Mancat Monday: Gotta Run


Hello everyone, I hope you had a mighty fine weekend! As you can see, Sister Dolly finally vacated the Ham-Mick long enough for me to pile on it. I just needed to take a breather. I have been running like crazy all through the house. No big deal because crazy is easy for me! Seriously, I have been running from one end of the house to the other end. I go running and take a leap up into one of the cat trees, then I do it again an pounce up in the top of the other cat tree. Then I go rippin’ through the kitchen and out through the dining room. Dad said I’m being a wild thing, but that isn’t quite it. I’ve got a case of “I Miss Spring Fever” and all the whiffs that go along with it. Yep, it is pretty much as simple as that.

Hey, maybe this is a good thing. Christmas is coming and I love, love, love the Christmas Tree. I’ll be ready to snooze under the tree just as soon as it goes up. Hey, let me ask you a question. Is it too early to put our tree up? I am way more than ready!

  1. Brian – I love how you got your ipod next to you – guess you are like me, needing music to run too!

  2. Marg says:

    We have the crazies here too Brian, just rip roaring through our house. It is so nice to have all cool and nice. We kind of think that it is a little bit early for the Christmas Tree. Hope you have a super duper week.

  3. Brian, I’ve been doing the same thing too! Lots of running…though the mom doesn’t want me running much because of my back…but I can’t help myself! The mom says it’s the changing of the seasons that makes us all a little crazy!


  4. Little friend Brian
    Thank you so very much for your sweet comment
    I love to see you, from here where I am, (rainbow bridge) running around your house
    I think that it is a little bit early to put the tree up
    Have a fantastic week, Brian
    Lots of “dog kisses” from your angel friend

  5. I have crazy’s too Brian and its good to let go once in a while. Glad you got the hammick at last matey. Mum says yes its too early for the tree. MOL Hugs GJ xx

  6. Tehehe 🙂
    It sounds like you are as crazy as me Brian *mol*

  7. Pat Hatt says:

    The cat loves to run about and up and down and all around, as he meows his head off too. The christmas tree may rot right now, so put it up and get two.

  8. Cat's Cats says:

    We think you are lucky to have the carpeting in your house Brian, it gives you good traction during the crazy running and the leaping. We have the wooden floors here and we skid big time – LOL!!!

  9. We know what you mean about missing Spring Fever and all the wonderful whiffys. We get like that sometimes too.

  10. Jacqueline says:

    Oh, silly, handsome Brian, we think that Christmas tree should be put up soon even though it might be in trouble of being pounced on too and let’s not forget the ornament toys the humans put on the tree just for our entertainment=isn’t that so much fun?!!!…Thank you for your sweet comments in the last few months while Mom has been gone…Happy week ahead, lovely friends…xoxo…Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

  11. Old Kitty says:

    Oh beautiful Brian!!! Yes!! It’s much to early to put up the christmas tree! LOL!! But that;s just our thing – you do what you want! Yay!!! Take care

  12. FiveSibesMom says:

    Ohhh….that Ham Mick looks mighty comfy…I think our Binx would love one! Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner already? We love it here too! Sweet dreams of all those lights (to pull down), ornaments (to swat at), and wrappings (to play in)!

  13. We have the crazies too. Mom swears once the weather cools down, we go a little nuts. And she thinks it may be a LITTLE early for the tree. 🙂

  14. jet says:

    Hey Brian, Jet her.e.

    Dude, sounds like you should teach feline boot camp! Enjoy your rest, you’ve earned it!

  15. Bossy Betty says:

    Is that music on behind you? What are you listening to? Maybe that is making you a little crazy!

  16. It’s NEVER too early to put up the Christmas tree! Minchie does at least one crazy run through our small condo every day. Mom wishes she had a bigger place for him to work off his crazies.

  17. The crazies can happen at any time of the year!

  18. easy rider says:

    good idea Brian, weh should have the tree for the whole year and every day a gift :o)

  19. Tamago says:

    Hahaha you sound like my Goro. He gets hyper often and run from one end to the other repeatedly. I don’t think it’s too early to put up your tree. Christmas is coming in no time!

  20. What’s christmas? I don’t know that one yet,though I heard mum muttering about it.And what’s a christmas tree?xxSpeedy

  21. Fuzzy Tales says:

    Our human loves it when we get the zoomies. Except if it’s Nicki at 2AM. LOL.

    We haven’t been told when our tree will go up, but the human figures it’ll be the latter part of November, since she takes it down a day or two after Christmas. 🙂

  22. Marilia says:

    We love Christmas too!!!!!!

