Tearing It Up

Though by now a thoroughly domesticated cat, Dave remains an outdoorscat by nature. Even though his current life presents few opportunities, he still finds ways to keep his clawing skills sharp. Below you can see him tearing up a very conveniently shaped furniture-type object.

What is This Thing Approaching Me?

Here you can see Jack calmly attempting to enjoy a nice evening, and perhaps some solitude. However, it wasn't to be. This is his reaction to an approaching object of unknown origins.

"What Now," He Asks

Sometimes a cat simply wants to be a cat and not have to worry about anything else. In times like these, it should not be surprising if a cat makes a face such as this in response to an approaching body in motion. This is a face that says, "What now?"

Taken By Surprise

Despite his incredible sense of awareness, Dave sometimes fails to suspect an approaching observer/threat. That's when you might find Dave in a position like this.

Sometimes a cat will want to do two things at once. Here, for example, Jack cannot decide between continuing his nap and stretching. Thus, he is attempting to stretch with his front legs while napping with the rest of his body.

Afternoon Nap

One of the best times in the day to take a nap is the afternoon. By then, many hours have past since the regretful arrival of the morn, and yet there are also many hours to go before bedtime.

Other good times for naps are the late morning, high noon, and the early evening.

Even in the summer, when the windows come between Dave and the great outdoors, Dave spends time peering outside from his perch. During this time, when the weather is vomitous, he sits and ponders how grateful he is to no longer be on the mean streets of Iowa, where temperatures can often exceed 100 degrees.

Muckin' Around

No stranger to making a mess, here you can see Dave digging through his basket of toys, trying to find the best one. He tends to play with a certain toy for a week or so, then display ambivalence towards it. But today he had a hankering for a toy he used to play with, so he was searching for it.

Relaxed on a Kitchen Chair

Here you can see Jack making good use of a kitchen chair. You can't spend all day on the couch, after all.

A Robust Cat

It is well-known that the average cat does not approach Dave's greatness when it comes to napping, or to investigations. But there is another area of life where Dave surpasses the great majority of other felines - robustness

This provides Dave with certain advantages. For example, Dave wrestling skills are top-notch. However, Dave's robustness also presents certain disadvantages. Anyone familiar with the ways of cats understands that cats enjoy enclosed spaces. Dave's colleague Jack is known for his fondness of boxes. While Dave is a fearless cat who enjoys the open air, he also enjoys napping in a defined space. Below, you can see that Dave has squeezed himself into a space designed for a less robust cat. And he does so quite successfully
