Fridays…Fancy Fill-Ins from Us

Mew, mew…Kali, what are you doing in my Pillow Tent?                                                

Go away Shoko, I’m sleeping!

Naha! This is my space and you didn’t even mew at me….you just got nice and comfy.

Alright, geez, bet she doesn’t even want to be in there just can’t stand me being peaceful.

Much better now let’s get busy with the Friday Fill-Ins co-hosted by Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie of Mcguffy”s Reader.                                                                                                       I will take the first 2 sentences while Kali will look after the last 2 sentences.


NO PICTURE…mom’s usually too busy cleaning up the water.

2 My favorite fast food restaurant is…..”MOM’S DINER “….. AT TREAT TIME.                                                      My turn, fuzz face.  I’m ticked at you Shoks.  There was no need to kick me out of the Pillow Tent.  Anywho….
3. If I could go to any concert of someone still performing, it would be …..THE JINGLE CATS.  THEY ARE AWESOME!                                                     

4. My Winter pastime is usually…..NAPPING, because …..IT’S COLD AND I REALLY FEEL THE COLD.                                                   

There you have it, our fill-ins for the week.

Sunday Selfie With Shoko/ Welcome Teddy Kimmel


The Cat on My Head is having it’s selfie Sunday today and we were torn as to what to post.  I know…pictures of us…OK but doing what?  We could be eating, sleeping playing smacky paw or generally laying out like ladies by the names of Muckety and Muck.  Decisions, decisions.


Mom changed the bed but Shoko would not get out from the blankets on the floor.  I dug for her and even mewed her name but nothing.                                                        aakali5Shoko my nail polish is peeling off with all this digging. Tsk..dang, I broke a nail…if you’re in there Shoks, you better come out while I’m just ticked.”                       

aakali“Are you ok Shoks?  Really Shoko….get your buns out here!”

Kali never noticed when I escaped from the blankets.  She was too busy looking at her broken nail. MOL                                                                          aashokstable1I better sneak back into the bedroom before she starts hissing at me.  What fun…mew                                                                            catonheadbdGo on over to The Cat on My Head and see your friends posing like idiots….I mean like gentle kitties. MOL  Go, tell them how wonderful they look…boost their confidence.

We also are celebrating the addition of Teddy to the Kimmel family.                                                             welcome-teddy-k-pizap-com14869240629731

There were many famous peeps named Teddy. There was Teddy Roosevelt, Teddy Kennedy. Ted(dy) Danson, Ted(dy) Knight, Ted(dy) Turner, Ted Koppel and Ted(dy) Bundy, Ted(dy) Kaczynski but these two last guys are rotten Teds so they’re throwin’ out the door with the bath water.
Does this little guy look somewhat like his big brother Angel Sammy or what? I think these boys will become the Daunting Duo, like Batman and Robin.  Drop by Two Spoiled Cats and Dory’s Backyard  look at the other blogs in the blog hop.


We welcome you to Blogville Teddy.  We all over you any help or giggles you’ll ever need.                                                      sammykMay your pawsteps always be soft and your voice gentle.                                                                              sistersinarmswinter


A November To Remember

A lovely day today.  The sun is playing across the sky but the wind is strong and quite fresh.  A lovely day for a stroll.

November and we can actually walk on the sidewalks without slippin’ in the snow.  Can life be any better than this?  Look, our Alpine Willy Clematis is mixed up and there are a few blossoms.                                                                  aaalpwilcrzmA blossom in November. Never seen this before.

Mom and I are headed to the nearest pet store.  It’s a very windy day and the wind is making my coat stand up.  Refreshing!!

aakalistroll♫ Rolling around in my auto wheels.  My pink Fur-ari.♫

Mom was getting tired pushing against the wind.  We stopped at the new industrial development and mom relaxed.

aakalismstFrom Gateway we went into the pet store.  No pictures here.  They gave me some kitties treats.  I was famished and grabbed onto one.  Immediately I spit it out.  Ewwww…it was gross.  Don’t ever buy these mom….awful.  Mom asked what they were.  The clerk said those were freeze dried chicken livers.  We won’t be getting those anytime soon.

