The Friday Flashback.

This week the Friday Flashback comes from April 2009 and I was doing some of my mancat duties, so this post was originally a:

MANCAT MONDAY

Dad was working down in one of the fields clearing back some undergrowth. I knew he would appreciate some help so I made my way down there.

It looked like hard work so I meowed to him to see if he needed a break.

I think he was glad to stop and we enjoyed a bit of man time togevver.

Yup, he definitely needed that rest.

I stopped to help him for a while, then told him I'd better get back or mum might be wondering where I was.


I looked back as I went up the hill and could see he was hard at work again.

  10. What a great employee you have - your male human takes breaks when you tell him it's time! My human just keeps plowing along at her desk. She does not know that frequent breaks make you more efficient at your tasks.

  31. You're a very manly mancat, Eric and your Dad is a very manly man, so it's wonderful to see you two man-types be so tender with each other. A real man or mancat isn't afraid to show affection.

    You two are a marvelous sight to see!
