Mancat Monday

Trying not to wait so long between updates...all is well, except for a ton of rain!  We are thinking about building an ark!
Rusty helped me clean out Pumpkins tank...He watched her while she was hanging out in the playpen.

Flynn was excited to get a package the other day...

It is a Fair Trade cat bed!  Teddy was the first to check it out.

Pumpkin is eating more least a few bites a day.  She loves the hornworms that are in this salad.

Rusty finally checked out the new cat bed.

Then he decided to lay on this bed...he was roaming all around.

Harrison spends most of his day in the bed...

Finally, a group these panthers!

Harrison was happy we had a sunny day...soaking it all up!

Pumpkin got a new harness that so far, she can't get out of!  This will give her more freedom.

Teddy is growing up, and this is his last set of double fangs.  He still doesn't have any testicles, but his teeth are following the proper schedule!

Harrison got a new stick for his helicopter toy...he plays for a while and then just holds the toy in his mouth!

Flynn decided to help me work some this morning.  

Well, there you have it.  All is well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mancat Monday

 The boys and I have a relatively slow few weeks...all is well.
Miss Pumpkin is growing.  She is now almost 11 inches long and weighs 4.5 ounces.  She is living her best life and eating lots of bugs and worms.  She is still not a huge fan of her greens and veggies though.

Favorite bugs are Dubia Roaches, Hornworms, Silkworms, and Waxworms.  

Dislikes: Superworms and crickets

Rusty has found a new spot to watch tv...the hole in the couch cushions!

I ended up with Covid late January.  Thankfully, it was a super mild case, and I thought it was just a slight cold until I lost my taste and smell.  That triggered me to get tested through work, and a positive result was issued the next day.  The following day I was having the monoclonal antibody infusion done which is supposed to shorten and lessen the virus load.  I felt horrible that night as the infusion kicked in, but then started improving day by day.  I am now cleared to work and leave the house!

We had a very small snowfall, so the boys had to check it out.  Harrison and Rusty decided to stay on the porch.

Flynn went looking in the garden for the catnip...

This was Cousin Teddy's first snow and he seemed to enjoy it!

Harrison was making a cute tongue bleep the other day...I don't know that I've ever seen him do this.

Rusty wasn't sure what to do because Harrison took the heated bed...

Rusty helped me do some cleaning.  He loves when I spray the mattress with Lysol before putting on clean sheets.

Well, that's what we've been up to.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hoping to get on a more regular schedule again!

Mancat Monday, but on a Tuesday

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
Here is our card in case yours didn't arrive.  International folks, they were put in the mail a bit later than normal, so I hope your cards have arrived by now :)
Cousins Lenny and Teddy are doing well.  I am glad that Lenny has a friend now.  He is acting more like a cat and loves to wrestle Teddy.

Pumpkin Spike is growing and loving life.  We found out that it is a girl!  It is hard to say she, after all these years of having boy cats :)  She may just be one of the boys too.

Flynn is helping me prepare Pumpkin some kale for her salad.  She gets greens daily, but doesn't seem to actually eat very many of them.  She is a bug eater mainly right now.

Cousin Teddy has his eye procedure on January 6th.  This was taken the following day.  He is a little swollen, even still and his eyelids are red, but he doesn't act like anything is bothering him.  We were concerned about pain, since we all know he doesn't tolerate that very well, but he did just fine.  Hoping that is a one and done procedure and the eyelashes won't grow back.

Pumpkin enjoying a juicy horn worm...

Harrison loves a soft blanket.

Rusty loves the flannel sheets

Pumpkin got a pop-up playpen so she can run around and stay contained.  Cousins George and Teddy tried to comfort her.

Harrison loves water and didn't mind sitting in Pumpkins bath one day to help her out...such a good brother!

Flynn waiting for his Christmas presents...

Rusty loved his new blue feather!

He also enjoyed Flynn's catnip!

Harrison was thrilled with his new helicopter and immediately ran off with it.

Christmas can be hard work...Rusty needed a nap in the heated bed.

Harrison in a fun cube...probably laying there so Teddy can't run through it :)

Flynn enjoying a warmish day on the porch...we aren't having as many warm days, so we all take advantage when we do.

Well, that has you caught up.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mancat Monday

We are still here and doing well.  Quite a few things have happened since our last update...let's get started!
The gutters were installed on the was neat to see how they are made.

Chad got over his cold and has officially become Cousin Teddy!  Auntie is going to keep him because her friend decided he would be too much for her right now.  We are both thrilled and the boys love having him around. 

It is never easy to get the Christmas card photos!  You can't wash it off Flynn

Try to open both of your eyes Harrison!

Cousin Teddy

He had his second FVRCP injection.  This time, he was pre-medicated with Benadryl, and then watched at the vets office for a few hours.  He ended up in pain again, but a pain injection fixed it.  He was fine the rest of the night.  What a turkey!  Thank goodness he is cute :)

I purchased Pumpkin Spike at the reptile show over the weekend.  I have wanted a bearded dragon for a long time, and figured I would not be going to the office for a few more months at least, so now is a good time.  He is eating well.  I am still trying to get his tank decorated and the heating regulated.

Teddy helps Auntie fluff one of the trees.  This is his first Christmas!

Rusty loves the trees too, and was especially excited when a moth flew in and went in the tree.  He talked to it all night!

Finally, we were able to put the furniture on the porch.  There is still a bit of work to be done, but overall it is complete.  The boys love it!

There you have it...hope you are doing well.  Thanks for visiting us!

Mancat Monday

The Mancats have had a nice couple of weeks since our last post.
The furniture for the porch has been arriving...Flynn approves.

Flynn making sure the cat door is going in the right place...

Auntie helping Flynn learn how to use the flap...

Although not 100% complete, it is now safe for the boys to start exploring on the porch!!  Even Chad is getting in on the action.

Cousin George climbs the ladder...he needed help to get down!

We moved a condo out there and it was a big hit.

Rusty has discovered the railing and will now jump up on it to sit.

Harrison isn't as confident, but he has been out there a couple of times.  We prop the flap open so they just have to walk through the wall right now.  On pretty days, we just leave the human door open too so they don't feel trapped outside if they get spooked.

Harrison is content to help change sheets...

Flynn and Rusty enjoying the fresh air

Harrison is getting closer...

Poor Chad ended up with a terrible cold.  All the big boys have been sneezing some, but Chad got the worst of it.  He was completely congested and not wanting to eat or drink.  All he wanted to do was snuggle.  We took him to the vet on Friday and he got some antibiotics and eye drops.  He is feeling much better now and making up for lost time by eating extra!  The man cold is real in all species :)

Well, there you have it.  The porch will get its final inspection this week, then the contractor can finish the electrical work.  Thanks for stopping by!
