Fashion Friday

O.k. I'm going. To the CCSI premiere, that is. After having to endure Karl these last few days the least he can do is take me! What do you think of this gown? I hope the show airs soon - I do not know how much longer Emil and I can deal with "Mr. Writer Karl'...

What a wonderful day yesterday was. After I woke up from my hang over that is. It was my sweet Ruis birthday. And all 22 parts for the second CCSI episode were filled. And the butler gave me chicken and beef. And the mailman brought us MAIL!!!! There was a big envelope all the way from TAIWAN from our dear friend Adan!!!

He and his human Michico are just the best! We got the wonderful postcard of cute Adan and the most beautiful piece of artwork: "...made for Anastasia and Karl. Michico just finished few days ago, the postcard of my hasn't send to her yet. Because Karl said we could take our time. The reason we are late because michico is making this. We both wish Anastasia would be happy at that side of rainbow bridge."

Thank you sooooo much Adan and Michico, that was the most wonderful present ever!

And we also got our calendar from the
Cat Blogosphere!!! It was a beautiful Monday.

The show is cast. Thank you Sassy, thank you everybody for auditioning.
I am so excited about this whole endeavor - I might have had a glass too many of the Chateaux Nip last night.... And today is my boyfriend Ruis' birthday! Don't miss to congratulate him!
And who cares if I look a bit hung-over - I am still THE Mancat...

Announcement and Seven Things Meme

Sassy accepted my script for a CCSI Holiday Mystery!!!! I am SO excited - I won't tell more until she posts about it....
And Opus and Roscoe, the FABULOUS writers of the last CCSI story tagged me for this meme a while ago. I am supposed to write seven things you might not know about me. That will not be easy as I think I 'spilled' all about me at one time or another....

1. I prefer 5 day old food served in a dish somewhere in the garden over fresh food served in the house.

2. I take either the maid or the butler for a walk around the house every morning. Sometimes I walk them both, one after the other. They follow without the need of a leash!

3. I talk very loudly when I wrestle with Edgar. I did so with Anastasia too.

4. I love to use the pile of potting soil outside the butler's front door as a litter box. I still refuse to use any litter box inside.

5. I like attacking grass bushels and then play with them.

6. I sometimes hide in the ground covering bush in the back garden and wait for someone to come by, cat or human doesn't matter, to attack them. If no one comes by I scream, I mean, call for them.

7. I sleep about at least 12 uninterrupted hours every night.

Be The Blog Award

...this award is presented to a successful blogger, one who can “be the blog” - making it their own, staying with it, interacting with the readers, and just plain having fun.
My wonderful friends
Opus and Roscoe gave me this award and I am very grateful!
I would love to give this award to

The Cat Blogosphere. This blog deserves every award that is out there but especially this one! It's THE blog and I wouldn't know what to do without it....
Skeezix. Now if one cat can "be the blog" - that'll be him! Not only is it one of the funniest blogs at all but he always let's us know about things going on and friends in need! Like Angus right now.
Gretchen. Sending out Mike to visit all of us must be the most ingenious idea a cat ever have had! Did you follow this guys traveling itinerary so far? And if you haven't gotten in line to have Mike over for a week go to Gretchen's blog and do so!

You Make Me Smile Award

This is Emil! Karl allowed me to post today because it was of me, in a way, that we got the "You Make Me Smile Award" from Baby Mao! I'd rather not go into the details of how that came to be - let's just say it seems that Baby Mao and I share a similar affliction... Thank you Baby Mao for giving us this award!Karl also allowed ME to chose who we will give this award to!!! I am so excited!
I chose:

Clover, because she is a youngster like me, and grows as fast as I do, and she is so cute you have to smile when you just see her.
Jack, because I laugh when I read his blog and I liked it how he dressed up his crazy humans!
Russell, because I feel a connection there... It makes me smile to see how he wiggles his way into a household. Just like I do here!
Yao-Lin, because maybe then he will be nicer to Baby Mao. And he makes the maid fall of her chair a lot, laughing. Which makes me laugh!

Mancat Monday

I very much apologize for not being around that much but the staff has "things going on" and is under the impression that that justifies cutting back my blogging time....
Any suggestions for staff punishment will be greatly appreciated!

Fashion Friday by Mrs. OZ

Karl showed me Anastasia's hat collection - oh dear, that girl was the Imelda Marcos of hats!
With Karl's permission I will model one once in a while so they don't get to waste...
(Ramses - leave the feathers alone!)

On another note: I am very honored to be featured as Cat of the Day - but I have to say that Karl submitted my profile without neither my knowledge nor my consent...
What does he mean by "She is not a companion cat"? I just don't jump in there, I need to know who I am dealing with. And about the hissing.... Wouldn't you hiss if you have 5 pounds of kitty land on your back out of the blue all day long?

I do have to say I got better. I think I may start liking them actually....

IDYA #3: DUYS (Dress Up Your Staff)

Here is Anastasia’s last Dare in her own words:

I Dare You All to Dress Up Your Staff. Dress up your humans in the most ridiculous, silly, weird, comical, insane, funny, humiliating, splendid, outrageous outfit you can imagine, post their picture on your blog and put your name and the link to the post in the Mr. Linky box below.”

And please, Dare your
nomss friend and if you don’t have one, make one!

Finally you can get revenge:
Let your humans experience what it feels like to be dressed up for public display!!!

As an added incentive I, Karl, decided to give a Value T-shirt of your choice from the
watgog store to the viewers favorite!
Everybody can vote on their favorite picture next Friday and Saturday (November 9 and 10). One vote per animal. Our picture is not eligible for voting.

I put the Dare up today, on the
Day of the Dead, in the hope that Anastasia’s spirit might come and dare you herself! Questions? Help? Email us!

And here are the maid and the butler, dressed up according to the written instructions Anastasia left behind:
Helpful hint: Temptations didn’t work… Try chocolate…. Each of them got a full pound of it – they still would not smile, no matter what – I was under the impression that they did not appreciate the experience….
Use of Photoshop and similar programs is strongly discouraged but if you have humans that absolutely go wild when you try and dress them up – you can use image editing as a last resort of course…
If you like the T-shirts they are wearing you can purchase them here.

If you accept the Dare you can pick up your button
