Mancat Monday: Teaching Brother Simon and Thanks to Pets Overload

Just a note: Dad found a busy, so if we are not around visiting you we’ll
catch up later. All is fine, just busy.

mancat monday brian - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello all, thanks for stopping by on Mancat Monday.  I’ve had my paws full trying to teach Brother Simon a thing or three.  As the big brother to Simon it’s my duty to make sure he is well prepared for whatever comes his way.  See my tongue?  I’m trying to teach him how to get that last bit of stinky goodness off of the tip of his nose.  He’s a very bright boy, it’s just keeping his attention long enough to get through the lesson.  He will get there though, I’ll see to it.

I’ve been busy too supervising the Dad.  Well, actually the Dad was outside and I was inside so I had to supervise by looking out the windows.  Dad was installing some bright solar lights on the decks that light up based on motion.  That’s a little extra thing that might help keep the coyotes away.

One last thing before I go, we were presented a nice award a little while ago and we’re honored that a new friend also shared it with us.

I want to give a meow-out and thank you to Johnny over at Pets Overload for sharing this award with us.  If you don’t know Johnny please stop by and check out that fantastic blog, you’ll be glad you did!

I hope all you have a fun week.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I understand… we always have to have all two eyes on our humans when they are busy, right?

Concats on the award and bravo for you continuing with Simon’s “classes” – all of us youngsters need lessons from our elders to give us the inside scoop on things!

Hugs, Teddy

Gosh, that sounds like a great idea to put solar lights outside. Sure hope it deters those coyotes. You all have a wonderful day.

I think it’s good to keep an eye on your Dad, Brian as four eyes see more than two? Pawkisses for a Happy Day?❤?

That’s a great tip even for us pups, Brian – always good to get even the tiniest speck of food off the snooter:)

We have those lights out front that light up when there is movement – Mom loves them because they light up in the wee hours of the morning when she goes out to get the newspaper:)

We’ve been meaning to stop over and say thank you for visiting our blog. The collie-mobile decided to have problems and Dad was really busy trying to get that straightened out. The final result was a new collie-mobile.

Hope you have a pawsom mancat monday.

You are a very busy cat, Brian! What would everyone do without you to train the newbies, and keep an eye on the Dad? ♥
