Mancat Monday:  It’s All In the Timing with Brian

mancat monday brian 03062023

Hello everyone, pardon me, but it is time for a mini-rant on my part.  About what you ask?  Well, the crazy humans are about to mess with the time again.  Yes indeed, this coming Sunday the humans here in our country will be moving the clocks ahead by one hour.  As far as I can tell the only ones who like this craziness is the idiotic politicians.  Well, I probably should clarify, all politicians are idiots.  No wonder Mother Nature is trying to get even.  As a wise man once said, only politicians would cut a foot off the end of a blanket, sew it to the top, and claim you now have a longer blanket.  That’s the end of the rant, thanks for listening.

In other non-rant news, well, there isn’t any MOL!  It’s been somewhat normal, for us that is, we had some bad storms the other day and there was a tornado about 20 miles from us.  The sky sure got dark and creepy around here but the big old boomers really didn’t bother us too much.  We were all glad about that.  Oh, plus we got a couple of new litter boxes to replace some older ones.  They are different that what we had and we all like them, they are our new favorites.

Okay, that’s it for today.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I agree! They mess with our clocks 2 weeks later on the 26th. It takes me all my time to remember what day it is let alone the time!

Brian mini-rants are allowed – we get our say sometimes since we’re members of our household! We totally agree with you about daylight savings – it’s ridiculous and we hope that FINALLY the politicians will do something about it…..Gee – guess I just had a mini-rant too!

We dread the changing of the time. If only those ridiculous politicians would stop messing with the time the world would be much happier.

Brian, it’s always so good to see you looking so perky and sharing the news. You’d make a good television commentator.

Mom needs to find me a new box too. They are everywhere but she wants a BIG one so I can turn around and have room to spare from that action as well.

Brian, you look Spiffy this morning. Agree about the time changes, they are such a nuisance. Yikes on the tornadic weather! Glad the storm didn’t actually hit you. We see lots of that weather and in fact, the humans here were actually in a tornado in 2011. None of our present cats were in it, they hadn’t been born yet.

It’s good to read that your household wasn’t bothered by the storms.
We don’t understand politicians either, but we agree that they are pretty damn stupid to allow Daylight Saving Time to continue.

You’re right about politicians, Brian, no matter the country. They all are self-serving and short-sighted…Wait, isn’t that like most of the human species? LOL.

Hurrah for new litter boxes, I’m glad you all like them!

I thought they were gonna stop messing with the clocks! It’s crazy if you ask me. Glad that tornado didn’t come near you.

We are glad you stayed safe during that nasty weather, and we 100% agree with you about this crazy time change, Brian! We’ve heard rumors this may be the last time, but will those politicians be smart enough to do that? Doubtful!

Great rant! And what type of litterboxes did you receive? We could use new. :D

Brain, the powers that be are always messing with something! Like you, I wished they would hang with one time, and the one coming up is the one I like the best. I totally dislike when we go from that one to the one we are in now, messes with me. Hard to adjust when the time changes. You are such an insightful kitty….

We agree with Easy that only an idiot would even want to be a politician. I have been ranting around the house now for three weeks because I looked it up on the calendar and when I figured it was only three weeks away and now it’s coming next weekend I have done nothing but rant and rave and my husband says why do you read and write because it never changes anything. I just want them to stop changing it I prefer the one we’re on but I could live with the other one just give me one so… Read more »

We are not in favor of daylight savings time. We honestly wish they would leave well enough alone.

We agree. Very annoying with the clocks.

We feel the same way about politicians. They create a problem and then tell you they are going to solve. They solve nothing. All they do is take our money and spend it in out countries. Off my soapbox now.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

Brian you said it purrfectly

We will battle with Grandfather clock this weekend too.

I hate the time change too. I actually heard it was the farmers who like the change (but I could easily have heard that incorrectly). I wish they would leave it at “fall back” but I think most like it at “spring forward”

Oh dear, is it that time again already??? At least it means breakfast comes earlier rather than in the fall when it takes longer. But it sure can mess with meds that need to be taken at certain times. Thanks so much for your continued support of Misty.

Glad the tornado didn’t hit in your town. I like the extra hour in the fall, but not losing it in the spring. XO

I like this time change because it doesn’t get dark so early. But I would be ok with me if we left it as it is. Really it’s not like a whole day changes just an hour.
What kind of litter boxes did you get? The cats here use the boxes with pellets and pads. They like them and so do I…much easier to keep clean and less tracking.

Totally with you about the summer time…it’s just unnecessary!

Glad you miss out on the tornado. Thankful Thursday on Monday. We need some cat politicians and I need a new litter box since I may wear this one out with my “streak” of poos.

You’re so right about politicians being idiots. I hate having to change the clocks but I do love the extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day. The thing is this is going to happen regardless, politicians just speed the process up. We had some storms over the weekend but no tornadoes in our area. Thank the good Lord! Have a furrtastic week, my furriends!

Some senators (politicians) are trying to get Daylight Time kept year ’round, so no more changing. Of course, some people are fussing about that, too. Depending on how far north you live, the changes can make sunrise happen very late and it’s not fun for the kids to be going to school in the dark. This is one of those topics where some people are going to be unhappy no matter what is decided.
