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.                                                                         

 

 

                                                                

Sunday Selfie With Kan Do Kali

The Cat On My Head blog is hosting the Sunday Selfies this week as they have done for years.  Kali is posing and modelling for it. Come see all the fun friends posing for their selfies.

The at on my HeadMy boyfriend Buddy Bud from the blog  Tomcat Commentary by Tim, was my inspiration for this Selfie.  Can you tell I was dreaming about my Blue boy?  Buddy, this selfie is for you?
This is the one and only time I fell sound asleep on mom’s desk. Don’t I look happy and peaceful?
akadesk1I had to set the timer as I was incredibly sleepy and felt I may drift off at any time.
Have a great Sunday my friends.

Kali and Shoks
Whoops!! I am so sorry, mom hit the wrong button and published my beautiful artwork too early!  Shoko is having a talk with her as I write.

Trippin’ On The Keys Pt. 2

ahhOf course this is Ernest Hemingway.  He was only 62 when he went to join his cats from the cemetery at the Rainbow Bridge.

Mom wanted to stay longer at Hemingway’s House.  The house and grounds were fascinating and Walt Disney enjoyed showing mom around.                                                            awaltThe cats have a cat house that is a replica of Hemingway’s House.

acathouseShe had to say goodbye to Walt.  Dad was tapping his watch and saying they had other places to go on Key West before nightfall.

awaltdNotice Walt’s front paws…a true Hemingway cat.  Look real hard at Walt….think he has a stand in.

Off mom and dad went in their flame coloured Fiat.  Heading for the southernmost tip of the USA.                                                                    asouthtipThis is the best picture they could get of the buoy.  See all the tourists…mom says the tourists just kept coming.   The southernmost point was originally just marked with a sign, which was often stolen. In response to this, the city of Key West erected the now famous concrete buoy in 1983. The concrete buoy is actually an old sewer junction that was dug up in the area and found too heavy and large to move, so it was painted up to look like a buoy.  It is 81 nautical miles straight south to Cuba.  The buoy says 90 but its inaccurate.                                                          asmhzm    The Southernmost house in the USA.  Mom said all you can really see are lots of palms around the house.

They drove through the Truman Annex.  How the American government acquired this land from the people is in much debate….even today.  It is worth googling the Truman Annex my friends.  Much of the Truman Annex today is privately owned.                                                                     aa3

The houses are beautiful and most of them are Townhouses.  For mom the main attraction was the Little White House.

alwhTruman’s White House in Key West was the winter White House for President Harry Truman for 175 days during 11 visits. The house is located in the Truman Annex neighborhood of Old Town.

The Little White House was the end of their visit to Key West and it was time to take the Fiat and vacate this Key.

For the next three hours, which were uneventful….dad drove and mom sipped on her free Cokes from Coca Cola Headquarters and stared at the same scenery going back up the Keys.  You can imagine the bathroom breaks!  There were no pictures.  I think mom fell asleep but she denies it.  Finally they stopped on Marathon Key.  There are no pictures as it was as black as…mom’s…um…can’t say that….black as her camera!

Finally they piled out at the Yellowtail Inn.  This Inn was fantastic….individual cabins that had a view that looked  out on the Atlantic, except it was dark and they couldn’t see anything but what was directly in front of them.                                                                     aviewThe inside looked like this:                                            aytThey quickly grabbed some food and had a slice of Key Lime Pie….seeing as they were here on a Key.  They quickly went off to bed at 10pm to get up at 3:30am.  I  can just see mom settling down for the night.  All of a sudden there was a kkkkkfupclack, kkkkkfupckack….on went the light and they soon discovered it was the fridge talking to them.  They figured they could sleep through that so turned off the lights.  The lights came back on…by themselves….went off and then stayed on for a few minutes.  Hmmm….they fell asleep but mom says she was restless as was dad because between the lights coming on and off and the fridge making ghastly noises….it was most unsettling to say the least.   So they got up at 3am and left….both very tired but they had to get to Miami Airport by 7am.  The room looked nice but it was haunted and not by happy tourists.

Finally, they made it to the airport.  In to the rental company  went the Fiat.  Mom and dad sat like statues at their gate for hours.  Dad always likes to be real early.                                                               ajetThere’s their plane.  Delta’s headquarters is in Atlanta and that’s where mom and dad were headed, change planes and off to Seattle, change planes again and off to Vancouver, Canada.

This is my favourite part cause they visited with Nellie while in Vancouver…my mentor.                                                                       nellie2Then it was a prop plane to Prince George and home!

Would you say these two have had enough of travelling for the year?                                 appb  MOL…what a sight!                                                                             appjMOL  These are actually mom and dad’s passport photos but they looked like this when they walked in the front door after their trip.  I tell you it isn’t fair.  They looked way better when they left for vacation.  Now, mom looks like she wants to beat up dad. MOL

I don’t know why they go away, we’re all that matter and we’re so handy.                                                                         kalimedalsmThis is the loudest comforter I’ve seen in our house and mom loves it…..turn it over to the grey side mom.                                                                              Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

An Under the Weather Day

What a cwappy day.  It’s pouring…..apparently the end of some hurricane decided to come all this way inland and grace us with its rain.   The wind is ahowlin’ and the leaves are blowing everywhere. I’m not impressed!                                                                             Furthermore it looks like my friends Penelope and her bro Pippin’ have had a horrible accident in the basement and may not be up to playing with us this year.  I won’t go into detail but its not a pretty sight apparently.  Mom won’t tell me anymore than that.                                                                   penelope and pippin2 Remember these cheery faces.  My friends Penelope and Pippin’.

