Mancat Monday and Canmat-in-Braining Monday

Pierro:
Happy Monday kitties.

Today I am going to show you what Miles does every day after mom and dad have dinner.

He does the dishes!!!!

I did not even need to teach him this!

I think he is growing up to be a very good helper!

Miles:
I am still a canmat-in-braining but I love learning --and helping mom in the kitchen!

Pierro is a super fun and smart mancat!

Happy snappy bronkiebronkbonkbonkbonk Monday

It is the second week of Advent

have a lovely week preparing for Christmas!
It will be here soon.

and

It is Sinterklaas this day
for all of my friends in Holland!
When mom was a tiny girl 100 years ago, she lived in Holland and
loved Sinterklaas! Christmas was a blessed Holy day
a celebration of Christ's birth
and Sinterklaas was the fun festival
for presents and candy - it starts on December 5th.
Wow that has changed so much....

You don't have the power
to make life "fair"
but you do have the power
to make life joyful.

Really good helper : )

You are a really good helper, Miles. I only do that once in a great while. My favorite is the meat juice on the cutting board. My Mom doesn't really like that, though. I don't know why. She lets me lick off her plate and the pans, but she doesn't like me licking the cutting board. Weird.

Miles, you are learning a lot of very helpful things! Happy Sinterklaas!

Miles! What a fabulous help you are! Pierro, you teach the best things to Miles even though you didn't teach him this, he has enough training to start to pick up on things himself.

Mommy left the sink EMPTY I noticed when I jumped up to help her too. I think I am going to file a complaint.

Thank you for coming to make me feel better, Pierro and Miles. It worked.

Miles, could our mom please borrow you for our dishes? 'Cause she hates washing them and doesn't have an automatic washer. Your skills would come in handy!

P.S. The mom *loves* today's quote.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Mum loves your quote today and she says your blog does make life joyful. Miles could you teleport over and show us how to do the dishes please so mum stops moaning cos we always leave them to her.

Brian said...

You learned that all on your own Miles? Very impressive!!!

Katnip Lounge said...

Oh Miles...it's good your Rosemary is a good housekeeper and keeps her kitchen spic and span...if the kitties ate something in our kitchen sink...they might upchuck.

Our Mike used to do the dishes and our Teri is a little lax. That's why we eat on paper plates (may be she should too, hahameow!

Danielle said...

You're a good helper, Miles! Your mom is blessed to have such a willing assistant.

Sparkle said...

Paws up for doing kitchen duty, Miles! I know my human hates doing the dishes and I would love to take over for her - but for some reason she won't let me.

Looks like there are a few perks to doing the dishes!

You are a very good dish washer Miles.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Pierro! Hi Miles!! We think that you are doing a great job of teaching Miles, Pierro! And wow, learning to help with the dishes on his own - that shows you are a great influence on him!

And Miles, Stella thinks you look handsome helping out - she likes to help out with the dishes sometimes too!

Miles looks like he is very helpful indeed! Less decorations is probably a good idea.

I like I have the power to make life joyful--pets help!
