Mancat Monday

Well, so much for me writing more often!  It has been over a month since my last post.

Flynn turned 5 on March 14th.  He is still a big goof and I'm happy he is my panther

Last night after some fresh catnip...he was wild and crazy!

Rusty is a sweet boy and enjoys sleeping on a soft blanket

Pumpkin is growing and enjoys looking out the windows.  She is very flexible :)

I have been finding Harrison in my bed more lately...which is nice because he normally hangs out in Aunties room.

This fella is finally getting his neuter today.  He is still cryptorchid on both sides, so the vet has his work cut out for him today.  Teddy also has a couple of congenital heart defects, but we will have to wait and see how they will effect him.

Harrison loves when Pumpkin is out...he is a good baby sitter.

Rusty helped us rip the carpet out of the kitten room.  We haven't fully decided what to put back down, but we painted the floor with Killz to get rid of any odors caused by the foster babies.  For now, we have a large rug in the room.

Harrison had a birthday in March as well, and he got a new spring house.  Teddy helped put it together and was the first to test it out.

Flynn got some new toys for his birthday.

Another time Harrison was in my room...such a cutie!

Pumpkin had a large welcoming committee when she went on the porch for the first time!

She didn't look so sure at being in this tree!

Loving her dig box and kicking sand everywhere!

Harrison enjoys his morning swim!

Flynn can't find the toy he is looking for...

Rusty loves when toys get moved to a different room...

Pumpkin's first trip outside.  She started off in her playpen in case she freaked out on me.  

Later she moved to her harness.  She got lots of attention from the neighbors.

Harrison's 5th birthday was on March 22nd.

This boy came to live with us in late March.  His owner was moving and could not take him.  He had not been around other cats, but is quickly making friends and learning how to play.  His name is Izzy, and he is officially one of Aunties.  For those keeping count, he makes number 7.

Well, there you have it...another busy but fun few weeks.

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!
