ManCat Monday with Cousin Trooper

Hi furriends, Cousin Trooper here.  I want to tell you a story about how much I love my Mommy.

The other night Mommy was sleeping and she felt me quietly jump up on the bed, move around a bit and then leave.  She just continued to sleep until she felt something next to her hand.  She didn't want to get up and thought that it was me.  It wasn't.......

I brought her a really nice present!  A GIANT Palmetto bug!!  For those who don't know what a Palmetto bug is click HERE (unless you're squeamish!)

For some reason, she didn't seem pleased.   Humans, there's no figuring them out.

 Please keep Mommy in your purrs and prayers.  She's having a colonoscopy tomorrow.  
Thank you!  Cousin Trooper

Cousin Trooper, that was SO sweet of you! And you know you could have totally kept it for yourself, but no, you freely gave it away!

I am already purring for your human - the lead-in to getting a colonoscopy is not fun to begin with!

Wow, that was really ungrateful of her! So thoughtful that you brought her something special, too.

We will definitely keep her in our purrayers.

What a nice gift you brought your mommy!!

Good luck on her test. Our mom had one of those earlier this year and it wasn't too bad, she said.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Our mom wouldn't click to see what a palmetto bug looks like, 'cause she IS squeamish. LOL. She says yuck, but we're sure it must be quite yummy. That was a very loving gift that you gave your mom, Cousin Trooper.

We're purring and purraying for your mom that the colonoscopy comes back normal!

Mr. Pip said...

I can't imagine why she wasn't pleased? BOL!

Your pal, PIp

Our mom wouldn't have been too happy either. We think we would have just stomped on it really hard and then devoured it.

We are sending our best purrs to your mom Cousin Trooper - we hope everything is clear when she has her appointment tomorrow.
We don't think a palmetto is what she would think of as a present!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cousin Trooper, how thoughtful of you to bring your mommy breakfast in bed.

What? She didn't eat it?

How good of you to get her a gift! And we will think good thoughts for your mum. Our Male just had to have one of those and I think the prep is worse than the procedure.

Julie says..Trooper, the palmetto bug scared me to death when I first moved to Florida years ago. A kitty like you giving one to me would have been better, for sure, but I would still prefer to be awake!

Hugs to mom. We'll be sending good thoughts her way for tomorrow.
