Mancat Monday

We had us some lovely weather this weekend. Evan enjoyed himself some morning sunshine as it shone through our back door. That is, until his mom brought over the camera. That darn thing makes so many shiny lights on the walls, Evan doesn't know what to do with himself.


So many lights!


 They're so sparkly! So pretty!


They're even on the ceiling!

We hope all of our furiends have had lots of sunshine and lights to chase as well. Happy Monday!

We now have a question for all of you. It's like a poll, sort of. 

You see, we're working on a couple of side projects, some of which at least in part relate to this blog and involve some furry fun. We hope to give you more details soon, once we get a bit more into them and have a better idea as to how things are going. But that's beside the point for the moment.

To make a bit more time for our side projects, this human needs to do a very small change-up on this blog. It's nothing huge, but we'd like your input. We easily decided that we do not wish to skip any of our daily posts in order to make more time for our side projects. Instead, we need to make the creation of our daily posts just a bit quicker, to make more space in the schedule for our side projects.

The parts of our daily posts that take the longest are our daily doodles and our daily tips. We do not wish to get rid of both of these, but instead aim to decrease the frequency of just one of them. 

So, the poll is: Which do you enjoy more – our daily doodles, or our daily tips? I think I might know the answer to this. If I'm right, the answer is also the one that I myself enjoy more. So, please do be honest and let us know if you would prefer our doodles or our tips as the one to remain daily.

Many thanks, furiends!

Our Doodle of the Day:


Evan was jealous of Thimble's witchy piece that we entered into the Caturday Art blog hop this weekend. To appease this mancat's magical side, I doodled this up for him.

Our Tip of the Day:
Window dressings are necessary for such things as privacy and keeping out extra heat from the sun. That being said, if you have cats, be sure to take them into consideration when selecting what you'll be placing over your windows. Cats are often tempted to climb curtains, can get tangled up in or break horizontal blinds, and can of course be potentially harmed by ropes or strings used to open curtains and blinds. This is why it is so important to weigh your options when selecting what to use over your windows. You can try vertical blinds that a cat can simply move aside when they want a window view, but of course you still have to ensure that there are no loose parts or pieces that could get caught on any part of your cat and thereby injure them. Vertical blinds are not the only option, though, of course. You simply have to do your research and select window coverings that will most safely suit your kitties.

  4. Evan is so adorable, that second photo is priceless. I can't wait to see what you are working on. I enjoy the doodles and the tips, maybe you could mix it up and do a tip some days and a doodle on others. Very cute doodle and excellent tip. We have mostly roller shades so there are no cords to tangle in, I had a rabbit get tangled in one once, but luckily, I was able to rescue her.

  5. Oh Evan, that second picture is SO CUTE! I love it.

    Gosh, I like the doodles and the tips, but if I had to choose probably the doodles.

  6. we prefer the daily doodles! Just a thought too, MANY of us do NOT post 7 days a week. Many, like myself, post only Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (or the days of their choosing)..........I only add extra days if something warrants it. I am one that thinks posting 7 days a week is overkill........but that's just me! catchatwithcarenandcody

  12. Boy, did we learn the hard way about cats wanting to chew cords! Chuck wrecked a few window blinds until we learned to wrap all cords up. We NEVER got mad at him; we humans knew that we could/should have reacted to his chewing sooner!
