Just One of Those Days

Good grief Kali….I feel chilled to the bone and I haven’t even been outside. I know!  It’s so cold you could freeze a mouse on the banister….. but then again who wants to?  I think we need to think of something else or we’ll be whining at mom soon.                                             

You want to play *Hat*?  I don’t want to play Hat.  You’ll make me wear the hat and then you’ll laugh at me.

Hmmm….it’s a sun hat….maybe it’ll get warmer in here.

Quit laughing at me, Kali….I don’t even have it on.  I’m not playing with you….you got a giggle bug up your butt.  Well, it is Tock-tober, Shoko. Oh my, that’s right Kali.  Let’s see your butt.  Not bloody likely Shoko….you’ll draw a face on my dainty rear end or something.  Who me….never!                                                    

Well, that’s it for us then.  Happy Tock-tober and don’t forget to see my selfie on The Cat On My Head blog.  Click on the name and we’ll take you to see our friends too.                                                   Have a great weekend.  Night friends.                                               

Artsy Caturday with Shoko

It’s an artsy Caturday.  We’ve been absent during artsy day for 3 weeks.  Dang near a month mom.  Everyone will have forgotten us.  Don’t be so dramatic, Shoko.  Geez!

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty will be happy to see us.  She is such a pretty wee gal.                                                       Mom decided to cube me and then added the Fairy effect on Lunapic.                                                          Have a great Caturday friends.                                                      

Fill-Ins on Fryday

Haha…You look funny Shoko!  Whatcha mean Kali?                                                 You gotta admit you don’t look very happy?  It’s that darn Cappytan….he comes over growls at me and steals my nip. I know he’s rude.  Thank goodness mom chases him away all the time.  Forget him…the nip is almost finished for the year and we’ll get fresh stuff next year.  He really burns my butt though!   Cappytan is not in our thoughts tonight, Shoko, concentrate on the Fryday Fill-Ins from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.  Click on the names to be taken to their blogs.                                                         

Like each week, we are given 4 statements to fill-in.  The first 2 were done by Ellen and the last 2 by Annie. Here we go:

1. If I was a ghost, I would haunt…..THE VET’S OFFICE.  I’D SCARE THE DEWORMING MEDICINE OUT OF THEM.  DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER MY COSTUME SOME YEARS BACK.                                                   MAKE NO MISTAKE, I AM THE UNDEAD!

2.  I always…..RUN THE OTHER WAY AND HIDE…..when…..ANYONE RINGS THE DOORBELL                                               

NO NEED TO EXPOSE MYSELF TO POSSIBLE DANGER.

All right…my turn Shoko.   
3. My favourite scary story is…..PSYCHO.   I TELL YA NORMAN BATES IS NUTTIER THAN THE M & M RED PEANUT!  I DON’T MEAN THAT NEW GARBAGE MOVIE….I MEAN THE HORRIFYING 1960 PICTURE.                                               

4. I will be so glad when…..SHOKO QUITS RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE MEWING “BOO…SCARED YA…DIDN’T I, EH?”

                                               Geez, I don’t do that Kali….really!

 

Review of The Tabcat Tracking System

 

We don’t do reviews as a rule but we found Loc8tor to be ahead of the pack with innovative ideas for tracking lost items.  Click on their name to see more of their history.

SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM….. MAROON

The package arrived in the mail a couple of days ago and what struck mom right away was the weight and compactness of the parcel.  The entire box weighed a pound.

Inside the box is;

1 Tabcat Handset
2 Lightweight Homing Tags
2 Splashproof Cases
Mini Tool To Open Tag                                                      
My curiosity was piqued.                                                 

I made sure mom handled it with care and I examined the Tabcat personally.

 

Shoko has volunteered to wear the Tabcat disc on her collar to show us how it works.                                                  

The Splashproof case matches my eyes.

The disc is ideal because I’ve rolled outside in my garden to see if dirt gets into the mechanism and it doesn’t. 

My thinking here is, we must wear the Tabcat disc everyday cause one never knows when one might get lost or where curiosity might take one.  So the disc should be able to stand up to everyday situations.

One thing that is making my fur itch is the possibility that the beeping may sound like a “clicker.”  I hate the “Clicker” with a passion that lies deep within me.  I hear a click and I leave the room as fast as my paws will carry me.  I don’t care if you have millions of treats with catnip on top…..I’m outta there!                                               Is the “Clicker” gone yet?

