Cats,  Man Cat Mondays,  Mondays With Merlin

Mancat Monday Flashback Wayback Machine

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

It’s Mancat Monday but some of us are not really here. Our editor/mom/slave Layla is winging her way back Nashville and an amazing Blogpaws conference. She had the nerve to stay an extra day! Of course it was inconvenient, and downright horrid for her to leave me but my cat dad took good care and even put her on the phone for a chat. Sorry, but that’s not enough. I want my mommy!

She thought it might be fun to look at what we were doing on this day, June 1, 2012. Garden lounging and strolls are still popular but alas, our dear bro, Gris Gris is no longer with us. And holy Bast, how was Merlin ever so rotund? We’ll have a proper update next week and if you’ve never checked out the Wayback Machine at Archive.org, you’re in for a mind-blowing treat. It’s a free Internet archive of snapshots of websites including ones no longer around. For something really mindblowing we have other news.

P.S. It’s also Odin’s 5th birthday today but celebrations will have to wait. A new mancat is arriving on Wednesday. Yes, Radish is coming home, here. He has multiple health issues but there is hope for a new life. More about the big news later in the week. Life is never-ending change and when you get to be old like me, nothing should come as a surprise.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ODIN MY MAN! I know it’s tough on you guys and Nou Nou when your Mom isn’t there……Dad does great BUT he’s not Mom!!!! The other news – that Radish is coming to live with you – makes my heart so full and made my Mom get teary-eyed. Radish is one lucky guy……there’s so much love in your house there’s plenty for him to enjoy and he already knows Mom Layla……this is so wonderful…………….you’ve made our day!

    Hugs and Love, Sammy (and Mom Pam)

    PS Merlin, mes was heavier then too!

  • Kathryn

    Wow! Radish! So so so so so so so so so so so so so happy!

    Amazing that Merlin has lost all that weight, but Emma did, too. Ched is so happy about Radish, too. He’s right here on my desk.

    Mao will be happy when I tell him when he wakes up.

    It’s 54 in Belmont and 53 in NYC right now. I actually turned on the heat. Have been avoiding doing that, but it’s too darn cold in the house.

    Those Wayback machine photos are fantastic.

    Love that site.

    Hard to believe that Odin is 5!

    Hope you can get a flight today. Dig out your sweaters! Hope you don’t get a cold transferring from southern heat to the northeast arctic!

    It will be a bestseller book when you write one about Radish’s transformation! I’m pretty sure you already thought of that!

  • Layla

    Thanks everyone. I lost my cell and laptop on enroute from Nashville, My connecting flight in DC was canceled and I’m at an airport hotel hoping to get home today. Digital devices are being Fedexed home so I’ll be unplugged for a while.

  • easy rider

    I will look if I find some old things about me with using that time machine :o) Happy Birthday Odin, maybe you can celebrate twice for your Odin-day in may too?

  • Summer

    My human really enjoyed being on the panel with your human! I’m so sorry I missed meeting her – maybe next year because I am for sure coming and staying longer. I am looking forward to hearing more about Radish.

    I am glad to hear that Radish is coming home with you. I also checked out the Wayback Machine weblink you gave, and it was interesting to see my old blog posts in their old blog costumes, which have changed over time.

  • jansfunnyfarm

    We’re so glad Radish will be coming home to you. We so hope he will have a great life, despite any health issues.

    Glad your mom is coming back home. I hope she had a great time at the conference.
