Mancat Monday: Time to Watch My Back

Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and we’re starting out the month of March. Dang, February sure took off like a shot, but I’ll blame that on the goofy groundhog. But March is here whether we’re ready for it or not. I’ll just have to keep a lookout for things that might be sneaking up on me.

Actually, there was quite the ruckus going on behind me, which is why you see me glancing over my shoulder. You might have guessed it, yes, the name of that Ruckus was Brother Simon. I don’t know what he was up to but there was quite the crash-bang behind me. Some of the others scattered, but I’m just taking the wait-and-see approach. I’m pretty comfy here so I’m not moving unless it’s totally necessary.

Oh, speaking of totally necessary, on Wednesday I have to go for another follow-up with my Dental Vet to make sure I’m totally healed up from my dental extractions months ago. You might recall, I had one spot that wasn’t completely healed. The Dad said this trip is totally necessary, not me. Wish me luck!

March means Spring is coming, eventually, and that also means that prime flea season will be upon us soon. Yes, we’re inside kitties, but the Mom and Dad go outside and the Dad feeds our ferals. That means that those pesky buggers can hitch a ride inside. Did you know that Sister Zoe is severely allergic to flea bites? She sure is, so regular flea treatments are a must not only for her but for all of us. Hey, Chewy is having a sale this week on Frontline products. Save 20% off any Frontline Plus and Frontline Gold product on Chewy! Discount applied in Cart. Cool deal, check it out.

Memories of Eric and Flynn

You look rather disapproving of whatever it was that Simon did. I hope your dental check up goes well.
I once had a black cat called Desmond who was also allergic to fleas, so we had to be very careful to make sure all the cats were treated regularly and on time even though we had never seen fleas on any of them. The slightest hint of a flea and he would start to lose his fur over most of his body.

You’re so right about fleas hitching rides on people. You have to be extra careful when petting or caring for outdoor pets. I hope your dental followup goes well. Purrsonally, I’m like you and think it’s totally not necessary to go. 🙂

Hopefully the visit goes well and no need to move due to old Ruckus. Turns out one of us is super allergic to fleas too. Ugg.

Oh no, a crash-bang. I’m sure the peeps are all over that. I hope nothing terrible was destroyed.

We hope Brother Simon will let us in on what the Ruckus was all about:) We get flea protection year round, and Mom is very thankful that it works so well!!! We hope the same holds true for all of you.

Good luck with your follow-up dental appointment, Brian, and yes, you’d better keep one eye at least on that crazy Simon. Who knows what he could be up to! 🙂

Simon isn’t the only one causing a ruckus. March is creating a ruckus around here dumping a half foot of snow. Good wishes on your dental followup.

Brian, good luck with your dental checkup. I hope everything is completely healed up.
Everybody here, except our parents, is getting flea meds all year round, either as a three-month pill or a topical treatment.
By the way, what did your brother knock down this time?

Paws crossed that after this vet visit, everything looks good and you don’t have to go back to the vet for a good, long while, Brian!

You remind me of how i used to react when i would hear a crash or other noise from the children. Instead of jumping up right away to see what was up, i’d wait a bit, unless i heard something break or someone started crying in pain. No need to waste time and energy investigating if it’s not a big deal.

Hey Brian, nice to hear you take things easy and nothing fazes you. Gosh, in our house when there’s a ruckus, all of us have to go investigate, causing a secondary ruckus which may lead to water bowls being knocked over caused by the scattering of my crazy housemates. Your wait and see approach is the wise thing to do.

I hope your dental work goes well.

I enjoy stopping over and catching up. Hope that dental check up goes well. Isn’t it great to have a caring human take extra care of such a handsome ManCat? Enjoy the week!

That’s a good reminder, Brian. It’s still below zero to the point of, “What!” here but that will change soon. Or maybe it never will. Good point about the ferals and critters hitching rides. I must say you are a very cool cat among all that ruckus.

I wonder what that’s all about what’s going on behind your back, Brian. Crossing my paws for you on Wednesday and hope for no more fleas on everyone especially when you’re allergic to it. Extra Pawkisses for today..yikes🐾😽💞

I have a different name for that goofy groundhog! There’s a lot of people looking for him this year. If he’s smart, he’ll stay in his den until June. I’m thinking good thoughts about your healing and hope it’s going well. No one, for sure, wants fleas so be a good kitty and do whatever it takes to avoid those little buggers. Hope your week is going well.

“Ruckus” seems to be Brother Simon’s middle name. 🙂
