t want me sprawling all over you? Well then! Let’s play Eternal Shoelace! Let me bite your ankles! Come on! Come on!” Oy.

      • Oldcat says:

        You might be surprised if Fang did stop chasing. Bugs might swtich to ‘accidentally’ flopping down within sprawling range a time or two.

        Gus has this thing of licking Julie’s head then biting and then they scuffle some. I’ve caught Julie flopping down nearby and lowering his head to get him to start a time or two.

    Oh, my! I was mentioned in the post and it took me all this time to see it? What a shame!
    I now feel as famous as Bugsy is starting to be — it might go up to my head! LOL
    Anyways, they look adorable and just like real brothers. Bugsy does sound like a saint… hee hee…

  6. Double purring from the boys, YES!

  7. Yes, to double purring! A few more and it’ll be a symphony.

  8. littlemiao says:

    Nose bops! They encourage whisker growth. (At least that’s my theory, because Sprocket gets nose-bopped so frequently for his transgressions and his whiskers are getting insanely long).

    A purr duet would be sublime. A purr symphony would be transcendental.
