Those Fantabulous Fun Filled Fill Ins on Feline Friday

Whoa, here it is Friday already.  Oh my it’s Friday the 13th!  Hope you aren’t superstitious.  Let’s see what happens today and then we’ll let you know if we’re dreading the next Friday the 13th.  That’s right Budd….chase any human dude/dudette away that tries to walk in your path.  We don’t want to tempt fate.  I know we’re not black Shoko but you have a black face. mol

 

This is Feline Friday at Comedy Plus so we will join them first.  Click on their name or the Feline Friday badge.

Now, onto The Fill Ins. The first 2 sentences were provided by Ellen of 15 and Meowing and the last 2 are the work of Ellen’s partner in crime, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs.

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD……GRAND GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM…….MAROON

1.GETTING SHOKO’S GIFT….stresses me this time of year.   SHE DID LIKE MY FURRY MOUSE FROM LAST YEAR.  I JUST FIGURE SHE’LL BE PICKY BUT SHE ISN’T.  SHE SEEMS TO LIKE THE EFFORT I MAKE.                                                                 

2. My favorite holiday film is …..A CHRISTMAS CAROL.  IT SHOWS ALL HUMANS ARE GOOD AT THEIR CORE BUT CIRCUMSTANCES SOMETIMES MAKE THEM NOT SO NICE.                                                                                           

3. If you ask me,….BRIGHT DECORATIONS AND HAPPY BEINGS.…. makes this season merry and bright.

4. MY SPECIAL ORNAMENTS OVER MANY YEARS…. bring back memories.                                                                                       

Kali never played much, she was much more consumed with her looks, except with this Santa. Every year she would glom onto it as soon as her toy was taken out of storage. These are memories that stay with me whenever her toy comes out and joins us for Christmas as are other keepsakes.

 

Shoko is setting up for the Meezer Proverbs,

                                                            “A wise meeser remembers her triumphs and reminds her housemates how talented she is almost daily.  A good toot of one’s own horn never hurts the status quo.

Happy Tyebe Tuesday

We are joining Comedy Plus and Happy Tuesday.

Come join us and visit with some purrty special furries. Click on the name or badge…..both will send you flying. MOL

No Budd.  There will be no more pictures of you in a box sleeping.  You’re getting boring.  You have your eyes open and look with it or our friends will think you’re sick.  Shoko’s even up and about more than you, Budd.                                                                 

How about helping with the tree, Budd. Mom has started dressing it. She needs my help though.

The tree is pretty solid from down here.

I must stretch and get that babble.

There…. the lights are tucked in.

Sure need to do more work here.

That’ll be for tomorrow.  How do you like it so far Budd?

It’s starting to look festive, Tyebe.

TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
BUDD…… GOD AWFUL GREEN

Artsy Caturday ansd Selfie Sunday.

Shoko and Budd it’s Saturday and that means one of us can pose for Athena the Cat Goddess and Wise Kitty’s Saturday Art work. Athena is so clever and pretty.  She’s a knockout and doesn’t seem to notice how beautiful she is.  Who has posed just right for an artsy photo?  You do look good, Budd.  Where did you find the box.  We got gifts from the coast?  Wow, lucky us.  Let’s see your picture, Budd.  Ok I’ll save it for Sunday Selfies.                                                                               

I used mom’s knee walker to get close to the tree and then reached out for a pawful of tree. MOL

        I look so pretty.  Mom used Floating….about 70% i Lunapic.

Come and view your friends posing at Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog Click on the name or the badge.  I taught mom how to make the badge hold the name.  MomGingersap,  would not have a clue without our guidance.  Sssshhhh….don’t tell her though.                                                                        Sunday is Selfie Sunday with my guy’s blog….The Cat On My HeadCooperMurphy is my Gingersnap….a good  looking mancat and a fun guy.  You want to see his picture?  I have it here somewhere…..

This is CooperMurphy or my Gingersnap. His face is so expressive. I’m floating for him. Mom is pretty strict. I can see him but only at Cat Scouts till I’m 2 years old.

Anyway onwards and upwards. Budd is posing and doing the selfie for The Cat On My Head blog who is sponsoring this fine tradition. Simply click the badge or the name and float on over for a visit.                                                                   

Budd is pretending to be sleeping but he isn’t and “click.”

