Buried by Friendly Friday Fill Ins

It’s time for Friendly Friday Fill Ins with our co-hosts Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.                                                        

1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to…..THE LANE.  THERE WE CAN VIEW THE WILD FLOWERS, MOUSE HUTS, OTHER FRIENDS AND MANY NAPPING SPOTS IN THE SUN.                                               

2. My favorite room in my home is…THE LIVING ROOM.  THIS IS WHERE MY CONDO IS AND I LOVE MY CONDO.  I CAN SEE OUT THE WINDOW AND TALK TO THE CROWS.                                                        

I’ll answer the last two Kali.  Thank 

you sis.

3. Back-to-school time makes me think of…SHADES OF NAIL POLISH……  YOU SEE WHILE SHOKO WENT TO VIRMIN COLLEGE, I WENT TO FINISHING SCHOOL.  SO MY EDUCATION IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN SHOKO’S.  THIS IS WHY SHOKO HAS THE MANNERS OF A PIG AT TIMES.                                                              

4. My favourite year of school was…..THE SECOND YEAR, because….. WE STARTED LEARNING ETIQUETTE.  MY WORLD CHANGED WHEN I COULD ACT LIKE A SOUTHERN BELLE BUT HAVE THE TEMPERAMENT OF A NORTHERN CANADIAN CAT.                                                         Have a great Fish Day.                                                          

Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty

Let’s move that table Kali so there’s room to dance and play, *herd of elephants*.  Crap it’s heavy Shoko!  I know but I couldn’t ask mom and dad to move it before they left. I guess not.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                                       What kinda food should we put out Shoko?  That’s no biggie Kali….we’ll put out what we like for the cats, the others may be a bit more difficult but we’ll figure it out.                                                                           Chickens, roasted with powdered nip and silvervine  stuffing.  Geez databbiesotrouttowne are not going to be pleased with a berd around.  Well, it’s not alive or pecking at them and many of our pals love chicky.  We can’t please everyone Kali, I wish we could but we’re all different

We have a dish called Sashimi.  Sashimi is used to cleanse your palette  between different courses.                                                                        Salmon fresh from the Pacific.  We had some Sockeye Salmon filets shipped in from Prince Rupert to tempt the taste buds of the fishy fanatics like YOU.  hehe

We will grill the salmon to perfection  right in front of your eyes.  For those more daring we have salmon sushi.                                                                    Wow Shoko where did you get this stuff?  It’s delicious but we didn’t have any money.  Well, the chicky was in the freezer and the salmon was sent down to us from our friends in Rupert.  We don’t have any friends in Rupert Shoko. Do you hafta be so picky Kali?  Did you do something dishonest for it Shoks?  No, I got the salmon from the freezer too.  So, you’re just a big wind bag Shoko!  Nope,  these things are perfectWhere do you think mom and dad got the salmon?  Prince Rupert?  Exactly.

We have some Green Goblin drinks for all.  The main ingredient is nip and this nip is fermented…woohoo!                                                                              

Now when our pals bring their lucky pot dishes, we’ll have a tasty set up.  Why the name lucky pot?  The police will be alerted to our activities.  Let them be!  We’re lucky to have a pot of anything from our friends.  That’s what I mean.

Gracie lent us her favourite condo playground to play and have herd of elephant games.  It’s a massive tree.

I “borrowed” 2 diffusers to play. “Name That Stink.”                                                          What do our friends win if they guess the right stink, Shoko?  Ummm…I never thought of that Kali.  What toys do you have Kali?  Toys that don’t have teeth marks in them like mine? I got a wind up mouse but I slobber on my toys.  It’s rude to give a bitten or slobbered on toy.  I know!!  Remember those straws that mom found when she went out for coffee with her friend.  You mean the ones from Starbucks and Tim Horton’s?  Exactly!  There must be 70 of them there.  Mom goes out for coffee a lot.  Those can be take home prizes.                                                      Is Nellie coming Shoko?  She figures she can sneak away for a few hours but will be home when mom goes to visit.  Nellie wouldn’t say a word about our pawty to mom, I know it.  She is the Queen of The Cat From Hell so she won’t say ,”nip.”  She can get on her cell phone and let us know when mom’s coming home.  Then we can have everything shiny and new looking.

We’re ready for a pawty.                                                         May your light shine through
the haze of nipadoodle.                                                                                       

 

Artsy Saturday

Wouldn’t you know it.  Son of a seacat. Kali was flaked out in her basket with a big smile on her face.  I was on my condo chattering at the crows.   Kali disappeared and I figured mom was giving Kali a once over like she does every now and then.  Mom came back and blabbed at me, picked me up and put me in my little cardboard box.   Kali and I were then whipped off to the vets.  Well Kali was some upset and let mom know it in no uncertain mews.  She was swearing at mom in cat mews.  I’ve never heard Kali swear but she did and let me tell you, she came up with some meows that I hadn’t heard before.  Actually I don’t know why Kali came to the vets with us.  The vet looked Kali over, took her temperature…..Kali then swore at the vet.  Then she went back in her carrier.  Perhaps she was suppose to keep me company and instead taught me swear words.  I on the other paw was subjected to a thorough exam.  Mom was chattering away like she was talking to crows and the vet was chattering back.  I then got a horrendous jab in my hip and one in my leg.  What a sadist!  Those drugs were going to kill me,my fur was standing on end.  Then  this terrible pill that was forced down my throat….no talking or cooing, just shoved in my mouth.  I was shocked by such crude behaviour so the pill slid down my throat before I could scream at the vet.