Mom got a few Christmas presents and we were out of there.

I settled down after those yucky treats and we headed home.  As we got closer to the house, mom and I heard some hammering and sawing coming from the garage.  Dad was hard at work building something.                                                                        aackhome1What is it dad?  It’s going to be a house for Cow Kitty so he can stay warm during the winter.

What if he doesn’t like it and won’t go near it….what will we do?  Let’s try him with it first Shoko.

aackhousecrThis is where the house will stay for the winter.  Here comes Cow Kitty.                                                             aackhousezm

I think he likes it.                                                                            aackhomeSo far so good.  I can’t think of something for the door….we need warmth in the house but not to frighten Cow Kitty or make him feel trapped.  Should we have clear plastic, a towel or something else.  Please we would like your ideas of how to improve the house.

Busy day today.

May your boyfriend never hiss and tell.

An Interview With Ling-Ling Odboddy

We have a treat for our friends today.  An interview with Ling-Ling, the beautiful Siamese cat from Elaine Faber’s series on Mrs. Agnes Odboddy.  The first book is called : Mrs. Odboddy:  Hometown Patriot.  This lady is so sweet and harmless looking but watch out citizens of Newbury.                                                                         aaaling-lingspeaks Ling- Ling, what a unique name.  What does it mean? Who really knows? It could mean, ‘who put broccoli in my bowl?’ Or, ‘someone is sleeping in my chair.’ A rose by any other name… Mrs. Odboddy can call me anything, as long as she calls me to dinner…

 From my understanding, it wasn’t your choice to live with Agnes Odboddy.  What was your first reaction when you met Mrs. Odboddy? Agnes rescued me when Lily Jengu and her family went to the Japanese Internment Camp. My first thought was relief that I wouldn’t be homeless. Second thought was, no more sushi and fish soup. Now, I’d have to eat ox tails and kidneys. I had no idea cow innards were so tasty.

What kind of lovin’ does Mrs. Odboddy give?  She seems so busy searching for Nazi spies and evil plots against the war effort, one must wonder if her cream still rises to the top. Mrs. Odboddy isn’t exactly the ‘lovin’ type.’ She is too busy rolling bandages, collecting cans, volunteering at the Ration Office and on the Coast Watch or chasing bad guys.  

 What happened with those chickies?  Is it true you jumped in and killed a chicken?  You, a beautiful cross-eyed Siamese would kill a chicken?  What happened to it? Now, I ask you? What self-respecting Siamese killing-machine would allow six chickens to reside in the bathroom and not perpetrate a Black-Ops mission? Of course I snagged one of the feathered fowl. I would have eaten it too, except Agnes’s boyfriend took it away from me and put it in the garbage can. What a waste!

Ling-Ling, did you find Agnes Odboddy’s weird lifestyle grew on you and you woke up wondering what would happen today? She certainly kept my head spinning. Agnes was involved with the doings at the First Church of the Evening Star and Everlasting Light, volunteered for every imaginable war effort, and tried to expose conspiracies. There was no telling what she might do on any given day. And, should I tell you about the day. Mrs. Roosevelt came to a funeral in town? Oh my goodness, didn’t that turn into a fiasco? How could I possibly keep up?

 Do you get treats Ling-Ling?  I know there is a war going on and Mrs. Odboddy uses her ration book for the popular items such as sugar and coffee but what about bacon or something as good….does she share with you? I don’t think I’ve ever tasted bacon. I get lots of cream. That’s the thick stuff that separates from the milk and comes to the top in the milk jug. It’s real yummy. Agnes says that’s why I have such beautiful blue eyes and soft fur. Maybe when the war is over, I’ll learn about bacon. Until then, if your friends want to know more about me, Agnes and her lovely granddaughter, Katherine, they can buy the e-book, Mrs. Odboddy – Hometown Patriot, at Amazon for $3.99. I think they’d like us.



May your chicken never mate with a cement  mixer.  You don’t need to raise  a brick layer.
