Mancat Monday

A mancat is not afraid to roll around on the thawing muddy ground.


While Iwas rolling, Flynn was over the far end of the field and caught a mousie. You might just be able to see him as a little blur just to the right of the fence.

Look how lovely and muddy my paws are.

I got it all down my side too. After all my hard work getting dirty, mum cleaned it off me when we got back indoors. She can be mean like that sometimes.

Sparkle said...

I think Flynn got the best of it. I'd rather catch a yummy mouse than roll in mud and wind up having to be, yuck, cleaned.

Well, that was just RUDE for your Mom to wash away all your hard werk.

Dirt is very manly! We didn't catch sight of Flynn, though. Mmm, mousies! Yum!

Rolling in the mud & mouse catching!

SuziQCat said...

Looks like loads of fun. Our mom would clean us off too...

Cindy said...

Great mud in your furs! Hope you showed mom you weren't happy about getting cleaned up.

Harry Spotter said...

Mums can be like that. My mum is always cleaning me too. Was that mouse yummy? I have never had a real mouse just play ones.

Grrreta said...

We can't believe your mom washed off your paws after she saw how much work you went to making them so muddy and lovely. At least she took a picture of how beautiful they looked.

Cats in trees said...

Wooo! Rock 'n' Roll!

We do hope Flynn saved some of that mouse for you.

ABBY said...

Did you say mud?

*wooo hooooo*

Let's party in the mud!

CCL Wendy said...

I don't think your mom knows that getting dirty is the whole point, Eric! How harsh is that to have all the signs of your hard work washed away?

I must say, though, that rolling around is not conducive to catching mousies. Flynn can attest to that!

William said...

Cleaning yourself is your job! I thought your toes wer perfect!

P.S. I'm embarrassed to admit that only today did my mom find your Christmas card. Moms! Thanks, guys! :-)
