ManCat Monday

Kitties!


Daddy thought we needed a little "environmental enrichment" in his office.


The truth of the matter is that Maui, Felix and Sylvester STAMPEDE in there every morning (the doors are closed at night--the office is Off Limits for Whizz Wars) and spend the rest of the day squabbling over who gets to lie in which box, for how long, when, etc etc etc.


Not to mention the myriad "floaters" who wander in and out for pettings, attention, butt scratching, and any other whim that needs satisfying.  They need places to sit, too.


It drives Daddy crazypants(ier).


So he slid one of the new Cat Trees in here, hoping that it might quell the Three Stooges' antics.


It HAS, but not immediately.


First we had to check everything out...you know how it is when something gets moved.  Inspection is crucial!
Then we had to have all kinds of fun and games--and Daddy moved the tree a couple of times to see what configuration would keep us out of his hair we liked best.

Thanks Daddy!
Now even MORE snoopervising can take place.
And you know you need it...


Happy Monday!

XX  Maui, Felix, Johnny, CC, Sylvester (and one Ladycat, Salem!  Did you see her?) XX

  2. OK, TBT here... Ayla, Iza, an Marley LOVE your house and the kitties.

    But I just want to say that you have the most artistic house I have ever seen! I don't mean that I want to copy it, because copying originality is not quite my style, but I sure could live happily in a house with some of the ideas incorporated in it.

    Cheers and kudos!!!

    The Blazing Glory of Salem and her JLLs is not to be overlooked.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I agree with Pricilla - very spoiled indeed! But snooopervising does need to be done, doesn't it? T.

    ReplyDelete

  20. That's a great tree... Bugsy and Knuckles want HH to get a tree, but there just isn't room over here.

    pawhugs, Max

  21. Cool - that is quite a set-up that you have there. I keep telling M she needs to get me a tree too! They look like so much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You have an awesome dad, we wish he'd head north and do a little environmental enrichment in our house. :-)

    But we can't think why he wouldn't appreciate your whizz wars....

    ReplyDelete
  23. why can't we all just get along?

    ReplyDelete
  24. After your Dad has headed north he can come east and sort out our place We want a few more cat trees and snoopervising places. We have mancat races to get to the best places too, and now the Burmese butterballs are joining in, it's chaos!

    mommer sez to tell yer beans that we lives just a few blocks frum the mother road in springfield!!

  27. Does Daddy ever move himself around in the house while he works? My Dad doesn't like to limit himself to an "office" so he stores stuff in there and then takes over the dining room table for actual meaningful paperwork. Drives Mommy crazypants!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Whizz Wars? We thought those were over? That pawsome cat tree will allow for even more snoopervising. Our human sez we don't have room for one. We are disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  29. oooo - very cool - now you can look down on him all the time!!! MOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. We hope you aren't going to tell your Mommy when your Daddy skives off!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  31. It seems that you should rename Daddy's office as The Katnip Lounge!

    What fun it must be to work (or at try to) surrounded by purry furries!

    Every cat is a King or Queen in your house! (As it should be)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bet daddy didn't know he would be employing so many "associates" when he decided to work from home!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes! It is our duty to snoopervise our peoples! We must ensure they does their job right so we gets new toys and Party Mix and fancey Feast!

  34. Looks like a good place was found for the tree. Always a good idea to keep watch on the door!

  35. We think you Daddy is just inviting even more of you guys into his office with the cat tree in there!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That sure looks like a terrific place for that tree...and y'all seem to agree!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You have to keep an eye on moms and dads all the time, don't you? Otherwise, they'd be moving things all over the place every other minute. It's exhausting!

    Super cool tree!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your dad is just pawsome to accomodate you all. And we like his Beatles poster too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I was really happy to see your comment on my blog today. I miss all of my cat blogging friends and need to make it a point to keep up with everyone.
    We, too, miss Pearl. She was such a little character and the house is definitely quieter without her. Pumpkin and Pickles really seem to like each other, though, and for that I'm grateful.

    I'll see you around! Happy New Year.

  40. MOL MOL MOL wonderful enrichment items....buttt....remind us again just who's office is that?!!

  41. What a cool dad you have!
    Uh, Cosmo wants to know how is it that you've had the tree for weeks and those mice are STILL hanging there?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Uh oh. Daddy why are you BEGGING for trouble?!! You know they are going to mess with your head all the live, long day and you are not going to get one ounce of work done!! Just giving you a cats' heads up :p

    the critters in The Cottage xoxo

  44. So does that mean that the cat tree gets locked up at night now too? That might insite more wizz wars! MOL
    But it looks like a great set up!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Our mommmy wouldn't get any work done if she was in your dad's office since she would be watching all of you!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Isn't that the honest truth. Just move something around and it becomes the most popular place in town. It is fun and sure beats buying new stuff. Just move it. Fun pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That is so cool! We're hoping when Mom Paula finally gets her office cleaned out that she'll get us another tree.

    ReplyDelete
  48. ::sigh:: You have your daddy so well trained. Do you think we could send our mum over? She needs a lot of extra tuition to get to the standard we want.

    ReplyDelete
  49. WOW!!! What a pawsome setup!!!! You get to have a super tree AND access to your Dad all day!! Purrfect setup ;)

  50. On the one hand, you kitties are some pampered puddy cats. On the other hand you Dad is a genius for finding a way to keep you all amused while you're not snoopervising!

    Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow!! You kitties have it made we really like your tree and all that cool stuff at your place...lucky kitties. Yep, we saw Salem. Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  52. I hate being #52 to comment. What can I possibly say that hasn't been said. Love the tree. The kitties don't know how lucky they are to have such cool and caring parents. Good job to both of you.

    I made a fleece box cover, but it's too big. The cats have it off the box every time I go in the room. Fine! They can lay on the towel.

  53. Sorry I haven't visited in a while, and now I see how much I was missing. Love all these photos. (Our Freckles, kind of looks like your orange and white cat).

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, are you the luckiest kitties,or what??!! Your office is amazing and it is so nice of you to share it wiff your Dad!
    Also, you have the cadillac of climbing trees...ours came from Costco!
    Have to go now, need to make sum posters, we will be going on strike tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  55. That's pretty cool! The closest thing I have to that is three sets of stairs. Excellent for twirling, jumping and sprinting. Now if only I could get Glogirly to move them by the windows.

  56. We like how your Daddy is looking out for you guys all the time. Can we borrow him??

    ReplyDelete
  57. poor Daddy!!!!

    When I saw the Route 66 signs I couldn't stop thinking of "get your kicks from Route 66!!"

    I bet there is some good bunny "kicking" that goes on there!

    Love your Beatles photo! (I notice the strangest things don't I?)

    Hope the new configuration works out well for your Daddy!
