While our blog is titled "Sleeping in the Doghouse", we do have other animals in our family. This is our cat, Ichabod. He is so named because he is black and we got him about a month before Halloween. Also, John thinks it is funny to call him "Icky".

Like most indoor cats, he spends any time he's not asleep looking outside. He has gotten out a few times, but always comes running back in because it's too scary out there in the "real world".

When we got Daisy, he became a living squeaky toy. She likes to pounce on him and chew on him until she finds the spot that makes him meow. Icky doesn't like this very much, but he's so gentle that he won't fight back. He just meows until we pull her off of him. Poor kitty!

But his most favorite thing to do is groom his Daddy. He will sit for hours licking and trimming John's hair.

Although he is a gentle indoor kitty, this is how he really sees himself:

Don't they all?

  1. That's good, Amanda. I've had Icky groom my hair a time or two at your house. Guess he likes Grandma to visit just like Tony does.
