ManCat Monday

My husband said it was him or the cat....I miss him sometimes. - Anonymous

MOL, well we don't have to worry about that, it is only me and mum. We get along just fine! You try moving in on my mum, ya gotta go through me!
 Some still shots of me getting loves from mum.  You stopped, I didn't ell you to stop
We had a rainy Caturday. Mum did her one errand, them came home to hang with me. She readed her book, I hung out in her lap and we just had a nice day being inside.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - Well, it wasn't a good day. First they losted to the ViQueens. ARodg landed on his shoulder, broked his collarbone and didn't play for most of the game. Plus they are saying he may not be able to play the rest of the season. Well, me and mum may need to find other things to do on Sunday as watching feetsball won't be fun with no ARodg playing.

HiYa Ducky here, Happy Caturday. Looks like it will be a gloomy day. All clouds and rain today. We did see a few minutes of sun yesterday, but it wasn't much. Weather guesser says more sun tomorrow.

So me and mum didn't do much yesterday. She was getting something delivered and the email said the guy in the brown shorts would need a signature. Nope. The door bell rang, he put it inside the door and left! Now mum was home, so she brought it in right away. But really! She said not to worry, she didn't have anyplace to get to yesterday anyway.

What she did do was to do reading and that is when I invade her lap and let me some loves. I will show you the loves that I get!
Yeah, this was nice, all sorts of scritches in all the right places. Did you see my magnificent whisker humps? Do you pick out the whisker that wants to grow in black?

Mum got out the Hollow-weenie stuff this past week and brought some new stuff home too. You saw the sign about mum and the monsters. Yeah, some days she is a witch.

Mum says she needs to get going. Today she can drop off some old electronics for recycling for free, but she has to drive out close to where she used to day hunt. So she knows exactly where she is going.

Everyone have a good weekend. I wish we could send our rain back to Catifornia to help put out those fires. Be safe all of you.

Garden Thursday - Late, Yet Again

Hello and Welcome (FINALLY) to Garden Thursday with Virginger Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. Yet again mum has let us down for our Garden Thursday post. Get with it lady!

Not much to report, we did get some rain, so the grass is looking a bit greener and not so crunchy. Mum has gotten out some of the Hollow-weenie stuff and days this applies to us.
So she is the witch and we are the monsters? OK, just watch us be monsters!! HAHAHAHA!
 So some real garden stuff, the sedums are all nicely turned bright pink now, fall is here, the weather has cooled a bit. Below are the dried flower seeds of the columbines.
That is it, late, but we are here. Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

A cat can purr its way out of anything. - Donna Mccrohan

Oh yeah, I play attack mum. Then purr. she smiles and gives me pets. Me and mum had a good weekend. She rested up from her bizzy Friday. The green papers that got raised won't be going to us kitties. It is to help peoples who have premature babies.
 I posed real nice for mum on Caturday AM. So I have that middle distance stare of the super models!
Then I got all silly later and showed off my floofy tummeh. You know you want to pet me! FLOOF!

 Feetsball Report

The Pack - pulled it out the ARodge and company scoring the winning touchdown with 11 seconds to go. Them Cowboys tried a razzle dazzle play but it didn't work, so pulled victory out of the fire at the last minute.

Mum didn't see the whole game, she went off to see a show called Rent. Mum says she got to see enuf and the best part of the game.

Have a good weekend everyone.

HiYa Ducky here, Happy Caturday.

My day is starting out nice. I had lots of cuddles in the sleepy spot with mum, then she got up and made a lap for me while she readed the newsy paper. All is well.

Starting out to be a cloudy day and we had bits of rain which is good. Not much rain lately and the girls showed you how brown the grass looked outside on Thursday.

Mum is moving slow today. She was gone all day on Friday to help with the annual charity event at the racy track. Not too hard of work, just make sure seat belts and helmets were on and properly fastened before going on the track. She did catch one sneaky guy trying to take a passenger out that was too young to be out. Good catch mum!

So she was all tired and achy when she got home. Hot shower, lots of purrs and sleeps, now she feels better. Oh yeah, they raised nearly 85 thousand dollars as well. Good job!

So mum is taking it easy today. Library run, then home to be with me. Happy weekend all.

Garden Thursday - LATE Again!

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

It has been nice here, mum had all the windows open so we could chat with Ducky for a while yesterday.
 Mum was cooking a burger for dinner last night, she got a quick shot of us sitting. You can see the leaves that have dried up and fallen off the trees. Not much color, since it is dry, they just fall off with not much color.
 Mum even got the grass eater monster out  yesterday, mostly to chew up the leaves. You can see that parts of the grass are a bit brown since we haven't had much rain. This is the greenest part of our yard right now.
 Here is more of the lawn, the drier, browner part. We are supposed to get some rain in the next few days, so maybe things will look with a bit greener next week.
 We are getting to the end of the hummer season, but mum filled the feeder one last time. We saw our last hummer last week. Mum read to keep the feeders up for two weeks after seeing the last hummer. Mum says we are going to take time today to watch the feeder to see if we see any fevver stop by.
Hope you enjoyed the pics. See you next week.

Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

PS. Late cuz mum picked the wrong date for this to publish. Can't get good help anymore!

ManCat Monday

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. -  Hippolyte Taine

Hello and welcome to Tock-Tober. The yearly cellybration of our back ends, tushes, hiney's, buttocks, hindquarters etc. You can see one of my poses below, perched up on the tower, mum got my back side in a pic. 

So join in sometime this month and show off your assets of the rear part of your body. We all have wonderful faces, so why not show off other good parts of our body.

This is to honor my late, grate brofur Derby. It all started with Sophia the Diva Kitty, and the buns Fiona and Lando.  We started cellybrating Tock-Tober in 2009, that was afore I was even borned!
 I knows Hollow-Weenie comes at the end of the month. Mum brought this home from the mayo place and she finally unwrapped it. Said she will get the other goodies out later. Plus she says this new cat has a surprise in it!
Mum got home on Caturday in the late afternoon from the funeral. It was in the town she grew up in and she got to see lots of her old grade school furiends. The purrson who died was a mom to one of her furiends. She had a safe trip, a nice day to drive. She was disappointed that the trees didn't have more color in them.

Happy Tock-Tober, get your pics ready and post them. Let me know when you do.

Saturday, September 30, 2017


Happy Caturday everyone. It is a wonderful day here, bright, sunny and blue skies. A bit cool now but it will get nicer as the day goes on.

Mum and me had wonderful cuddles in the sleepy spot this morning. I was purring like crazy and she was just listening to me purr. Then the noisy thing by the bed sounded and she got up. This is the third day in row for this. Last two days she has been helping at the library book sale. Today she is all dressed up. Says she has a funeral to get to this morning.
 Mum did buy something at the sale, says she needs to "parlay voo Fransay" or something like that. She needs to learn a little bit as she will abandon me and head to this Basic French place next year.
Fine, I will sit on you while I can, maybe I will learn me some Frenchy too. I am ready for my brekkie for the day and mum should have some too. She will be bizzy.

Happy weekend all.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

The hots are gone! Yipee, we are all happy, the windows are back open and we can all breathe the nice cool airs. More like the fall it really is. 
 Ducky gets to make a special appearance, mum brought up a thing from the dungeon that she could put the mum's on. She hoped they would all fit on it, but no.
 So here is the yellow one sitting in the top level, mum hoped to get the other two on other levels but they all have such a big flower heads they would get smooshed.
 So mum decided to leave two of them on the little table, they she tried it another way. Put the purple one in the stand, the yellow and orinch ones on the little table.
 So far the little bunneh is leaving them alone, the bun isn't big enuf to reach them up this high. With one moved off the table, they aren't likely to get bumped off by something.

That is all for this week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

The way to get on with a cat is to treat it as an equal - or even better, as the superior it knows itself to be. - Elizabeth Peters.

If Grampie was still alive, mum says he would be 102 today. That is a lot of years. We miss you!

The hots are hanging on, so me and mum have stayed cool in the house. The air chiller is running, mum uses fans to help moves the air around. She doesn't do much outside. She did go to a thing at the library and this tall guy with a funny hat was there. Mum says he was acting as Honest Abe.
 When she got home she found me setting in the chair. She asked very nicely if she could sit with me and yep, I let her. First I just camped out on her lap, then I moved to the tower.
 I just moved on to the tower, into the little hut. I gave myself a nice bath, then a nap.

 Feetsball Report

The Pack - they started slow and were way behind. They caught up by the end of the game, so they had to play extra time. They won in the extra time. It was the hottest temperature ever at the start of the game in Green Bay.  Short week, they have to play Da Bears on Thursday night.

Have a good week everyone.

Saturday, September 23, 2017


Happy Caturday everyone. The hots are back and we are taking it easy these days. No open windows to let the hots in the house, fans running to move the air around and the air chiller is working!

 Sitting so nice with mum on the couch. Usually there is all this junk sitting between us, but not this time.
 So mum reached out to pet my floofy belleh! Yeah, I like that. I got more of belleh rubs this AM when mum first got up.
Flashy box strap, must attack! I got it too! Mum gently took it away from me. Says she needs it to be nice and not chewed up! Hey, I don't wreak things around here, I just play with them.

Well, mum has to take off and go get shot. Not the bad kind of shot but get her flu shot. Then she will be protected from the sickies this winter.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Garden Thursday - We Are LATE!

Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. Mum went off to sleep last night and didn't help us with our report. We will amember this for your purr-formance review.

Well, it was storming last night, so maybe that made her forgets, then again, maybe it is becuz she is an old, forgetful mum!

