Time Flies As Merci Ages

Merci:  It's hard to believe it's Friday again.  I heard time passes more quickly when one gets older and I guess it's true.

Taylor:  I don't think time passes quickly.

Merci:  That's because you're still young.  Time is flying by me so fast Marcus saw it yesterday and snapped at it.  He thought it was a bug.

Taylor:  What would Marcus have done if he had caught it?

Merci:  Eaten it. He thinks bugs are tasty.  It was before your time but he once put a young lady in shock when he leaped in the air, caught and swallowed a bug.

Taylor:  I'd have liked to have seen that.  Marcus is quite agile, especially when food is involved.

Merci: I'm glad he didn't catch my time.  I'm hoping to have more left so I can grow older.

Taylor:  You will.

Merci:  It's strange, but as I slow down, time speeds up.

Taylor:  Perhaps if you speed up, time will slow down?

Merci:  At my age, my "speed up" dial is broken.  All I have left are "slow down" and "Stuck in Reverse".

Buddy:  We would like to thank Chewy for the lovely St. Patrick's Day present.  Jan thinks those beer mugs are neat but they're too heavy for her to use as water glasses, so she offered them to Mr. Doug.  She's keeping the candy, thought. 

Cyndi:  It's time for another Mousebreath cat interview.

Rusty:  We enjoy meeting new furries and making new friends.

Micah:  We would love to meet you and be able to tell your story.  Interview slots are open for Cat Scouts, or kitties that blog or are on social media.  There's a contact box in our left sidebar. Drop us a note.

Percy:  This week we are featuring Hermes, Chip and Chessie Hauck.  Please stop by Mousebreath to meet this Cat Scouts family.

We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.


  1. Aw, Merci. I'm definitely with you on the time passing fast thing! But you're looking good so hopefully time is on your side!
    That's Purrfect

  2. Hari OM
    Yes Merci, I am finding this also!!! My response to it is to try and live in every minute; too much looking ahead or behind means the now disappears without any engagement and thus is lost furever... sigh... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Hey Merci, that just means you get to take your sweet old time doing anything!

  4. We wonder why time seems to fly as we age. Of, course, we really do not know how to tell time!

  5. Time is like toilet paper. The less you have the faster it goes.

  6. Mom looks at us and wishes time would slow down
    Lily & Edward

  7. GASP... Marcus you tried to take a BITE OUTTA TIME??? Wonder if it would have tasted like Chicken.
    Awwww that is sooooo nice of Miss Jan to SHARE the Chewy Goodie with somebuddy... even though SHE is keeping the CANDY Pawt.

  8. Oh, Merci, you are so lovely and I know you'll have more time if Marcus will keep his jaws locked! Yes, mama says things speed up all the time and she's going more slowly. Hmmm....must be a trend.

  9. Time definitely speeds up as we age. Months go by so fast that it is shocking. I wish it would slow down just a bit. ☺

  10. Our mom is always saying time is flying too!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  11. Merci, dare I ask how old you are?

  12. Merci we agree completely with you! Time is sure passing by so quickly.

  13. Mimi tells me that fur her, time passes like a blur.
    Yur Furend,
    Louis Dog Armstrong

  14. Merci, we agree with you. Time sure does pass by quickly for us all as we get older. We're going to go read the FFF interview now!

  15. Merci is beautiful! We agree that time does seem to get quicker as we get older.

  16. Merci, time does fly when we mature and it will sneak away from us if we don't pay attention.
    Charles and I wanted to say thanks for the kind words about our loss of Princess. They are appreciated and we are adjusting to being a one cat, one human household for now. Maybe one day soon, we'll find a new kitty that needs a home and I will lose control of the house again to the cats, which is as it should be.
    Thanks again,
    Charles and mommy, Anna

  17. Mommy knows all 'bout dat time flyin'. 'Course we kinda think it's goin' by too fast too. We all woulda been in shock over dat bug eatin' feat too. MOL Big hugs fur all

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  18. Oh, dear yes, we here know all about how the time flies by too fast these days.

  19. Time flies, and I'll get to your emails soon, I promise!
