ManCat Monday

Which is more beautiful: feline movement or feline stillness? - Elizabeth Hamilton

Why choose? We run and jump,
then we nap.
Oh behalf of Grampie I thank you for the purrthday wishes for him.Yes he look pretty good for an old guy, most people don't think he is as old as he is. Mum can only wish she looks that good at that age, if she gets to that age.

BTW, Grampie does not live with us, he is in a place that is just for seniors, an independent living place. They cook one meal a day for them, which they eat in a nice dining room. But you have to be good enough to do your other two meals, take care of yourself with getting dressed and such. He is only about 15 minutes away so close enough to get him over here or for mum to stop over there.

Feetball Report

The Pack - They Win

Brett the Viking - They win

This sets up a showdown next week Monday on Monday Night Feetsball.

The Colts - playing Sunday night, they is winning now. Mum doesn't think she will stay up for the end.

Mum is bummed, she was watching the PBS show on the parks and the feed just stopped a couple of times for several minutes.

Dr Derby, Still on Call

Well, mum's sniffy, sneezies is now coughy, scratchy, squeekey voice. She sounds funny when she talks. It is getting better, she is sleeping more, but still not 100%. Drinking lots of orange stuff, morning and night.

My paws are full purring on her and making her go to beds on time. Gandalf, Grayson and Whitey said my video put their mum to sleeep, maybe I need mum to watch it a few more times.

ManCat Monday with Movie

Cats can work out mathematically the exact place to sit that will casue the most inconvenience. - Pam Brown

We just like to be in the middle of it all, nothing more than that.

I have been busy this past week keeping track of mum. She has the sniffy, sneezies, hasn't been sleeping well at night. That means she is all tired and crabilated when she comes home from day hunting. Caturday she took two naps! Sunday, she didn't do much more than she absolutely had to.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - Lost, the O line needs HELP! Mr Eighty Five on the opposing team had a pathetic attempt of a leap at Lambeau.

Brett and the Vikings - beat the Lions, I would certainly hopes so.

The Colts - Don't play until Monday

Movie on Monday

One thing that mum did work on yesterday was to start making some more movies of the stuff she has taken of me. So every couple of weeks I will share them with you.

Me sitting in the front window last weekend, warm, open windows, just enjoying the last bits of good summer weather. We is finally getting some rain now after three weeks of having no rain and really nice temperatures for this time of the year.

Meow Like a Pirate Day & Catwalk Caturday

Hi Matey's! Pirate Dread Vane here. Today has been declared it 'Meow Like a Pirate Day'. So I am! I have put on my pirate eye patch and done my nice deep meowrrrr.

Dread Pirate Vane

Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!

Get your own pirate name from
part of the network
So you better join in, or you will be walking the plank from the Good Ship Sassycat! Now it is time to hoist a few brews and toast the pirate brigade. Arrrgh, Mateys's.

Now Misha, is also having Catwalk Caturday, wants us to post something of the following:

"Do a fashionable post to be in to win. You can dress up in an outfit or go au natural and show off your gorgeous furs. We’re looking for the fiercest pose and best cattitude!"

I will go my my classic pose, of a classic cat sitting in a window. Just a handsome mancat.

Mucho thanks to Zoolatry for the graphics as ususal.

Hidey Spot

This is my new hidey spot. When it was a noisey rain a few weeks ago, I did't like it and ran behind the couch. Mum then didn't see me until she looked UNDER the couch.
With the little skirt down you can't see underneath directly and a bean has to get down on their hands and knees to see under.But mum lifted it up and there I was, this picture was taken after the fact, I had left my hidey spot. This is a recliner love seat so there is a bunch of room for me to move into. But my hidey spot didn't last long, as a secret. Guess I will have to find a new one!
Maybe I will move back to the shredded paper collector box!

ManCat Monday

The cat is the only animal which accepts the comforts but rejects the bondage of domesticity. Georges Louis Leclerc de Buffon

Ah, yes the comforts of home. Foods, nice places to nap, scritches, but gosh I sure wish I could get outside the house. Mum caught me trying to get out around Grampie's legs when he was over yesterday afternoon. Sheesh, mum is too quick for me!

