Mini ManCat Monday

Happy is the home with at least one cat. - Italian Proverb
Hi, Ducky here. The lady said I can do ManCat Monday this week and when I do it it will be called Mini ManCat Monday since I am such a tiny boy. With the saying of the day, this must be a really happy house, 'cuz we now have two cats here. The lady says two in the maximum number of cats that will be here at the same time. The pose above lasted all of 2 minutes!

First, thank you for all of your kind words on my life story on Caturday. It is nice having a good home. I am happy I am not back at my first home too, much nicer here, specially the lady. Always crunchie foods, water and treats; pets, snuggles, purrs and hugs.

Second, as of last Friday night, the lady has left big kittie, Derby, and I together overnight. Up until then I always had the lady's sleepy room for just me and her. It was OK, I roamed around that night, but last night I spent most of my time with the lady anyway, sleeping on top of her legs.
So that means I am totally into the routine around here now. Caturday AM the lady got up and watched birdies out the back windows. I jumped up on her lap and watched with her. With our snow almost all gone, the lady says we are seeing birdies that come back north in the spring. Early last Wednesday morning we saw our first ever robin of the season, so they and other birds are back. That must mean spring is here.
Other nice thing this week, the lady said she will be home for a couple of extra days. Just chillin' and taking it easy with her two ManCats.

The only weird thing is that Derby thinks he has to eat all of the foods in every bowl. The bowl can be empty, he is not around and the lady will put some crunchies out for me. I swear Derby shows up within a minute to snarf down the foods. The lady told him he better watch out or he will get fat. He is a big cat compared to me anyway. I need my foods, I am a tiny boy.

Plus on Sunday I watched mum and some other bean cutting off part of a tree. The guy climbed up a ladder, climbed around in the tree and took off a few branches. This is not the same one that stole part of the tree a few weeks ago. The lady says she has nice peoples here that help her do stuff she can't do by herself. That is very nice.

Happy week every one.

Hi Ducky! You look very happy & content in those pics. I'm glad you got to watch birdies with your mommy. It is one of my favorite things to do.
We're seeing lotsa new birdies too. Mommy is boiling raisins and putting them out for the robins that are here. She splurged on dried mealworms the other day too.
I'm glad you and Derby are getting along better. It takes time, but you two will be good friends toon.
