Howdy folks, Here we are at the end of 2018. It’s been a year of many changes for me. Kali, my best friend, left for the Rainbow Bridge in February. We were all crushed and so unhappy for months. I no longer had my friend to give a bad time or laugh with over the silly things mom does. In May mom brought a rat home to live with us.
Man, did she stink! P. U. Furthermore she couldn’t do anything fun. She was too small and couldn’t even run that far without crashing and falling asleep.
She was so proud of herself for climbing the cat pole. A simple task for me.
I sat her down and explained how she should act towards me, “You only have to bow once, Tyebe.”
“Oh, there’s a fly! Whatever, Shoko….talk later.” She just didn’t understand the respect I deserved. What a ding dong.
In August, this strange lookin’ furry guy was fascinated with Fort Meezer. He would sit on the mattress under the bench and watch Tyebe playing. Some might even say a dirty ole man but he turned out to want the best for Tyebe and would alert mom if Tyebe was straying.
In September he started coming in the house for some supper. Finally, he moved in and never looked back.
So my home environment has drastically changed. I am slowly getting used to the changes. These two have no respect for their elders but I’ll pound it into them.
It’s time for a selfie. The last Sunday Selfie of the year and our host once again is the ever popular, The Cat On My Head.
Of course, Shoko’s favourite, grilled salmon.
We couldn’t have a BBQ without Shoko’s treat of all treats….Spider Dogs!
Also, sparkling nip water for everyone.
Angel Kali came to visit Shoko and wish her a Happy Gotcha Day. Buddy and Angel Kali spent some quality time together.
Einey, you are so floofy today. Extras combs of your fur for me, eh? C’mon Einey let’s hop in the sack. mol
Welcome Marv, how’s the weather in the banana belt of BC? Grab something to eat. I’m sure one of the choices is a favourite of yours.
Shokos I’s got you a gift. This is a straw me’s saved just for your Gotcha Day. See no teeth marks.
That is so nice of you, Tyebe…thank you. I’s got you’s another gift too but me got excited and forgot meself. I’s sorry Shokos.
So I’s also giving you my cardboard tire . You’ll like it Shokos. It rolls like it’s headed downhill. mol *hic* I love cardboard tires…you are very thoughtful Tyebe.
I would like to thank my friends for coming to my party. Wally, Cupcake, Kosmo, Bacon, Phenny and Neilson, Teddy…and everyone else…oh dudes and dudettes you all are awesome. Is Charles, me brother from another mother, here?
Please help yourself to some Yeoww! nip and take some with you.
1. The oldest item in my home is …..DAD……. Dad manages to be in pretty good condition for his age. He can even walk to town and back.
2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is …..a low cal salad dressing that no one likes. We won’t discuss the expiry date, MOL
I got the next two Skoks. Go for it Kali.
3. My family heritage is ….. Siamese. My biological mom was a Lynx Point and bio dad was a Flame Point like me. Most of my life I have had the same big butt as him too.Mom…a Lynx Point Siamese Dad…a Flame Point Siamese. I’m not as flame coloured as dad.
4. My favourite family tradition is ….mom reading at story time and giving us our kisses good night, every night. Makes me feel warm and loved.
It’s time we asked mom when she’s going away so we can plan our wee pawty with the gang from Blogville. Should we tell mom about the pawty Shoko? Are you kidding….no way. She would be upset and give Judy some terrible rules like hide the nip and put all the toys away. I have mom’s credit card number and have been paying attention when she buys something. You better not get mom in trouble or you’ll be looking for a new home. You mean she’d get rid of me over a few measly dollars. With her credit card! No, mom wouldn’t get rid of you….I would. You don’t hurt the ones you love Shoko, not ever. So we do this pawty proper like or we have none. I see what you mean Kali and I won’t use mom’s credit card. How bout her emergency money? That’s border line bad behaviour Shoko. Well, how else are we going to get the money for a happening pawty? Steal the things we need? Mom would be horrified if we stole anything. She just wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behaviour from either of us. We weren’t brought up to steal what we want. Well, I don’t have any idea then. *sigh*
Stay still Shoks, you’re making me dizzy with your blurriness. How bout your Da Bird wand…..we could get a few dollars for that at the …..No way sis, Einey gave me Da Bird for Christmas. I’m never, ever, ever parting with it. OK, OK…cool your booties, I won’t take it away.Hi there mom, we were just talking about you and dad and your vacation. Where are you going? We’re going to France Shoko. FRANCE…you mean like Paris. Exactly! Cool, that’s where I went with Cat Scouts. You going to see the Eiffel Tower? Oh we can’t miss seeing such a wonderful place. Did you know that Einey and I went hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower.Really, weren’t you scared? Well, a little but Einey was with me. He would save you right Shoko? No….if I die in the jump, so does he. See, don’t we look cool. How long will you be gone mom? A couple of weeks Shoko. We leave next week. We’re also headed for London after France. So you are going to more places than Paris in France? Yes, you betcha. We’re going to see Phenny and his parents. No seriously mom, anyone I would know? Phenny and his parents Shoko. They live across a huge pond……you can’t jump that far and our magic carpet wouldn’t hold you and dad. You’ll have to wait and see the pictures when we get back.
