Mini-ManCat Monday

Cats regard humans as warm-blooded furniture.

Officially it is summer here now in the northern half of the globe. Longest daylight hours of the year, but it was a cloudy and a bit rainy. So hard to tell if it was long daylight day or not. 

I sat on mum's lap for a while yesterday. She worked on her crow-shay hats while she watched racy cars on the moving picture box. She finished one hat and did two more. Being a rainy day she didn't have to much else to do. She finished the last part of a book and did the washing. 

One of the shelters had a fund raising walk. This was one of the cats who was on the walk, he looks rather cool doesn't he?

Not much going on this week, everyone have a good week.

Caturday

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Me and mum are just planning to hang out for the weekend. She has been doing her chores. Dishes, recycling out to the bin, picking up stuff and making the place neat. Even a bit of the evil sucking monster. 

We had a couple of nice days in the middle of the week, so open windows for me to sniff. Mum even sat outside one night and readed her book. Nice temps, gentle breeze and no mosquitos! Plus it is Box Day so mum is showing me in the box from a couple of weeks ago. I am not a big box kittie so mum doesn't leave them around for me. 


Then the tree monkey guys were here. Mum had them come to fix the trees. The one out front had a big deaded branch up on top. Plus in places it was so low she had a hard time ducking under it to use the grass eater. In the back they took away the short tree stump too. Mum says they didn't even cut it, just wiggled it out of the ground. Now she needs dirt to fill up the hole!

In the back, the cut out lots of the little dead stuff and a few somewhat larger pieces but left the ones that mum hangs the fevver feeders on. The crabby apple tree looks much nicer.

In the front the dead stuff from up on top and the tree monkey way up doing his job.

Mum even got a moovie, no tree monkeys were hurt in this but mum said wow! Glad she got the moovie.


Happy Weekend to all and Happy Dad's Day to all the Dads!

Garden Puzzle Thursday

 OK, we had a couple of really nice days. Open windows, nice breezes and not too hot. It is back to being hot today, so mum says no open windows today. 

It was so nice yesterday that after dinner mum went and sat outside on the patio. She took her book along to read and just relaxed. She stayed out until it got all dark and she couldn't see. Too bad she isn't a cat with our eyesight in the dark. 

Mum did use the grass eater this week. Even with the hots the grass in the shade grows so that is what she cut off. Didn't take her long to do just a little bit. 


 Me collecting lots of sun as it comes in the big windows in the back. Hot or not I loves to sit in the sun. 

Mum says our flowers are doing well, even the ones she just put in this year are blooming! Yipee. 




Puzzles are me and a couple of flowers!

Mini-ManCat Monday

It's the cat's house. We just pay the mortgage.

Heck, mum doesn't even pay the mortgage, at least not anymore. Our house is paid for! Mum still has to pay to have people do stuff. The electric guy was here a couple of weeks ago. Tree people are supposed to come soon. Mum is even going to get someone to clean the place for her!

I surprized mum the other night. I was sitting in the spot where she normally puts her day clothes at night. Well after she got all settled in the sleepy spot I launched myself from the dresser onto the bed. Mum measured it and it is 5 feet from one spot to the next. I am almost 13 but I can still jump!



 My has some yummy stuff for lunch yesterday. It was berries, schaum torte and whipped cream. Mum let me lick the leftover whipped cream. Yummy for me too. 

 Mum also wasted lots of time this weekend watching woofies on the moving picture box. It was the postponed Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Interesting is that they held some of it outside. Smaller audience and not in NYC, but at a fancy estate near Sleepy Hollow. 

Her fave dog the German Shorthair Pointer made it to the Best in Show group. Best in show was a little ugly floofy thing, mum booed, she doesn't like little floofy dogs. Oh well. 

Everyone have a good week.

Caturday

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Mum says she is pretty much staying home this weekend. Maybe a trip to the library for her stash of books. 

To start the day out we had a nice early AM snuggle time. I heard mum use the litter box and go back to bed. I jumped on the bed and laid by her head for a while. Then she rolled over and I went under the covers and we had a nice long snuggle until it was time to get out of the sleepy spot for good. 

 
Mum did go out yesterday and came home with foods. Greek Fest she said, drive through and pick up your foods. Hmm, she could have gotten a whole chick-hen but didn't. Sheesh, you know I like chick-hen. Mum says that would be too much foods for just us two. 


Spit roasted lamb for later and the gyro for lunch. She said it was yummy.


Hope you all have wonderful weekend.

Puzzle Garden Thursday

 Hots continue, mum is out watering the new flowers she put in. She doesn't need to use the grass eater this week. Otherwise kinda boring outside. 

Getting skritches and then a nice nap in mum's lap.

Pee-o-knees blooming yet, but some are fading fast with the heat.

Puzzles, me and flowers!

Mini-ManCat Monday

For every cute kitten picture, there are zillions that never were taken. - Karen Anderson

Pfft, mum almost always seems to have a flashy box handy, but there are lots you never see!

Me and mum had a quiet weekend with the hots outside and us inside. Mum doesn't do well in the hots. All she did was water the flowers and get rid of the dead bird! Oh yeah, we had a deaded bird here. 

As mum got home Friday she noticed this dark lump in front of the metal monster's room door. She made sure she didn't run over whatever it was. After the car was in place she got out and found the deaded bird.

Mum thinks it might be a grackle, maybe a baby grackle. By Caturday AM the flies were coming around so mum scooped it up with a shovel and tossed it under the spruce tree. It can rot in peace there.
Mum looked at the door later and noticed the spoltz on the door. Guess the poor birdie crashed into the door.

I got my share of lap time from mum over the weekend. Skritches and just taking it easy.
Because it was hot mum decided we needed a treat of some ice cream too. Yummy!


Have a wonderful week everyone.

Caturday

 HiYa Ducky here. ::YAWN, STRETCH:: not me mum! Finally getting going this day. She had a bizzy day yesterday and slept in. 

So what was she doing? Yep, racy cars and on a hot day. One day was enuf for her with the sun, wind and hots. Hottest day of the year so far, over 90F!

She was off Sprinting in June, one of the biggest events of the year, 400+ cars in eight race groups. Mum says it was confusing as the cars had to be put in order of registration and they didn't have all the cars on the list.
A map of the track, two big races that will be on the moving picture box soon, Indy and CrashCar, so you can see the track if you want. Four miles of fun. Mum just hangs out in the area below the walkover bridge, just inside the pit lane. The track is red with yellow arrows, pit, yellow with red arrows. Mum walks a couple of miles when she is here and doesn't really get too far away from the main base.

She got a new tshirt for working, something to get dirty in while working outside. Plus a patch, she has lots of patches. Mum didn't take a pic of the pass!

Me waiting for her to help me with the puter and mum making up for missing Hug Your Cat Day yesterday. Well, I did get hugged yesterday too, she just didn't take a pic.

OK mum, let's get this posted and then we need brekkie!

Happy Weekend everyone.
