Mancat Monday

The mancats have all had a great week!
Harrison has reclaimed his bed in the guest room now that our housemate has moved out!  He is so happy and full of himself! 
Flynn is teaching Rusty how to ride in the stroller.  Sorry Flynn, you can't ride on the top when we are outside! 
Catnip party!  l-r Oliver (on the hardwoods and hard to see) George, Rusty, Harrison and Flynn

Harrison hears a fly in the blinds...

Auntie comes and helps him... 

Success!  Harrison eats the fly!

Hope you all are doing well.  Thanks for taking time to check in on our crazy family.

Mancat Monday on Tuesday

Wow!  Where has the time gone?  The mancats and I are just enjoying life!  This blog started to keep friends and family updated on medical issues with the boys.  Thankfully, everyone is healthy, and only going to the vet for routine stuff!  We like routine!  Now, if I can get into a routine of posting that will be great.
The panthers all enjoying the windows open a few weeks ago.  It is too warm now for open windows. 
Flynn asking to play with one of his favorite toys.  The string is so short, and the toy is gone, but he loves it! 
Our temporary housemate moved out and Harrison is super happy.  He was nervous around her, so it is nice to see him being comfortable again. 
Oliver is king of the roost...or at least he thinks so! 
Rusty is playing hard and enjoying morning snuggles.  He seems to be holding steady at 11 pounds. 
Watching it rain...all the cats love this chair beside the french doors.  There are three bird feeders around the bush at the fence. 
Harrison has been asking to swim more lately.  We ran the water until it was past his elbows.  I think the noise of the water running bothered him more than the height of the water.  He jumped out, but when we turned the faucet off, he came back! 
Oliver and Harrison snuggling.  Harrison went and joined Oliver in the bed...his personality is coming out more since our guest left.

Harrison moved over to sit with Cousin Georgie. That bed is larger, so they had more room!

Well, that's it...the boys are enjoying life and are all healthy.

Happy Birthday Tanner

Happy Birthday Tanner!  This is your first birthday at the Bridge.  I know you are loving life there and playing with all your brothers.  We miss you everyday still, but I am thankful for all the time we had together.  I love all the memories we shared, and remember you fondly.  You were a great boy.  Love you lots my Big Orange T!

Mancat Monday

Lots of photos again from a full week of activity!  The boys are all doing well.
Easter, or really any weekend, is the perfect time for fresh cat nip.  Flynn believes he should be brought some every time you go outside!  Top to bottom - Oliver, Harrison, Rusty, Flynn, Cousin Georgie 
The boys were blessed with crocheted eggs filled with catnip from a friend.  Each egg is in the boys color.  Sorry for poor photo quality.  They were excited about their eggs and not sitting still!  Here is Oliver with his orange egg. 
Harrison checking out his red egg.

Flynn loves his teal egg...

Rusty loved his navy egg too, but would not sit near it for a photo...it was usually rolling down the hall for him to hatch! 
Speaking of Rusty, he finally discovered this toy. It's been sitting in the living room his entire life!

  A portion of the track is covered by a blanket, which makes it even more fun...where does that ball go?
Getting ready to pounce...he entertained himself for at least an hour!

We had a beautiful weekend, so open windows were necessary.  The panthers wasted no time in sniffing the fresh air, and watching all the birds in the yard.

This was Rusty's first Easter, so I picked up this cute bow tie for him.  He did pretty good about wearing it.  I fastened it on and started playing with his favorite toy, so he forgot about it.  He looks so handsome!

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter and Passover weekend.

Mancat Monday

Lots of photos in this post.  The boys are all doing well.
Harrison and Flynn got a new toy from a friend for their birthdays.  Everyone loved it! 
There are almost enough balls/levels for each boy to have their own.  Here's Harrison giving the ball a whack.  
Rusty was a bit afraid at first, but once he saw the others playing he gave it a go...  
They also got a new scratcher...it looks bigger in the photos online!  Of course, Flynn is a giant baby! 
Flynn checking out the kitchen from on top of the fridge... 
Rusty found the purple puff.  When I glanced over and saw him, I first thought he was Tanner.  Had to do a double take! 
Rusty now weighs 10 pounds.  He is slowing down on the amount he gains each week now, which is good.  I'm hoping he is about done growing. 
Oliver has the paw dangle down... 
Flynn is getting too big for this bed! 
Everyone playing nicely together.  Love my family!

Happy Birthday Harrison

Happy Birthday to my sweet Harrison.  He is still trying to find himself in the world.  He has moments of asking to snuggle, and moments of running away and hissing because you have frightened him.  He reminds me a lot of Smokey, who took 5 years before he would sit on my lap.

Harrison talks a lot, sometimes he is asking for food, sometimes he is looking for his baby, Rusty, and sometimes he is just chatting away for no reason.  He loves the water...I'll probably fill the bathtub for him this weekend so he can swim.  He gets along with everyone and is a fun addition to the family.

Here's to many more birthdays with you Harrison.  I can't wait to watch your personality blossom as the years pass by.
