Mancat (In Training) Monday: It's All About Balance

Many of you experienced mancats have taught me the importance of balance. While I am the mancat (almost) of the house, it's important to balance my training activities with a bit of sweetness. No matter what I do at night or early in the mornings, I always take the time to snuggle with the humans when they get home from work. The first thing I do when one of them walk in is to run over and start pawing at their legs. Then, they pick me up and cuddle with me. This always makes them forget anything I have done which annoyed them.

On Friday, I curled up in Jen's lap when she got home from work.

I got some chin rubs out of it!

  2. Tuck, this is exactly the point we made on our Mancat Monday post -- that to be a real mancat you must be confident enough to show your softer side as well as your manly side. Well done!

  18. You are a very handsome almost-mancat, Tuck! We didn't see how old you are, though one of the comments here suggests almost a year? You'll be a heartbreaker to the ladycats as you get older, no doubt.

    Congrats on your giveaway win, we saw that mentioned on the relevant blog (hard to keep them all straight, we're still new and learning everybuddy's names). :)

    Thanks for stopping by our blog and we'll be back to visit you again!

    Purrs and hugs,
