It seems like an odd pairing, but when we go outside, Izaak and Angel pair up together.
It’s actually pretty adorable, because they generally weigh almost exactly the same, around 3.4kg (7.5lbs), which makes them roughly the same size. Alfred and Dashiell are the big boys, and Lorelai is our tiny little girl.
You can see how much bigger Dash is compared to the two of them.
But look how cute this is! They’re almost holding tails!
Here’s a video of the two of them. It’s accidentally slow motion, but you can see how they make a sweet, if strange, couple.
I’m always amused at how popular napping spots go in and out of style amongst our cats. As an example, for months, nobody regularly slept on this cushion at Björn’s end of the sofa.
Then Lorelai adopted it and naps there every evening. She’s so cute when she does that, curled up in a tight little ball.
But what’s even funnier is, during the day, when Rory naps, it’s in other places nowhere near that corner. During the day, that’s Angel’s napping spot! I’ve read that cats timeshare places in the house, and apparently, our cats are big believers in that!
The other day, we were watching YouTube videos on the television, and I wanted to show Björn the video of Lorelai stalking the geese, which he hadn’t seen yet.
After that, YouTube autoplayed the next video, which was the one of Izaak sitting on top of Dashiell.
Dash was intensely interested in seeing him and his buddy on TV. And then the cutest thing happened.
He reached his paw out and touched Zak! It was so sweet, so tentative…but he definitely recognised his friend.
Then a different video autoplayed, one of Angel and Zak outside. And Dash patted Zak’s image again! I have never seen a cat do this before. I have seen them play with images on screen, but not recognise another cat that they know.
I made a little video of him…but he went behind the screen looking for the cats. I did finally capture him patting Zak.
It started with Alfred.
He’s the first one who ran towards the lake.
But Lorelai took it to a whole other level.
She decided to HUNT the geese. Who probably outweigh her. Here’s a video of Freddy, but mainly Rory, stalking the geese.
The first time Alfred and Bruno met, it got a little…tense. But since Lorelai has befriended him, Freddy’s been cutting Bruno a bit of a break.
But he’s still not really sure about this canine.
…And, there it is…
Look at Freddy, getting his fierce on.
Bruno’s used to being put in his place by cats…after all, he was raised by Markis…so, yeah.
Yesterday, Alfred and I went to the veterinarian to see how his lungs look after pneumonia.
As I have said before, it’s a two-bus, almost hour long bus trip from our house to the vet. And we had lots of hang time waiting for the transfers.
This is at Resecentrum. I love this shot.
When we had a bus transfer wait of more than ten minutes, I let Freddy out of his carrier.
But at the vet we got good news: Freddy’s lungs are completely clear.
Not only are his lungs clear, it also looks like he doesn’t have asthma. So that’s great!
Much like Jacoby, Freddy loves to sing the song of his people when he’s outside.
This IS an Airport, Please Announce Your Departure: Aeroplane Ear Posting.
After the vet visit, we stopped off a DjurMagazinet to stock up om raw chicken necks and raw meatballs.
Of course, Freddy helped me pick out the raw food I bought.
Of course, Freddy made friends when we were on line for the cash.
That’s Freddy’s superpower: making friends wherever he goes.
