Sparks, hosted by McGuffy’s Reader has us shining a light on our lives and producing a quote that shares a positive image of what we are searching for.
If you were faced with a challenge of walking a mile. As you walked you became so tired you could hardly put one foot in front of the other but your determination said you must finish even if you crawled to the finish line. How good is that person going to feel when he makes it?
Can you really appreciate shoes? How about if you walked a mile without them….do you think you would appreciate them more? Would your walk without shoes become a challenge and winning that challenge make you feel happy?
Each challenge we take brings us closer to our fellow men and women because we all face challenges every day. How we handle these challenges divides the wimps from the winners.
Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader have given us four sentences to fill in with the way we see things. We plan to take turns and let you know how we feel.SHOKO…..BLACK KALI……ORANGE
A law I would like to see passed is…….a law making Catnip, British Columbia’s national plant. Then give every cat here, their very own plant.Life as it is today.
2. My favorite card game is…..Go Fish…I love fishing. I f I could catch a salmon….I’d be set for life.We’re waiting patiently for the fish to drop from the sky. Mom says that the mama fish drops a whole pile of eggs and then they hatch. C’mon a whole bunch of eggs drop into the pool. We’re waiting. MOLOk Kali my turn..you go rest your paws.
3. With Summer unofficially here, …...planting the veggie garden is a must as the weather is warm so the plants will sprout ahead when the rains come.
Here I am in the pea patch last year. Such a peaceful place to sleep.
4. A favourite Summer memory is……catching mice over at the retired mechanic’s backyard. I can sleep under the vehicles. or stalk mice. His backyard is way more fun than ours.
There you have it my friends. This was cool so thanks to Ellen and Anna for this opportunity.
Seems like winter was waiting for us this Friday and snow-covered everything and stayed that way. It’s also time for our artsy photo. So mom used my picture in pho.to editor once again. I like it and feel this is how I should be treated instead of just giving me the odd treat….instead get all excited when I’m in the room. MOL Aren’t Athena’s eyes the prettiest green you’ve ever seen.
Kali, Kali I was taken in the little box to the vet’s this morning! *Shoko runs into the bedroom and wakes Kali.* Good 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. Egads! I don’t want them to drill out a tooth or something equally as bad. Look Shoko, is your tooth sore? Yes. Doesit hurt more when you chew down on that tooth? Yes. Is 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.Aww…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.
What’s this fuzzy thing? It’s fur me….let’s see? Oh…..it’s really a pile of fur……you can give it to Kali….I feel like sharing. I don’t want to try it on…ok….if I have to. What can I say? I’m speechless!
