The mail lady came today with a happy surprise for all of us. This lady snuck up onto our porch and rang the doorbell. I screamed. “introoder alert,” Then I hot pawed it under the bed. Tyebe looked at me as if I was nuts. She’ll learn one day.
It was a parcel for us from the Overlook Twins.
No, no, not those two. They’re girls. The Overlook Twins I’m thinking of are real he-men and they’re from France. You can see them on Easy Blog. Just call them Phenny and Neilson. These are the guys I’m referring to. Don’t they look like they could do serious harm? My kind of dudes.
Look at the stuff they sent us. Mom also got a package from the Overlook Twins mom. There is a Play and Bowl. It’s cool. I’s didn’t use the bowl but mom is going to put treats in it and see if mes can sniff them out. mol *hic*
Me’s fuzzy cause I’s so fast that no camera can catch me’s without going blurry. Shoko had to try the Play and Bowl too.
The velvet lips are just me size and mes planning on hauling them around the house.
It has been a fun playing day thanks to the Overlook Twins. Thanks doods.
Today has been a very mild day….at least for us. Mom, Kali and I headed out for some much needed fresh air. Mom was surprised Kali was so happy to get out but I guess she was getting as bored as the rest of us with being stuck in day after day. Kali and I headed straight for the nip. Ever since mom decided to feed any cats and their monkeys left out on cold nights, the place has been crawling with introoders. We wanted to make sure the nip was fine. The nip was bald as a billy goat! Think that was winter’s chill, not the introoders though. Kali ran over and left her scent on what was left of the nip so these crazy dudes know it’s our nip.
I thought she was going tinkles on the nip and was mewing at her to stop. She said her waterworks were chilled and she couldn’t do anything even if she wanted. to.
After our visit outside where we exerted our dominance we decided it was time for a snooze.
Kali felt a bit too fresh and curled inside the tent mom makes between the pillows.
I on the other paw, was feeling just right, so I retired to my bed beside the toilet paper. Aww…a comfy corner of the bathroom.
Today is also Sunday Selfie with The Cat On My Head. Go visit them….read their news of what’s happening in their house and say hiya to your anipals that are posing.
Do you realize Kali, that Bacon nominated us for One Lovely Blog Award. Wasn’t that thoughtful? Bacon is nosy and probably wants to find out more about us. We’re nosy as heck so a little curiosity never killed the pig and is probably quite entertaining. Thank you so much Bacon that was very thoughtful of you.
Now to accept this award, we must tell you 7 things about ourselves you may not know. That’s going to be hard cause you know an awful lot about us.
1/ I have a boyfriend named Einstein that I met at Cat Scouts. He is way younger than me. I now have a nickname of Cougar Shoko. Isn’t he handsome?
2/ I haven’t caught a mouse in more than 2 years. The little dudes slip right through my paws. Can you see the mouse in the dirt? Neither could I so I gave up and came inside for a bite to eat.
3/ When I want mom to play chase and tag, I tap her on the arm. She gets the message and before long we’re up and chasing each other through the house.
4/ I prefer to dine at 6pm when the news is on and everybody is busy and out of the kitchen. Kali and I chow down on pate. Kali needs the pate because of her lack of teeth.
5/ I found a message on the shed…..”For a good time call Shoko at 1-800 *Im a babe*.” Dang that Cow Kitty! I’ll get the little fart face for this.
7/ I have a soft spot for Cow Kitty. I don’t want him too close but if I don’t see him for a few days, I look for him. There you have it, our 7 tell all facts about us.
The hard part is nominating ONLY

Are you ready for a steamy joke my friends. What do you call a train that eats toffee?
A chew, chew train. MOL, MOL
Some flat scouts from Cat Scouts came to visit us and dudes we had a houseful. They were the perfect guests. Not one of them threw kitty litter around the bathroom. No one hacked up a furball either. Mom was impressed. We had Fing Feiko/King Meiko’s alter ego from Texas, Tristy from California from the blog Christie Paws, Izzy from Oklahoma from the blog Dezi World. Our last visitor is Fete/Pete’s alter ego from Tennessee.
