Kali’s View of Her World

For those of you that have not noticed my new header and for those of you that thought, “Egads, that’s a dark and dingy picture”.  Well here’s the scoop.  This is a picture of the Ice Castle in Dr. Zhivago.  The superb actor, Omar Shariff passed away two weeks ago and this is our way of honouring him.

 

I’m looking after the post today.  Yes, Shoko let her big sis take charge for a change.  Shoko is busy patrolling around the perimeter of the property….on the fence.  I don’t know what she’ll do if she spots trouble…bravery is not her thing.  She sees herself as this meezer:                                                          Everybody else see’s her this way:

I have been having problems getting on and off the bed.  The worst part of it was jumping onto the floor after a nice snooze.  My elbow and paws have arthritis.  I find the arthritis meds too hard on my stomach and I can’t hold them down.  Mom asked dad if he could make something that could help me out.  Shoko suggested a trampoline to dad.  She said it would be easy on my paws cause the rubber would give.  Mom and dad didn’t have to worry, she would watch me as I got off the bed.  Actually, she said it would be a hoot watching me go up to the ceiling and down again.

Dad didn’t like this idea and thought it was very unsafe.  Dad decided to make stairs for me.  They are so cool!  Just look at these stairs.

Here I am modelling the stairs…I think they look better with me on them.

Oh mom!  This is a horrible picture!  I look all butt and hips.  Please my friends disregard this pic…..I’m not this fat looking.  I know I’ve gained a wee bit but..                                                                      Here I sit on the top stair…dad made it big enough for me to sit and relax or scratch at the carpeting.  I’m not fond of the type of carpeting on the condo….scratch wise that is but I really like the carpet dad put on the stairs.

      CK, you are too nice. The stairs were badly needed and I feel a lot better now when I just walk up the stairs. The header is dark but I guess mom just wanted to say, ” This was a wonderful movie and you’ll never see the splendid interactions like this again.”

      Kitty kisses,

      Kali

    Wow, stairs and a scratching pad in one. You have a smart Dad, Kali. I have stairs up to the bed that my peeps brother and his friend made me. Mom found a desk in someone’s driveway that had a “free to haul away” sign on it. Dad met her there with the truck, they took it home, and the guys took it apart and made my stairs with it.
    I sure hope you find some help with your arthritis soon. Have you tried Dasuquin for cats. Check it out on Amazon.com. The one for dogs has helped my back legs be normal again.

      You guys got a real deal with the desk. Those are fun savings. My problem is my tummy…I can’t hold the arthritis meds I have now. They are Cosequin for cats. Mom is not sure if she wants to send away for something I might not be able to tolerate, Thanks for the info though.

      Kitty kisses,

      A step stool is kinda cool too, Nellie. It sure would help with the first step. I think the stairs would help you more though…if we were closer you could borrow mine or dad could make you some. He got first class birch for the price of 2nd class plywood. Ya, for dad…wheeler dealer.

    that was a brilliant idea to help you with that stairs… I liked the idea with the trampoline too… butt I’m a little afraid your could land on the ceiling that way :o) it’s great that you have this header for Omar, he always is Dr. Zhivago for me. And to watch the movie, is one of our christmas rituals. Even when we saw it 87 times, it’s still great and the soundtrack is still touching and brings tears to our eyes…

      Woohoo…mom just brushed me and I walked up the stairs and back down again. Mom knows I walk both ways now. I only walked up the stairs for a quite a while but not now. You are so right my Weim friend…Omar is the One and ONLY Dr. Zhivago to us too. We’ve seen the film 87,000 times and still love it.

      Hi Sasha and Bindi! So good to hear from my meezer friends. Thank you ladies…I begin to wonder if I’m getting fat and just don’t notice it until someone takes a picture and I’m horrified! The stairs make getting on the bed so much easier….at least my arthritis doesn’t flare anymore when I get on the bed.

      Kitty Kisses,

    Brilliant stairs your Dad made for you Kali! My Mom has been after my Dad to make some for me so I can get on their bed again – I haven’t been up there unless my Mom PUTS me up there for several years now thanks to my crummy arthritis! Thanks for inspiring my Dad – Mom showed him the photo of YOUR stairs!

    Hugs, sammy

      Fantastic Sammy! I do hope your dad builds the wee stairs for you. It gives us more freedom. I used to have to wait until mom put her walker in front of the bed. Even then it was a great jump to get on the walker. Now I can walk up on the bed whenever I feel like it. The carpet is a great scratch when I reach the top.

      Kitty kisses,

      Kali

    Oh Double WOW’s. I had not heard about Omar Shariff. How very sad. Mom/dad said they remember watching his movies. Then they got this glossy look in their eyes – I’m not sure what that was about – snorts. And your stairs – your dad is a rock star my friends! They are awesome. Way to go!! XOXO – Bacon

      Mom, Kali and I have watched Omar Shariff acting, many times…usually in Dr. Zhivago. Mom watches that movie a lot. Last Christmas dad got her a dvd of Dr. Zhivago. Now she doesn’t have to wait for the show to come on cable.
      Dad did an excellent job but I won’t walk down them yet. If feels strange.

      Kitty kisses,

    OMC Hims alweady finished? Yous daddy is Pawsum wiff a capital P Kali. Those steps look amazin’ and weez so glad yous like ’em. Our stairs have fur sure been a big help fur sissy. And me luvs ’em too. Sowry yous not feelin’ so good and dat yous can’t take da medicine. It makes most kitties upset in da tummy. Mommy sez she has to give Lexi sum of da slippery elm bark and then 20 – 30 minutes afur a meal she gives her da medicine. Most of da time she keeps it down. Like you, she used to fwo ’em up every time. Weez sendin’ purrayers. And don’t worry, weez fink yous look bootyful.

      You two are so nice Dezi and Lexi. It’s a bummer when we through up stuff. isn’t it Lexi. It tastes awful. Dad was very good about the stairs and got right to work when mom told him what she wanted and why. He is very good to us even though he doesn’t talk much. I’m never sure of peeps that don’t talk like mom.

    Kali, we think those stairs work way better than a trampoline…but they’re not as fun! With the cat that came before us, the mom bought a ramp-type thing for him to get up on the bed.

    I think the ramps are ducky but mom says I’m still a fairly young cat and must maintain some muscle tone so she wants me to jump at least stair lengths. Psst! I still like the idea of the ramp better.
