Mancat Monday

Ah, Mom, I think this little cushion could be a tiny bit bigger don't you think?

Gonna be a scorcher today so Laila will be hanging close to her Cat Hair Magnet by the a/c vents.

Thankful Thursday

I am very thankful that Mom bought me this Cat Hair Magnet. It took some getting use to how to use it. So Mom trained me on it's benefits. Now each morning I beg her to brush me.

As soon as I see my mom holding my brush, I run over to the Magnet.

While she is brushing me, I start rubbing my head on the bristles of the Magnet.

It's really great for getting under the chin and cheeks.

And it's so wonderful to have the very top of my head scritched.
I think everyone should get one of these and learn how to use it. Sometimes I'll even go over to it and start rubbing my face on it all by myself.

Tummy and Toesies Tuesday

We are letting our cousins, Sushimi and Lady, have the Tummy and Toesies Tuesday post today since Mom is now finally home from staying with them for four days.

Sushimi has the white tummy and toesies like we have. Right away we know she is A-okay in our books! Mom says she loves her tummy rubbed and will act like a roly poly bug when you do. She looks like our kind of girl!

Everyone thinks Lady thinks Mom is her mom because their hair/fur is the same color. Her golden tummy also loves to be rubbed and immediately rolls over on her back for you with all of her toesies up in the air loving every minute of it. We never met a woofie before but know in time we'd be the boss over her just like Sushimi is.

Mancat Monday

Is that a nose peeking out under the end table?

Let's get a little closer to see who it might be.

Looks like a very furocious mancat to us!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Sure is quiet and boring while Mom is gone taking care of our cousins! At least we have each other to keep company. So we'll just chillax here on the cat hair magnet.

Sharing Mom

Mom is cat/dog/house sitting for her sister's fambly while they are away for four days. She is spending time with us but sleeps at Sushimi and Lady's house.

Cousin Sushimi. Mom says she reminds her a lot of Laila with her squeaky little mews.

And this is Lady. Lady goes insane when Mom is around! She thinks she's a lap dog.

What is especially hard is that Cousin Gizmo isn't there anymore because he ran away to the Bridge a few months ago. But Sushimi is more than making up for his absence. We really don't mind Mom dividing her time between both houses because we know she'll be back for good Monday afternoon.

Formerly Feral Friday

For quite a long time Mom has been wanting to get one of these for us. She finally gave in and did seeing how much all of our CB friends love theirs. Well, Mom is very disappointed that the only time I played with it was the day she put it together. It's like Minchie can't even see it. She has put it away and brought it out a few times but I still show no interest. She's even tried different kinds of balls in the track. Sorry Mom!

Thankful Thursday

Today we pay special thanks to all the wonderful, lifelong friends we have met through the Cat Blogosphere. Yesterday was such a sad day in our world with the heartbreaking loss of four of our friends. We treasure each and every one of you. You all have a special place in our hearts.

Good Bye Sweet Friend

Our hearts are breaking and so sad for the loss of our dear friend, Fat Eric.
Never forgotten, always loved.

Toesies Tuesday

Laila now knows why Mom loves these sandals. Her little furry toesies can't get over how cushy soft and comfy they are.

Monday, August 16, 2010

Mancat Monday

Ah, yes, the days when all the windows were open and all the nice clean, cool, no humid air would come into the house. We only get the east exposure so no nice cross breezes come in to keep our furs nice and cool and aired out. Mom keeps counting the days until fall, her favorite season, but that's no guarantee Mother Nature will cooperate.

This horrible heat has really taken it's toll on poor Laila.
Her cat hair magnet brush is right by two air conditioning vents to keep here nice and cool.

Photo Hunters - Orange

Today's Photo Hunt theme is orange.

Poor Minchie! Mom was at it again with the hats and the flashy box. But he does look oh so cute in his orange pumpkin hat!

Thankful Thursday

I am very thankful that I knew my big sister, Lilly, for a year before she went to the Bridge (at age 17) two years ago. This is about as close as we ever got as she was a senior kitty with health issues and didn't have the patience for a crazy kitten like me. But she did enjoy watching all my antics and I was more than happy to keep her entertained. Mom and I still miss her very much.

Wordy Wednesday

Remember JoJo, the neighbor kitty Mom cat sat for back in February while her mom and dad went to Hawaii? We have been very sad for the past 5 days because her mom, Debbie, passed away from cancer. Mom is going to her memorial service tonight with a bunch of neighbors. We can't imagine how much JoJo is missing her mom. Mom is sad too because she has lost a good friend.

Toesies Tuesday

Here is a picture when Angel was living with us of he and Laila showing off all their toesies. We miss having him here, but he is doing great in his house being Top Cat and King of the Castle. When Mom goes down to visit him, he immediately runs to his food bowl in the kitchen thinking she's going to put nummies in it. MOL!

Mancat Monday

Sometimes I like to lay here under the cat tree and keep watch on my basket overflowing with my mousies. I like to take inventory them every day to make sure none have gotten away.

World Cat Day

We are celebrating World Cat Day today by remembering all the wonderful cat shelters and foster homes that go above and beyond to help homeless cats. We both came from a cat shelter and the same foster mom, so today we also remember Sue, our foster mom, who works so tirelessly for all the kitties. When she isn't at her day hunting job, you can always find her at The Buddy Foundation.

And a special thanks today to Ann at Zoolatry for designing these beautiful graphics for us today. You are the best!

Photo Hunters - Colorful

Today's Photo Hunters theme is colorful.

Guess whose cute little toesies these are sticking out of her colorful tunnel?

Flashback Friday

This Flashback Friday goes back to November 3, 2008.


I bet you all think this is me as a young Mancat in training, right? Well, guess again. It isn't! My former daddy wrote to mom and sent these pictures and said a friend of a friend has this kitty that looks just like me when I would be around 6 months old or so.

Thankful Thursday

Mom got a great deal at Petsmart on line for this thing that's called a Cat Hair Magnet. It took me a few weeks to get the hang of what this thing is for.

It makes a great platform for me to chillax on.

It's now one of my favorite spots.

Many times I fall asleep on it. Finally I am using it for what it was meant to be. In the morning I make a real pest out of myself for Mom to brush me. Now when she starts brushing me I walk over to the Magnet and she takes care of the back half of me while I rub up against the great brush on this and get my face, head and neck. Talk about being in kitty heaven! If I had thumbs, I'd give it a two thumbs up!

Mancat Monday Guest

We would like to introduce you to a new friend of ours, Father Tom who blogs over at Temptation of Christ Parish. He had his first ever contest and we won!

And this is what we won! A beautiful Jim Shore angel holding a cat, who looks just like our good buddy Angel!

We are keeping it here in this place of honor. Mom is just crazy over this little statue and wanted it out where she could see it no matter where she sat in the living room.

Thank you so much, Father Tom, for this gorgeous prize! We will cherish it forever and each time we see it we will think of you. Everyone, please be sure to check out Father Tom's website. He's a very handsome Maine Coon mancat who lives in Maine.