  23. OMC, this is the first mention of Christmas we’ve heard! We’re not ready!

  24. Do you have a touch of the THoE at your house today Brian. We often have it here and we make Mum laugh.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  25. Aww, our kitty from the streets of Rome, Italy, looks just like you! What a wonderful resting spot.
    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  26. Oh yeah, we unnerstand! We gets the FALL Zoomies too, as soon as the hots break. We loves that we have window whiffies again now that it’s no longer 111 degrees outside!

    ‘Course, we don’ have a cool blue iPawd to zoom too. Might hafta get the mom workin’ on that….

  27. What is it with the running crazies today? Change in the weather, we thinks, which is perfect timing for putting up that big scratchy post…er, we mean, xmas tree. Purrs…

  28. Katie Isabella says:

    I have the zoomies TOO! Mom loves hearing and seeing me. Many times my back is up almost Halloweeny looking as I run. I look all wild eyed too and zoom off again in the opposite direction.

    Brian, tell mom and dad to hold off on the tree a while longer. XOX

  29. Mark's Mews says:

    Fortunately, we get ta go outside an rip-run around. Good thing too, cuz there arent anny long straight areas inside an the wood floors are too slippery ta turn corners fast!

  30. Sparkle says:

    Brian, I have had the crazies too! I think it is the cooler weather.

  31. WHAT!?! Your peeps took your Christmas tree down? That’s so wrong.

  32. fern reed says:

    Hi Brain,
    Just thought i would pop by to tell you we have a new kitty and her name is Circle!!! Come see her if you want she has circles on her!!

  33. CATachresis says:

    What you listening to, Brian? MOL

  34. Mr. Black says:

    Hi Brian–
    When I run up the big old oak tree and then down, then run super-fast on the sidewalk, the lady says I am “full of pee and vinegar.”

    You should put up a tree anytime you feel like it. I think earlier rather than later because you have more time to enjoy it.

  35. YES it’s too early! Let poor Halloween and Thanksgiving have THEIR time in the spotlight first! 🙂

  36. Brian, what song are you listening to? 🙂 purrs xx

  37. Aw, poor Brian, we understand. It’s been too chilly here to open any windows, until today! We’re supposed to have nice weather until thursday, whoo!

  38. Abby says:

    I see you got your music to lull yourself to sleep by.
    That looks like a great set up.
    ✿•*¨`*•. ♥Abby♥Boo♥Ping♥Jinx♥Grace♥✿•*¨`*•.

  39. Hahahahaha!!
    Looking good wild one 😉
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure,JJ and Julie

  40. Father Tom says:

    Hey, is that your iPod, pal?? I thought I had it made!

    Anyway, about Christmas and the tree. I say let’s just have a tree up all the time and call it a Halloween tree for now, turkey tree for Thanksgiving, and then, the Christmas’s that sound?

    Have a good week!

  41. Cattywumpus says:

    Thanks for telling us about Brandi – we just visited her mom.

  42. I think Kitshka has the crazies for the three of us so I can nap 😉

  43. Adan & Lego says:

    Sounds you gonna have great things and plans to do!!
    I love Christmas , too!
    Looking forward to the season coming! And it will be soon.

  44. Brian, a cat’s gotta do what a cat’s gotta do! You’ll get your naps when you need ’em and not before.

  45. According to my Human, it is NEVER too early for a Christmas tree. Her birfday is on Christmas Eve so she gets a little over-excited about it. Other Humans might disagree wif her.

  46. Cathy Keisha says:

    We get a real tree so it’s too early for us. I’ve been doing THoE recently too although I have been getting window whiffies. We had some really cold weather so all the midges are all frozen dead.

  47. Oui Oui says:

    Strike while the irons hot! Its never too early for a Christmas tree.

  48. siku marie says:

    Brian, they say Christmas is a state of mind so if you are feeling it in your heart, the White Dog Army say go for it! Put the tree up!

  49. Patches is with you on running through the house sweet Brian. She piles up on Mumsy’s bed to rest after her frolicking all through the house. She is thinking she needs a ham-Mick. We are happy for you that you finally got a turn on it just in time to rest up for your next run through the house. You all have a great week. Hugs and nose kisses

  50. Ha, ha, probably a bit early if it’s a real tree. I guess it’s ok if it’s a plastic one. 🙂

  51. meowmeowmans says:

    All that running around and jumping sounds like fun, Brian! 🙂

    We say you should put up the Christmas tree. Why not? All the stores have THEIR Christmas stuff on display already, right?
