Bedtime potty and treats:
All I have to do is yell treats and all three come running, and Steve bitches up a storm. Normally, they are all at my feet, but Rosie is a JRT and JUST FUCKING KNOWS I AM TRYING TO TAKE A PICTURE, but since I DID NOT ASK PERMISSION, she runs and hides every time I grab the iPhone or camera. It was all I could do to get her into this picture. So sick and tired of being outsmarted by my pets.
Here is Steve with Lily post-treat watching some boob tube with me:
Technically, this is pre-treat, but they are doing the same thing post-treat, and I left the camera in the other room. Such good pets. Even god damned Rosie.
Thanks for ending my week with those beautiful pix. Steve fits right in.
All three of them in one frame! Lily looks so different from that scared little thing you adopted. Sitting on your lap with Steve! Yay!
Makes me happy, thank you.
Do you have pink carpets?
Aww, such nice pictures. Looks like everyone has accepted Steve into the family-just great!
May I suggest some interior design therapy? Your pad looks straight out of Levitz, circa 1985.
Nice to see the piglets; now if you can just get a decent camera. Maybe classes on it’s use as well.

Those pics are cute overload. Flat out adorable.
He’s single, give him a break. Bacheloritis can lead to really bad things but at least it is a curable disease. :)
Now that’s what I am talking about, Dr. Doolittle! We loves seeing all the pets in a single pic!
In that second picture Steve is like, “Dude, seriously, we’re going to watch this garbage?” A month ago he was on the street, now he’s a TV critic.
Steve’s whiskers are magnificent.
I think all the photo problems will be solved when his house is wired for electricity. Candlelight is a bitch.
I love how Lily is in first position.

Happy family. This is good. Spoil each other rotten, okay?
@Steeplejack: True, it is in West ‘By God’ Virginia.
Aww. You are a fortunate man, Cole.
‘Treats’ used to be the absolute favorite word in my house until I got new cat Edward. He doesn’t associate the word with anything, although he knows by my actions that food is about to be served. My old cat Halley used to love the word, but she doesn’t want to be anywhere near Edward so she doesn’t come into the kitchen when I say ‘treats!’. I kind of miss the way the house would get happier just by saying the word.
Question: has all the hair come back on Steve’s back?
Okay, on the left, is that Rosie? If so, which end is which.
Have been quite sick, but feel that I am one the mend.
First picture: Steve the cat is on the left, Lily in the center, Rosie the Jack Russell terrorist in the upper right corner.
Second picture: Steve the cat on the left, Lily on the right.
Is that a heater thingy? It’s August. If it’s an air cleaner you can just open the windows.
Nice pix. Has Lily adjusted to the walking stick? Or do you just not use it?
@Bruce Lawton: Could be a fan.
I’m gonna get my Doritos tomorrow.

OT: Oh shit, wait until the excitable ones hear that Evil Obama is now sending DRONZ! to spy on Americans at their weddings!!
I think the pilot needs a bit more training.
You love Rosie for the same reason you love your cats. You know she loves you dearly, but she constantly wants to remind you she’s her own dog, and if it occasionally takes being perverse to prove it, so be it. .
john, you are a good guy deep down. you are.
I think Steve thinks his whiskers put him above the girls, and, frankly, with whiskers like his I can see why he feels that way.
That is all.
ya know what. we need to be nice to each other.
I’m a dick sometimes, and I gotta stop.
I think this is called “stunned silence.”
This is what I’m watching right now.
Maybe I am just projecting a bit, but Rosie – who was the burr on your socks after Tunch died, – seems to be feeling a bit left out after the new feline overlord moved in. Give that girl a scritch and a snuggle for me.
well, that happens.
I blame john.
And all three saved by you. That is awesome, John.
I like Steve’s universal cat-WTF? mode in photo #1 (it’s the one ear back thing that sells it). That’s one good looking cat, and the second photo shows how happy he is with his new home. Good job, John.
Love the group pic. And everybody okay with each other already. Good job.
