It is absolutely gorgeous out. Monster Truck has been outside the entire day, taking advantage of the perfect weather. He also joined Corona and I on a short walk. Monster Truck tried hiding behind a tree and scaring Corona again, but was unsuccessful… Monster Truck thinks it’s the greatest thing ever; Corona, not so much.
Monday’s are rough, but Monster Truck had a great day as always. He went through his regular routine of waking up, going downstairs to eat, then coming back upstairs to wait for me to finish showering, outside the door. Monster Truck LOVES drinking the milk from the cereal bowl. He waits on the table for me to finish eating, then takes a few licks of whatever milk is left. One thing to know about him is that he always prefers whole milk or even 2% over skim milk. He’s a particular cat with expensive tastes.
Monster Truck also sat at the dinner table with us tonight. He doesn’t do that as often because he’s usually outside at the time we have dinner, but tonight was an exception. He sure loved the grilled chicken!
Oh yeah, and Monster Truck brought home a nice dead squirrel for me the other day. Thanks MT!
A few weeks ago, Monster Truck wasn’t feeling very well, so both Corona and Max came up to check up on him while he was eating. He usually has his dinner on the counter but he was unable to jump up so I had to put it on the floor for him. Corona & Max wouldn’t leave him until he was all done eating, and then, like a family leaving a restaurant, they all left together.
Max and Monster Truck did not get along at all when they first met a couple years back, but now they’re good friends. Max now knows that Monster Truck is the boss of the house and he has certainly learned not to mess with him. Max even looks out for his cat friend now!
Corona was in a very good mood today; her tail all curled up, smiling, ready for adventure. Unfortunately, the only adventure she had was going for a walk. Nonetheless, she had a great time on her walk with Monster Truck. It’s the happiest i’ve seen her in awhile. Even an old pug like Corona loves to go for walks. That is, when it isn’t too cold or too hot (she’s very sensitive to the weather).
Corona wishes everyone a very happy Friday!
The days where Corona and Monster Truck spend 90% of their day on the couch. Sometimes Monster Truck will venture out into the rain, but most of the times he’ll stay instead with Corona.
Corona absolutely DREADS going for a walk at any point of the day when it’s raining. Even when it’s cold and/or snowing she hates it. She used to love playing in the snow when she was younger, but I guess in her old age she’d rather relax near the fireplace.
As you can see by this picture, Corona really doesn’t want to go outside.
Monster Truck on the other hand looks pretty excited for the rain!
This is completely unrelated to Corona & Monster Truck, but I just thought I would share some pictures of some dogs I met in Ecuador this past summer. I’m assuming the reason people follow this blog is because they either like dogs or cats (or both), so here you go!
This dog was about the size of my hand, and he was absolutely adorable. This little dog was in a shop, so naturally I had to go see this fluff ball.
All of the dogs in Ecuador were incredibly friendly, and loved any and all attention.
I don’t remember interacting with this dog much, but he’s pretty cute as you can tell.
I do remember this dog, and he was as sweet as could be.
THIS dog was one of a kind. He followed me around for roughly a mile until returning to go back where he came from. Not only was he the sweetest and coolest dog in the country of Ecuador, but he was also adorable.
Every now and then, for whatever reason, Monster Truck will go in Corona’s crate and spend some time in there. He doesn’t even leave any room for Corona! He used to do it when he was sick, but now I think he just genuinely enjoys it. She has plenty of other beds and places to rest, so she doesn’t mind him spending some time in there.
Just the other day, Monster Truck decided to take his nap into Corona’s crate.
Corona was patiently waiting for him to leave.
Corona was waiting for a long time.
