Well friends, we have gotten down to the nitty gritty in the garden. Beans, peas and beets must come out this weekend, The squash must be picked or covered. The temperatures are getting down to 2C tonight….that’s 35F. We are urged to cover up the veggies. The tomatoes will be covered tonight. Mom’s bringing out the peas and beans now. It will take more than today to take care of these so tomorrow will be another full day. The veggie garden is starting to look like the end is near.
Look at those tomatoes!
Felix/Cow-Kitty was keeping a close eye on me and he is gorgeous.
We also have visitors from Cat Scouts. The Flat Cats of King Meiko and Pete showed up Wednesday. We call them Fing Feiko and Fete to separate them from the real ones. Kali is getting along great with Fing Feiko and Fete.
Geesh, his butt doesn’t smell at all mom…he must be very clean! Wish I smelled that blah. Go stick him in the nip mom…then he’ll smell of something.
Fete and Kali had a chat about the necessity of boxes in their lives.
I hate to admit it but I was scared of Fing Feiko and Fete. Even when they smell like the nip.
That’s right, not even Felix was afraid of Fing Feiko. I’m embarrassed. He’s all the way from Texas and I won’t stand still when he’s around. Anybody got any suggestions?
Welcome to Fort Meezer in Da Hood my friends. Shoko’s idea of a name for the area around the backyard got a 47% vote. So look for Shoko to start sprucing up the area soon…right Shoko? Right Kali but hey, you gotta help too. Ah, I’m going to be more concerned with the backyard and grounds. This area by a vote of 46.7% is now called The Garden of Purrthley Delights. This delicious idea was CK’s of Stunning Keisha. Now, the greenhouse is like a world unto itself and Kali and I have decided to call it Shokali Island. When you walk into the greenhouse you are on a tropical island. The idea was Easy’s of Easy’s Blog. These are fun and informative blogs, take a peek and see.
These are the bounties from Shokali Island.Peppers are ready for eating as are the leeks. Spaghetti squash are ripe for the picking. Mom’s never cooked these kind of squash so dad’s in for a big surprise!
Guess who, grabbing some shut eye,
Onto mom’s meeting with Cow-Kitty’s dad. Mom said he was a very nice man. She asked if Cow-Kitty was a girl or boy. Darnell said they weren’t sure. They suspect she is a SHE. Her name is Felix…..ok? Mom never said what a weird name for a she cat but held her tongue. Mom told him about Kali getting very angry at Felix and she suspects its because Felix is growing up and has a different smell. Mom asked how old Cow Kitty was and Darnell said a couple of months. Mom corrected him and said at least 4 or 5 months. It is time to think about getting him neutered. Darnell agreed he should be neutered. Mom asked if he wanted to keep Cow-Kitty and he said his young daughter adored Cow-Kitty…even Darnell was calling Felix, Cow-Kitty. Right then mom knew she could never take a kitty away from a young girl. Mom told Darnell, who is out of work, that if they needed some assistance getting Cow-Kitty neutered that she would pay half. Darnell was thrilled mom offered to help.
There you have it friends. Cow-kitty’s sex is undetermined. His/her name is Felix and is not free for the taking Ellen.
