HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. We have had a few warmer and sunny days. Lots of melting going on, so our snow is disappearing again.

Plus it is super quiet around here, mum is off gallivanting around somewhere. She said she would be home today. Good, then I can sit on her and make her stay home for a while.
Oh well, see you all Monday.

Throw Back Thursday

Ha, Derby is showing off his bottom below. I am more shy, I only show my bottom to mum when I want belleh rubs!

We had snow, it all melted, now we have snow and it is supposed to all melt again. It is furry windy out and mum caught the snow blowing off the naybor's house. That is what mum calls a cold video, makes you cold just to watch it.
 Me, I just stay all cuddled up with mum and soak up her warms!

Funky Fang Shui Friday from January 18, 2008

Ensure that you get in touch with your inner kitten. Playfulness is good to keep you young.
I love playing at any time of the day or night. Lately I have been playing with mum's light that she has on a table in the sleeping room. I like to push it over and chew on the shade. I have been starting my play at very dark o'clock in the morning. Mum is not happy as I wake her up.

She says she needs her beauty sleep. Yeah, I guess I would agree with that. So mum is telling me that if I continue to do this, I will get excluded from her sleeping room. It is going to get furry cold and I like to snuggle and sleep with her when it gets cold. I guess I better behave!

Woohoo, weekend time!

ManCat Monday

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy to a friend. - Martin Luther King Jr.

Today is the day we honor the guy whose quote is above. So we need to spread love all over the place so we have more furiends. That is true of the cat blogosphere, we have so much love and furiends all over the place.

Winter is coming back, not as cold and some snow is to come. Mum doesn't have anywhere to go, so we can sit and watch the snow come down. Started to snow late on Sunday night.

We did lots of fevver watching this weekend. We were seeing lots of birds and some birds we don't see often and we were seeing lots of them. Above is a red poll and below a siskin.

You can see them in big groups on the ground. With no snow it was hard to pick them out and figure out just exactly who they were.
Mum watched a tiny bit of the feetsball. She was bummed that the ViQueens won at the last second of the game.
 Me, I was just hanging out with mum as she readed her book or worked on the puter. I get lots of loves and especially tummeh rubs. I loves tummeh rubs!
Have a wonderful week everyone.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Hope all is well. We have a bright and sunny day with no snow on the ground. It is cold, but mum says if we had snow on the ground it would feel worse. But then I don't have to go outside and mum hasn't been outside yet either.

Mum slept in a bit, I had to pounce on her a few times to get her out of the sleepy spot. Heck I even through in a few love bites to her arm. That always gets her going as she feels I might attack her head and face! No, I don't think I would do that.
I got a nice warm and sunny spot to hang out on for now. Mum's lap and sunshine coming through the windows.

Happy weekend everyone.

Throw Back Thursday

 First it is Thursday and during the nice time of the year the girls do the garden report. We found out yesterday that the founder of the Society of Feline Gardeners, Jonesie went to The Bridge. So Garden Thursday will be continued in her honor.

Little Jonesie all dressed up and ready to garden!

Our weather is strange, we were in the deep freeze last week, this week it is super nice. Mum said it was very spring like out on Tuesday. Sunny, warm, gentle breezes. Mum said it won't last long, we should be cold by later today. Me and mum will watch from inside and be all snug.

Today we continue with Derby's Throw Back Thursday. Interesting that ten years ago there wasn't much snow. Plus mum had an injured finger! Not allowed, you gotta be able to do treats!

Funky Fang Shui Friday from January 11, 2008

Don't be afraid to show your softer side, but remember to rule with an iron paw. I love to cuddle up with Mr T Bear. but can keep mum under my paw as needed.

It snowed again on Thursday night into Friday, otherwise most of our snow was gone, all that was left was where it had been piled up from shoveling. Below is a picture mum took on Wednesday afternoon.
Mum's finger is OK, but it has to stay under wraps and splinted so she won't bend it. Bending it might make the stitches pop and re-open the cut. She unwraps it to clean it, put medicine on it and then wrap it up again. It is her right index finger and she is right handed. Plus that is her treat feeding hand, so it better heal quick, I need more treats.

WooHoo Happy Weekend.

Mancat Monday

I am pent up in a frowsy lodgings, where there is not room enough to swing a cat. - Tobias Smollett

We have enuf room here to swing me around, although mum would never swing me around. She loves me too much for that.

The deep freeze is over! Yipee. Not quite open window time, but wonderful enuf so that there wasn't any icy edge on the fevver baff. It was nice so that mum could actually clean the baff really good for the fevvers. 
 Not warm enuf to not hang out in the ham-mick to be warms with the heaty thing blowing under it. But then I had to go hang out with mum, she has been sleeping poorly at night, but at least yesterday she took a wonderful nap in the afternoon. She ignored the feetsball games for the most part and just took it easy.
 Me, I came and sat on her so I knew she would stay put and rest. She felt so much better after her nap. So if your humans are feeling icky, get them to take them to take nap.

Have a wonderful week!

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. For us the sun has risen and is shining in our front windows. The weather guessers say this will be the last really cold day for a while. I hope so.

