Mancat Monday: Gotta Run


Hello everyone, I hope you had a mighty fine weekend! As you can see, Sister Dolly finally vacated the Ham-Mick long enough for me to pile on it. I just needed to take a breather. I have been running like crazy all through the house. No big deal because crazy is easy for me! Seriously, I have been running from one end of the house to the other end. I go running and take a leap up into one of the cat trees, then I do it again an pounce up in the top of the other cat tree. Then I go rippin’ through the kitchen and out through the dining room. Dad said I’m being a wild thing, but that isn’t quite it. I’ve got a case of “I Miss Spring Fever” and all the whiffs that go along with it. Yep, it is pretty much as simple as that.

Hey, maybe this is a good thing. Christmas is coming and I love, love, love the Christmas Tree. I’ll be ready to snooze under the tree just as soon as it goes up. Hey, let me ask you a question. Is it too early to put our tree up? I am way more than ready!

We have the crazies here too Brian, just rip roaring through our house. It is so nice to have all cool and nice. We kind of think that it is a little bit early for the Christmas Tree. Hope you have a super duper week.

Brian, I’ve been doing the same thing too! Lots of running…though the mom doesn’t want me running much because of my back…but I can’t help myself! The mom says it’s the changing of the seasons that makes us all a little crazy!

The cat loves to run about and up and down and all around, as he meows his head off too. The christmas tree may rot right now, so put it up and get two.

We think you are lucky to have the carpeting in your house Brian, it gives you good traction during the crazy running and the leaping. We have the wooden floors here and we skid big time – LOL!!!

We know what you mean about missing Spring Fever and all the wonderful whiffys. We get like that sometimes too.

Oh, silly, handsome Brian, we think that Christmas tree should be put up soon even though it might be in trouble of being pounced on too and let’s not forget the ornament toys the humans put on the tree just for our entertainment=isn’t that so much fun?!!!…Thank you for your sweet comments in the last few months while Mom has been gone…Happy week ahead, lovely friends…xoxo…Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

Ohhh….that Ham Mick looks mighty comfy…I think our Binx would love one! Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner already? We love it here too! Sweet dreams of all those lights (to pull down), ornaments (to swat at), and wrappings (to play in)!

We have the crazies too. Mom swears once the weather cools down, we go a little nuts. And she thinks it may be a LITTLE early for the tree. 🙂

It’s NEVER too early to put up the Christmas tree! Minchie does at least one crazy run through our small condo every day. Mom wishes she had a bigger place for him to work off his crazies.

Our human loves it when we get the zoomies. Except if it’s Nicki at 2AM. LOL.

We haven’t been told when our tree will go up, but the human figures it’ll be the latter part of November, since she takes it down a day or two after Christmas. 🙂

We love Christmas too!!!!!!

What is it with the running crazies today? Change in the weather, we thinks, which is perfect timing for putting up that big scratchy post…er, we mean, xmas tree. Purrs…

I have the zoomies TOO! Mom loves hearing and seeing me. Many times my back is up almost Halloweeny looking as I run. I look all wild eyed too and zoom off again in the opposite direction.

Brian, tell mom and dad to hold off on the tree a while longer. XOX

Hi Brian–
When I run up the big old oak tree and then down, then run super-fast on the sidewalk, the lady says I am “full of pee and vinegar.”

You should put up a tree anytime you feel like it. I think earlier rather than later because you have more time to enjoy it.

YES it’s too early! Let poor Halloween and Thanksgiving have THEIR time in the spotlight first! 🙂

Hey, is that your iPod, pal?? I thought I had it made!

Anyway, about Christmas and the tree. I say let’s just have a tree up all the time and call it a Halloween tree for now, turkey tree for Thanksgiving, and then, the Christmas’s that sound?

Have a good week!

According to my Human, it is NEVER too early for a Christmas tree. Her birfday is on Christmas Eve so she gets a little over-excited about it. Other Humans might disagree wif her.

We get a real tree so it’s too early for us. I’ve been doing THoE recently too although I have been getting window whiffies. We had some really cold weather so all the midges are all frozen dead.

Brian, they say Christmas is a state of mind so if you are feeling it in your heart, the White Dog Army say go for it! Put the tree up!

Patches is with you on running through the house sweet Brian. She piles up on Mumsy’s bed to rest after her frolicking all through the house. She is thinking she needs a ham-Mick. We are happy for you that you finally got a turn on it just in time to rest up for your next run through the house. You all have a great week. Hugs and nose kisses

Ha, ha, probably a bit early if it’s a real tree. I guess it’s ok if it’s a plastic one. 🙂

All that running around and jumping sounds like fun, Brian! 🙂

We say you should put up the Christmas tree. Why not? All the stores have THEIR Christmas stuff on display already, right?
