About The Canadian Cats

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.

Fort Meezer’s Hartsy Artsy Caturday.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

The weekend again…they sure come fast.  That’s cause we don’t work Shoko.  I do too work…who do you think is keeping the garden up?  It’s not the Tooth Fairy.  It’s me…think of all the tending I do and then come in and collapse.  Naturally mom wants to play cause she’s been in the house puttering about or playing  with the plants outside but not me….I have been slugging it out giving my all to make sure the veggies are coming ahead.                                                                Notice, I’m losing weight from all this running about excavating and spreading fertilizer.

Goings on in the Lane are about the same.  The mud puddles are gone.  Replaced with dust.                                                              Cow Kitty is still pressing his luck and I’m still giving him meowing hell-o.

It’s Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s artsy Caturday.  Unfortunately Athena has computer problems and will not be hosting the Artsy Fartsy pictures this week but here’s our offering anyway.

Seems Athena fixed her puter problems and the Artsy Caturday photo line up is on again.  Geesh!  That didn’t take long to fix.                                                         

Here is our attempt for this week.                                                                     Mom applied an ice border and then in Art she applied abstract.  There I am!!

Have a great Caturday.                                                                      

Fill Her In I say But Make It Friendly Like

 

You got the shovel Kali?  What for Shoko?  Well, we gotta dig a hole to get mom into…..this is going to take a while.  What are you doing with that trowel…we need real shovels that can dig lotsa dirt at one time.  We’ll be digging from now till winter with a trowel.  I don’t like this Shoko….we’ll never get mom to go sit in a hole…..while we throw dirt at her.  Then she’s going to be annoyed and we won’t see treats for some time to come.  Hmm…you got a point ghosty sister of mine.  Let’s just forget it till we have a better plan.                                                                      

Another Fryday with another Fill-In from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.  These two gals think up two sentences each for us to fill in.  The first two are from 15 and Meowing and the last two are from McGuffy’s Reader.  Pretty clever, eh?

I made a fort between the pillows in bed….I’m comfy how bout you?  

1. A recurring dream I have is….. THAT BUDDY VISITS ON A BEAUTIFUL HORSE AND WE GO RIDING IN THE BACK LANE.  OH MY I’M GETTING EXCITED….                                                                    He is gorgeous! Buddy is from  Tomcat Commentary by Tim  Look at those basket eyes…hehehe….I love em so much I could rip some of his furs out to take to my basket and dream of him I.  On second thought we don’t need the horse.  We’d probably use our claws to get up on the horse and the horse would bolt….leaving us on our heads on the ground. MOL

2. Turn…..HYPOALLERGENIC WET FOOD….. into …..DELI ROAST TURKEY….. AND I’D BE A HAPPY CAMPER.                                                                Mom does her best to get me to eat and sometimes I’m absolutely fascinated by the lengths she’ll go to and I absent- mindedly eat the slop.

My turn Kali….I must express myself before I burst. MOL

3. CAPPY-TAN….. is driving me crazy!  He waits outside our door for one of us to come outside,  He even sings to us.  Myself, I think he’s not neutered and is ready to get his MEW off.                                                                          

4. Lately, I have been….HAPPY TO STAY AROUND THE BACKYARD AND INVESTIGATE BUGS IN THE GARDEN……  a stroll is wonderful when the weather is beautiful and warm but when the wind’s howling, the backyard with the six foot fence is the place to play.

                                                                  There you have it my friends, our opinions on today’s fill-ins.

Strictly the views of the occupants of Fort Meezer.

The First Full Day Of Summer Starts Today

Remember my veggie garden when Nellie and I planted it…you too mom!                                                                        After everything was planted it looked like this:                                                                            You can’t even see the hills mom made.

Today the garden is slowly coming along.  It’s been cold and windy here.

This picture has Shoko playing Peek a Boo in the brussel Sprouts.  This was 2 weeks after everything was planted.  Not much change as the brussel Sprouts, corn and cauliflower were transplants.  The potatoes are coming up though.                                                                    

Almost a month later this is the veggie garden.

The only thing that seems to be doing awesome is the potatoes.  We need some heat or everything will remain small.

Wishing for some heat to come our way.                                                                     

Father’s Day Selfie

 

Where’s dad…it’s his day.  What did you get him Shoko?  Were we suppose to get him something?  He doesn’t like chewing on your mouse or a straw.  He just drinks through the straw…he looks like a dork when he does that.  I guess his mom never showed him how to play with it.                                                                    This mouse moves when I hit his bum.  MOL

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                   Does it look like you should sip at a drink with this…I don’t think so.

Mom says she will make dad a special supper so we don’t have to share our toys.  Woo hoo, we’re off the hook.

