"Pets in the City" bought to you by Eric's Home Blog in the Office. London.

Bloggies. Any resemblance to a TV show of a similar name is dog - gone crazy! My blog of our weeks escapades contains graphic scenes of a shocking and disturbing nature. Especially to Dogs that blog. And maybe a Hamster.


Eric's Opening Monologue.
Whatever happened to the relationship between cats and dogs. Were we always playing cat and mouse with each other? Playfully teasing? Prolonging the pain and torment of one another? One minute being the hunter. The next the hunted. That's how life is with me and the Kittie. Here's how my week started when Otis sneaked into my crate.








Eric's Closing Monologue.
Later on this week I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up and tear you apart. Others Sincere. New Pals. True Friends. Those that bring up lots of questions. And those, that in spite of everything, allow two opposites to attract. Exist side by side. Cat and Dog. Love and Hate. Friend and Foe. Guess that's me and Otis. Look at that darn silly cat. Always sneaking under things to sleep. Newspapers, magazines, bags, duvets. Even under my blanket. Yes. They are. It's the real deal. These truly are untouched photos of the Kittie and me. Oh - me - oh - my. The shame. The shame. Dog. I hope no doggy sees me.


(Pals. I'm going away for R + R with the 2 leggededs next week. Please forgive me if I don't visit you and your blog then but Daddi Square says if we have pooters he and Momi will work and I will blog! As if! So they are banned. Can you imagine ? What will we do? I've put my blog on scheduler for next week, wig your wag over if you can. I'll be around to visit you again soon)

Butchy & Snickers said...

Awwwwh, that's a cute picture of you & Otis napping together. You probably don't know this about me Butchy since you haven't been blogging too long, but I Butchy, before Mama rescued me, lived with a CAT & a doberman. Yep, a kitty. I guess I would wrestle with the cat all day long. It's just like everything in this world, there are good kitties & there are bad kitties. It's nice to be pals with the good kitties. Otis is surely a good kittie. Have fun on your trip!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Oh that's really brave of you to be so close with a kitty.
That part about the toy mouse sure is scary. I gotta cover my eyes at that photo

Keep a close eye on that cat, they may look all sweetness and light. But they carry sharp razors in their paws.

I think it is cool you have such a wonderful friendship with Otis the kittie. Those were wonderful photos of the two of you. Have fun on your adventures with your pawents and hopefully by the time you get back, my mum will not be as busy as she is right now.

We have cat relatives -- but happily they DO NOT LIVE WITH US. We are impressed by your approach to your situation. Obviously your kittie understands a good thing when he sees one.

Lots of wirey love. Have fun on your R&R -- we'll miss you.

What a wonderful love/hate/love relationship that you and your kitty have! I loved those pictures with you two.

Beta said...

All the cats in my neighbourhood send mixed signals. They follow me on my walks but if I go and say hello they smack me on the nose.


Have fun on your vacation.

Love and biscuits,


PS: the computer had a mini breakdown and deleted your comment on my blog. Sigh. Thanks for dropping by.

Eric, I'm all for peaceful co-existence and all but take a good look at that kitty.. are you sure she's not frozen in place by terror? I've seen that look before... on my catsister. I don't know, Eric ....
Have a great holiday.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Oh,'re so clever! If only I could be that close to a kitty without having to continually smell it and nose poke it!

Have some good R+R!!

Good evening eric.
The history of dog and cat's stories goes back an old history.
It can be able to know the one called a sexagenary cycle in China and Japan.
The rat is included in the sexagenary cycle.
And, there is no cat.
This cheats the cat by the rat, and assumes the thing not held in the sexagenary cycle to be a legend. The cat and ..rat.. reviews.
It is a difficult story for a moment.
I'm sorry.
Operetta of cat of patterned wonderful carpet. :)

Hi Eric!

I've grown up with Mica, who is 13 years older than me! We'll sometimes sleep side by side but I think he's more embarrassed to have a dog friend than I am to have a kitty friend. But stay on Otis's good side - when I made Mica mad, he peed in my bowl! Yech!

From Mica — "That photo frightened me - at first I thought you'd beheaded poor Otis! Don't take him on a tour of the Tower of London!"

Have fun on your holiday!

Your pals,

Petey and Mica
