Mancat Monday: A Few Things Some of You May Not Know

mancat monday brian 04162018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday which seems to occur every Monday. Well, maybe I should say almost every Monday because sometimes if there is a special event I don’t do a Mancat Monday.  Here lately we’ve had a bunch of new bloggers stopping by and sometimes things we do or the pictures we post are confusing to them.  Once in a while I like to answer their questions, so if you’ve been with us for a while, thanks for following along anyways.

Someone asked how many kitties live with me.  Now we are 7.  There was 9 but my Sisters Sascha and Kit recently went to the Rainbow Bridge.  You can see their photos in our header, they are the ones with the halos.  We all miss them both.

Then we were asked is Gracie’s name really Alex?  I know that one can be confusing.  Sister Gracie is Sister Gracie and will always be seen with a heart with the name Alex on it.  Alex was Gracie’s Husband Cat and he went to the Rainbow Bridge a good while ago.  Sister Grace vowed she would always keep his heart close to her so that’s why she is always with her Heart of Alex.

Someone also asked if we took care of feral kitties.  The answer to that is yes indeed.  We currently have a family of 11 ferals that live out back.  The get fresh food and water multiple times each day, they have 3 houses, a doggie igloo and a protected feeding station.  Most of them are TNR Graduates, but a few have been elusive.

On an unrelated but important note, I’d like to ask you all for purrs and prayers for Sister Zoe, she is not well and has hardly been eating. When Sister Zoe had this problem before (CLICK TO READ), she had a pretty bad teeth issue and prior to that she had a fur ball the size of a racquet ball cut out of her tummy. She is going to our regular Vet today and the specialty Dentist next Monday.

That’s it for today. If you are new to our blog and have questions just let us know, we will gladly answer them.  Have a great Monday everyone.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Morning Brian ~ Being new to your blog it was nice to learn more about you and you sisters…assuming there are some brothers in that mix also? Anyway, thanks for sharing. I have just recently, well in July adopted my first kitten ( never had a cat before). Lily just turned a 1 old the 4th of this month…Totally amazed and wondering why I waited so long in my life to adopt one. I also take care of 4 cats at the barn where my horse is. Three were left there by the woman who used to have horses there,… Read more »

We hope Zoe has a speedy recovery. Thanks for the updates on the Gerald, we were curious.

Any new kitties this season?
I’ve been following a website in our area where they trapped a pregnant feral mom so her kitties would be born safe. That seems to be going well.

You cleared up a point of confusion for me. I always wondered about the Alex tag. That’s very sweet.

I am sending POTP to Zoe. I really hope that she feels better soon. It sounds as if the humans have the main possibilities covered with the appointments. I hope that those vets can help.

Mom says she forgets that new bloggers don’t “know” the back stories. We noticed that yesterday when Nellie mentioned being abused!
Being the only cat here, I am on the blog almost everyday and we let Nellie do her Sparks on Monday! I really like doing my Jokes on Thursday along with your thankful Thursday!
Speaking of thanks…THANK YOU Brian!
