Mancat Monday

We have had a few dry days and some have even been sunny, so that means we can go for walks again.

We are looking for mousies, but it has been mild and wet this winter which means the grass kept growing. That means it is thick and matted underneath which makes it hard for us to get to them. It probably makes the mousies happy though.

We know they are here because we heard them squeaking.

But where are they?

Are they over there?

or over here?

Maybe when the horses have been in here and eaten the grass it will be easier for us.

They may have been in here, but it looks like the badger got here first.

Keep looking guys, they can't hide forever! Glad you have sunshine to enjoy!

Nerissa's Life said...

Ooohhhhh..... those mouses!

MoMo said...

Lucky you!!! I love roaming and rolling in thick grass. We only have a small lawn area, compared to your field.

Don't mind the 'zoom groom' brush but anything else, it's torture.

Angel and Kirby said...

We know you are great hunters and will find them!


If anycat can find those mousies, it's the two of you!

Mom and Audrey say you Mancats looks so cute looking for your mousies. (I can't actually say that, int's not manly to call other mancats cute).

Brian said...

I sure thought you were on their trail guys...maybe next time!

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

Yep, I think that you need to cut a deal with the horses.

The Cat From Hell said...

Hi Guys!
Wow! Look at all that green! I can't wait until I can hunt mice in the grass (instead of the snow)
Did you guys know they have pathes under the snow?

Sparkle said...

Difficult does not mean impossible - happy hunting, guys!

Laila and Minchie said...

Those are some pretty sneaky mousies you have there right now. Just be patient, your time will come to flush them out of their holes!

Prancer Pie said...

That badger is such a spoil-sport. Always ruining your good time!

Punapippuri said...

You are so lucky - all that grass, all those mousie possibilities. But watch out for the badgers

Hunting mousies must be very fun!

Madi and Mom said...

Eric and Flynn,
If I didn't have two brave mancat friends who are great explorers,
I've learned so much about the great out of doors.
Hugs Madi

Kari said...

The bagers got your mousies? Oh no! Those nasty introoders! But there are plenty to go around, though!
Even though you may be disappointed at having no catch, we so very much enjoy going along with you on the hunt!
Roaming the green fields, searching out the little squeaky sounds; must be heaven on earth!
