One by one they piled up to watch TRTR.
This is as many as I've ever captured on camera watching out the window.

(Center) The Red Tree Rodent [TRTR]*
(Front Row: L-R) Nick, Owen, Penny, Yukon
(Back Row: L-R) Angus, Wizard, Snafu
BJ was snoozing elsewhere??

*We can't say the word "Squirrel" because the dogs know that word and they really, really love it.

A Snafu Friday


Here is Snafu playing fetch in live action!

I love the way he runs with his big paws :).

If you can't see the video here, try YouTube here.

DP bought Snafu a fancy new Holly Leaf Collar for Christmas!

So now he has three bells a ringing!

Annual First Snow Pictures

Our first snow was on Black Friday and did not amount to very much at all.

Penny and Snafu enjoyed a brief romp.

And BJ is an old pro at snow.

Penny explored a bit then came back inside after BJ.
She decided that watching from the inside was a lot warmer.

Snafu hung out for a little while longer.

When I came back to check on him a few minutes later, he was ready to come inside and I captured that on video.
If you listen hard, you might be able to hear his happy chirp as he leaps up the ladder.

If you can't play the video here, try YouTube HERE.

Mancat in Flight

Nick sailing over one of our many baby gates that separate our dogs.
It looks like Nick's back feet are pushing off the red chair but he is already well past the chair, the gate and into the kitchen area.
He is our best jumper and never touches the gate when in flight.
What a mancat!

Six on a bed - Oh, my head!

Do you see Penny hiding under the blanket in front of Angus?

This picture was taken before Snafu was banned from the bedroom for continously peeing/marking.

Angus Outside and In

 This is one of Angus's favorite places to hang out.

It's the entrance door (window) to their cat enclosure outside.

He likes to know he can get back inside the house at a moments notice...
which would be when the dogs start barking for any particular reason.

He is acutally sitting on the top step of a step ladder.

This is the view from outside.
Sometimes, like in this photo, he blocks the window so other kitties can't get through (here it is BJ just below him waiting).

Lately it has been too cold in the mornings to go right outside,
so Angus sits on the inside to look out.

Hi Angus!

The Many Faces of Angus:

Such a comedian...

Two Girls

Just a couple of girls lounging around...

~Lisa Co9T

(Added later) P.S. Buzz is one of our three Terriers. She is a Jack Russell Terrier not often pictured on Co9T blog because she doesn't usually get along with the kitties. She has really, really mellowed out in her senior years (she is 10 now).
