Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  Checking the mousie holes...
The last couple actually BIT me.  I'm off my game.  Well, yeah, I got a bit casual.  So I am being more cautious...  We seem to have some mean mice around here.  I plan to use more claw action.  Getting cheek-bit by a MOUSE is kinna embarrassing.

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY: We had an introoder in the back yard...
Handsome guy, I have to admit.
But I wont tolerate introoders...   I stared.  I watched.  I saw how he moved...
 He looked gettable, so I went out...  I raised a slight puffy tail, but just a little.  I was feeling strong.
Marched confidently out into MY yard.
Made stalking movements towards him...
And he was gone.  Over the fence, beyond the next yard (TBT said).  As far as I can tell, he is still running...

Nocat trespasses here!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is of LC when she was a kitten...
I am presenting it not for this date in the past as I usually do with flashbacks, but because I was in Petsmart a few days ago and saw her twin.  Up for adoption.  An adult cat wanting a home...

And then I saw her kitten twin in the next cage playing wildly with a rattle ball.  Wanting a home.  I wanted to take them both home.

I didn't.  When I adopted Marley, he brought peace between Ayla and Iza.  I am reluctant to take the chance of disturbing the peace.  And I know how many cats I can properly take care of.  I know what my litterbox maintenance abilities are, etc...

I admire those who can care for more, but I think my limit is 3.  I had more cats once and struggled with them, finally having to find good homes for half of them.  And that was hard to do, letting a few go elsewhere to care better for the others.

But it sure was hard to walk away from both of those sweet black/white ones at Petsmart.  They both pulled at my heart...

So I guess I post today thinking of both those cats.  The adult who put her paw on the glass looking at me.  The kitten playing with her one toy...  I could imagine the adult asking "Are you the one who will take me away to a forever home".  And the kitten saying "See how playful I am, can I be in your home"?

It was SO hard to leave the store...

Womancat Tuesday

IZA:  I've decided I'm not ready to give up as Blog Mistress yet.  I'm staying in charge around here.

When I empty my food bowl, I nose into Marley's and he sits back and lets me eat his food.  When Ayla comes in from outside, I always tap her legs and she runs.  I'm in control, BWA-HA-HA...  I sit anywhere I want...

TBT:  Iza, I just filled the spray bottle and set it to stream.  You need some calming down and a reminder who has the thumbs around here...

Taking Over The Blog Day Five

IZA:  TBT has the worst luck trying ta find "the right chair".   He thinks they are right, then some way he sits makes it "the wrong chair".
Suits ME just fine though...
I now turn the blog back over to TBT...

Taking Over The Blog Day Three

IZA:  TBT bought us a new food mat.  He introduced it with water.
 Then a few crunchies...
It was a bad idea.  Cloth mat, sharp claws...  I dragged it all around the kitchen...
Great mat, total failure!

AYLA, IZA, AND MARLEY:  We wont be around forever.  The world is not likely to get a whole lot worse while we are here.  But we probably have siblings somewhere and they may have kittens and they might in turn.  So we are thinking of what kind of world those future generations of us cats might have to live in.

We want it to be a good one...

TBT:  I'm going to be 70 next year.  I have no children.  The world probably won't fall completely apart in the remaining years of my life and lineage.  If we totally screw the planet up, I don't expect I'll be around to suffer.

But that doesn't mean I have no relatives sending their offspring into the world for at least a few generations.  I care about my nieces and nephew.  They deserve a world and a good life too.

More importantly,  I have to say that, while I haven't participated in the generational game of passing along genes so as to care for individuals, I care very much about the future of humanity as a whole.  I want us to survive, thrive, and spread...

We won't escape the limitations of one planet if we ruin it before we can get "out there"...

Sometimes TBT tosses treats around. 
This is the aftermath...  We look around for any we missed.  But we don't miss many...

Mostly, we just want him to toss more.

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY: Im just enjoying a little laptime.  We had our first frost last night, so everything is wet and cold outside. 
It will be dry soon though.  I dont worry about the cold much.  I would say its because Im a mancat, but it doesnt bother Iza much either.
Oh, I see Dad has been playing with the color and light again...
