Mancat Monday


This is my breadbasket, I've had it for more than a year and it usually sits on the dining room table.  When we have people over for dinner, I line it with a linen napkin and serve our bread in it.  You may be wondering why it is lying on it's side.

Lately it has had another use which started with little Jimmy...CAT BASKET!

Sheesh mum, who are you calling "little"?  Check out my great, long legs!

This is so comfy...anyone else like to give it a try?

Hmmmm, it's a bit tight, but I think I can manage.

Zzzzzzzzz

Now thats what I call a multi-tasking basket!! And you have to admit it looks so much better filled with kitty than it ever would filled with bread.

That is exactly what Teddy would do. Like he did with mum's fruit basket.

Oh, Cat! I'm laughing so hard!!!
How could they resist? It's shaped perfectly for a cat body!
Cats make such great centerpieces! Beautiful, decorative, calming. Every home should have one...or several!

We think we need a bread/kitty basket here too! Who would want bread when they can stare at one of you!

Did Jimmy start sleeping in the "cat" basket?
I just wondered who got the idea from whom?

That makes a super cat basket. What a great shape for you kitties. We like that. Were you sure to leave plenty of hair in the bread basket?? Great pictures.
Take care.

Jimmy, you sure are growing up big and strong! It was nice to see Casper in the basket, too, just to give perspective. Lovely shots!

Jimmy & Prince Casper, you both look very handsome in the cat bed. Imagine your Mom using it for bread. ~AFSS

Prince Casper, I am so happy you will be at the Mardi Gras Party and I can spend time with you. ~Artemisia

Bread basket? Clearly, that was never meant to be a bread basket. That is totally and entirely a CAT basket.

And might I say how absolutely handsome Mr. Jimmy is. Wow, what a beauty!! But this story just wouldn't have been as wonderful without Casper filling that bread basket in the end.

Natalie said...

Oh my gosh, you kitties are so cute in the basket!

Cloon said...

What precious photos! Looks like Jimmy is a character!...(Why am I not surprised? wink, wink...)

Cory said...

Now you definitely need a 2nd basket! Ha! Baskets were made for us kitties.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Oh please let the cat's have it? Please please please?
♥♥♥

CCL Wendy said...

That is so hilarious! Cats love baskets, and this one is long and narrow, so shaped just to fit a regular-sized kitty.

Jimmy and Casper make a wonderful centerpiece to your dining table, too! Which one will you use at your next dinner party, do you think?

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

OMC! It is the PURRfect size for a cat! It would have been wasted as a bread basket! MOL!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

A perfect place to 'Loaf' and what's a few cat hairs anyway!

Maggie said...