We had such fun together.  Well what’s a kitty to do!

Kali had to go to the vet’s today too.  She didn’t want to go and told mom why but mom had her ears turned off.  Before I knew it they were back again.  I guess I must’ve fallen asleep.                                                                             Kali was very happy to get out of the carrier and disappeared before I completely woke up.  Kali has arthritis with some wasting around her hips.  The pain giver recommended fish oil and if there is no difference a capsule for arthritis will be appropriate.  Mom said it was remarkable but Kali who usually sheds all fur hanging about, so it looks like a fog has descended upon the room, didn’t shed 1 hair.                                                                              Kali vet visit3One great thing that happened today was mom got her Cat Lady box and we both helped her look inside.                                                                                                                            We exhausted ourselves with the box and are ready for a snooze.

Kali is delighted its Artsy, Fartsy Caturday  on Athena and Marie’s blog tomorrow and she gets to pose.  Simply click on the name of the hosting blog and enjoy the anipals in their artsy forms.

waterkaliHave a great weekend my friends and if you get a chance drop into Cat Scouts on Saturday as I will be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving.  I will probably celebrate off and on for the whole long weekend.                                                                                                                               

 

 

 

Funky Friday

You know Kali tomorrow is the Carnival at Cat Scouts.  I should be gone all weekend.  This means I can tell our friends a story bout you they haven’t heard before.  Try to be nice sis.                                                                       MOL…Look at Cow Kitty!  MOL…..He’s falling asleep in the nip…..practicing to become a nip head I guess.  That was your goal when you were his age Shoko.  MOL…I also wanted to live in a treat factory.

Where are Bashful and Chip?  I haven’t seen them for hours.  They went into the Lane to talk with some of the local stoners.   I guess I should leave them alone to discover the Canadian rocks.  Ya, I have something planned anyway.                                                         Before you go to your planned event, you better do your artsy, fartsy Caturday picture.  Right!  Thanks for the reminder Shoks.

Pushy Dang Neighbour

Kali did you see a blur out of the corner of your eye.  Sure enough Shoko, I did.  I think its the little guy from next door again.  He’s sure starting to hang around here a lot.  I think he likes you Shoko.  He wants to play with you.  Ya think.

Nuisance Neighbour

Nuisance Neighbour

Hey, he disappeared, where’d that little curmudgeon go?

Here, I’ll help you look Shoko.                           Geesh, he just jumped out at me….cwap I nearly wet myself Kali.  I was never this stupid as a kitten.  No you weren’t Shoko……you were worse!  I’d be fast asleep and you would leap right in front of me so when I opened my eyes all I saw was your face……then you’d smacky paw me with your claws out.  They were just like little tiny pins.  ME!  I’m not like that….don’t wanna talk about it anymore Kali.

This guy is getting closer all the time.

DSCN3592Gimme a break!  He wants to play with me.  I can’t play with him.  He’s too small…..I might hurt him.  He’s lookin’ at the bugs too.  He’s a real flit.  Just like you were Shoko.

Thank goodness he’s gone home Kali.  I don’t know if I could take much more of him.

                                                                       

 

 

 

Every Day Just A Little Different

 

I had a marvelous day yesterday at Cat Scouts.  Sammy of the Worldwide Wildcat Troop put on a Greenhouse warming party and we all brought our nip plants.  Well, I had a riot chasing some mice out back with a few of my pals.  Needless to say I overindulged in the nip and mom informed me I sounded weird so we should go home.

Greenhouse Warming

 

                                       

Once home I did what every cat that was “nipped” out would do…….I slept.

 

 

Today I was chompin’ at the bit to get out in the sunshine.  So dad let me out.  That was early this morning.  Mom called and called me but I never showed up and I usually come to her by the second calling.   By 2pm, mom was fussin’ and fumin’ as to where I was…..so dad, wanting to put mom’s mind at rest,  MOL….came lookin’ for me.  I was found fast asleep under one of the neighbour’s 87,000 old cars.  Dad took me home and told mom where he found me.  Mom kept me inside but I was tired and didn’t want to go gallivanting about. I crawled up to my condo and continued my pleasant dream.

 

Kali had her own objectives for the day.  Rising at 10am, she went tripping sleepily out to the deck. 

 

Kali hasn’t been feeling so great lately and so mom decided to give her some Barley Cat…this aids with digestion.   Kali came back in for her beef Fancy Feast.  Mom thought she was being real sneaky by putting the Barley Cat into the Fancy Feast.  Kali looked at the Fancy Feast, looked at mom, shook her front paws and walked away to lay down in her basket.  Not the reaction mom wanted at all.  Mom waited for an hour and then took a teaspoon of food to Kali in her basket.  Kali proceeded to gobble the food down as if she hadn’t been fed for days.  Mom tried this again with the same results.  Mom got the bowl of food and gave it to her and Kali got up and finished the bowl of food. 

Me?  Spoiled?

Me? Spoiled?

 

Now, mom is just shaking her head wondering about us.  Why am I found sound asleep under an old car when I have so many comfy places to sleep right here?  What is Kali trying to prove by declining her food and then eating the same food  when it is spoon fed to her?  Every day different.
