Throw Back Thursday

HiYa everyone, hope all are doing fine. A little bummed as our super nice weather is going away. Mum has been walking around in bare feets, short sleeved shirts, and her shorter pants. Even the guy in the blue shorts actually had shorts on for two days.

Mum says we should be thankful that we did have nice weather at this time of year. It could be all snowy and cold. Plus mum says this brings us closer to the real spring. All of our snow has been gone for a week and we also see a tiny peak of spring bulbs peeking out.

Me, I just take advantage of the sun puddles to nap in.
Our throwback takes us way back to 2007 with Derby and his Fang Shui Friday post.

Fang Shui Friday

Mirrors should always be framed to contain their active energy. Unframed mirrors create dangerous energy.

The cat reflected in an unframed mirror is an evil doppelganger. Attack it immediately.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.
I don't attack the kitties in the mirror. I know it is me, I will just admire me and Vir-ginger too.
And then me and some of the squillions that we fostered last year. Remember Feb 28 is Squillion Day.

Lastly, I will announce my decision in regards to the ladies tomorrow.

ManCat Monday

As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind. - Cleveland Amory

Yeah, sometimes it takes furrever for our beans to figure out what we want. Foods, scritches, cuddling under the covers, treats or playtime.

I made my own playtime the other evening. Mum was working on making more of those pink hats. More? You only have one head mum. She said these are for other beans who are donating green papers to a human lady health thing.

So you can see me playing away here. 
 In other news, oh man has it been nice out. Open windows for me to sniff the wonderful fresh air and for mum to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
 Mum sitting outside with her funky shoes and laces. Well, not laces, but stretchy things that hold the shoe closed. That way mum can just pull on her shoes and not have to tie laces with her wonky fingers. She likes them.
 Grilled beast! This was a big chunk of beast so mum will have several meals from it. When it was done she cut off some pieces for me, along with some of the juices. YUMMY!
We have been watching for signs of spring. First, all of our snow is GONE! Second mum saw one of her spring birds, Mr Grackle. Plus she has been hearing a red winged blackbird, but hasn't seen it yet. Plus she heard sand hill cranes on Sunday afternoon.

Mum says we are likely to get more winter like weather, but we are happy to get this lovely bit of days now to enjoy. Mum goes out walking with short sleeves and no jacket!

Everyone have a good week.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday! It is going to be another beautymous day here. Sunny and warms! Mum has had the windows open a bit the past few days. She was even sitting outside for a while on Friday in the sunshine.

I had lots happen to me. Thursday might have been mum's purrthday, but she had a surprize for me. She hauled me off to see the vet man!

Now this wasn't the same place I have normally been to see the vet man. Actually, as mum carried me inside, it was where I stayed last fall when mum went to see Uncle Stormy in the OK state. They have vet clinic, boarding, grooming and even doggie day care there.
 Mum got me inside and made sure I was faced away from the woofie waiting. When mum said she wanted to make sure the woofie and I didn't see each other, the checking in person went to get this little fleece to put over the carrier. She also said it was infused with Feliway.
 Mum let me sit with the fleece as we waited. Actually we got to wait inside the exam room. No sitting out in the lobby waiting. That was nice, then I didn't have to worry about other woofies or sticky little peoples.
 I just stayed pretty much in one place. Just chilling out until the real action started. So they started with my weight. Right on what I normally weigh, I am in good form there. No diets for me. 
 Then I got the once over by Dr Tom. He was nice and gentle. Got the going over from head to tail and down to my paws. You can see him checking out my teeths and gums. Just a tiny spot on the other side, but not enuf to do a dental.
Another good thing, it was my year to get a rabies booster, but I didn't have to get a second shot for Feline Leukemia. The old place mum took me to stay required it, this place doesn't.Woohoo, one less shot.

So them mum paid the bill. Another good thing, they have it set up you can pay in the exam room. Then when you are done, zip, straight out to the car.

We got home and freedom from the PTU. Mum just let me wander a bit, but I showed her I wasn't mad at her and sat on her lap.

Happy weekend all!

Throw Back Thursday

First thing of the day is to wish my wonderful mum, Happy Purrthday. It is a special day as she can now sing this song and have it apply to her age.

When I'm 64 - cartoon version

When I'm 64 - actually sung by The Beatles

Don't know if she has anything special happening today. Like lunch out or stuff like that. Maybe she should just stay home with me and cuddle. I will purr on her all day.

Fang Shui Friday

Energy exits the home through an open window.

The wise cat will lie in the open window to absorb the energy before it leaves.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

It is a little cold to have open windows these days. But when they are open I loves to sit in the windows, and absorb the energy, thus keeping our house in harmony.

Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. I teleported down to be with my Princess. We had a nice day, just chatting and snuggling etc. It is strange, last year, I gotted my sweetheart, but no other kitties really paired up. But this year, love was definitely in the air. AAAACHOOO.

Plus, and a big drum roll here please. DRRRRRRDRRRRRRRDDRRRRRRRRR.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to my special sweetie Dora the Explorer. She is a wonderful lady cat and I do love her so.

Sending love and purrs to all of my furiends and their beans. Enjoy the day and cellybrate having someone to love.

ManCat Monday - It's My Gotcha Day!

There's no need for a piece of sculpture in a home that has a cat. - Wesley Bates

So a few nice pics of me and Derby, our sculpture pictures! Even if Derby is upside down, MOL. 
Plus this is the first pic mum ever took of me! It was taken while I was still in the shelter and I was deciding that she was the one for me.
Today me and mum are cellybrating being together seven, yep 7, years. So things have been good all these years. I love my mum and she loves me back. I know there are times I bug her when she is bizzy doing things, but she just laffs or tries to work around me. Yesterday she said it was hard to knit on her hat thing while I was on her lap.
 So grab a snack before you go, thanks for stopping by and cellybrating with me.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy weekend! Me and mum are just hanging out.

I promised Miss Megan a moovie with me and I have come through. Mum had this where I was sitting on her lap and I was getting all sorts of scritches. It was so nice.
Happy Weekend everyone.

Throw Back Thursday

HiYa Ducky here. I would like to say Groovy back at everyone. That isn't a word I hear often. Mum had to explain about way back when and that word and lava lamps.

Miss Megan complained there was no me in the groovy moovie. Mum says she will correct that. Tune in on Caturday. 

Unlike our throwback, it is not warm here today. Monday was super nice, spring like. Yesterday and today are cold! Mum says the nicer warms will be back tomorrow. Maybe it will be nice enuf to have open windows!

His mind is like a steel trap--full of mice. - Foghorn Leghorn

No mice around here, my mind is full of. . . . . fresh air.
Not quite as warm as yesterday, but mum did open the window for a little bit for me again. Ahhh, more fresh air.
Angus Mohr was very observant of the picture above yesterday that the time on the tempy thing did not match the clock! Nope mum does not reset the time on the tempy thing, it is always on daylight slaving time. In another month it will be correct.

Grampie has a crazy Cardinal fevver that comes by outside his bedroom window. He is on the second floor and there is a tree right outside the window.
You can see the birdie sitting in the tree, then it goes crazy and....
CRASH! He flies right into Grampies window, over and over and over and over again. He starts early in the morning and wakes Grampie up and keeps it up off and on all day until the sun moves away from his side of the building. Grampie and mum think that the birdie sees himself in the window and is trying to scare it off! Silly bird doesn't realize it is fighting itself.

I also hope that any of my cat buds who live down under are OK. Lots of scary fires, everyone stay safe.

Tuesday This and That

Seemed liked spring yesterday, warmish, sunny. Today warmish, rainy, misty, foggy. Going to get cold for a couple of days. Mum was a good purrson and went walking. Said she got lazy during January and didn't get out as much as she should.
 Working on a dangle here. I can warm my paw up as there is enuf room to put it down next to the hammick and down by the heaty spot. Sometimes I rest my paws on top of the heaty spot.

Mum has been bringing up boxes from the dungeon. Some of the stuff is getting tossed or recycled (old paper stuff from work). Then she found these two things. Lava lamps she calls them.
Yeah, it is better to see this in motion. So I got mum to make a moovie! She even put some crazy music on the moovie.

Tomorrow Never Knows by The Beatles

Turn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.
Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being
Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing
And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is

If a cat does something, we call it instinct; if we do the same thing, for the same reason, we call it intelligence. - Will Cuppy

Intelligence? Yeah I think we cats have it. That is why we have you wrapped around our paws. Our humans wait on us for what we need. You humans are the ones that go off to day hunt and such, working so hard and complaining. Well, at least mum isn't off to day hunt anymore, she is much happier staying home with me.
We had a nice sunny day on Sunday so I took advantage of it by spending it in the front window in the morning.
Then in the afternoon as me and mum were sitting in the back watching outside. We noticed the sun has come back so that it was hitting the edge of the windows! That means I can soon be napping in the back in the sun.
Me and mum didn't watch the Stouper Bowl. She did record it to watch the commercials later. Otherwise we watched Victoria and other stuff on PBS. Plus used the time to mooch lots of treats off of mum.

