Mancat Monday

Happy  Mancat Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day and here is some fun for you. I know Phoebe already showed you her flat Phoebe that she sent to her purrince for his birthday:


I have been wanting some flat cats since seeing the photos from BlogPaws. I asked around and there are places that make them for you like pancakepets , I am sure they are the sturdiest, but I can’t afford the $50 plus $15 shipping. Sammy’s Mom ( ) told me about Walgreens cardboard print outs. For a 9 by 11 cardboard photo it is $14.99, but they had a coupon for half off so I got one for Phoebe and one for Sammy.

Sammy is part of the Flat Scouts so he needed a flat Sammy to travel this summer. Here it is: 013He just needs his Dad to cut it out and contact paper him. I also had one of Phoebe made to so she can take a day off once in a while and not pose for photos. Next thing you know, Joanie is going to want one of her tummy and Lucy will want one for book review days.

One more fun thing, this Friday I am co-hosting Feeling Beachie’s Follow Friday Fill-In. I would love it if you would all participate. I love reading people’s answers to these. If you are interested just say so in the comments and I will email you the fill-ins for this week.

Joanie will be showing off that tummy again tomorrow and Stinky is going to show us her tongue.


    1. Yes , it will be fun. I am praying for the kitty’s Dad and my kitties are purring

  1. It’s a good thing I go with my human in person – I’m sure she couldn’t make a decent flat to save her life.

  2. Flat cats! OMC! What a good idea, MOL!

    Meowmy is workin alot this week, so we will have to pass on the fill in, even though it sounds like a lot of fun…sheesh, even now her inbox has ovfur 500 messages…yikes! She had ovfur 30 blogs too to comment on…now she wants to go to her night-night land:)

    1. 500 emails- yikes, I get upset when I have 20. I hope she can get caught up and get some sleep.

    1. I am sure your Mom will get you your flats- I hope you are having a fun vacation.

  3. M and D took a float me to ALaska one spring on a cruise ship. It was fun.. We were entertaining and hosting a stuffie pal from Germany and wanted to show him a good time. M just took one of my pictures and turned it into a 8 x 10 and took that instead of the real me.

    1. That was a great idea. I bet you liked the cruise, they have lots of shrimp and seafood 🙂

  4. WOW! Tummies and tongues this week huh? Can’t wait!!!!! Glad you got your “flats” done……mine is done too……maybe we can visit soon……….Mom’s still got to cut me out , etc. but soon!

    Love, Sammy
    p.s. package FINALLY coming to you today!

    1. My hubby still needs to cut ours out too so I don’t cut off an ear or something. That is sweet of you to send us a package, we look forward to it.

  5. My mum made flat cats of me and Eric a few years ago. The trouble was she didn’t choose the photos very carefully and I looked twice the size of Eric when it was really the other way round.

    1. That is too bad. I would love to see a photo of you near your flat.

  6. I’ve always thought the flat cats are so cool! What a neat thing that Walgreen’s does cardboard portraits. I didn’t know that. Sammy’s flat cat is really cute!

    1. Thank you, I just need my hubby to cut him out. I would probably cut off an ear or something.

  7. Wow! That is way simpler than how our Mommy made our flat cats – I wonder where they is….?
    Thanks for telling us

  8. guys…yur flatz bee rockin awesum…..we will tell de food gurl ta chex out walgreenz & see if we can get sum flatz made…we think they will come in handee when trubull iz a foot ~~ 🙂 ♥♥♥

    1. That is a good idea- any trouble, blame the flats and I bet you could write a very funny post about them too.

  9. Pawsum flat cats. Weez not had a chance to even stawrt finkin’ ’bout it. Mommy will have to figger sumfin’ out fur me cuz weez not have da gween papers to buy one. Have a gweat day.

    Luv ya’

    1. If you have a printer, you can just print one out and glue her to cardboard. That is basically how we made the Phoebe that went to her purrince. I had my hubby cover with contact paper to keep her a little sturdier.

    1. Thank you 🙂 We hope you have a good week too and that Momo’s surgery went well.

  10. A friend of ours made flats of us for BlogPaws this year which was really nice of her and really cool for us! We got to go to Nashville but didn’t have to deal with all the dogs and heat and humidity! 🙂

    1. That is the way to go 🙂 I wish I could make a flat of me to send grocery shopping.

  11. I love the way flat Phoebe rolls off the tongue. 🙂 I work for a print shop and we can print one on a heavy 12 x 18 paper for about $2. You just need to cut it yourself. If you want it even sturdier, you could glue a blank sheet behind it before cutting.

    1. That is a great deal. If I decide to flatten any more of my kitties, I will contact you. 🙂

  12. Great flat cats. My mom is working on getting dad to print a flat me. Then I will need to be but on sturdy board and sealed, THEN the fun begins. I hope to be able to visit you Sammy my pal.

    1. We want you to visit us-we can’t wait. Sammy will share his top bunk bed with you and you can see the photo of Maggie he has up there 🙂

  13. Mom needs to do the flat thing for Mau. She found a couple of photos that might work, but she’s afraid they will be really blurry when blown up. She plans to use Walgreens. It’s hard to tell here, but do you think Phoebe is blurry? We know Siddhartha loved getting that photo for his birthday.

    1. Mine look good, no blurriness 🙂 They usually have a little mark near the sizes that won’t come out good. We hope Mau will visit us 🙂
