Mini ManCat Monday

An ordinary kitten wil ask more questins than any five year old. - Carl Van Vechten
Derby and I are not kittens anymore, at least not age wise. In our hearts we will always be kittens. But my favorite sweetie in waiting, Dora, is a kitten and just learning all sort of things with her beans. Of course Dora is anything but ordinary!

Well we thinks the clocking chaning thing went OK here. Mum went out on Caturday evening for her car club awards dinner. Came home and went to sleep, said she wanted to actually get that extra hour of sleeps.

She was furry buzy inside and out, getting leaves out of the yard, finishing picking up the stuff outside. So all of the patio furniture is gone and we have a clear view of the back yard. Then inside she had to spot clean the carpet because Derby yak's up for no particulary reason, and then got out her new sucking monster!
The old rug sucking monster starting making funny noises last weekend, started to smell funny too, all burny and icky. Mum says the new one sure does pick up our furs better.

Oh and Derby is all hissed off. Mum forgot his blogoversary on November 3. Well it is OUR blog now, but he isn't happy. Maybe that is why he was yakking up on the carpet! Well he has been at this for 5 years now. Our good buddies, The Crew, have been at it for the same time. Max of The Crew, Derby and I all came from the same shelter.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - playing the Cowboys on Sunday night in historic Lambeau Field. They win, good job both on offense and defense. Great jobs guys, take next weekend off!

Grampa Brett and the ViQueens - managed to pull the game out in OT, mum was hoping those red fevver guys would win, they were ahead almost all of the game.

The Colts - well, not having a good year they lost to the Eagle birds. Lots of injuries this year but we still like watching Peyton play.

On a final, and sadder note, we had to say farewell to another Gorgeous Ginger. Rusty has run off to The Bridge.
Hope everyone has a good week.


  1. What a weekend you guys had! Mama will be so glad when she moves, because there won't be any carpeting for us to mess up.

  2. Happy Blogoversary, Derby, even though your Mom was late in letting us know about it. I am sure that your Mom is very happy to have a new rug sucking machine, but how do you guys feel about it? I am really sad that Rusty went to the Bridge.

  3. Happy Blogoversary, Derby ~ sounds like yoo had a good weekend. we are so sad about Rusty.

  4. Belated happy blogoversary!

    That new sucky monster looks particularly scary to us....don't get too close! :-O

    We were deeply saddened to read of Rusty's passing to the Bridge. We know he had a long and happy life, but it's still hard. We've been sending purrs to his family, wishing them peace in their hearts, healing of their grief.

  5. Happy Belated Blogoversary!

    We're so sorry that Rusty had to leave to go to the bridge. We will miss him.

  6. Happy Blogoversary to your Derby! I didn't know you came from the same shelter as Max! How cool!

  7. Happy Blogaversary! we are so happy we have been friends all these years!

    Nicky asks more questions then 10 5year olds

  8. We vote for more pictures of Dora and a lot less of that rug-sucker!

  9. Happy blogoversary, Derby! Even if your human DID mess up by forgetting. I don't think a new sucking monster is the best idea for a blogoversary gift, either. Humans are weird.

  10. Sucking monsters are Bad. Can you imagine we have FOUR?! Daddy has a "thing" for them.
    Derby, Happy 5 Year Blogaversary! We've been reading your blog since 2007 and enjoyed it all.
    We left a message with Rustt's Mom, we were very sad to see him go over The Brudge.

  11. Happy Blogoversary! We remember when we could read the entire CB in 45 minutes.

    Have a good week watching the fevvers.

  12. Ooh, Happy Blogoversary. Sorry it got forgotten a couple of days!

    TBT has been werkin outside too, but its plant stuff. Our outside furniture just stays outside.

  13. Happy Blogaversary.. As they say better late than never.. Hugs GJ xx

  14. Oh no! That sucker machine looks like a monster. Please be careful. Always have one of you on guard.

  15. Can I still wish Happy Blogoversary?


    We love little Dora too! She's so darn adorable!


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