Meezer, Mancat, and Midnight Monday... and Awardies!

Daisy asked, about our window-perching, if Marilyn ever joins us! Well, sometimes she does. But Marilyn's furry much a people cat and not as much of a cat-cat. She likes havin plenty of purrsonal space from the rest of us Ballicai.

So if me and Brainball and Dorydoo are onna perchie, then Marilyn will watch from somewheres else until we all leave, then she'll jump on the perchie. Like in this pickshure:




Or if she's really determined to get up onna perchie, she'll wait 'til just one or two of us is up there, then she'll get up there, too, but she keeps a wide berth.

Well, mostly. Sometimes she nose-kisses with us, but she's gotta be in the mood. Marilyn's mostly about the beans -- espeshully sittin in Mom's lap.

Here's a video of me and Brainball and Dorydoo onna perchie, birdwatchin:




It's Meezer Mancat Monday, so I hadded to try to mess around inna kitchen sinkie fur the occasion:




And Brianball, our Alpha Mancat, looked extra lionlike and mancatly:



And Dorydoo, fur Midnight Monday, did her bestest owl impresshun. Dorydoo's not mad when she does her owl thing. It usually means she's deep in thought, either about her sweetie Earl Grey or about figyoorin out the Grand Unnifickashun Theory in Physics. She's a big fan of Superstrings. Under supervishun of course. Momma wouldn't want her to swaller any, hehehe.



Here's a beeyootiful awardie Maggy and Zoey at Zoolatry gaved to us Ballicai: thankies so much, Maggy and Zoey! We're deeply touched and honored. We love you and we appreshiate yur wunnerful talent!



And guess what! Mickey Mantle, mancat to my sistur Marilyn MonREOW, gaved me the HIP Awardie! Isn't that the hippest thing efur!

Mick is SUPERDUPER hip. He's a great mancat to my sistur, he writes poetry, he's a New York Legend and is furry nice and good-hearted to efurrycat. Thankies so much, Mick! You are pawesome!



I'll pass the awardie on to my hip and beeyootiful sweetiepie Ariel (she's on bloggie break but she'll have this awardie fur when she gets back), to my great buddy Jeter Harris who is a great Hip Cat, and to our fluffsiscuz, Gretchen, who's a great Hip Cat and knows how to operate the fancy telleportin machine to help her bruther Mike the Mysterious on his wurld travels!

Ballicai cats are really special~! Hahaha~~ I always enjoy your video, very very cute~! I think you are so cute watching outside of the window :) Congratulations on your awards~!!!!! I am very very happy for you!

Gretchen said...

Oh, thank you Mao. Mike got the Hip award and I was jealous. Mainly because it would look so gorgeous on my site with my pink and purple colors. You're a pretty hip mancat, and Alpha Lion and the Owl are pretty hip cats. Even Marilyn.

I think you have a very nice perch for all of you. It kind of looks like your mom bean and have similar birdbaths.

Thanks for the Award, I'll try an get it up soon. I've already blogged for today and might have to wait few days before I get to blog again.

Hugs to all my best friends-brothers & sister cousins...and floofies...G

Did I say that I has happy to see fuzz on Brainball's butt.

Also, go check out Mike's site. He's getting a bit whacky hanging around home...the weather just won't cooperate. Plus mom bean put his new photo's and accessories on his portal site so he'll be ready to go.

Hugs...again...luvs y'all.

Congratulations on your award. I am like Marilyn--I am much more about people.

Tara said...

Oh, congratulations on the awards! You look like you are washing your paws there Mao Mao! And when I get that owl look, it usually means I'm irritated.....

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Your window perch looks wonderful! Wow, Dorydoo is very smart to understand superstring theory!

Congratulations on your awards! They are very well deserved!

Daisy said...

Thanks for answering my question about Marilyn! It is neat how each of the Ballicai have your own very distinctive personality.

I do not know why, but that video of the three of you looking here-there-everywhere out the window made me laugh and laugh!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

We are totally with Marilyn, we sometimes will look out the window, too, but since we can go outside we're wherever Mom is. Like right now, Gandalf's sitting on Mom's hand and Grayson's dedicating a nap to Cecil's Auntie Bea right next to Mom. Mom's feeling the love.

The Meezers said...

wow, we never all look out the window at the same time. Bill usually starts rasslin if we are all too close. kittens.

goldenshade said...

Congrats on your award! You Ballicai are very Hip indeed.

Thanks for dropping by and offering your comforting words Mao. Greatly appreciated.

Mickey said...

Oh boy!! I can't wait till we can have our window open!!!! I love to see the birds & squirrels like you guys in your video. At night, I watch the bats on the back deck :)
You have some very cool awards too!! Good job :)
Purrs Mickey

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Thanks. It's nice to see Dory getting some blog time!

Boy said...

Hey you hip ones! Cool!

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

We think you are all hip cats! I like sitting in the windows and watching the birdies and squirrels too but the two old geezers mostly lay around and sleep.

Marilyn and Lucy are a lot alike - they both love Mom the best!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

I love the picture of you 3 on your perch and Marilyn looking from behind. It is rare to have a picture of all 4 of you together!

Congratulations on your awards, you guys are definately hip!

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Marilyn is just like Sultanfus. She doesn't like to share her space either. Poor Guy gets his head bopped an awful lot because he is just the opposite.

Tybalt said...

Congratulations on your awards! I love that picture of all of you together . . . even Marilyn lurking in the corner awaiting her turn on the perchie. ;)

Sunny's Mommy said...

That's a great video of the 3 of you sitting on the perchie. That would not be happening here, unfortunately. They'd be fighting over who's sitting where and who gets the best spot. Ack.

Congratulations to all of you on your awards. They're very well deserved :-D

PS: I think Dorydoo does one of the best owl impressions I've ever seen!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yoo are sure a good looking fambly. Hip too.

The Furry Kids said...

That is the best perch ever. I think I would like to share it with Dorydoo.

Whiskie kissies,
EG

The Crew said...

Cool awards! We like sitting in windows too, 'cept ours will only hold 2 of us.

Forty Paws said...

Well that's quite a boatload of awardies!!! Concatulations!

We luf looking out the winders too, and some of us keep wide-berths from the others. But then sometimes we don't.

Luf, Us

Eric and Flynn said...

We liked watching you watching the birdies

Tesla said...

what great awards! afterall, yoo guys really are lots of fun!

Kelly Cat said...

It sounds like Marilyn is a lady cat who knows to keep her distance from the rest of you. Aw, she should be able to trust you, right?

Congrats on the well-deserved honors!

Moki said...

Congradulations on all your awards! You so deserve them. Well done...bravo bravo!

catsynth said...

That's a cool trick that DoryDoo has with the "owl ears." And lots of window-sill sitting going on! Great photos, and congrats on the awards.

Jimmy Joe said...

Congratulations on your awards, buddy! That perch looks like a great view.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Camie's Kitties said...

It looks like you are having a lot of fun birdwatching. Our window that gets opened for us doesn't look out on birds - it looks out on a concrete wall. But we do like to look out front at the birdies.

Tiki, Tavi, Cody and Camie

Lux said...

I really do love your window - you all look so interested in watching outside! You're all so lovely ...

Java's Coffee House said...

That looks like fun bird watching. I spend most of my time in fronts of my windows, watching either the birdies or the traffic. I likes watching the cars.
