Mini-ManCat Monday

For every cute kitten picture, there are zillions that never were taken. - Karen Anderson

Pfft, mum almost always seems to have a flashy box handy, but there are lots you never see!

Me and mum had a quiet weekend with the hots outside and us inside. Mum doesn't do well in the hots. All she did was water the flowers and get rid of the dead bird! Oh yeah, we had a deaded bird here. 

As mum got home Friday she noticed this dark lump in front of the metal monster's room door. She made sure she didn't run over whatever it was. After the car was in place she got out and found the deaded bird.

Mum thinks it might be a grackle, maybe a baby grackle. By Caturday AM the flies were coming around so mum scooped it up with a shovel and tossed it under the spruce tree. It can rot in peace there.
Mum looked at the door later and noticed the spoltz on the door. Guess the poor birdie crashed into the door.

I got my share of lap time from mum over the weekend. Skritches and just taking it easy.
Because it was hot mum decided we needed a treat of some ice cream too. Yummy!

Have a wonderful week everyone.


  1. More ice-cream? Yaaaaaaay!

    Sydney, Australia

  2. That's too bad about the birdie. How awesome that you got ice cream!

  3. Yeah, birdies can fly, but sometimes they are not great at it and just smash into things. Usually clear glass, but apparently pretty obvious "you can't fly through that" stuff too.

    About once a month, TBT will hear a "thump" and see us all run to the deck door demanding to get OUT. There is usually a birdie there.

    He gives it a couple minutes ta recover. But iffen it doesnt he figures it has gone to the "Sky-Nest" and lets us out ta play wif it.

  4. Yummy ice cream Ducky! That poor birdie, ouch.

  5. Ducky, there is a deaded bird in the backyard, which I am sure was created by The PO'M, but it's only the 2nd bird attributed to him since his arrival in 2011!

  6. total lee awesum moovee dood !!! we gived it 984 paws UP !!! we iz kinda gel uz....we never getz mice creem....N joy for uz next time with thanx :) ☺☺☺♥♥♥

  7. This time of year we get lots of young birds flying into the windows. They are usually just stunned and fly off soon after. You love your ice cream!

  8. Poor bird. Glad you scored some ice cream. XO

  9. That ice cream looks yummy, Ducky! I’m sorry about the bird. We had one hit our big window but it must have been okay because it flew off.

  10. Ducky it looks like you had a wonderful weekend. That ice cream looks so tasty. Poor birdie needed glasses but too late now

  11. I used to be a semi-professional photographer, and in a lot of cases you can enjoy being in a situation or place, or you can be busy photographing it. So spending time with your kitties, even without the flashy box, is a good thing too !


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