Mancat Monday

Mommy is a bit of a bargain hunter. Sometimes I think she's a little cheap, but occasionally she comes across a great deal...like this time.

She was browsing on Craigslist, and she found the ultimate Mancat throne for only $20.00 CAD!!

This big poofy chair was in excellent condition, but in her enthusiasm, she rushed to the seller's house, scooped up the chair without any consideration about how/if it would fit into her car, and then proceeded to dirty it up while she was trying to drive home with the windows open in a snowstorm with parts of the chair sticking out the window.



She says she was going to have the cushion cleaned anyway, but I know she feels bad, so I'm covering up the slush mark with my paws.



Another problem with this 'deal' is that it is far too large for our tiny apartment.



It will fit nicely in the new apartment we're moving into in May, but in the meantime, I'll make her feel better about the whole thing by spending all of my time in this chair. I mean, of course it was for me, right?



Good job, Mommy!

You could get lost in that throne, it's so big! I hope you're gonna share it with Delilah!

Happy New Year...love the chair! Mom told us that she used to have 2 of them in the livingroom in the other house. Her collie, Raleigh would get on them, move to far to one side and the seat would roll off the base with Raleigh in it! Never scared him from trying it again...Mom thinks he liked rolling in that chair! Sure is plenty of room on yours....move over....Giggle=^Y^=

What a great find!!! Our mom's a big deal finder too. We have one of those chairs, well actually, we only have the frame now. Somekitty peed on the cushion and it had to go.

Samson, we can barely see you in there...you're so far down in all that squoosh...we think your mom was thinking of you when she went in that snowstorm to get that chair!!

Cory said...

Love it! I can see why she ran to get it...it's a purrfect fit for you. Will you let her sit in it with you?

Alasandra said...

We think that is a great chair/catbed, slush marks and all!

Sammy and Andy said...

Naw, your mommy isn't cheap, she's just frugal, which our mamabug really admires....maybe cuz she's "frugal" too?? MOL.

Great looking chair, and it looks like it was just made for you, Samson........Sammy says he'd like to see a pic of Delilah in it though. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Eric and Flynn said...

That looks like the ultimate cat bed. You are all sunk down in the softness. That was very thoughtful of your mum to get it specially for you.

Samson, you will find thet people don't think about transporting items. Many, many years ago when the bean kids were little, Mom and Dad took them to town to get Big Wheels. They came in big boxes. So Mom and Dad and to sticky little's and t huge boxes all in a convertible Volkswagen. That was a real hoot.

One Cats Nip said...

WOW! I'm impressed check that chair out! I could so fit my whole cat streched body into that! I wonder if one could fit in my house....

Meadow said...

Great chair - your mom must love you guys to go out in a snowstorm to get the chair!

Tristan and Crikey said...

Of course it's for you, Samson! That chair is big enough for you AND the two girls:)

Sweet Praline said...

That is a wonderful chair! Can I come over and share?

CCL Wendy said...

Wonderful mancat throne! You couldn't ask for any better. Hey if it's already dirty, then you don't have to worry about any kitty throwing up on it. Cats like a extra smells anyway.

I used one of these pics of the LOLSpot today.

meowmeowmans said...

That's a pawsome chair, Samson. You look so handsome nestled into it with your paws sticking out! Your mommy did a great job finding such a great deal.

OMC! Pimp has a papasan chair just like yours! I've had it for 10 years and have thought about getting rid of it for many years (it doesn't match anything and it's, well, 10 years old!), but Pimp absolutely looooooves it. We're stuck with it for life.

I'm glad you like yours! I knew you would. :)

It's big enough for You and Deli and a grannycat I know. A snuggle patch!
