Mancat Monday On Duty

mm04192010

Being the Mancat of the house I have lots of duties and things that just must be done on a daily basis.  Tis the season ya know, yep, tis the season for pests.  One of my main duties this time of year is to keep a watch out for ants.  Really, ants, not aunts!  They like to try to work their way into the house, so my job is to keep an eye out for them and to alert the human staff immediately if I see any introoders.  I am very good at this task too and have already spotted a few little trouble makers which were taken care of immediately.  I must admit that I really kind of like this task since it is so much fun to do my routine patrols of the house to make sure all is as it should be.  One of these days I will have to teach my sisters how to do this, after all they shouldn’t miss out on the fun.

Do you have any special duties at your house?

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip!  Later!

I love the photo of you on duty. Adds much credibility to your very important job. My main duty is to guide my staff by using mind control. I stare, she responds, I eat. Works very well, tee hee

It is good to patrol the perimiter and make sure all is OK. I live in an apartment but I do keep a keen eye out for the minors in the tree outside to make sure they behave. Winston x

GAAAK! I do not like ants Brian! You are a good kitty to keep a watch out for them. Banjo is not so good with ants but he is a very good fly catcher ~ a very important special duty indeed!

Have a lovely Monday Brian!

Good job Brian keeping those ants under control. Our job is just plain to keep the house nice and dirty. We love tracking everything in from outdoors. Our other job is to keep Mom busy feeding us, letting us in and out etc. Hope all of you have a great week.

Well done keeping an eye out for those pesky ants. We have found a job where we walk all over the table and tell Mum off if she doesn't see the paw prints. Got to keep her on her toes!!

Brian, that's great you are doing on ant patrol. We have a lot of ants in our back space, sometimes we get them inside too. We like to watch them avidly, but we don't do much else with them. We need you to come and show us how ant patrol is done properly!

Ant are pesky!! I bet your humans appreciate your patrols! What a wonderful King Cat you are!
Yukon has taken on the task of covering unfortunate accidents. He tries so hard to cover with nothing but air. At least it alerts us to help him out!

We don't get a lot of ants
We do get flys
So, we bat at them
Mom comes running
Yells at us not to eat them
She's no fun
(we live in the woods and flys like the woods .. that's what Mom says)

We do not have many ants. If we did I would watch for them. I love to hunt bugs! Especially on the ceiling!!!

You are doing a GRRR-8 job! And this is also Cricket's job (we made it her job, since she bulldozered her way into our house). She doesn't mind though. She has spotted a few and dad is picking up ant trappy things today. Mom doesn't like this time of year (for the bug part only).

You are a great mancat Brian.
I has dutees simular to yours. Every night after our 10pm second dinners, I goes down to the first floor and watchs the racoons and foxes to make sure they not get in the house. When the gets too close I growls at them so they knows to stay away.
I must do a good job cause none has ever gotten in the house!

You are a good boy, Brian. I don't like ants. They smell funny and they certainly don't taste good!

We all share bug patrol at my house. I really like a good moth every now and then.

You are very good at your job, Brian! What do you do with the ants when you find them? Are they tasty? Or have you never tried one, or two. Something tells me it would be hard to stop just at one.

Ante up!

You are such a hard working cat, Brian. SS wishes I would do the same, but I just snooze and look cute. I reckon that's more than enough work for a kitty.

Oh yes, we had a week of ant attacks. They were everywhere. The Big Thing stepped on them like all day and evening so they couldn't go home and tell their friends where the good foods were.

We ate some too. They are, um, "spicy". We don't think we want ta eat more of them….

It sounds like you are very good at your job! I wonder if Rudy found ants by our fridge…he's been watching something, but we don't know what yet. It could be ants.

I watch spiders! Mom saw me staring at something last night. She went to investigate and there was a big spider! She said thank goodness I didn't try to eat the spider else I'd have gotten stung. I wonder if I've gotten bite by a spider before.
