Where Is Cow Kitty?

You know Kali our friends are probably wondering where CowKitty is, cause we don’t talk about him anymore or have any pictures.  So here is the scoop:

CowKitty’s parents moved at the end of July.  CowKitty was so freaked out seeing all his furniture disappear….he took off and his parents couldn’t find him.  They left food and water for him and one of their windows open.  They never came back for 2 weeks.  Needless to say, CowKitty was spending his time over here when he calmed down.  He was scared of us like when he first moved here.  Mom took some wet food out to him beside the house and he gobbled it up.  He slowly started sitting on our bench and playing with mom.                                      Mom decided to keep him and told dad who was a little more realistic.  He told mom, CowKitty wasn’t our cat and we could get into trouble.  Mom got into her stubborn mode and refused to budge.  She stated her point that CowKitty was very happy here and us girls were getting used to him.

Dad went over to CowKitty’s parents and was upset by the condition the backyard was in…..total neglect. He decided CowKitty would be better off with us. So the next challenge would be to get him inside, CowKitty, not dad..he was still quite spooked. Lucky for mom Ellen of 15 and Meowing helped by giving her tips on what to do. Finally, mom pulled out CowKitty’s cheese with mice in it and he walked over to it in the house.

August the 18th was when CowKitty started to live with us. That night was horrible because CowKitty is used to running wild at any time of the night so he yelled his head off. Nobody got any sleep that first night. Next day mom and dad made up an area in the basement with the house from outside, water and dry crumble and a kitty litter tray. They were going to shut the door and have him stay in the basement until he got used to the arrangements.  That night CowKitty went down to the basement of his own accord and slept in the house from outside.                                                 It was very difficult to keep CowKitty away from the windows as his old parents were popping over to see if we’d seen CowKitty.  They gave us their new phone #.                                               Thanks to Ellen we got a calming collar for CowKitty and he relaxed.  Think mom and dad needed a calming collar too.

Then dad was bringing in veggies from my garden and CowKitty snuck outside and was gone.  Mom was heart-sick.  An hour later CowKitty was laying on the bench so mom opened the door and in he ran right to the tunnel.                                                  

Mom phoned and made an appointment for CowKitty at the vet to get checked over, shots and cut the fur back in his private areas. Meanwhile, CowKitty’s parents were asking us if we saw him…dad was shaking his head.

After being with us a week…CowKitty ran out when mom came in from the garden. He never came back. Mom looked and looked for him but no sign of him. The only thing we can think of is that his parents found him and took him to the new house. They must have wondered who put the calming collar on him.

This is our story of CowKitty. I looked for him for many days even going out on the deck and looking over to his old house. I’m afraid he is gone. We all feel sad and hope to see him one day.

As a side note, mom went to the SPCA…just in case CowKitty was captured by the Humane Society.  Mom looked all through the cages and no CowKitty so mom left them with CowKitty’s description and they will call her if he shows up.

Let’s Sashay Through Thursday

COW KITTY…..GREEN

C’mon mom let’s go into the basement.  No, NO…I don’t need the granny tiger vest.  I become as slow as a granny kitty.  Cwap!  If you insist.  You have to catch me first…woohoo.                                                                  aashokkslismzmcr  Cwap!  Kali, you lost too much weight….mom found me.  It couldn’t be the bright orange tiger vest on your back that gave you away, is it?  Alright, alright,  I’ll go downstairs…where’s the treats first.  Yuck…bewaa …..where are the tasty ones that our friends gave us?                                                                         aashokbasement1                                                                             aashokbasement2I see them!!  Get ready, here I come.

aashokbasementMmmmm…these are the yummy treats.  Let’s keep going mom.  Thanks mom…they taste way better than the cwappy ones that are good for me.

aashokbasement4Oh look, dad hid your wagon down here.  We have to get some water proving on it before Spring.  Will we grow vegetables in here or flowers?  A sweet potato vine crawling up the handle would be so cool, as long as Cow Kitty doesn’t climb it.

aashokwagon2See the dead bodies to your left.  Those are our outside animals hibernating till Spring.  Had ya going, didn’t I?

Meanwhile up on the Poop Deck.                                                                  aakalisleepAwww…feels so good to stretch out on a soft bed.  What the….Cow Kitty get out of my bedroom!  How rude!!  I’m not prepared for visitors.  *Cow Kitty slides across the floor in his haste to leave the bedroom.*                                                                     aackzm

Here I’m protected and it feels so good to roll around in the tunnel.

aakalickdoneCow Kitty…oh Cow Kitty, where are you?  I haven’t finished telling you off Shh…don’t let her know I’m here.                                                                              aakalicksmMancats!!  For nips sake.  I swear not a lick of thinking just doing on his part. MOL

Follow Through And a Great Idea

Mom and I weighed in this morning to start my, what would it be…it’s not a diet but a being conscious of how much I eat.  I know, this will be My SHOKO ALERT.  We only have to weigh in once a week. Then mom and I headed downstairs for my exercise wearing my tiger vest.  Well, mom headed down to the basement, I was very slow and followed 10 minutes later.  I mince along like a little old lady in a hurry.  Dad laughed at me…..I was so embarrassed….I gave him the evil eye like only I can do.

