Strolling down the Street One Day

Mom and I went for a stroll yesterday, a long stroll.  The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was just a spit of rain here and there.  So off we went down the street.  I was a little embarrassed, peeps were pointing and laughing at me….this is rude.  Mom told me to ignore them and enjoy the ride.  So I lay down and watched all the peeps and scenery go by.                                                                           aaassistedThis is Gateway Facility for Seniors where mom volunteers every Monday.  They have a nice bench mom relaxed on before we continued our travels.

Mom went strolling down a busy street where semi’s were rushing by me.  I was getting a little scared but we got off of the sidewalk, stopped and talked with a lady that had purple hair.  She had a shopping cart with the statement…”I can’t take it anymore.”  She was a sad lady.  Mom and I talked with her for a long time.  She told us her story and we listened.  By the time we left she looked a little more hopeful.

We strolled into the Youth Centre where dad volunteers and he was delighted to see us.  He proceeded to show us the new wheelchair lift they had gotten recently.  Mom and I just had to ride on it.                                                                     aacrsmliftAfter this amazing display where dad brought the bar down on mom’s head and I mewed in merriment, while mom was a little ticked, we went home.

Shoko was waiting for us on the fence and came dancing in the front door while mom picked up the mail.  There was mail for Shoko!  It was from Cat Scouts.  The parcel held a kerchief from the April quest Shoko was on.  Shoko wanted her new kerchief on like right now.

There you have it, Shoko modelling her kerchief.  Does she look like a proud dudette or what?                                                                      jack_o_lantern_canadiancats

 

Waiting and Hoping …….Tooth Fairy Where Are You?

Here it is 2am and all is quiet.  Kali is snoring up a storm and so I wait alone for the Tooth Fairy.                                                                 ashokoteeth2I’m getting *yawn* sleepy.

ZZZZZZ……what was that noise?  You see, I have one eye open so I can see everything that happens.                                                                             aashoksleep
I know I heard something. Oh look, the Tooth Fairy’s been by.

ashokstoothfairyfindingsKali look what I got!  I got a toonie, two loonies and two quarters.  So you got two dollars for each tooth and fifty cents for the broken one.  Good hard cash.  I got a feather wand too.  That’ll be a lot of fun.  Just try to catch me feather…MOL.  Focus Shoko.

You got a cheque too.  Oh, oh.  She could be one of those butt(ers)  What???  You know one of those dad’s that don’t pay ail-a-money for their child’s support.  Oh…MOL…you mean deadbeat dads.  Ya,that’s it!!   The Tooth Fairy may not have the mew-lah In the bank to cover the cheque.  Believe me Shoko if you go cash this cheque, I guarantee you, that’s the least of your problems.                                                                   ashoktoofair

Shoko did you get a picture of the Tooth Fairy?  I hope so.  I was wearing my selfie remote and attached the motion activator before I went to sleep.  Looks like I got her.  The camera was on.                                                                            atoothfairy

This is the Tooth Fairy??   Egads!!  She’s not the least bit like I imagined.  It looks more like dad.  MOL  Even dad doesn’t look that crazy.  Mom says that the Tooth Fairy has helpers that step in and help her when she’s really busy. I guess this guy is one of them.  Probably a peeps Tooth Fairy helper.  I’ll bet hardly anybody likes to see him instead of the real Tooth Fairy so be kind Shoko.  OK Kali, I sure can understand why nobody would want to see him late at night. 

You know Kali, databbiesotrouttowne were right.  I got the exact sum they said I would, and not a cent less.  Did I get any treats?  Yes, you did.  You got 3 bags of Island Paradise, our favourite.  Mom put them away while you were busy.

What a night.  I could use some sleep.

Have a super day and may your fairy bring you everything you want.

Shoko’s Horror Story

Kali, Kali I was taken in the little box to the vet’s this morning!  *Shoko runs into the bedroom and wakes Kali.*                                                    akacrGood grief Shoko, you scared me. Yawn!!  You went to the vets?  You?  There’s never anything wrong with you, I wonder why mom took you there.

It was horrible Kali.  They weighed me by putting me in this stupid looking basket with a paper towel in it.  Like…like I was going to go tinkles on their precious machine.  After that episode I rushed to get back in my box and managed to sit there till Dr. Kalyn came into the room.  She said I weigh about the same as last year so I’m keeping my kittenish figure.  Mom babbled away at her and then Dr. Kalyn stuck her fingers in my mouth.  Cwap, she made my sore tooth hurt.  I didn’t like it a bit but then she said to me, “My little sweetheart, I’m so sorry to have to do this to you.”  Hey, Dr. Kalyn is very nice to us.  I got the chance to get into my box so took it.  Mom and Dr. K babbled back and forth for a bit and dad stood playing his game.  I heard, “We’ll be back Monday.” and we were outta the little exam room.  The visit was $36.80 but Dr. Kalyn didn’t charge mom for the visit.  BONUS!

