Mini ManCat Monday

I understand now why the Egyptians worshipped cats: They had no choice! - Pooky

Hiya, Ducky here. Hope everyone had a good Easter! We did, we got extra nibbles fish on Friday, steak from the grill, ham on Sunday for Easter dinner. It was really nommy.

Alfie and Milo wanted to know what yak was. Derby does it all the time and he did it good on Caturday evening. Yak'd up on mum's rug in the bathroom, so she had extra laundry to do! So much for taking it easy on Sunday.
It was sort of nice over the weekend. Warm enough to open the windows a little bit but not everything wide open. The sun played hide and seek with the clouds.
Our winter bird, the junco's, are still hanging about. So now we really know spring is late. They don't want to go back to Canada or the Arctic for the summer. Guy, please go north, we want warmer and bright sunny weather.

The weather has been really strange this year, hasn't it? It's enough to keep both kitties and birdies confused!

What a fine yak! We have a mystery yakker at our house, Mommy thinks it's The Baby.

It's cool here too! Normally by now the A/C is on all the time but it's still open window weather.

We've forgotten what sun is! We love the quote, by the way. Mama hasn't figured out why it is that she pays the rent but it's OUR apartment!

Yeah it wasn't very nice here either. We may need to build an ark...

Hi Derby! Hi Ducky! We are glad you had a good Easter weekend, except for the yak part! We hope that it warms up there soon (because that would mean it is warming up here too!)

We haven't seen any snowbirds/juncos in the last few days. Lots of robins, though. Sounds like spring is here. Of course, spring around here lasts about a day before summer (80 degrees, 80 percent humidity) takes over.

The ham sounds Nom!
Our mom made a turkey breast because she had one lefto ver in the deep freeze from the 2 for 1 sale at Thanksgiving.
Our oldest boy came over so we got extra pettings!

Guys, yakkin' on yer Mom's carpet? A light coloured carpet? Did your Mom make a lot of really loud, crazy noises when you did that? We have learned to yak on dark carpets...it does show, but not right away so that by the time Mom finds the evidence, it is too late to blame anyone...hahaha! This morning I did something dumb..I yakked in my own bed. Duh!! Not a good idea...always move away from your bed before you give back your cookies or you'll be sorry...luckily Mom cleaned up after me right away. Sorry you guys don't have real Spring weather yet. We've been having such great weather that I think we have both gotten a nice shade of....oh, that's right...we don't tan, do we. Well, if we could, we would be chocolate colored!! haha! Actually, I have made a nice bed in the middle of a patch of tall grass...the sun comes in, but not prying eyes...you are welcome to come join me as there is lots of room. Well, maybe you won't want to cuz as of this afternoon, the rain came and the temps are much cooler...but Mom says we need the rain. The flowers are thirsty. So, I suggest that you come at the end of the week when the sun is supposed to be back. K? Take care and lots o' purrs to ya both, Lautrec (and Tiny and Ellwood - us badcats and dameendawg)

And thank you for stopping by and wishing us a Happy Easter. we liked the day before Easter better. Mom was home with us all day!! That's always the best. Come back and visit us again. We will be back too!!

As usual, we went from "too cold fer open windows" to "too warm fer open windows" in a single week here! Spring here is more of a concept than a reality...

OKcats said...

Derby, you sound like a cat after my own heart - I'm a yakmaster. Spring seemed to get here pretty late, too - at least our spring showers did. Though we had some hot days early, so we thought we were going to miss spring all together. I hope we all get window whiffies this weekend!

Your friend, Fuzzy
