Piglove and Fozziemum are having Shopping Around The World today. Thank you ladies for another intriguing idea.
Well, cwap I say. This month’s Shopping Around the World snuck up on us. We are just getting used to playing with some new toys and wham, Phenny’s mom reminded us it’s Shopping Around the World time. Son of a paper tiger! So here we sit….unprepared as mom and dad have eaten most of their turkey dinner and fixin’s. Shall we tell you that Cow Kitty ran away with all mom and dad’s food or the Elf on the Shelf buried our food under a snow bank. No, none of this happened. So this recipe does not involve Christmas dinner but an appetizer for any time. This is homemade Cocktail Sauce for those special occasions when you’re serving shellfish. You will need ketchup, lemon juice and horseradish. Ketchup..French’s 750 ml….$3.99 (Our ketchup is still Heinz so it’s old…they don’t make Heinz ketchup up here in Canada anymore.)
Real Lemon… Lemon Juice….. 150 ml. $1.50
Woodman’s Horseradish…..250 ml……$3.99
You will use just a bit of each. Most peeps have these items on hand,
Put 3 tbsp of ketchup into a small dish, Add 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of horseradish and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Stir and taste. If, you want more zip in your sauce add a small amount of horseradish and taste. Grab a prawn and dress it up with some cocktail sauce.

Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader have made up these four fill-ins for us. Thank you ladies.
1.The highlight of my Christmas was…..NEED YOU ASK? IT WAS DA BIRD FROM EINSTEIN. 2 .My New Year’s resolution is …..TO REFRAIN FROM TRYING TO BITE KALI’S BUTT. MOM’S RIGHT IT’S KINDA RUDE, EVEN IF KALI ISN’T LISTENING TO ME AND SHE DOES WHEN I TRY AND BITE HER BITE BUT THEN SHE FINKS ON ME.

I’m appearing in The Cat On My Head’s bloghop. Click on the blog hop host and look at all my buds posing for you.
Mom told me seagulls were flying over my head. They were flying so fast, they were blurry. Hmmm…I’m wearing my, *you’re full of cwap* expression. MOL
What do you call a gull when it flies over a bay?
In July “Jeanne Foguth’s blog, Pet Care Tips and Humour” nominated us for a Happiness Tag We gratefully accept this great….TAG and thank you Jeanne for the honour. In accepting we have some responsibilities, such as:
Tell everyone the 5 Things that Make Us Happy
1/ Kali and I both agree the most important thing that makes us happy is to live with mom and dad. They treat us very well and we love them. Mom is a little odd at times but she’s never boring
2/ I must say I do love running. I get so happy when Cow Kitty is chasing me home or I’m running after Kali down the hall.
3/ I have so much to be thankful for but this award is for what makes me happy. I would have to say laying in a sunpuddle, getting warm and cozy really makes my world go around. 4/ We both are delighted when we hear from our boyfriends. Einstein sets my teeth on edge, he is one dude that just doesn’t slow down. Buddy is a gentleman and treats me as a lady should be treated. Einstein and I Glamping in Cat Scouts. Buddy and Kali enjoying a BBQ.
5/ For our last entry we decided to go with our stroller because we each like the stroll mom gives us. I am surprised that Shoko likes it but she never ceases to amaze me.

Admit to adoring 5 Bloggers who Make Us Happy and Notifying those Bloggers
We adore so many blogs and the hard work everyone puts into each post that we name everybody ….. This is a cop out Shoko…..you should name 5 blogs. I like them all, they’re my friends. Everyone else had the same problem. Cwap!! What if they’ve been nominated or don’t do these things? That’s ok, they’ll let you know. Alright…quit bugging me.
1/ Tomcat Commentary By Tim This is a blog of seven cats living in a loving home. Buddy and Einstein our boyfriends live here.
2/ERin the Cat Princess…..life from a princesses point of view. She’s mad about cream too.
3/ Three Chatty Cats This blog regulars are Olive, Dexter and Sophie….3 chatty cats. This blog also delves into shelters and articles about rescuing cats. It is very informative.
4/ The Cat On My Head is an awesome blog as are the Blues cats. There are several kitties living under the same roof, mostly living amicably. Not always though. Check them out.
5/ Easy Blog What can we say? Easy is a Woofie unto himself. He is both fun to be with and a fun host like during the Pawlympics in the event Tuneful Farts.
Kali, do you care if it’s Friday? Not really Shoks. Wait! Yes, yes I do. We started filling out 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader’s Fill in’s. Cwap!! You’re right Kali. Let’s get on with it.
1. The best brand of treat is Island Paradise by Party Mix.
Totally Kali. You must try them friends. They’re just the right size, small and melt in your mouth and the taste mmmm…well, you just have to taste them for yourself.
2. Mom refuses to buy dog shampoo unless there is a sale or a coupon. I need not say anything…Woofie shampoo?
3. I am inspired by cats that speak up for themselves!. We are Siamese and believe in speaking up if we want anything or something is on our minds. Never mind guessing what we want….we’ll let you know.
4.Whenever I see a camera I close my eyes. MOL Ok my turn at the last statement;
4.Whenever moi sees a crow , I chatter at great length . Sounds like my false teeth are clattering together. MOL
There you have it friends. Our fill-ins for this Friday.
Shoko is black
Kali is orange

Kali, Kali….come here sis. You’ll never guess what mom told me today. What…..she actually gave birth to you and you look like our dad but you have fur just like Auntie Evelyn. So you’re a throwback to a simpler time. ‘giggle’ Cwap, Kali!! You really do live in a world of your own making. I was just kidding you Shoko…
I’ll whisper the news to you Kali. Today is Meezer Colour Day! No!! Really, are pulling my paw, Shoks? A day all our own. Wow. Mom says she has a few prezzies for us too. I hope they’re half as good as the prezzies we got from Einstein, Buddy and the gang at Tomcat Commentary by Tim. I love those cat crazies.. Are we suppose to do something that is worthy of a meezer Shoko? Maybe we should show everyone what class we have and read some feline poetry. I don’t think we’re suppose to do anything different just be our lovable selves. We struck paw dirt!! Woo hoo, look catnip Greenies, a yeow rainbow and three wee mice. The mice are just our size. I wonder if they are the marinater from Jackson Galaxy? We can pretend the mice are marinaters Shoko. Mom can pop one in our bag of nip. Great idea Kali. We only really know one other meezer…….Queen Nellie Belly. Let’s send her an e-card. Won’t she be surprised.
Happy (Me)ezer Colour Day to all our friends.
A happy looking gentleman.
Dad is waiting in the Atlanta airport. Where’s mom? OK dad, what did you do with her?
Aww..there’s mom…rarin’ to go I see!
It’s onward to Miami….it’s Florida mom.
The flight took about 2 hours and these two were planting their feet in Florida soil. Right away they learned peeps seemed crazy here. They all seemed to need a brush up on how to drive a vehicle. The first one to get a lesson would be the cab driver. After a ride that scared the cwap outta them they were at the hotel on Miami Beach. Immediately they headed for the boardwalk and then the beach.
They wanted to dip their toes in the Atlantic….the Pacific had their whole bodies but the Atlantic could have their toes only.
This time mom looks like she’s telling that little girl where the monkey lands in the buckwheat. The little girl looks scared.
My good cod, you do take a lousy picture mom. MOL
