Tyebe Tuesday on Happy Tuesday

We are joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday.  Please zip over there by clicking on the blog name in red.                                                                 

Geez, I’m really sorry dad.  I thought a burp was coming up, I didn’t realize it was my snack coming back for an encore.  It must have been the fly  I ate that was buzzing around my head..  He must have eaten something that didn’t agree with me. No, I didn’t eat too much.  Well, maybe just a wee bit more than normal.                                                        

It’ll take no time at all to clean. Here, I’ll help dad.

  What’s this floating in here.  Uh, dad, I don’t think this part of the fly should be here anymore.                                                             

It’s looking good, dad. What’s that? Oh, It’s part of the fountain. I didn’t know that! This fountain is cool.  There we go.  Nice and clean again.

Now it’s time for Shoko’s wisdom words, otherwise known as Meezer Proverbs.                                                 

Whattt….oh, right, Meezer Proverbs. I drifted off to fantasyland but I’m back now.

“The wise meezer will demand and get respect from his roomies.  If, your roomie doesn’t act respectful, screech until he gets the message.  He will bow to your wishes after that.”

Mom Plans a Pit Stop

Budd, Shoko and Tyebe I have something to tell you.  Ya, is it about our food.  I know you’re going to give us more.  I can run all over the counters NOW.  Is that it?  These two will have to stay away from me when I’m sleeping?  It’d be hard to enforce though.  No, everybody’s wrong.  What?  I’m going to have to go for a pit stop so I won’t be home for a day or so.  OMC!!  Who will feed me….I mean us?  I’ll starve.  I’m not used to fending for myself anymore.  Besides eating garbage is awful.  Dad is going to make sure you’re all fed.  Oh my, he doesn’t add gravy like you do and he doesn’t tell us what we’re eating.  He doesn’t know how!  Yes, he does.  He’ll start feeding you now so he can ask questions.  Well, I don’t know about this idea.         
Not bad! What is it, dad? It’s liver and chicken. Really? Hmmm… lots of gravy. Not bad dad. Gee, thanks Shoko.                                                             
Hey mom what’s this pit stop for? Well, seems I need retreading as the left tire is getting worn out. Ya, you do walk rather slowly. Is this why you aren’t outside building a snowman this year, mom? Your bang on, Shoko. Can’t you just get another tire? It’s even more work and time in the hospital if I get a new tire/ankle replacement.   What’s that place called a Ho spit all? Doesn’t sound like a very nice place. You heard of it, Budd? No, but I wouldn’t want to go anywhere if they’re going to spit on me. We’d rather have you here, mom. Just think in about 6 weeks I’ll be able to walk with the best of them. THAT LONG! That’s like a year from now!  I’ll be old. No, Tyebe it’s only a month and a half.
How long will you be in this horrible ho! spit all?  Will you forget us?  I could never forget you three and dad.  I hope to be there overnight and then home.  That’s not bad so then you’ll be feeding us again?  No, I’ll have to stay in bed for a wee while and then I’m not supposed to walk about very much while my foot heals.  Well, I don’t care for this lying around a bit.  Will you play with us like you usually do?  Of course I will, but you’ll have to come to me on the bed and play.  We can do that.                                                                
I’m going to take your Christmas gift with me to the Ho! spite all….I mean hospital, Tyebe.  Wow!!  Really.  So you really like the seagulls.  I sure do, my passion is seagulls after cats of course.  Those seagulls have Tyebe written all over them. When I hear them I’ll think of you immediately.                                                                 

 


Can we visit you, mom? Really, I don’t think you’d like it there Tyebe. They frown upon playing and biting cords and hoses. Budd, they don’t share food either. Shoko you dislike people you don’t know so none of you would care for it. Sounds like a disgusting place. When do you go? Tuesday morning. That’s pretty quick so Wednesday afternoon you should be home with us again. Yep and believe me I’ll be delighted to come home.

Friends I won’t be around much but when I can again get to the computer, I’ll be anxious to read your posts and have a good ole yak with you.

Tyebe Tuesday December 11

It’s getting closer to Christmas.  Two weeks today and we’ll be eating turkey and playing with our toys.  Hopefully a few treats too.  How many of you said, “No!” and looked on the calendar?                                                             
Well, these ears have to go. There’s no way I’m wearing these again. Perhaps dad would like to keep them.
I adjusted the new ornament mom put on the tree.

Let’s put it where I can get at it more easily.

Much better, I can bat it anywhere from the tent.                                                                       
My work here is done for the day.

Sunday Selfie with Shoko

MOL, into the basement we went….just to be alone.  I knew it was selfie Sunday and I had a quick bath before we went downstairs.

