Mancat Monday: Make Hay While the Sun Shines
Good day dear ones; it’s your feline host Merlin. Carpe diem is Latin for “seize the day” or a fancy way of saying make hay while the sun shines. Yeah, life is short and we all have the same 24 hours every day, no matter what. While the seconds are ticking, I’m aware that life is a dream, a blink in the bigger scheme of things. With that in mind, I’m not sweating the small stuff, not that cats really sweat anyway like you humans (literally and figuratively). We never need deodorant and only sweat through our paw pads. May your week unfold in wondrous ways.Love, Merlin

Sweet dreams, Merlin!
So wise as always Merlin. I wish you a wonderful sunny week as well.
Could you please print how to correctly pronounce Carpe Diem, so this flawed human will not embarras herself.
To sleep, perchance to dream! We love your philosophy, Merlin.
We were having all kinds of Blogger/ Google issues too last week. Photos not uploading, unable to comment, talk about wanting to seize something!

Carpe diem is my favorite word! We gotta enjoy every second!
I learned kitty sweats through paw pads from Niko. When he went to vet for annual check up, he left lots of sweat paw prints on the table. I’m sure he was very nervous!
I’m going to seize something Merlin, that’s for sure. Thanks for the tip! 🙂 xx
Mommy is gonna take a page out of your book today, Merlin…it’s been a “Monday” for her.
Merlin you are always filled with such wisdom!

Smart philosophy Merlin. My carpe diem is to eat the cats’ food from their bowls and the boys yogurt out of his hand. Oh wait. I just did them both!
You are a wise man(cat) ineed. I will seize every day. I hope your will have a wonderful week too

Wise words, Merlin. We’re gonna go seize the day by seizing one of our catnip toys!
Sometimes, Cats Herd You
Taking life one day at a time is much easier for cats than peeps. That’s an important lesson that cats can teach. Stop and smell the catnip!
We cats are really good about dreaming life – all that napping is practice!
