Tabby Tuesday: Pondering Day with Simon

tabby tuesday simon 06282022

Howdy, gang, here we go with Tabby Tuesday again, the last one for June, isn’t that hard to believe?!?!  If time sure flies when you’re having fun then I must be having a blast.  Oh, wait, I am having a blast, a great big blast.  Hey, boys just wanna have fun!

So what am I pondering?  A couple of things, really, just a couple of things.  I’ve been pondering the bird squawking, I have.  There’s this bird out front that keeps yak, yak, yakking and it sounds more like a squirrel that a bird.  I’ve been pondering what kind of bird it might be cause I sure don’t know.

Then I’ve been pondering my glorious tail.  Yep, the tail.  Somehow I’ve got 2 fur mats in my beautiful tail.  I’ve been pondering how to get rid of those mats.  I won’t let the Dad hold my tail long enough so he can go snip, snip on the mats, so they are still there.  I’ll have to ponder on that one a bit more.

Then I pondered if I should ponder on something else or it that was enough pondering for today.  I decided that’s enough pondering for now so y’all have a fun Tabby Tuesday and and I’ll see you soon! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

That is a lot of pondering. Now you need a rest.

Hey, put some olive oil on your hands, daddy, and rub that tail quickly and those tangles will be easier to comb out or have someone put a bit of malt paste on a finger and hood it in front of that uppity kitty while daddy combs….works wonders.

I sure hope that you figure it out, Simon :-))

Sounds like you’ve put a lot of thought into your pondering, Simon! It’s certainly time to take a break … Forget about the tail … So maybe your Dad can make those mats disappear for you …

Simon, you’ll just wear yourself out if you keep on pondering. Of course if you were sailing to sleep from it, and maybe dad can cut those mats off your tail.

Ponder is such a delightful and useful word and it is always very good to ponder over
anything difficult or potentially harmful before making a decision … like “oh, no’s Daddy, don’t hurty
my purrty tail pleaze!”
Now, run and hide.

Too much pondering makes me sleepy and hungry!

Well Simon my only advice would be try not to “over-ponder”…….it gives you a headache! Hope your Dad can capture you long enough to get your tail mats out though – makes it tough to keep your tail nice and orderly!

Hugs, Teddy

You do look like you are really pondering serious stuff. Hope your fur matts get resolved soon.

That’s a lot of exhausting pondering, Simon. We suggest a nap now! (And good luck to your dad, with those tail mats. He’ll have to be sneaky!)

Pondering can be puzzling. Gotta let your Dad clip those mats. Your tail will look nasty if you don’t.

I agree that too much pondering hurts the brain 😉
Keep an eye on the Dad. Once humans see mats, they become obsessed with removing them.
Humans are sneaky!!!!!

Simon, if you need a pondering partner, I am here for you. I seem to spend a lot of time pondering, things just like you ponder. We have a bird to ponder on. He is not a mocking bird, a tiny bird with a BIG loud mouth and I counted 13 songs he sun in a row. we have not pondered what he is yet. We need more cats and humans to ponder for sure. sorry I have no clue how to get rid of the tale mats

Sorry to hear about the matts in your tail, Simon. You really should let your dad take care of them for you. Maybe your dad needs to use the burrito technique on you to get the job done.

Some ponderous thoughts today sweet Simon, too much of that requires a nap!

Maybe it is a mockingbird. Do you have a furminator? I bet your dad could take a quick swipe with that and get a mat out.

I ponder your glorious tail too! MOL! A neighbor has a bird feeder in their tree and early every morning, the noise of the birds squawking wakes her up. She can’t believe how loud they are. She wishes I could hear them too.

Pondering is a good thing. Sometimes you can find answers and other times you can’t. I love your tail.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

I get those pesky mats in my tail too Simon, Mama has a heck of a time getting me to stand still
so she can snip them out.

Geriatric kitty Jezebel *was* pondering how to get my bowl of canned salmon. I gave up and am letting her lick what little is left. At her age, denying seems more cruel than any risks.


Meanwhile, I’m pondering whether she needs a vet visit. Her eyelids look puffy while both her prescribed ear solution and eye gel are gone.

On that note, I’m off to consult the clinic. Be well, darling, and hope you get those mats handled.

Ponder away, Simon – you might be able to solve some of the world’s problems. Meanwhile better let Dad do the snip snip of those mats before they to be to big:)

There’s lots to ponder in life! We think you should let your dad help you out with those mats though.

Oh, yes we bet it was a squirrel. Sometimes they sound like birds to mislead us so we don’t go looking for them. They’re real tricky like that. We don’t know what to tell you about the mats in your tail. Even Groomer Mom wouldn’t touch those. Hope you had a great tabby Tuesday! XOX Xena, Lucy and Riley

Simon, ask your dad to get the BirdNET app for his phone. You can identify all kinds of birds that way!

Me, I’m always pondering how to get more food.

Those are important ponders, but about that tail thing, remember snipping is faster.

We sure hope Dad can figure out how to help you with those mats, Simon. As for that bird, we wonder what it could be?

Hi Simon! Long time, no meow! Mes is getting something called a “lion cut” every few months now cause mines arthritis hurts, and mes needs some help grooming, but mes doesn’t like it when the Mom combs mes! So mes gets a shave every 3 months nows to keep the mats away. But theys leave some fluff on mines tail, and mes gets stuff in theres sometimes. If the Mom can get mines tail really quick with a comb, mes doesn’t get too upset. Maybe yours dad could try that. Maybe if hims tries to comb yours tail when yous… Read more »

Mats in that tail! Oh no!


Hopefully your pondering has yielded good results to ponder over on another day, LOL!

Chaplin: “I hope you find out what kind of bird that is, Simon! I wonder if it tastes more like squirrel or more like bird …”
Charlee: “And I hope you get your tail sorted out! I don’t get too many mats anywhere in my furs, but sometimes I uhhh get little clumps back that way that Dada has to snip out. And then I give him dirty looks.”
Chaplin: “Oh maybe so but you know you love the attention.”
Charlee: “It’s true, I do.”

could that annoying bird be a Blue Jay (they are SUPER annoying!) Or a woodpecker???
