Sunday Selfies with Shoko

The Cat on my HeadHere it is Sunday already.  Time for the Sunday Selfies with our awesome blog hop host The Cat On My Head.  After admiring my selfie….visit the others and see which want to pose and which ones are flyin’ by the seat of their furs.

Today I am the stand in for Kali who is kinda spacy and wishes to be left alone with her tiara.

Mom ordered me a vest instead of my harness seeing I was able to rid myself of the harness in very little time.  I got a tiger type vest and mom placed me in it and…..nothing happened.  I would not move.                                                             aaashokovest3I don’t like this!  It feels more secure and there’s no wiggle room.  I look like a wee tiger with a big head.

I guess we’re going to have to practice in the basement again.  I was quite happy with the harness.

Treats?  Ahhh…I’m not movin’.  I don’t care for those treats anyway.  Put some good ones down and we’ll mew.                                                                         aashokovest2

May your selfie reflect the REAL you.

Kali’s Vet Visit

Mom was rather nonchalant this morning, which means she’s up to something.  I was keeping an eye open for any quick activity on her part….just in case she decided it was time I got meds cause my life was too happy.  Then it happened…Kali was picked up and thrown in her carrier.  Alright. alright, gently put into the carrier.  They all jumped in the Toyota, except for Kali who was singin’ the blues.  Take it away Kali.                                                              smsm KaliWe arrived at the vet’s stinky house and were taken into the office immediately.  My leg seemed to feel better almost instantly and I wanted off the cold steel table.  I hid and tried to pretend I was home.  Oh dear, home doesn’t ever stink like this place.                                                                       ackalivetDoes this pose look like you’ve seen it before?  This is my standard pose at the vets so nothing varies much.

Dr. V sauntered into the office and stated I was beautiful….maybe she’s not so bad after all.  She stroked me and then felt all up my front legs.  She was getting a little rude.  We just met!  She then put me on the floor and yelled asked me to walk.  I hobbled like at home.  She was quite concerned as was mom.  They decided to torture me for hours.  That’s what it felt like but really Dr. V did an x-ray of each leg.  Both legs showed a fair bit of arthritis in the shoulders and paws.  The worst arthritis was in my elbows which were inflamed and quite swollen.   I was at a loss for mew’s.  Horrified even!  Does this mean I’ll no longer pad about like a model?  I started to feel glum.  This is when Dr. V said I should be on liquid morphine for three days to control the inflammation and bring the swelling down.  They might just as well have been barking…I understood nothing.  Then Dr. V told mom and dad they had to treat me like a princess on a velvet pillow for the next few days.  I understood that.  What a marvelous vet….I like her.  No other vet has ever said that before. 

When we got home I told Shoko what the vet said and she didn’t believe me.  You’ll see Shoko.                                                                            aakaliupcloseI had some yucky liquid in my mouth after supper and I am very sleepy, but my elbow is ok….not great but ok.  Really, I don’t care if I have an elbow about now.  I’m going to dream about the new tiara mom got for me.                                                               aaakalitiara

Have a great weekend my fwiends….think the morphine is starting to woke.

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was ……I DON’T GO TO THE THEATRE.  TOO MANY PEOPLE FOR ME.  THE LAST MOVIE MOM WENT TO SEE WAS “THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS.”  SHE WAS VERY SUSPICIOUS OF OUR BEHAVIOUR AFTER THE MOVIE.                                                                   aakalisit2. The title of my autobiography would be….. THE BEAUTIFUL FLAME-POINT FELINE OF THE NORTH SPEAKS OUT ON THE TREATS OF LIFE.  SNAZZY TITLE, EH?                                                   kali-with-lei3. I would love to learn …...HOW TO OPEN A CAN.  THAT WAY WHEN I GET HUNGRY, I CAN JUST RIP THE LID OFF.  OH YEA, I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE PANTRY DOOR FIRST.                                                                     asheat   I’d even share my food with Shoko.

 4. I am glad that I learned …..TO BE QUIET IN THE STROLLER, because …..A RIDE IN THE STROLLER IS SO MUCH FUN.  I KNOW MOM WOULDN’T KEEPTAKING ME IF I CONTINUED TO YELL AT HER.

