Mancat Monday: Odds and Ends and Miss Aleneous

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Dad said I needed to do a Miss Aleneous post today, but since I don’t know who she is I’ll just go ahead and do it myself.  Pardon my squinting, the sunpuddle is pretty bright here on the back of the couch.

First paw, we didn’t get to do the TNR thing due to a whole bunch of reasons and the rain didn’t help with the scheduling.  The regular feral bunch has been around so my FeedingStation-TV channel has been pretty busy.  We think there may be a total of 16 ferals, 10 of which have been on the TNR ride.

Second paw, my Mom got some coloring books for her Birthday so I’ve been helping her, as you can imagine.  She is having fun and I am too.  She did say that she has a hard time coloring with me sitting with her and fluffing up her leg.  Go figure.  Those magic pencils and pens are fun to bat at though.

Third paw, Dad says he has seen some baby ducks and baby geese over around the lake, but they haven’t made there way to our place yet.  They are always fun to watch and if they come this way we will try to get some photos of them.

Forth paw, Sister Gracie isn’t doing overly good on her diet so Dad says I’m going on a diet too to help her out.  I’m not sure how that is supposed to work exactly, but I do have a feeling I’m about to find out.

That’s a wrap for today, so y’all have a fun week.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

You on a diet too!! Oh my!

Colouring books, we love them. We have Cats and Quilts, and the BZTAT colouring books. Lovely!

Sounds like you have a busy week lined up, what with all that caring for feral cats, colouring, bird-watching and helping Gracie with her diet. Tell her I feel her pain, being on a diet myself. No fun.

Lots of news at your house. That just doesn’t seem fair Brian, that you have to diet with Gracie, but if your house is like ours, everyone sneaks around and eats other kitties food. Hope you all have a great day.

The diet may make you run and you may start chewing on those colored pencils lol or lick your lips at the bird tv.

Ah, yes, coloring books. They all need a lot of furring to make the pictures great.

Wow, that is a lot of ferals. Do they eat baby ducks ever? Maybe the ducks know not to come nearby.

Good luck with the diet thing.

Diets are icky. I can tell you from experience. I’ve put weight back on again too (according to M), so now M wants to put me on a diet again. She says it was hard having my cousins here cuz I ate a lot of their kibble – helped myself whenever I wanted it. It tasted much better than my dish even tho M says we all got the same thing. I don’t believe her tho. Good luck pal Keep me posted and I’ll keep you posted. If you can figure out a way to get to WI, I’ll stash… Read more »

hope the diet helping works out… maybe you could just bat more pencils fur exercise? That wouldn’t help sisfur Gracie though unless she likes batting pencils too. Hope Gracie follows your lead and gets that diets stuff all sorted out.

Hope you get sum photos of those baby birds too.

Sister Gracie may be happy to have you sharing her diet, but I think you will not appreciate it as much.

Our Mom got some of the coloring books with cats in them and then she thought she needed some jigsaw puzzles….of cats! Who knew? We like lying in the middle of all those pieces. WE don’t mess so much with the pieces unless they stick to our feet and then they end up on the floor! OOPS not the “d” word…oh dear Brian….Well it’s good to help Gracie.

OMC You have to go on a diet Brian? Now let me tell you we don’t think dat be fair at all. You know da boys always lose weight faster than da females, so now Gracie’s really gonna feel bad. MOL And 16 ferals? Dat’s a lot of kitties. Fank you all fur takin’ care of them. We sure think you all be super heroes. We’s glad yous mommy be havin’ fun. Mommy’s looked at those colorin’ books and sez they look like lots of fun, and very therapeutic. Glad yous got some sun puddles, even ifin they be bright.… Read more »

I am a big help with my mom’s coloring activity. I bite the color pencils when she’s using them, I sit on the pages when she’s coloring them and I swat the colors when she chooses the wrong ones.

Your pal,

That isn’t fair that you have to go on a diet cause Sister Gracie is, geeze!!
If you find out who that “Miss Aleneous” is, please let me know! MOL!!
My Mom is thinking of getting coloring books for when she quits smoking this month or next………she thinks they might help her keep her hands busy and when she was a kid, she loved them!!
16 ferals! Wow that is a lot!!

We don’t get how puttingyou on a diet is going to help Sister Gracie, sounds fishy to us:)

Our Mom has those coloring books too but she never seems to be very happy with what she does:)

We hope the diet isn’t too strict, Brian, or we’ll have to upload some chicken from Ashton’s secret stash for you.

I’m not sure how that diet thing is going to work for Sister Gracie when you’re not allowed to eat her food.

What kind of coloring books did your mom get? Our mom has noticed there are tons of “adult coloring books” these days – she still likes coloring in the “kids” Hello Kitty ones, though, MOL!!! The mom had a birthday this past weekend, and she got a couple of cat books from one of her friends. That sure is a lot of ferals! We hope you can get the rest TNR’ed soon. And we are sorry you have to go on a diet, but hopefully you can help Gracie out. Lita hasn’t gained or lost any weight. The mom says… Read more »

Maybe Gracie will learn through your example how to stick to that diet. Hoping for good results!