I made sure that all the flats went to the kitty litter and had some noms and water before getting in the car for their road trip. Mom and dad rounded up the flats and placed them in the back seat together. Not one of the flats sang out in protest but they were meowing to each other in excited voices. Kali and I waved to the flats as they left.
The Huble Homestead is only 40 km ( 25 miles) north of Prince George but you are in total wilderness as soon as you pass the city limits.
I am Foko. I am Shoko’s flat scout. I will be the guide for our visit. We all sat back and enjoyed the fresh air and before we knew it, we were at the Huble Homestead. This Homestead consisted of a general store, blacksmith shop, stable,a couple of log houses and the old homestead itself. Huble Homestead was built along the Fraser River for easy transportation by paddle wheel. Travel by land was far too difficult as there were only trails to follow with pack horses and all the supplies needed for a long journey from the Vancouver area.
Some wise words from our host and we were on our way.
We all had to show off the old fashioned loom and have a rest. Your wondering where Fete alias Pete went as he’s not in the photo? Fete was overly interested in the chick-hens. He muttered something about his sister and chick-hens.
We didn’t get very far and Fete fell in a hole. We all had to gather around and see if he was ok. He was fine just gawking around too much. We all had a good meow and then ran on to catch up with mom and dad.
This is an old fashioned press that was used for flattening beaver pelts for easy storage.
Mom had a pair of Polar cleats as did dad but they were pretty hard to fit over one’s boots or runners and then you must take them off each time you come in or you’ll have cleat holes in your floor. Guess how mom found out!
The next stop on our outing was a small cabin that was actually the Blacksmith’s cabin.
Now this is really working from home.
This is the actual Huble House. These folks must have been well off because even the house is whitewashed and they had a kitchen not just a wood stove. The kitchen is separate from the house and there is a doorway that leads right to the table.
Notice the door to the kitchen behind the table.
We sat on the cold wood stove in the office of the homestead for our picture.
Talk about narrow staircases…whew…you can’t afford to be fat in the old days.
The last place we saw on our way out of the homestead area was the place where the meat was kept to keep it away from wild animals such as bears.
A pleasant way to spend the afternoon. We all jumped in the car and headed for Prince George. Before long we were at the outskirts. There you are a little slice of history from northern British Columbia.
Kali, I can’t thank you enough for the pawty. Everyone seemed to have a super time. You really fooled me too. I really thought you and mom had forgotten all about my Gotcha Day. We wouldn’t do that Shoko….you should know us better than that by now. Ya, I guess Kali but its the way you said it…you played your part well.
Here are a few of the highlights.
Easy managed to tunnel all the way from France and scared everyone when he announced himself. In French of course. The hisses could be heard all over the block, hehe
Guess that stink was a fun game. Everyone wanted to play. Some of the stinks were pleasant like the tuna stink. The skunk stink paniced Nellie and she ran into Bacon while he was having some watermelon. What a mix up….Bacon was insulted because he thought Nellie was saying he stunk. I can still hear Bacon yelling out, “I have a bath every week you meezer, you!”
It was fantastic to see Pete Hartley and Tea. They are two very important members of the ThunderCat Patrol in Cat Scouts. In fact, I don’t know what I’d do without these wonderful dudes.
We are very fortunate that Pete H flies and was able to pick Tea up in Missouri on his way to the airport here.
hahaha Buddy just had to get in there and act like a doofus to empress you Kali. I think he really likes you! Oh I do hope so Shoko. I think he is terrific. What beautiful shiny grey fur he has. *sigh*
Einstein brought his whole family over to sing Happy Gotcha Day for me. What a cool family he has…Miss Fitz was so funny. She kept me in stitches with her stories! You can visit them at Timmy’s Commentary. Just click on the blog name. I believe they had a post celebrating my Gotcha Day.
There were so many highlights we just can’t get them all down here. Here are some more Gotcha Cards I got from my wonderful friends.
This lovely card is from Dharth…our awesome cuz. His blog is Purrince Sidharth’s Purrfect Pad
Thank you mom and Kali for all your work….this cat appreciates all your efforts. I must thank my friends for stopping by and making this Gotcha Day a memorable one.
