Mini-ManCat Monday

I value in the cat the independent and almost ungrateful spirit which prevents her from attaching herself to any one. The indifference with which she passes from the salon to the housetop. When we caress her, she stretches herself, and arches her back responsively, but that is because she feels an agreeable sensation, not because she takes a silly satisfaction, like the dog, in faithfully loving a thankless master. The cat lives alone, has no need of society, obeys only when she pleases, pretends to sleep that she may see the more clearly, and scratches everything on which she can lay her paw. - Francois Rene de Chateaubriand 

Yep, I am an independent kit, I will hang out with mum, sleep with mum when I feel like it. Otherwise I will do my own thing. 

Well, mum goes and does her own thing too and this means racy cars. Plus it was a furry impurrtect race. They were celly-brating their club's 75th Anniversary! Mum has been a member for over half of those years.

The usual pin for the race. Yep that is a kit peeking over the shield. 

Then a big fancy beer stein with the logo. Mum will probably not use this as a daily drinking mug. It will go in with the rest of the anniversary stuff.

Plus mum paid to get an event shirt too! Oh yeah, the nickname of the race is THE CAT!

Plus this is the race they get fed a super good chick-hen dinner. Cooked over all these hot coals on huge rotating spits. Yummy and as usual no leftovers for me.

 Mum went back and look at all of the anniversary goodies she has gotten for the past years. She has lots of drinking cups from the various groups in the area. 

60th Anniversary

50th Anniversary Milwaukee and Chicago Region

Blackhawk Valley no dates on this one.

Hey, she has enuf glassware for an entire shelf here, she could have quite the drinks party here! Even the big cocktail pitcher!

Yeah, I will just fill up mum's lap now that she is home.

Have a good week everyone!


  1. Amazing ... what a fun collection and great memories ... (why is a cat part of it all?)

  2. Wait a minute...wait a MINUTE!
    No leftovers for you, Ducky?
    That just ain't right...

  3. That's an amazing collection. No chick-hen for you? That's sooo wrong.

  4. Wow, 75 years?!? That’s a long time to be a club. I’m a pretty independent cat too, Ducky. ~Ernie

  5. Pretty neat that the racy car stuff has a cat in the logo !

  6. That is a long time for the club to be in existence! You have been a member for a long time too and have a good collection of memorabilia.


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