Friday Feline Fill Ins From Fort Meezer

One very sunny day here in the north.  Both Shoko and I ran outside first thing this morning when the temperature was 2C.  It is now 8C with a huge yellow ball in the sky but Shoko has ducked back inside. Shoko, you look kinda fuzzy……pull yourself together sis.

Mom wants Shoko to get fresh air so out Shoko goes.

Today is Feline Friday at Comedy Plus so get down there and visit some very cool posts by some happy yet zany friends.                                                                            Also Friday is Fill In day with Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs with Lorianne.

1. ANTS… makes my skin crawl.  WE DON’T EVEN HAVE PICTURES OF ANTS….THEY ARE RARELY TO BE FOUND AROUND HERE.  Mr. Goggle supplied one for us to show you.

2. I enjoy …..A DUST BATH IN SUMMER.
                                                             

3. I consider myself…..A KEEN WILDLIFE EXPERT..  I’m in the bushes behind the Kit Kat Klub where many a mouse has been found.  The Kit Kat Klub has never had a mouse cause all us kitties that use the Lane keep the Klub free of vermin.                                                                   

4. MOUSIES….. and TREATS….. ARE NOT A GOOD MIX.  YOU’D THINK THEY WOULD BE, BUT NO WAY.  THE TASTE IS STOMACH TURNING.

There is no way I am showing you a picture of me barfing.  So here I am burping with some daintiness.                                                               

BUUUURRRRP!  S’cuse me for the belch my friends! It was suppose to be dainty.  Well, it sure wasn’t dainty, Tyebe  Guess dad is wearing off on me.

In Purrsuit of Flavours, The Season of the Stew

Here it is the beginning of October!  Where did summer go?  We had a week of very hot weather in June where 500 people died in BC because  of the heat,  It shows you what heat can do to a relatively cool area.  We now have a mobile A/C in case hell comes back to visit.                                                         

Me laying on the clothes hamper in June. I was searching for someplace cool.

We are  joining Comedy Plus for Wordless Wednesday.  click on the name or the badge and visit Comedy Plus and a whole bunch of your friends,                                                                     

Phenny, Nellie and their mom are co-hosting Stew Season with us.  Do on whip over to their place and see what they and their friends are offering today.  Just click on their names in red.

Time now, for the season of the stew. We thought we’d try something simple and easy to make. This is from a recipe on-line.
TADA!!                                                                             

SIMPLE BEEF STEW

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp.. vegetable oil
1 lb. stewing beef…cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups assorted vegetables (carrots, onions, celery, potatoes and/or any leftover veggies in your fridge) We pulled out some frozen pea pods from last year and threw them in the mixture.                                                             

1 can beef broth or consommé. Consommé has more body to it.
1 can of tomato sauce with basil, garlic and oregano.                                         

 

Bring on over the stewing beef, Tyebe. Here you go Shokorooney. mol Don’t call me that! I hate that name. I know…mol mol

DIRECTIONS

Heat 1 tbsp. of oil in large skillet or fry pan over medium high heat.  Add meat and salt.  Cook 5 minutes, stirring until browned on all sides.  Remove from frying pan.

At this stage I chose the stew for the crock pot.  If, it was cooked on the stove it would be ready (ya, right) in 55 minutes!  I could not imagine such a tough meat being cooked so fast so I chose the recipe for the crock pot.

Put braised stewing meat in crockpot.  Followed by the rest of the vegetables, consommé and tomato sauce.  Stir to combine.  Cook on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. or until meat is tender

Mom and dad like their carrots a little firmer so we put them in about an hour before time was done.

REVIEW by mom and dad

Tyebe and Shoko did an excellent job of making the stew. The size of the meat and vegetables was just right.  The meat was as soft and tender to eat as beef tenderloin. The peapods were a perfect addition. However, dad and I found that the tomato sauce overwhelmed the taste of the meat and the vegetable. Next time they can omit the sauce and add a couple of tomatoes.

Slightly Wordy Wednesday with Tyebe

I am here to give you the reminder that In Purrsuit of Flavours is coming out next Wednesday, the 6th of October,  Now, Phenny and Shoko fussed about a Halloween theme or a cold weather theme.  The cold weather theme won out.  Let’s see if you can guess the dish.  What do Stewart Little and Rod Stewart have in common?                                                 

Well, stew of course. This means any kind of stew you can create. We of course have a surprise stew but it is a simple one.

There will not be a reminder Monday as we will probably be making our stew. So this is the date for Stew Season.

We are joining Wordless Wednesday on Comedy Plus even if we spoke. Click on the icon to be swept over there.

A video of Tyebe playing with a visiting rodent.

Tyebe attempts a Selfie.

Today I plan on taking a selfie while pretending to sleep.  I have practiced all morning and have got the shot down.

Pretty good, eh? I didn’t miss an ear or anything. Those little tripods are excellent.

I also have been out in the Lane again. This time of the year is awesome for catching mice as they are looking for a winter home, what with the cold coming.

Mom’s neighbor got a picture of a black bear in her yard at 3am last night but it’s pretty black and all you can see are it’s eyes blinking.  Shows you how close the bears can get to humans when they are foraging for enough food to see them through hibernation.

Still, I wouldn’t want to meet this black giant.

Remember Me Thursday with Angel Budd

Time to tell you when and how  my life changed .

It’s me, Budd.  I don’t consider myself an angel just a good ole boy that hangs with some pretty spectacular bro’s and sisters.                                                             

You don’t know how I came to live with Tyebe and Shoko? Well. let me tell you my story. I ended up in a Lane with nothing no food, water or even clothes to wear. I wandered up and down the Lane for hours and finally crashed under a bush for some shut eye. I met several kitties but they were either mean or so hungry I thought they’d eat me.

One day I was lying under my special bush waiting for a spot of sun when a white cloud zipped by. It was so fast i didn’t have time to move. This happened later in the day too but the cloud was alot slower and I saw this cloud was a kitten. I followed her and watched where she went. She went to this house and flopped down under a swinging bench.

I watched this little ball of fur for a long time and saw she had a sister. She was a hissy thing and was no company for the ball of fur. So I went up on the deck and chattered with the little one in my softest voice so I didn’t scare her. She invited me to lay with her under the swinging bench.


Well, I was in seventh heaven. This little one smelled like fresh milk and kitten biscuits. I felt a warm glow. Each day I would leave after supper and come back the next morning. One day, the peeps just opened the door and let me stay.

Turns out the white ball of fluff was called Tyebe and the hissy faced sister was Shoko.  Shoko was easy to control.  I would just put on my best wrestlers waddle and Shoko was gone.

My new mom and dad took me to the vet’s and I was not impressed just like Tyebe told me.  The vet told mom and dad something that they didn’t like and then we left.  Tyebe and Shoko both had visits to the vet and blood drawn.  Mom and dad relaxed a bit when they heard the news.  Turns out I had Feline Leukemia and after all this time Tyebe and Shoko did not.  Tyebe had 1 shot against it but was fine.  Mom and dad decided to let me stay and enjoy our household as long as possible.

I stayed for a little over 2 years and then it was time to leave. I’m afraid I left my family in a very upset state. Even ole hissy face was sad.

Now, they all say the time with me was priceless. This family never had a male cat before and did I ever show them what us males can accomplish.

I would suggest taking a cat in and adopting him. The pleasures can’t really be read about but must be experienced.

Be back Soon

They caught us, Tyebe.  No we weren’t doing much Just getting ready for some fun.
This is an old picture of  Tyebe but isn’t she spacy looking with the hat mom made that doesn’t fit.  lol

Thanks for your patience while I work through some health issues.
