Sometimes a mancat just needs to relax. I needed to rest, as my training can be very exhausting. So what's better than sleeping? Sleeping next to a toy of course. I can open my eyes, bat it around and then go back to sleep.
Does it get any better than this? Well, maybe if I had a bowl of treats next to me...
It's supposed to rain all day today. What's a kitty to do? The birds aren't singing today, the sun's not shining and I have no motivation. Maybe I'll just sleep all day!
I wanted to address some of the comments from yesterday's Wordless post. Yes, I was hanging upside down. I had been cuddling with Jen on the couch when suddenly I decided to have some fun. I leaned back, stretched out and tried to see if I could touch the floor. Frank took some pictures of it. Notice the purple blanket? Jen keeps that on the loveseat because other than my hammock it's my favorite place to sleep.
Don't forget that tomorrow is International Box Day!!
I'm going to go find a place to sleep the day away. If any of you cats see the sun can you send it my way?
Over the last few months, I have learned the importance of saying thank you. I thank Jen and Frank every day for giving me a furever home. I cuddle with them, give the headbutts and just remind them how much I love them both.
But today is about saying thank you to some friends. My good friends Franklin, Dobby and Tasha ran a giveaway on their site and I was the winner. I got the package on Friday and was SO excited!!
This was all the great stuff in the box I received!
As many of you know, I love lettuce. Until recently it was my favorite treat. That is, until I discovered a yummy little breakfast snack. I always try to steal milk when my humans are having cereal, but the other day I got a whiff of something else. Something delicious. What was it you ask? I'll show you.
That's right. Multigrain Cheerios. I don't like them too much when they are dry, but after they soak up a little milk they become little o's of goodness.
I eat them...
And eat some more, until the humans and I finish the bowl. I think they should give me my own bowl, but Jen said something about not wanting to clean up the aftermath. Whatever that means.
On another note, I found out this week that I won the giveaway sponsored by my good friends Franklin, Dobby and Tasha (and their human Katie)! I am so excited to be the winner! I will be sure to post pictures when the package arrives! My friends have inspired me to do my own giveaway. I feel like I should return the favor. So stay tuned. I'm sending Jen out to the pet store this weekend to pick up some cool stuff!
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.
My mancat training is getting rather intense now that I'm nearing its completion. Today, I will share another lesson I have learned. It is a kitty's duty to serve as an alarm clock for a human that is in danger of oversleeping. Seven days a week, it is my job to see that Frank gets woken up at 5:30. Sometimes, he goes back to sleep and then I have to wake him up again. I use many methods...knocking things over, running across the bed, putting the bitey on toes and smacking them in the face. I must do whatever it takes. But how could they be in a bad mood. This is what they see when they open their eyes...
