I hope everyone has a lovely Caturday! Ours is low-key, as usual, with me doing schoolwork and Aaron working on machinery projects. The cats are currently snoozing.
May you all have a most happy new year!
As you can see, Charlie and Mau will start 2019 with a snooze in Aaron’s sock bin.
Garrus found a perch on Aaron’s freshly folded shirt. The boys have been exploring the clothes rack lately. So much climbing!
Mostly snuzzling (snoozing + snuggling – or would that be snoozling?) though. So much zzz.
Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season with their loved ones and fur people!
Obviously Charlie, Garrus, and Mau are enjoying a yuletide nap…
Having three cats – all boys, with very different personalities – is a fun lesson in cat ownership. I’ve noticed that all three regularly play by themselves and with each other. It’s a common occurrence for a scamper session to start before we wake up in the morning and continue during breakfast. Another preferred time to bat toys around and tell everyone about it is right when we’re going to bed. Charlie in particular likes to warble when he plays – I’ve been working on getting video and audio of it so I can share it with you here on Purry Home Companion.
Hooray the boys are getting along! Apparently Charlie and Garrus are starting to see Mau as belonging to their social group.
Garrus and Mau chill on the ottoman.
“Hi Mom. I really want the blue blanket for myself but Charlie won’t move. Maybe we can snuggle instead.” ~Mau
They both fit!
Charlie and Mau shared the cat tree! Charlie got his spot back!

Garrus remains unconcerned.
We interrupt to your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this important news bulletin:
We are the opposite of concerned. You may now resume your previous activities.
I love catching a snuggle in progress. More often than not, Charlie uses Garrus as a pillow. Garrus never seems to mind.
They have no problem sharing the extra-comfy blue elephant pillow.
Do you have pets that love each other? How do they show their affection for one another? Please share in the comments!
Garrus and Charlie have lazing about down pat.
Mau prefers loafing in a box.
On a daily basis, my house becomes a vortex of inaction. Sleeping cats are SO CUTE!
Do you agree? Are your cats extra cute when sleeping? Where do they like to sleep or lounge? Share in the comments!
Several times a week, Aaron and I find a snuggle in progress. Sometimes Charlie and Garrus sleep next to one another while at other times, they snooze in a yin-yang circle or fallen dominoes. Frequently Charlie uses Garrus as a pillow, although Garrus does not seem to mind.
Earlier Aaron remarked, “You should come check out this snuggle.” In our house, snuggles are very serious business so I had to investigate. When I did, I laughed and had to snap a photo.
We don’t think Garrus was consulted before Charlie flopped on him. Nevertheless they slept like this for a while.
This was a couple of hours later. If you look closely, you can nearly see the z’s floating off of them.
It’s strange to come home and not find Boudicca there. I particularly miss her when it would normally be our regularly scheduled lap time in the evening. I love Garrus and Charlie dearly but they are not yet lap cats. We’re working on that and probably will be for some time. With Boudicca I was relatively spoiled, since she was by nature a perfectly affectionate lap cat.
Boudicca’s absence is also noted in her pink bed in the master bedroom and her box-bed in my office. She used to lounge on the window seat too, chiefly to birdwatch, receive adoration, be brushed, sunbathe, and doze contentedly. She was a most benevolent office supurrvisor.
Charlie and Garrus have not taken up the mantle of office supurrvisor or designated reading buddy. My heart nevertheless shone with love and happiness when they slept on the window seat for four hours this morning.
Typically Charlie will come for brief visits, hang out on the windowsill, look outside, and, of course, receive rubs. I was most pleasantly surprised and pleased when Garrus sauntered into my office for an extended visit.
Garrus had investigated Boudicca’s empty bed before but this afternoon was the first time I had seen him get in it.
They look rather smug, don’t they?
