Mancat Monday: The Bench Press

mancat monday brian 10212019.

Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and I’m starting the week out right with a little exercise (maybe very little MOL). This is my version of the bench press and I can do it with one paw! Let me tell you, that takes a lot of skill, not every kitty can do that. It’s important for a senior mancat to stay healthy and fit.

So, how was your weekend? Ours was a mixed bag here, we had lots of rain and then we had lots of sun. The rain was on Saturday and the sun was on…SUNday, of course it was. Of course most of us here prefur the sunpuddles instead of the cloudpuddles. Sometimes that sun gets a bit warm though.

Hey, you might remember that Sister Seal likes to chase the light fairies. Well, let me tell you, they were out in full force yesterday. The Dad was sitting in the recliner typing on the laptop and the reflection from the screen and his watch were creating tons of light fairies on the ceiling. That poor girl hardly got any nap time at all, but she was having some serious fun.

Okay, I’d like to stay and chat longer but I’ve gotta finish my exercises. Catch ya soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Snooze on, Buddy! We are not allowed to have those lights to chase as Bailie gets obsessed with them.

And Brian, your pumping up with bench presses just inspires me. I may have to try that too as ladycats need toning!

Brian,

You’re right, it’s good to stay active and fit. It gets harder the older we get, too. Our weekend was nice. We got some rain on Saturday but managed to get a chance to have dinner with our son. It’s always a treat to spend time with the kiddos. Life is hectic for us all. Fall has finally arrived in east Tennessee, still looking for the colors to show in the lower elevations, though. Have a furtastic week, my friend!

I get light fairies when I lay on the futon, with Da Boyz napping on top of me, and listen to an audiobook on my cell phone.

We could use some of those light fairies here or something that would give us pups some exercise. There are BIG winds here today and Mom won’t walk us because she is afraid she might get blown away. Thanks for your kind words on our blog.

Now that’s the kind of work out we could all get excited about! ๐Ÿ™‚ Our weather was cool, cloudy, and a bit rainy over the weekend. They kept telling us we’d see sunshine but it was very little! Well, its shining on Monday afternoon, so I guess we have to take what we can get.

Ooh, light fairies….I bet there might be a lot more of them when the Christmas tree is up. Seal will have lots of fun. Great job doing that bench press.

Thatโ€™s about as much exercise as we like to do, Brian. Lots of rain here too, which we have really needed. Those light fairies are fun. Mom and Dadโ€™s watches do that on the kitchen wall sometimes. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
