ManCat Monday

Natures abhors a vacuum, but not as much as a cat - Lee Entrekin

Yep, it was one of those weekends. Mum was home and she cleaned on Saturday, so the sucking monster was out and making lots of noise. If she was in one room I moved to the other end of the house. So it wasn't too bad and now the house is nice and clean. Plus she did all the shopping, the laundry and then went to the library for books.

That meant mum had an easy day on Sunday so we both chilled. Mum even took me outside in my portable porch. This is the firsted time she has done this so far this year. What took you so long mum?
Yeah, a nice stretch and roll looking at Virginger. We checked out all sorts of birdies, even the hummers were zipping around the yard.
There is PHE too, hi little dude, you look good with those flowers inside you.
But I have this weakness for flowers, if you biggify you can see my tooth trying to get through the mesh of the porch. I want to sample the flowers! Mum was worried that I was going to get my tooth caught forever, so she took me out of the porch. While she held me then she let me sample the flowers in one of the hanging baskets. Then she just cuddled me for a few minutes and then let me go back inside the house. I had me a snack and then a nice long nap.

Plus a Happy Purrthday to Miss Lynn.

Hi Derby!! Love the quote in your post! I'm glad you got to get out and enjoy a summer day. We've stopped having summer here in England but don't get me started on the weather.

Also, I appreciated your comment on the video because I, too, noticed that the kitty had a few little nails outstretched on the dog's nose. Made me laugh.

I love that portable porch!

Derby, looks like you are having fun in the porch. It has taken your mom a long time to let you out, I hope you get lots more visits outside.

I am allowed out anytime I want, but that is because it is pretty safe here in New Zealand. Believe it or not, i spend most of my time in the house anyways.

Smooches

We biggified and saw your big ferocious teeth.
Our summer only lasted two and a half weeks and now it is the same as the last two years, raining every day.
We don't think we know who Miss Lynn is, but happy purrfday to her.

Hi Derby,
I really like your viewing tent. It must be fun to sniff all the flowers and things.

Hope all is well with you and your mom. Have a great week!

You do seem to like your portable porch. Perhaps some day my humans will get me one (but they need a decent porch first... but it's on the list!)

Amy said...

That is a cool portable porch! And that was nice of your mom to take you out and let you have a little snack! Sounds like a great day!

The good thing about havin' a little blurp around, is da beans don't have as much time to clean! That looks like a nice outdoor condo ya got there!

The Island Cats said...

What a cool way to be outside! Whe I was little my mom would set up the dog crate that we have outside and put me in it. She wouldn't put the floor in, so I was able to be in the grass...now that was heaven...being able to munch on the grass!!!

The Kitty Krew said...

Your portable porch looks like fun! We're happy that your mom lets you go outside some, even if it's just in that thing. At least you keep safe!

Your tooth stuck in the side was funny... hahaha!

Purrs and hugs,

Derby, it sounds like you had a great weekend, except for the sucky monster. We love your outside porch.

Sucking monster??? Hahahaha... the Spice Cats hate it too, they run upstairs and hide.

Derby it looks like you had a really nice day outdoors. Mom wanted to take me out today and sit on her lap but Dad said no. So just had to do with looking out the screen of the sliding glass door. That screened porch looks like a nice thing to have. Hint hint Mom.

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

I especially love the plastic straps that come on some boxes. The Big Thing ties it in a clump of knots. That way I can bat it around before chewin on all the edges!