Vet Dr. Sandy Jamieson

Dr. Jamieson wasn’t our pet physician or Kali would have enjoyed seeing him. She has a crush on him but she won’t admit it. Mom forgot the camera and we had to re-post old pictures.
We came home and I told Kali about my fears of passing from this nip haven, she smacked me on the head and told me I had the same shots last year. Oh yea. I forgot. Guess I’m going to be sticking around for awhile.

Athena and Marie are having their artsy, fartsy post today so I am posing in a frame.

Hallowed Eve

Twas the night before Halloween and all through the house, a creature was stirring, I think it was a mouse.                                                              mousecropped

We were off!  The mouse tore up to the top of the condo, I went on the inside and up the window sill, landing at the platform on top of the condo.  There we stood, six inches apart and eye to eye.  Mousie faked an outside run at the window and instead  took a flying leap to the easy chair.                                                                       DSCN4462

bugeyed Shoko

Kali quit eating the kibble and rushed into the living room to help Shoko catch this devilish rodent.                                                               Kali'stailSorry Kali, didn’t mean to get the first shot of you after you saw the mouse.

sm Kali closeupThat’s much better, Kali.

Mousie assaulted the black cat on the mantel and a wheezing mouse sat on the pumpkin for a rest.  Kali  balanced herself on the mantel and glared with her baby blues at this vermin. Mousie started to twitch and squeak, from the mantel he ran, knocking over the pumpkin lights with a clatter.  Mom rushed inside to see what was the matter.  As the door opened  out mousie speeded with nary a look back .

Be safe and bring us felines in at noon so no one can give us nip and lure us away or any such scary event.

 

Sunday Selfie and more

What a yucky day….nothing but rain, rain and then more rain.

It’s just as well Shoko is off at the Cat Scout carnival today or she’d be wanting to play, “chase and bite butt.”  I really don’t like that game but Shoko insists we should play it on rainy days.

In the past look at the toys I have been trying to entice Shoko with.  She finally got all soft and kissed me instead.

Shoko didn’t want me to say anything to you but yesterday mom was so angry with Shoko that I thought mom would burst!  It was a beautiful day here yesterday so mom opened the screen door to the deck, so Shoko and I could go in and out at will.  There are no mosquitos or many flies so she thought it was safe.  Mom was busy blanching some beans for freezing and Shoko came rushing in and headed straight for her condo,  Mom saw Shoko throwing something in the air so went over to investigate.  There lay a small bird, its heart just apounding.  Mom hollered,”NO, NO, NO…get away!” several times.  Mom doesn’t say no often so Shoko listened as mom picked up the little bird.

She put the wee one on a small dish and walked out on the deck.  The bird quickly flew away.  Mom breathed a deep sigh of relief.                                                                        This bird is an Immature Ground Finch and looks just like the bird Shoko had but it wasn’t as fat as this bird.  Now, Shoko doesn’t jump for a bird so this bird must have been running around on the ground.  This is also Shoko’s first bird….it took her 7 years to find one on the ground, I guess.

Now for my secret about Shoko.  Shoko is afraid of the Cat’s Meow.  You know, that fun toy.                                                                              Mom brought it out of the cupboard where it was out of Shoko’s view.  I was excited…..this is me being excited!  MOL

Mom put the Cat’s meow in the living room for a week without turning it on.  Shoko was sniffing it and sitting beside it.  It was time to turn it on.                                                                        Where’s Shoko?  She’s behind the chesterfield poking her head out to watch it. MOL  This is the big fierce hunter we’re talking about here!

Now, on to our Sunday Selfie.  The Cat on My Head has a blog hop for all us anipals.  Just hit the blog name and you’ll find yourself viewing other  selfies.                                                                          I love my box and nobody tries to take it away from me.

 

 

 

 

Every Day Just A Little Different

 

I had a marvelous day yesterday at Cat Scouts.  Sammy of the Worldwide Wildcat Troop put on a Greenhouse warming party and we all brought our nip plants.  Well, I had a riot chasing some mice out back with a few of my pals.  Needless to say I overindulged in the nip and mom informed me I sounded weird so we should go home.

Greenhouse Warming

 

                                       

Once home I did what every cat that was “nipped” out would do…….I slept.

 

 

Today I was chompin’ at the bit to get out in the sunshine.  So dad let me out.  That was early this morning.  Mom called and called me but I never showed up and I usually come to her by the second calling.   By 2pm, mom was fussin’ and fumin’ as to where I was…..so dad, wanting to put mom’s mind at rest,  MOL….came lookin’ for me.  I was found fast asleep under one of the neighbour’s 87,000 old cars.  Dad took me home and told mom where he found me.  Mom kept me inside but I was tired and didn’t want to go gallivanting about. I crawled up to my condo and continued my pleasant dream.

 

Kali had her own objectives for the day.  Rising at 10am, she went tripping sleepily out to the deck. 

 

Kali hasn’t been feeling so great lately and so mom decided to give her some Barley Cat…this aids with digestion.   Kali came back in for her beef Fancy Feast.  Mom thought she was being real sneaky by putting the Barley Cat into the Fancy Feast.  Kali looked at the Fancy Feast, looked at mom, shook her front paws and walked away to lay down in her basket.  Not the reaction mom wanted at all.  Mom waited for an hour and then took a teaspoon of food to Kali in her basket.  Kali proceeded to gobble the food down as if she hadn’t been fed for days.  Mom tried this again with the same results.  Mom got the bowl of food and gave it to her and Kali got up and finished the bowl of food. 

Me?  Spoiled?

Me? Spoiled?

 

Now, mom is just shaking her head wondering about us.  Why am I found sound asleep under an old car when I have so many comfy places to sleep right here?  What is Kali trying to prove by declining her food and then eating the same food  when it is spoon fed to her?  Every day different.
