What better way to start a Monday.  Mancats on their ham-micks!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Minchie is just plain worn out from all those smacky paws with Laila yesterday.  Laying in the sun puddles will help to him recharge.

Caturday Matinee



We love nothing better than a great game of smacky paws.

Mom is getting better at filming us on her new iPhone, so sorry for the quality of this video.

Turks on Thursday

 Hey, Mom, here is that Cat Fancy magazine showcasing those beautiful Turkish Angoras!  Hey!  I'm a Turkish Angora!

 Let me go get a better look at this centerfold.

 I can see now why this guy was picked.

Magnificent whisker humps, long, long whiskers and a cute pink nose.
 
So, do you think I am Cat Fancy cover worthy?

Laila wishes Mom would do this all day long.

Mancat Monday

Minchie loves hanging out on the top of the recliner.  What he loves even more is to jump up there when Mom is sitting there and scare the you know what out of her.  MOL

 Sorry, Mom, you are getting the back of disrespect until you put that evil flashy box away.

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from August 2009 titled:

MANCAT MONDAY
 

Are you calling me a clown?

Yesterday Mom was cleaning out the computer desk and way back on the bottom shelf she found very old back issues of Cat Fancy. She was very happy to have found this one dating back to December of 2003 because the feature breed of the month was the Turkish Angora. My ladycat, Baby Patches, and I are this breed.

Some quotes from the article:
  • "They are very athletic. They do things that other cats wouldn't think of doing. They're almost like clowns."
  • "To me, they're almost the border collie of the cat world. They need to be challenged."
  • "Turkish Angoras love to be on shoulders and doors and they can do it in one jump. And they rarely miss."
  • Friendly busybodies.


    One thing the article didn't talk about was how vocal we are. Mom says I have a meow vocabulary that is unending. She can also imitate all of mine so well that people walking down the hallway must think we have two of me! And when you walk into our house, I will sing at the top of my lungs how happy I am that you came to visit me.

Thankful Thursday

Changing the sheets is an all day project for Mom.  Minchie loves to chillax on the comforter on the floor right up next to the heat register.

Toesie Tuesday

Minchie has some serious toehawks going on there.  When Mom clips his nails, it's hard to find them through all that fur.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

 Today is definitely a fleece blankie covered ham-mick kind of day here today in ChiTown!  Winter just will not leave!

 We were doing a photo shoot the other day in preps for celebrating our favorite holiday...St. Patrick's Day.

I wasn't too thrilled to be put in this girly shamrock collar, but hey, what a guy won't do for lots of treats, right?

Parade Day in Chicago

 Today is a big day in downtown Chicago! It's the annual St. Patrick's Day parade.  It steps off at noon and Mom and I will be watching from the warm, dry comfort of our recliner.  And would you believe after the parade, snow will be moving in.  

This morning the Chicago river will be died green.
 


Mom has never been to the parade in person.  Today they are expecting one million to go down and line up along the route.

Today's flashback is from September 2007 and was titled:

CANNOLI KITTY

Now what is she doing?

I guess I'll humor her and let her have her fun.

Enough already!

One thing I've learned in my short life here on earth is to be cooperative and let mom do what she wants and soon it will be over then I get lots of lovin' and treats for being such a good girl. I know she would never do anything to hurt me either in these little games she plays with me but if it brings a smile or laugh it's all worth it!

Laila MIA

The other day Mom was looking all over for me and couldn't find me.  Then she spotted me in this very comfy corner where she's never seen me before.

 Oh, Mommy, I love you so much and love when you hold me close like this.

I could sit like this forever, but only on the computer chair with Mom.

Easy Like ESSunday Morning

Mom, I know you are back there with the flashy box.
 
We are finally able to get back on the computer since Mom had her oral surgery Friday morning.  It was more intense than they thought it was going to be so she's been laying low on the recliner and sleeping lots.

Time for me to stop, rest and cool off from a work out with the turbo scratcher.

Mom is having oral surgery this morning so she may not be able to help us visit blogs.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Minchie thinking real hard if the recliner is where he wants to spend his Easy Sunday.  Mom won't be home hardly at all today and without her and his blankie it loses it's appeal.

Photo Hunt - Boogie



Today's theme is "boogie".


This was a very easy one for us!  Boogie mats have many magical powers.  One of them being it lets us teleport all over the world to visit all our friends.
