ManCat Monday: Stay Calm & Wait For Spring

We enjoyed a thaw on the weekend. That is me, Merlin, Domino and Odin. Domino who is part polar bear felt it was downright balmy. I’m a tad more delicate and ventured on the porch for a few fresh whiffies. My superior nose did not detect  any inklings of spring and we’re sinking back into deep freeze this week * sigh*. The good news is I’m feeling better but my elevated WBC levels may require a visit to veterinary dental specialist. And it’s back to the holistic vet for a follow-up visit on Saturday.  That should be a thrill and a half.

Odin, however is an all-weather cat, impervious to something as mundane as temperature. His Spartan hardiness is the equivalent of English school boys taking icy baths to toughen up. Ah, to be young and cast iron strong again.  What’s on your meowvelous mind, dear ones?

  1. We are glad that you had a brief reprieve from the snow and cold weather. We did too but now the snow and cold is back. We did get to see the sun and that made everyone (fur and human) feel better. Our Mom starting singing “Here Comes the Sun.” She said that it amazing how much the sun affects our moods. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

  2. Oh! Merlin! Yous looks like yous is luxuriating in the warmth of the sunshine on your furs as yous inhales the fresh and starting to warm air. Is yous listening to the birdies chirping too?

  4. We were so excited to have a little warm-up this weekend. Only for the reality that it’s still winter to come crashing down on us this morning. MOL!

    Maybe we can *watch* your tea party from the window? 🙂

  5. We had warm temperature during weekend, but it seems to get bit cooler this week.
    Thank you for inviting your garden party! Though, I’m not sure where to sit. LOL.

  6. What a beautiful, strong mancat you are Merlin. I cringe thinking of the dentist myself!
    Odin, there now, isn`t your butt Freezing?????
    Would love to have a tea, garden party with you Merlin in the spring.

  7. I continue to keep Merlin in my purrayers and thoughts. I hope the vets he is seeing can help him on the road to recovery or at least feeling a lot better, It looks like there is lot of snow in your backyard for the three kitties to explore and play in.

  8. Meowvelous idea! Gahden pahty! Meowvelous Merlin seems pretty chippper, elevated WBC or no.

    Our boyz are happy things have melted. They miss that hubs still can’t pick the up and don’t realize that, hey – 17 pounds of cat (each) is a lot.
