Mancat Monday

On a bright and shiny day, one of Evan's favorite places to be is in the sun puddle that shines through the front door.

Evan will park himself in that ray of light for as long as he possibly can. Sometimes I have to tell him that he needs to take a break from that lovely sunshine. After all, I don't want my ginger boy to burn!

Can you guess what happens when I tell Evan he needs to take a break from sunbathing?

He argues. Are you surprised? Yeah, me neither.

Wishing you all a sunny Monday!

Doodle of the Day

Anybody up for another spooky read? Yes? No? Maybe so?

Did you know?
Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe had a beloved cat named Catterina? We're thinking some of you do know this, especially since a certain famous tortie named Mudpie has mentioned Catterina before on her and her human's blog, Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries, & Meows. Some have said that Poe's Catterina was a black cat, but it is now commonly believed she was a tortoiseshell cat. Either way, Catterina is believed to have played a significant role in the lives of both Poe and his wife, Virginia. It is said that Catterina often kept Poe company when he wrote, and that she kept Virginia company during her battle with tuberculosis.

A great sunpuddle moment! But, yeah, I would argue, too!
Many a cat has been an inspiration to humans..ahem...- Tom x :)

Humans think we're gonna burn up sitting in the sun too long. Silly humans!

Cats do love sitting in the sun. You would think he would get too hot sitting in the sun like that. You all have a super day.

It's like hoomins and felines live in separate worlds; cats will ALWAYS do what they want to!

Evan, i hope you listen to your mom, she has your best interests at heart and usually does know best.

Poe was a fascinating character himself.

We adore the story of Catterina!!! Today's artwork is simply purrfect. Evan, you and Mudpie could be twins with your love for sunny doors!

Tell him:

There once was an Evan the Cat
Who discovered one day sadly that,
Sunpuddles (we're trustable)
Can make cats combustable
If they stay when the Bein says "scat"!
