Shoko Braves the Leash While Kali Becomes Artsy

I looked pleadingly at mom for hours and hours, finally she said…., “Did you want outside today Shoko?”  Well ya!!  Mom got the harness and leash and made me dress like a fool before she would open the door.

First we went to the veggie garden and I watered the plants.  The Peas were drying up.  Mom had let the veggie garden go.                                                                      ashokleash1    After I looked under some bushes sniffed at the pretty flowers, scratched at the fence mom decided she better start freezing the red peppers and proceeded to pick me up….very unceremoniously,  I hithed my best hith to let her know I was walkin’ here and had places to go.  After tying my leash securely on the bistro table leg, off she went to get the red peppers ready to freeze.                                                                aashokcrleash2Here I was stuck on the deck unable to get anywhere.  I sang to mom for a while and then everything got quiet.  Mom came out to see why I was so quiet.                                                                aashokcrleash

I headed away from that contraption and I’m free.  My first stop was the nip, boy I missed it.  I lay on my back and pawed a nip leaf in my mouth.    Off to settle under the flowers next.                                                                        aashokcrflowersMom decided to leave me be as I was enjoying myself. Good idea. an hour later I was exhausted from all this activity and wanted in.

It felt so good to be in my basket, I fell asleep immediately.

    Concats Shoko, that is super leash-work. I have to admit you walk better on the leash than me… maybe we should do our walks together? I like the cat-art… it looks like a photo from under the sea :o)

    Shoko, I don’t understand why you don’t like getting dressed up. I bring my staff one of my lifevests or harnesses depending on where I want to go…. All too often the answer is ‘no’, but sometimes they say yes!
    I, too, am having issues with my staff remembering to water and harvest food, though my purrsonal nip plant is doing very well… One would think that they would be inspired by my example of how to tend the garden. Purrseidon >^.^<

    Shokolino, you had your day, and nip, so you are feeling good after that cat dentist visit. The garden is beautiful, so much flowers to take care, you must be busy. Kali looks like…I don’t know…
    Kosmo,
    a cat in faraway Finland.

    Shoko, M is very impressed with how well you stayed in the garden after the big escape from your harness. I would have wondered off into the neighbor’s yards and explored there, which is what I did once when I escaped.. I had a harness like the one you had and M & D caught me backing right out of it. So that ended my wearing that harness. Now I have one that fastens around my belly very securely. Now that I’m in an apartment, I don’t get outside at all, but since we don’t live in the same house anymore, I never ask to go out either.

        I don’t know bout that but she is certainly more artsy than I am. Besides, “better her than me.” I don’t want to look like something that you’d scrape off the bottom of the ocean. MOL

      Thank you Pixie and Zorro. I think mom will have a new harness up on her Christmas list this year. I was very good. I just wanted to feel the dirt on my paws without mom following me around.

    Shoko I do believe you have a bit of “Houdini” in you escaping from your harness – at least you got to go where YOU wanted to go……I guess you’re feeling perky now after your dental surgery? You look comfy in your basket after coming back inside too…..as for that picture of Kali – all I can say is “EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK”! She looks just a bit like an alien!

    Love, Sammy

      I was a bit of a devil wasn’t I? That harness is so restricting though. MOL Mom followed me everywhere….I didn’t like that. Kali does look like a we’d taken a bad trip on the nip….MOL

    Kali should sue for that art. MOL! She looks funny. Since when do you need a harness when you go out? You’ve always been free to explore. Is she afraid you’ll run away with Cow Kitty?

      Kali looks so funny, we can’t help but laugh. She sure doesn’t look like a queen. Mom is just following what the vet said. Not likely Cow Kitty and I would run away together…..not till he grows up anyway.