On to garden things. First, mum bought some mum flowers to put outside on Caturday. So we have something nice to look at in the fall. Mum put them at the bottom of the stand that holds the small fevver feeder.
 Here they were sitting inside the metal monster room for a bit. Besides the nice one that is already flowering good, the other two are more of a rust and maroon colors.
 So they had been sitting out when on Monday when mum got up she notice our local little bunneh by the flowers and the bunneh was eating them! Hey, stop that.
 Funny thing, it doesn't eat the actual flowers, just the stems. But if you biggify the pictures you can see the flowers on the ground, uneaten.
Then when mum got up this morning, she found the fevver bath knocked over. Likely the sqwerls did this. She will be out later to make it right. Plus you can see mum put the mum's on top of the little stand so the bunneh can't keep eating at them.
The sqwerls are getting a bit silly this time of year. Looking to put foods in places they can come back to visit and eat it later. Mum spied something last week out front. A black walnut, sitting on the stone ledge of the house! 
 Did you spy it in the picture above, or do we need to give you a closer pic? Here it is, just sitting in the sun.

 Even closer shot that same day above, then below a shot from Monday, it was still there. Likely the sqwerl forgots where he hid his foods!
 Hers is another one where it has broken into the outer and inner shell to eat the nut inside. Mum says they have to find these things far away and bring them here. We don't have a black walnut tree in our yard or even really close! She knows of one several blocks away.
So lots going on  here, sorry we were late, we blame mum!

See you next week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Pirate Day

Ahoy my mateys! Welcome to Pirate Day. Our cruise on the Good Ship Sassycat will be leaving soon. It will be smooth sailing, we will be avoiding all of the stormy areas.
 First I want to pay tribute to my late, grate bro, Derby. He was a mighty fine pirate and taught me all I know about pirate ships and guiding it on the high seas.
 So grab a hat to join in. We be searching for treasures on the high seas. Keep alert looking for any wayward ships that we can take over and plunder for goodies.
 Aye, I be having my pirate patch on. I have a mighty sharp eye for goodies and I think I spy a treasure chest ahead.
 Yep, treasures for us. We can cellybrate our good fortune, and get lots and lots of treats!
Day is off to a good start. Don't be afraid of the day. Iffn, you don't want to help our, well, ye be walkin' the plank!

ManCat Monday

As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat. - Ellen Perry Berkeley

No, mum is not my owner, she is my mum! I loves her and she loves me back. I trust her, she is so kind and gentle with me.

We had a nice weekend, it was warm, warm enuf that the air chiller kicked in so mum closed the windows until the sun went down. Today as we get to the evening on Sunday night it is getting cooler out again.

Mum was good and read all of her stuff for her class like a good girl. She left some stuff until Sunday, but it wasn't much to read. So she skimmed it. It was about planting seeds and rain barrels. 
I snoopervised from the top of the tower. I was having so much fun that mum took moovies of me instead of working on her reading.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - well they helped open a brand new stadium down in Hot-Lanta. All fancy and stuff. Unfortunately the Not Ready for Prime Time Packers team showed up. It wasn't pretty. They losted pretty big time.

Have a good week everyone.

Saturday, September 16, 2017


It's about time mum turned on the puter today. She has been reading the newsy paper about a trial here. Catching up on all the details on it.

First I want to send out purrs to Allie and Raz and their mum. Their bean dad went off to heaven the other day. If you haven't sent them any comforting purrs, please stop by to do so. Thanks.
It continues to be nice here. Open windows and warm. Warm enuf that the cold air thingy kicked in yesterday afternoon. So mum closed the windows until it cooled off a bit and the sun went away. The sun is sure setting earlier and earlier these days. Getting up later too. As long as the middle of the day hours are fine, then we are happy.

Happy weekend all.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Mum had her first Master Gardener class on Monday and look at all the stuff she brought home! The big binder in the back has all sort of stuff to read, the middle fat book is the text book. Then lots of hand outs. Plus they are supposed to get  another book next week!
 Here is the list of stuff she has to do each week. Just like going back to school for her. Mum was surprised at how many people were there. Her class is 75 peoples, the other night is 50 peoples.
Mum caught one of the sqwerls sneaking a drink from the fevver bath. Silly little guy. Plus she saw a deaded sqwerl a few weeks ago back by our gate to the trail. Mum just left him and he disappeared.

Plus Mr Haw has been paying us visits, three times in the past week. Mum got a picture of him up on the wires, he turned quick and almost got a sqwerl hopping along a different wire. Sqwerl only escaped by swinging down below the wire.
The a few days later, back to sit in the crabby apple tree, checking things out looking for something to pounce on for a meal.

Our weather has been beauty-full, which happens whens the nasty weather is down south. We are happy to report that all of our furiends and their bean are OK. Phew!

Thanks for stopping by, love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.
