Johnny's busy day at the office

I woke up a little later than usual yesterday morning, to see a big orange blob out my window.
I put my glasses on and realized it was Johnny and not a leftover pumpkin.



Johnny: It's about time you got up. We're going to be late for work.



By the time I got dressed and made it outside, Johnny and Wynonna were pacing at the front porch gate,
demanding their breakfasts. To find Wynonna waiting at the gate is nothing new.
Johnny joined her on a regular basis about a week ago. It's nice to not have to go looking for him, 
but now if he's never not there with her, I'll be a nervous wreck until I find him.

Anyway, everybody got fed, then I got my coffee and settled into the office for a day's work,
whereupon Johnny showed up at the door. He's got my schedule – and Smooch's schedule – down pat.
He's figured out that when Smooch is in the backyard, it's safe to stand at the office door and beg to come inside.
And of course I let him. 


Me: No, you cannot sit on my lap, you feral beast. I'm busy.



Johnny: It would be easier to pace back and forth across this wall and make you crazy
if this post weren't in the way.



Me: The sooner you get off my keyboard, the sooner I can finish my work and feed you.




Johnny: I've been on my best behavior for at least an hour.




Johnny: Surely it must be quitting time.

  5. Johnny hanging with Wynonna isn't a bad idea. No one is gonna mess with her or i bet you'd hear about it. Fingers crossed that Johnny and Smooch will both be in for Christmas.

  7. this is normal cat behaviour (walking on the keyboard). this Johnny boy really speaks intensely with his beautiful green eyes, and that is not the case with all cats, he is into communication with you

  17. He is such a beautiful cat and I'm really enjoying his tale of being such a feral cat who likes the creature comforts of a warm house.

  19. In addition to being so very cute, he is huge!

  20. It took about ten years before my cat finally got the message that she was NOT welcome to walk across my keyboard when I was working. Johnny appears to be a quick learner, giving you an hour of catless keyboard time. :)

  22. The cockeyed ear trick-when our cat does this it means mischief will soon happen. Johnny looks so healthy and handsome!

    Well, hasn't Mr. J. Cash just gone and stolen everyone's heart !

  25. Go Johnny, go!!! Clearly he knows who rules the roost and it isn't Wyonna. My money is on Smooch. For some strange reason, we never get pictures of Smooch and Johnny in close proximity together unless it involves high fences. Are you researching how to help teach dogs and cats get along? Inside?

  26. He looks positively kittenish in that keyboard shot, with his ears all forward and his tail high. Such a cute cat.

  27. My gosh he's a gorgeous cat. I love those photos. I just lost my Pepper last night; so especially appreciated seeing some happy cat photos

  28. Johnny is so beautiful. Reminds me of the cat I had growing up.

  29. It's good to see a cat back at the MSN. Long may he reign!

  30. Johnny knew all along he was a barn cat. Just took a little time to convince his mama. :-)

  31. Oh, he is SO adorable! He'll like this routine once it gets cold, too, although I suspect he'll be spending MORE time inside! :-)

  32. I'm loving this fella's personality. He's pretty gorgeous, too.

  33. I admire the iron discipline it must take to actually get work done among all those loveable four-legged distractions!
