ManCat Monday

For today's ManCat Monday entry,
I would like to show you something special...

My manly whiskers!

Mommy tells me that when I was just a tiny BoyCat,
she would cradle me in her arms like a human baby.

But instead of looking up lovingly into her face,
I would be too busy trying to catch my own whiskers.

Come, let me adjust the camera to give you a better view.

Can you see my whiskers more clearly now?

What's manly about my whiskers is that they used to be longer,
but now many of the ends are broken off.

That's because I do manly things like wrestle rough and tough...
with my girlie sister.

The Dramatic Chomper of Biscuits

This is Slash telepathically asking for biscuits.

This is Slash greedily accepting his biscuits.

This is Slash violently chomping on his biscuits.

This is Slash gulping down his biscuits.

And this is Slash mewing for even more biscuits.

It is always fun to watch Slash eat
because he does it with great gusto and drama.

Not only does he have a myriad of 'meal time' facial expressions,
he chews with an exceptional amount of force and noise.


Note the smoothness of his nose as he positions the biscuits in his mouth.

Behold the wrinkles and stress lines
that have popped up from the sheer force of his bite!

Here's another look...

From a smooth and relaxed face...

To a lined and tensed one.

The funny thing is...
I feed Slash and Bronzy the same biscuits.
She eats normally,
but he chomps on them as though I am feeding him bits of granite.

I'm surprised he hasn't cracked a tooth
or come down with a migraine from all that dental exertion.

But, in spite of all that hardcore chomping,
it is safe to say that Slash enjoys his biscuits just the way they are.

It isn't easy being a pretty boy

Over the past week,
we have had many visitors in the house.
Everyone who sees me thinks that I am a girl.
Even after Mommy has corrected them,
they still refer to me as a girl.
(Bronzy has the opposite problem.)

Mommy told me not to be angry.
She said that it is because I have a girlish sort of beauty.

What is that supposed to mean?

The Awesome Blog Award

Beautiful Abby has given us the Awesome Blog Award.

Thank you, Abby!

And now to keep this award circulating,
we will share 7 things about ourselves
and then give this award to 15 other blogging friends.

Here we go!

1) We are obsessed with the printer.
We still can't decide if it is a living thing.

2) Slash gets extremely tensed when he eats or drinks.
Every tiny little sound will shock him into complete paralysis.

That's why it takes him forever to finish his meals.

3) I enjoy lying on books.
Especially when someone is reading them.

4) Slash loves tucking his paws under the bedroom door.
We don't know why.

5) I like relaxing inside bags.
It makes me feel like a present.

(Don't worry. This bag has no bottom. It's an opened bag.)

6) Remember when I got spayed and
my internal stitches had burst open?

The scar tissue from that has left my tummy hanging quite low.
Everyone who meets me thinks that I have had many litters of kittens.
They don't know that I am a virgin cat!

7) After a messy poop and Mommy wants to wipe his butt,
Slash will perform the Crocodile Death Roll.

It doesn't work.
He still gets his butt wiped.

We hope you enjoyed learning about us.
And now, we are most happy to pass the Awesome Blog Award to...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa
Sam & Lucy
Rumblepurr & Flufflebum
Sweet Praline
George, Tipper, Max & Misty

Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!!

Terror Tuesday: Scary Scene

Cut! This scene doesn't feel scary enough.

Still not scary enough.

Assistant Prawn, you need to be here for this to work.

We need more intrigue and suspense so crouch here and look there.

Better! Okay, roll the tape!

An Exciting Game with our New Wand

Look at our new toy!
Do you know what this means?
It's play time!

Slash won the coin toss so he got the first go at the wand.

Just look at the focus in his eyes and all that bouncing floof!

He's got a pretty firm grip on the wand.

But can he hold on to it?

Oh! He lost the wand!

It's my turn now. I waste no time and make an aggressive attack.

As the wand flicks upwards, I leap to catch it.

But no luck! I return to earth empty-handed.

Slash chooses to ambush the wand from under the coffee table this time.

He gives it a massive bite but loses the wand once more!

I eye the wand carefully and calculate my moves.

I swipe!

I chomp!

I tumble!

I pounce!

But I just can't hang on to it!

Slash reaches out and balances on his tippy-toes.

And manages to snatch the wand with his claws.

Hey, wait! He's running away with the wand!

That's cheating, Slash! Give it back!

PS. Thank you for such a fun wand, Aunty Jennet!
