ManCat Monday

Let the sun shine where I lay
Keep me young so I may play
And most of all, bless the people I adore,

And guard me from the dog next door.

Yep that is a good purrayer for all of us!

Mum was busy this past weekend. She raced around the house all Saturday morning doing stuff, like playing with the sucking monster, washing the laundry etc. Look at all my furs she picked up with the sucking monster.
Doing all sorts of stuff outside too. With all of the rain we had she had to clean out the birdie feeders. The seeds had started to sprout! So she dumped all of that stuff out and let the feeders dry in the sun. Then put them back with fresh seed for our little birdie furends.

She worked on the weeds in the garden too, says they grew furry fast this past week. She took some pictures of the plants, and then put some very tiny plants in this big pot. Do you see what that is, yes my furiends that is catnip. Mum planted some of my very own nip! Grow big little plants.
Then she went out and grilled her chickhen outside at lunch time, then she ate it outside too. I didn't get any!

But then mum got out my porch and took me outside! What fun! I got to visit with Virginger and PHE, who are guarding the catnip plants. We saw a hummer come to the feeder near us to feed, birdies and squirrels coming in and out of the yard.
Alert, a dove just landed! I gotta wait and see if it comes closer. Even outside I gotta keep my nice white paws clean. I could do that when I wasn't on alert for birdies.
Plus we were just sitting outside so nicely, sunny, warm not humid. Mum little weather radio starts going off! We had more bad storms coming! Thankfully they were brief and didn't leave much wet stuff, but really, we don't need any more wet stuff from the sky.

I took off and went to Gree & Othello's wedding shower in San Francisco. We had a good time in the City by the Bay. I even won a shower game, guessing three of Gree's favorite things. But with our wrong funny answers we came up with a new drink, Blue Tuna Gizzy - blue coolaid, tuna juice and champagne! You can even freeze it and eat it with a spoon. I think for short we will just call it a BT Gizzy.

After I got home there was a report on the news that two cable cars hit each other. Hmmm, Victor was being crazy driving a cable car, I hope it wasn't him. At least they did NOT report cats running away from the scene.

Sunday mum took Grampie out to eat for Father's Day, then they came home and messed about in the back yard for a bit. Mum got all dirty as usual. Hope everyone had a wonderful Dad's Day to all to whom it applies.