Remember Me Thursday

Yes, I remember the wonderful days vividly!  Those carefree days of summer in the veggie garden.  I watched Cow Kitty make a fool of himself attacking the pea netting.                                                             aaaagardenshoksmI’m sniffing to see if there is enough water here for the peas…..if not I must contribute…MOL

Cow Kitty was delighted to be back in the vegetable garden too.  Sitting up on the frame for the peas, surveying the garden..  See how well the Scarlet Runner beans produced this year.                                                                         aackbeans

I dipped my paws in the pool water. The pool was an oasis for all thirsty creatures that braved Fort Meezer.  We did have more water in the pool.  Luckily there were no ducks swimming in it.  Cow Kitty would have leaped in the pool if that happened.

We were introduced to our new stroller. I had reservations. I mean a basket on wheels?  Seriously?  I had no idea of the thrills ahead.

Get outta here you yappy woofies….your mama wears diapers!!  MOL…..hiththtth!                                                   aaaaaashokostroll

Kali was delighted with a slow stroll through the neighbourhood. She is very nosy and happy when out and about meeting peeps.

Kali was happy to let the woofies be and enjoy the fresh air.

We had several walks down the Lane.  Cow Kitty even came with us.  I didn’t like him with us, he’s too bossy.                                                  aaaaashokckkaliOh mom, can you enlarge this picture?  Kali is way behind on the right hand side but she looks like a dot.  She always seems to dance to her own tune.                                                                      ackskalIs that the best you can do?  Kali’s still a dot but everyone can see I’m telling Cow Kitty off and he could care less.

 

We participated with the others with Phoebe’s sunglasses.  I felt like a movie star but all was dark.  Kali wore them too. She’s not impressed with mom putting them on.  Whatever!!

Kali and I entered a few events at the Pawlympics, Easy’s Tuneful Farting, Noodle’s Tongue Rolls and Raspberries and Dezi’s Fly Fishin’.  My favourite was Easy’s Tuneful Farting cause it really messed with Kali’s head. MOL                                                                          kalitunefulfartingKali is embarrassed because ladies don’t talk of these terrible bodily functions.

We won  ribbons and a certificate for our efforts in Easy’s Tuneful Farting.                                                                   img_0815

This summer I had two teeth out and met the substitute Tooth Fairy.  Scary and hairy!                                                                           atoothfairyMom took me for a walk on my harness and found out I can slip out of the harness like a magician.                                                                      aashokcrleashMOL….that was fun!  The look on mom’s face was priceless.

 

These have been great summer moments in our lives and a fantabulous way to share on Remember me Thursday.

To keep peeps up to date.  Here is a picture of mom’s finger without the bandage.  No more drugs or pain just a little tightness on the finger.                                                              aafingerniShe gets the stitches out tomorrow.  She’s some happy about it.

There you have it our happy memories of the summer.  Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and the cold weather.

May all your worms be in the ground my friends! MOL                                                                   SHOKOKALI2

Treats For Lexi Day

We plan to celebrate our friend Lexi, the Schnauzer who would’ve been mayor of Blogville.                                                                    mayorlMom told us we could have any treat we wanted for Lexi Day.  Kali and I huddled together and debated about the treat…..catnip, catnip flavoured greenies, Island Paradise, nipade….What about…(&$?  Never thought of it Kali but that’s my very favourite.  Yours too!  OK mom, we decided.  We want oven roasted chicken from the deli.  This is an extra special treat day and a celebration so nothing but the best.  Off mom went to the deli and ordered oven roasted chicken cut thin for us girls.  The man in the deli said…”Lucky cats!  We have cheaper cuts here.”  Mom told him only the best for two special girls and the celebration of a terrific friend.

Mom rushed home with our goodies.                                                           kalilexiHere’s to a great friend, a super actress and author.                                                                      shoklexiI loved this chicky so much I couldn’t stay still so my head is a wee bit blurry.  Sorry my friends.

Artsy Fartsy Caturday With Sh…Oh….Kali

caturdayartbannerTime for Athena and Marie’s Caturday Blog Hop.  Join us in wishing all the anipals a great time while they pose.

Shoko doesn’t want to participate this week because mom used a fisheye on her last week and she is contemplating a wobble instead of a full-fledged strike.                                                                     ashoktv2 Alright, Shoko is also a TV junkie like mom and is spending her extra time watching all sorts of shows.  It’s pouring here and summer is pretty well over so time to get into the Autumn mode.

Seeing as Shoko is falling behind on her duties we will be rerunning one of my old artsy poses from when mom first started blogging.  I was delighted to show off my artistic ability….mom had nothing to do with this pose my friends.

kali-filteredThere you have moi….filtered.

Have a marvelous Caturday and join in on some fun.
