Mini-ManCat Monday

Cats are so sleek and perfectly groomed, they can make one feel a little ashamed of one's appearance sometimes. - Author Unknown

Yeah, shape up lady. Although overall you probably aren't the worst dressed cat lady in the world. Your clothes are clean and you bathe.

However this cold/sinus/whatever is affecting your brain. My name is not Derky! That is what you called my Caturday night when you were letting me out of the closet. Derby and I do not look at all alike, other than both being feline. Sheesh.

On Sunday the lady took us outside in the little enclosure. At first we were both in it, Derby did not like that so he got sent inside. After a bit the lady changed places. At the end when I am inside the big windows, you can here me squeak!

The lady did mow the lawn on Sunday before she took us outside. Made her tired and cough lots. She had to rest and drink stuff so she could finish.
Here is our pink confetti tree, the crabby apple one. All in full bloom about 2 weeks earlier than it has ever bloomed. The lady checked last year and it didn't really bloom until May 15 last year. She looked a posts from past years, at this time some of the 'early' flowers were just starting to bloom like the hi-ya-cynths.
Close up of the pretty flowers.

Plus thanks to all who stopped over on Caturday for the horsies races. We did have fun, we even got in a bit of THoE, we can show those thoroughbreds how to run! But I don't want to run in the mud! Too much bath time required to get all clean again.

Have a good week everyone.


  1. Yoo two were so funny in the carrier! Ferst yoo wanted in, then yoo wanted owt, then one looked forlorn 'cos one was in and one was owt! That's just wot we do. Mom calls it, "not be able to make yer mind up!" Tee hee!

  2. Oh Derby we are so sorry we didn't make it by for Derby Day we hopes you had a wonderful day. Happy Belated Gotcha Day and Happy Mancat Monday Derby & Ducky.

  3. The leaves on the trees seem to be out a lot earlier here too.

  4. We're sorry we missed Derby Day! That's because our human doesn't blog on the weekends, the slacker.

    You guys were cute out in your little "tent." :-) Our wild Nicki would have had that thing rolling and rolling and rolling, though, and probably would have figured a way to get out of it and get free. Ha.

  5. That is a the coolest little enclosure! Safe for kitties, and they still can get a lot of fresh air! We loved your tiny little squeaks, too.

  6. Sometimes my girls act like that in their stroller, but usually calm down after a minute and enjoy the rest of the time outdoors...The tree and flowers look beautiful...Happy week handsome boys...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  7. We are so sorry we missed Derby Day... something about a class or other. Can you imagine?! Your trees look gorgeous.

  8. You guys look cute in your portable Porch. What a great way to get some safe "out" time.
    Naturally you wanted in/out, in/out, that's the way of the Cat.
    Mommy thinks your tree is gorgeous.

  10. Belated gotcha day wishes, Derby! I'm sorry we missed such a great party.

    Hope your mum feels better soon. Spring colds are miserable.

    And your tree is beeyootiful!

  11. We're sorry we missed Derby Day, too! (It was very early this year and we got confused!) Happy belated gotcha day!

    Liked your movie and hearing you and Ducky talk. And your trees, too--we have two skinny little crabby apple trees that had only about three blossoms on them this year.

  12. It's nice to get outside!
    We love it when we hear our friends voices.

  13. Derky!! Hahahahahaha...oh sorry, but...hahahahahaha!!

    Mom calls us by each other's names sometimes, but has never combined our names. Derby+Ducky=Derky!

  14. Uh-oh, I guess that was a little too much togetherness, eh boys?

  15. Ooh, pretty flowers! Are ya givin those ta Mom on Sunday?

  16. You have posted amazing picture of flowers. Flowers bring so much joy to those who have the time enjoy them.


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
