ManCat MonDay-My Decision

My Decision Monday
I have finally come to my decision. I have been thinking and thinking and thinking. What's a GirlCat to do with two marriage proposals?


I am so appreciative to all who offered advice. And while I found everyone's advice to be very good, I found Fred's advice to be quite interesting. Fred is a human male, and this is what he said:

1. "I'm with Skeeter. String 'em along for awhile. Then, find out which one has the biggest stash of catnip and go for it!"

2. "Accept them both. Soak them for all they're worth."
I hope Fred isn't giving us all a clue as to how his Missus treats him!!! Maybe it's just an honest male perspective!
Anyway, after strolling and ruminating through the garden for almost a week now, it suddenly occurred to me: Sly and I both love to garden! And he has been so sweet and VERY thoughtful, by offering to court me first, if I was afraid of the M word. And I remembered that my teddy bear is named for Sly: SlyBear!

And let's not forget how understanding SlyCat was over the "Golden Retriever Incident."

So my decision is this: I'm still a little worried about commitment and marriage, but my heart is with SlyCat. So, I will accept his offer to court me.

I think this means that I get to wear a Tiara and hold court. This would make sense, because my pet humans, WW, Julie, and Bob are always referring to me as "The Princess."

Do I get to keep the rings?

Luv,
Skittles, The Huntress

p.s. Thanks to all who voted in the poll. This raised $34.00 for CFHF! Yeah!

Of course you get to wear a Tiara and be royalty. I'm so glad that you decided to continue our relationship with a courtship. This will give us more time to get to know each other and decide if Marriage is the right thing. Yes, you may also keep the ring. At least the one that I gave you, you'll have to ask Sam about the one that he gave to you. I would also like to get to know Sam more, because I consider him an honorable mancat, as long as it wouldn't be too hard for him. I love you my dear Skittles!!!!

Hooray for Sly! I think you made the perfect decision, Skittles. And also, hooray for CFHF!

Sly is a true gentlemancat.

Fred said...

The Missus and I were both dirt poor when we got married, so I know she didn't marry me for any material goodies.

Congratulations on your decision. I would offer you one of my three as a potential back-up, but, well, they're all female. However, they are available for help, should you ever need it.

Their advice is only $1.00 per minute. Very reasonable.

Lux said...

I know the decision was a difficult one, Skittles, but I think you made a great one!

Derby said...

Mum says keep the jewels! It may not be proper, but it is fun! You can maybe trade them for catnip if needed.

meemsnyc said...

Oooh, Sly cat must be thrilled!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yay fur CFHF...and dat was a furry good choice. We just wonder how Sammy is gonna take it. Maybe he can accept being just frends. After all, he's still get to hang out but da preshur is off to be "purrfect" all da time.

Parker said...

Hooray for you! And CFHF is such a good cause!
I think you came up with the right decision!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Yeah for Sly! Absolutely, Skittles! A Tiara would be necessary! Congratulations to you both on your courtship, and hooray for CFHF, too!

Kelly Cat said...

Well, that is great news, Skittles, both for you and for CFHF. Congratulations!

Alexi said...

Hi Skittles,
We agree. Accepting Sly's offer of courtship is the way to go. Mombean and Blu Cat Man courted for two years and then were engaged for one year before they married. Many years ago, before beans were allowed to court, the fella had to ask permission from the girl's fambly. You should keep Sly's ring as you two could be considered engaged.
If Sammy gave you one, you should return it as you accepted Sly's offer and ring.

We hope you and Skittles have many happy years together! Are you all going to have an engagement party??

Excellent choice, smart woman!

PB & J said...

We think you made the right decision Skittles - well done!

Eric and Flynn said...

Well done on making your decision Skittles, and of course you must have a tiara.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, that sounds like a very mature decision. Don't forget to post a photo wearing your tiara.

That looks like a fun way to raise money for a good cause.

Tybalt said...

I think you probably made a wise decision, Skittles - and I bet you look stunning in the tiara!

Mr. Echo said...

The M word skairs me too! I hope yoo will be vary happy. And yoo will look bedder in the tiara than he will!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

who hoo!!!! i think this is great and a perfect decision. you and Sly can get to know each other AND you get to wear a tiara and a velvet cape cause your royalty!

i'm sure Sam will understand and want to still be friends.

Irishcoda said...

Congratulations and best wishes, Skittles, sounds like you came to a very wise decision!

Colby and Cheddar said...

Dat's good; wear the tiara and take the catnip! Then when we grows up, maybe we will court you, too--'cept we don't like to share our stuff very much, 'specially treats!
