ManCat Monday - The Blessing of the Pets

Hi everyone, Tamir here! Yesterday I was enjoying our Easy Like Sunday nap when I was pulled up and stuck in the P-T-U with my sisfur Allie.....

Ellie was also stuck in a P-T-U of her own......Why did I have to share? Ellie and Allie make hissy face when they are in a cage together. ManCats like me end up sharing...and Allie doesn't share much...notice how she gets the primo spot looking out?
We all got into the big metal machine and drove miles and miles...maybe a gazillion miles to Mom and Dad's Church....
Here we are in front of the Shrine for the Blessed Mother. Now, you probably wonder what we were doing at church...

Today is the feast of St. Francis of Assisi who is the patron saint of animals. We were there to be blessed! Here's a video Mom took of all of the pets being blessed. We were the very last ones so you have to go all the way through to see us. There were turtles, woofies and a bun there too. Mom says we're all very well behaved now! Let's see how long THAT lasts!!

How wonderful! My human has always wanted to do that, but she thinks it would be too stressful for me.

Huffle Mawson said...

You should be safe for a long time now!

The Monkeys said...

You were very well-behaved! We don't know how calm we would be with all those woofies around!

Maggie May said...

The blessing is so wonderful! Our mom would love to do that with us.

The Island Cats said...

That's pretty cool that you got to go get blessed!! How special! Our mom forgot all about it and it was too late to take us to Church.

Marg said...

That is such a good video. It looks like you were the only cats so you are very special and blessed. We used to have a day like that. Great job of doing the video.

Cory said...

We think it's so cool that your mom and dad take you to this special blessing!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh goodness you were so well behaved - mum would never take us anywhere like that because we would shriek like crazy. She says a short trip to the stabby place is a short trip too far with us!!

Kea said...

They do that here too, at St. George's Anglican Cathedral. But our mom would never take us, we boys howl piteously in the carrier and Annie freezes in terror. None of us ever would be calm enough to do that. You are lucky--well, you are blessed! :-)

Brian said...

I think you did great and you were so well behaved!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

KOOL~~~! Mom LOL'd when it was your turn! You were like...What the heck are you doing? Why are you throwing wet stuff on us?

BeadedTail said...

There were a lot of woofies around but you three were very well behaved in your PTUs! We think it's so wonderful that you were blessed!

Ginger Jasper said...

How lovely to be blessed, and everyone was so well behaved.

How cool to see everyone getting blessed! You three were sooo good about it, too. Tabby and our now-angel Sara Kitty went one year. Mommy had a birthday party to go to in the afternoon, so we didn't get to go this year.

Katnip Lounge said...

That is wonderful. Your Mom & Dad are great and love you very much to have you all blessed...as blessed as you have made their lives.

ABBY said...

We think that was really cool!

None of us has been online cuz Momma has been buzy with 'things'...we don't know what's more important than us, but....we just read through your posts and we wanted to say that some people with no compassion don't understand that losing one of our furry babies is just as painful as losing any family member. Momma has had people say things to us that were cruel when she lost furry babies, so she understood.

Oh, "St. Francis of Assisi " So that's how he's called in English, In Spanish, the name is similar "San Francisco de Asis"...

I'll try to go to the church next year, I don't have a P-T-U, and some say it's scary to be inside one, I don't know...

How wonderful. Mum took us two for our blessing when we were young kittens. Then she tooks our sausage of a pug brother for his blessing just a couple of years ago. Mum and Dad get really emotional at the part when they say a pray for animals no longer with us. Mum usually starts bawling. We luved the video of you being blessed. And you were so well behaved too!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

That's verreh sweet! The Human says they do that every year here in SF at St Peter & Paul's in North Beach, and I'm sure she would like to take me, but you know what? Not.Going.To.Happen!

Moi? I would scream so loud you'd hear me all the way in Florida ;-)
