ManCat Monday

For Caesar a good mancat.

Boy, I'm glad that its Monday!

I had a really craptacular Sunday. And Its all Millie's mombean's fault!!
See, she posted about how clean her house was, the TV room, the bathroom, the kitchen.... Well, mine mombean saw that and said, "This place could use a little cleaning too!"

So, she started by making a big pot of veggie stew to eat this week. Then, while that was slowly cookin' on the stove, she started cleaning. The bathroom tub, the bean litterbox, the sink, the floor... now it all smells funny. "Mmmmm piney-woods fresh!", she says.
Ick, I says.

Then she started dusting. Its a good thing I don't have any allergies coz she kicked up a right proper dust storm! I can't remember when she did this last, I don't think she can remember either. She looked at the windows and the venetian blinds and said "Hummm .... these need to come down and dumped into the tub for a real cleaning." Good for me, she really hates this job and puts it off as long as she can.

Then, she did my litter box ... more of that piney stink. At least she washed it all out and put in my scent free litter. I mean no real mancat wants ta go where it smells like the parfum counter at Macy's! No, a real mancat wants ta leave his own smell.
Am I right guys?
So then the old litter and all the trash had to be collected, the recycling too, and taken to the trash place. I thought she might be done, but Noooooo!

The rug sucking monster came out!! She was moving chairs and tables, the Futon, runnin' that thing all over and puttin' stuff back. she even dragged it into the bathroom (where I was hiding till she was done) and ran all over the rug in there, and she even did my bed. She even picked up a bunch of my toys and put them away in the closet!! She said I don't play with them all, and she's tired of picking them up so she can run the rug monster. Really! How rude!

Finally, she was done. She put the Stew in a bowl and into the 'fridge.
"I'm sorry Beez, I know how much you hate it when I clean. Would a little nip on your new bed make you feel a little better?"
What can I say, I caved. I sniffed and chewed on the nip she sprinkled on my bed and I even curled up for a snooze. Its the first time I've napped here! (Well, not counting the one time she spotted me here in the middle of the night when she got up to use her litter box.) I was just too worn out by all her cleaning to move. Cleaning is hard work. What a way to spend a Sunday.

I'm glad its Monday and I can have some peace and quiet.

It seems that unfortunately you got accustomed to your pillow!
We all are very very sad about Caesar.

Hi Beezer. Thanks for visiting my blog! We live in the same place. I am on Bernal Hill. Did you see that the coyote lives up the block from me??? I hate the rug sucking monster too. The Food Lady says to tell you that her BFF when she was little was nicknamed Beezer. So we love you just for that!

Many purrs, Halloween

Parker said...

At least you got some 'nip for all of your suffering!

Chen & Ollie said...

Beezer, we hate the cleaning in our house, too. The rug sucking monster is especially evil. Mommy has been threatening to put our toys away too because she thinks they make the house look "trashy". Isn't that silly? Thankfully, Daddy convinced her otherwise...

Mom is trying to organize things here.That means she makes a big mess first! I hope she gives me some nip ;)
We miss Caesar too :(

Willow & I were very sad to hear about Caesar yesterday.

It must have been a Mom thing, what with the cleaning because that's the same thing that happened in my house yesterday!

Purrrrrs, China Cat

Daisy said...

Wow, that's a lotta cleaning! My Mommie really hates the dusting, too. So it does not get done very often.

The Meezers said...

crappity crap crap crap that's a lot of cleaning.

Boots & the Interlopers said...

It must be catching. Our mommy cleaned this morning too while we were hiding on the beds. We didn't get any nip for all the hassle. Got any extra to share?

Victor Tabbycat said...

Gosh, you skipped the step that always takes the longest at our howse: pickin up clutter an papers.
If you sneeze a bunch, she'll feel so bad, she won't nefur dust again. I mean, while it's lying there undisturbed, it don't bother no one, rite?

topcatrules said...

That bed is EXQUISITE! We got our first ever nip yesterday. Trixie ate it and Tigger thought it was silly.

It was FUN!

Eric and Flynn said...

We are very sad about Caesar too.
That's a lot of cleaning your mum did, it sounds like a nightmare. We're glad you got some nip to make up furr it though.

Jan said...

Beezer, That's an awful lot of work for one cat in a single day. Please, take the rest of the week off.

That sounds like a very tiring day for you. But at least you got some nip out of it.


Victor Tabbycat said...

Beezer, mine mom's not too brite, eifur. She keeps callin me "Whatswif the Cat" insteada Victor. I don't know who Whatswif is, but he must look like me.

DEBRA said...


I don't know what got into them this weekend. My Mom did the same thing! WE all hate that sucking monster machine -- wow it's just too loud.

Your buddy

The Crew said...

Oh, you're so right Beez! No guy wants to use a litterbox that smells like perfume. That's for girls!

Wow, I'm very glad your mommy is done cleaning. Jeez. Don't they know Sunday's are for napping with the kitties??

At least she knows how to apologize. Nip and a soft bed. Nice.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Oh my! Your Sunday sounds like it was heck indeed! I hope Monday was better for you. I guess anything would have been better than all the torture you went through on Sunday.

Stephanie said...

Hi Beezer!! Thanks for stopping by our new blog. :-)

Sounds like you had a very busy Sunday! We don't like the rug sucking monster either. Our dad LOVES it and would use it every day if he could. We just cuddle up with mom or hide behind her computer.

We hope you had a relaxing past couple of days.

Beezer, it sounds like your human has learned from you that keeping clean is very important. She sounds considerate too, making sure you have the right litter for a mancat, and catnip to make up for bothering you with the vacuum.
