Bathtime

I was sitting in the living room watching television last night, and looked over at the sliding glass door that opens onto the backyard, and noticed Pyewacket sitting there intently watching something. I got up to see what she was looking at, and saw a little chipmunk sitting on the patio. I grabbed my camera and got one picture of him before he scampered away.


We see chipmunks at my mom's occasionally, but I've never seen one here. I suppose seeing one means that there's a whole family somewhere. I know they can be destructive, but they're sure cute.

When I was downloading the chipmunk picture from the camera, I noticed a series of videos that I took of the kitties one morning, and I don't think I ever posted here. They're of Pyewacket giving Dinah a very thorough bath one Sunday morning. Here's one snippet:

I love how Pye holds Dinah down with her paw, and how Dinah submits so quietly. Dinah always initiates it, Pyewacket never does, and Pye is always the one to do the washing. I just think the dynamics are interesting.

And this is what inevitably happens at the end of one of these baths:

How funny! My two cats, Mulder and Scully, that look *exactly* like your two, down to the colors, have the exact same dynamic, and it always ends the same way. Your two cats have doppelgangers in Arlington, Virginia. :)

My two sisters, Gabby and Livia, do the same comfort-devolving-into-a-little-light-play thing with each other, but they are more reciprocal with initiating it. I think I've finally figured out that some little hiss/growl/swat behaviors are simply Cat for "OK, stop now." No big thang! :-)
