Like ducks to water

*sniffle* My army of ducks has flown the coop! Well, except for my beloved cat-ducks - they remain MINE.

APPARENTLY the ducks were bought for Rumblemum's work. Further proof that this 'work' she's always going to is, in fact, FUN. I think they need a Rumblepurr there, to oversee any and all duckies...

To make it up to me, she put my cat-ducks to water!

I think you guys are a bit confused about this whole 'swimming' thing
Ok, Grey Duck seems to have figured it out
Yup, by jove he's got it!!
I didn't really play with the duckies in the water, I thought I'd let the little guys have their fun and I'd just watch. When Rumblemummy took the ducks out of the water I decided it was time to address the troops.

Ok little Black-and-white Duck. I hardly saw you out there
Quite frankly, you remind me a bit of Hammy
Maybe you need a bit of a push... you know, to motivate you!
No? You don't like water? You want me to
protect you?
Ok, down you go! We'll discuss your performance in
a bit more detail later. I warn you, there may be noming
Now. Orange Duck. About that sideways swimming. Not cool, Duck.
Not cool

(For everyone that was asking where we got the cat-ducks... they were a wonderful gift from one of our friends, the wonderful Miss Peggy! We love the cat-ducks and Rumblemummy is NOT allowed to take them anywhere near her work.)

Rumbles, you should get into the sink and SHOW those ducks how to swim!

Just an idea....

We love these duckies too - but maybe not so close to water.

Sparkle said...

I'm not much into duckies, cat or otherwise - mainly because I am not into water either!

I would LOVED to play with cat-ducks in the sink :)

Those duckies look like they'll like some bobbing about in the water!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, you're a strict Sargent to your cat duck troops!

Marg said...

Oh too funny Rumbles. Our silly duckies swim sidewards also. Those darn kitty duckies are a little on the lazy side. Glad you addressed the troups. Maybe you can get them straightened out. We may have to send our duckies of to you so you can train them. That could be your new project.

Thank cod Rumblemum didn't take YOUR cat rubber duckies to her work! With as many of them that Mom Peggy has donated to auctions, you'd think she'd let us have our very own! Boohoohoo!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Are you the Commander in Chief of the Duck patrol Rumbers?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Random Felines said...

we love seeing those cat ducks... mom said one of the rescues used them for a drawing and those guys couldn't swim either MOL

Nicole Thomas said...

That has got to be the cutest thing ever! I never thought to have floating duckies for my cats before. I'll have to remember that for the future!

The Florida Furkids said...

Hmmm....we need to find out if our cat ducks can swim. We might have to give them lessons if they can't!

Rumblemummy must have a cool job to be involved with your army of duckies! Rumbles, you are a great coach, we loved your advice to theese cat duckies of yours and we loved the post, it is awesome!

Kitties Blue said...

Hey Rumble, we have a couple of those cute cat ducks, but our mom doesn't let us play with them. You are very right to protect your kitty duckies and not let your mom remove them from the premises. Have fun! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

The Island Cats said...

Your cat ducks look like a lot of fun, Rumbles! But they might need swimming lessons.

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady said...

OMC! That looks so fun. We want some of those :) Rumbles, you did a good job telling those duckies what to do.

Jenna and Sissy said...

We wouldn't let your mommy take the cat-ducks anywhere, either!

Sweet Purrfections said...

For a minute we thought your mom took your kitty duckies to work and we were going to come down there and give her a piece of our mind. We need to get some of those ducks!

Derby, Ducky said...

We are on our way to help train the duck patrol!

Jacqueline said...