Saturday, February 4, 2017


HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday! It has been bright and sunny but coldish. But inside it is nice and warms. 
 So here I am hanging on in the front window soaking up the warms from the sun. It is so nice to jsut lay here and soak up with warms.
 Then if I want  more warms, I come back and get on top of mum and soak up her warms too. Above you can see the bits of stripes from the sun. Below I am putting my head on top of mum boobitty pillows. They are nice and soft to put my head.
 Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Throw Back Thursday

Happy Groundhogs Day. Today we see if a rodent can predict the weather any better than the human weather guessers. It is supposed to be sunny, so probably will see its shadow.
Today's flashback is from 2012 and includes me and well as Derby. I was just hanging out when Derby decided he had to nap where I was.

Thursday February 2, 2012

Two Cats, One Bed

Can't a cat get a place to nap, all by himself!?

Mum has now moved the other donut bed that was by her sleepy spot, out to the living room. Now we have our own spots to nap in. Thank goodness.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. Mr Winter has decided to pay us a visit, getting colder and getting snow. Monday it started out all sunny by afternoon, we had snow. Then more snow overnight and the weather guesser says more snow tonight.

 Plus mum made herself a hat, called it a pussy cat hat. OK, yeah, it sorta has ears. You do look better with it pulled over your head.
Silly mum!

ManCat Monday

Cats always know whether people like or dislike them. They do not always care enough to do anything about it. - Winifred Carriere

I know mum likes me, or rather that she loves me! She treats me so nice and I am nice to her too. I keep her warm at night, I crawl under the covers!
 Her you can see mum giving me all sorts of smooches. Me sitting where I like to sit, on her boobities!

Mum watched no feetsball this weekend, but she did watch some racy cars. Some crazy race where they keep going for a whole day! Mum even had furiends that went down to watch.

Almost at the end of the month, gosh, where has the time gone!

Saturday, January 28, 2017


HiYa, Ducky here. Happy weekend. More clouds and cold. We haven' seen the sun much for the past week. Sometimes just a tiny bit, but not a bright sunny, all day sun. Plus we did get some snow, but not as much as the weather guessers, guessed!

So me and me are just hanging out inside. She has her big fat book to read and she has been checking out her ancestors. I don't know why, other than she is curious. Me, I don't know who my mum and dad were. I don't have a paper telling me that like some of you fancy cats have. That is OK, I am happy being who I am. Mum says she is about done with this. But she has gotten hundreds of years back to people who are likely related to her.
 Mum got one of her magazines and it had a coloring chart on the cover, with a color cover underneath. She saved the cover to color someday. I has helping to check it out.
 Me, licking mum's plate cuz it had BUTTER on it. Mum won't let me lick in the butter dish, but she will let me do the puddles that show up on her plate.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Throw Back Thursday

Hello and welcome to Thursday. We had a tiny bit of snow so our ground is white. But the weather guesser was a bit off which made mum happy. Less snow during the day, now the guesser guy is saying it will come overnight, tonight. We shall see!
 Me and mum just hung out yesterday. Watched the snow, the fevvers. The biggest thing mum did was to get the garbage and recycling out to the street for pickup. The recycling thing is full, it has to go out.

Today's Throw Back takes us back to 2009 with Derby. Just hanging out with mum.

ManCat Monday

If a dog jumps into your lap it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing it is because your lap is warmer. - A. N. Whitehead
Well I am not exactly 'on' mum's lap but sitting between her legs. But I can tell by the picture that this was taken during warmer weather as mum has her short legged pants on! Mum does keep it warm enough in the house for us to be nice and comfortable, even when it is cold and nasty outside. Plus I can nap in front of the various heaty spots.

We just hung out this weekend. Mum went out to Grampie's to make sure his TV will work in three weeks with the digital conversion. His converter box works fine but the place where he lives has to tweak something as he is missing two channels that he likes to watch. We know it works as all of the other digital channels are there.

Mr Hawk made a visit this weekend sitting in our crabby apple tree for a few minutes. Mum didn't get a picture of him but he flew by and landed just where we could see his tail fevvers. All of the little birds had flown off and were safe.

Feetsball Report

There was no feetsball this weekend! But just wait until next weekend with the Stouper Bowl for the last meaningful game of the season.

But mum did watch a tiny bit of a car race that went on for a whole day. She watched the start on Saturday and they didn't finish until Sunday. What was exciting is that normally these races aren't even close at the finish, whoever wins wins by a lap or two. This year in the last 45 minutes of the race a pass came to change the lead and the two cars were close to each other right up to the end. The racing season has begun.
