Meezer Mancat goes to McDonald's

A skill every mancat should have is the ability to sleep anywhere! I'm really tired as I had to help Dad. See, Dad often takes me along in the big green machine to go to the drive through at McDonald's. I have an important job, to tell the McDonald's guy if the order is OK. So we went to get Mom and Dad some lunch, Dad ordered a chicken McNugget meal for him, and just an order of McNuggets for Mom. But when we got to the pickup place, the McDonald's guy tried to give Dad two McNugget meals! I sat on Dad's lap, put my paws in the hole where the glass usually is, and tried to tell the McDonald's guy it was wrong, but he didn't understand me! So Dad said "My friend here says he doesn't want the fries and coke, just the chicken". He finally understood, and we got home with Mom and Dad's food OK. I like going to McDonald's with Dad, but I really need a nap when I get home!

Fearless Friday

I can't believe Kavan actually thought I was afraid of Mr. and Mrs. Magnet! And he didn't even know there were already OTHER members of the Magnet family in the house! Here I am eying the twins (I guess Mr. and Mrs. Magnet were busy).

You have to stretch to make yourself look really long to intimidate them....
Spreading out your toes helps too.....
Then reach out and give 'em a good whap...
This will make them huddle together in fear!
Red laser eyes help too! Kavan just sat there and stared at them while Dad did all the work. Me, I really showed them who is boss!

Meezer Mancat with Magic Marbles!

Dad brought home these very strange shiny marbles that are possessed! Tara is scared of them, she saw them on the floor and tried to whap one, and they suddenly jumped up and moved by themselves and stuck together! Now she will only sneak up to them. Me, I'm a mancat! I'm not scared! I'll show those aliens! Its hard to see, but Dad is actually moving those marbles without touching them using the magic wand in his hand...

Then they jumped up through the air to the magic wand! It must be from the same space ship..

Here Dad is moving one of the marbles again with the magic wand. It's a very strange shaped marble, I think it must be shaped like their space ship...

When it jumped up to the magic wand I just had to check it out!

Here Dad has both of the marbles hanging from the magic wand!

Dad said the aliens names are Magnet. They all have the same name, which I thought was strange. Maybe aliens don't use names like we do. So I just call them Mr. and Mrs. Magnet. I think the round one is Mrs. Magnet, and the space shaped one is Mr. Magnet. They seem to be happy here, as they have been napping on our carpet for days. But if I get too close and try to play with them, they always run together and huddle together like this. Maybe they are scared of me. They should be!

The Best Dad in the World!

Kavan: I insisted on doing today's post. Only a mancat can adequately post about a real man! I love my Dad, he is the best Dad ever!

He protected me from Tara when I was a mancat in training......

He taught me how to use the computer (handy for blogging)...

He knows how to really irritate Tara...

He protects me from backyard aliens...

But knows how to play...

And I mean really play!

He is handy with tools (here he is fixing my scratching post)...

And of course he lets us supervise the important stuff!

Furry Fighter Friday

All of us have lost a wonderful, loving friend today. But we celebrate Stormie's victory over lymphoma, which she won for a incredible 18 months! And not just once, but twice!

We will all be going to the bridge some day, and I can only hope I can do it with the grace and dignity that Stormie demonstrated. The Cat Blogosphere, and all of us who were fortunate to have grown to know Stormie over this past year, are all better for having known her.

Thank you Stomie, for sharing your wonderful spirit with all of us.

We love you, and will miss you terribly. But look forward to seeing you at the bridge, where we will all meet some day.

Meezer Colors Day!

Tara: Its Meezer Colors Day! Here I am in my favorite purple tie-dyed tee with the lai Mom brought for Hawaii.

Kavan: And here I am in my blue harness, which matches my eyes!

Tushy Tuesday

Ok, so this isn't the most flattering pose, but it is one of my favorites. I love sitting on the back of Mom's chair and watching the family room. Dad is hiding (he is really lazing on the couch). Mom tells me I have a fat butt...I think it is just shapely....

Dona Nobis Pacem

Thank you Mimi!

Terrifying Tuesday

OMGOSH!!! He did it, he really did it! Kavan and I were up on the balcony, and he was being a little crazy and showing off.

"Watch me Tara, Watch!" as he scrambled up on the banister two stories up.

"Careful Kavan, you are going to fall!" as he showed off by making a 360 turn on the banister.

Mom was below in her recliner reading the Cat Blogosphere. She could hear Kavan talking like he always does when he is showing off. She turned her head towards the couch, which is right below the banister where Kavan was (and where Dad usually sits, but he was out with a friend tonight) to tell him to be careful, when....

there was this terrible crashing sound, and then a 15 pound meezer falling through the air feet first at terminal velocity heading straight for the couch! He landed feet first on the couch, bounced off, landed feet first on the floor right in front of Mom, and looked at her with the expression "What?" like nothing extraordinary just happened!

I came running down to make sure he was OK, and he had the gall to pounce on me like it was normal fun!

Mom laughed so hard for so long I thought she was hurting herself, so I jumped up on the arm of the chair, and with a concerned look, stuck my face into her face. This made her laugh even harder!

I finally left in disgust....