Friends, friends. That’s it Kali! I got it. We can ask our friends to bring one fun food or drink to the pawty. By the time 10 friends are here the choices will be fantastical. I like that Shoko….we can supply some things like nip, some silvervine and chicky broth with a blob of chicky in it. We can get some good games going too. We have to have a catchy name. How about Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty? Let it be……come one and all to our Lucky Pot Pawty. The last week of March is when we are having the funniest pawty you have ever seen.
May you never find a cat in your burger! That makes no sense, Shoko. Does too! You never heard of a cat burger? That’s a cat burglar Shoko. You say burglar I say burger….same diff.
Welcome my friends….Have a seat and a Nipitini. Today is Selfie Sunday with our host The Cat On My Head. This is a blog hop, so that means we hop from blog to blog and see our friends attempting their own selfies. Simply click on the blog name and admire your friends. I was thinking of summer today. You know, I really miss playing out in the yard and grabbing a drink out of my wadding pool. *sigh*
I miss laying out on my air mattress grabbing some rays.The sun beating down on my back. Aww….I can feel the warmth soaking into my bones.
Here I am testing the water for a drink. I was standing in front of mom’s green onions. This is my selfie memory of summer.
It’s my turn for a parting saying Shoko. Go for it sisteh.
May flowers always line your path And sunshine light your day
Have a fun filled Sunday all you treat craving anipals.
Morning Kali. *Yawn* Super nap. It’s wonderful up here. Is there anything nicer than a pile of clothes to snuggle into and keep warm? Ya, but Shoks, the clothes haven’t been washed yet….they’re dirty. You know mom and dirty…nothing’s ever very dirty around here….not even you or me. So what’s got you up and into the laundry room Kali….you never come in here? I heard mom talking to dad about a pet stroller. I never heard of a pet stroller….is there such a thing? Do they put pets in the stroller instead of kids? I would like to see the terrier down the street in a stroller…MOL MOL MOL It’d be hilarious! No Shoks, the stroller will be for us!
What? For us? No way is anybody getting me in NO dang stroller!! I ain’t nobody’s baby….geesh!
This sucks! I don’t think so Shoks. I’d love a ride in a stroller…my feet and hips wouldn’t hurt . What? You mean you don’t care if Cow Kitty calls you a wimp? You know how embarrassed you were when he called you a mean white furball to his friends. That was just rude Shoko….typical of a growing dudecat that can’t get a rise out of me any other way.
Mom…oh mom I heard from Kali that you’re planning on getting a pet stroller for us…..is this true? Whatdaya mean by aha? I’m no baby and don’t want to be pushed all over the neighbourhood with my friends giggling behind my back.
Let’s forget the whole idea mom…ok? No….you think Kali really needs the help? You lost me mom. All I hear from you now is yada, yada, yada! It’s not fair…this sucks big time.
C’mon Kali let’s mellow out and relax….mom can be so stubborn. At least the stroller’s not here yet….that means we have more time to change mom’s mind.
Is everybody ready for the final vote. Kali and I must thank all our friends for the fantastic names.
There are going to be two different polls. Confusing eh? There will be names for the fence surrounding the backyard and the grounds or backyard.
The first choice is the fence area:
The second choice will be for the grounds or backyard itself:
Kali and I will decide on the name for our wee abode.
We are excited….our joint will have a gorgeous name.
By the way, mom was out talking with Cow-kitty’s father today. She asked all the important questions such as, how old is he, is he a he or a she, what’s his name, when do you feel he should be fixed. You know the crucial questions.
I never pulled this corn down! I’m being framed for a crime I didn’t commit. Kali!!!
Finally its Friday. This means mom won’t be running out everyday to get stuff. Today she had to get her eyebrows and mouse-stash waxed. She looks normal again…female even.
Kali has had a rough time cause she has been very sick to her stomach. She had to go to the vets this week and she was not happy about it. Unfortunately her food allergy is back.
Let me out of here! It stinks!
Kali says the only saving grace of the whole visit was the lovin’ her favourite receptionist Joan laid on her. When Kali got home she was feeling down. This new development meant no more Siamese dry cat food and the Fancy Feast wet will be reduced. Instead we will get more of the Hypoallergenic Soy HP dry. The HP is OK but by no means is it tasty. Our goal is to keep food on Kali’s tummy and slow down her bowels. So I’m willing to do my part for the ole girl.
Kali headed outside to sit under her swinging bench. Unfortunately the cow-kitten decided to visit Kali right then. He scared Kali and she took off after the cow-kitten just a hissin’ and spitin’ her head off. The cow-kitten got very scared and ran like mad through the hole in the fence.
A little while later the cow-kitten was back and following me around. Kali had headed inside for a well deserved nap as she was up a lot during the night as mom was too.
A little while later the cow-kitten was back and following me around.
