ManCat Monday

In the middle of a world that had always been a bit mad, the cat walks with confidence. - Rosanne Amberson
I had a quiet weekend. Lots of watching birdies, napping and just chillaxin'. Mum went off to play with racy cars but she came home to sleeps. So she had a busy weekend of chasing all over the track. This was the annual Cat National, you can go here to learn more about the cat. Plus it was the Ruby Cat national as they had some special cars cellybrating that they have been around for 40 years. Mum says the cars are Formula Fords.
This picture looks back to the 'bottom' of the territory they cover.
This is the top of the territory they had to cover, plus mum said they have to climb over those big blocks on the left. Mum says she can still make it! A couple of the races they had to line up had either 88 or 111 cars in them! Mum says that is a lot of cars.
Late on both days they got some rain, but Sunday it managed to mess up the actual races, but mum says they race rain or shine, so you better come prepared.
With all of the walking around mum says her feets hurt, pounding on mostly hot pavement all day her feets hurt, so she is sitting with them 'toes up'.
She wore her pedometer, this is her total for just Sunday. Mum says that is over 5.5 miles!

varoooooooooom! I don't like cars cause every time I'm in one I'm on my way to the VET. Lotsa beans do tho. I don't get it.

I'm glad you had a great weekend! I envy your wren family. Mommy wants to put up bird houses, but we have such a racccon problem that they would have to be on a post and baffled and we don't have the green papers right now. Hopefully next year.

Enjoy watching the little boogers grow!

Thanks very much for the kind words of welcome for our little Joel. We are so happy to have him home. purrrrs

We are glad your mum had a good weekend, but all that walking has tired us out.

It sounds like your mum had a busy weekend. We think she needs to spend a couple of days home with you now so she can recover, and so you can get your missing Mum time.

The Meezers said...

The Island Cats said...

Wow! No wonder your mom feets hurt! We hope they feel better soon!

HotMBC aka The Hotties said...

I think you had the better idea to lay around and relax and nap. All those steps seems like way too much.
Purrrrrrs,
your bud Pepi

That's a lot of walking. Moth cannot do something like that right now as her right leg is hurting.
Best the next day you all rested up.
