Sunday Selfie at Fort Meezer

Kali and I thought we’d show you what our family was doing today.  We spent most of the morning outside….all of us.                                                                Nice day and hardly any smoke.

Dad was outside getting rid of our old fence with a new one.  Him and the neighbour finally agreed on a fence and split the cost.

 Our new fence…look ma no pathways through the fence.  No introoders can come bouncing through the fence now.

A little feathered friend…ya, not a friend of mine….came for a drink.                                                                                   Come have a seat on the railing. *Shoko rubs paws together.*

I gotta admit this guy is tiny.

You can see the old fence in the background.

                                                                 

These are mom’s volunteer, “Love Lies Bleeding.”  They have red peeking out of the top of their heads.

I’m feeling a tad peckish, let’s go inside.                                                               Ya, this is my new place mat that mom brought me back from Paris.  I’m allowed to eat up on the island cause my food is one Kali shouldn’t have.

Hey, mom whatcha doin?  Are you working on your recipe for Shopping Around The World hosted by Bacon, my bro by another mother?

I don’t think the recipe calls for soups this month but I’ll check.  These are our leeks.  I’m going to put in a green pepper that is turning red.  Just for some colour.  Whatever?  I don’t want it.  I don’t eat green food.  We know what grass does so, no thanks….you and dad enjoy.                                                                   It’s also The Cat On my Head’s Selfie Sunday.  This week Kali has the honour.  Pad on over to The Cat on my Head blog and see the furries that have clicked themselves stupid for the bestest selfie. Click on our hostess’s name and drop in. MOL                                                          What?  I just woke up….lemme see,you want me to take my.. *click*…whoops wasn’t quite ready.  MOL                                                                Have a great day my friends.

      The tiny bird is a hummingbird. We don’t hang a hummingbird feeder anymore because they can be messy and sticky beside that there are lots of kitties looking for prey over here. Funny, I have never shown no interest in hummers. Kali however would catch about 8 during the summer season. She never killed them though and they could be saved.

        You have hummingbirds in Canada?? Thought it would be too cold…I know some of our native moths are the size of hummingbirds..I try not to encourage birds because of the girls, although Lily is the biggest hunter. I don’t think Charlie has ever caught a thing in her life! 😸💕xxx 🐟🐭🐤🐰

    Oooh that fence looks really colourful, but those flowers look even nicer especially with the bird motif MOL. Ooh and your leek looks just like my peep first thing in the morning, 2AM, when I bring a PAL home for supper.!

      MOL Your peep must be a riot…does he leak all over or just around the kitty litter? MOL Mom doesn’t do anything interesting like that. I never think of the hanging baskets and have never seen a hummer.

      Sharing the cost was not to the neighbour’s liking when we said it would be $1,000 each. He hummed and hawed for over 2 months and then hubby found out if the cement was put down on an angle so the water ran off from the fence post, the posts didn’t rot anywhere near as quickly. So he examined them and the posts were put in this way. Then the cost for each became $600….the neighbour liked this. Voila, a new cedar fence.

    Hey ladies! What a grand new fence! Is that a little hummingbird visiting your Mom’s hanging basket of flowers? They are tiny but I bet they are – er – um – tasty. Oooops, did I say that out loud?? Sorry. Anyway, have a serene Sunday girls.

    Hugs, Teddy

      Mom was so fortunate to have the hummer visit. Kali used to catch them but can’t be bothered now. Me, I don’t care for burds. I’d rather have a taste of the nip. MOL

    I absolutely love the new fence. Fences are good safety for kitties AND doggies. That thing makes me feel very secure for you kids. Lucky the stars of bird TV can fly.

    Shoko, both you and Kali had terrific photos today…one wide awake kitty and one snoozy kitty. Your flowers look so pretty. Our yard is parched from all the heat and no rain in weeks. Nice new fence as well. Mom loves seeing that little hummer. No matter what we do, we just can’t seem to get them. Dad has seen one twice this year. Thanks for joining today’s special hop.

    Are those Cow Kitty’s pawrents next door? The fence looks like cedar, very pretty. I understand about the smoke because of all the fires we had in this area last summer. I’ve never experienced anything like that before, and hope not to again. Much of it was deliberately set by sicko’s. Anyone with respiratory problems suffered. Shoko, you are very special to be able to eat off a French food mat!

      Cow Kitty lives on the other side of us. The fence is indeed cedar and we plan to use Thompson’s Waterproofing. The smoke is not bad today and hopefully the firefighters are gaining with the fires.

    You both look great! I am glad the smoke has cleared so you can go outside. Can Cow Kitty still come visit now that the fence is fixed? XO

      Cow Kitty lives on the other side of us. He was able to climb the fence when he was 6 months old. He goes where he pleases. Cow Kitty was in a fight last night. He came over here to mellow out and I patted him. We then went to see Bob Dylan and when I got back, his fur was all in place and he looked well….then he went to his own house.

    How nice that you all got to go outside today. That little hummer is cute. We have some that come by here…our feeder is right outside the kitchen window and they will fly and stare in the window at us.

      They can be very rude! Imagine starring at you through the window. We found the syrup attracted ants and mom has a phobia about ants so the hummers have to eat or drink the million bell petunias.

    What a beautiful fence – we just love it. We wish our neighbors would split the cost but you know how that would go here – snorts with piggy laughter. But then again, we should start charging this neighbor admission for his chickens/roosters coming into *my* backyard. Just saying – snorts. Hope ya’ll are doing well. We miss you. XOXO – Bacon

      Mom and dad are glad the new fence is going in as the other one was pretty disgusting. Us cats wouldn’t walk on the top of it anymore…far too dangerous. You should hit your neighbour up for some eggs, after all they are eating your bugs. MOL

      Shoko…we always miss chatting with our friends.

        This is true about our neighbor. AND we do feed them. Not on purpose of course. We throw nuts/bread in the back for our squirrel friends. This morning in the backyard, it was like looking at a Disney movie with all of the anipals out there – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    The Hubby swears that he saw a hummingbird in our garden a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve not seen one…wish I could! We don’t do much for the birds in our yard either, because Patty O’Malley and Sweetie may ‘enjoy’ that a little too much. We talk about putting up a fence; The Hubby wants wood and I kind of like the old-fashioned chain linky stuff. When we go out and see old-timey houses with metal fences and gates…now, that’s what I want!

      Our neighbour wanted a chain link fence because they are cheaper but it wouldn’t match the other 2 fences. I have no idea how chain link fences last but if we had it on the other 2 sides I’d agree.

    Great selfies, ladies! We hope Kali is feeling better. Since Bear is the only one to jump on the kitchen counter, we’ve started using that as an easy way for him to get his wet food treat without feeling stressed by Ellie. Not ideal … but it works!

      They are funny about the other kitty. Shoko gets jealous every once in awhile and hits Kali’s paw…..yet if Kali has a problem….Shoko comes in and wakes me up to go to Kali. Kali is doing ok…no barf nor runny stool today and she ate like she was stocking up for a marathon so I keep my fingers crossed.
