Spotlight Thursday – Meet Andy and Dougy

29 Dec

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Andy and Dougy

Age:  Five (we are from the same litter, born July 1, 2011.)

Location:  Alliance, Nebraska

Web/Blog Page:  Weggieboyg’s Blog

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  [Dougy] We have only one, but he was very kind to us! The biggest surprise was the water fountain that we barely were tall enough to use, but we still use that kind of fountain, which gives us filtered, tasty water whenever we want it!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?   [Andy] It had to be when I had to go to the veterinarian’s clinic to be treated for an intestinal parasite all of us kittens got when we ate an infected grasshopper. My brother Dougy was there and I was really happy to see him again! We played together all the time and had a great time. When it was time to come back to the human’s place, he brought Dougy with us, too, and that was when I knew I was home at last!  [Dougy] Yes, my other littermates and I were still at the veterinarian’s with our mother when Andy was taken home. He was there only a few days when the human was concerned he wasn’t thriving. He called the lady who had our mother and brothers and sister (three boys; one girl) to let her know he was concerned Andy might not live. She offered to pick him up and bring him to the clinic (where  she worked!), which she did. I was really, really, really happy to see Andy again! When the lady (who knew our human wanted a second cat for a companion for Andy) took me out to the front desk to ask our human if he wanted me, too, I could tell by his expression that he already loved me, too. That was when i knew I was going to have a new permanent home!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  Andy & Dougy together: Ha! Ha! We get away with murder!  [Andy] Dougy even destroys furniture with his scratching. [Dougy] Andy is a Mr. Goody Two Shoes, but, then, he’s named after the patron saint of Scotland, St. Andrew.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Andy & Dougy: We have only one human to buffalo! [Andy] He feels sorry for me because I am so serious and good! [Dougy] He thinks I’m a comedian, which, of course, I am! I am particularly funny to him when I clean up because I stop and stare at him briefly as if I’m telling him “What’s the matter? Haven’t you ever seen a cat lick himself before?” Don’t know! I guess you have to see my performance to appreciate it!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  [Andy] That we need to be lap cats when really all we expect from them is to feed us, play wand toy games with us, brush us, leave us alone when we aren’t in the mood to be touched, and “scritch” us the way we like to be “scritched” when we are in the mood to be toughed! I personally like being “scritched” in the little spot between my eyes I can’t reach safely with my claws…..! [Andy goes into a swoon thinking about it, and Dougy, strangely quiet other than a soft purring as he thinks about that wonderful “between the eyes scritch” he also loves, loves, loves!]

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    oh how beautiful you are… no wonder that you can get away with anything…. who can be angry when he has to smile after a look in your eyes? no one can, I’m sure

      Only one of the photos shows Dougy (the bottom one when we were kittens wrestling on the sofa), and he’s to one on the right. Anyway, we are Persians so we have big, beautiful eyes, thank you! You can see more of Dougy on weggieboy’s blog since he has hogged up (no insult intended…!) most of the recent posts, but there have been times Doug (our human) posted mostly my photos, so I shouldn’ty complain too much.

    My cats like that magic spot between the eyes too! You sound like great kitties!

      We think so! Another couple of favorite spots are right at the base of our tails (on the top side, of course) and right between our front legs. That feels so yummy, we both lick our human when he does it, and we aren’t kitties that let down our cattitude and drool that much!.

      Mostly we do, but let a fly, miller, spider, or cricket get into the house, and…RAWR!!!!

      Here’s a video of us kitties dealing with a cricket, quite effectively, I’d say:

    Reblogged this on weggieboy's blog and commented:
    Andy and Dougy were featured yesterday on Piglove’s blog. If you are unfamiliar with the blog, here’s a chance to get a taste of the fun you’ll find there! Yes, the interviewer is a Vietnamese potbelly [pig with lots of personality and a pig-like curiosity about everyone and thing else. Take a read:

    You two kids are pretty adorable. Sounds like your dad is a lucky guy to have found you and you are lucky kitties to have found him. Perfect family!

    Love and licks,
