Manly Monday Mud...

Tom: Happy New Week, everyone! I seem to remember The Beebs expressing some dissatisfaction with our weather a week ago. Well, it has not improved. At all. In the past week, we have had half a day of half sunshine and that's it. The poor Vs are in fields that just seem to get muddier and muddier and nobody can do anything about it. The fields I run in are sponges from all the rain that has fallen. There has been talk, on and off, of maybe some snow this week but nothing seems certain other than it's going to get colder. Anyway, you know me, nothing much stops me!

Not even mud!

That photo was taken over at the Vs'. Fortunately, the fields around the house are not quite as bad.

Genji: I think it is very important to be able to entertain yourself and be versatile in your choice of toys:

Sitting at the window, watching Bird TV, is fun:

With my Paw of Doom at the ready!

Bibi-Chan: Because of her sciatica, #1 has been taking hot baths, and I have been supervising to make sure she does not drown!

I like to meditate at the window...

It's tiring work:

Vidock: Hmmmmm... photos..... let me think.... I don't think I have any new photos as I used them all on Friday. This one is from the same shoot as Friday:

And this one is from before, with a great view of the mud:

You can tell it's earlier as I'm wearing my other headcollar. By the way, did I mention that #1 has been doing all kinds of shopping for me? She now has everything she needs to ride me, including a nice handmade Amish bridle. She also took off the western stirrups on the stock saddle and replaced them with regular stirrups after her Australian friends said that that is how they all ride stock saddles over there. She finally found big enough saddle pads too. So now she just needs to get on my back!

Tommy, that certainly looks muddy over there! Hope the sun breaks through soon and sorry to hear that #1 is still suffering! We hope this week sees a little improvement!

She must be really looking forward to getting to ride Vidock!

take care and best wishes to #1
Clive & Murray

Katie Isabella said...

I think #1 has ridden you before, Vidock?

Barb and TheDailyGs said...

Love that Claw of Doom! Hope your weather and #1's sciatica improves greatly this week!

We've had super warm weather and all our snow melted so now our backyard is a mucky mess. Not quite as bad as the V's pastures, but getting close. I hope we get more snow soon.

Tommy, if the mud doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother us! You look very manly with a little mud on you. We are looking very forward to seeing the day #1 gets to ride Vidock! How exciting! Have a great week, furriends.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Tommy you certainly do have lots of mud - we hope you washed you paws when you got home! You field is very wet and muddy Vidock but mud is very good for the complexion we believe. Bibi don't fall in the bath!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Oh Vidock - that is very exciting!!

Tommy - the cold may not be nice, but at least the mud might freeze. :)

Mariodacat said...

Wow - M wants to know if she can have a horsie ride too., She loves horses in addition to cats and dogs.

Sparkle said...

I am glad to see everyone is keeping themselves busy, in spite of the awful weather!

Marg said...

That is too bad about all the rain and the mud. Hope that sun comes to visit really soon. All you kitties sure look happy with all of your jobs. Take care.

Derby, Ducky said...

MUD!! Go have a nice roll in the mud Vidock. We look forward to seeing your mum take a ride on your back.

We love watching at our windows for bird TV too.

Tillie and Georgia said...

Tommy, we just love those flying ears in the action shots!
Genji, those are neat paws of doom,heehee
Vidock, we look forward to seeing you giving #1 a "piggy back" heeheehee
Or...a horse back ride.

We have never seen so much mud in our lives but it looks like a lot of fun to lie and run in.

The Cat From Hell said...

Look at all that mud! me thinks me would rather sit watching #1 in the tub! And Mes can't wait to see #1 on Vidock!

Oui Oui said...

Ugh! That mud looks awful! Its been on the dry side here for the last couple years. Too bad the rain doesn't even out. We are crossing our fingers so the rain lets up & you can dry out.

Mowzers, what exhausting jobs you all have! We agree -variety in toys is a must!
