Leonardo met a redhead in my friend Tricia! I think he knew there was something special between the two and crawled right into her lap. They made such a great match! As a bonus: Tricia and a ginger bug from the previous day. Is this some sort of cult?

Hello everyone, this is your favorite cat Leonardo again! I’m here to discuss an important issue with you. You may think I have a good life. I know my most recent post was about napping. But let me assure you, solid naps are few and far between. I live in constant fear… constant fear of Joseph and Alyssa. They are abusive. So I guess this blog is my cry for help. Please do something about this. I like to think I am a good cat, but they are awful. Yes, I am usually purring the entire time. And I stick around and rub against their legs after being tortured. But that means nothing. It is Stockholm Syndrome! Save me!

Hello, everyone! This is Leonardo here, Alyssa’s cat. My friend Morn convinced me to try my hand in blogging because he often takes over Sara’s blog and adds valuable insights to cat life. So now I am going to give you a lesson on my favorite activity: napping. I’m appalled at the lack of variety in human sleep cycles. You desperately need to be taught you to do it right. Feel free to take notes. Find the sun. This is a basic cat rule. Windows are a wonderful thing. Don’t be afraid of heights. In the example above, I’ve settled down for a nap on the ledge of the wall overlooking my living room on the lower level.  This photo reinforces another rule: any time something looks comfortable, settle down on it immediately.  With practice, you should look like you’re on the brink of sleep within 10 seconds of an…

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Instagram by now, alternatively known as “Catstagram” because it is sometimes overrun with cat photos. For me it also doubles as “Foodstagram” and “PicturesInMyMirrorstagram.” You might have noticed my blog has been pretty thin the last few months. To tell you the truth, my camera hasn’t gotten much action. I’m thankful I have Instagram to have fun with photos in a more light-hearted manner. It’s a nice supplement since I haven’t been best buddies with my DSLR lately. The three box photos were all taken on the same day. He couldn’t decide which box he loved the most (and there was even a another smaller box further complicating his decision). Second-to-last photos are Leonardo on top of the dryer, which he somehow only recently discovered. No idea what took him so long! And the last photo was taken while we were hiding…

Leonardo has always been interested in the world outside our walls, but actually going outdoors is just too overwhelming. So he spends a lot of his time gazing out windows. This was one of his favorite spots in our apartment in Italy–the big window in the kitchen. It was frequently open to release the kitchen’s heat, so he got to smell all sorts of nature! Plus, he could see into our neighbors’ yards and watch them walk in and out of their houses. Before buying our house here in Fort Worth, we stayed in a hotel for a few weeks. Our room was right by the front entrance, and I often came home to find him staring right out this window. I’m sure all the hotel occupants knew of him! Now he has a quite different view out the back window. Although definitely not friends, they like to play together…
