Mancat Monday

So here are my lazy mancats on the bed that they never leave these days.  I can't make the bed because I don't want to disturb them.

snoozing mancats...the coast is clear
I did some shopping for Paw it Forward yesterday so I figured with the boys sleeping it would be perfect time to do a little organizing.

Don't look too closely if you are playing!
After I began laying things out on the dining room table I heard a thump from upstairs and young Master Archie made an appearance.  He looked so pathetic sniffing the empty shopping bag that I had to give him a little something...I had a spare mouse :-)

sad Archie needs something this second to play with
A few moments later another thud from upstairs and Sir Benjamin appears "but mum we don't have any toys to play with" he said with an equally pathetic look on his face.

sadder Ben has such a hard toyless life
After he came downstairs and joined me on the dining room table I had to quickly pack up my work and stash it all in the closet for safe keeping.
Hide the loot
Oh well, I guess there is always tomorrow.  At least I now know what I have still to buy, so something was accomplished after all!
Ben lied
and by the way, just in case you were inclined to believe Ben's nonsense, here is just one of the toy baskets we have around the house!

Looks like a good bag of goodies! Hope your cats don't find your hidy place. Archie look so sad...hope he likes his mouse! Happy Thanksgiving!

Simba said...

I wonder if the kitties could smell catnip or treats etc, and that's what roused them. They have such keen olfactory receptors!

Brian said...

Hey, shopping can wear you out...but Simba might be on to something with the nip aroma!

Oh wow you are so organized (unlike our mom) and we are so impressed! And we are the same way - even with brand new toys if we see mom organizing some we have to try and get more! So her plan of getting us some at the same time never works - we want the toys we can't have!!

Jacqueline said...

Looks like you got some great gifts for your PIF friends; we're sure they will love them, maybe even a little more with your handsome boy's smells on them?!! :)...Happy week, sweet friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Kea said...

The scent of nip would wake US up! :-)

Your mom is very organized. Scarily so. Could she come and organize our mom...please?

ABBY said...

"A hard toyless life"!

The Look on Young Master Archie's face...I'd be off to the store for hundreds of mousies right away!

pee ess: bed-making is highly over-rated.

Eric and Flynn said...

Looks like three exciting packages waiting for three lucky kitties.
We are spending most of the day on the bed now as well.

Miss Kitty said...

Greetings Catrina, Archie and Ben,

Wow! Your mum is very organized and very, very generous. As hard as it seems, we can understand she had to quickly pack up all the goodies and secure them from you inspecting nose and paws. However I am sure in turn, mum will go shopping later for a few goodies for you al, for we know she's a very good human.

Wishing you a wonderful start to the week,
Miss Kitty and Egmont

We wanna come over and snuggle on the bed with you guys!!

And we tried not to look but... OMC!! Look at all the Paw It Forward stuff!! Whoohooo!!!

Angus Mhor said...

Hey, Casper! A bunch of us are comin' over to-night to help with the heist! When you see us teleport over, don't get all hissy or anything..we're just there to help youse guys get those toys!

The Creek Cats said...

Our bed never gets made cause mom doesn't want to disturb Ms. Maggie May.

Wow, those are some great goodie bags!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I laughed when I read your post...how true!! Beds can't be made up too much because we don't want to disturb the kitties! Those faces are precious...where's my toy....I've never had a toy before....love it!!! I bet the scent of the nip got their attention or like most kitties and dogs, they knew what you were up too and had to get some attention...and toys!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Cara n Crew said...

Mol! Ben, didn't all of you just get a pawsome package of toys? :)

-Pip, Smidgen, Minnie

Sparkle said...

Okay, I admit I was tempted to feel sorry for Ben and harangue you for depriving him... after seeing ONE of the toy baskets, not so much!

Sweet Praline said...

Mom says I have a lot of toys too. I say a kitty can never have too many toys.

Natalie said...

I love that picture of Ben - he did such a good job of looking forlorn and toy-less!

Admiral Hestorb said...

My Mommy never makes the bed when I'm in it. Ever. She loves the extra kisses she can give me. Your boys look absolutely soft and luscious and kissable and snuggable. MUAH!

Fin said...

It's hardly anything!

Au and Target said...

Hehe, new toys are always better! Esp if they're for someone else.

Cory said...

Our mom NEVER makes the bed...it's not allowed. Us kitties need to burrow.

Too bad you kitties don't have any toys!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

WOAH!! That is some excellent loot my friends!!

Forever Foster said...

You guys are so cute. You can't let your mum do things without your supervision, who knows what could go wrong?!?!?!?! ;)

The Monkeys said...

We understand how you feel, Ben! You can just hear the crinkle ball and catnip going to other kitties, can't you?

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Us cats can never have too many toys! MOL!
