Hello everyone, welcome to a wet and rainy Mancat Monday in the South. I swear, they must have moved Monsoon Season, it’s been raining here since last Wednesday and it’s supposed to rain here the rest of the week. It sure is gray and gloomy and devoid of sunpuddles.

But, as we all know, it could always be worse, right. Our Dad’s Grandma had a favorite saying, she’d say “people told me to cheer up, things could be worse. Well, I cheered up and sure enough things got worse!”. She must have been a character. Anywho, I know lots of you have having much worse weather with tons of snow and lots of that evil icy stuff. Yikes! We hope y’all are remaining safe, warm and dry. We do know from lots of experience that ice storms are nothing to mess with.

Don’t forget that Wednesday the 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day and Saturday the 20th is National Love Your Pet Day. Have a fun Manacat Monday everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Rain is definitely better than snow or sleet – we had some rain yesterday which washed away some of our snow. Finally. Stay cozy!

Apparently we’re getting a huge winter storm starting tonight and into tomorrow, and then more snow on Thursday and Friday. At least the biped works from home now and doesn’t have to commute! We’re looking forward to spring for sure, though we don’t have any confidence that the roof won’t leak again. So maybe snow is better for now. Lol.

Anyway you stay safe and warm, snug and dry, Brian. 🙂

We find rain to be extremely depressing. It is good for napping but that is about it. Ice is terrible, so we are glad you are happy for your rain.

Hang in there! The sun will be glorious when it appears again and will bring the most pawsome sun puddles. Happy Monday!

Sorry to hear you have so much rain Brian.
It’s way more fun to look out the window when it’s sunny.
We still have our snow, but it’s not so bad if you’re dressed for it or so mum says.
I am happy to be indoors!
Purrs, Julie

Memories of Eric and Flynn

We had rain forecast all day today, but it is not coming until this evening now. I could give a more accurate forecast by just looking out the window!

You and I have the same weathers, Brian. I’m always surprised by that as several hundred miles are between us. One of my brothers in Charlotte is also having rain constantly. Brian, you and I, Katie, even had to build an ark at the same time many many times. We too have rain all week and this week now, it says every day.

We’ve also had a LOT of rain, but it’s better than what they are experiencing in many parts of the US. So call us thankful.

Brian, we’re happy you’re getting rain instead of the ice and snow. It’s awful way up here north ways..could get up to 10 inches before it’s all over tomorrow night. Bridget, Penny and I are planning to ignore the whole thing and nap!

We had snow all last week and the rain came and now the snow has melted, which is good as life can go back to normal. We were snowed in yikes!

Well, it is freaking frigid here and it is snowing too. We can’t complain too much because we are Northern Breed pups. But Mom sure wishes it could warm up some.

We have some ice, but the sun came out tonight and so i am praying we have no more of that. You look very manly in your picture!

No rain here – we are the only part of the country that seems to be having nice weather right now. I’m not taking that for granted.
