mancat monday

Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.

I left a surprise for mom in the bathroom during the night -- a big juicy hairball.  It was on the rug and she stepped on it!  She said a word on the bad word list.  Then she realized I had also vomited on the bed -- twice!  She was, let's say, a little peeved.  I don't know why I vomited on the bed, it just seemed like the thing to do.  Sometimes a cat just has to vomit.

an award!

I gotted an award from Brian!

Adopt cats, we deserve it!

To me, Brian is a big inspiration -- he does so much for so many cats.  I am supposed to link to an inspirational post, but I haven't been blogging that long and I don't know what to post.  I'm going to turn it ofur to mama.

Hi kitties -- it's the mama.  This was easy for me.  This week saw the end of the Don't ask, don't tell policy in the military.  As the loving sister of a gay woman, I know a bit about how hard it can be to be a gay person in America.  To think of all the people who served our country under this policy is very inspirational to me. I am so proud of them.  Whatever your stand is on this policy, I hope you can join me in being proud of all the brave men and women in uniform who protect us every day.

tunnel tuesday


I finally got in the tunnel.

I'm still not a big fan.  But I did try it out!  Kit still loves it, he goes in it all the time.  Maybe I will learn to like it more, but for now I prefer my box or the new bed.  Some kitties asked how Kit and I can both fit in the new bed -- we don't, really.  One of us has to spill over.  I think mama should get us another one!

Easy like Sunday

Hi kitties!

The weather is wonderful here, so we haf gotten lots of window whiffies!  I am also watching lots of birdie TV, but the birdies don't seem to like their new food as much as they liked the old stuff, so there are not as many around.  Fix this situation mama!

We also haf been taking lotsa naps, in the new bed and in our ham-micks.  It's a good weekend!  I hope you are hafing a good weekend too!

new bed

We gotted a new bed!

Here I am after being rudely awakened by the flashy box.

Kit doesn't let the flashy box bother him one bit!

This was an impulse buy at Petco.  Now mama wishes she had gotten two, because sometimes we squabble over this one.  We have slept in it together a couple of times though! It's furry comfortable.  Between this and our ham-micks, we have lots of places to sleep!

mancat monday

Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.

This is an old picture, when I was skinnier.

Bad mom!  She forgot to give me my medicine treat this morning.  She got an email today from the v-e-t -- I am overdue for my physical.  She is going to wait until I was supposed to get my thyroid rechecked and get it all done at once.  She says I have had so many v-e-t visits, she wants to spare me as much as possible.  I'm on board with that plan!  I really hate the v-e-t.  I tried to bite a tech once.

Mom better not forget to give me my medicine treat tonight!  It is delicious.  Tuna flavor!

whisker hump wednesday

A few weeks ago Kit showed off his whisker humps to you in honor of Kismet.  If you didn't know Kismet, he was the original Big Mancat and his whisker humps were legendary. Neither Kit nor I can hope to match his humps but I wanted to show you mine in honor of the great Kismet.

Pee Ess -- Mama forgived me.  She efun let me make biscuits on her chestal area for a long time.

I am in trouble today.

I kept waking up mama last night.  I knocked ofur her jewelry box twice and all the jewelry went all ofur the floor and made a big noise.  She hadded to get up and turn on the light and clean it up -- twice.

But the way I look at it is, it's really mama's fault for leaving the jewelry box there.  She knows I like to push things off the edges of tables!  And this is just too tempting.  It makes such a big noise!

Anyway, I'm sorry mama.  I hope we can cuddle tonight and efurrything will be forgiven.

mancat monday

Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.

We have been enjoying the long weekend with mom!  We have been doing a lot of sleeping.

I knocked over our food maze and the food went all over the floor.  I ate it up before mom could clean it up! I have been eating a lot lately.  Mom says she thinks I will do great at my next checkup.  I hope that's a long way away.

Athena and I were tussling last night.  We don't tussle very often but when we do I enjoy it.  She is bigger than I am, but I am stronger than she is so I usually win.  She started it last night but I finished it!

I hope everycat has a good holiday today.  Spend some extra time with your moms and dads!

another prize!

Kitties!  I winned another prize!  I winned it from Freya, Teego, and Chatzi.  It's a cat food maze!

Mama puts food in the top and it falls through and we push it through the maze to the bottom where we can eat it!

It tooked us a while to figure out how to use it.  Kit tried to eat the food just by going in through the top.

I figured it out and hadded fun playing wif it!  Of course, I love anything that has to do wif food.

Thanks for our prize, Freya, Teego and Chatzi!  We are hafing fun wif it!

I gotted to haf some and they were delicious!  Kit didn't eat his so mama putted them back in the bag.  I think she should haf given them to me -- after all, they're my prize!  Thanks Mousebreath!

sorting hat

In Harry Potter world, every September 1st young witches and wizards hop onto the Hogwarts Express and head to Hogwarts.  When they get there, the sorting hat puts them into their houses.  We're letting mama blog today, since she is a Harry Potter fanatic.

I was thinking about Hogwarts today and where my cats might be sorted if they went there.  Kit, I think, would be a Gryffindor and Athena would be a Hufflepuff.  Here is the Sorting Hat song from the first book:

You might belong in Gryffindor
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.

Kit is definitely brave enough to be a Gryffindor!  He is my little escape artist who loves to dart outside to explore the great outdoors.  He also is never scared during thunderstorms.  He wasn't troubled by Hurricane Irene and even last week's earthquake didn't seem to bother him!  The only thing that might keep him out of Gryffindor is the chivalry part.  Sometimes he turfs Athena out of her sleeping spots.

And sweet Athena is definitely Hufflepuff material.  She is utterly loyal -- she follows me all around the house and she sits on my lap everytime she gets the chance.  She is very patient when Kit bugs her and she definitely has a true heart -- she is a real mama's girl.  As far as toil goes -- well, cats aren't really into toil, I guess, but the determination with which she makes biscuits makes me think that this fits her as well.

So those are my Hogwarts kitties!
