Mancat Monday: On High Alert


I know you probably know how it is, there are things you just have to be on the lookout for, just in case. Well, in my case, it is Sisters under the bed. There I was, just laying here minding my own business, and just about to drift off. I hear the THOE starting and Sister Zoe came running in and ran right under the bed. What’s up with that? Oh, Sister Dolly was chasing her! Now they have been known to run across the bed, so I have to be on high alert. I sure don’t want any of Sister Zoe’s 4-Paw Drive claw marks on my back side! How is a Mancat supposed to get any sleep with that going on?

Do you have anything at your place that puts you on high alert?

Right now nothing puts us on high alert.. too early to be thinking about anything except “When is mom gonna turn the heat on? Although it might be 70+ during the day its -40F at night which is too cold for us puppies.”

We hate it when people come into our home if we don’t know them. We also don’t like Mum’s friend as she puts the flea stuff on our necks while Mum parts our furs! How rude is that?!?!

The dreaded vacuum cleaner is our major irritant. What’s wrong with a little cat hair?
This cleaning obsession has to stop.

I love Mancat Monday cos I know you’re the only Mancat in your house. MOL! Hearing noise in the hall puts me on high alert. You never know when there’s gonna be a move-in or move-out and I’ll have to hide UTB.

You are looking very alert Brian! It is our Humans that have to be on high alert here because we get the crazies about half an hour before they get out of bed. We charge across the bed back and forth and if heads are in the way, they get run over too.

Well the dog keeps everyone on alert when someone is approaching the door. Talk about synchronization– all 4 legged children’s ears raise up in unison the second they hear the rollers of the monster–the vacuum cleaner!

Loud noises! Except Mica Moo – everything is a high alert situation for her.

Oh Brian I know EXACTLY what you mean!
I always have to be on high alert with my little sister Kitshka for I never know when she is going to start jumping on me to play!

The price of living with girls, Brian.
That’s just how it goes. ; )

Between Glogirly, Gloman and the UPS man, I’m ALWAYS on alert. Except for those 16.8 hours a day that I’m … uh… busy.
