Mancat Monday: Things Are Stacked In My Favor

mancat monday brian 01212019

Hello everyone, it’s nice to see you on Mancat Monday! As you can tell, I was having a good time in my bed which is on my beds which are on my mats, all of which are in the recliner MOL! Yes, it was really, really comfy too and I was right here for a good long while. I was sort of surprised that nobody else came up to join me.

So, what was I doing up here. Oh, this stacking happens from time to time during the week. It happens when the Dad brings out Dyson for exercise time. The Dad makes Dyson run through the house and in order for Dyson to have more room to roam in the living room the Dad stacks up some of my stuff in the recliner. The Dad stacks the Cat Scratchers on the couch and sometimes I climb up on them too. It’s pretty fun to have a new arrangement every once in a while.

I’m not afraid of Dyson but I do try to keep out of his way though. The others are pretty much afraid of Dyson and will run when he enters the room. Oh, except for Sister Zoe, she isn’t afraid of Dyson at all. Sometimes she just refuses to move and if Dyson gets too close to her she’ll smack him right on his nose. Sometimes Sister Zoe will even try to chase Dyson right down the hall. She’s a brave one that girl.

So, that was pretty much our weekend. We didn’t see much here from the big winter storm like some of y’all did, but it is way too cold here, really cold. Y’all take care and I’ll see you soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

My mom collects toys and stacks our beds too when our Dyson comes out. Bailie doesn’t worry about it, but I am afraid of that loud animal. You look like the Prince and the pea story!

Oh Brian for sure that is the Prince and the Pea remake.
My grandcats have a Romba that roams over their house.
That 16 +lb Gingerman Frisco runs from it. Itty bitty Mia (7 lbs) follows it. My daughter thinks Mia is trying to figure out a way to climb on board.

Dolly, I’m glad you were comfortable on your pile of beds. I heard tell there was a princess who was so uncomfortable, all over somebody sticking a pea under her mattresses. I found a mouse once. – Tom x

Brian, I never left the house all weekend, but I didn’t pull out our Dyson to exercise it! So, all fur balls and stuffs are still on the floors, under the furniture, and in the corners.

Brian you look like the Prince and the Pea…..tee hee. I’m glad Zoe stands up to that machine of yours – guess she wants it to know who’s BOSS around there!

That’s a pawsome mountain of beds, Brian! Goro loves to get on the top of stuff that are stacked when we are doing vacuum, too.
Sister Zoe is such a brave girl indeed!

Dyson must be a common name. We have one, too. He’s noisy when he comes out to exercise. We don’t like him very much.

Looks like you’re very comfy. You’re smart to stay away from that Dyson thing. MOL

Tee hee hee. I wonder if that Dyson knows Hoover at my house. Hoover does the same thing as your Dyson. I walk by it while its scooting around the house and making lots of noise. It doesn’t worry me a bit, but It freaks the doggie out!

I started shying away from the sucky monster. Mom’s not sure why. Me either. WE didn’t get the promised much talked about snow either thank goodness.

Mom does that with our beds too. Only Misty tries to climb to the top:)

The Oreck comes out here almost every other day, but luckily none of us are afraid of it as long as it stays away from out tails:)

Aren’t you just king of the hill today handsome boy! I’ve never heard of a cat going after a vacuum – that Zoe is one brave kit!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

That must be a very comfy bed, Brian. Sister Zoe is funny smacking Dyson on the nose.

Wow, you are high up there with all of those kitty beds. It must be so comfortable and we lovee that Zoe likes to give the Dyson a couple of jabs when it’s in action. Thanks for sharing the lovely photo. Have a wonderful Mancat Monday.

We don’t like the Dyson either. That looks like the perfect place to stay safe and warm. We had lots of snow and cold, but our assistant is weird and likes the cold.

That photo reminds me of when I was a kid. My cousin and I would stack all my grandmother’s throw pillows on her rocking chairs and see who could get the highest 🙂

Dysons need a lot of room to run, it’s nice to have that fun arrangement while it’s out.

Do you ever play princess and the pea with your stack of bedding?

Stay warm, kitties, Zoe, MOL. Love it and would like to see a video of her cattitude. You’ve got a little Princess and the Pea thing going on there on Plush Mountain.

Purrsonally, I do not care for Mr. Dyson. He’s loud and rude and doesn’t seem to take the hint when I race to hide from him. You’d think if he were any kind of gentleman he’d know when he wasn’t wanted and LEAVE. Or at least SHUT UP.

It’s a good thing you can sit so regal and high from your favorite spot to watch all the activity of others trying to stay out of Dyson’s path. It sounds like that Dyson is a really pushy fella, though. Have a happy Tabby Tuesday!

Sister Zoe sounds like my kind of gal! Cabo is brave with the broom, but gives the vacuum cleaner a lot of space. Enjoy your perch….or maybe a new throne idea?

Chaplin: “I don’t like vacuum cleaners.”
Charlee: “That’s because you’re afraid of them.”

All our beds, scratchers and various other things get piled on the dining room table when the vacuum appears. Most of us get out of the way, but Giulietta is like Zoe. She won’t let it think it is in charge. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
