Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Jake's Mancat Monday

Hello, everyone! Thanks for stopping by! It's been ages since I last posted. Blame it on my worthless secretary. It's unfortunate that I'm so dependent upon her. She said that she's trying to have a "social life." I might just have to fire her and hire a new secretary--if only I could find one.

I'm dedicating this post to my girlfriend cat DaisyMae Maus who still likes me despite the paucity of my visits and posts. She's very understanding of my clerical predicament. It was a great weekend, and I spent a lot of time patrolling my deck.

Here I am checking out the bird feeders.


And here I am below the feeders seeing if I can catch any slow moving birdies. No such luck this time!

And for Mancat Monday, I show you my outdoor scratching post. I've torn it to shreds. My grandpa made it years ago (for another kitty), and it is very sturdy unlike many of the ones you can buy in the stores. I just wish that Mom would recover it for me because it's not very satisfying to scratch on the bare metal post.
Our dear friends Rosie and Cheeto tagged us for the Seven Weird Things meme. We'll try to complete that this week.
~Jake

Fire the secretary immediately! Demand your rights!

Unemployment is up....your human should be worried. Run an ad on Craigslist for a new one.

Luv,

Yes, we understand about the posting - our mom has "a tooth" and still feels bad about it and is back at work in a new year with a new class. The students come tomorrow.

You do a good job of patrolling your yard, Jake. You have certainly turned that scratching post into kitty art. I hope you can get it recovered soon.

I am glad that you got some secretarial time. It's tough when they rebel isn't it? I see you are handling it in a good mancat fashion!

I think it's good for your mom to have a social life, it's important! As long as it does not interfere with your computer time...

Yes, the help! One can't live without them but they are soooo unreliable!!!
They do some nice things though - like the butler makes us scratching posts and tree platforms and that is nice.
Good to see your pictures!

I really like all the birdie feeders and I especially like the scratchy post your grandpa built! I've been asking for a scratchy post for some time now to no avail!

Jake!
Your Valentine came today with the stamp of gorgeous YOU on the envelope. I spent a few minutes rubbing my face all over the envelope before Mom (using her opposable thumbs) opened it up for me. Oh ... WOW! I was thrilled with the little tuft of your fur inside. I sniffed it an' sniffled it ... but Mom took it away from me right as I tried to eat your fur. She wanted me to "save" the fur so that I could sniff it again later. Thank you for the beautiful Valentine an' the pieces of you ...
Smooches!

I realized this morning that I hadn't visited you a lot..... only to come here and find out it is your secretaries fault!!!!!! She does not allow YOU to visit either, right?
My maid tried to pull that on me - hinting things to the butler like: the cats have a more social life than either one of us - you can't let them get away with it!!!!! We compromised - she promised to visit everybody who visited us at least once, possibly twice a week. Seems to work so far.....
Hope to see you guys again soon!!!!
