Manly Monday

Vidock: I trust you noticed that I was the only one missing from yesterday's post? So, what if there was no suitable photo? I think I look snuggly, even on my own!!! Anyway, you will be seeing rather more of me in the next couple of weeks as I have a big show on August 15th and I am in training and will be prettied up for it!

One of the nicest things about the field that Big Tom and I have been in the past few weeks is that there is a stream running through it:

It's lovely both to drink from and also to cool the feet on hot summer days!

I thought I would share with you my wonderful fly-swatting technique. It consists of standing directly behind Big Tom so that every time he swats with his tail, he gets my flies!

Tom: I am continuing to improve, and #1's biggest problem at the moment is to rein me in as I want to run!!! The weather has turned rainy again so I have to wear an elegant plastic bag on my bandage when I go out...

Let's go, #1!!!

Oops... I'm not really supposed to do that...

I'm supposed to SIT quietly with my ball...

Genji: #1 says I look rather handsome in this photo:

I do love my hammock!

Here is a synchronised lounging shot for you. Guess which one is me?

And here is a bonus shot for you. Meet Genji, The Raccoon Kitty!

Bibi: I am #1's sweet boy and I love to sleep in on her bed!

And hang out with my brother, Tommy:

By the way, I am a finalist in the BALANCE BEAM competition in the Cat Olympics 2012! If you're looking for someone to vote for, you can vote for me here:

Urey: Peek-a-Boo everyone!

My schooling is coming along really well. I am an excellent student!

Oh, and our recent visitor, Jane, went to visit my future digs and met my future owner. Isn't that exciting? Here is what the digs look like:

And here is a little manly bonus for you. #1 was out at a lunch yesterday and these guys were there. Meet Socks and Fluffball!


  1. Vidock ! I'm sure you will be the best of the show !
    Great to know you all are good
    Miss you

  2. Vidock you are going to be the hands down winner! I know you will and Tommy, you look as thought you are doig much better! Urey, what a place to LIVE! WOW! Bibi and are looking relaxed and may I say..gorgeous! I like raccoon kitties. Better than what I have on my deck scaring me at night. MOL MOL. xox

  3. Yet another manly Monday oozing manliness from all pictures. Tommy boy, stay still! You'll heal quicker :)
    And may the best cat win on the balance beam ! Äiti has said that she entered Mirsku's photo as a joke as he is clearly not balanced very well and is the antithesis of a gymnast! I am wondering if Mirsku knows this.... Go Bibi!

  4. What lovely pictures and such a happy family!!!

  5. Vidock-we can't wait to see you in competition. We know you will do very well.

    Glad to see that you are doing better Tommy.

    You kitties are very brave to be up in the sky in those little hammocks. Very manly.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  12. Hey guys - nice to see everyone today. You are all a handsome bunch.

  13. So great to see the gang, please pass out bisous all around!

  14. I love Manly Monday - I only just now realized that you boys outnumber the girls!

  15. Vidock, you are very clever with your "fly swatter". Glad to hear Tommy is doing better.


  16. Vidock, very clever fly control technique! And Tommy, we are happy you are coming along well, but do take it easy, no running yet.

    Love that raccoon Genji:)

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  17. Your mum is right you do look handsome in that photo.. I am so glad to see you looking well and happy.. Hugs GJ xx

    Impossible to vote for Bibi - his name is not on the poll list :(

  19. We felt the manliness oozing out of every pixel in this post! We never thought about hooves getting hot--but it makes sense.

  20. You boys are all so cute.
    Hope your leg feels better soon Tommy and you can run and catch your frisbees again :)

  21. So much manliness in one post!! Vidock, we enjoyed your fly swatting technique!

  22. Nice to see you looking happy, dear Tom. All of this had been difficult for you, we're sure. But we know your ears will soon be in flight again.
    Very posh digs if we're not mistaken, Urey. We hope there is someone to give you real love. But we know #1 will always love you and will visit you.
    Love to the all of the Poupounette boys. A breathtaking bunch, for sure.

  23. Oh Wow! So much ecitement and so many things going on! yous guys live very busy lives.

  24. You have so many fings happening in your house. I'm sure no one would get bored there!GO! GO! Vidock. I know you would have a good race.
