You’ll never guess what happened on Friday. I was just lying around trying to get comfy after my afternoon snack and the doorbell rang.
I watched to see who it was at the door.Naturally, Shoko ran into the bedroom like the big chicky she is.
Well, for heaven’s sake what is it? It’s for me!! It’s a Princess Bed, all my own,
I want my blue blanket in with me, mom. It keeps me warm.
See, I’m kneading the back of the Princess Bed….I’m very happy.
Where is Shoko, I want to show her the new bed….my new bed.
I see Kali. Wasn’t that nice of mom….it’s obviously yours, I can’t think of another princess around here. ♪ I gotta be me!♪
Cwap…I gotta get outta here!
Does it ever feel good to sleep beside mom again in our bed. No rocks under my back or sticks digging into my legs when I lay out. Did you miss me, Kali? No…well maybe a wee bit. It seemed so quiet without you rushing up and down the hall with your thunder-paws or balancing on the banister.
Well, I just gotta be me, Kali.
On with my tail of summer camp. To even go to summer camp we needed to make a Bowline Knot and show it to Denmaster along with our letter of Purrmission from mom.
My Bowline Knot
Our signed letter of purrmission.
We made a tye dyed scarf for our moms. I loved playing in the dyes but Denmaster made us use gloves so we wouldn’t turn our paws all sorts of colours. I worked on that scarf for hours and then dried it and made the colour set so it wouldn’t rub off on mom’s neck.
Mom loves it and is wearing it now. It looks pretty on her.
Later that afternoon we went on a nature walk with our guide Homer the Black Cat. He showed us so many birds….it was amazing. The Stellar’s Jay is British Columbia’s provincial bird and also a regular at Yosemite. It’s a beautiful bird. As far as bird’s go, that is.
The only other bird that blew me away was the California Peregrine Falcon. His body is about the size of a crow’s body but his wing span can be over 4 ft. Holy birdman…..that is huge! He goes like stink too, when he’s trying to catch prey….over 200 mph! Never want to get on his bad side.
The next day there was a S’mores competition. I entered some Nanaimo Bars because they are Canada’s answer to S’mores. I didn’t win but was delighted for the mancat that did win, he’s in my patrol and is an excellent cook.
Maggie and I had a very nice tent overlooking the river. Only thing was I kept having to visit the dirt patch and do my duty as the river kept the water running with me too. MOL
There was a poetry workshop where we learned the different types of poems. We all submitted 3 poems. There were 3 winners and I was one of them. I won a Cat Scouts notebook. Wowee!!
Then the Knowlege Bowl about the things we’ve seen and done at Summer Camp. The fellow cat that won is also in our patrol. He is very smart. Almost Siamese smart but not quite.
Then something happened….I will tell you tomorrow. It kept me on my claws.
I’m going to be an artistic devil today. Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty, is continuing with her artsy blog hop this week. Go have a peek at your anipals in odd artistic backgrounds. Have a few laughs to start your day.
MOM…..RED VIOLET Kali decided she wanted to do Sunday Selfie so I get the fun artistic picture. Mom and I chose a picture mom took this morning while I was helping her make the bed. We do have chores. No free lunch in this abode.
Mom, are you and dad going somewhere for a vacation this year? We are Shoko. You’re going to leave us alone? No, of course not! Judy the petsitter is going to stay here while we’re away. Really? That will be so much nicer than being here alone with Kali. She works during the day doesn’t she? She does Shoko. Good….I mean we need some private time too. How long will you be gone? A little over two weeks Shoko. When I come back ‘ll have a few treats for you and Kali. Say that sounds cool!
Kali, do you know that this is the day the Elf on the Shelf appears. Oh no, he’s a little psycho….I never know how to take him. What’s his name again? Elfin John! I heard rattling in mom’s nightie drawer, shall we take a peek? OK…let’s see if the strange little guy is awake. He’s waking up Shoko. Shall we close the drawer? No, he’d probably just kick until mom opened the drawer and then he’d leap out at her…scare the friggin’ stuffing out of her. Geez, how did he get on the bed so fast! Quick little weirdo aren’t you? What did you call me you, you…..beady eyed, candy cane legged freak! And so it begins…..Elfin John is loose in the house until Christmas.
This is also Selfie Sunday with The Cat on My Head so we are joining the line to get on her site. So come visit us and our anipals there with one click on the hosting blog. A joke for you my friends. What kind of bread do elves make sandwiches with?
Why, shortbread of course.
Ellen from 15 and Meowing made the first two fill-ins while Ann of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the last two fill-ins. A big thank you to our co-hosts of the fill-ins.
1. The first thing I check when I go online is…..MY GAME AND THEN MY MAIL. MOM ALWAYS WANTS HER CUPPA TEA FIRST BUT I WANT TO PLAY CRIMINAL CASE AND THEN SEE WHO WROTE TO KALI AND I.
2. My signature dish is …..FANCY FEAST BEEF FLAVOUR. I LOVE IT. KALI IS MORE OF AN ANYTHING GOES GIRL WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD. 3. My Halloween night is usually…..SPENT PLAYING CWAPS WITH KALI UNDER THE BED. 4. Trick or treaters …..ARE LOUD. RING THE DOORBELL MANY TIMES, YELL AT MOM AND THEN, YOU KNOW, SHE GIVES THEM CANDY! SHE WOULDN’T GIVE US TREATS IF WE DID THESE THINGS. THESE TRICK OR TREATERS DRESS FUNNY TOO…..SCARY LOOKING OR SOMETIMES PRINCESS’S. IT’S LIKE A STORY COME TO LIFE, ALL NIGHT LONG.
I got a joke for you. What do you get when you cross Bambi with a ghost?
