Gardening Can Be Hazardous To One’s Health

 

I was in the house dining as were mom and dad.  Kali was trying to get up after an especially good dream of Buddy.                                                               

SHOKO…..BLACK
DAD…..BLUE

Dad looked out the window and said, “I think Cow Kitty is  in trouble in the vegetable garden.”  The three of us quickly headed outside to see what was wrong.  As we got closer this is what we saw.

Cow Kitty was terrified and very agitated.  Dad tried to remove his paw but Cow Kitty tried to scratch and bite him so dad told mom to get the scissors and he’d cut Cow Kitty out.                                                                   

     Cow Kitty must have been in some pain also.  Dad cut Cow Kitty’s paw out of the pea netting and off he went.  No limping just happier than hell-o to get out of the trap that had never bit him before.

Mom and dad never thought this pea netting could be  hazardous to any animals but the squares are small and don’t stretch.  Next year will be different as the netting will have big plastic squares so nothing will get caught.

Cow Kitty came and lay under the deck in about half an hour.  He was more relaxed.

Cow Kitty had a collar on…this is new for him.  The collar came off when he struggled with the pea netting.  There was no name on the collar but five bells.  This is a sign of how great a hunter he is.

Due to Cow Kitty’s harrowing experience today we are making him honorary Artsy Fartsy model on Athena Cat Goddess Wise kitty’s blog.                                                                         

Mom used Lunapic and used the Art Watercolour and lessened the effect.  Then she rounded the border.                                                                     Here is our Cow Kitty in all his glory.                                                                     

MOL..Happy Canada Day from us Canucks.

 

Dramatics at Meal Time

Can we talk?  I want to talk about dining habits friends.  So sit down and pull up a blankie.

Shoko and I were having fun at meal time.  See, mom would leave down our dry Siamese cat food  all day and we would fill up on the crunchy goodness.  Come time for our meal of wet food, we weren’t all that hungry so would play games with mom.  Like take a taste and back away in horror.  MOL  It got to be a real fun game.  Shoko and I would try and outdo the other with our reactions.  I would gag and Shoko would look at mom like, “If she’s going to be sick eating this cwap, I’m not having any of it.” and walk away with her head held high.  We continued on this way for awhile all the time meowing at mom’s expense.                                                                            

Then one morning a little bit before breakfast I got up to partake of this crunchy goodness.  There was no food bowl on our placemat!   I ate the odd piece that had fallen out onto the mat.  Dang!  I was still hungry.  Shoko sleepily staggered over for some crunchies too.  Friends we were ticked!  We decided that we would tell mom about this injustice and have her put our crunchies down.  So we decided one of us would approach her and let her know we’re starving out here, while she is snoring away.  I went into the bedroom and ran up my stairs meowing all the way.  Mom looked at me through bleary eyes and muttered, “Che che nog nog.”  What?  That doesn’t make sense.  I smacky pawed her shoulder several times to which she replied the same.  OK Shok your turn.  Shoko smacky pawed mom’s arm and then ran around her pillow, finally settling on the top of the pillow.  No response.  So we waited for her to wake up.

Finally mom woke up!  We both tried to tell her about this absurdity with our dry food.  Mom and us sauntered out to the kitchen where mom still didn’t put down our dry crunchies but opened a tin of wet food….our favourite really…..a Fancy Feast beef flavoured tin.  We were starving to death before her eyes, so we dug right in.                                                   Hey, this wet food tastes pretty good.  Seems our eating habits are changing.  Dry food vacates the placemat 3 hours before wet food time.  We still are miffed at the change but as you can see we eat our FF beef flavoured without the dramatics,
