ManCat Monday

If you gave wings to a cat, it would not condescend to be a bird. It would be an angel. - Dick Shawn [1923-1987]
Don't I look angelic here? Yep, I do. All I need are my wings.

I was a good kittie on Sunday. I didn't do anything to wake mum up early. I let her sleep until she decided to get up. That was around 7:20 AM. She went to bed about 10:30 PM, so she nearly had 9 hours of sleep. She didn't even have to bribe me with some licks of her ice cream. Plus she took a short nap in the afternoon too on Sunday.
I had some good naps too on Sunday. I took over the bed while mum was washing the sheets. Me and Mr Bear snuggling on the bed, and I got a longer than usual nap as mum washed the sheets last instead of first!

Saturday mum went to have dinner with Miss Lynn. She brought a box home but I don't know what is inside yet. It didn't smell like much to me, no ham, chickhen etc. that I could detect.

It got cooler out again, so nice open window season. I love to sit in the windows and watch the birdies and such. When I get all 'acited I chitter and my tail wooshes back and forth.
Mum's ear is getting better. She says at times it feels completely normal, then for bits of time it feels a bit wonky yet. Not to worry she will be taking care of any issues that come up so this doesn't go on for a long time. If she needs to see the bean vet again, she will do so to make sure this all gets cleared up.
