Mancat Monday

Marley:  Some evenings I just want to curl up on TBTs lap and nap.  Other nights, I want more serious attention.  This was one of THOSE nights. 
I heard a song on the magic music box that expressed it.  "He's got magic hands"...
I used to actually pass out sometimes from it when I was a kitten.  I'm a bit more used to used to it now, but the pleasure never goes away.
He knows JUST where to work his weerd clawless fingers...
Ayla, Iza, and I have discussed it.  We have tried to do the same for each other, but it doesn't seem to work.  I mean, we all enjoy being groomed by each other and doing it, but it isnt QUITE the same.
But who cares so long as he does it, right?   He even carefully rubbed off some mousie-bite scabs around my lips (some mousies object to being properly caught and get fierce - its like they dont unnerstand their purpose in life)!  Oh that felt good...
OK, here's a question for all.  Which is best to you about the Beins?  The Lap, The Scritchie-Fingers, or the Opposable Thumb?

Well, I think if I were a cat, I'd have to vote for the Opposable Thumbs, because they're what makes it possible for the beins to open cans of cat food.

Marley, did I just read a cat give a compliment to hoomans?! Today is a day to remember! MOL!

We cats have talents (no one can tread on TBTs back in bed like we do) but he also has special talents for scritching US.

That IS a compliment.

You sure are a happy guy Marley! I'd have to say all of the above is a good answer!

Marley, your face is truly expressing every word you purred out for us here. I feel that grateful too, so I know where you're coming from. Isn't it great when we just show our beans how much we love them and appreciate all the care they take for and of us? You are sure doing that. XXX

Marley, you are just one happy kitty. We love the wonderful smile on your face in the photos. Chin rubs are a hit at our household. Thanks for the share. Have a great Mancat Monday.

Elliott is the only lap cat here now. But we all enjoy the scritchies!

Thanks to your dad for the ant tips. Mom did put out three bait traps (she hid them from us). The hard part was that she couldn't figure where exactly they were coming from. Mostly they just materialized in multiple places, like Star Trek ants or something.

This is what I call getting loves. Can't beat it.

You are soaking that all up! Look at that face! All smiles and grins and contentedness!

I love the belly rub...so I guess that would be in the scritching department!
