Mancat Monday: A Health Update, The Old Mancat, Bailey and Mouses


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Thanks once again for all the purrs, prayers and well wishes.  Believe me, I’m more than ready to feel better and I think I am doing better once again.  But we’ll sure take some more purrs that the all better sticks around for more that two weeks.  I’m still trying to figure out how to make relapse into a four letter word!  For now, I’m just hugging the cat tree because it sure is a nice place to curl up and keep warm.

Hey, we were all really excited around here yesterday because we saw a feral kitty we haven’t seen for at least six months.  We call him Big Head because his head is floofy and huge.  He is likely the Papa of the ferals we care for and we thought that handsome mancat was gone.  Nope, he was out at the feeding station yesterday.  He looked great and has his winter coat on.  Dad went out and talked to him for a bit and told him how glad we were to see him.  Obviously he has been enjoying one of the other fine dining establishments in our neighborhood.  But seeing him again did bring smiles all around.

Anywho, I just have to tell you how proud I am of my little friend Bailey, and I know quite a few of you know this handsome boy…

Congrats Bailey!!!
A panel of judges selected handsome Bailey as The Cutest Dog in a Las Vegas contest. We think the judges are very wise, congratulations Bailey!

Then, to top off my Mancat Monday, I received a very nice award from my sweet friend Nylablue.

Thanks Nylablue
Thanks my dear friend!  I know a lot of you already know Nylablue, who has been struggling with her health lately.  I have just recently met this beautiful gal and we all just love her to pieces.  Thanks sweet friend for sharing your award with us.

That’s a wrap for Mancat Monday.  I hope your week is totally purrfect and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    I am so glad you are feeling better. xx

    I came to say thank you so much for the visit with loving comments when we lost our sweet boy. So appreciated and helped us so much. Hugs Carol x

  2. Joey the Nike Cat

    Hey Brian thanks for stopping by on Caturday. Yes Bear is rather helpful, but I’m sure it’s just a phase. After all he just hasn’t sorted out how to be aloof and gentlemanly yet…like me. He’s always making a racket to get everyone’s attention. This helpfulness may just be a ploy to get the Mom Lady to feed him more.

    Well the Mom Lady says thanks fur all the purrz fur Katie Kitty Too… She tried to send you an email but it bounced back. Purring that you stay well and healthy, Joey.

  6. Fuzzy Tales

    Brian, we’re sending lots of purrs that you don’t have another relapse. You look a bit sad in that photo, at least to our human. She’s sending you cuddles and smooches.

  7. Molly The Wally

    We hope you are going to be feeling better and better every day Brian. We have crossed both sets of paws which does make us fall over a lot but we don’t mind that if you are improving. Take care.

  10. Ann Staub

    Hope you did OK over the weekend Brian… Big Head is such a cute name, and I actually used to call one of my old male cats that name 🙂 And sometimes, my mom calls Shiner “Big Head” too. Bailey looks super cute as usual! Congrats to him on winning that contest!

  11. Angel Abby

  14. Emma and Buster

    We were just thinking about you yesterday Brian and mama sighed out loud about wanting you to get better and be your old self again.

    BTW, we have ferals that we feed and we know for sure that there are many feeding stations in our neighborhood too. And recently one of the ones that we fed a long time ago who disappeared without saying goodbye had come back to the front yard and so we again put out food for her there. We are so happy, but she’s not as friendly as before. Do you think they remember us?

  15. Selina

    We’re continuing to purr for you, good buddy! MomKatt says “Hi” to your DadKatt!

    And did you SEE who was in PINK BED this weekend?!?!? THE NERVE!


  16. Katie Isabella

    Brian, I have thought of you every day but I hated to keep nagging and nagging so I waited as I knew when you had something to say, you would! PLEASE stay better. Now *I* has a sickie.

  17. Clooney

    Oh dear buddy Brian, sending you lots of love and purrs and prayers for everything to resolve and for you to feel better from here on out. Thinking of you for sure. (We are glad that Papa feral is back around and well.)

  20. Glogirly & Katie

    Brian, we’re so sorry to hear you’re still not feeling up to snuff…that’s no fun at all. I’m sure that cat tree is warm and comfy, but it can’t purr for you like your friends can! So we’re sending a nice fresh batch.
    Katie & Waffles

  21. Cathy Keisha

    Aw, Brian, I really really want to purr hard enough to make you all better. I’m gonna ramp up those Healing Purrs and maybe do a #Pawcircle out on #Briansporch. It worked for Clooney.

  22. The Island Cats

    Brian, we’re glad you’re feeling better but we’re gonna keep the purrs going for you so that you continue to feel better and don’t have another relapse. Bailey is pretty cute. We can see why the judges picked him. 🙂

  23. Kitties Blue

    Brian, we know you want to turn relapse into an HBO four-letter word, but we have a better idea. How about leaving off the front and the back? You get LAPS…a place where you should be spending all your time until you are 100 % well again. We are so glad you have gotten to know our sisfur, Nylablue, and that she gave you the pawsome MOUSES award. You all deserve it, and maybe a few real mousies and nip mousies as well. It is always the best feeling when you see an old friend who you think has gone from your life forever. Glad BIG HEAD has returned. Congratulations to Bailey. We also agree with the judges. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. Sushi

    We’re sending more purrs over to you. I hope you’ll feel better really soon. Oh, concats on the Mouses! award.

  25. Sue Brandes

    Brian I am glad you are feeling better. Sending extra purrs and hugs. Congrats on the award. Congrats to Bailey. That is wonderful you got to see Big Head and he is alright. Have a great evening.

  26. TK

    We are still purring, my friend.
    We are also glad that Big Head is safe. He must know yours is the best place to be when the weather turns bad.
    You to Bailey.

  27. Christine Michaels- Riverfront Cats

    aah Brian, my handsome long-distance love. So sorry to hear you’re still under the weather. Perhaps a jaunt to Miami will perk you up!

    What a coincidence you mentioned BigHead! We are in the midst of saving another “BigHead” now named Blackie. He’s a smokey black cat and a survivor of the hood. He’s beat the odd before so we want to give him a second chance.

    Hope you feel better soon. Sending warm sunny purrs!

  28. emma

    I think you are trying to be a strong kitty, but I bet you are hanging onto that tree so you don’t end up at the vet again! Hope you keep improving!

  29. Sherri-Ellen T-D.

  30. IndulgedFurries

    I’ll keep purring for you until you are 100% better, and stay that way!
    I’m glad Big Head floofy kitty made an appearance after so long an absence. It’s hard to not worry about them when they disappear for a while.

  31. Sammy

    Well I’m really super happy to hear that you’re better again Brian BUT let’s keep the love going this time and just STAY better OK????? We’re all pulling for you – really we are!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    Sweet Brian we are glad to hear that you are feeling better again. We have not stopped sending up prayers for you and will keep them going. Please be all well very soon…we know you want to be and we sure want you to be. That was amazing you saw Big Head and your dad got to talk to him. It is good that he has been eating and looks great. You all have a super week. Hugs and nose kisses

  33. Miss Kitty
