Another Friday has rolled around. It was a pretty good week. No more snow and mild temperature of -5C. This we can take and actually enjoy. Mom’s birthday was yesterday so she went grocery shopping with dad. We liked that. She got us our favourite Fancy Feast wet food and threw in some Friskies for a change in diet.
First, we must tell you the most exciting news we know and the event is happening today. Buddy Budd of Tomcat Commentary by Tim turns 20 today. MY mouse and a half, that is ancient! His family is throwing him a Birthday Party over on the family blog, we are sneaking out and heading over after we do the fill ins. We have whistles so help yourselves and have a jolly good time at this special celebration. I am going to be with Einey playing with his toys from Christmas. Gee, I hope I don’t break any. I’ll be careful.
1. My favorite quote is…….”GOT MILK”……..CAUSE I DON’T LIKE MILK AND YOU CAN KEEP IT!
2. My favorite part of February is….THE LAST DAY…..WHETHER THAT IS THE 27TH OR 28TH. I’D RATHER BE SUNNING MYSELF ON THE BEACH.
3. A little known fact about me is…..I LIKE WEARING HATS. SH…..DON’T TELL ANYONE.
4. OWNING CATS……. is the most rewarding experience in the world.
We decided to take mom’s chicken wings to Buddy’s birthday party. Mom used secret herbs on the coating and she used lots of herbs. Yummy!! Notice the white mouse. His name is Gus.
Gus has no ears or tail anymore. His life is a rowdy one. The poor guy has never been the same since I gave him a bath.
Poor guy just dropped his ears and then I bit his tail off. He used to run automatically but after a dose of water, he just quit trying.
SHOKO…..BLACK TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE BUDD……GRASS GREEN MOM…….MAROON
We almost forgot. This blog hop, Photo Fails, comes around once a month and we love it. This is our opportunity to show the weird pictures mom takes and then thinks they’ll be lovely….NOT SO MOTHER MAGOO! Roby Sweet started this unique blog hop and since she left us, Mochas, Mysteries & Meows has carried the tradition onward.
This is our entry for the month.
Mom was trying to show me looking at Juno out on her deck but one can’t tell what it is and if she made it bigger I would be outta the picture.
A sad day here at Fort Meezer. We helped Kali to the Rainbow Bridge. Kali was on my lap when she passed. Her head was resting in my hand. The transition was very smooth and quick. I will write more when life seems more settled.
KALI; We’re saying goodbye to 2017. We did it, ladies! We made it. This calls for a fancy drink and a toast to ladies so crotchety, we refuse to be pushed out-of-the-way.
SARABI; How about a Vine Wine….you know silvervine. It makes your paws tingle. I want tingly paws today. We deserve it.
ALLIE; You are so right Sabrina…all for Vine Wine raise your paws. I see Amber, Binga, Binky, Ali, Sasha, Lily Olivia, Madi, and Kit. We have a majority ladies.
KALI; Before we clink our bowls together, I have a story to tell you….it’s true too.
MADI; Ok, Kali but our bowls are calling to us so let’s not get long-winded like you can at times.
This story concerns our very own protector, Buddy the Blue Russian Enforcer.
This is Buddy’s 10th Gotcha Day. Yep, 10 Gotcha Days with his family. He was 8 when he was adopted by his dad. The whole transfer was very hush-hush. His dad met an anonymous character at “Dunkin Donuts” at 9pm NewYear’s Eve. They exchanged words and the fellow showed our Buddy. Buddy was so big he had to be carried in a dog carrier….20 pounds! No doubt Buddy was big from sending out orders in the Blue Russian Mafia. Makes one wonder. Bud Bud has slimmed down and gone straight.
We raise…no, the bowls are too heavy. We slide our bowls together for a clink to our own Buddy and the upcoming year. KALI; Just push the duckies out of the way and have a grand sip of Vine Wine.
Everyone slides the wine into each other, pushes the duckie aside and yells… “To our Buddy!”
Have a wonderful New Year.
GIANT PS….Mom screwed up and put our Crotchety Cougars https://crotchetycougarsblog.wordpress.com/ in The Canadian Cats. We are sorry…last screw up of 2017…we hope.
