Mancat Monday

The mancats have had a pretty normal week...
Harrison is super excited that the heated bed is plugged in again.  He loves to "cook" 

Flynn found a bag of presents on the washer one night.  We put the bag away, but then he squeezed into this box to keep an eye on it.  Do you see his tongue sticking out?

Flynn is a goof ball! 

Close-up of Flynn.  He doesn't seem to have a neck, so he doesn't wear his collar anymore.  This box contained a disinfectant so we can get the house super clean and kill any remaining Panleukopenia virus that may still be lingering.  Apparently it is a very hardy virus.  This will allow us to foster more kittens in the spring if we want, and the house will be safe.

Rusty is growing by the day it seems.  He now weighs 6-1/2 pounds. 

Rusty is helping to wrap some of the boys presents.  Harrison will be super excited about this's a new heated mat.  We can now have two heated beds for him!

Mancat Monday

It was another weekend of torture for the boys...this time they all had to go and see Santa!
Some of you may have seen this on Facebook, but I've wanted to take the whole crew for a while and do a family shot.  It is hard for me to get a photo with all four of the boys at once.  This turned out pretty good!! 
Each boy then went is Harrison.  He kept trying to pull Santa's beard off...guess he wanted to make sure he was the real thing!

Rusty is an old pro now, since this is his second week in a row! 

Oliver was not too happy, but did pretty good.

Flynn turned into a limp noodle and couldn't hold his body up!

The official PetSmart photo...I have Oliver, Auntie has Flynn and Santa has Harry and Rusty.

Mancat Monday

The mancats had a busy week and weekend.  We are enjoying our time together!
Rusty went to see Santa, and was not thrilled with the experience.  Who is this strange man? 
Rusty doesn't like to be held much and will squeal and growl if he has more important things to do.  Thankfully, he was too nervous to be vocal with Santa!
Finally got a pretty good one of him.

Found Rusty and Flynn hanging out...pretty much everyone likes Rusty, except Oliver.  Oliver sends out mixed signals though.  Sometimes he will wash Rusty, and sometimes he will swat him and growl! 

Rusty loves this toothbrush.  I gave him a new one to try and brush some of the acne from his chin.  (This seems to all be cleared up now)  He loves to chew on it more than anything, which is fine because that will help his teeth!

Such a sweet face... 
Rusty helped a lot with cleaning this he is changing the sheets.  It's time to put the flannel ones on the bed!

Helping change the shower curtain and liner.  I needed to put up the Winter one to make the bathroom more festive. 
Harrison also enjoyed lying in the old liner and curtain.  These boys are so silly.

Tired after a hard day of work... 
Oliver found a good spot to rest too.   
Cute photo of Harrison...

We hope you all had a nice weekend too!

Mancat Monday

A random collection of photos this week, but Oliver is here!
Rusty hanging out in the cat ball.

Harrison and Rusty playing on the "S" Scratcher

Flynn and Cousin Georgie checking out the Christmas tree

Rusty and Cousin Georgie saying something isn't right about this tree...they try to pull those branches down for Auntie!

Oliver double checks the box to make sure all the pieces are out...

Rusty admiring the far he is doing good with the trees...keeping his mouth closed, and not chewing anything!

Rusty and Flynn playing in the box...

Later that day, we rewarded all the hard work with some fresh catnip...
l-r Rusty, Pirate, Flynn, Georgie, Harrison, Oliver 

Rusty tried to eat his piece...he still isn't too sure about this catnip stuff...

Eventually, Flynn came over and ate his piece!

Tired baby after a long day of work!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mancat Monday

It will be a Rusty intensive week...he is just too cute!
Rusty loves to sleep on this "mama" blanket.  It is super soft and he will just knead and purr, and sometimes put his face in the blanket and nurse a little.  When he was a lot younger, you could just sit him on this blanket and he was knead himself to sleep...he couldn't stay awake! 
Another favorite sleeping spot...He is over 5 pounds now.

Rusty found Tanner's purple bed this weekend...

Everyone loves a good box...Rusty is the only one that can sit in here... 
He tried to lay down, but got stuck!

Finally escaped!

Harrison has really taken to Rusty.  They wrestle and chase one another.  Loved catching this sweet moment between them...Harrison was washing Rusty's head... 
Rusty watching the birds with Flynn...I have a photo similar to this of Tanner and Oliver...

A little dark, but still Rusty and can see the size difference better here.

Oliver is still doing well...I will have to take a picture of that boy this week!

Mancat Monday

One week, I'll try posting more than once!  Life is crazy right now.
Flynn and Rusty drinking in Auntie's bathroom.  The panthers all go behind the bowls to drink...they can't just sit in front and be normal! 
Rusty often has his tongue sticking out some when he sleeps...

How dare you disturb my nap...

Rusty is getting long...he hit 5 pounds this week.

Flynn and Harrison waiting on their treats...

Rusty sitting with some of the new IKEA pet bedding...

Rusty doesn't mind going up to the panthers are wrestling them...It's good for him to get some energy out.

Oliver is doing well too, just didn't get a photo of him this week!
