ManCat Monday

Cats know how to obtain food without labor, shelter without confinement, and love without penalties. Walter Lionel George

I think this is very true. I don't have to work to get my food, unlike mum who goes out and picks berries and earns green papers to pay for food. I get to run around the entire house, you can see me sleeping on mum's bed the other day. Love, well, it just flows and if for some reason I do something I shouldn't, like yak up on the floor, mum still loves me. Not a bad thing.

Once mum was done with the berry picking and all we had a quiet day on Sunday. Mum sat and readed her book, we watched the birdies outside. At one point they all scattered very quickly. We saw Mr. Hawk flying and chasing a dove. I was glad that the Piney Wood girls were not here today. It might have been scary to them if they haven't seen a hawk before. Mum says that if she is around it is not likely that the hawk would attack anything near us.

Plus we had a baby bun in the yard and all of a sudden it did a binky! Wow, that little bun got two feet off the ground. I have seen Fi and Lando do them, but I was expecting them. To see a bun just do it for fun was wild.

Mum says she is enjoying the berries she picked. The raspberry is her favorite summer berry!

Derby, I think that not having to work is going to end when you are vice president. We have so much to do. I think I'll go nap...

Ooo, baby Buns sound like fun! I sw a bigBun in the yard once, but it scooted off when it heard me saying 'hi, wanna stay for lunch?'.

Daisy said...

I wish I could have seen the bunny do the binky!

Angus said...

I've never seen a bun do a bink. But I do have lots of dove around here, and they keep chasin' my favorite fevver balls away from the feeder..send that Mr. Hawk my way!

My mom said "awwww how sweet" when she saw the beautiful picture of you on your mom's bed. My mom loves rasberrys too but she usually has to get them in a grocery store or farmers market.

Wow! You got to see a Hawk chasing a dove! I saw a Coopers Hawk chasing a sparrow and other tiny birds but I never saw one chasing a dove. Hope the dove won the chase and got away.
