Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  We cats are very temperature-sensitive, of course, so sometimes the waterbed with TBT isnt the right place ta spend the night.  And carpet is pretty soft.  Im sleepin where the door opens to.
Well, it alerts me to when he is really "UP".  And iffen I feel the least bit chilled, I can just go stick my whiskers in his face an he lifts the covers so I can get unner them and curl up.

Sunday Lap Adjustments


1.  I love TBTs lap.  But I don't like his shoes. 
2.  He sometimes shifts from his right foot on his left knee to his left foot on his right knee.
3.  He just recently realized that I always shift positions to face away from his shoes...
See?   Well, he thinks my butt smells and I think his shoes smell bad.  He should wash them.  This pair is older than *I* am!
But I also wanted to show a style I like...   Ears, nosie, and toesies inna straight line!
Even while napping, style matters...


This is a day of remembering...  Is it only 9 years since Skeeter went to the Bridge?  It seems like a lifetime. 

I wish cats could be cloned.  I would love to have Marley and Skeeter meet.  They would be BFFs.

I love seeing Brofurs on other blogs.  They seem so happy together.  Marley and Skeeter would be like that.

He was a handsome cat.  He had odd gorgeous fur-patterns...

He protected LC and he was a good Protector of Ayla when she was new here.

He struggled his last few weeks.  The vet said to wait.  I think that was wrong.  Struggling isn't a good thing sometimes.  He was confused, stopped eating, and I was in misery about it.  He was my first cat who died slowly and I didn't know what to do. 

I should have let him run free a month or so earlier.  But he taught me when to know to do that.  A little early is kinder than a little later...

He was a sweet cat, always smelled like baby powder.
Friends at the time set up a sending-off tribute...
And he rests here, close by the pond he spent his last day beside...
Miss you, Skeeter...

Freaky Friday

IZA:  TBT (and I, I suppose), discovered something very odd about me.  Iffen he puts his fingertip right in the center of the top of my head, I freeze in place!  I feel helpless.  And as ya can see, I DONT LIKE IT!
It doesnt have anny effect on Ayla or Marley...  ITS NOT FAIR!

Throwback And Thankful Thursday

MARLEY:  We decided ta look back ta today 5 years ago.  And the pictures taken that day were about ME! 
 I see he disturbed my nap...
I dont nap in the huts now as often as I did then, but I am very thankful for the cat trees ta run up and down, claw on the posts, and nap on the open platforms!

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  You usually see me napping next ta Iza, cuz we can share a lap and Iza sleeps soundly.  Ayla is more restless and gets up often ta wander around.
But I love being near BOTH my sisfurs, so I am napping with Ayla this morning...

Freaky Friday

MARLEY:  We are all surprised today!  Well, ya can TELL by the surpised look on my face, right?

See, TBT cut up one of our indoor houseplants ta make more of them and he stuck the pieces in pots filled with soil that had been sitting in flowerless pots outside all Summer.
So we were all amazed when a PETUNIA bloomed from one of them AND TBT saw little leaves of more in a couple of the other pots too!
Looks like we will have some flowers in Winter here.

In The Nip Patch

IZA:  Apparently, NIP plants are tough.  We have had a couple hard freezes here and they arent dead yet.  For which I am very thankful.  NIP is very impawtant to me!
TBT has collected whole plants and hung them upside down in the basement ta dry.  So I (we) are good for the Winter.

Marley surprized me while I was sitting among the NIP, and I got all pouncey and protective.
 Its HIS NIP too of course, but I donnt allus remember that.  He backed off.  But TBT was there and reminded him that there was plenty in the house so it was OK.

Going Out

Some mornings we want to go outside at random times.  Somedays we all want to go out at the same times.  Today was a "all at once" time.
We waited...
And waited.  
TBT EVENTUALLY opened the door!
Marley went out first.  It varies.  Sometimes Ayla hops over the others ta get out.
But not this time.  She waited.
And then hopped over Iza and out of sight...
Iza likes to make sure everything is safe.  So out she went last...

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  These are actually from a week ago, but I am just catching up...

TBT had this entire area covered with black plastic sheeting all Summer.  To "kill the weeds and keep the bulbs dry" he said.  Naturally, I had to check it out after he removed the sheeting.  There might be mousie holes!
I was SHOCKED!  Not a mousie hole in sight.  Apparently, they didn't like the cover.   It was really dry soil.  Oh, DUH!  Nothing under it for them ta EAT...  I should have realized that.

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  Well, these arent all Sunday, but they are EASY, and thats what counts, right?

The dresser drawers have been really popular lately.  We all get some turns in them.   I like the highest one.
Marley can happily sleep in the top.
Or 2nd drawer.
Iza allus likes the 2nd drawer.  Its EASY for her to get there.

TBT has been failing us lately.  Oh we get fed, have clean litterboxes, get outside, get toys tossed around, and have laptime in the evening and cuddles on the bed at night.  But he has been REALLY slack about computer time.

We apologize for HIM about that.  But we kinna unnerstand.  He has been workin real hard outside to get things done before the REALLY cold weather hits.  He spends a lot of time outside in the daylight and comes in all weak and tired.

By the time he feeds US (ALLUS THE MOST IMPAWTANT THING) and makes his own dinner, and eats it and watches some news or science stuff, he is ready ta crawl into bed.

Not that WE mind that in the least.  We think most Bein problems are that they dont sleep enough.  But it means we havent been visiting or posting like usual, and we are complaining to him about that.

He has agreed to try to make some changes to get "back to usual order".

And we said he better or WE are gonna get bitey and start pushing things off tables..
