Mancat Labor Day Dreams and Videos
It’s Labor Day and I’m having a dream come true! Hello dear cat lovers, it’s another Mondays With Merlin and okay, it raining but so what. My mom, Layla who hates making videos has decided it’s time to make some for posterity. In other words, she thinks I’m going to croak and it’s not enough that she has 88 gazillon photos of me. The first video was taken yesterday in the monsoon and today looks the same. Don’t be deceived by Layla’s cheery mood. I know she’d rather be lolling with me in the garden and certainly not trying to figure out how to make a YouTube channel. I can’t understand how someone so smart and talented has a mental block about YouTube. I mean complete idiots makes cat videos that are seen by millions and how many have seen hers? Six? Even her very cute video of Odin catching raindrops was only seen by 56 people. I mean what is her problem? Never mind, I wanted to share one smart
thing she’s done lately.
Catnaps in the garden! Lying in the sun on something soft, feeling the earth energy beneath and lying near my mom. First there was the beach towel and on the weekend she brought out a comforter and my favorite pillow. Can we say happy camper? But she is a slow learner. She tried to trick me by multi-tasking. I may be blind but does she think I can’t hear the rustle of newspaper? I’d get up in a huff to wander, knowing she had to follow me. After a couple tries she gave up and focused on only ME! MO– — — USES, she works too hard and what better way to rest than to catnap with an expert? Talk about Labor Day. A cat’s work is never done!
I let her make a video of me by the herb garden (below).The catnip is good but the grass is better. It would be even better without her crazy cat lady talk. She also made a video of Odin and Domino with Gris Gris. I hope I haven’t created a monster doing this video thingy. If anyone can help Layla with YouTube tips, please do. She finally figured out how to add the YouTube icon at the top of this page so you can click to see her embarrassing video page and zero, okay 13 subscribers. Seriously, I’m smarter than most cats who have 300,000 subscribers and I’m not talking famous like Grumpy Cat. If you feel like subscribing, I promise the videos will improve.
I hope you have a meowvelous Labor Day. Will you be having any catnaps?
Nothing wrong with them! Just keep at it, you’ll start planning them soon. Glad Merlin’s still a happy guy.
Yo Dude! The Blog liked you this evening! YEAH!!
da tabbies oh trout towne
doodz….knot ta feel bad we due knot think R mom even noes how ta subscibez !!!
Layla, you’re gonna love these videos one day. I think they look fine but no matter the quality you’ll have them to help remember. I only wish I’d taken more but at least I have the ones I did make. I just love Merlin’s Siamese “talk”. I grew up with Siamese and miss them sometimes.

Andrea, thanks. It was a lesson to go beyond perfectionism and just do it :-0
That was some heavy rain! We didn’t have a drought this summer, but we didn’t have many rainy days either. Mostly there were thunderstorms, but no bad ones. We think Merlin enjoyed sitting in your lap!

Thinking of you Mr. Merlin…
The videos are fine. I subscribed and hope she’ll subscribe to mine even though I haven’t uploaded any in a long time. That’s some monsoon.
Loved seeing the videos of Merlin. It was certainly raining! Thankfully we have been having a drier spell.
We have lots of rain here, too, but we got to do lot of napping together 🙂 Your videos are very lovely! It’s fun to see your boys in motion! Happy Labor Day!
We love seeing you snooze. I hope that woman won’t start videoing me or anyone else soon. The still camera is bad enough!
Happy Labor to all of you. Sorry it is so rainy up there. It is nice and hot here. Take care.
My human can’t figure out how to make videos viral either. We have gotten some good hits on a couple, like over a thousand, but not millions of views like some silly cat videos!
You got the Mighty FIne on Merlin and it is always such a joy to see you pal!
OH Merlin we loved seeing you on another Monday with Merlin. You look so good in your video and we are glad Layla is making videos. Our Mom tried to get videos and couldn’t manage it somehow off of the camera. She was too overwhelmed with Abby being sick but she knew time was running out. She wishes she had so much more of Abby. (hugs)
Yup, we’re doin’ the Labour Day thing here, too.
I’m afraid I can’t give your mom any You-Tube hints. Your mom already knows WAY more than my peep. In case you hadn’t heard, my peep is a technologically impaired duffer and believe me, she goes about provin’ the fact, EVERY day. MO– — — USES!
Push the rain back WEST!!!
I love kitties on laps–Rupert paces in the evening until I sit down an then he’s Mister Lap Fungus…

It’s amazing how many cats are napping today! I do am having a nap-in to counteract all this labor!
Merlin, looks very, healthy for an 18 year old cat. His coat is wonderful and he has good flesh on his bones. His head nodding, sniffing scents is indicative of an older cat Let alone one who is blind. Does he have any symptoms other than going more slowly? Are you giving him any glucosamine for his joints? I would say he has at least 3-4 years if not more.
A saying from my son-in-law, “Worry is a debt never paid”. So cross your fingers and nap… And we will be here with hugs…
I subscribed to your channel. I love seeing your kitties. Not sure how to get more people. Just share it on FB and twitter maybe. Really love seeing videos of your kitties. We need ran so bad here. Keeps saying it’s coming but; nothing does. Nice out today. Can have windows open. All the kitties are sleeping as the fresh air made them tired. LOL.

Merlin is so adorable and nothing is better than sleeping with a cat.
