Mini-ManCat Monday

You didn't really want to read that did you? - Author Unknown
Mum has been reading more, some thin and skinny books, other fat ones. The one you see me peeking around was something about losing a symbol. Plus she has "joined" the Adult Winter Reading Program, seems you register, then read a book, tell them you readed the book and then you might win a prize. Mum isn't sure what the prize might be, but for the next 6 weeks she is going to do her best to read a book a week! We will let you know if she wins a prize.

Mum hasn't had much energy to do much the past few days. She is barking like a woofie at times and sniffing, blowing and just generally sounding pretty bad. So that gives her time to read. She did leave the house long enough to get foods to each AND finally go see the latest Harry Potter movie.
She still has to eat and she made french toast with raisin bread on Sunday! We don't really care for it, but did get a little of the egg mix cooked up for us. Eat your heart out Miles Meezer!

Don't forget the Stouper Bowl party on Sunday. Mum better be OK enough to get all the goodies for that!

Guess we better go purr on mum so she sounds better. She says she doesn''t feel really bad, just sounds bad.

Have a happy week every one.

ManCat Monday on Sunday Evening

A drowsy winter evening is never quite drowsy enough without a sleeping cat. - Anonymous
More smackdown!
But I am now cheering!

Feetsball Report

The Packers are Stouper Bowl bound! They beat Da Bears in a close game, 21 to 14.

Mum says the defense won the game for the team with two interceptions.

We know all of our furiends who are fans of Da Bears are disappointed, but that is the way the feetball bounces. First time the six seed has made it through!

At this time we don't know who we are playing. That game is just getting started. Heck, we don't care, we are going to the big game in two weeks.

Support Your Local Shelter

Plus this is to help your local shelter. Mum has done that lots. She has done donations to help out build the new shelter addition and for our comment-a-thon, we donated a neat shelter thingy for the mobile adoption unit.

We know lots of kitties, woofies, buns and others are waiting for their furrever homes. So until they get we help them out. We both came from HAWS -Humane Animal Welfare Society. It is a good place, here are a few pictures.
The kittie room.

My brick, Ducky doesn't have one yet!

Hehehehe, I got the little runt cornered, well at least for a few minutes. We are in the spare human litterbox room. Small so not as easy to get away from me! We had a bit of a smackdown, then I let him run away.
One of mum's furiends gave here these two nice cloth shopping bags. She had made them herself and put kittie fabric on them just for mum.

Mum took off overnight on us! She came home really early from day hunting, then took her big red carry bag full of stuff with her. Didn't come back until about noon today. Seems she was off having fun with her furiends. Food, talk and something about razzberry martini's!

Belated Christmouse Prezzie

Looky what the guy in the long blue shorts dropped off today.

We remember a way back that Miss Millie said her mum had to work on a Gizzy quilt for a ginger boy. I didn't ever think that ginger boy was me! It got delayed a bit as Millie's mum was furry bizzy at work. Mum said she understood.

Stay warm everyone, it is cold here. We will stay in and watch mum watch feetsball on Sunday.

Mini-ManCat Monday

Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes. - Theophile Gautier
Yes, I has a soul. I am a soul brother. Yes? No?

Mum had some tuna for dinner last night, we got a bit as well. Derby tried to move in on my portion, but mum made him stay away.

We had vishus deers behind our house the other night. Mum got up around midnight to use the human litterbox. On the way back to her sleepy spot, she looked outside and thought their was someone walking on the trail behind our house. They were by the big tree and without her seeing eye glasses, she thought they had very skinny legs.

Then she looked closer and realized it was a deer! I was sitting on the window perch and we watch the deer wander into the yard of the neighbor behind us. Then another vishus deer came out of the ditch from the neighbor next to us. It wandered in the same direction as the other one. Mum said they were lady deers, does, she called them. Just so they leave me alone.

Feetbsall Report - Divisional Playoffs

The Pack - They winned! They beat the Falcons, when they played in the regular season The Pack just losted by a field goal at the last minute. This time when they played the Falcons, they pretty much buried them. Scored, scored some more and just kept scoring! They scored 48 points which is the most the team has ever scored in a playoff game.

Mum got pretty excited just before half time when one Packer guy swiped the ball and ranned for a touchtown. She was yelling and cheering, but it scairt me. So when the play stopped she could tell I wasn't my normal happy self. So she came over to talk to me really softly and tell me things was all OK. Pfhew. I was ready to run and hide!

Next week the Pack will play Da Bears! We beat them a couple of weeks ago, hopes we can do it again.

On the other side the Jet people shot down Miss Millie's team, the guys named Pat. The Jets will play the Steel guys, the Steel guys beat the Ravens.