After our jaunt about the basement we headed upstairs.  Well, mom headed upstairs and I slowly followed.  It was time for Kali’s ointment for the patch of fur she’s scratched out.  Mom this is a really bad picture.  You should take a picture BEFORE you put the ointment on.  Now it looks like a wet and messy part of her fur.  Actually the bare spot is about the size of 4 silver dollars.  It’s a big patch.                                                                           kalibareskinKali was very good and even rolled on the side so she couldn’t scratch the bare patch.                                                                     kalizm

It’s very cold here again. The water outside is starting to freeze except on one side so the hotel clients can still get water. Not much of a sign of cats nor peeps.

Keep bundled up my friends and see ya on the flip side of cold.

May your ducks be in a row and your…

Hey Shoko…..I just heard Nellie’s been sick, really ill.  What?  My Nellie….the queen of The Cat From Hell?  Geez, how is she now, Kali?  I think she is a bit better.  What can we do for our fellow Canuck that will cheer her up?  I know Kali….how about if we have her up for a visit?  It’s awful cold up here, Shoko.  She’s certainly not used to the cold anymore what with living in the banana belt of BC.  We can keep her warm inside and I know she’d love to see the hotel guests.  She can hiss or stick out her tongue at them.  It’ll be fun.  We have to ask her mom first Shoko and then do whatever her mom thinks is right.  Let’s call Nellie and tell her of our plan.

RRRRRRINGGGGG

Hello?  Is this you, Nellie…The Cat From Hell’s queen?                                                              aacellphoneshokIt’s mes.  This must be Shoko from the north?  Ya, MOL.  How are you feelin’ Nellie?  Mes is better but not on top of things. We even got a picture of you here on the phone. You are lookin’ real good to us girlfriend. Kali is with me and we wanted to know how you feel about visiting with us for a bit?  Mes never been way up there.  Mes want to go visit you and Kali.  I must tell mom but she’ll want to know how we’ll get there.  I have a magic carpet which makes the ride in seconds.  You won’t have the chance to get cold.                                                            nandphoneMes excited but mommy must be told and it depends on her.  I’ll ask her tonight Shoko and let you know.  Sounds good Nellie.  Really build it up Nellie so she’ll feel guilty saying no.  You know, use the tricks you taught me in Cat From Hell classes.  MOL, good memory Shoko.  Tuttees Shoko…Ring my chimes Nellie…MOL..Mew later.

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

NELLIE…..GREEN

May the vet never earn a Loonie out of you.

Sunday Selfies with Shoko

The Cat on my HeadHere it is Sunday already.  Time for the Sunday Selfies with our awesome blog hop host The Cat On My Head.  After admiring my selfie….visit the others and see which want to pose and which ones are flyin’ by the seat of their furs.

Today I am the stand in for Kali who is kinda spacy and wishes to be left alone with her tiara.

Mom ordered me a vest instead of my harness seeing I was able to rid myself of the harness in very little time.  I got a tiger type vest and mom placed me in it and…..nothing happened.  I would not move.                                                             aaashokovest3I don’t like this!  It feels more secure and there’s no wiggle room.  I look like a wee tiger with a big head.

I guess we’re going to have to practice in the basement again.  I was quite happy with the harness.

Treats?  Ahhh…I’m not movin’.  I don’t care for those treats anyway.  Put some good ones down and we’ll mew.                                                                         aashokovest2

May your selfie reflect the REAL you.

Lazy Day in Fort Meezer

It was a cold day today.  The wind was whistlin’ around the house.  Kali and I went outside for a New York minute.  I’ve heard this is a very short minute and that was us after breakfast.  So, what to do?  We usually go out and enjoy the fresh air…we don’t give a cwap for the fresh air that’s out their today.  I sat and helped mom at the computer.                                                  DSCN4341Just thought I’d help ya, mom.  Aww….did you know there’s a catnip sack here?  Is this just for me?                                                                              DSCN4011What do you mean I’m not helping.  I thought I was….you didn’t want that catnip sack taking up room…I could have taken it off your paws, mom.

Goody, we get to play in the basement….I’m ready!  Oh no, I have to wear this contraption again.

DSC_0743Hmmm, if it means we get to play….OK.  Meet you in the basement.  Woohoo.

Kali was also busy trying to help mom.

DSCN4486Kali made sure the Kitty Litter tray smelled clean.  Mom carried Kali and the Kit Lit tray into the laundry room for a kit lit refill.                                                                    DSCN4326We were beat after helping out, so decided a nap was called for.  Notice the box mom found for us. It was my turn to sleep in it.