 

The sound is more of a beep than a click so I didn’t run away.  The range is 400 feet.

You can purchase the Tabcat at Amazon.com.  Simply click on Tabcat and be taken to the selection.

You can also purchase your monitor directly from the Tabcat Shop online.

 

 

The only suggestion that I have for Loc8tor is the button that starts the Tabcat on the right-hand side is in the identical location on the left-hand side for the sound.  So holding the Tabcat comfortably, one hand is on the start and the fingers are on the sound.  I would suggest making these buttons or one of them higher than the other for easier application.

We were not reimbursed in any way for this review.  Everything in this review is from Shoko and I, even the opinions are ours.  We enjoyed bringing this tracking device to your attention friends.

 

If you have any questions about the Tabcat and it’s functioning, put your questions in the comments and David Ansell from Tabcat will assist you with your inquiries. 

 

Positive Thoughts Help A Struggling Plant

Shoko get away from the prayer plant.  Mom doesn’t want teeth marks in her new plant.  Just examining it for bugs.  Some of these bugs can be pretty small and annoying.  Like yourself, perhaps?  That’s not funny Kali…..I’m being helpful.  That’s true Shoko and I’m sorry for my lack of grace.  I must’ve been in your company too long.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                            

You know Kali, this Prayer Plant needs to be repotted….like now!  It’s very root bound.  How can I get mom’s attention so she’ll repot this Prayer plant.

Is this close enough to the edge of the counter, Kali? I think that did it Shoko, she’s getting the dirt and a new pot.

Mom found a baby plant in the Prayer plant and divided it from the big Prayer plant.  Now they each have a new home.                                                    

Mondays are McGuffy’s Reader‘s day for spreading some positive thoughts into our environment.                                                   

Our positive thought involves the Prayer plant.

My positive attitude that the prayer plant needed repotting led to mom seeing that the prayer plant did indeed need repotting and her finding a baby plant as a positive outcome.

Talk with a stranger as you walk down the street.  You may be the first to speak to him all day.

 

A Cool Walk In The Lane

 

C’mon mom let’s go.  Do you have to put that big boot on?  You look odd but as long as you can get to the Lane. Mmmm…OK.                                           

All right…we’re off in a cloud of nip and bones!

Yuck…it’s all yellow and bare out here.  Maybe there’s a mouse about.

Here mewssseeeyyy…come play with me.  We’ll have fun.                                                    

Guess they don’t believe me.  I can hear little pawsteps running away.

I’m coming mom…there are so many prey smells around.

Time to go home?  OK, let’s hit the dirt and come again tomorrow.

That was Saturday, my friends.  Sunday arrived with a surprise.

Snow!! Oh, no….hope it disappears.

My bowl of water was very cold.                                                   Fortunately, it’s The Cat On My Head’s selfie Sunday so I took the picture mom had me shoot yesterday and blended it in with all the other furries pictures.  Come see it at The Cat On My Head’s blog.  Simply click on the name and be swept along with the tide.

Flippin’, Fryday, Friendly Fill-Ins From 2 Funky Foxes

 

Today is the day for the Fill-Ins, hosted by Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.  I will present the first two statements and Kali Kit the other two.

1. Keep calm and …..SMILE.  THEY’LL NEVER KNOW YOU ENJOYED  THEIR FISH BEFORE THEM.                                              .
2. WINTER….. disappoints me.  IT IS SO COLD THAT I HAVE TO STAY INSIDE UNTIL THE AFTERNOON WHEN THE SUN MAY COME OUT.  NO MORE RUNNING OUT IN THE MORNING TO GO TINKLES.  THE GROUND IS FROZEN AND THE TEMPERATURE FREEZES ONE’S TINKLE. BRRR…                                                YOU SEE WE ARE WALKING OUTSIDE AIMLESSLY TO KEEP THE COLD AWAY.

3. OREGANO….. is my ….DOWNFALL.  I LOVE OREGANO AND TRY MOM’S IN THE GARDEN EVERY YEAR. Yes, oregano is a perennial.

4. In retrospect, ….I WAS A GOOD KITTY MOST OF MY LIFE SO I CAN LET MY fURS DOWN OCCASIONALLY AND BE A LITTLE BIT HELTER SKELTER.

 
                                                 

 

MOL…be good this weekend my friends and we’ll see you on the flip-flop.
