Bubbie and Yellowstone

Last night our local PBS station aired a show about Yellowstone National Park in the winter. I missed the first part of it, and was actually thinking about turning it off to go to bed early when something about it caught Bubbie's attention. He sat spellbound for about 15-20 minutes. He looked away for a second or two a couple times, but the rest was spent just as you see him here. When the show was finished, he got down.

The one picture bottom-center is just one of him on the back of my chair. Look at his poor little nose. It is gradually looking just a tad bit better and he is back to his normal self of just looking for something to get into part of the time. Last night he was tackling Shelby, trying to hide under a box--one of those folded ones you get for an item of clothing. You know the size--about 10 inches by 12 or 14 inches. He thinks if his head is hid, that you cannot see him.

It is sure good to see him acting normal...I told Roger and Rachel that it is going to be a desperate situation before I leave an animal overnight at the vets. The vet is a good vet, but it took Bubbie so long to trust us again. He has just the past week or so started coming and getting in bed with us. He still doesn't sit beside us as much as he used to, but he does occasionally.

Speaking of bed, remember Puss Puss aka The Princess and Cougar. The little one is the Princess. She now has the habit of waiting for me to come to bed, and then she has to get under the covers between Roger and me for 30 - 45 minutes, sometimes more than once a night, but always when I first go to bed. And she purrs so contentedly.
And Cougar has the habit of wanting out about 5:00 in the morning...he won't leave the mini-blinds alone in our room. Just anything to wake me up.

How cute! I wonder what the attraction was in the show? We have a kitty that puts us to bed at night, too. She waits for me to come upstairs and as soon as I'm in bed, she climbs up and lays on me for about 15 minutes and has to be petted and stroked. Then she goes away to her own bed.

These babies are cute!

It's late and I'm really behind. Leaving tomorrow to visit baby Lily so I wanted to wish you and Roger a Merry Christmas and Blessings for the New Year!
I'll be back to visit before you know it.

Cats are fun and smart. And even though they sometimes pretend they don't care ot really is pretend. They don't don't like it when we leave them for a few days, do they?

Merry Christmas, Rose!

Cute cats Rose. Amazing the things they will do.

PBS has good programs, so obviously Bubbie is a fan. It sounds as if your babies keep you comfortable and entertained.

Fine kitty pictures and comment showing once again how unique cats are in their behavior. Very cute shot of the two.

Awww - They're so pretty! That reminds me of Lil Man. Every morning, Lil Man jumps up on me in bed & paws at my face to wake me up. It's just so cuuute that I can't scold him to make him stop.
Be Careful Over The Holidays, GOD Bless, & Merry Christmas!!!

So cute! We (myself and the Gang of Four) watched that show too, although nothing seemed to rouse them this time. Flash barely cocked an ear at the wolf howl, but that was about it. Not enough "rustling noises" in this ssshow...
