Sparks of Happiness

Hey Tyebe, what’s this supposed to be?  Budd, it’s mice in cheese.   It don’t look like no cheese I’ve ever seen.  You have to use your imagination, Budd.                                                   

The mice are comin’ out of the cheese but don’t get your face too close or the mice will poke you in the eye.  Mean little boogers, aren’t they?  Mol *hic*  The mice keep us on our claws so we pay attention to our game.  I’d rather have real mice and cheese.

What’re you two scallywags doing?                                            

Tyebe’s teaching me the joys of plastic cheese and mean mice.  She says I can’t eat the cheese and the mice will peck my eye out if I get too close.  Really Tyebe, this is not fun!

You wanna play with me’s pepper, Budd?                                                      

Whacha do with a pepper, Tyebe? I’s play with it, throw it in the air and catch it.  Does it taste good? Tastes like my spit. Ohhhh…you can have it then.

Let’s think positive Budd.  It’s a Sparks Monday today and we all need a boost to start the week.  Annie of McGuffy’s Reader started Sparks and even though she is taking a break right now, we decided to light a candle and show some people the way into a fine Monday.                                                                   

There you are….happiness. A great way to light up the day.

Shopping Around The World in July

Aww…tis time for our recipe for a sandwich.  A tasty sandwich says Bacon of Piglove and Shopping Around the World.                                            

We decided on her open-faced bagel sandwich. Mom says it’s tasty and fast.

Alright, here is the recipe.

OPEN-FACED BAGEL SANDWICH

INGREDIENTS:

2 thin slices of mild onion..cupboard
2 small kale leaves……..in garden
dab of mayo…………….fridge
dab of butter…………….cupboard
dab of mustard………….cupboard
1 bagel………………….from Superstore $1.98

4 cheese slices………….. $4.48 for 16 slices                                       

75 grams Black Forest Ham, shaved…$2.97

2 Slices of one tomato, vine-ripened …approximately $1.39

2 tablespoons cream cheese on top of the sandwich.

$3.18

DIRECTIONS:

Cut bagel in half for 2 slices.  Spread butter, mayo and mustard on each side of the bagel.  Then put the small kale leaf and 2 cheese slices on each bagel half.  The hole is covered so nothing will fall through.  Divide your meat between the bagel halves, topping with a slice of tomato each and thin slice of mild sweet onion and finally a very generous tablespoon of cream cheese.                                                                 

There you have it. The perfect meal for a hot day.

Me’s would like Fancy feast beef with a tad of nip on the side.

Remember my friends, stay hydrated as much as possible. We try our best to be full of water here, in fact, Shoko and me’s call mom Mrs. Peealot. mol *hic*

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.

Shopping and Cooking Around the World

 

Bacon, of Piglove,  is having his Shopping Around the World blog hop today and we thought we would honour him by cooking a snack with no meat.  Teddy of Two Spoiled Cats is the guest host for this month so we applaud Teddy for taking on the duty.  *apaws* *apaws*  We decided this was a great idea.                                                  Our snack is a warm and a fun food….no cares, no worries.  The only things that lost their lives ….oh, oh!  What Shoks?  What did YOU do wrong?  This snack has meat….bacon to be exact.  How could you Shoko…..poor Bacon…you’re cooking him!  The poor guy.  I feel terrible Kali.  You should…maybe we can get around it.  We’ll call it, um, nocab.  Gotcha!

Today we are making CHEESE AND NOCAB-STUFFED PEPPERS  This is a snack you can make and cook in 30 seconds…I mean minutes, 30 minutes.  Mom can make it up quickly cause dad keeps eating them.  So she’s getting lots of practice.

INGREDIENTS

10 jalapeno or banana peppers…$0.27 each fresh
2 slices of nocab….$5.28…500 grams No Name
3 tablespoons cream cheese…$2,88 No Name
2 tablespoons of fresh mint…$1.98 President’s Choice

DIRECTIONS

Seed peppers. Cook nocab slices until crispy. Finely chop or rip them up. Stir cream cheese with chopped mint. Stuff peppers with cream cheese mixture and top with nocab pieces. Broil on a baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes.

                                                  You could have softened the cream cheese Shoko, crap!  My paws are getting cramps and I broke a nail.

 

This is it for the recipe.  You will notice mom has more than 3 tablespoons of cream cheese…this is because she’s cheating and adding more cream cheese with green onions and nocab…a little summer savoury for additional flavour.  I urge you to first try the recipe and then experiment.

The peppers are from our garden and so different sizes.

Hope you enjoy our snacks.

Have a memorable day…meow it up!                                                     

Artsy Fartsy Caturday with Kali

Athena, that wild and creative gal is having another Artsy Caturday and I decided to join in on the parade.  Do pop by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog and see what the artsy world has done to our friends. MOL                                                         daisykali-2heow-1jo-normalA big hug and a thank you to Dezi and Raena’s mom from DeziWorld for making this picture possible.

Cow Kitty was over for a visit today.  He slept out on the bench for a long time.  Finally he came in and played with our cheese and mice.                               aacksmcr

After he rough housing with the cheese…knocked it across the dining room floor and then played in the tunnel, he wanted to go home.  Cow Kitty very seldom talks but when mom let him out, he softly mewed at her.  Then he headed toward his home.

Have a fine weekend my pals.                                                      sistersinarmsfall

Shokzilla Spreads Her Paws

Whoa, it’s getting right chilly up here.  I don’t feel like wandering around very much.  Not unless mom comes with me.

Kali and morphine do not agree.  She is off of the med and is eating again.  She doesn’t seem to be limping as badly as when she was on it.  We want to find a med that is more natural to her body.                                                                                      aaakalibag1I’m holding onto this bag….it smells like cheese and…..and BEEF.  MOL

While Kali was protecting an empty bag.  I decided to play Shokzilla in my hideaway.

aaashokotent1The attack came from within the hideaway….I tore at the interloper.

Soon the attack moved out and inside my mouth!                                                                                                                         aapounceI got ya, suckeh…you’s all mine!  You pink terror.                                                              aapounceblurI was movin’ so fast that the camera went blurry.  Gotcha!  Shokzilla strikes again.

Now, to mellow out watching my favourite show, “The Big Bang Theory.”  I sure can relate to Sheldon…he should get more respect.  I don’t think he’s demanding, do you?

What happened….no picture!   MOM!  What did you do?  Pull yourself together….you have a cold…that’s it.  Now where’s the picture of moi watching my show…awww….better.                                                                            aaaaashoktvMay the hands of time be welded together and you never age my friend.                                                                          SHOKOKALI2
