Mancat Monday with Brian: That Was Quite the Wrestling Match

mancat monday brian 07312023

Hello everyone, I hope y’all are doing okay on this fine Monday.  It’s sure hard to believe that this is the last day of July, already!  Before you know it Summer will be gone and we will be talking about chilly temperatures.  Now that’s hard to believe, especially since it’s been so darn hot.  We must be having fun though because time sure is flying by.

Hey, about that title of this post, it really was an amazing wrestling match here on Saturday evening.  I’ll bet you think I’m talking about two of the kitties wrestling.  Nope, it wasn’t the kitties at all, this time it was the Dad.  Saturday evening we had a horrendous wind storm pop-up along with some thunder boomers too.  The wind was really, really wicked.

Y’all l know that we have deck umbrellas set up on the deck for our ferals.  All of a sudden one of the umbrellas went crashing down and a big bang and rumble was heard.  Dad had to go out and put the umbrella down so nothing would be damaged and the ferals wouldn’t be hurt.  The wind was really blowing and the umbrella didn’t want to go down.  Dad had his arms wrapped around it, they were dancing, and finally Dad won the match and the umbrella was down and safe once again.  It was pretty wild out there for a while, thankfully there wasn’t any lightning around until a bit later.

Okay, that is it for now.  Y’all take care and always remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

we agree… summer war with us only for a super short while… maybe we will get a fall summer this year?

That sounds like a lot of excitement for your dad and for all you spectators! We haven’t really had a summer this year, cool and very wet.

Those umbrellas are causing lots of trouble this year, but it sounds like they are really important so I guess they can get away with it.

Brian, whoa, what an event that was for your dad. Don’t need too many of that again. And here we get a 5 minute rain with too much thunder. Just last eve, Precious gave me legs as usual and within 30 minutes, here came a blow down and off she went UTB.

You know, this is a true thing I will write here…I actually thought about you all’s umbrellas the other day (the story you told us about the ferals and the umbrellas stuck in my mind)when we had the same horrible windstorm and lightning and thunder. Our huge trash bins were blown over. I was concerned about things on the deck when I remembered your umbrellas and grateful I didn’t have to deal with those here. Strange how a memory will kick in.

while reading and seeing in my mind the wrestling match i had my question ready to type, was their lightning? you answered that. we had wind and huge strikes last evening and not one single drop of rain. one bolt hit something behind our house that made the non barking Beau Bark like crazy and shook the rafters of our house. Glad you are all safe and the umbrellas are saved and not ferals were harmed and that dad survived the wrestling match

You’re right, Brian, I thought it was a kitty wrestling match! Your mom could have taken a video of your dad and the umbrella and posted it…I’ll bet it would have been highly entertaining! 😀

We had some rumbles of thunder and lightening over the weekend. I can’t say if I remember if it was windy, though. I’m tired of all the rain making it impossible to stay ahead of the yard work. I need to hire a herd of goats to move onto our property to keep this place mowed back. 🙂 I’m glad y’all are okay and so are the feral kitties. Have a boogietastic week, Brian!

WOW! I’m glad your Dad didn’t get hurt wrestling with the umbrella!!

The storm came up so suddenly here that I didn’t have a chance to move my chair (and table) inside Sam’s work shed. Luckily the wind didn’t blow it around as I had it leaning against the wall of the shed. We had a few small limbs fall out of the trees, but no damage.

You have a great Dad. He always does what he can to care y’all and the ferals, too. Give him extra purrs today.

Your Dad is a man of many talents, Brian, and he’s just added Umbrella Wrestler to the list.
I hope those umbrellas have learned their lesson, once and feral.

Your Dad was very brave to go out in that wind. We had a big wind and thunderstorm blow through last night, and NONE of us wanted to go out in it. Lots of trees down today, but luckily none on our property.

Oh this summer has been something for wild and wicked storms. I hope everyone is ok and your dad is sure brace battling the storm. It shows his kind heart and your mom brushing you at every chance. You are all so very loved. Makes my heart happy.

I think everywhere you go you find storms and more rain or wind and wicked noisy rainstorms. We are grateful we think our power should stay on. The energy company decided our block needed to be in the 21st century! Hurrah! They even have something to help prevent wildlife from falling. You know those crazy squirrels will go as high in the sky as they can. Then laugh at us when they come down again. I hope you get good naps and lots of sweet dreams. Have a beautiful day.

I wonder if his outside camera caught the big match. We heard August was going to be cooler but the heat would return in Sept.

MOL that sound almost the same story as Granny’s, Brian, including the umbrella…MOL…We hope the weather will change soon again, this Summer was to short otherwise. Extra Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞
