Sunday Selfie with Shoko

 

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.

 

Onwards to The Cat On My Head’s selfie Sunday.                                               

Do stop by their blog and admire your friend’s selfies or better yet….jump in and join them.                                                       

My selfie for this Sunday.

Friends…..enjoy a lovely Sunday.                                         

Caturday Artsy Day with an Old Tart

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?

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.

Signs of Fall Around Fort Meezer

Last night was cold…Kali and I snuggled up with mom instead of leaving the bedroom after our story and treats. It was -7C and we felt quite chilled.  Mom even turned the heat up.                                                     Mom and I went out for a walk in the Lane today.  Fall was in the air.  First, we checked out the backyard.

Woah, the sunflower is looking like the giant fell out!  Wonder where he went?                                               Time to take it down and put the head on the shed roof for hungry birds.

Speaking of the shed, we have two of them now, thanks to dad.                                                           Nice, eh?  The big one is for the snow blower, lawn mower, shovels etc.  The little one is for ornaments and containers for summer.  We’ll see how this works out.  These peeps aren’t the most organized…so we’ll see what spring brings.

The brussel sprouts have had their touch of frost to make them sweeter.                                                       It’s kinda sad….all my work and it’s over for another year. *sigh*

The Lane is looking like it’s seen better days.  Trees have either yellow leaves, a few green leaves or they’re bald.                                           This is the time of year that little critters are up and actively looking for warm homes.                                                      Oh, oh!!  It smells like fresh mouse, right here.  You go ahead mom, I’ll catch up.

The four-legged little beast got away but I know where he lives….mol                                                     

Ya, let’s go see what Kali’s doing at the house.

Where’d those two go…..my tummy says it’s dinner time.

Wonder if it will be cold again tonight.                                                    

Sunday Selfie With Kali

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

Watcha doin Kali?

What’s it look like Shoko?  For heaven sakes……I’m drying my hind paw nails.  I’ve never painted them before and thought I’d try doing them at least once.  It’s usually hard to bend deep enough to get the whole nail but not in this special Princess bed.                                                               MOL…ya, you do look like a little, twisted sister!                                                        

You won’t catch me painting my nails like some Hussey.

 

Shoks, do you remember Henrietta….a pretty Calico that lived a few houses down from us?                                               

  Yep, we all called her Henny cause she pecked at the ground like a hen looking for bugs.

Well, she refused to paint her nails too.  One day Cow Kitty mouthed off at her and she clawed at his leg.                                                       

 Do you know that her nails fell out?  Just the ones that touched Cow Kitty but they ripped and then came out.

No!!  Why did they fall out?  They were so weak cause she had no way to harden her nails.  She refused to paint them, even with clear polish.  That polish would have toughened up her nails.                                                

Whatever happened to her?   She was very embarrassed!  Finally, the family moved away but we never did see much of Henny after that horrible incident.  So, that’s why we didn’t see her very often.  I didn’t know that Kali. I’ll have to rethink my objection to the polish.                                                       Wink, wink

The Cat On My Head is having one of her fantabulous lineups of animals taking selfies.                                                    I’m posing this week.  Hope you enjoy my efforts.                                                 

Have a Super Sunday friends.                                                                        

Friendly FryDay Fill-Ins For Furs Sake

It’s time for Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader‘s Fryday Fill-In fun.                                                      

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

Kali and I decided I’d go first.  Kali’s waiting for her nails to dry…really Kali?  Geez!                                                           

Oh, my!  This is more like a funny farm with mom hobbling around and you drying your nails like some dancer in Las Vegas….no wonder dad went away for a holiday.

He needs rose coloured glasses like I have. mol

Onward to our fill-ins for today.

I am far too….. INTIMIDATED TO RUN OUT AND PLAY WITH THE MANCATS IN THE LANE.  I’D LIKE TO, BUT KALI WOULD BE VERY ANNOYED WITH ME AND THAT OLE GAL PACKS A MEAN WHACKY PAW.                                               

  1. To save money, I GET MOM TO CUT OUT COUPONS FOR OUR CAT TREATS.  THERE AREN”T MANY COUPONS CAT TREATS.  I HAVE TOLD MOM THAT WE DON”T MIND IF WE NEVER GO BACK TO THE VET,  THAT SAVES ALOT OF MONEY.

  1. TIME….. matter(s).   IF, WE ARE FED PROMPTLY  AT 8-10AM AND THEN AGAIN FROM 6-7PM, WE EXPECT OUR FOOD AT THESE TIMES.  NO EXCUSES….WE ARE STARVING WHEN YOU’RE 5 MINUTES LATE.                                 

  1. OUR TENT makes me think …..OF SHOKO’S CAMPSITE IN CAT SCOUTS…HERE IN THE GARDEN……RIGHT NEAR THE CATNIP.                                      Have a fantastic weekend friends.                                          

Mom, What did you do?

A sunny day here but still cool.  I figured mom needed my help in hustling her butt so I helped her by lying right near the keypad and mouse.  I could see all the computer stuff but I got bored right quickly.                                                          

Good grief mom, don’t let Kali see this mess….she’ll start yammering at you in that weird little voice she gets when she’s ticked!                                        See, I’m very helpful….just ask me…I’ll tell ya.

Mom’s not getting around so easily these days….dad had to can the tomatoes today.

   It seems she has a fractured bone in her foot.  The doctor decided it was best for her to wear a boot for support.  She says the boot makes it easy to fall down.  We’ll see how she can handle this boot for three weeks….then she’ll go to the doctor and see if there is any difference.  If, she still walks like she didn’t make it to the kitty litter in time….she’ll have to wear the boot longer.                                                

We want to say how devastated we were at the passing of Phoebe of 15 and Meowing.  Phoebe had a difficult time with her health for some time but she is free of the pain now.  We will miss her very much in Blogville but she will remain in our hearts.                                                     

Purrince’s lady love

Happy life

Oh so precious and will be missed

Eternally loved by all 

Beautiful new heavenly angel

Especially sweet to her siblings

Thanks Madi for the beautiful words.