So me and mun stay warm by staying inside. We watch the outside stuff and marvel how others are out and about on these cold days. Like fevvers and sqwerls.
 One of the goldy finches coming for a drink. Mum refills the bath daily but with the extreme cold it gets all icy around the rim. Somehow the fevvers don't mind sitting on the cold ice with their feet.
 We have been seeing Mr Hawk often the past few weeks, coming by looking for something he can eat. Mum says he can have the sqwerls, she counted 7 of them in the yard the other day, all eating around the feeders. Well, except this guy!
Plus the fevvers are so brave they are even taking baffs! Mum just shivers seeing them getting all wet when it is so cold out.
Of course you want to see me, well here I am in a moovie. This is extreme closeup of me on mum's lap the other day. Can you spy my one dark whisker? Mum says it makes me look even more handsome.
That is is for now, stay warm if you are in the cold area. Don't hurt yourself if you have lots of snow to clear. Happy weekend.

Throw Back Thursday

Yikes, hope all are keeping warms, it is still cold here. Mum does go out for little bits for fresh airs. She needs to feed the fevvers or do a quick brush off of the snow from the drive.  Plus we see our buddies in the way south are getting snow and cold. You all be safe now!

 Now we haven't gotten much snow so far this winter, so if the mousies and voles come out to run around. You can see their tracks in the snow. This was taken last Caturday and mum says it is getting bigger and bigger with more trails. Yep, I see them, and I go crazy jumping from window to window to see them.
 Today's flashback is Derby showing off his paw. It was cold back then too.

 Funky Fang Shui Friday from January 4, 2008

Mighty is the paw that rests quietly. Your paws have to rest sometimes. Then when rested you use them to whap things or run around.

Having so much fun with everyone coming over to watch the birdies. Since it has been cold here the birdies are around a lot to eat. They gotta eat lots so they can keep warm living outside.
Mum came home tonight and the first thing she did, after giving me a few pets, was to go outside in the cold and fill up all of the feeders.

I got mum good yesterday morning. She had washed her face, brushed her teeths and refilled my water bowl in the bathroom. She was putting her clown face on and heard me licking, but I was not drinking from my bowl, but from her toothy brush that was wet. She moved it to where I couldn't reach it. HEHE.

WooHoo, the weekend is here. Hope everyone has a good one. We are going to watch the snow melt!

Mancat Monday - Happy Mew Year.

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch. - Leo Dworken

Happy Mew Year! Hope 2018 brings you good stuff in your life and the lives of your humans. We would like the usual stuff of peace and loves. 
 Sitting by mum while she works on the puter. I like sitting  here, I push my paws under the puter to where it is all warms. Nice to get the paws toasty!
 Plus you can see the new blankie mum has been working on. She is making good progress and should be done soon. She did much of this while she was watching the feetsball games today.
 Mum does not plan to stay up until midnight. I will be on my usual patrol at midnight.

Final Feetsball Report  for The Pack - they lost, they look bad. They can all go home and think about how bad things were this season and in some cases how back they played. Mum is hoping that a few of the coaches get the boot. Maybe a few people in the front office too.

So, Happy 2018, let's make it a good one!

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy last Caturday of the year 2017. Not sure how much partying we will be doing. It is supposed to still be so cold, so hard to be outside. Mum has gone out a little bit each day this week but not out for long.

So what did I get for Christmouse? Fevver butt mousies! I loves them.
I love to bat them around, then at times I will pick them up and drop them by mum. Then she tosses them and I chase them around. Yesterday I brought it into the sleepy spots and was pouncing on it and mum early in the morning. I thinks I woke her up good. Time to get up lady and play with me.

Plus last night she fixed herself some berries and put the whipping cream on them. Yep, I got more of the cream to lick. I like the holly-daze cuz there is so much fun goods to steal and eat.

Cellybrate responsibly this weekend. I want to see you all next year!

Throw Back Thursday

 Happy Thursday! Super cold here, it is been below zero Fahrenheit overnight and not getting into double digits in the positives. Hopefully it will warm up soonest. Here is me sitting on mum's lap the other day and what it looked like outside. BRRRRRR. Mum has only gone out a little bit, like to feed the fevvers and fill out their water bath.

 Plus I found this pic on her phone. She was off to visit her furiend for Christmouse dinner and she got to see Shelby, the Irish Terrorist. Shelby is getting to less of a terror as she gets older, but while mum was there she stole a cookie off the cookie plate. Bad doggie!

So what was Derby up to back in 2007? Playing in the water!

Fung Fang Shui Friday from December 28, 2007

Test all clear liquids carefully, don't expose yourself to dangerous depths of water.
I am just tasting what is coming out of the tap. Tastes OK to me. I do have to be careful in the hot rain room. But I have learned that once all of the gurgling stops, then the water is gone and I can jump in to the tub and I won't get my paws too wet.

Plus you don't want to get into other liquids, that are not drinkable, if you know what I mean. Like the humans litterbox thingy. Blech.

WooHoo, it is the weekend already!! Nice thing about holiday weeks, the beans don't have to be at work as much. They can stay home and play with us.

Remembering Derby

Me nnd mum had a nice Christmouse and will share what happened another day.

Today is Derby's Bridge Day. We miss the big guy, gone three years now.

So my dear brofur, and mum's first adult cat, we will share a few pictures. These are from 2005, Derby's first year with mum.

Mancat Christmouse

Guess we can call this a barely white Christmouse. Not enuf snow to completely cover the ground, but at least something white.
 Top pic about 9 AM and below about 1 PM. Mum should probably shove the snow off the drive.
 Feetsball Report on The Pack - they losted to the ViQueens as mum expected. It was so bad she kept flipping the TV to another channel to watch other stuff. One more game, then they can all go home.

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and lineage of David,) to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2: 1-20 (KJV)


Merry Christmas
God Bless You All.
