Mancat Monday Mommy Update

Kitties!

Sylvester here, reporting on the State Of Mommy's Vacation.

So far, so good!


Of course, our breakfast has been three hours late every morning, but since we have kibbles out all the time we haven't gotten TOO emaciated and fainty from hunger.


One HUGE plus is that Mommy has had lots of extra time to play with us!


Sunday she tidied up the Catio.  She swept and vacuumed and hosed it down and rearranged some of our trees...because we are having VISITORS on Saturday and we want our Catio in tip-top shape.


Tomorrow her and Daddy are going out junking at the thrift stores and supply shopping at Sam's Club, and you know what that means--bags and BOXES!  
More fun and games.


Mommy has had lots of time to practice piano.  She is working on something that is very hard but it gives her a lot of satisfaction to master a little bit more each time.


She's also read a couple of good books--so far (she reads 2-3 books a week)--did you notice the Good Reads widget on our sidebar?  She's working to enter all the books on her Kindle.   
 May Ling is Mommy's loyal Lap Fungus every morning while she reads.


Since the Whizz Wars did some damage, her and Daddy are going to do some repainting, caulking and sealing this week.  The steam cleaner reared it's ugly hissing head, too...ACK!
Sorry we peed so much...


We've been reading all y'alls posts in the evening so we stay caught up on what's happening.  We don't want to miss out on anything important--or fun.


Hey!
  Mommy, swing that toy over here some more!


Happy Monday!

XX  Sylvester  XX

Wow! Your Mommy and Daddy have lots to do! Now kids, after they are done with the repainting and stuff, NO MORE WHIZZ WARS, you hear?
Our Mommy wanted to get Kindle but it said "It isn't available in your country". Arrrghhhh.

Ginger Jasper said...

Sounds like a fun time for all concerned. Extra boxes and bags sounds good too.. Hugs GJ x

Eric and Flynn said...

Sounds like you all are enjoying your mum's vacation. Lots of new boxes sounds like lots of fun to come.

Mariodacat said...

It would be really cool if your mommy could record a song on the piano and play it for us. She's been really busy.

BeadedTail said...

Your mommy has busy vacations but it all sounds like a lot of fun especially for all of you kitties! We're glad you aren't fainty!

Luxington said...

More playtime is pawesome! Almost makes up for the late breakfast! My pawents always sleep in on the weekends... I just sit in their bedroom doorway and give them laser eyes til they get up. Maybe if all of you do that at once your ma will get up and get you your breakfast... unless you want to be nice kitties and let her sleep... hmmm nice kitties vs. nice breakfast... it's a tough one!

Daisy said...

My Mommeh wishes she was on vacation, too!

Layla ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

This is the best kind of vacay for you guys. Extra playtime, piano concertos, spruced up catio, all spells pawsome!

The Island Cats said...

Wow! Sounds like your mommy is having a great vacation and you guys are reaping the benefits...well, 'cept for that late breakfast business.

Tamago said...

Hi Sylvester, sounds like your mom is enjoying her vacation and you are enjoying extra time with her :-)
It must be nice to listen to your mom play piano. I admire those who play musical instruments. (I have no musical skill at all!)

I enjoyed your fun photos. Have a wonderful week!!!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Vacation time at home is the BEST!!! Looks like you're taking advantage fully. : ) Didn't know your mom played the piano! ....Glogirly does too.
Oh, and the photos of you, Sylvester...well they are just FABBY!
xo Katie & Glogirly

meowmeowmans said...

It sounds like you kittehs are having a great tie with your mom being home! :)

Deb said...

Hi Trish - as you know, you won my give-away. I have to apologize for writing your name wrong. I don't know where my head was today. It was one of those days that if asked, I may not have remembered my own name. So sorry but congratulations on winning. So happy it was you. Deb

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

so happy you are having a WONDERFUL and MUCH DESERVED great vacation! Enjoy!

Cory said...

Purrrrrrr....oh Sylvester...Bennette here! Do you mind very much if I teleported over to join you? I could help you play and I could help you adjust to the rearranging of everything in the catio....maybe there are some new places purrfect for a couple of tuxies to curl up and snooze.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi Sylvester, Verreh nice to see you. That was an eggs-sellent report on your Mommeh's vacation. Now, the Human liked the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo okay, but had little use for the follow up. She never read #3, though she might this summer if the spirit moves her, whatever *that* means. I am hoping that your Mommeh's fine example of cleaning the Catio will convince her to wash our windows. Sigh.

My Human is soooooooo jealous of Ms. Stella's mom getting to see the Catio in person.

littlemiao said...

You're having so much fun with that toy! I love your big paw with claws all extended. Magnificent!

I'm on Goodreads too. I'm building a reading list of all the books that I read with my kitten Sprocket. Nothing goes together quite as naturally as cats and books.

Au and Target said...

What a pawsome holiday! Wishing you lots of cardboard boxes, filled with books!

Catherine said...

It sounds like mom is having a good holiday. Good for her! Reading, cleaning and thrifting. Yup, sounds good to me!
xo Catherine
