Mancat Monday

The mancats are having a good time these days.  We are working to clean/disinfect/sanitize the house from the panleuk outbreak before we can safely bring in new fosters.  We have started with the kitten room, so everything has been moved out while we clean the floors and walls!
The boys love having the condos in the hall...they are more fun when they are in a new location!

Oliver wanted to show that he is still the craziest of them all...he LOVES to lick the furniture polish off when you dust!  Do any of your cats like the taste of lemon Pledge?

Here you can see the spot he left...he was going to town with his licking!

The boys all play together at night...this is a fun game of pokey stick.  Oliver looks like he is just watching, but he will join in.  The boys are doing a good job of taking turns and letting everyone have a chance.

Do your cats play together nicely or do they prefer to play alone?

Mancat Monday - Snow Edition

Here in North Carolina, we don't get a lot of snow, so it is exciting when it happens!  This past Wednesday, they were calling for 1-2 inches, but we ended up with almost 8 when it was all over!  Our State pretty much shut down!  LOL
Rusty was fascinated by this falling white stuff.  It was a really pretty snow with big fluffy flakes.

Do you see his purple and green feather/puff?  He carries it around with him everywhere!  He also has a blue one that is still on the stick that he loves as well.

We decided to let the boys look closer from the front porch...that way, they were under a cover and didn't have to get in the snow unless they wanted to.  Flynn and Georgie were the first ones out...

Oliver and Rusty were curious as well...

Flynn didn't mind getting snow on him...he loved it and went out several times throughout the day.

Rusty was very curious, but not enough to get can see the snow had just started.

As the amounts grew, it would weigh down the squirrel proof feeder and the birds couldn't eat.  Auntie and Rusty went out to knock the snow off the top.  

Rusty is holding on for dear life!

Oliver thinks he would rather watch from you see Georgie outside?  He loves the snow and enjoyed walking around in it for a few minutes.

Simply beautiful!

We still had a couple of hours to go before the snow went all day long and was so pretty and peaceful.  

What about you?  Do you like the snow?  Are you brave enough to go out and get your feet cold and wet?

Mancats on Tuesday

Since yesterday was a holiday in the US, I am a day behind in posting about the mancats.  They are doing well!
Rusty, playing with the catnip bubbles...he is getting so big!  He now weighs 8 pounds.  I don't know how I always end up with the giant cats! 
Auntie keeps her bedroom door closed, because Cousins Sophie and Pirate hang out in there during the day.  They both need to gain some weight, and it is easier to have their food available if they are separated.  Plus Cousin Sophie does not like the boys at all!  The boys know there is food in there, and are ready at night when the door is opened!   
The stampede to get to the food before it is picked up for the night

Rusty loves to play and enjoys the game of pokey stick.  Oliver and Harrison also enjoy this game, and is one we can all play together. 
Proud of Oliver for accepting Rusty more and more... 
Rusty's cute his square nose/mouth/jaw

Rusty helping with the scrapbooking...Auntie was wondering how her papers got bent!  Mystery solved...

Mancat Monday - Rusty Edition

I have been enjoying my two weeks off from work, but now it is time to get back into life and blogging.  Today, the mancat post will focus on Rusty.  There are lots of "firsts" when you are a baby!
Growing in his permanent teeth.  The baby canines haven't fallen out on the top yet.  It took about a week after this photo for them to be gone.  I never found them. 
Helping me do a lot of cleaning and organizing in my room.

Auntie gave Rusty a new feather toy for Christmas and he was so excited!  It is funny how cats are drawn to different toy types. 
This blue feather (more of a puff really) has been all over the house.  It also sheds, so there are blue pieces all over the house too!

Still loving his llama

Getting in the wrapping paper is fun for every cat!

Play hard - sleep hard!

We have had terribly cold weather since the start of the New Year.  It hasn't been above freezing since Dec 31st.  I think today, January 8th, we will finally get to the 40's.  This is a new record for our area.  I was definitely glad to be at home!  Rusty appreciated the warm blankets...

We got snow on day and Rusty and Flynn were fascinated...

We actually turned the gas logs on a couple of nights to warm the den up a little more.  Rusty was very curious about the fire! 
What's staying at home for if not playing on Snapchat?  

Looking a bit like a Porg from the Star Wars movie :)

Well, that's Rusty's last couple of weeks.  We hope everyone had a wonderful and restful holiday season.  We loved all the cards and emails.
