ManCat Monday

You can't own a cat. The best you can do is be partners. - Sir Harry Swanson

Just a regular weekend here, the usual happened; mum did the laundry, cleaned, went out to eat twice with different furiends, but brought fish home to share!; shopped

On Saturday she was at the back door and was just about to go outside and I appeared wanting to go outside too. So mum scooped me up and out we went, mum would not let me walk around on my own, said it was too mushy in the grass. But as we enjoyed some of the afternoon sunshine and being just under the patio roof, the hawk swooped by! He landed on the back fence at most 30 feet from us! He didn't stay long and flew off where we could not see him.

But mum hugged me tight and said that is why I am not allowed to wander around by myself outside. Mr Hawk my think I am a good target to have for lunch! Mum left me sniff the dirt in the empty planters, soon we will have flowers again.
Mum moved my one bed to back by the big windows that go to the floor. In the late afternoon the sun comes in and gives me a nice spot to nap.
Plus mum read her book for a bit, I was trying to distract her so I could get some treats. I was successful, plus she finished reading this book too.

Sunday after she went shopping and was putting all of the stuffs away I was checking things out. Well I managed to get to get my head through the handles of the bag, mum realized this and reached out to get it off me, but I jumped down off the counter before she could reach me. What was in the bag was not heavy but it sort of scared me. I didn't realize that I had my head through the handle, and when I jumped I didn't expect the bag to come with me. But mum came right over and ripped the handle from around me and I took off. She managed to get to me before I really freaked out. Mum warns me when I get too close to the bags but I always gotta check them out. Guess I live dangerously.

Hi Derby,
That is a very nice bed by the window. The sun always feels nice on the furs.

You gotta watch those bags with handles. They sneak up on you!

That a great napping place by the window. Mr. Hawk may have been checking you out. It's a good thing that you don't go out by yourself. It must have been scary having that bag clunk down with you.

hey be careful around bags next time.

That is a nice sunspot for your bed. We are lucky that we don't have any hawks big enough to try and catch us. The biggest birds we have are Buzzards and they catch mice etc.
Watch out for bags trying to attack you in future.

Ah I love it when the bed gets hit with sun!

Anyway I do that with the grocery bags now and then... then I am chased around the house while she attempts to save me... sigh.

Thats nice of her to move your bed around like that!

We like to check the grocery bags out too. For some reason the beans get upset when we do. ~S,S,C & F

Oh my goodness! Stay far, far away from Mr. Hawk!

Max said...

Didja knock the book outta her hands? I would knocked the book away. Sometimes a guy has to do that to get what he needs...

I'm glad your Mom was there with you this weekend. It sounds like she saved you twice: from the hawk and the bag. Mom thinks it is funny and a little sad when we get our heads stuck in the bag handle.

We are glad your mama was there when Mr. Hawk came by. That would have been scary if you were out by yourself. Mom hates it when we play in bags because she is always afraid we are going to get stuck in them. You are lucky your mum was home.

I love that picture of you looking over your mom's book. Too cute.

I wish I could go outside sometimes, but I don't like to be picked up and we live 12 floors up! There must be a ton of good stuff to sniff.

Millie said...

Wowza, Derby, that sounds like an awfully exciting weekend. I don't go near bags for that same reason!

I do, however, hope the snow at my house disappears real soon!

Poppy Q said...

Derby I like that picture of you peeking over your mums book. Very cute.

What an exciting weekend! I love the picture of you distracting your mom from reading...go job! And you saw a Hawk! Wow, how exciting! Oh, My bro once got his head caught in the handle of one of our cloth grocery bags...I laughed myself silly...but he freaked out. Your mom did good getting to you before you freaked out too much.

William said...

Oh, my mom just loves your pictures, especially the one with the book!

Be careful with those tricky bags!

Cliff and Olivia said...

The book picture is awesome. Great strategy for treats.

We're sure your human was trying to protect the hawk from you and just being silly.
