Mancat Monday at BBHQ with The B Team ©BionicBasil ®

It's Mancat Monday, and mew know what that means, so today Smooch is here sharing all his uber manlycatness

Doesn't he cut a magnificent specimen of a ruggedly handsome mancat?

On his pink blanky with all his little furiends.... look how happy he is!

Here's the correct one!

We can almost guarantee all the ladycats in the blogosphere will be swooning right now over this handsome tripawed pin-up! MOL

Also today we'll let mew into 3 big secrets or things that mew didn't know about Smooch.

 Offur the years his name has changed from Smoochie, to Smooch, to Smoo and now we find that he likes to be call MOO or Moo Moo. Maybe he was a cow in a previous life????

But the biggest thing is that he CAN'T PURR. He is:- The Cat Who Can't Purr.  He's neffur been able to purr in all the time he's lived at BBHQ - since 2012.  He tries, and offur the years he has developed a strange snorting/heavy-breathing sound which we call Moo's Odd Purr or MOP for short.  He seems happy with it, so that's all that matters.

And finally, when he was a tiny feral kitten at the P.A.'s wurk, she named him Luna before she realised he was actually a little boy cat!  [Maybe that's why he likes his pink blanky! MOL MOL]

So we'll leave mew to admire Smooch in peace, and hopefully see mew on Wednesday when we're be back with The Pet Parade.  

Just before we pop off, Amber's up to 24 comments on her commentathon for the OZ Bush Fires, we're still 6 short of our target of 30, so if any of mew could go and leave a paw print, that would be epic! 

See mew on Wednesday, until then...

Keep calm and do manly things!

  1. That is a handsome mancatly picture of Smooch, or should I say Moo! The first shows that all mancats should have a soft side too.
    That is unusual that he can't purr, but bless him for trying.

  2. You are a very nice looking kitty. Our kitty sis Sophie purrs a lot, but I don't think we have ever heard cat bro Bert purr.

  3. Moo Moo is a handsome fella. I don't have any lovely felines here to swoon or admire his good looks. But, you know with black and white color coat then maybe you're on to something about him being a cow in a previous life. lol Have a happpy Moooonday! :)

    Curious as a Cathy

  4. I didn't know those things about you Smooch, you are a very interesting and very handsome mancat.

  5. I rather enjoy the name Moo Moo! It's the tone of the voice, whether it says, Moo Moo or Smooch, or Handsome Mancat.

  6. I loved the three things the best and Smooch can't purr. That would be the only cat I know that can't purr. He's a fine looking mancat that likes his pink blanket.
