ManCat Monday - Happy Purrthday Mum!

How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven. - Robert A. Heinlein
Here is a picture of Grampie and mum from last fall when they went up north. No they did not split all of that wood!

But today is a special day so that is why mum has her picture here, it is her purrthday. It is also Presidents Day and a Holliday and her company gives them today off. So mum doesn't have to go to work on her purrthday. She is happy about that!
Yesterday the raced the Daytoner 500, the first real crashcar race of the season. Mum sort of watch and I napped through it. We are happy, our local guy from Whiskerconsin, Matt Kenseth won the race. Yeah, they shortened it but, he was in front when it counted.

Mum also worked on her crow-shay, another blurpy blanket to be done for someone at work. She got lots done during the race, then we watch a bunch of shows on PBS about cats!

Urgent Purr request: Grampie just called mum. Uncle Stormie, mum's brofur, is in the hospital with a collapsed lung. He is getting treatment but will be in the hospital for a few days.

Oh, Derby! We'll purr for Uncle Stormie! Please wish your mom a happy birthday from all of us. Mom says they saw logs like those in Hearst, Canada. But they didn't saw any logs. Is that funny?

Oh, I really like your heart-tag on your collar, too Derby! I scratched my collar too much so Mom took it off. I didn't have a heart on it anyway.
Purrs,
Nina

Happy Purrday to your Mom. Our Humom's favorite writer is Heinlein. I am named after the cat in The Door Into Summer. We watched Napcar too, but all the crashes kept wakin' us up. Hope Uncle Stormie gets better soon.
