Mancat Monday

We have been getting a bit of sun at last so I am making the most of it and going for a stroll.

Ah, here is our favourite oak tree.

Better give it a sniff to make sure no introoders have been trespassing here.

I think I may take a leap at it and go up to the top branches.

Maybe not. This is high enough. Going to the top is too much like hard work.

I will just sharpen my claws on it instead.

We agree with you, going to the top is way too much work. You've got a good view right where you are!!

That looks like a great place to sharpen your claws. I don't think I'd like to work so hard as to climb it either...

What a great tree! We can see why it's your favorite!
Your weather looks nice! We got snow finally and now the cold air is here too! :(

How neat that you can sharpen them on that tree. My kitty sisters like to sharpen on the banister and oh boy does that make mom unhappy. hehe

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

Wow, that looks like an old tree - probably better not to climb all of the way to the top.

That's an awesome tree you got there, Eric!

That is a great tree. We bet its seen lots of kitty wear & tear. With such a prize , you better "water" it well and scratch it often so other kitties stay away from it.

Sparkle said...

Add some good scratches Eric! That way, everyone will know you've been there!

The trouble with going up is that you have to find a way down.

Eric, you're wise to ease into the week slowly. So scratching your claws on the base of the tree is a good warm-up to perhaps climbing it later this week. :-)

That's better than a scratching post Eric - we wish we had one of those to do our claws on.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

That is a great oak tree! It has many uses!

How great is that to have such an enormous oak tree? It's gonna take FOREVER to work it down to toothpicks.

Madi and Mom said...

What an excellent place to sharpen your man-claws. You have to always be ready to snag those pesky moles!!
You are looking mighty fine today.
hugs madi

That is a pretty impressive oak tree. I think it was wise to not climb it.
