Manly Monday!

Tom: Woofs, Everyone. Tommy here! I have been so touched by the outpouring of kind words on this blog and also on FaceBook. You are such great buddies, one and all. The cone stinks. No doubt about it. And in principle, it's supposed to stay on until my stitches come out on Monday, September 30th. However, #1 takes it off when I have my meals and then it stays off as I have a romp outside.

Come on, #1! Throw something for me to catch!

Happy Boy!

Thanks, #1!

Also since yesterday evening, #1 has been leaving it off for longer periods as long as I am always within her line of sight, and being a good boy. I was a really good boy all evening and only got the cone back on at bedtime. WooHoo!

Vidock: Even though she is still quite gimpy (not much progress the last few days, sigh...) #1 decided I needed a good brushing yesterday:

She said I was beginning to get dreadlocks, so my mane took a long time!

Genji: I was so happy when #1 took the cone off Tommy because it meant we could play bitey-face!!!

In other news, #1 has been taking more ultra-close-ups of me...

I also kept her company the other evening as she watched "The Wonder of Dogs" although I am not sure why it wasn't about cats.

Da Beebs: I happen to think it's very manly to nap!

And even manlier to nap in your #1's bed!

Wishing you all a great week!


  1. Oh so nice to see such wonderful Manliness :)
    Mom is trying to brush Treasure as he is developing dreadlocks too. He does not want Mom to take them out,heehee
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger, JJ and Julie

  2. Such manliness! We're glad to see that Tommy gets supervised breaks from the cone. It must feel good to have the cone removed after wearing it all day.

  3. LOVE the manliness here. Always have. Snuggles and lovins to you.

  4. We bet that cone makes you all itchy where it rests on your neck Tom. We're glad #1 is letting you cheat a little bit and taking it off when she can watch you.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Beebs, frankly, I'm with YOU, buddy!


  6. that is a lot of manliness. glad you are getting some coneless time Tommy.

  7. I love your big smile, Tommy! It's great you can have your cone off longer. Gen-Chan, you looks super handsome in your ultra-closeup photo!
    Happy Monday xoxo

  8. Tommy, you look so overjoyed to have that cone off - and I don't blame you! It must be a bummer to have to put it on. Well, only a few more days, right?

  9. Oh Tommy, we were so sorry to hear about your injury again. You be careful okay? And hello Beebs! You are looking good. As are you Vidock. I cannot believe I appear to have missed Snuggles on Sunday. Whatever shall I do with my worthless human?

  10. Conelessness is good, Tommy, as ong as you are good! As always, hoping you heal up perfectly this time!

    Smoochies to all!

  11. Ca me fait sourire lorsque je vois Genji mordre Tommy à la gorge.
    Le copain chat Tikou n'était pas venu depuis plusieurs jours. La première chose que Hisia a faite en le voyant c'est de se précipiter ... pour lui mordre le cou.

    Tommy profites bien de tes moments sans cône. Tu vas voir, ça va vite passer. Courage.

  12. You show a big smile with the cone off, Tommy ! Continue to be a good boy ! Manly purrs to everyone, furry pals !

  13. You boys have all been busy. We are glad that you get out of the dreaded cone for meals and play Tommy.
    Take care of your self.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  14. Hang in there Tommy. No cone is good

  15. Tommy! I was so hoping you were getting some breaks from wearing that cone! Good for #1 for busting you out and even though it means keeping a close eye on you! I am so glad you are being a good boy!
    And Vidock! Dread locks! Wow! Hey, your tail is certainly long and beautiful! I am glad you could get your brushing but sorry to hear there isn't much progress for #1's knee... keep healing!
