Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader have given us four sentences to fill in with the way we see things. We plan to take turns and let you know how we feel. SHOKO…..BLACK
2. My favorite card game is…..Go Fish…I love fishing. I f I could catch a salmon….I’d be set for life. We’re waiting patiently for the fish to drop from the sky. Mom says that the mama fish drops a whole pile of eggs and then they hatch. C’mon a whole bunch of eggs drop into the pool. We’re waiting. MOL Ok Kali my turn..you go rest your paws.
They say Spring has sprung. Well Spring is struggling to stay out around here, She keeps hiding and letting a dress of white occupy the backyard. We don’t even want to see another picture of this dress….months and months we watched nature give us the Winter whites. Yuck…no more mom! Bring on the sunshine and flowers. Come on let’s exam the garden for signs of life. Hey, dad’s digging over my veggie garden. The ground is no longer frozen. High five, Kali!!
The tulips are peeking out. Bad news mom….the weeds seem to be posing for the picture. Guess we’ll be out weeding before long. 2nd year buds are on the transplanted lilac bush. Mom’s never seen the bald headed, tattooed man she got it from again. Someone told mom it takes a good three years for transplanted lilacs to have flowers. We shall see.
Here is our last sign of Spring in the backyard. It’s my Hawaiian collar that I lost in December! Now that the snow’s gone, dad found it. The red suits me…my favourite collar. I thought it was gone for good.
Oh cwap! Kali’s found a new kitten in the neighbourhood. She seems to like him. Another sign of Spring…new kittens in the area. This guy looks to be 5 months though. Get away from him Kali….we don’t need anymore visitors!! Our nip is getting too hairy. A further sign of spring are the puddles but no ice.
There you have it friends, the signs of spring around our place and our first walk of the year in the Lane.
Did you say dad made this, mom? He did a pretty good job. I like it. There’s a comfy bed in there too.
The city crew came by yesterday and cut back the grass and up and coming new trees. They also stripped the apple tree as it was full of apples and an attraction for bears getting ready to hibernate. Mom say’s the owner will be paying a hefty sum for the city maintenance crew to clear the property.
The crew picked a bowl of organic apples and gave them to us. Of course all the apples are organic as they’re just plain neglected.
Let’s take a stroll through the Lane. Our neighbours worked and got rid of some trees earlier during the summer. There was a loud racquet for days coming from this backyard. This is what they added. A wire fence or a section of it. Looks like some peeps are ready to play hockey out here. These folk had a B & E early last year and this is their protection now, a new fence where everybody can walk around it.
I’m coming mom. Slow down I gotta read the newspaper and find out who’s been here. Spot the Siamese! MOL Pretty good hiding place, eh? I still can’t catch a mouse though….I’ve tried everything…cwap! Ahhhh….feels good to lay down.
Here is a slightly blurry picture of Cow-Kitty looking proud as punch. Yep, you’re right, this is a pile of dirt on Showkali Island. Cow-Kitty was sleeping in here when mom got up this morning so she took him a bowl of Purrfect Bistro Duck Pate. He proceeded to gobble it up and then he buried his bowl. Mom had never seen this before have you?
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.
Today is THEE day for my big sis as she turns 13. Imagine 13! Thirteen years ago we never heard of Silvervine Catnip. Computers were harder to handle….there were not so many cats with blogs because computers were not “cat friendly” at that time.
When Kali was born mom and dad lived in a different house. They had a lane beside the house. Mom says that Kali was a very friendly kitten and if a stranger past by the backyard and said “Hi” to Kali….she would follow them home. Mom would quit gardening and race down the lane to bring Kali home again.
She is a fun sisteh and deserves the best. She deserves to be called queen and bowed to….ya right! In your dreams sis. Don’t hold your breath.
I know you lost the mice from last year…I might have had a wee bit to do with that. I got you mini mice this year, they are smaller and you can carry them around with your 4 teeth. Have fun with them Kali. You are a great sis…..
Look at all the food…dudette you are one lucky kittah.
Enjoy my Woofie friends. Mom made them but they are really good…I tasted them before letting her put them out.
We have some extra Woofie treats so you can take some home with you. It’s OK, mom didn’t make them.
We have extra Nipcider for our kitty friends to take home…enjoy!
Mom and dad got you a Furminator for your birthday Kali.
I’ve always wanted one of those. I’ve heard the back rub it gives is sooo relaxing. Thanks mom and dad. I can’t wait for a Furminator brush now. Maybe tonight when we start reading the 12 Rescue Stories.
What kind of a party would this be with out a cake. So Kali, mom made a cake that looks a lot like you sis.
It’s lovely mom…thank you.
Kali I don’t really have a present for you but you know I’ve been looking for a modelling job. Well, I got one…ya….I really got a job. Thanks to your help and guidance Kali I have a full-time job with Beautiful British Columbia Magazine.
Oh my Beatrice!! You did it!! I could have never done it with out you girlfriend. I also got a part time job at The Beaver. Everyone was delighted with my bling.
Oh Beatrice, I’m overcome….when do you leave? Monday. So soon!! They want to send me to the Yukon for a shoot on the lake near Dawson City. The ice is melting and won’t wait. I’ll miss you my friend. *Beatrice and Kali hug*
S’cuse me Kali and Beatrice but Kali you received a couple of cards from your friends.
That was so nice of the lil Oinker…you guys are special to me.
Easy Rider, what a lovely surprise! I bet you sent this bottle off months ago to make sure it made it to the Pacific Ocean and then ride the rivers up to Prince George. *blows a kiss to Easy*. What would I do without you my friend?
Hope you all enjoyed Kali’s pawty. Thanks for coming by.
