Mancat Monday Trouble & an Award

ML: Happened to glance up and look what I saw....
... hmmmmm, three mancats on the cabinets. But why?
Wait, is there something beside that big basket of fake ivy?
Do you see it? Looks like Faith-Boo! (biggify, if needed)
Hmmm. This may be hoo-haa-ectomy week for the boys.
They have suddenly shown an extraordinary interest in Faith-Boo

Update: Wednesday is the day!
Sol, Smokey & BJ will have hoo-haa-ectomies and
Faith will have a ladiegarden-ectomy!
They will be going to the Houston Cat Hospital
with the wonderful Dr. Kathleen Smith and her amazing staff.
(I'm still going to worry, though!)

Gotted this really nice award from Sanjee who wrote on hers bloggie: Dr Tweety made dis noo award and he sez "it iz to honor doze cats dat has not only a deep intellygence but also egg-zippits a BIG amount of Grace by helpin' otherz." It was furry furry nise of Dr. Tweety to gif this to Mommy. She does try to help out lots. But she 'mmediately said, "But Mommy ML does at least as much werk to help out kitties and the CB as I do!" And dat's troo. So Mommy is gifin this award to Mommy ML and the Sherwood Gang, cuz the Cat Blogosphere bloggy mite not exist at all wifout there helps n grace n telligents!"

Wow, we's really honored to 'cept this (yummy looking fish) award from Sanjee & Mom Robyn, it means so much comin from them. we loves tha Cat Blogosphere so much it doesn't seem like work. As Eeyore said, "...fanks fur noticing me!" (and Mommy ML, too, hee hee)

i's gonna pass this award onto Diva Kitty & DKM. Besides having a great blog that's fun to read, when money is needed, they make squiggles an snuggles to encourage donations. They make squillions of 'em to give to shelters, too. An they spends lots of time organizing Secret Paws, which me an Missy loves. DKM writes tha beautifulest tributes when someone goes to tha Bridge. They definitely "swim wif grace an intelligentz", altho as a cat i's must say that word "swim" makes me a lil bit nervous. Purrs, KC

You totally deserve this award and more for the untiring effort that you put in at the Cat Blogosphere.

Loved the A.A. Milne quote - mom teaches it to her students. She still even reads it.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Congratulations on your award!

ML said...

Thanks, Momo, for noticing.

TopCat, I still read Milne also.

Right now, we've got serious mancat problems around here. The three boys will not stop pestering Faith-Boo. I've got a call into the vet as soon as they open.
Just wonder if it would be better to have all three -- or 4, if you count Faith -- fixed at once, or do them separately, like one per week. Anyway it works is going to be stressful.

The Meezers said...

concatulations on your award! you totally deserve it!!!!
um, guys, careful about the Faith Boo stalking - next thing you know you're at the v-e-t and then things are never the same (but they're still really OK)

Parker said...

Totally deserving you guys!
And I agree, I think it's time for the boys to go and get the snip!

Millie said...

Those pictures are really funny. I wish I had a nice high spot to jump up to like that...

Concatulations on the award. You really deserve it!

Christine and FAZ said...

Be careful Faith-Boo, those boys look like they're all lined up for action. FAZ

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Congratulations on the award! Well deserved!!!

Hmm...I think that Dr. Smith should just set up an assemby line for the boys....snip, snip, snip....all done! (sorry boys!)

Faith-Boo...HIDE!!!!!!!!! Well, hide better than the ivy!

Mickey said...

Congrats on the award!!!!! You really make the Cat Blogosphere :)
I thought the boys just liked that place as a cool snoozy spot, but if they go where Faith Boo goes........
I hope your Vet can offer the best answer as to when all boys should be "done" heehee
Purrs Mickey

Irishcoda said...

Congrats on the award! As for the boys, uh-oh, guys, you're being totally indiscreet! You're gonna get it (or lose it) now!

Nadine said...

Funny pictures. I hope they enjoyed staying up there :-)

Congrats on your award!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Ohoh, all dem boys notissing a gerl kitty makes us nervus too...we laff cuz at da shelter a litter of kittens will be done as a "batch". Yoo guys really deserve dat award! Concatulashons.

Mo said...

Those are great pictures!
And all those ectomies in one day! Wow!

You sure deserve that award, and DKM is a great choice to pass it on to!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Congratulations on the award! And DKM is a great choice too. We thought getting everybody done at once was best because everybody was groggy at the same time and not pestering each other to play. With the first group (GM&C), they just all curled up together and slept. Same thing with Rascal & Riley.

Tybalt said...

Congratulations on your award! You certainly deserve it!

I'm keeping my paws crossed for little Faith and the boys!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Those boys are looking pretty stealthy up there!
Best of luck for the Rite of Passage on Wed!

Snickers said...

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

I’ve heard people say that
Too much of anything is not good for you, baby
But I don’t know about that
As many times as we’ve loved
We’ve shared love and made love
It doesn’t seem to me like it’s enough
There’s just not enough, baby
There’s just not enough
Oh, oh, baby

My darling, I Can’t get enough of your love, babe Girl, I don’t know, I don’t know why I can’t get enough of your love, babe

Sorry, Barry White popped in my head at that photo.

You certainly deserve that award!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Here's what happened with Rascal & Riley: They both went in @ 10AM for their procedures. By 5PM they were both ready to be picked up. Riley was a little more sleepy and "tipsy" than Rascal, though both wanted to get out of the cage and eat a little. Neither one wanted to run or jump, and pretty much curled up and slept. Later, both wanted to lick themselves in the operation spots and, though we tried to keep them from doing it as much as possible, they did it anyway and it didn't hurt anything. Rascal has always been purry and loving, but he's become more so since the snip. He hasn't become any less crazy though, and still plays and flies through the air like he's SuperKitty. Riley has also become more purry and snuggly. Same thing with G,M&C - more cuddly and loving after. The only one whose personality changed much was Cocoa. He became less playful and is scared of everything.

Awww, they all look so cute up there!!!