This is where I bring the live mice I catch. Here we play until I get hungry.

C’mon mom, hurry up….I think I hear someone in the basement.                                                           

It’s ok….it’s just the heat coming on.                                                          
Egads, someone is a real lead foot in the house.  It must be dad, Kali was sleeping when we left.

I’m going to take my selfie now.  Are you ready? *click*                                                  

It’s a keeper. Let’s get it to The Blue family.  Friends, you should drop by and visit The Cat On My Head blog hop and see all the furries and feathers modeling for us.

May your Sunday be great. It’s only a week from Christmas Eve. WOW!!                                                 

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.

Father’s Day Selfie

 

Where’s dad…it’s his day.  What did you get him Shoko?  Were we suppose to get him something?  He doesn’t like chewing on your mouse or a straw.  He just drinks through the straw…he looks like a dork when he does that.  I guess his mom never showed him how to play with it.                                                                    This mouse moves when I hit his bum.  MOL

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                   Does it look like you should sip at a drink with this…I don’t think so.

Mom says she will make dad a special supper so we don’t have to share our toys.  Woo hoo, we’re off the hook.

This is also Selfie day at The Cat On My Head blog.                                                                Click on the blog host name and visit your lovely friends acting their best for the selfie.                                                                        I had to set the timer on the selfie for this one.  I did fall sound asleep.

Hope everyone has a special Father’s Day.  If you have no father…..celebrate anyway.  Thank your friends for being there for you and have a special time playing.                                                                         

 

 

                                                                

Hippity Hoppity Onwards To Harrods

 

It’s time for the Hop On /Off bus.  Off they go to hop off at Chinatown and walk up to Covent Garden.

Dad jumped on the bus and went upstairs to the deck on top. Mom looked at the stairs and figured she’d keep the bus driver company.                                                   

They got off at Chinatown and saw a pub that called to them.

They had to go inside and see all the slugs.  Rip off!  There were no slugs but a delicious bottle of Light Pepsi waited for them.

 

Off they went to Covent Garden.  They had to see where James Bowen and Streetcat Bob had been busking the Big Issue magazine.  Since those times James and Streetcat Bob have accomplished a lot.  These two former street guys are financially secure and can buy stuff they never ever thought they could at one time.                                                                               

The next stop for mom and dad was Harrods.                                                             The first stop was the food halls and specifically the different fancy teas.

Mom was in her glory and bought Harrods Tea….Afternoon Blend                                                                       Then it was over to the food halls for a peek at the fancy foods.                                                                           Mom saw a sandwich she just had to have.  It was two pieces of rye bread with butter, a cooked thinly sliced beet, smoked salmon, cut thinly and a few bean sprouts on top.  The sandwich was cut in fours…just the way mom likes.  Mom offered half to dad, who wrinkled up his nose but mom insisted as they should always be open to new ideas.  Dad took a quarter and loved it so much he ate the other quarter.

Mom wanted to buy something from Harrods other than just the tea, so decided to buy some perfume.  It cost more than the ready cash they had.  So dad would have to pull out more loot.  Dad disappeared to stand alone by a wall so he could get at his money belt.  A store security man went over and told him there was none of that in this store.  The security man thought dad was playing with himself….what a hoot!  Dad had to explain what he was trying to do without turning red  with embarrassment. MOL                                                               After purchasing the perfume our travellers went back to the hotel with their treasures.

Mom explained to dad that she needed her furs washed but the sink was as big as her face.  Dad said never fear, he will help.  So dad shampooed and used conditioner on mom’s fur.  Trouble is he didn’t get all the soap and conditioner out…a very difficult task.  So mom happily was walking around with a half pound of shampoo in her fur.  I sound like Shoko don’t I?  Let’s get the drama queen in here to explain the next chore of moms.  Thanks Kali.  Mom told dad she needed a bath also but the bathtub was too deep, she couldn’t step into it.  The bathtub was an old-fashioned tub but with handrails on each side of the tub.  The back didn’t go straight but was more like a slide.  A funny looking tub to mom.  Dad helped mom and she slid down the back of the tub and landed with a plop….kinda hard on the butt she said.  Yet here she was with water and soap. The inside of the tub was indented the shape of her legs and butt.  There was a problem because of these indentations she couldn’t lift her swollen legs  but the water felt so good.  A helping paw from dad and she was out and never wanted back in ever again. MOL

So sorry about the quality of the photo…think mom had too much tea before shooting the picture.   Do you see the grooves?                                                                    Well shampoo head and her mate, Helpful Harry, drifted off to sleep very quickly.

 

Next installment involves a train ride up country.
