Manly Monday

Tom: It is so good to be getting back to doing my regular Manly Monday post. I really missed it, and I hope you all missed me!

It has been quite warm here since #1 got back, so she takes care to take me out for vigorous exercise only first thing in the morning and late in the evening. Fortunately, it is still light until 9:30pm so we have plenty of time.

The other day, #1 and I went into the field behind the house. We tend to avoid it this time of year because there are so many pointy things that can get into the space between my toes (and worse!), but we decided to venture in this one time. I love hiding behind the tall grasses, and investigating all the wonderful smells:

And here is an action shot of me, taken yesterday as we had a small ball-throwing session in full view of the cat run, with me being cheered on by the girls!

It's a little blurry but I think it's a great action shot and, for once, you can see the ball in a location other than my mouth!

And by the way, I would like t mention that I consider snuggling with my little sisters to be a hugely manly activity! I am very honoured that they feel safe around me and consider me their protector and friend!


  1. The heat here has affected our exercise too Tommy. It is so good to run through a field though! You look like you are having an excellent time. Stay cool.

    Your friend,

  2. You really have to tell me how you get your cats to snuggle with you. I would love my cats to snuggle with me. ~Fenris

  3. Oh yes!

    Returning to the normal routine is sooooo khalming!


  4. I wish I had my own cheerleaders, especially ones as pretty as TC and Sei-Chan!

  5. Your flying ears always make us happy, Tommy! We can always see how much the girls love and trust you!

  6. WOW! Great Manly Monday Tom! I agree that cuddling is a very Manly activity. A lot of people don't realize that unfortunately.


  7. Most manly indeed. Plus to venture into the wild wooded area with little concern for pointy things that could pierce your toes.


  8. Tommy yoo is a pawfect protector even if yoo is a woofie. Jake still wants to playplayplay and sumtimes he is jus too rough fer us. We dun fink we is goin to get used to dat.

  9. Hey Tommy, good to see you, man on Monday. You are so kind to your sisters - that's the way a true man should behave.

    Happy Monday, the OP Pack

  19. Very manly post, Tommy! I like your action shots. Be careful around those pointy things, ok? They've done some bad business to you in the past.

    Your pal,

  20. Tommy, those action shots of you are terrific! Please be careful not to get grass seeds or other pointy things stuck between your toes or other sensitive places. The picture of you and Sei-Chan snuggling is so cute...looks like she's sticking her little paw in your mouth!
