ManCat Monday

If the pull of the outside world is strong, there is also a pull towards the human. The cat may disappear on its own errands, but sooner or later, it returns once again for a little while, to greet us with its own type of love. - Lloyd Alexander

Well now that things are pretty much back to normal here. Ducky and I both missed mum lots while we were at the kittie spa. So we both have been spending time with her in the sleepy spot. We want our cuddles, pets, treats and just time with mum.
Ducky being smaller gets places I can't get at, but I got him trapped for a bit.
Ducky chillin' on the back of the couch by mum's head. He is sort of doing the Q here. Mum needs to see if she has a good picture of him to enter the contest.

We saw Mr Hawk on Sunday morning. Mum had just gotten up and he was sitting on the ground by the sleepy room window. Then he flew into the crabby apple tree, then to another big tree where we could not see him. Mum went outside with the flashy box to see if she could get a picture, but then he flew away where we could not see him. Plus mum was outside in her jammies!.

It was nice enough to have open windows at least overnight. So it has been nice for both of us to sit and get fresh air while we can. Mum did some work on getting rid of weeds and stuff that should not be in the flower beds.

Pre-season feetsball has been playing on the moving picture box. We got to see some of the Packer game, they won. Then old Grampa Brett the Viking played a few plays, looked a bit rusty to us.

Hope everyone has a good week.

We are sick of Grampa Brett he stays in our newspaper all the time.

We has to get Mommy to find some pictures of us doing the Q and send them in.

It's a shame that you mum missed the hawk. But our mum knows how she feels. The other day two fighter planes, Spitfires flew really low over our house. By the time mum got there they were gone.

Oh, Ducky, you simply must submit that picture for the Q contest! It's purrfect! How smart of you to torment Derby under that chair where he can't get to you. hehehe!

I think that's a great shot for Ducky!

That's a great "Q", Ducky!

Kea said...

Hi guys! It's nice to see you again after our hiatus. We LOVE that shot of Ducky on the back of the couch; it's priceless. What a pose!

BTW, we've never seen a hawk, though our human has--that must be so cool!

Ducky, that is a fabulous "Q"!

"Tee Hee!" about your Mom traipsing around outside in her jammies! Our Mom does, too...how embarrassing.

We're glad that you're back at home and getting snuggles and love!

That is a good photo for the "Do the Q" contest! We have been trying to get a good one to enter too. (so far, no luck!)

We love the way Ducky is lying down on back of the couch; Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat's son, Jax (2001-2007) used to lay around like that all the time and our Mommy just loved it, thought it was adorable!...We are excited to see what the Saints can do this season=Mommy is from New Orleans and last year was just awesome for us!!!...kisses, handsome boys...Calle, Halle, Sukki

At least that hawk knows how to get away from the flashy box!

My Human thinks it's time for Grampa Brett to hang up those cleats for good!

Millie said...

I'd say that's a pretty good Q pose right there, Ducky.

The Island Cats said...

It's nice you get to spend more time with your mum now! And Ducky, that's a pretty good Q you're doing there!!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Sheesh. The tv had #4's jet landing at the airport here when he finally decided that he would show up and play. Landing, taxiing on the runway, the whole shebang. How idiotic. But then, mom isn't into football.
Ducky, that looks like a pretty good version of the Q!
