A Mancat Monday with Brian and a New Lake Visitor

mancat monday brian 01 05242021

Hello everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and rumor has it we’re gonna be having a heat wave here in the South. Yep, it’s not only hot, it’s gonna be dang stupid hot, and we’re not even to Summer yet. Air conditioning is such a blessing, now we’ll be working on keeping our feral as cool as we can.

Oh, before I get to the lake, I want to clarify about the kittens. Nope, they hadn’t been trapped yet, they’re still just a wee bit too small. Simon heard the kitten feet running across our deck. Sorry for the confusion.

I know several times I mentioned our lake, but I don’t think I’ve ever shown it to you. Maybe I have, but I don’t remember it if I did. Anyways, we always have lots of geese, ducks and turtles at the lake, but lately we’ve had a new visitor around. Here’s the visitor cooling down a bit…

Also, the Dad was outside talking to one of our neighbors and a pretty good size Stork flew over, low and slow. It flew over twice. It’s a little bit away from it’s usual habitat but Dad said it was something to see.

Okay, that’s it for me. Have a wonderful Mancat Monday everyone, I will see you again on Thankful Thursday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

it’s hot? we have a kind of after -winter here….

Memories of Eric and Flynn

I did wonder about the kittens as they are still small. Please send us a bit of your hots as we are struggling to reach mid 50s, not too much though!

Is that a Great Blue Heron? #1 used to love watching them from her cottage in Canada in summers past.
Sorry about the heat. It’s been almost cold here!

I feel that SUMMER wouldn’t arrive this year…it’s still so darn chilly over here. I just have to wear my winter coat early morning when I go out.

Day one: summer hot. Next day: turn on the heat! Who can tell anymore … and of course it confuses our wildlife friends as well … where and when it should be warm it is not and vice-versa. Sigh.

Hopefully the stork is not bringing kittens! The kittens must be fun for you guys to watch. I bet you see them more than your parents do.

Even we’ve had the hots, Brian, and the biped had to turn on the central air for a few days. It’s mercifully cool this morning! You’re right, this doesn’t bode well for summer.

A stork! Is that the same thing as a heron? The first thing we thought when we saw your new visitor was “heron.” (We don’t get storks here.) Very cool visitor, we hope he sticks around a while!

Take care and stay cool!

Mom has NEVER seen a stork. Now she said she’s going to look up their habitats and habits.

You are lookin’ good today, Brian! What interesting visitors at the lake! The one in the picture looks like it might be a Great Blue Heron, to me.


You better get those kittens trapped and spade/neutered.
That Heron looks like he’s cooling off all right

Hot, hot, hot! We think it’s going to be a hot and buggy summer. That’s a very nice lake and, wow, that is so neat to hear the pitter patter of little feet! Kittens are pretty exciting! Have a good week!

We hope that heat wave don’t hit you too hard ! It’s cold for the season here, we could share with you ! Beautiful neighbor ! Purrs

That’s a big birdy! Does he leave any feathers around? We like feathers.
We are still having what the people call “May Gray”. After that comes “June Gloom”. That’s cuz of the marine layer. We get “dang stupid hot” from July through October, though it’s usually called fire season.

Brian we hope you all stay cool. Dad had our AC put in yesterday and it has been kicking on a little bit. Whew, just in time. So nice to see that visitor. Very interesting

Don’t storks bring human babies? At least that’s what I heard. I hope there’s no human babies at your house, Brian.

Yes, it is hot in the South! I went for my walk at 8am, and it was so humid I about melted. Seems this summer will be like last year, too hot to handle.😾

A stork??? Aren’t your peeps a bit, er, you know passed child bearing age? Heh heh. Like mine. Hope the hotz aren’t as hot as they predict.

Maybe that stork was making another delivery of kittens. The Dad might want to have that thing relocated so he doesn’t have to trap the little furballs. 🙂