Do you notice that Budd is loosing weight? It is kinda hard to tell as he is usually sleeping or lolling about. Mom says she thinks he is. We must do a before and after picture.

Budd and Tyebe on Selfie Sunday

Budd let’s do Selfie Sunday together.  Why, Tyebe?  Cause then we can show how well we get along together.  Is Shoko going to pop over too?  Naw, she’s busy with her Chalk. rahs.  What are chalk-rahs?  I really don’t know Budd but I gather you get a piece of chalk…..red is the best.  Then you make a large dot on your forehead, belly button area and wherever else you need chalk. You only can have 9 of them.  Then you chant rah, rah over and over.  Doing this will make you feel better and straighten up the chalk-rahs. 

I’ll set the camera up and we can pose.  Ya ready Budd?  Ready Tyebe.

            Budd. hope you’re shedding all over dad’s black coat. Sure enough Tyebe. It’s a work in progress.

 

The Cat on my Head is sponsoring the blog hop again today so come out and pop over for a visit.  Better yet….pose for a selfie yourselves and show us so we can get a giggle.  mol  Click on the blog name or badge and be airborne until you plop down at their place.                                                                                           
Over to you Shoko for the Wisdom of the week from a thoughtful meezer.

“A kitten is a furry rosebud in the garden of life Unless it’s awake. Then…..run away quickly before the rosebud becomes attached to your butt.”

You may remember my niece…well, she’s mom’s niece but she has come through meningitis and sepsis.  Tattered but here and ready to start rehab, shortly.                                                                                  

Tyebe Tuesday

Let me in Budd.  I have no thumbs, Tyebe. I couldn’t let you in if I tried.   Besides, I can’t jump up that high.  Get dad then.  No!  He’s in the basement.

I’ll freeze you with my ice cold blue eyes, then. Not likely you white cyclone. Will too! Get back here Budd and let me heat you.

Geez, Budd’s in a cantankerous mood today. Some people’s kits, really. Oh look Budd found our snake. Let me have it Budd….well, ok Tyebe.

I got the sucker!

Budd do you want the snake? Yes, I do Tyebe!

Over to you Budd….knock him dead….please, Shoko hates snakes.

We are joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday. Please pop over and visit with them.

Sunday Selfie starring Budd

My heaven’s it’s cold outside.  I tried to keep my ears warm with dad’s Rudolph toque….oh alright Red Nose toque.  I like to personalize the reindeer and Rudy is my favourite.                                                                     
A wee rest and I’ll be up and at em’.

 

Tyebe you can’t have my box.  It’s my bed.  Aww…I’ll get out of it right away.  I just want to try the box.  No way. the last time you said that, you stayed in the box till dad served dinner!                                                           
Here comes mom, Tyebe. She’s making her way down the hall.                                                               

Go sit in front of her walker and clean your toes.  You might be able to hitch a ride.

I am sending this picture into The Cat On My Head as I managed this selfie before Tyebe was even in the hall.  Pop on over for a visit with all the Blues cats.  They have some nip in the back room, I hear.                                                               

Last time I waited in front of mom’s walker, she hit me in the butt with the wheels.  I was too involved with my manicure and didn’t see her coming.    Do you think she’s getting faster with her UBER for furries?  Probably not….just seems she can really move when she has a target to aim at. ML                  

“When all is quiet with your house mate, stare down the hall wide eyed as if an ax murder is in the hall.  This scene will scare the cwap outta your house mate and she will shakily try to see behind you.  That’s your cue to yawn and walk away.”  Great chuckles my friends.

Tyebe Tuesday in November

Hey Budd what’re you doing?  Ok. stay in the box.  I’m watching dad clean the fountain again.  You know, I could do this myself.

Why does he put the water in this jug?  It must do something special.  I wonder if there’s nip in it?  Oh my, I can’t lift the fountain, how would I pick it up?  Need any help getting some nip juice, dad?  No!  Well, ok….I’ll let you handle it, dad.

Budd, I was no help.  *sigh*  I couldn’t pick up the fountain or even the nip jug.  I’ll bet you told dad if the water was cold enough though, Tyebe.  I did, Budd and I told dad the water was very clean and no soap suds.                                                          You did a great job then, Tyebe.  I’m sure dad appreciated it.

I need some help at what else I can do for dad.

TYEBE…..POWDER BLUE
