Mancat Monday

Flynn: One of the first things to do when we are on field patrol is to find a good lookout spot to watch out for introoders.

When I am sure there are none around, I go and sharpen my claws on our big outdoor scratching post.

Eric: While Flynn is scratching I will go and check out the mousie situation.

I have caught two here. Mum took one away from me, but I ate the other one before she had chance to get it.

None under the wood, I'll just check the grass.

I have tapped around with my paw but it looks like my luck is out.

I will go and check in the hay barn instead.

Mum says we have had most of the mousies and the ones we haven't had have left home.

Flynn: While Eric is on a wild goose chase, or should that be a wild mousie chase, I will sit on the water trough and catch a few rays.

You two have lots of places for those mousies to hide, I'm sure you will track down one in no time!

Sure looks like you are having perfect weather for mousing, prowling and scratching. Enjoy yourselves and have a great week.

We enjoy joining you on your walks. You always have such fun!

OKcats said...

You have to keep checking those mousie spots every day, else they'll think they're safe and will come back with all of their friends and family!

Eric, good job eating that mousie on the sly! We are working on snagging a fat pigeon here. Flynn, Sweet Pea is on her way to add her claw marks next to yours!

What a great scratching post!

The two of you are excellent mousers!

Sparkle said...

Making the rounds, I see! I have to say, your outdoor scratching post is beyond awesome!

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

We bet you guys are about the best mousers around!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

WOW! Sunbeams and mousies! Could life get enny better?

Punapippuri said...

We are so jealous of your kingdom and mousie search - there's no snow there and it is all green! We love the extent of your wanderings, very very manly indeed.

Furkidsmom said...

Wow, you cleaned up the whole mousie population??????? Impressive!!

Huffle Mawson said...

It's good to be vigilant about those mousies.

The Monkeys said...

We are pretty sure that any mousies left are very stupid or very brave with you two there!

Marg said...

Oh my you two boys are such handsome mancats. Sure looks like you are very busy. That trough looks like the best place Flynn. Hope all of you have a marvelous week.

The Island Cats said...

We think all the mousies left the farm...they are skeerd of you two!!

We love LUNA said...

Ginger Jasper said...

You two boys have such a great place to wander in and are sooo lucky. I think there will be more mousies for sure, they will just be lying low for a while.. Enjoy your domain my friends.. Hugs GJ xx

Madi and Mom said...

Mancat Monday is my favorite day. I have to pace myself to be sure I don't hyperventilate!!!
Hugs Madi

Kea said...

You guys always have the best adventures, we so enjoy visiting!

Your mum could be right about the mousies having packed their little bags and moved out...but we kinda think a new family will move in and provide lots of tasty treats!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We wonder if the mouses moved somewhere warmer during the winter - when they know the sun is out they may come back to tease you both!
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Penny said...

Thank goodness the weather is improving (only two more weeks till spring arrives) and you get to go out and patrol a bigger area.

I've made it out on the porch and out to my favorite bush but that is as far as I got. Still kind of cold here and there are still some piles of snow around. I don't like snow.

Purrs,
Genghis

The Whiskeratti said...

We bet all the mousies have run away so as not to face you! They know all about how Fearless and Fierce you two are.

Parker said...

It looks like the two of you had a very nice day. I envy your ability to go out and explore. But where we live, it's a very, very bad idea.
Smoochies!

Kari said...

Flynn! When you are on patrol, you mean business, don't you. With your advanced technique, those nails must be razor sharp.
All introoders will keep away. Far away!

Quite the mouser there, Eric. Two! We are very impressed with your skill . And you got to eat one! Do you eat it all or just nibble pieces off. (we remember hearing about you boys gastric issues post mousie munching. ) Although we can't join you on your adventures, we CAN dream, can't we?

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We love to go on field patrol with you guys....even if it is just a virtual patrol!

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

What fun you fellas always have.......would you consider running a Bed and Breakfast for kitties???? We'd want to be on the list as your first guests!!!!!!!
