You don’t have to be a super dedicated follower of my crappy blog to know I have a cat named Ody. That big lug pops up in pictures here all the time… not only because he’s hard to miss, but he’s almost always out in the open. I do have another cat who is anything but conspicuous given that he spends about half of his time in hiding places I can’t even get to, and simply can not be found in the unlikely event that I have a visitor.
That’s my black cat Biskit, who you can see sitting atop the freezer in my kitchen staring out of the gaping hole in the blinds Ody and his predecessor Spilly made back in the day. You can tell he’s not too keen on being photographed, and much like me, usually prefers to be left alone. Occasionally, though, there are times when even Biskit feels the need to get some loving from his pathetic owner…
Typically, my ass will be parked in front of the computer for
hours days weeks months at a time… and so when either cat wants some attention, they know where to find me. Ody will jump up on the side table, meow, and then flop around on his back like a fish out of water until I perform my official duty of giving him belly scritches. This is one of the few areas where Biskit is actually much more aggressive….. as you can see, he’s very direct at demanding asking for some loving. He purrs like a lion while he rubs his head on my arm. And if that isn’t enough to get my attention away from the porn games on my computer….
Out comes the claws. He won’t scratch me…. thank goodness. He’ll just lay his paw on my arm and dig his claws into me until I’ve realized that he’s not going to go away until he gets what he wants. Biskit’s definitely a weird cat who can go from invisible to attention ho in the time it takes me to open a can of cat food… and I shouldn’t let Ody steal all the glory on my blog. So Biskit, this Picture Day post is just for you!
