ManCat Monday

Confront a child, a puppy, and a kitten with sudden danger; the child will turn instinctively for assistance, the puppy will grovel in abject submission, the kitten will brace its tiny body for a frantic resistance. - Saki

First, Happy Flag Day to our US based buddies. Mum better remember to put the flag out today.
Mum has to go back to day hunting today. She kept running around all the past days for Grampie. He is OK but is now living in a spot where he gets more attention. Mum says it is assisted living versus indpendent living. But furniture moving has to wait until his room is ready, it needs to be painted (painter did not show up on Friday), then the floor and carpet have to be done. Then packing up the rest of his stuff. She is tired just thinking about it.

So Ducky and I had a quiet weekend, lots of napping time. We did see the hummer bird outside the windows on Caturday too. Mum was around long enough to use the grass eating Monster and such on Caturday too. Plus she watched the football/soccer match between USA and England.

Mum got some video of Ducky eating popcorn. Strange cat that one. Plus one night both he and mum were having a hard time to keep their eyes open.

Hopefully things are relaxing now that the stress of moving is over soon. Transitions are always so hard, for both people AND cats.
Ducky, you are sooooo cute!

We ignore popcorn. We thinks it's weird!

Purrs to you Mum and Grampie, moving is hard and moving a parent is even harder, our Mommy says.

Good luck to your Grampie in his new home.
We laughed at Ducky eating his ppcorn. He even shook it as if it was a mousie before he ate it.

Hope Grampie's new digs will be ready soon!

Be careful so the popcorn doesn't stick in your teefs, Ducky.

We hope Grampie is okay in his new place. And Ducky it was cute watching you eat popcorn. The one that came before us, Scooter, used to eat carmel popcorn!

Hope everything goes well with grampie!

I see the Human eating that stuff sometimes, and once in awhile I bat some around, but eat it? Really? What does it taste like, cuz if it isn't fish or steak, I say it's just a toy and not a food.

We hope Grampie will be happy in his new home. It's a lot of work to move, so we hope your mom can do the packing slowly.

Best wishes to Grampie and your Mom. Moving is hard.

Looks like Ducky was playing the "Friend, Foe, or Food" game with the popcorn!
