New Year's Eve Excitement

OTTO: I caught a mousey, I caught a mousey!

OTTO: Two nights ago just after midnight I caught a mousey downstairs and I took him straight upstairs to my Daddy Jimmy and showed mister mousey to him and to Melrose and to Pussy Galore and I was so happy!

MELROSE: And Pussy Galore and I didn't have the energy to interact with Spaz Cat, so we just sat back and watched.

OTTO: And then I put mister mousey down and he ran underneath a pile of dirty laundry so I had to dig him out and it took me a long time...

OTTO: And when I finally got mister mousey back I growled like a fierce tiger holding his prey!

MELROSE: Of course, I didn't hear him, but I got the message anyway.

OTTO: And then I took my mousey downstairs again and played with him some more under the dining table...

MELROSE: Otto likes to play with his mice, which is why he lets them run away so he can chase after them again. And after half an hour of playing this way, he let his mouse run underneath Daddy Kevin's desk and the mouse ESCAPED. And for a whole day we had no idea where he was! And PGII and I spent the whole morning sniffing around the whole house for this mouse, but we never found him.

OTTO: But I kept a vigil outside the kitchen all night in case I saw another mousey..

OTTO: And then, just this morning, I found mister mousey again in the very place where he escaped!

OTTO: But this time Daddy Kevin took my mousey away from me and put him in a plastic box. Drat!

MELROSE: Then Daddy Jimmy showed the mouse to Pussy Galore...

MELROSE: ...and she showed no interest whatever. As for me, I ate my breakfast during the whole escapade.

OTTO: I hope this new year will bring me more mouseys!

MELROSE: And I hope in this new year Daddy Jimmy will stop taking my picture all the time!

Sixth Day of Christmas Fun

MELROSE: Today I'm in love with Daddy Kevin's sandal...

OTTO: And today I'm playing with a new feather toy that Daddy Jimmy got for me!

OTTO: And Pussy Galore is sitting by the backyard door.

OTTO: Hi Pussy, can I play with you?

MELROSE: Wake me up when it's all over...

Boxing Day Movies

MELROSE: In case you weren't in Melbourne, Australia yesterday (which was Christmas Day), here's a video of the hail storm that sent PGII under the living room couch:

MELROSE: And because Otto stole my Christmas feather toy, today I have to make do with making toys out of non-toys, like this cardboard centre from a roll of paper towels. Daddy took this film of me...

...until I realized I was acting like a stupid dog, so I stopped!

Merry Christmas to All!


OTTO: Christmas Day started well with PGII donning festive gear.

MELROSE: You mean, PGII was forced to endure kitty fashion shame...

OTTO: And we all hung around the Christmas tree...

OTTO: I can has ornament!

MELROSE: And then Daddy Jimmy opened up a new feather toy for me, and Otto stole it!

OTTO: And then in the afternoon there was a thunderstorm with lots of hail!

MELROSE: And poor Pussy Galore got scared and ran for cover...


MELROSE: But I wasn't fazed a bit because I couldn't hear any of it.

OTTO: But at least it was a white Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all from Otto, Melrose, and Pussy Galore II...

Sunday Slideshow

OTTO: Pussy Galore II spends her afternoons in Daddy's closet because it's nice and cool there during this summer weather.

OTTO: But I like to sus her out...

MELROSE: And then usually I sus out Otto...

OTTO: And then Melrose susses PGII out...

MELROSE: And then we all sus out each other over breakfast in the laundry room...

OTTO: Peeky!

MELROSE: "Peeky?" PGII is ignoring Otto...

MELROSE: And I ignore them both...

OTTO: Pay attention to me!


OTTO: I demand to give Daddy Kevin his nightly lickies!

OTTO: I demand my lap time!

MELROSE: We are ignoring you, Otto.

OTTO: Zzzzzzz....
