Daphne and Chloe Are Alive and Well and Living in Boston

leave a comment »

It has been ages since we catblogged, but that is mere negligence on our part. Daphne and Chloe are well and enjoying life in Boston. Of course, it is true that Chloe has developed an eating disorder, and now needs to be fed on a schedule, but we’re confident that has nothing to do with the pace of city life. They have both settled into comfortable routines although it is also true that Daphne now demands trout for breakfast with unseemly regularity. They both remain a bit high-strung, but there has been a diminution in the level of violence. Greater age and wisdom no doubt. Well, age, in any event. Here they are:

Friday Cats

Chloe can be particular about the grooming habits of others, often making sure that one is fully scrubbed. Sometimes, she conducts snap inspections after one gets out of the shower. Here, she’s decided that Daphne needs a little help behind the ears.

Daphne doesn’t mind.

Slow Cat Week

leave a comment »

It’s been a slow cat week here at Villa MartiniPundit. Daphne is asleep:

And Chloe indulges in the peculiar Maine Coon habit of bathing. This is voluntary folks:

So we thought we’d update you on the progress of the guest kittens, Lymond, Phillipa, and Sybilla, as some pictures were thoughtfully sent along. As you can see, they’re growing, but size is not yet a problem:

Meanwhile, Phillipa, at least, has decided that there are no boundaries, even if the seating preference is odd:

And they’ve discovered that some things on TV are actually worth watching:

We don’t get the aquarium channel in these parts, but I’m sure Daphne and Chloe have a call in to the local cable provider …

Daphne at One

leave a comment »

Daphne is shortly a year old now, and spends a lot of her time under things. She does, however, occasionally get on top:

And, from time to time, she deigns to be sociable:

But of course, the horrific violence continues unabated:

Cool City Cats

leave a comment »

May was unseasonably cool here in Massachusetts, hovering in the low 40s for most of the month and raining much of the time. This Daphne and Chloe took in stride, although it did cut down some on their morning bird-watching rituals. However, with June has come heat, and it’s been in the 90s for much of the last week. This, they did not take to well as it appears that no one actually told them it could get this hot or that this part of the country has 50 degree shifts in a matter of days as part of the normal weather pattern. Daphne has spent most of her time thus finding cool stretches of hardwood to spread out on:

This has caused her to spend more time than is typical about my desk, and I’ve had to avoid rolling over her with a chair a couple of times. That, I’m sure, she would take to most poorly. Meanwhile, Chloe has found her own solution lounging on a plastic bin that’s out temporarily:

We’re not sure if it’s cooler on top of that, or she just enjoys the novelty. But she’s a cat, and so multi-tasking while not actually doing anything comes naturally to her.

Guest Cats

leave a comment »

A good friend recently acquired some kittens. He says they only intended to get two, but I count three in the pictures. They are a quite adorable set of littermates. This is Phillipa and Lymond:

And this is Sybilla:

Current Lord of the Manor Tristan apparently alternates between “glowering” and “apoplectic.” I suspect he’ll come around – three such hotties will no doubt melt the old curmudgeon’s heart. Daphne and Chloe, however, could not be reached for comment.