This is also Selfie day at The Cat On My Head blog.                                                                Click on the blog host name and visit your lovely friends acting their best for the selfie.                                                                        I had to set the timer on the selfie for this one.  I did fall sound asleep.

Hope everyone has a special Father’s Day.  If you have no father…..celebrate anyway.  Thank your friends for being there for you and have a special time playing.                                                                         

 

 

                                                                

Caturday is Arty and Farty Bloopers Day

MOL… It’s Artsy Saturday and what a lovely weekend it is.  Time to have fun in the sun.  First we just must show you the bloopers from the modeling of Crotchety Cougars.  It is also Athena Cat Goddess  Wise Kitty’s artsy day.  Simply click on the blog host’s name and go see your friends hamming it up….MOL                                                              After we finish showing you the bloopers, I will choose one picture for the artsy effects….does this sound good?  Great, let’s start with some bloopers. 

Get away, I’m not putting that hat on!                                                                            Geez…you put it on and I’ll take your picture. MOL 

Here, here….I’m trying to look cool and you’re making me look frantic!                                                                  Are you trying to choke me?  Animal abuse, animal abuse!!

  Yes, the hat fits.                                                                                 See my crooked grin…it’s a Mona Kali smile!

What?  I look like Frank Sinatra’s cat!  I don’t want to look like his cat.  This is disgusting mom.                                                                Pass the treats….I need strength to see me through.  Mmmm…they are tasty.

   How about a side angle.  This is my best side.                                                           Don’t be so picky mom….I look good.  Right, I didn’t see your arm there.  Well, take it away.  Sheesh!

Is that a slice of deli ham on the floor?  It looks yummy.                                                                               How much longer, mom?  Oh nothing…I just have to use the kit lit.  I wonder what peeps mean by, “Not long.”

    Is that a cup of Catnip Tea on the floor?  I’m so thirsty.  I’ve been posing for 87 hours without a break.                                                                            The tea’s gone and so is the deli meat!!  I’m flippin’ out here, seeing things that aren’t there…….let me go.

                                                                        Thank the loons the picture taking is finished.

Here is our offering for Athena’s Artsy Caturday.                                                                  Mom used her favourite photo editor, Lunapic.  She chose the art effect *Tatoo*.                                                                                   Make the most of your Caturday.

Friday’s Fun Fill-Ins with Kali

 

Today is Friday Fill-Ins by Ellen from 15 and Meowing blog and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader blog.                                                                                         1. I challenge everyone to…..REMEMBER HOW COLD THEY WERE IN THE WINTER….. this week.  Then when it rains or you need a windbreaker to go outside, you’ll realize just how warm you really are.                                                                              2. I regret disposing of …..MY SANTA CLAUS DOLL.  Actually mom put it away a  year and a half ago  and she has never found it.                                                                     

3. I have a difficult time admitting …..I AM A TAD FULL OF MYSELF.                                                                       

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be……FLYING.  Then Shoko could jump on my back and we could go visit our friends in Blogville.  No planning just jump on my back and way we go.

     No pictures of me flying Shoko down to Atlanta to visit with Bacon as I can’t fly.                                                                     But I can dream about it. MOL

Have a terrific Day my friends. 

 

A Surprise Visitor With a First Class Idea

KALI…..ORANGE
PHOEBE….. Green

 

Hi Phoebe!  I haven’t seen you in like forever.  Come to think of it you’ve never been to our place.                                                                              Hey Kali it’s neat here.  Only you and Shoko live here with your mom and dad?   Yep, I like that cause you could get attention immediately if not sooner.  I’d miss Sammy P and a couple of the others though.  It’s a happy place at 15 and Meowing.

Here Phoebe have a Mint Junip.  They are very tasty.  All the ingredients are organic and straight from our garden.                                                              

Mmmm, tasty Kali.  I suppose you’re wondering…what I’m doing here and what do I want.  It has crossed my mind Phoebe.  Everything OK?  Hmm….oh of course everything at home is fine.  I was thinking about us more experienced female felines.  The ones that are 15 and over.  We should have a special place for just us ladies to hang out.  Our interests are different from the young uns’.  I like it Phoebe!  How about a badge that is descriptive of us with member cards?  That sounds good Kali.                                                                                           We look sharp KaliThat’s cause we are Phoebs.                                                                           Here is the member card.  We’ll tell everyone that this is a social group open to any female feline 15 or over.  Mom says anyone that joins, she will make them a hat.  Wow,  your mom must be talented.  Wouldn’t your mom make a hat for members?  Yea, she would make them a hat but nobody would appreciate her effort ….mom doesn’t crochet or sew very well.

Interested in joining ,contact Kali at jeanneil@telus.net or Phoebe at 15 and Meowing.
