Mancat Midnight Monday - Weekend Recep, Icky Tummy

Daddy worked soooooooo hard last week. He was up most nights working on our computer until 3am, then went into work at 6am, came home, slept for 3 hours and started all over again. I didn't get any nap time with him and he didn't even get to sleep on the big bed (well, that was OK with me cause I got more room to stretch out since mommy moved to his side). I didn't get my lay on the floor time or my play time. It sucked. Mommy was working too, so I felt awfully neglected.

Then on Saturday, 2 things happened, daddy finished his engine test and took a nap with me on the sofa...and my Swap N Tails Package from the sweet Miz Allie Cat came!! I don't have any playing pictures because my tummy hacked up 2 hairballs Saturday and one Sunday. (don't worry, things are still moving thru the other end OK and I'm enjoying my extra Laxitone).



Sunday, I got lotsa lovin time with both mommy and daddy. I batted my new fuzzy toy on a stick while laying on my back on the couch. It was fun. I can't wait until my tummy is better so I can eat the nummy Whisker Lickens that she sent!

I did chase the cool flashy ball toy under the couch once. Then laid down again. Mommy promises fun pictures as soon as my belly feels better (mommy got some cool stuff too, but you have to visit the Swap N Tails blog later - mommy is uploading there now - to see it!). Swap N Tails is so much fun!!

I watched Matt Maupin's funeral on TV(see my post below) with mommy and daddy. More than 4000 people attended. It was a very moving and very fitting tribute to a brave soldier. It was impossible not to be overwhelmed by the outpouring of emotion, even now. The flyover was incredible. Anyway, thanks again to all the brave Men and Women in Green and their families. We can never repay what you sacrifice for us.

Glad you got a little rest time with the dad. Wow those presents are very cool. My bro hocks up hair balls sometimes...I just throw up kitty grass periodically.

Snuggle time on the weekend is always a good thing! Mommy also supports the military but she is so very glad that Daddy is no longer in the Marines. She does not know how she would handle him being in danger....

Hmm snuggle time is usually a wonderful time..that is, if one is allowed to snuggle on ones own!

Mr Hendrix
You got some great toys and I am glad to hear you are feeling good again.

We saw the report on the national news about Matt. It was truly moving and sad.

We're glad your weekend brightened. It sounded downright depressing there at first - except for having half a bed all to yourself.

I'm glad you got some good stuff out of the weekend! Being neglected by the parents is never fun. Feel better soon, Hendrix!

PS: Bendrix - Ivy ran down into the basement again! This time she pulled it on Grandmama, who was NOT amused.

Poor Hendrix. Poor daddy and mommy too! I'm glad things are calming down and you got some fun quality time with them yesterday.

It's a very sad thing about Staff Sergeant Maupin, but how special that so many gathered to remember him.

meemsnyc said...

Your daddy looks super tired. Sorry to hear he's been working so hard. Hopefully he can get some rest soon. Those are some great toys you got.

Camie's Kitties said...

Wow Mr. Hendrix - It sounds like you have all been busy - between your upset tummy, your daddy and mommy being gone, and your package. We hope things settle down for you this week. What is the flashy ball toy you are talking about??? We haven't heard about one of those before.
