Mancat Monday--by Stryder

Being a mancat is hard work. Like in this picture I am still on the job.



First I checked out my food situation. It was OK, plenty of cheerios to get me through til my morning stinky goodness. But I decided that my water bowl was not fresh enough. I poured it out onto the carpet so that Meowmy would freshen it up.



Then I went into the dark cave of the closet to make sure there were no evil monsters hiding in there. It seemed to be all clear. I was expecting a Scotchy monster. Only thing evil in there were some dirty socks.



When I came out she still hadn't gotten me my water. What gives lady!?! Just cause your watching Iron Chef America does not mean that I should have to wait til a commercial. Cat Cora would definitely not approve!



After a few more disapproving looks she finally got up and did my bidding. It was just a coincidence that a commercial was on. She knows how things work around this mancat's house.

Socks is the perfect mancat according to our Mommy cause he waits patiently for food and water. We do not like to wait and it is infuriating that Socks doesn't demand to be feed at 7PM like we do. In fact we usually have to wait for the beans to go find him. Perhaps you can have a talk with him and convince him that he shouldn't wait patiently for his food. Good thing he has us or the beans would probably forget to feed him. They need reminding about stuff you know. ~Scylla & Charybdis

Well, I wouldn't presume to tell any mancat how to do their job but it might be a good idea to keep them on their toes. What do you say Socks? Maybe efurry once in a while you could help your sisters out with 7PM feeding?

Hope that helps ladies.

A very good idea to tip over your water when you are in need of a refill!

We got the hoody-sweater a couple of years ago on-line. It was from some sort of pet gear catalog, but we cannot remember the name of it.

Stryder, tipping over your water bowl is an excellent way to get your bean's attention and get fresh water. Mancats gotta do what works.

Yeah, I discovered early on the quickest way to get her up off her duff is to dump the water. She gets so hissed off when I do that. I think its funny. Plus I like to play with it and watch it absorb into the carpet.
