I’ve decided to call the boys Earl Grey (left) and Duke Fido (right).
they have their favourite perches around the house. Fido likes to sit under the dining table with one leg in the air, while Grey likes to sit on top of the back of the couch, hidden behind the flapping curtain. that was until Bryan decided to throw out the old couch and replace it with a sofabed. he locked both cats in the kitchen while he did a massive move of the furniture, mopped the floors and opened the windows to air the room. the cats were let out and they immediately ran to their spots. the dining table was still there but the couch wasn’t anymore. according to Bryan, Grey almost slipped on the wet floor and skidded to a stop when he realised his couch was missing. he looked at the empty spot with grand confusion before looking back at Bryan with this WTF?! expression.
but cats adapt really quickly. now Fido likes his perch on top of a stack of boxes while Grey has discovered the little space under the sofa bed. we didn’t know that was his new hiding spot until we tried to find him. we could see Fido gazing at us from his perch not telling us anything when I asked him if he knew where Grey was, but Grey was nowhere to be found. we had to use a packet of wet cat food to lure Grey out and zoop! he came running out from under the sofa bed. it’s always good to know where the cats are, you don’t want one of them suddenly swiping their claws at your innocent ankles.
when the sofa bed was first set up, Grey was looking down from one of the shelves while Fido kaypoed around the sofa bed. Grey likes to pretend nothing frazzles him but I bet he was itching with curiosity.
testing if it could hold his weight.
i came out from the kitchen to grab a roll of toilet paper and despite Bryan’s earlier warning of the wet floors, i managed to slip, did a couple of dry arm swimming motions before catching my balance with one leg stretched out behind me and the other pressed against a table that caught me in time. Fido had been standing near that spot and when i did that funny arm swimming thing, he freaked and dashed quickly away before stopping to look at me wide-eyed. Grey was in the kitchen and caught me in action so he was looking back at me a little wide eyed too. the both of them had the OMGWTFFFFF WHAT IS THIS HUMAN DOING!??!?? expression and imagining what was going on in their minds cracked me up so badly i couldn’t stop laughing to myself. that probably worried them a little more.
