A Nuisance in Fur

It's Monday again!! Despite its lacking in popularity, Monday rolls around again and again..Funny how that is!

Hope efurrybody's doing well. It's been soooooooooooo cold. Not for us cats since a good purr and  warmth for us indoors is a given, but all parts of the country that are usually pretty warm or mild are suffering cold temps. I hope all furries find a warm spot!

We like the sun for warmth more than anything. The housekeeper noticed how the finer details can be picked up by the sun. Here are some closeups of moi - complete with catching that instant when a cat hair takes flight and lands in the annoyingly usual places.



Does anyone know just how many cat hairs we send aloft every day? I was trying to look that up, but I didn't have much success. Oh, well..

What's that noise? Do I hear the vacuum?

Better sign off, then.

Hasta la vista,
Tom

Half Cat - Half Flying Squirrel

Hi, effurybody!

Even if it is Mancat Monday, I think I'll turn over this post to my friend Bridget, showing what a kind, considerate mancat I am. Truth be told, I couldn't wait to show you how amazing she is! Ha!!

Thar she lands! This is the main reason real mice run in terror..she's been practicing going after nip mice!




Definitely ready for the Cat Olympics! We couldn't get a photo of her in the air, she's just too fast. You should see her chase the red dot. She actually catches it!

Very proud of her as any mancat would be.

Only athletic from the sidelines, I am
Purringly yours,
Tom

Let Me Tell You What Really Happened

Hi, everybody - our first Mancat Monday of 2019.
I wonder if anybody else has trouble keying in the new year numbers.
Twice now I've written 2109 for some reason. Probably just me.

Okay, now. I have it on good authority that when the kings arrived to see the Christ Child, it was a madhouse around the manger, since sooo many people had found out about what was going on and there was no crowd control whatsoever back in those days. If that wasn't enough, one of the three kings, Nebuchadenezzar or whatever is name is, was complaining they should have left earlier, then shrieked upon stepping in cow dung. Poor Mary was beside herself.


The Holy Family was only too ready to leave and happy to hear there was a room at the inn finally, but had to decline, just wanting to get away from it all, offering it to the three kings who wound up sharing a king-sized bed (that's where the term came from, I'm sure..)

We hope your New Year's celebration was a darn sight more peaceful. Things have been a little scattered here, please forgive us. We'll be visiting you all a little more conscientiously in the future. (did I really write that word??)

Blessings,
Tom

A New Year Ahead and All the Best

Hello, friends,

Here we are the last day of 2018. Don't really know what to say except there's one thing that always comes up. Hope.

Chances are this next year is going to be pretty much the same as the last, but there's always hope that we'll all get through it in good health and without too much hurt or pain.

We hope for surprises, laughter and friends that'll be there for us.

Like you.

All the best to you in 2019 and let's continue to enjoy our sun puddles and our dreams.

My friend Bridget and I when she was just a kitten.
Take care,
Tom

Christmas Eve..and the Sound of Wailing!

Every sad story needs a happy ending, don't you agree?

Here's a night before Christmas poem that starts out sad, but I make sure everyone in it discovers the true holiday spirit!


Hope you enjoyed it!

Here's one of my favorite manger scenes:


Now THAT'S where the true Christmas spirit began.

Many blessings and Merry Christmas!

Sweet Dreams

Hello, furries and your minions!

I post on Mancat Mondays because (duh) I'm a cat of the male gender. Does that engender affection from females? Sweet, soft, luscious and affectionate ladycats? Sweet, darling and adoring human ladies? I should say it does, as any red-blooded male will tell you.

As you all know, my number one fan is ladycat and friend Miss Bridget de la Furr. After she cleans my ears, she will lie down next to me and sleep. Totally understandable since I know that task can be very tiring!


Aren't I lucky? Sorry, mates, you're going to have to find your own ear-cleaning sweetheart!

The last week before Christmas. Can you believe it? The reverends are afraid we'll run out of candles. It's funny, all they have to do is get the word out through the housekeeper and packages appear on our doorstep. I wonder if I can order some catnip plants..

A final word, my friends: Take things in stride, nap in between and always dream. Always. x

ALL THESE LITTLE DOORS!

Hi, efurrybody in holiday land!

The days are going by fast and furious and we're finding ourselves catching up with our Advent calendar. We never seem to get it in time to open the first door on the first day of December. Does that happen to you? Maybe if we got one with treats behind doors, like chocolate or cheese (for me!) it would give us the incentive to get our calendar when we're supposed to!

Here is what we have so far this month. Check out today's door!


Hope you have your calendar handy. If not, we'll share this one with you every so often. (Only if there's an exciting door reveal, ha!)

Finally, remember, we cats love to open doors. One every day? Sheer heaven!

Merry Christmas!
Tom
