Mancat Monday

MARLEY: I had a good afternoon outside yesserday!  The snow an ice was gone, AND TBT was outside with me after the rain stopped.
Now, let me say straight off that THESE arent pictures of today!   These are from last month.  But TBT didnt have the camera outside with him yesserday.  On the other paw, I was at the same places (I like that smallish tree and the furniture) as in these pictures we dint use before so they will do. 
Its a good place ta listen fer mousies.  The dry leafs make noise as they try ta sneak around.  Iffen ya listen good enough, sometimes ya can pounce directly on them from a couple lengths away.

An I KNOW ya really wanna see pictures of ME annyway...
But there were no mousies out today.  So I spied Iza across the yard an decided ta stalk her instead.  For some reason, she doesnt enjoy that as much as I do.
I dont actually pounce her, but it IS fun watching her tail get all puffy!

Aw Marley, you're such a cutie out there in the fallen leaves! If you didn't get any mice, I hope you at least got a treat for being willing to keep the place varmint free!

Megan said...

Marley, I'm sure that you are an excellent mouser, and practising on Iza is a good way to keep your skills up in the absence of any mousies.

Um, could you build a chicken wire enclosure around a larger garden, Megan?

We think life is better without snow! We wish you all a very happy holiday!

I know how you feel, Marley - I always get a sense of accomplishment when I get Binga to fluff up that skinny tail of hers!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Oh you should see Iza's tail! It is short an fat to start with, so it goes REALLY POOFED when she is surprised.

Um, Marley...

Marley, how great that it was a little warmer and you got to go outside. Too bad the mousies were all hiding.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Maybe next time you'll get a mouse!

We'll wish you all a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday now, in case we do lose power later, what with our ice storm.

Purrs and peace,
Nicki and Derry

Listening for mousies and watching poof tails is a fun way to start the week!

Terri said...

Siblings are always fun to irritate :)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

:) We love sneaking up on Tutu because HER tail gets all puffy too!

William said...

Um, Marley, you probably should tease your sis so close to Catmas...he's still watching, you know.

Looking for mousies is lots of fun, but it's not fair when they hide away. I would like to see Iza's tail poof up. That third photo is lovely and would look good framed. Mum has nabbed it to put in our favourite photos folder.

Marley, those leaves are a great backdrop to your orange and white fur!

ANGEL ABBY said...

Marley you are such a cutie and we love all of those adorable pictures of you.

Derby, Ducky said...

We stalk each other all the time.

Mariodacat said...

Those are such good pictures of you and I love it when you stalk outside.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Marley, you is a good young ManCat but I disapprove of your stalking and scaring my beautiful Iza-Lambie (even though it *is* kind of funny--don't tell her I said that, though--okay?)

The Human is going away for a few days so I came to say Merry Christmas to all you kitties and to TBT also. We hope you have a SPLENDID day!

It was 12 below when we got up today!

Allie: Marley, sisters HATE it when bratty brothers stalk them. I am the Voice of Experience on that one!

(But we'll trade your nice weather for icky snow that we have...)

The Cat From Hell said...

Marley!
My baby sister Jo-Jo thinks that yous is the handsomest! And that yous can stalk mousies and sisters..too cool for words.
Me, on the other hand, thinks yous is a handsome man-cat!
