Mancat Monday

On Saturday, I went to Cat Care Society for a seminar on multicat households.  Hanging out in the seminar room was my friend Mason!  He came to say hi to me a few times while the vet talked.  He also entertained everyone by scratching the vet's laptop bag and then plopping down on it. :)

After the seminar was over, I pet Mason for a while as everyone left.  Here, he's enjoying some nice rest after all the excitement.  

Remember, friendly, affectionate Mason is adoptable from Cat Care!  You can learn more about this great mancat here

Last week, we got The Sunshine Award from our great friend at My FURRY Interesting Life!  We were pleasantly surprised when they told us they had nominated us for the award.  We are very thankful and honored that they thought of us!  If you have never visited them, please click on the link above and say hello. :)

The rules for this award are to share 11 random facts about yourself, answering 11 chosen questions from the blogger who nominated you for the award, creating 11 questions of your own, and nominating 11 bloggers for the award.


1. I LOVE to sleep in my pink bed.  It sits on top of mommy's desk.  From there, I can watch everything that's going on.  I take wonderful naps here and supervise mommy while she helps us with our blog.  

2. I am the most talkative kitty in the house.  Before I jump up to mommy's computer chair or her bed, I will meow at her so she knows I'm coming.  

3. I wake mommy up EVERY day.  When her alarm goes off, I jump up on her bed and meow in her face until she pets me.  

4. I love to EAT more than anyone else in the house.  I will finish my foods very fast, and then go and bug Carmine and Jewel for their foods.  The mom has to supervise dinner time (when we get our wet foods) because if she doesn't, I'll steal everybody's food!!  I also love to eat our kibbles.  

5. I am TERRIFIED of water.  I will not go anywhere near a sink OR the kitty fountain the mom bought.  Running water is too scary!

6. I used to watch Meerkats before they took it off Netflix.  The mom should hunt some episodes down for me.  I would sit on the couch and stare and paw at the TV whenever they were on.  It was so exciting to watch!

7. I spend most of my day in a pretty cube with blue flowers on it.  I have lovely dreams about mousies and catnip there.

8. Some people think I look like an owl because I have really big green eyes.  

9. I dip my paw into the fountain and lick the water off of it a lot.  Hey, my paw gives the water a little flavor!

The Mom
10. I am very sensitive to temperature.  I am almost always either too hot or too cold.  

11. I am very loyal - to my cats and to my friends.  


These are the questions I was asked by My FURRY Interesting Life.

1. What was your favorite place that you've visited?
I've never had the chance to go outside the United States.  I visited San Francisco once, though, and that was pretty cool.

2. If you could choose one job in the world to have, what would it be and why?
If I could have any job, I think I would want to run an eating disorder hospital.  One that wouldn't turn away anyone due to lack of insurance or ability to pay.  Everyone who had disordered eating could be treated if they wanted the help.  That would be my ideal job in an ideal world.

3. Are you an oldest, middle, youngest, or only child?
I am an oldest.  I have one younger sister (who was born on the same day as me - three years later). I also have stepsibilings.

4. What is your favorite hobby?
I love sending and getting snail mail.  I have several penpals.  The letters really brighten my day, and I am sure my penpals like getting something other than bills in their mailboxes, too!  I also love to read.

5. What was the happiest day of your life?
Wow.  That's a hard one.  Maybe finding out that I got into my first-choice college.  The days I got my fur babies were pretty awesome, too :)

6. What is your favorite quote?
"If you love people, you have no time to judge them."
~Mother Theresa

7. What was the last thing you bought?
Groceries. And medicine. LOL.

8. What is your favorite season?
Spring.  It gets warm again and my birthday is in Spring.  My sister's birthday is also then, of course.  I love the growth of the flowers as well.

9. What is your favorite color?
Pink!  I love pink.  If something comes in pink (and other colors), I'll always go for the pink one.

10. What is your favorite book or series?
I absolutely loved the Harry Potter series.  I also really enjoyed "Handle with Care" by Jodi Picoult.  Right now, I'm reading "The Hunger Games" (about to start the third book) and it's also very good.

11. When was the last time you laughed and why?
Last night, I was drying dishes when I saw Carmine fly up to the refrigerator.  He grabbed the edge of the reezer door and was kicking his back feet to pull himself up.  This was the first time he'd ever jumped up there from the floor, and it was pretty hillarious!