Mum and Grampie didn't watch much feetsball during the daytime, said it was too nice a day to stay inside and watch the moving picture box. But the Packer game was after dark so mum watched, cheered, yelled, moaned. We could even hear the neighbors cheering too at the end of the game.

Packer versus Da Bears - WE WIN!!!!

Brett and the Vikings - they won

The Colts - they won

I is exhausted! All the purring and cheering for The Pack, but they pulled it off. Tied for first with The Vikings.

Patriot Day

Honoring all who died.
Honoring all who serve, protect and defend.

May we never forget.

Mo' Cat Day

I think the 'No Cat Day' is a typo. It is supposed to be 'Mo' Cat Day'. So here is mo' of me!

And for the silly purrson who things that there should be a day without cats on the innerwebs, I show you my 'tocks.

Thank you

Mum and I thank you very much for your kind words on our first video. Mum will have to work through some more, or maybe just post the short snips that she gets of me!
As you can see the movie box is close by most of the time. She has stuff taken, but needs to edit stuff. She has an idea for the next movie, but needs time to work on it.

Mum also thanks you for saying her painting looks good. She tries hard, Grampie was impressed but she does get a bit messy when she does this. Here is a picture of her shirt, all those blue blotches are from this weekend. She blacked out the logo of her old company, she figured she could mess this shirt up, she doesn't work there anymore.
So on Monday mum and Grampie sat under the patio, me inside and we all just chilled. The most work mum did was to fix lunch and dinner.

ManCat Monday - World Premier

Of all the 36 alternatives, the best is to run away - Chinese Proverb

A few weeks ago I told you mum bought some stuff to help out a bean at work with a brain tumor. Well I showed you the bread and soup mix, but here is the other thing she got!

Yep, a mini movie camera. She managed to get it for less than it would have cost her in a store, plus she outbid her boss by one green paper. He wasn't mad about it though.

So mum has taken some moving pictures of me and figured out, at least a little bit on how to make a movie.

I hope the movie works right, sometimes it wants to stop in the middle, don't know why.

So my World Movie Premier, which fits with our Ham Tour!

She was busy all weekend doing other stuff. Mainly painting our patio! She came home early from day hunting on Friday, they let them out early for the weekened. So she got busy, moved all of the chairs out and took a before picture.
Here it is before she stared, all splotchy and dirty looking
First coat of paint, you can really tell the difference!
First coat done on Friday evening.
Second coat done by Saturday afternoon.
Me, snoopervising from inside the big windows that go to the floor. I think she did an OK job.

Happy Monday Holiday to my fellow US kitties.Mum and I are just going to chillax' today and with Grampie over for a bit. She was busy enough with the painting, I guess I will agree to let her rest.

Werld Ham Tour

Oooofff, I am stuffed tonight. I love ham and I gots my fill today at the Smith Fields ham making spot. I am glad I can sit in the back of the weener mobile and sleep.

Let's see, our tour guide say we go see a Porkyopolus place by Mr Hendrix on Friday, then off to Wiskerconsin to the Oscar M Plant. We can't tour the plant near me, that is the one that burned a couple of months ago.

Miles and Victor a doing a great job on this tour. I better get a nap in, tomorrow will be a busy day.

Well I ususally don't have to steal 'cuz mum will ususally give me little bit of what she is eating if she thinks I would like it.

But I have gotten close to inspect while she is cooking a few times, lick the mushroom soup lids and such. But here mum was making soup....
Coming by the containers ready to get taken over to Grampie.
A bowl for mum with little crackers floating in it.
Me licking the last of the milk and cheese stuff from the bowl. Yum.

I tag anyone who wants to play along as I have to get prepared to go on the Hams of the Werld with Victor, Miles and anyother kittie that is joining in. Gotta be prepared to telly port over to Auntie Deb's first thing in the AM! See ya there.
