Artsy Fartsy Day is Here My Friends

I’m going to be an artistic devil today.  Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty, is continuing with her artsy blog hop this week.  Go have a peek at your anipals in odd artistic backgrounds.  Have a few laughs to start your day.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET                                                                       Kali decided she wanted to do Sunday Selfie so I get the fun artistic picture.  Mom and I chose a picture mom took this morning while I was helping her make the bed.  We do have chores.  No free lunch in this abode.

Mom cropped the picture on Pizap.

The effect we liked best this week was the Shamrock cutout.  It was on Lunapic.

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th and we are prepared.

Mom, are you and dad going somewhere for a vacation this year?  We are Shoko.  You’re going to leave us alone?  No, of course not!  Judy the petsitter is going to stay here while we’re away.  Really?  That will be so much nicer than being here alone with Kali.  She works during the day doesn’t she?  She does ShokoGood….I mean we need some private time too.                                                                How long will you be gone?  A little over two weeks Shoko.  When I come back ‘ll have a few treats for you and Kali.  Say that sounds cool!

May your mice be furry and your
wet food nekked.                                                                                               Have a mellow Sunday my friends.

Friday Fill-Ins

Before we get started let’s take a minute and honour Butter Lovin Boomer from Da Tabbies of Trout Towne.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                                                           I’ll see you again someday Boomer.                                                                     May your steps be light and  the butter lead your way home Boomer.

Boomer aka Bum, was born on May 1 of 1998.  He walked off into the sunset with St. Francis of Assisi on March 7, 2017.  Boomer lived for 19 years!  That is some life span my friend. He must’ve had a mission.


Now, let’s get on with the Friday fill-ins co-hosted by Ellen Of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

I will answer the first 2 sentences and Shoko will tackle the last 2 sentences
1. I hope …BLUE BLOODS….. gets renewed for another season.   MOM IS SO HAPPY WATCHING TOM SELLECK THAT IT WOULD UPSET HER IF IT WERE CANCELLED.  I LIKE IT WHEN MOM IS HAPPY.

2. My first crush was…..GAGE……A JET BLACK KITTY THAT WAS AROUND MY AGE WHEN I WAS A KITTEN.  HE LIVED ACROSS THE STREET WHEN WE WERE IN THE OTHER HOUSE.  I USED TO GO VISIT HIM AT HIS PLACE AND HE WOULD ROLL ME DOWN THE SLIGHT HILL ON HIS FRONT LAWN.    I WAS A BIT ON THE ROLY POLY SIDE WHEN I WAS KITTEN.

Take it away Shoko.

3……BEING IN MY VEGETABLE GARDEN….. usually makes me…..SUPER HAPPY.  UNLESS, THERE IS SNOW ALL OVER THE GARDEN.

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be…..CATWOMAN.  I WOULD DRESS UP IN TIGHT FITTING JEANS AND SWING MY WAY ACROSS TOWN LOOKING FOR PEEPS THAT HURT ANIMALS AND HURT THEM BACK.

There you have it our fill-ins for this Friday

May the mouse you’re chasing blow you kisses
from the opposite side of the fence.

Have a happy weekend  and don’t nip and walk.  Too dangerous.  Stay home.                                                                     

A Visit with a New and Different Dentist

SHOKO….. BLACK
KALI….. ORANGE
COW KITTY…..GREEN

It’s time for us to get mom up and active, Kali.  I’ll go yell on the stairs and you can start talking in your loud manner.  I’m not LOUD like some ole fishwife…..I’m emphatic.  With a tad of urgency in my voice.  You mean more like a scream…MOL  It’ll get her up and rootin’ around for our brekky.  Why’s she so tired Shoko?  She has had a toothache for a few days so went to the dentist.  Her regular dentist was on her week off but her husband, Dr. Lopez was on, so she made an appointment with him.                                                       aacounter-shokoOff she toddled to meet him and find out what gives with this tooth.  Was he nice Shoko?  Her regular dentist is so nice.  Mom likes her, as far as she likes any dentist.                                                                  aakalibaskJust listen Kali.  Mom went into his office and had the x-rays taken and then the nurse introduced Dr. Lopez.  Mom was speechless.  This doesn’t happen often friends.  He looked a little like, “Sam I Am” from Dr, Seuss.

aasamiam1

He shook mom’s hand instead of raising his hat.  Every word he said, he expressed with his hands,  He had on white gloves…..ok, they were medical gloves but the image was the same.                                        aack2What?  He turned out to be Sam I Am.  What a dentist he would make!  No, no….he behaved like Sam I Am, Cow Kitty.  Do you know mom’s tooth didn’t hurt anymore!  Turned out it was her sinus’ acting up and they made her tooth pound. He prescribed antibiotics. When he told mom she shouldn’t have a prescribed anti-biotic without taking food with it, he wagged his finger back and forth just like Sam I Am.

When mom left the dentist, she felt good to have met Sam I Am’s human twin.

One of our favourite Dr. Seuss quotes:
So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.                                                                                      sistersinarmswinter               

                                        

Selfie Sunday With Kali In Charge

Selfie Sunday rears its head once again.  Pop over to The Cat On My Head and join in her blog hop of anipals and admire the others posing for you.                                                                         catonheadbdThis week our kitty of the selfie variety is Kali.  Thank you Shoko.  These pictures were taken with the use of a remote selfie stick.  I stuck the stick up against the lamp and clicked until there were some good photos.  Granted you can’t see my face but you know it’s me from the velvety white coat of mine.

aakalispoon4Mom introduced me to the unstinky hypoallergenic wet food.  I wasn’t about to touch this garbage.

Gimme Beads and Fancy Things

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, a French Catholic tradition that celebrates debauchery before Lent begins with Ash Wednesday for Christians. The festival date varies from city to city, but most Americans base their celebration of Mardi Gras off of the famous celebration in New Orleans.                                                                                  mardimaskKali do you remember when mom and dad went to New Orleans?  Oh ya, they had fun.  So did we…MOL,  Dai$y of databbiesotrouttowne was a riot.  The trout she brought to the party was so delicious and big.  This was the first time we tasted trout, where has it been all our life?

Mom and dad went south right after Mardi Gras two years ago..  Mom brought us back some beads that were hanging on the trees.                                                                            shoko-with-mardi-gras-beads

Mom said the houses were so colourful and the streets so pretty.

dscn0836This is a circle street near the Confederate Museum.  They had an Italian sandwich sitting on a park bench watching the birds.                                                        shoko-withmaskDo you get the feeling mom and dad are going away again this year?  I do Shoko.  Wonder where they’ll be off to this year?  Mmmm…I wonder.  We’ll be partaying again this year then.

 

May you sleep like the pigs….How do pigs sleep?

With their eyes closed of course.                                                                                        sistersinarmswinter

 

 

 

Sunday Selfie with Kali

The Cat On My Head is hosting the Selfie blog hop and it was my turn to show my stuff.  hehe  I sound so risqué.

KALI…..ORANGE                                                     catonheadbdMom has probably told you my food allergy has been acting up again.  I’ve been scratching my neck until there is a humongous bare spot on my neck.  Mom’s solution, tie Shoko’s bandana from Cat Scouts around my neck.  She also put me on hypoallergenic wet food. OMC….it’s the most disgusting food I’ve ever tasted!  Mom has discovered a way to get me to eat some though.  Now get this my buddies……she spoon feeds me. MOL  I have to put something in my mouth or I’d laugh myself silly.

kalibandana1See the black stuff at the corner of my eyes.  This is worse when my food allergy is acting up.
