Mancat Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays Blog Hop today. Polar Bear loves this toy rat from IKEA. He has one upstairs, but this is the first thing he goes for when he is visiting downstairs. He lives upstairs with his 2 wives, but they all visit down here when supervised. He is sweet, but likes to walk up to the other kitties and whap them with those big mitts of his.

All this heat and humidity is getting to me so I am only doing one hop today. I do want to tell you about a new cat blog, I am not being paid to tell you, but I like to help new bloggers, especially when I like their mission. They want to help spread the word that cats should not be thought of as bird killers when there are plenty of other things that kill birds. Also, the strong bond between humans and cats. It is called Cats, People and the Environment.

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.

Mancat Monday

Happy Mancat Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so I decided to make a toy for the kitties.I know kickers are very popular and my kitties didn’t have one. I also know that kitties love that crinkle sound and catnip too. Sammy, one of my mancats will model it at the end of the post.

I bought a yard of fabric that was on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $3/yard. It is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day so I don’t know why it was on clearance. 003004Joanie is making sure I have all the supplies

I folded the fabric in half with the print side inside, then I added some batting and cut a strip. I used the sewing machine to sew the edges and left a small space at the end so I could turn it inside out.I stuffed it with plastic bags ( great way to recycle- Walmart ones crinkle best). I added some catnip and hand stitched the opening.

Here is Sammy enjoying it: 006009He is a big boy so it was the right size. I think I will make the next ones shorter for the other kitties.Sammy is hoping he can earn his Cat Scout badge in bunny kicking with these photos.

Have a great day everyone!

Happy Monday everyone! Phoebe said to thank everyone who read her post yesterday and let you know that she survived Lucy’s wrath.

Looks like my sticky P foiled me again. My mom called me laughing the other day. Apparently I wrote Joanie was having her teeth cleaned and her bum removed on Wednesday. Joanie is not having her bum removed, she is having a bumP removed. If anyone spots any typos, I won’t be offended if you comment on them- I would appreciate it.

I was trying to come up with something for Fun and Games Day and I remembered somethnig my niece made for KaChoo. Sarah made these when she was about 8 years old :007KaChoo enjoyed them for many years and they got put into a decorative jar where I forgot about them. I tried them out on Sammy and Joanie and they love them. It is a stretchy plastic cord with a bow and the other has part of a milk top. I am sure you know this, but just in case, the toy is interactive and should be put away when you’re not playing with your kitty.

Sadly ,KaChoo passed away in 2010, but I am proud to say Sarah got a degree in Animal Science that same year and is now 26 and manager of a veterinarian practice.
