ManCat Monday

If your cat favors the left paw, chances are good that it possesses psychic ability to some extent. - Dr. David Greene
Sorry I am a right pawed kittie so I guess I am not a psychic. I can't fortell your future, sorry.

Didn't we have fun with our Derby Day Party? The gang came over and we had our own races, basically THOE, to one end of the house and back, then up and down the stairs to the dungeon.

Lots of purrs for Eight Belles, she was helped to The Bridge right after the race. I hope all of our furiends up their made her welcome. Maybe she and Barbaro can make wonderful race horses in heaven. Oh yeah a horsie named Big Brown won the roses.

Mum did it again this weekend. She left me alone to go play in traffic again. Mum said she and her friends watched the Derby race and had a mint julep to make it official. But they gotted all bummed with the after race stuff. They all picked a horse and mum had Eight Belles, so she was really bummed. But she explained to me the the horsie would have never recovered from such a bad injury. So the VET's did the best thing for her.

Race in Peace Eight Belles.

Mom does not watch the races anymore since seeing something like what happened to Eight Belles in Europe TV. It was so sad.

Yeah, Snap even left a commentary on Eight Belles on MY blog. I still don't see why I have to share with the horse.

It was a sad ending to the race and must have been hard to witness in person.

We are sorry your mum went to go play in traffic. Our mom went to go watch birds make thunder. She said they weren't the eating kind of birds, and they were too fast for us to catch. We hope you had fun at your party.
