Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Our NOMSS Friend Professor Bernard Armstrong

We accepted Karl's challenge and sought out our very own "Not of My Species Special Friend." We found Professor Bernard Armstrong, a cute miniature schnauzer d-o-g who lives in the U.K. We picked Bernard because our mom used to have miniature schnauzers in her family starting when she was a young teenager. First there was Dapper (Dan), then Mitzi, then (Annie) Oakley. All three of them had to live with cats and loved them. Oakley lived with Toby, a meezer, who liked to play chase with her and who also liked to groom her. We love Bernard's floppy little ears; Mom's dogs all had docked ears and that was something that she did not like about the American standard.

Miniature schnauzers are fun little exuberant bundles of energy and very affectionate. We're very pleased to make Bernard's acquaintance and look forward to a long friendship.


BTW, our Wordless Wednesday post requires a little explanation. I always eat my meals in the kitchen, and Jake dines out on the deck. Mom separates us because Jake is such a hog and would push me out of my food and eat it all up if he had the chance. I like to take my time eating; Jake likes to inhale his. Anyway, sometimes I do not feel like eating my whole dinner right away. On this occasion, I ate a few bites, then wanted to go outside. Jake was still eating his dinner, but I was too polite to try to nose in on his food. If you click to biggify the photo, you will see that the bowl on the left is a water dish with Jake's name on the inside.

Hi Jake and Bathsheba,

Thank you so much for linking to my site. I'm actually a little frightened of cats. They normally hiss at me if I go too close but you seem very nice.

Thanks again.

Bathsheba, you are very polite not to bother Jake while he was eating. You are a true lady.

That is a very good choice of a NOMSS friend! I know what you mean though Bathsheba, I don't always want to eat my food and I never eat quickly!
