Happy 11th Gotcha Day Shoko

You are getting on Shoks.  Happy Gotcha Day sis.  Budd and I decided to celebrate your special day with a Teaparty.  I know you love tea parties.  This time I made the tea.  No weak nip tea for us we’ll celebrate with the good stuff from the garden.                                                         

Tyebe did you wake the Elf on the Shelf for my Gotcha Day? No, he’s a pest. Dang tootin’. I found him surfing in the ice nip tea. He will have to go.

Einey you look so relaxed….let’s go over by the unflowering lilac and chatter. Cooper Murphy you look awesome. Grab some goodies by the bbq. Dad did up some shrimp on the barbie…..fill your booties.


Yummy! Happy Gotcha Day, Shoko.                                     

Hey, Cooper Murphy lets chase The Elf on the Shelf around the backyard. We’ll see if we can corner him.

Shoko, I don’t mean to scare you.  I like you very much and want to play with you.  Concats on your 11th Gotcha Day sis.                                                  

Here’s a breathtakingly gorgeous card Shoko got from Dalton, Pippo and Benji.                                                 

Thank you so much.  I never looked better. mol

Please, dig in and there are pitchers of iced nip tea…..have lots, feel good and take some home for later.

Thankful Thursdaywith Shoko

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday.  We have much to be thankful for these days. Pounce on Brian’s Thankful Thursday badge and click on the site given.   We at the Canadian Cats send the Power of the Paw and healing purrs to Brians dad.
We are getting our favourite meals from dad. He gives us snacks on a schedule so every 1pm and 9pm we chow down with special goodies.

The weather is warm and lazy. So we can just sleep anywhere and be happy, as evidenced by Tyebe.                                                                     

The kitchen is about half finished so we can fish around for treats.

Mom is getting about a little but not out of the house yet. She is still getting IV Therapy of antibiotics at home so the pain is still in the bone. She is in pretty good spirits considering.

I like to visit with mom and tell her about the younguns and how horrible they can be.

If you don’t mind this is a private conversation just between mom and me!

Have a thankful and memorable Thursday.

What do you call a cat in a station wagon?

A car-pet.

Tyebe Tuesday

First of all, we must thank Ann of Zoolatry very much for the beautiful and lifelike summer photo of the fur family.  We love the header, Ann.

 

We were out kicking our paws around in the backyard today. I chased Budd who in turn chased me until I collapsed on the deck.  Budd was laying over further.                                                 

Shoko was watching us and shaking her head.  Until we turned around and chased the whiskers off her. mol            

She’d gone and rolled in the nip….so she was feeling no pain.

I was pooped after this chase.                                       

       NAP ATTACK! 

Here is a picture of Shoko and I at the celebration of Birthdays and Gotcha Days at Cat Scouts. It is Shoko’s 11th Gotcha Day on the 15th. 
Don’t we look fetching and beguiling.  Shoko is wearing Phoebe’s Travelling Bikini from 2015. Phobe is now an angel with Kali but she had a wonderful home at 15 and Meowing. 
We are also joining up with Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday.  Click on the picture for Happy Tuesday and visit your friends.  Their site addresses are all printed up for you.                 
Have a super Tuesday friends.

Caturday Art with….um…..BUDD

Tyebe are you hiding behind the ferns……well get outta there girl. 
I’ll chase you around the backyard, cause I’m the monster from the lane.  ARRRGGGHH!                                                             He’ll never find her in the ferns.  She went in the house about an hour ago.  Budd fell asleep in the garden and lost track of her. mol  Younguns!                                                                      I think Budd’s bellowing for me but I’m tired so I don’t give a whisker what he wants.
Where is that girl.  Ohhhh the bed looks inviting.  This is the place for my art.

 

This is a great place for a mid-afternoon nappy pooh.
   Mom used Lunapic Illusion at 53% for this effect.  It’s bold but I do stand out.
Come see us at Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.  Better yet jump in and join us with your art of the day.

Friday in the Garden

It’s Friday and our seeds are starting to sprout.  Now, dad planted these little green beauties.  Mom is taking a sabbatical in her room and didn’t offer any advice.  This is very unusual as mom has an opinion on just about everything.

We explained to dad that carrots were small and ever so tiny so not too many in one spot.  Let’s see how he did.

The carrots sure are teeny.  A soaker hose is being used for irrigation this year cause when everything grows they spread out.  Then there is no space to water except the tops of plants.

The beets look quite a bit better.
I’ll take it from here Shoks.  Dad put in this barrel for watering last year but I never have seen anyone use it.  It makes a great perch for me to survey the nip patch though.

Out in Kali’s garden are the poppies and bleeding hearts.  I hide in them and Budd tries to find me.  They smell better than a nip appie.                                                               

Have a fun weekend and enjoy your sun patch.
