ManCat Monday

Cats are peaceful and tranquil - they bring calmness with their serene personalities - Chris Evert
Yeah we are peaceful, except when we are not. Playing THoE or just chasing imagined prey around the house. Putting the bitey on our beans. Chasing the red dot.

Well we are into a new year. Mum finished her big fat book on New Year's night, now she is cracking on the blurpy blankie. She only had three stripes done when she restarted, she got 1 and a half more done when she took the picture Caturday night. Now she should have done by the end of Sunday 6 stripes.

There are a total of 20 stripes that gotta be done, plus the edging. Mum says with the feetsball playoffs she will have time to work and get this done. The blurpy will be here in April. Mum says Grampie told her they found out it will be a girl, so Uncle Stormie, who will be the Grampie to this new blurpy is calling it "Tinkerbell". Mum says she needs to find a Tinkerbell toy to include with the blankie.
I figured I can help too by sitting on it and getting it furrified. The little blurpy thing will have a kittie to live with, might as well get the blankie broken in by a kittie.
Mum also took the Christmouse tree down, along with the other decorations. The snow guys are still out, but then there is still snow on the ground. I must be slipping, I haven't even knocked them down off the top of the TV this year.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - They won, beating the Cardinals. They will play next weekend in the play offs and, deja vu, play the Cardinals.

Brett and Them Vikings - Beat the Giant guys who haven't been playing well. Heading for the playoffs as the #2 seed and get next weekend off. If the Pack wins next weekend, then they will play the Vikes.

The Colts - Lost playing in the snow at Buffalo, didn't play all of the good guys again this game. Heading for the playoffs and the #1 seed and gets next weekend off.

My boys Spider loves to run off with the knitting needles and all the wool.

The blankie is looking pawsome!

The blankie is lovely - Mom made some good progress and I think for sure she can finish by April.

Feetsball is funny this year - the Jets and the Bengals get to play again next weekend. The Bengals must have been taking a rest or something last night. The game was a total shutout.

I think you are a big help. I love it when the Woman works with yarn. It's great fun to help with that...

What a lovely blankie; get it furred really good so the blurpy gets used to kitties!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That is an awesome looking blankie - it is good you are getting it all furred up well for the new blurpy! That way she will have your good kitty smell to comfort her. And we think Tinkerbell is a great nickname for her!!

I think breaking in the blurpy's blanket is a wonderful idea. I heard somewhere that if babies grow up with kitties from birth they never develop allergies to us. Don't know if that is true.

Breaking in a blanket, especially one being given as a gift, is very important. Cat furs bring good luck.

Playing THoE, can't beat that.

Thats good shes making progress on the blankie! And you're doing a great job getting it furrified!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a pretty blankie and your furrs will make it even better.

Derby, thank you so much for your kind words of comfort to us on the loss of our darling Angel. It means so much that you cared about us at such a sad time.

All the best to your for 2010

I just tell you this story to let you know that sometimes cats do show up after they have been missing for such a long time! Chin up--it will be ok and just to let you know--you have done nothing wrong--she would not run away for you scolding her--cats live in the now--she was only mad at the time you scolded her.

Thanks for the football updates. I think the Colts are not playing the good players cause they don't want anyone to get hurt. That would be terrible to get that close to playing and not be able to for some ole dumb reason of a hurt or something.
Looks like the blanket is coming along just fine. Your mom will have it done in no time at all. Think it is nice that you are breaking it in for the wee one. Good idea.

playing with imaginary toys is pawsome -

A male cat is called a tomcat. it doesn't matter whether it catches birds, mice, or nothing at all. the other cat considered your garden his territory, so he keeps coming back in hopes your cat is gone.
