ManCat Monday

A cat is an example of sophistication minus civilization. Anonymous

Today, according to mum, is a historic day that beans firsted walked up on the moon. I just look at the moon from the windows when it is up in the sky. Wow, that beans have actually been there and walked around.

Sorry I had a few people worried on my post on Friday. No, I wasn't going to the light in that I was heading off to The Bridge. Just recently mum was looking for me, and there I was, out in the open, but sitting in the sun. It made for a couple of neat pictures.

I have a question for you guys. Are you getting comments asking to link to you so they can make money or offering you money? I figure if they paid me a million green papers, that should about cover it. That would keep me in treats for a furry long time.

Chey and Gemini wanted to know if I enjoyed the calypso band concert, once we found it on the web. Yes I did, I was shaking my tail in time to the music.

Friday night just after mum went to lay down in the sleepy room, I jumped up in the open window and let out a really deep and long MERRROWWWWW. I did this several times, which made mum get up and look out the window with me. Of course she couldn't see anything, but then she went and turned on the light on the back of the house and just sat inside by the big windows that go to the floor. About 5 minutes later out from the flower bushes came an evil intruder kittie! See mum, I knew there was something out there! He/she? skulked off under the gate and disappeared. We rarely get wandering kitties, so this was a surprise.

Mum was busy outside this weekend painting part of the patio cover. She did the white paint part, getting three coats of paint on the wood. The blue stuff she will do soon. But since she was busy at home, she wasn't out looking at kittens anywhere!


  1. I remember the day that astronauts first walked on the Moon. I was very excited about it. Good for you for warning your Mom about the intruder kitty. I haven't gotten any of those comments about linking for money, but I haven't been blogging much lately, either. It sounds like your Mom is getting lots of work done.

  2. 40 years? Wow!

    Good call on the intruder. It's always a good idea to be on the look out. I haven't gotten any comments about linking for money either.

  3. I am taking SS's human vet's advice and go visit my ginger/orange kitty friends. You are kinda one!

    You see, the swine flu is bad here and SS says she is going to have a lot of oranges to keep up Vit C so that she would not catch the flu. I don't like oranges so I figure visiting furriends with orange coat would be the same.

  4. I haven't gotten any comments offering me money. It's a shame; I could do with some more ham.

  5. Keep her busy Derby and away from cute kittens. We like laying in sunbeams too. ~S,S,C & F

  6. We have had an email but without links asking us about putting an ad on our blog but we didn't reply. We had another one today offering us £200 for putting it on for a year. We don't want ads on our site and we are a bit worried about replying in case we suddenly get thousands of emails.
    Good work telling your mum about the introoder.

  7. We aren't getting comments like that at all. Derby, I wonder if that kitty has a home!

  8. I have been getting mails asking me to advertise too. Mum didn't do anything with them as was worried what it was all about.

    It does not seem that long since we first went to the moon. It is exciting now what is happening.

    I had a kitty introoder at my place too..

    Hugs GJ xx

  9. It's good that your mom wasn't off cheating on you this weekend, Derby. Keep her busy at home and you won't have to worry so much.

    We haven't gotten any comments about linking for money but we've seen some other spammy comments on other kitty blogs recently (somebody with a kitty toilet thing especially).

    Personally we would ignore and not reply to any comments or emails asking for links or ads that supposedly pay money, we doubt any are really trustworthy or at least make much money. Better safe than sorry.

    Purrs and hugs,

  10. My human remembers the day the People first walked on the Moon.

    We have no gotten comments but we also have a contact form. Now and then we get that and if they seem to be cat appropriate we have contacted people. The Cat Channel really did place an ad on our main site.

  11. Mom remembers the moon landing. (she's old). And she says yes, we've gotten 2 comments about ads. Mom just ignores them.

  12. Mom has gotten a couple of comments asking to place an ad, but Mom ignored it. A couple she has put on for free because of what it is, and they just asked for a link.

    It was good that you let your mom know there was an evil intruder kitty.

  13. Yep, Mom says she remembers the day when those guys put their paw prints on the moon. Sounds like you let out a meeoow like Cleo does when their is an intruder around our place. She must be pretty good like you cause that cat intruder hasn't been around our place lately. The Manager of the mobile home park has been trying to catch him lately cause he keeps marking and stinking up the place but he has eluded him time and time again.

    Oh Derby, I have been reading your posts and I think you just might get a brother or sister sooner or later. Sounds like your mum is looking out for just the right one. No we haven't gotten anything on linking for money either.


  14. You're a good guard cat, Derby. Your mum must feel awful safe.

  15. Yup, we have had those comments that come from funny blogs that want to link to you. We are ignoring them, as none of them seem high quality.

    Thanks for visiting me Derby, it was nice to hear from you.

  16. No comments offering money on our blog. We might have to take them up on it if it was really worth it, but we doubt it would be.

    Glad you aren't actually going toward the light...just basking in it!

    Meowm says the metal monster is okay. She saw her chiropratcor today and he is checking things out. he x-rayed her and she goes back tomorrow to see how things are.

  17. You look gorgeous in that picture Derby *blush*

    My mom got one of those but she just deleted it figuring it was probably trouble...especially since it didn't come from a cat blogger.

  18. our the mom remembers when the people walked on the moon. she was a wee kid bean at the time and just 'acited to stay up past her bed time!

  19. We have gotten some emails and comments that are spam (and not the tasty kind some kitties like) and we are trying to not post them. We don't like that but that is why we have the comments set to need aproval before posting. I think we may have let one slip by but I have to double check it.


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
