About Another Boy / Sobre Otro Chico


Dudo's brother, Moose, is another adored and adoring member of our family. Although Moose and Dudo love us both and we feel the same way about them, Dudo is clearly my best buddy and Moose is San Geraldo's. As you may have noticed, Dudo loves the camera. Moose wants constant attention but would like to kill the camera.

Moose, el hermano de Dudo, es otro miembro adorado y adorador de nuestra familia. Aunque Moose y Dudo nos quieren a los dos y sentimos lo mismo con ellos, Dudo es claramente mi mejor amigo y Moose es de San Geraldo. Como pudiste haber notado, Dudo ama la cámara. Moose quiere atención constante pero quisiera matar a la cámara.

DUDO: "WHAT KIND OF POSE IS THAT? LOOK AT THE CAMERA!"
DUDO: "¿HOMBRE, QUÉ TIPO DE POSE ES ESO? ¡MIRA LA CÁMARA!"
MOOSE:"NO, I WILL NOT LOOK AT THE CAMERA! ¡JUST OPEN THE DOOR!"
MOOSE: "¡NO, NO MIRARÉ LA CÁMARA"! ¡ABRA LA PUERTA!"
OH MY GOD! AGAIN WITH THE CAMERA?"
"¡DIOS MÍO! ¿DE NUEVO CON LA CÁMARA?"

  1. He's covering his head because you are taking another shot of his privates, perhaps he thinks you are trying to sell them on the cat black market (versus the black cat market)

      He wishes! He's missing most of his privates! I love the idea of the cat black market (versus the black cat market).

  2. Both your boys are so handsome Mitchell. I grew up with two Siamese cats and they definitely had their favourites too.
    Enjoy the day.

  3. Mi abuelo tan enamorado con gatos negro y blanco. Todos sus gatos tienen la piel negro y blanco.

    He would have loved your two!

    Moose is a good looking boy.

      It warms my heart to think of your grandfather with black & white cats. I simply went online to animal shelter, saw a video of these two as kittens, and fell in love. They were already 10 months old when we got them, and I think given that black & whites are common, they might have been without a home for a very long time if not forever. So lucky to have them.

      And even better that they adore us both, too. You're so right. How fortunate we four are.

  7. It's a good thing your fur friends aren't charging modelling fees. You might consider having them sign releases so you can't be sued.

      Moose would never sue (he's too good-natured). Dudo on the other hand can be a bit bossy.

      They are both so sweet and so different.

  9. You should tell Moose and Dudo that if they weren't so adorable, you might not "hound" them so much. One of my (now deceased) cats used to run toward the sound of the autofocus and the other would run away from it! Both behaviors made photos difficult unless I zoomed from afar.

      Dudo has no problem with the camera and I think actually likes it. Moose can be so aggravating.

  11. You cats are so damn beautiful. I love that they match each other.

      On closer inspection, their markings are very distinct. But on first glance, you think they match -- except for the difference in weight. Moose's name is apt.

  12. Like W.Q. above, when one of my brood gets like M in final pic, I just can't resist giving him a tickle-tickle-tickle. I've got claw and nip scars all over the back of my right hand as evidence.

      We're very lucky that neither cat bares his claws to us or nips. I discouraged it when they were younger and we were lucky they learned really well. Dudo has punching matches with me, which is hilarious. I wish I could get a video of one of those, but then I'd have to fight back with only one hand.

  13. Still for all the camera shyness a handsome boy. I think he's just being a divo!

    Nicky and Nora both hate the camera - that damn pointy, clicky, flashy thing!

      I don't think Moose much likes the little flicker of light he says while I focus. Dudo sees it and knows it's time to pose.
