Mancat Monday: I’ve Joined the Army


Do you remember those big Sister Gracie saucer eyes from last Friday?  Well, she did indeed spot an introoder.  Actually, her eyes get that big whenever she spots anything out of the ordinary.  So who was the introoder?  He’s my new pal Army Dillo!

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
I did in fact join the Army…on the bench.  This guy is a cool dude and even has his own body armor.

I really don’t know why Sister Gracie had such big eyes, he smells okay to me.  He does have a wee bit of a funky smell though.  I wonder where he was before he came here?

I told Gracie it is all okay, that Army was our friend, but I’m not sure she believes me. Then, Army was off to visit with Sisters Zoe and Sascha…

I’m not sure that Sister Zoe was impressed but Army told me that he though her fur smelled pretty nice.

Army actually thought he had run across a lion, but Sister Sascha told him that she wasn’t a lion, only a Princess.

Army and I are off to take a snooze on the big bed.  We hope you have a terrific week. We are suppose to have some severe storms here today, Tuesday and Wednesday.  I sure hope the UTB Dust Bunnies aren’t scared of Army.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Judging from the photo of Zoe, that armadillo is a little bit rude!

What an interesting fellow! Last year, I found an Army Dillo in my yard and he was not so nice. He was making a snack out of a baby bunny nest and I saved them. I kept yelling at him and throwing stuff to make him go away but he wouldn’t! Unfortunately, those babies didn’t make it, but I tried at least.

Wow Army is a cool dude. We so hope the storms are not too bad. Stay safe. Mother Nature is sure being naughty over your way. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Say, that Army guy is kinda cool……he’s BIG……and as long as he behaves himself and doesn’t eat all of your food I say he’s a “keeper” ! We’re supposed to get that nasty weather too eventually…….let’s hope ALL of us avoid the “T” word (tornado) !!! Stay safe.

Hugs, Sammy

Where DID that Army guy come from? He ever tell you? And does Sasha know how he has kind of the same colourin’ as her? Cammouflage, perhaps?

Brian that’s the right kind of Army. We actually have real live armies and Mom apologizes but they are destructive and hard to get rid of critters in the wild. *sigh* They are territorial too.

Maybe we can send our Army’s to live with you. They dig holes in our our and make Mommy and Daddy cross and Tui screams at them at night, which make the parents cross too. Your Army looks very well behaved and friendly so I don’t see what all the fuss is about. ~Scylla

We are sure our eyes would be big too if he came here.
We would also be curious 😉
He seems friendly though, and that’s good.

Your buddy, Army, seems pretty cool! We have one who is bright blue and missing one ear. She can be a little wooden until she has been around you awhile and then she’ll tell you her name is Deela!

I hope the storms aren’t too bad! My dogs hate being out in the rain, but they don’t seem to mind storms as long as they are inside. My cat is an inside cat and is unfazed by storms too.
