ManCat Monday...

Well the day started off with a bit of a bang... The boy (while attempting to be helpful) managed to break one of My Mummy's fancy metal curtain tiebacks in the lounge! :( This just added to My Mummy's already dreadful morning in which Dad had hogged the bathroom, the boy had over slept and My Mummy came down to breakfast late to find a sink full of dishes Dad said he's wash last night... Anyway after My Mummy'd fed us breakfast and managed to get herself a large mug of that tea stuff she so loves in the morning, we all got together and decided we'd better help improve her day! :)

So after My Mummy'd run the boy to school, Dad to work ('cause his work car is in the shop) and gone to a shop that sells those fancy metal curtain tiebacks and found some that would replace the now broken set, we pounced into action! Oh yes, Tigmut'hep and I can cooperate when the well being of My Mummy is at stake... :) We set about snoopervising her removal of the broken tiebacks and replacing them with the new ones! Never before had My Mummy seen us work so well together making sure every aspect of the job was fully snoopervised! Heck, we even decided it was about time Isis learnt about snoopervision... ;) After all we wouldn't want her doing it all wrong!

First of all we ran out into the cat run and snoopervised My Mummy hunting down the drill, screwdriver etc. We called her instructions at the top of our voices, until at last she found the various places where Dad had stashed the tools... Then we all raced into the lounge to make sure My Mummy did the job right! Tigmut'hep took charge of snoopervising the removal of the old tiebacks, Isis decided she better start with something small and snoopervised the screws My Mummy had to remove. She even chased them under the edge of the sofa to stop them escaping while My Mummy broke the new tiebacks out of their packaging! ;) I being the smartest cat by far decided it was my duty to snoopervise the drill and screwdriver, though My Mummy got herself all excited when I sat on them to save them from moving from where she'd put them down! Honestly sometimes My Mummy does get a bit hysterical over the silliest things... ;)

But in the end with lots of cooperative snoopervision from us all My Mummy triumphed and she yet again has curtains that tie back put of the way during the daytime! Purrsonally I'z very proud of our efforts, I'm not sure My Mummy could have coped with such a big job without us... I'm therefore feeling very ManCatly and macho right now! :) I'z proud of my little 'sis too, cause she did a magnificent job of snoopervising, especially considering it was her first attempt! Tigmut'hep did well too and ignored his baser instincts for once and did a great job of snoopervision rather than "bopping" me and Isis on the head - as My Mummy says "Wonders Never Cease!" ;)

Now I think it's time for a well earned nap... :)

What would mommie's do with out us???
It is a shame that the family beans can be so unhelpful, insensitive and destructive. We are just so thrilled that with your teamwork, mommie is back in good shape after so much trauma!

Nap on! and Happy Mancat Monday

Great job, Ramses! :) I'm glad to hear that all of you cats did such a good job of snoopervising, after your mom's morning was off to a rough start. All of you kitties really made a great team! :)

Gemini said...

Oh good job. It is important to help your Momma when she's got a big job to do.

Daisy said...

You done a great job! I do not think your mom would have been able to do it without you. Especially the calling out instructions part!

ps: I just wanted to let you know that I do not think it is wrong for responsible breeders like your family to have kittens. The shelter's official position is "To encourage neutering and spaying of non-purebred cats and pure-bred cats of pet quality." I came from a breeder myself!

Ramses said...

Daisy, it's breeding cats who haven't been screened for genetic faults and diseases (like any good breeder does) that worries us all here. Tigmut'hep is a rescue cat breed by someone who had no idea what they were doing and for that he's paying the life long penalty as he doesn't produce an amino acid or something, in large part leading to his life of Rx foods... Screening would have caught this and his parents would not have been aloud to breed, but put on the inactive register! You see even though he's a bit of a bully, we hate seeing him in pain when he has an upset...

As for My Mummy fixin' stuff, seeing how much snoopervision she needed just to get the tie backs replaced, it's lucky she's not fixin' any cats! ;)

wow, your daddy and the boy were, as our mommy says "in el destructo mode" this morning. and what was wif the derty dishes? our mommy would haf put them in the shower with daddy!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Wow, Ramses! What an excellent job of snoopervision. And how delightful, how you kitties all work in tandem to help your Mommy. We Ballicai do that, too -- in fact, Mom marvels that she was able to get anything done at all before she had us kitties!

Happy Mancat Monday, my friend!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

What a busy day for all of you! The LL had a bad morning too, hence why we're late visiting friends... She got a shot in her arm and that makes her cranky. I'm glad you're showing Isis how to snoopervise, that is a very important thing to teach a kitten!

That is very good of your doing, Ramses~!
Your mommy must very happy to have you guys~!

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Oh dearest, I am so glad that you were so very helpful to your mommy! I am sure she appreciate your sitting down on the drill and screwdriver, even if she doesn't know how to express it. Funny, my mommy got all excited reading about that part too....

I know without our help, mommies would be so lost in their tasks! You are so mancatly. :D

Anyways, thank you for thinking of my mommy and esp of me!! It was so sweet of you to tell me you have a Marie-shaped place in your heart! You're right, mommy has special places for each one of us, only she is hurting over the Missy-shaped place right now. But she is feeling better, she said your snuggles really helped.

Now that you gave her snuggles...let's snuggle together!!

Oh boy I can take all the snuggles My Marie can give me! Our High S P has been playing up and Dad had to get them to fix it at their end so it would work again... I've been one frustrated ManCat over all this... Now back to some good snuggles with My Marie and I'll geel better in no time! :)
