Mancat Monday: Rain, Rain and NYC

      45 Comments on Mancat Monday: Rain, Rain and NYC


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! Okay rain, these claws are for you!  Oh my goodness, what a rainy weekend we had here in our part of Upstate South Carolina.  I don’t know how much rain we’ve had, but I think it’s time for it to stop.  I’m just going to lay here on our Peggy Blankie with my eyes closed and wait for it to stop.  We’re supposed to have rain all week too and that, my friends, it a sure-fired way to ruin good window whiffin’.  South Carolina has been in a drought situation for several years, and we’ve had so much rain this year that the drought has gone bye-bye.  There’s good news in not having a drought, but seriously, does it have to rain all of the time?  The funny part is even the TV Weather Guessers can get this one right!

Oh well, at least some friends are having a good time.  My Mom’s friend Philip was in New York last week and was excited to see some of the famous sights…

It sure looks like Philip was having a great time.  If we had only known, we could have tagged along and went to visit Hillary, Marc and Lucy. I hope you have a fun and dry week everyone!

Our weather has been all gloomy and rainy the last few days too. WITH lots of loud boomings! We are glad your drought has gone bye bye. That’s a relief!

Yup that rain was horrible. The Person had to swim out to the donkeys. It was not fun. Hopefully it will slow down now. We are all tired of wet feet.
Hope all of you have a great day. And those are terrific pictures of New York. Take care.

That rain you’ve been having must be the rain we had all last week. We think our drought is over too. But lots of areas got flooded (we were okay!) and are still suffering from the mess it caused. Stay dry!

We think our rain has eased now but we had drought last year and then it didn’t stop raining for months and months – we hope your rain will run out of water soon!!

Same thing in Charlotte Brina where Mom was for the weekend. It WAS nice on Friday when I got there and then…rain. Mom had to drive all the way home in it. There were low lying clouds over the mountains along wif the rains and momma had a long slow hard trip right to our door here where it was pounding rain as well. xoxox

Oh pooh, all those rain sure would make the napping all the more fun, right?

We won’t be having too much whiffies here, tis hot here in our neck of the california state, so we’ll be napping until it cools off then we’d be walking all over the sleeping humans 🙂

We had rain all day yesterday, Brian, but today is much better. We hope those weather persons are wrong and you get some good weather this week.

The mom was in NYC last fall and said it was so much fun.

Hope the rain has stopped now! Great NYC pictures. We’ll be there for a few days in May.

Glad to hear your drought is over. I think ours may be too, last yer was horrid even to hot to sit at the window for any wiffies. we just had 2 days of sunshine! but back to gray skies and rain in forecast. Do you kitties agree to take turns on the peggy blankie, or were you just first to grab it today?

Brian, we don’t blame you for giving the rain the claw. We’ve had way too much for our liking as well. You have definitely found what appears to by a cozy, snoozy spot. Sometimes after a good rain, the whiffies are even better. Here’s hoping the rain ends sooner than the forecasters are predicting. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Brian, we are getting some nice sunpuddles to enjoy but that means it’s getting HOT! We’ll trade you a day of 90 degrees for a day of rain 🙂

Just think, with rain means cozy blanket time. I just bet you’ll get your whiffs soon. It’s been sunny here the last few days and in the high 80s. We would actually like to get some more rain before summer. I hope you get some nice sunshine very soon!

We loved the TV Weather Guessers! When the mom was little, her dad would tell her, “If the weather man says its going to be sunny, take an umbrella.” But we are supposed to get a lot of rain this week too. The flowers will look good but the grass will need mowing. 🙁

Rainy weather is great for napping, kitty, so it can’t be all that bad for you. We have rain moving in for the next few days too but us dogs will be out in it…our bathroom is outside, no doggy litter box here!

A day of rain is good for catching up on sleep and being cozy but more than that and Bob, Lola, Oscar and the rest of their siblings start to crawl the walls! We had a rainy day or two here in Brooklyn and some overcast days. We spent them setting up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising money to help us continue to rescue cats from the streets, feed them, get them vet cars and find them a ‘forever’ home as you say so well. We’d appreciate your help spreading the word…our site is: Thank you for… Read more »
