ManCat Monday

Cats have it all  - admiration, an endless sleep, and company only when they want it - Rod McKuen

HiYa, Ducky here. Yeah gang, I get my loves when I want them. Since mum is around more, I want them more!

The weather isn't quite so hot or humids now, mum is happy for that. That means she can get out and walk more. Thankfully she walks early, then cleans up, then I don't have to deal with a stinky human all day long.

I chose not to enter the Cat-O-Lympics this year to defend my high jump title. But I still have the jumping gene in me. Mum came home one evening last week and didn't see me in my usual places. So where was I? Up high!
 
 Now this is the other corner cupboard in the dining room. Mum has never seen me up here before. I jump to and from the opening between the kitch-hen and the dining room.

Mum had lunch yesterday with Chey, Gemini and Ichiro's mum. She was up in Packer town for a meeting on writing stuff. She didn't bring her to the house to meet me. If she had I would have been hiding on her! I am not the social kitty that Derby was, he would meet you at the door and welcome you in!

Today mum says she is going for a boat ride, plus lunch. OK, more time for me to nap.

Very impressive jump, Ducky! We are very lucky to have Chey, Gemini and Ichiro's mum staying with us. She's so nice but she and our mum talk way too much! MOL!