Hmmm, seems like it hasn't been a good playoff season for team with fevver nicknames. The Eagles, Falcons, Seahawks and Ravens all lost.

Waitin' for Feetsball

Hi'ya, Ducky here. The Packer feetsball game won't start for a couple of hours yet. Mum has been busy reading stuff and making something pretty. Please feel free to biggify the pictures.

She had this paper thing that had new words in it. One of them was chillax.
Ummm, new word? I don't think so, we kitties on the CB have been using it for years! I think William was one of the first. Plus on the news they said the word 'nom' was new and 'in'. Heck that is another one we kitties have been using for some time. Guess we are trend setters.

Then mum broked her old badge holder early in December. Was too busy to fix it, or to try to work on something new. Well today she went out and came home with all of these neat, little bead things to string on a bracelet like thing.
She used the big old clasp from her old badge holder along with the bracelet so she can fasten it to her puter bag or purse. Some nice blues, greens, purples, some flashy, sparkly beads.
Plus two little kittie faces, so we can always be with her.
It's a play thing for me, right?

And mum did an LOL! Go vote for it!
Shall We Dance?

How I Got Up and Down

OK, you want to know how I made it up on top of the cupboard.

First to the table with the puter printer on it. Those extra few inches of the printer help and I just leap from there to the top of the cupboard. I am a very good leaping kittie, I am strong so can push myself pretty high from 4-5 feet.

A simple leap back and forth to get above the window from the cupboard.

To get down, there is another table top behind the couch or I can land on the back of the couch.

But maybe a video will work better than words. At least for the coming down part.

ManCat Monday

No tame animal has lost less of its native dignity or maintained more of its ancient reserve. The domestic cat might rebel tomorrow. - William Conway, Archbishop of Armagh

What shall we rebel on? Not enough noms? Places to nap? Not enough sunbeams? Hmmm, guess we really don't have anything to rebel on, for now........
We did lots of napping, being nearby as mum readed her book. She read a whole book on Caturday and the watching some of the feetsball. Plus doing the usual weekend stuff. Plus she planned it that she didn't have anywhere to be on Sunday, so she napped in really late for her and didn't get up until nearly 9 AM. We even left her alone so she could get her extra sleeps.

Feetsball Report - Wildcard Playoff Weekend

The Pack - THEY WIN!!!! The Pack clipped the wings of those Eagles. It went down to the wire when The Pack got an interception in the endzone with about 35 seconds left in the game. Now they will play on Caturday night against some more birds, The Falcons.

The Colts - Lost to the high flying Jets. Mum is bummed as The Colts are her AFC team. Now she really doesn't care who wins, or maybe better put she has teams she would rather not see win. But we won't go there.

Saturday, January 8, 2011


Quiet day for us today. Mum has been in and out doing stuff today, shopping, bank, library runs. Then lunch out with Miss Lynn. Mum said she had french toast and she is still stuffed. Said she will have a small snack later.

We watched fevvers most of the day. Mum helps us and counts them for Project Feeder Watch.

Now mum is watching the feetsball playoffs, or well sort of watching, she really wants to pay attention to the Colts game later. The Pack plays tomorrow afternoon.
Plus Zoolatry will be revealing the new purr-fur-manc review forms next week. If you want to see how mum did in the past you can go here.

Otherwise stay warm kitties.

Way Up High

Hiya, Ducky here. I found something that Derby can't do and someplace he can't get at me either.

Mum knew I could get up here, just that she didn't have proof before. You don't see me getting down cuz mum had to leave the house Sunday AM!

Mum knew I could do it as the night everyone was here mum slept on the couch. In the middle of the night I jumped up here and woke mum up. She could see me, but didn't get up, turn on the lights to take pictures. I decided since she knew I could do this during the daylight.

ManCat Monday

A cat improves the garden wall in sunshine and the hearth in foul weather. - Judith Merkle Riley

So far, so good with this new year. Lots of naps, treats, snuggles.
It got all warm last week and our snow went away. But now it is all cold but sunny and mum even went out for walks. Said it was "refreshing". Then she would read her fat book and snuggle with us on the couch. Plus we did some fevver watching too.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - They beat Da Bears and made it into the playoffs. Will play next Sunday afternoon.

Grampa Brett and the ViQueens - Grampa Brett did not play, his head is not right. The ViQueens losted to the Lions. Maybe Grampa will finally retire, for good.

The Colts - They beat Titans, won their division and make the playoffs. They will play on Caturday evening.

Our college team, Whiskerconsin, Bucky Badger, losted by one point in the Rose Bowl. Mum says they didn't play like the did in the regular season. Bummer. No roses for us.
