Saturday Secrets and Artsy Fartsy Day

Gee it’s good to see you. It’s so quiet without Shoko telling us what she thinks of life in general. The last I heard Shoko was having a lot of fun with all her Cat Scout friends and especially Einstein. I guess Shoko and I are growing closer.

I did tell you that an unknown shenanigan of Shoko’s would be revealed. Ok. Shoko was a very happy kitten and loved everything and everybody. Not exactly the ideal attitude to deal with strangers. She was always pleasant to be around even if she(even then) talked your ear off. She was taken to the vet to get spayed early in the morning and was out about 2pm. When mom picked her up, Shoko was delighted to see her and was doing her happy dance. The vet proceeded to tell mom Shoko would probably be tired and wouldn’t want much to eat. So mom brought Shoks home and she was swinging off the cat pole and chasing me around the house…but first she loaded up on the hypoallergenic food. So much for keeping her calm and not letting her jump. You ever tried to stop one of us from jumping when we’ve made up our mind to jump? Pretty well an impossible task!

Mom opened the sliding glass door to go out for a minute and out ran Shoko who saw an old Siamese cat in the garden. Shoko’s eyes got big and her tail shot straight up. Mom and I both called to her….get away from him. Shoko was far to delighted to listen. As she ran up to the old cat he reached out with claws shining and batted her on the head and then bit her tail! The miserable son of a stray. Shoko was very upset…not just hurt but her feelings were hurt. Once she settled down mom took a good look and decided to take Shoko back to the vets. When the two of them came home…Shoko’s tail was dragging and she had a small hose at the base of her tail. She had got an anti-biotic shot just in case that old guy was carrying any disease.

Mom watched for that ole Siamese and chased him away as soon as she saw him. Shoko never greeted anyone like that again…except mom when she’s been away for days. This was a very hard lesson for Shoko but she learned it well.

Now, for our Artsy Fartsy Caterday with Athena and Marie. I have been working on a picture of self.

    Wow, your are work is stunning. That was an interesting story about Shoko. I miss that guy. We were in cat scouts together until M made me get out cuz she couldn’t keep up with everything. Sometimes she thinks maybe she’ll let me back in again, but I’ll believe it when I see it happen.

      Thanks for the compliment Mario. I know Shoko misses you too my friend, she would love to see you at cat scouts…you could pop in and say hi to the ThunderCats….Shoko’d get so excited she may tinkle.

      Kitty kisses,

    Well Kali you’re right – Shoko had a ton of fun yesterday at the Scouts event with her new guy Einstein. They were all over the place skiing and having fun. The whole thing was great! The story about her having an “encounter” with an old Siamese on the day of her surgery was an example of a lesson learned the hard way. It pays to be cautious – friendly but cautious! Ouch!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Shoko is home now and we all have heard how terrific and thoughtful Einstein had been and how much fun she had. She’s pretty tired and rather stiff today. She’s not used to all the activity anymore. She needs to be able to get out and jump up on the fence a few times. Actually Sammy a lesson taught the hard way is a lesson that is not forgotton.

      Kitty kisses,
      Kali

      Ski lessons eh? That was so nice of him. We tried out the bunny slope but we both seemed pretty good at skiing so we went for it. The snow angel I made was pathetic but it was fun. You and Andy looked like you you were having balls of fun too.

      It was 5 and a half years ago when Shoks was bit…she’s well over it Cousin Darth. She remembered the lesson very well though. She is suspicious of NEW now…that incident could be why she is so skittish around anything new. Shows you what happens in kittenhood stays for the rest of your life. Thanks for saying my pic looks dreamy Dharth…you are so kind Cuz.

      Kitty kisses,

      Big boys can cry anytime they get choked up! It’s better out than in Dharth. You can always think of what a wonderful papaw you have….he stayed with you when there was no one else. Mighty good papaw if you ask me. It brings to mind the song mom sings, “Papaw was a rolling stone…wherever he hung his hat was his home….” Some kitty guys are like that. Shoko’s dad was like that…she never met her dad. My sweet cousin…you are so thoughtful and kind…I could just lick you into a corner…hehe

      Kitty kisses,

    Oh my I am glad Shoko was ok after that lesson. We are all insiders so do not see outside cats but now and then one comes close enough to send some stink under the door and we start patrolling to keep Dad safe. I mean what if some strange cat came in here. Goodness

      Shoko is great Timmy but bone tired. don’t thin I’ve seen her so wiped out. It certainly is quiet around here…hehe Living life on the inside is the way I live too. Shoko is basically an indoor cat in the winter, She sticks pretty close to mom when they go out. I only go out when mom is with me…I feel safe that way. Once in a while a cat will tinkle on the deck and we get upset…the nerve of some kitties really!

      Kitty kisses,
      Kali
