Mancat Monday

Yay! Mom said I could have my blog all to myself on Mancat Mondays.

Karen Jo:  We will have to find a day for Emma.

She can have Wednesdays.  Here I am chilling out on my ham-mick, which is one place that Emma hasn't tried to take over yet.

Karen Jo:  She hasn't been up on top of your platform yet, either.

It's probably just a matter of time.  I want everyone to know that I am feeling great.  Emma and I are starting to play together.  I chase her all over.  One fun game is that she runs around the living room on the furniture and I chase after her on the floor.  When she runs out of furniture we have a little boxing match, then she turns around and runs the other way.  I have gotten into pounce position watching her a few times, but I haven't pounced her yet.  As for her being faster than I am, hah!  I showed her tonight that I can catch her whenever I want.  I didn't even touch her.  I just caught up with her and showed her how fast I can be.

Karen Jo:  You showed her who gets first dibs on the Medley, too.

That's right.  I have started guarding my Medley dish.  At lunch time Mom put down my Medley right in front of me and I started eating it.  Emma watched.  Then Mom put down some really good Stinky Goodness.  I leaned over and started eating that, without moving from in front of my Medley dish.  Emma just sat there and cried.

Karen Jo:  I gave her a dish of Stinky Goodness in her room, as usual.  It took her a little longer than I expected to catch on to what I was doing.  She didn't realize that food was being served in her room until she heard me filling up her Kitten Chow.

Tonight I was nicer.  I just ate my Medley and let Emma eat the Stinky Goodness.  Mom has showed me that I can eat Emma's Stinky Goodness, if she eats all of mine and I want hers.  Mom says that the ravens are mad at us.  Mom gives them any left over Stinky Goodness.  There isn't much left over any more, just a few crumbs sometimes.  Mom hardly ever gives me treats any more.  She doesn't give me my cheese snack any more, either. I haven't been bugging her about it.  Chasing Emma is lots more fun than asking for treats.

Karen Jo:  I am hoping that between not getting many treats and getting lots more exercise, you will lose the weight you need to without my actually having to put you on a diet.

Angel Simba said...

That sounds like a really fun chase game.

The Monkeys said...

It's wonderful news that you're enjoying Emma and she's having fun with you! With so much to do, who needs treats?

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Dieting is no fun so we hopes chasing Emma works.

It sounds like Emma is fitting and acting much the way Marley has the past 2 moons here. He was (and is) greedy fer our food bowls. I eat fast so Im done fast, but sometimes I demand it in another room. Iza has been having trubble though. She is a slow eater and Marley slowly pushes his nose inta her bowl.

Marley and I have learned ta play chase together, but it is ME up on the furniture an Marley is on the floor. We BOTH pounce each other. Marley an Iza take turns at chase on the floor, but they dont pounce each other.



Oh Herman
It sounds like you and Emma have reached an understanding.
We are so happy that things have worked out so well.

We bet you will lose some weight, Herman, with all that running and chasing Emma you're doing!!

Angel, Kirby and Max said...

Good luck on the diet theory. We added a cat and increased the amount of fool slightly and all three gained weight!

RoySr said...

Ah, now the plan comes out. Diet and exercise to make the old Man Cat healthy, hearty, and a hellion again. Good work ladies. Good work.

Just sayin .....