You got the shovel Kali? What for Shoko? Well, we gotta dig a hole to get mom into…..this is going to take a while. What are you doing with that trowel…we need real shovels that can dig lotsa dirt at one time. We’ll be digging from now till winter with a trowel. I don’t like this Shoko….we’ll never get mom to go sit in a hole…..while we throw dirt at her. Then she’s going to be annoyed and we won’t see treats for some time to come. Hmm…you got a point ghosty sister of mine. Let’s just forget it till we have a better plan.
Another Fryday with another Fill-In from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. These two gals think up two sentences each for us to fill in. The first two are from 15 and Meowing and the last two are from McGuffy’s Reader. Pretty clever, eh?
I made a fort between the pillows in bed….I’m comfy how bout you?
1. A recurring dream I have is….. THAT BUDDY VISITS ON A BEAUTIFUL HORSE AND WE GO RIDING IN THE BACK LANE. OH MY I’M GETTING EXCITED….He is gorgeous! Buddy is fromTomcat Commentary by TimLook at those basket eyes…hehehe….I love em so much I could rip some of his furs out to take to my basket and dream of him I. On second thought we don’t need the horse. We’d probably use our claws to get up on the horse and the horse would bolt….leaving us on our heads on the ground. MOL
2. Turn…..HYPOALLERGENIC WET FOOD….. into …..DELI ROAST TURKEY….. AND I’D BE A HAPPY CAMPER.Mom does her best to get me to eat and sometimes I’m absolutely fascinated by the lengths she’ll go to and I absent- mindedly eat the slop.
My turn Kali….I must express myself before I burst. MOL
3. CAPPY-TAN….. is driving me crazy! He waits outside our door for one of us to come outside, He even sings to us. Myself, I think he’s not neutered and is ready to get his MEW off.
4. Lately, I have been….HAPPY TO STAY AROUND THE BACKYARD AND INVESTIGATE BUGS IN THE GARDEN…… a stroll is wonderful when the weather is beautiful and warm but when the wind’s howling, the backyard with the six foot fence is the place to play.
There you have it my friends, our opinions on today’s fill-ins.
Strictly the views of the occupants of Fort Meezer.
No…I don’t want to go! Take Shoko instead. I was dreaming of my boyfriend Buddy Budd from the blog Timmy’s Commentary. His fur is so shiny and soft. He makes me feel like a kitten. *sigh* No!….Mom did anyone tell you how rude you can be? I feel great…..see my leg even moves well. Dang….you just keep insisting…
This car sways too much. I’m being reminded of my ancestors in Thailand while they worked on the boats. It was very hard work but their singing eased the burden. ♫Mew, mew meeeewwww……meeeoooooowww♫
That was a quick trip….guess my ancestors were right and singing eases trying times.
If I shut my eyes she can’t see me…that’s what Shoko says. I’ll try it and hide my face for good measure.It didn’t work, she’s poking me!! Get your stubby little fingers away from my dainty bod. I weigh how much? I’ve lost a pound? Whoopee! Just like a real model….I’m skinny. I’d like to thank all the peeps involved in my weight loss….thank you mom for serving small portions and food I wouldn’t touch with a dead mouse. You are the prime peep responsible. She’s saying this is bad? No it isn’t. A pound is like 10 pounds for a peep? I promise I won’t lose more…please…please don’t put me on some disgusting diet. Whoa, that was close and no pukey food to gain weight. All else is good with me. See, I told ya mom.
Mom and I will do this Fill In for Ellen of 15 and Meowingand Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. This is also a blog hop so go to McGuffy’s Reader and see what your friends have to say.
KALI…..ORANGE MOM…RED VIOLET
. My favorite cereal is…..LUCKY CHARMS. The different colors make me feel happy and they taste fantabulous.
2. My prom….. WAS NOT MEMORABLE AND NOT WORTH DISCUSSING SO WE WON’T. WELL, TRUTH TIME I NEVER WENT TO A PROM.
3. The …..MAJOR….. thing about …..OREGANO….. IS TO REALIZE THAT THE TASTIER AND MILDER LEAVES ARE THE YOUNG WEE ONES. THE OLDER ONES ARE TOO STRONG FOR US KITTIES WITH SENSITIVE PALATES. SO POKE ABOUT IN THE REGANO AND FIND THE SMALLEST LEAVES AND CHOW DOWN.
4. I cannot help….. MYSELF,….. but …..THE MOMENT I HEAR BUDDY BUDD’S VOICE THE FUR ON THE BACK OF MY NECK STANDS UP.
Have a great Friday and remember Saturday is around the corner so get ready to pawta with us.
