ManCat Monday

"Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow." - Jeff Valdez

At least this guys recognizes our intelligence. What would be better is if we could get eight doggies to pull a sled in the snow that is full of kitties! Now that would be good. We could all snuggle in the sled together and watch the snow fly by!
The picture of the day is currently mum's desktop on the 'puter. She selected an image and it sized it so just my face shows up! Look at those thoughtful and caring eyes. Plus you can clear see my two-toned nose! But I look so serious here, must have been getting ready to put the bitely on mum, enough with the photo ops!

Lots of headbumps and purrs to Diva Kitty, the fluffies and DKM on the loss of Joaquin: plus MC, Missy and ML on losing Bear. Our thoughts are with you.

Plus a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to two of mum's friends - Barb and Jane. I have met them both and they are furry nice and have had kitties of their own. Bandit and Magic.

Derby that is a very excellent picture of you. It points out all of the features that make you a handsome mancat! You look serious, but I think it just shows how thoughtful and intelligent you are.

I'm glad to see that spring is coming back to you and that your flowers are showing promise! And Harlie was relieved to see you with some yuck on your fur. It happens to her all the time because she always needs to be right in the middle of everything checking it out. She is just glad to know she's not the only one to get messy sometimes, and it even happens to kitties she admires!

Daisy said...

Derby, you often have a very thoughtful expression on your face. I think that's why you are so photogenic.

Kim and Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

Mommy really loves the photo! Your eyes are so beautiful! And the qoute and your interjection are hysterical!

Furry hansome! An' smart lookin' too.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

You look all nice and sweet there yet Manly too. We thinks that picshure makes a great background as well.

One-Eyed Jack said...

That would be sweet! Just don't get eight dogs to pull the sled with your mail on it. We think the Man in Blue Shorts uses one uses a dog-sled to deliver mail in the winter and it take forever to get here. If it comes at all. I think the dogs eat the mail sometimes.

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Yup...we gotta make the dogs our slaves to do our bidding.
Excellent picture of you on the computer.

That's a furry good pictor, Derby. Mom would rub that white streak on yur forehead until it left a dent in yur skull... um, I think she means that in a nice way.

Haf yur Mom send us an email wif yur addressy so we can send you a purrize. We gots 4 winners, but that's okay. At least they's all in the USA this time. One time was Singapurr an Hawaii!

You look incredibly handsome in that Mancat picture, Derby. No wonder your Mum chose it for her screen saver!

Derby, this is a very good picture of you. You look so handsome in it. What's wrong with looking serious? Sometimes we have to be serious, actually I think you look intelligent.

What a nice picture! (Nammie and Stewie know what you mean about the bitely; the family would also know what you mean!)
Oh yes, cats are smarter than dogs. I know this because I have two specimens in my own home.

What a fantastic ManCat picture. I can tell how bright you are just by how you write but your face also looks like you frequently have deep kitty thoughts.

PrincessMia said...

I like this picture Derby, it shows off the lovely spots on your nose.
