ManCat Monday

Maybe in the future we should add one more question to those we ask of presidential candidates - we should ask them where they stand on cats. Better still we should demand to see the cats these candidates say they raised, just to make sure we are not having the fur pulled over our eyes - Gilbert Guide.
Nothing much would happen if you asked, when Cheysuli and I ran for the president and vice president in 2008, they acted like we didn't exist. They would just lie.

Mum was reading a book and found a furry good quote.

"Beware the earnest, articulate person who has nothing to say and will not stop saying it."

Mum says that would apply to all policital persons, but the first person she thought of when she read that was Sarah P.

But enough about people and on to me!
I had a good weekend, mum was home the whole weekend, she did lots and lots of laundry and hung most of it outside to dry. All of the stuff on her bed was outside and does it smell delish. Even mum thinks it smells delish.

Ducky and I had a bunch of wrasslin' matches over the weekend. I won! I had the squirt pinned down really good, them mum saw me and told me to get off of him. Sheesh, that is the whole point to squish him good.

Ducky is an odd duck too. He was eating mum's popcorn on Sunday, she had her little bowl of popcorn, he jumped up on the chair where she was sitting and took a piece. Then mum fed him a couple more pieces from her hand. He took those, but won't take a Greenie from her hand. Odd duck indeed. But we had some good other stuff to eat, bits of chick-hen, ham and fishy.

We had lots of sun but rather cool air, so mum kept the windows shut, there was even some bit of frosting on the houses on Sunday morning.

Hope all have good week, I gotta see if I can get Ducky good again this week. SQUISH!

Ducky and Artemisia apparently have a lot in common. Artemisia will not eat Greenies from Mom's hand. She eats chicken, cheese and other stuff from Mommy's hand though. And she will eat the Greenies if they are in the food bowl.

We can't pin the wiggle worm Artemisia though. Good for you pinning Ducky. ~AFSS

Have a great week both of yoo.

Daisy said...

I love popcorns!

Kea said...

LOL, Derby! It seems you had a very good weekend. Try not to squish Ducky TOO much, though. ;-)

KarenMcG said...

You two seem to have a good spot in the sun there for spending your day. And for sharing your wisdom.

We love popcorn, but never get any. Good luck squishing Ducky--just not too much, OK?

Squishing younger silbings may come back to bite you in the fugure!!
Our Yukon loves popcorn! But only one or two pieces at the most.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Yes Derby, you are so right. You know I am little concerned about the "stand on cats". I would hate to have a person standing on me...

Busby and Raymond said...

Sounds like everyone had a good weekend at your house! xoxo

We are very big on squishing each other! Our cousin-cat, Lucyfur, lives in Janesville.

Popcorn, Ducky??

Very interesting...

May have to try this one!

William said...

My old bro Eddie loved popcorn, too. How weird is that?

Eric and Flynn said...

Eric squishes me too.

Pierro said...

earnest and articulate I can deal with just fine, it is hubris that really gets my tail puffed.

well, I am glad that both of you had a very nice week-end. I hope you had sunshine today.

bonkbonks to both of you

SophieKitty said...

Seems like you guys had an action-packed weekend. Sounds you got lots of noms too!

Cory said...

Us kitties have never tried popcorn! Grete woofie eats it though...and wants mom to throw it to her piece by buttery piece!

You brothers look so cute together.

The Island Cats said...

Sounds like Ducky has earned his name!! Good luck squishing him this week!

MoMo said...

We love your quote. Sarah P is not our favourite, enough said.

Derby, if you want to squish Ducky good, do it soon, before he is big enough to squish you!

Ayla and Iza, said...

Wde agree! Anny good leader should love cats.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We don't even think she's particularily articulate either.

Your Mum did get some great cleaning done!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That is funny because Lola is the opposite - she will only eat treats from our mom's hand, not from the floor, or couch or wherever else she leaves them!

We hope you are having a good week so far - not too much squishing!

The Furry Bambinos said...

We like to have wrasslin' matches too! First, we chase each other all over the house THoE style!

Mom says she agrees with your Mom about Sarah P. :-)

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

hmmm, mrs P is earnest, but the articulate part...we haff to disagree.

You two sound like you are welcoming in spring in a very fine manner...spring fever, with fevvers?? hahameow