It’s Friday and time for our favourite game, Fill-Ins, or as Kali and I call it, * Telling it Like It is.* We must thank 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader for hosting such a fun post. It’s my turn to fill-in the blank areas. So these are my thoughts and don’t reflect Shoko’s desires or wants in any way. There you go Shoko, a personal disclaimer. Now, time for our fill-ins:
1. Getting used to these stairs was easier than I expected
2. Bucket list: 1. I want to eat bacon 2. Take a walk with mom in the Lane. 3. Win a game of smacky paw with Shoko.
3. I cannot believe that med can make me feel like a kid again.
4. If I could fly, I would visit Buddy at his house
Have a great weekend and may your supper never bite you back.
That’s right I’m still on strike against ‘unfair labour practices’ by mom. I’m only on strike over the gross way I’m treated on artsy fartsy day. So Caturdays are picket days…the rest of the week, I’m a loving and charming kit.
Kali has happily taken over and is an energetic model. However after this photo effect, she may be joining me on the picket line. Mom says she used the photo editor of Ipiccy. She used the effect Cybervision and then added a Neon Glow. Kali says she likes its uniqueness. OK, whatever, Kali. You know you look really odd…what would your boyfriend, Buddy say? Don’t use that tone with me! I know you care what Buddy thinks. Catch you later and we’ll continue our little mew.
Hey Kali, what are you gettin’ Buddy for Valentine’s Day? Gee, Shoks I was planning on making him a gift. I thought a poem about us and a pretty card would be great. I don’t know Kali, your creative ventures look like, well, like you made it . You nap too much. Don’t be rude Shoks, I do my best and Buddy will love knowing I tried my best and gave him such a unique gift. No one else will have the gift I’ll give him. I remember when I met him for the first time at your 7th Gotcha Party Shoks. I was so excited and when he spoke to me, I felt like a school girl.
I could tell Buddy felt the same way about me. He was so strong and handsome laying there with such handsome blue furs. Shoko how did you and Einstein meet? Well, Einey and I had known each other for a long time in Cat Scouts and we always had fun together. Timmy and Einstein were regulars at the pawties in Cat Scouts and our relationship just blossomed from there. So we were friends first and then we found we were even more attracted to each other.
We make such a cute couple. What a guy I have. So what are you going to give him Shoko? Something from the heart or a more elaborate store bought gift. Iwanted to give him a mouse…I found a nest under some snow when the snow started to melt. How would I get it to him? He lives in Pennysill-vainia. Mom says that is very far from here. I believe mom too. We have a town named Penny up here but the town and the peeps/cats are not vain. I never thought of that Shoks but do you think everybody in Pennysill-vainia is vain. No way is Einey or Buddy vain so I doubt anybody else in the family is…although Miss Fitz might be a tad vain but then she is very pretty so maybe she has reason. Let’s face it she has so many brothers she deserves a perk now and again. I’ll have to keep thinking about a gift Kali. What are your preparations for Valentine’s Day my friends? Is there someone special in your life? A cat that has all the right moves.
You ready for this Kali? Well, no! Look at all the snow out there and mom wants us to try on a bikini? What’s her problem? *lick* *lick*…maybe she doesn’t have enough to do. I haven’t been throwing kitty litter all over the bathroom for awhile. Have you barfed lately Kali? Gosh no Shoks…..you think we should start acting up. *lickity*The foods been pretty high class lately and if you start barfing mom may just put both of us on your Hypoallergenic Soy HP. We don’t want that stuff all the time so no you can keep your food down Kali.
We’ll humour mom for the time being. Getting in the bottom of this bikini is not comfortable Kali. Suck it in Shoks…MOLCwap! Mom had to let the bikini bottom out so I could fit it Kali. I’m embarrassed. I was always so skinny and now mom made it sound like I was from Blimpsville. Look she’s making the bikini bottom smaller for you Kali! Let’s see if you fit in the bottom. I guess the top is the “bik” and the bottom is the “ini.” Beautiful Kali. I’ll bet your beau Buddy Bud will love this picture.
Do you know while we’re in here posing for winter bikini shots, Cow Kitty is in playin’ with our toys. I’m trying to pretend I don’t smell the little devil. Then we don’t have to bother hissing and getting ourselves upset.
Cow Kitty was quite content to spend a couple of hours playing and snooping round the house. Then he staggered through the snow to his place.
