My Prize!

Two weeks ago the kitties at 15 and Meowing had a trivia quiz with a How to Massage your Cat book and some crochet toys as the prize. Summer got all the answers right and won the prize. I also got all the answers right but not as quickly as Summer, so mom Ellen said she would send me some of her lovely crochet toys too.

They arrived last week and there is a big blue fish, a little orangie colour fish and a drumstick.

I had a chew on Big Blue.....

then I had to rub my face on his nippy goodness.

He told me he would like a good bunny kicking, so of course I obliged.

Then I had to give him a bit more face rubbing.

Then it was time for the drumstick. Did you know that drumsticks smell like nip? Mmmmm!

Little orange fishie thought he was going to escape my clutches. Ha, no chance!

Thank you mom Ellen and your 15 kitties! I love all my new toys

Sunday Selfies.

The sun made an appearance at last so I decided to sit on the towbar of the field roller and enjoy it.

Uh oh, I hear mum coming up behind me. What does she want.

She reminded me I have to do my selfie. Okay, but let's make it quick so I can get back to enjoying the sun.

There we are, job done!

You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.

Now for Eric's Day flashback, this was originally an
Easy on Sunday which comes from May 2009.

I'm not sleeping I'm just resting my eyes. I have to keep guard in case any slugs or caterpillars eat mum's plants.

After my lookout duties for bugs and slugs, there's nothing quite like a good stretch.

Sunday Selfies.

I have been practising all week.
I have to remember to look at the camera when I press the button.
I mustn't press too hard or the camera moves and I look blurry.
I mustn't move or that makes me blurry too.
Did I do okay?

You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.

It's Raining Mousies!

I am this week's winner for Nellie's Finish the Sentence game!
My answer was:

You know it's the best day ever when..... it rains mousies.

Thank you Nellie and your mommy for my cartoon. I love it!

Wouldn't it be great to stand outside with your mouth open and just wait for the mousies to drop in!!

Mancat on a Mission.

Come on mum and follow me.

Don't make too much noise.

Hurry up! You're lagging behind.

Keep back, I don't want you interrupting.

I have to check that mousie hole again.

It doesn't look like he is at home.

I might as well eat grass instead.

Well that was a waste of time!
