Mancat Monday

Being a mancat means you have to do lots of hard work to keep your property safe. We thought we would show you a typical Monday patrol so you can see how hardworking we are.


Eric: Any fresh earth piles must be checked out. There may have been rabbits digging here or even a badger. The nice fresh earth is good for pooping in though because we don't have to do much digging ourselves.

If there are any big holes I have to put my head down because you never know, there may be a rabbit down there.

Flynn: Keep your nose low to the grass to make sure you don't miss any introoder smells.

And when passing the pond have a quick look to see if there are any fevvers sitting on it or fishies swimming in it.

Eric: I walk through the daffodils because introoders always seem to leave their smell on them.

Flynn: And when I catch a strange smell, I floof my tail to let Eric know.

There are always a lot of mouse holes beside the stream so I put my paw in to see if anyone is home.

When we are sure everything is as it should be, we make our way back home......

..........and maybe have a quick rest on the way.

haha Boys do you ever get your nose bit? I would be too scared to put my head down a hole, but it is a good idea for pooping! So much less work :)

Brian said...

You two just work so hard, you really should take more breaks!

A cat must be vigilant when he has territory to defend. Fortunately, there are 2 of you to share the task. And as you say, it is full of interesting things.

Boy - you two guys - do have a lot of work to do.

My domain isn't half a big as yours - so I don't have as many places to check out.

Hey today is National Napping Day - so take a little nap and rest awhile.

Youse guys live in the BEST PLACE EVAR! I mean, you've got everything a cat could possibly want: fields with real, live creatures in'em, ponds with fevvers in'em, and trees and hedgerows with critters in'em and smells and horse poop an' a barn an a mum and dad what take you walkin' in all that GLORY!

I wish I lived with you guys.Couldn't I be an honorary Allern Farmer?
