Mancat Monday

The wonderfully talented Ann from Zoolatry made this amazing Christmas ornament of Mommy's former Mancat, Muddy.



Muddy died in 2006, shortly before Delilah and I arrived here. I'm kinda glad he isn't here anymore to compete for top Mancat in this house, because I saw some pictures of him, and he was BIG!

This was my reaction when Mommy showed me his photo...



Even if I ate extra treats, every day for the rest of my life, I could never get as big as The Mudman!



There's no way Mommy's gonna get away with calling me chubby again after I saw that!

Hey Mom...how about some more treats? I'm skin and bones over here.

That is a wonderful tribute to Muddy that Zoolatry made. He really was a big guy! We know you are glad to be number 1 Samson, but we do wish we could have met him if even for a little while. But we are glad to know you at least (and Delilah too of course)!

This is so nice, I'm sure your Mommy was pleased to get this wonderful ornament. I have to say I love your expression, I think, you look speechless, choke!

How old was MudMan?

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Oh wow--Muddy was 'big boned'--just like my Uncle MaxMaxx--maybe more big--I think I woulda stayed out of HIS way!

Mudman had such a tiny head...uh...um....well...

Ok, he was huge! I think I'd like him. Maybe he's hanging out at the bridge with my Jonathan.
