I have been married for like AGES and AGES according to Shoko. A whole 45 years. Shoko and Kali are my only young'uns. We have lived in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada for 34 years. Gardening is my passion and also Shoko's passion. Kali is more of the thinker and quieter than Shoko. These posts are excerpts of Shoko's and Kali's interactions with their daily activities and surroundings.
Shoko get away from the prayer plant. Mom doesn’t want teeth marks in her new plant. Just examining it for bugs. Some of these bugs can be pretty small and annoying. Like yourself, perhaps? That’s not funny Kali…..I’m being helpful. That’s true Shoko and I’m sorry for my lack of grace. I must’ve been in your company too long.
You know Kali, this Prayer Plant needs to be repotted….like now! It’s very root bound. How can I get mom’s attention so she’ll repot this Prayer plant.
Is this close enough to the edge of the counter, Kali? I think that did it Shoko, she’s getting the dirt and a new pot.
Mom found a baby plant in the Prayer plant and divided it from the big Prayer plant. Now they each have a new home.
Mondays are McGuffy’s Reader‘s day for spreading some positive thoughts into our environment.
Our positive thought involves the Prayer plant.
My positive attitude that the prayer plant needed repotting led to mom seeing that the prayer plant did indeed need repotting and her finding a baby plant as a positive outcome.
Talk with a stranger as you walk down the street. You may be the first to speak to him all day.
C’mon mom let’s go. Do you have to put that big boot on? You look odd but as long as you can get to the Lane. Mmmm…OK.
All right…we’re off in a cloud of nip and bones!
Yuck…it’s all yellow and bare out here. Maybe there’s a mouse about.
Here mewssseeeyyy…come play with me. We’ll have fun.
Guess they don’t believe me. I can hear little pawsteps running away.
I’m coming mom…there are so many prey smells around.
Time to go home? OK, let’s hit the dirt and come again tomorrow.
That was Saturday, my friends. Sunday arrived with a surprise.
Snow!! Oh, no….hope it disappears.
My bowl of water was very cold. Fortunately, it’s The Cat On My Head’s selfie Sunday so I took the picture mom had me shoot yesterday and blended it in with all the other furries pictures. Come see it at The Cat On My Head’s blog. Simply click on the name and be swept along with the tide.
1. Keep calm and …..SMILE. THEY’LL NEVER KNOW YOU ENJOYED THEIR FISH BEFORE THEM. .
2. WINTER….. disappoints me. IT IS SO COLD THAT I HAVE TO STAY INSIDE UNTIL THE AFTERNOON WHEN THE SUN MAY COME OUT. NO MORE RUNNING OUT IN THE MORNING TO GO TINKLES. THE GROUND IS FROZEN AND THE TEMPERATURE FREEZES ONE’S TINKLE. BRRR… YOU SEE WE ARE WALKING OUTSIDE AIMLESSLY TO KEEP THE COLD AWAY.
3. OREGANO….. is my ….DOWNFALL. I LOVE OREGANO AND TRY MOM’S IN THE GARDEN EVERY YEAR.Yes, oregano is a perennial.
4. In retrospect, ….I WAS A GOOD KITTY MOST OF MY LIFE SO I CAN LET MY fURS DOWN OCCASIONALLY AND BE A LITTLE BIT HELTER SKELTER.
MOL…be good this weekend my friends and we’ll see you on the flip-flop.
What a quiet day it is today. It’s been raining and cool….quite cool. So I packed up my straw and left for my tent without a roof. Now, you may be asking yourself…,”What does Shoko need a straw for?” Well, there are the obvious benefits of straw play. A chew and a bat teaches the straw not to run from me again. There is one not so obvious use for a straw. I suck up some nip and wash it down with tuna juice…..man what a kick! MOL
However, as a newbie I tried shoving the straw up my nose and snorting the nip into my nose. A terrible idea….I was plugged solid for an hour. Kali had to help me get the nip outta my nose and the straw….what a mess. You know I didn’t get any kick just little bits of nip outta my nose every time I mewed. I was annoyed.
A mini lesson for those tempted to shove a straw up their nose and partake of the nip. Don’t bother…the mess is not worth it.
I’m not a tart Shoko!!I’m a pristine lady. You mean, * a lady of the evening.* No….not anymore….I don’t make it much past 8pm. Then it’s time for the TV and a snooze.It is time for Athena’s Caturday art and I am going to use Lunapic but something just a little different. Go see Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and see what kind of expressions are on the faces of your friends as they pose for you.
Mom did the Landscape Art and then for effect she put me in a Photo Booth and finally she put a border on the picture. All I can say is….you gave me a blue beard! MOL…well, it’s Miss Bluebeard herself….Matey, you are a sight for sore eyes.
Have a great Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend and for those of you not in Canada…it’s turkey time here…..care to visit?
It’s FryDay! That means a long weekend here as it’s Thanksgiving on Monday. Cranberry Nip Tea
We get turkey and extra treats. Mom and dad are going out for Thanksgiving this year. Which means a block party for the furries here. I must plan who I really want here and who I won’t tolerate busting into our frolic time.
