Mancat Monday: Lessons In Grooming

FRODO: Hey Zulu, you know you’re actually washing the sheet and not me right? I mean we are the same color but still!

ZULU: Oh boy! I am so embarrassed! I’m not fully awake yet!

FRODO: Oh you’re so funny Zulu! No worries! Let me show you how it’s done!

FRODO: Got it?

ZULU: Got it!

Frodo Strings His Friends Along

Sometimes felines are just not on the same page!

FRODO: Why aren’t Zulu and Amarula chasing me and the string? I’ve explained the rules to them. I don’t understand what is so complicated! I pull the string and they chase me. We’d have so much fun! What’s wrong?

ZULU: This does not look like string woven from Egyptian cotton to me! I’m certainly not playing with common household string! What the heck is Frodo thinking?

AMARULA: Who told Frodo that I have a weakness for string? I will not look at the string…I will not look at the string…String drives me crazy and really brings out my playful side but I will not give in and play with that Marmalade Miscreant!

FRODO: Sigh…I must be doing something wrong. Surely they would want to play with me, right? This is all my fault somehow…Is it possible I’m not as lovable as I think I am?

ZULU: I mean, is this stuff even made of cotton!? Gasp…oh my God…is it…could it be…polyester?

AMARULA: Frodo is my enemy…String is my enemy…I will not be tempted to play with the Marmalade Miscreant…

FRODO: Nah! Of course I’m as lovable as I think I am! Alright, I’m gonna grab the string and give it one more go…

ZULU: If I touch the string I wonder if I could figure out its thread count…But if it’s cheap polyester and it touches my delicate skin will that cause permanent damage?

AMARULA: Look away! Look away! I will not give in to the sweet siren call of string…well, maybe just one quick peek…

Frodo “Helps” With The Gardening

FRODO: Oh wow! Mom bought more catnip for the garden. Let me help plant it!

FRODO: Let me just confirm the quality first!

FRODO: Oh yeah! It smells wonderful! This is definitely the good stuff! It’s making my toes curl!

FRODO: So yummy…

Then finally exhaustion sets in after “helping” me garden…

In the Doghouse: Frodo Goes For A Midnight Snack

THE HUMAN: Alright, which one of you cats got into the fridge when I left the door open and knocked the water bottle to the floor?

ZULU: Not me! I’m too busy keeping my nails sharp in case Amarula is in one of her “moods”

AMARULA: Please! I don’t snack! I have to keep my figure looking good for all my male cat fans like Bear and Veikko and so many many more! Though I may have told a certain orange menace that you love when food falls out of the fridge onto the floor cause it makes it easier for you to find it! Mwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

THE HUMAN: Frodo, was it you?

FRODO: No way mom! Not me!

THE HUMAN: Really, cause the evidence seems pretty damning!

FRODO: Maybe if I don’t make eye contact she won’t notice me!

FRODO: Woo Hoo, I’m king of the world! I can practically see the whole house from here!

FRODO: Look at all the food choices! Why do I only get tuna flavored dry or wet food?

FRODO: Oh oh! How do I get down from here?

Frodo Tries To Get His Foot In The Door

 

It’s the human here! I made the mistake of trying to close my office door to actually get some work done. Someone had different ideas…any guess who?

At first Frodo was quite patient

Frodo’s patience did not last long! Now I know how the scratches got at the bottom of the door!

You have to admire his persistence!

Even Zulu tried to get in on the act

Success!

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!

  1. A law I would like to see passed is _all catnip and Temptation tuna treats must be immediately surrendered to the best looking tortie in a 5-mile vicinity!
  2. My favorite card game is _Go fish, of course.
  3. With Summer unofficially here,  I can reclaim my dominion over the great outdoors .
  4. A favourite Summer memory is  when I first met my true love Charlie (who has sadly moved!).

We’re Winners!

FRODO: You may remember that a couple of weeks ago 15andmeowing had a contest to give away a St. Patty’s Day catnip-filled mat as well as some catnip toys and we won! I was so happy! Amarula sometimes calls me a loser so I wasn’t sure I was eligible to enter a contest but it seems like I am in fact a WINNER! Well, I should calm down…Amarula, Zulu and me are ALL winners!

FRODO: We were so excited when the package arrived. It smelled so good!

FRODO: I went a little crazy by the smell of the catnip mat and tried to stick my head right in the envelope!

FRODO: Amarula and I had a bit of a “discussion” over who should get the mat first and I won!

AMARULA: You didn’t win! I gave you a raspberry and left! I decided that the best gift of all was the fact that the mat would keep you distracted and you would leave me alone!

ZULU: I loved the catnip toys the best! I had so much fun throwing them in the air and showing them who was boss!

FRODO: Meanwhile the catnip-filled mat did seem to drive me a little crazy!

MEOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!

FRODO: Finally I laid by the fire with my our new mat

FRODO: The I asked mom to tuck me in…

…it was heaven!

FRODO: At one point I wanted to be closer to the fire but did not want to leave my blankie!!

FRODO: Finally Zulu came ot join me by the fire and we had a nap in the blankie! It was a great day. Thanks 15andmeowing!