I was quiet all the way home and thundered outside as soon  as the door was open.  Cow Kitty was over for a visit so I sat down and told him all about it.  His tail just kept getting bigger.  I scared him.

Cow Kitty was so startled by the vet news, he dropped the moth he had in his mouth.                                                              acksEgads!  I don’t want them to drill out a tooth or something equally as bad.  Look Shoko, is your tooth sore?  Yes.  Does it hurt more when you chew down on that tooth?  YesIs it the worst pain you’ve ever felt when you bite into your favourite treats, Island Paradise.  Oh, you know it is, Kali.  My eye water’s and the pain makes me drop my treat and run…thundering down the hall.  It only makes sense then to see the dentist at the vet’s.  You don’t want to lose most of your teeth like me.  You don’t have to mouth your wet food, it’s just that your tooth is very sore so this is your way of compensating.  I know you’re right Kali but I still don’t like the idea.  C’mon Shoks we’ll go grab a nap together.  OK. but no mushy stuff.  I just want to feel your with me sis.  OK, my lil sis.                                                               aakstouch                                                                               aattouchAww…I feel more relaxed now.

Have a great Wednesday my friends.

Take a zip over to Lexi the Schnauzer and read about her latest campaign strategy meeting. I read this post after the vet visit and it cheered me right up.

Sunday Selfie With Shoko

catonheadbd                                                                      We are late and I am sorry but mom had an appointment at the hospital for an Ultrasound.  On a Sunday no less!  Mol. If you’re thinking maybe she’s pregnant…..that’s hilarious, MOL…no way is she pregnant.  Actually, I think she likes these peeps at the hospital and goes in for these exams cause she wants to visit.  That’s more like our mom.

Today is Selfie Sunday with our blog hop host The Cat On My Head.  Click on the host name and view the other anipals posing for you.

I wasn’t posing for anyone.  I lay down after helping strip the bed and before I ran around flattening the sheets.  It just so happens when I flopped down I kicked the selfie remote and it caught me relaxing.  Mom thought this was a completely natural picture of me so I decided to send it along.                                                                               aselfieA great big Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there.  We are having a BBQ for Dad’s Day.  He is BBQ a chicky with a diet Pepsi up its butt.  I love saying butt…MOL  Better than putting it up dad’s butt…MOL

It’s also Garfield’s Birthday.  Happy 37th Birthday my peach coloured friend.  No not you Kali.  Garfield would be 164 in peep’s age.  He’s such a young-looking guy.

1garfieldFavourite Quote of Garfield’s:

 ‘If people were meant to pop out of bed, we’d all sleep in toasters.’  MOL

Have a happy Sunday and may your hissy fits be small.

Getting Ready For The Growing Season

My stars…mom says its time to plant some transplants already.  It’s not even the 24th of May yet.  We usually plant on our Canadian national  holiday of the Queen’s birthday,  Not this queen, but Queen Victoria.  I don’t really know why we celebrate her cause this queen has a birthday too and she’s still going strong at 90.  I digress…the weather has been very warm here.  Mom’s thoughts have turned to planting time.  So everybody in the household has padded out to the garden and done some work.                                                                         avegygardenDad rototilled the soon to be planted veggie garden.  Mom will soon sit in the soil and plant the seeds.  I will help her by digging out the rows.  Kali will lie on the air mattress mom uses.

abeewater1The water in the saucer is for the kitties that wander over here and are thirsty after partaking of the Nip.  The stones in the saucer are places for the bees to have a drink.  I try not to grab any flies taking the water…I usually am busy with my watering chores and don’t see them.

akalideckKali is supervising the work dad and mom are doing but she doesn’t want to get her paws dirty.

Mom decided we needed a break so we took a walk in the Lane.

ashowalkI looked both ways before I stepped into the Lane.  There could be some weird kitty or, heaven forbid, a dog in the Lane.  All was clear.

Cow Kitty is that you here at the cwappy house?

Kali and Shoks

Have a great day.

Blooper From the Spa Day

After a busy time at the spa.  They piled into the Thompson’s ‘carry all’ vehicle and headed for some shopping time.                                                           Bill-Jim  Bacon’s dad wanted dad to listen and tell him how many street hoes as opposed to house hoes, are in  a package of Ho-Ho’s.  Dad was delighted to find a hoe….just for himself.
