I will love him and pet him and squeeze him and call him Garth

Sean has been a bit under the weather the past few days but he is beginning to feel better and the cat knows that better than anyone.  Sean is constantly chasing Garth, loving and squeezing him and feeding him way too many treats.  I don't feel sorry for the cat one bit... he could easily get away if he wanted to and yet he subjects himself to Sean's smothering.  

This is an amazingly tolerant cat.  He has all of his claws and I rarely see him lash out at any of the boys...and when he does he rarely even brings his claws out.  I am sure that he knows on some primal level that he has a pretty good life here and therefore he keeps his attitude and manners in check most of the time.... even when a bit of schooling is in order.  

So Sean is once again on the prowl and Garth is on full alert.  Sean will pick him up and carry him around every chance he gets.  He will pull him out from under the table, off the bed and he will push him in the laundry basket (yes the cat will sit in the laundry basket, much to Sean's delight for a ride).  Now Garth is not a docile animal but his willingness to bow to Sean's will is commendable.  Sometimes I wonder if Garth tolerates Sean to the extent that he does because he knows he will be rewarded handsomely.  Sean routinely climbs up onto the counter to retrieve a generous handful of treats for Garth who is well aware that Sean pays no attention to the 3 treat a day limit that the rest of the household abides by.  

Heeeeeeeersssssss Johnny Sean!

I love my boy

Good kitty Garth
