Sunday Selfie at Fort Meezer

Kali and I thought we’d show you what our family was doing today.  We spent most of the morning outside….all of us.                                                                Nice day and hardly any smoke.

Dad was outside getting rid of our old fence with a new one.  Him and the neighbour finally agreed on a fence and split the cost.

 Our new fence…look ma no pathways through the fence.  No introoders can come bouncing through the fence now.

A little feathered friend…ya, not a friend of mine….came for a drink.                                                                                   Come have a seat on the railing. *Shoko rubs paws together.*

I gotta admit this guy is tiny.

You can see the old fence in the background.


These are mom’s volunteer, “Love Lies Bleeding.”  They have red peeking out of the top of their heads.

I’m feeling a tad peckish, let’s go inside.                                                               Ya, this is my new place mat that mom brought me back from Paris.  I’m allowed to eat up on the island cause my food is one Kali shouldn’t have.

Hey, mom whatcha doin?  Are you working on your recipe for Shopping Around The World hosted by Bacon, my bro by another mother?

I don’t think the recipe calls for soups this month but I’ll check.  These are our leeks.  I’m going to put in a green pepper that is turning red.  Just for some colour.  Whatever?  I don’t want it.  I don’t eat green food.  We know what grass does so, no thanks….you and dad enjoy.                                                                   It’s also The Cat On my Head’s Selfie Sunday.  This week Kali has the honour.  Pad on over to The Cat on my Head blog and see the furries that have clicked themselves stupid for the bestest selfie. Click on our hostess’s name and drop in. MOL                                                          What?  I just woke up….lemme see,you want me to take my.. *click*…whoops wasn’t quite ready.  MOL                                                                Have a great day my friends.                                                                  

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

Snow, Snow Everywhere


Did it snow yesterday?  Holy Cow Kitty, did it snow!  I would just walk out the door and want right back in.  I’m getting annoyed at Cow Kitty cause he comes over and digs a hole in the snow and poohs on our back lawn.  This is gross!  Come spring there will be Cow Kitty deposits all over the lawn.

snowfallingzmKali and I thought this picture would be better than watching Cow Kitty go to the bathroom.  This picture doesn’t really show the volume of snow Shoks.  Find another.  You’re right Kali. the snow builds up on the fence and falls off.

This one gives you the idea of the volume after the snowfall.  This is the view from our dining room window.  It looks cold around here. MOL                                                   snowzm

I did say I would show you our new lawn ornament.  Dad out did himself.  We have Candy Cane lights around the railing but *sigh* they are dying and there are no more to be found in this town.  So dad has stretched them out….ya, it looks silly but what’s a dad to do?

Ta Da….here is the front lawn with our new sleigh!                                                                    decorationszmI know we need lots more decorations but they are costly and we don’t live far from Da (real) Hood.  The roughest part of town.  Every morning mom checks to make sure the sleigh is still in position.  Maybe the residents of Da Hood will respect each other during this special season and leave our sleigh be.

Kali has adopted her place  ‘neth the Christmas Tree….new word!  You heard it here first!

DSC_0814hehe…notice Kali is lying on one of her Christmas presents….she’s claimed it and I’m not allowed on it…..we’ll see about that Kali.

I was laying on the back of the Love Seat watching Kali get comfy when dad clicked me before I had a chance to close my eyes.                                                             shokszmcrophaha….what a scary look I have!  I’d scare the spots off Cow Kitty. MOL  In my defence I was taken off guard and my look is more…”What do you want and get outta my face.”  A true *Cat From Hell pose.*

Now one of our poses will be on The Cat On my Head’s Selfie Sunday but Kali and I must discuss who gets the honours this week.

Tomorrow you will see the winner.donechrispmouse

I WON!  My picture is in The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie.  Simply click here and be whisked off to view all the other Anipals and me too.



A Meander Through Fall’s Picture

Let’s take a stroll through the Lane.  Our neighbours worked and got rid of some trees earlier during the summer.  There was a loud racquet for days coming from this backyard.  This is what they added.                                                           A wire fence or a section of it.  Looks like some peeps are ready to play hockey out here.  These folk had a B & E early last year and this is their protection now,  a new fence where everybody can walk around it.

The lane dressed for fall in orange and yellow with a tad of green.                                                                                   These trees are tired of the orange and yellow and are darned near nekked already!

I’m coming mom.  Slow down I gotta read the newspaper and find out who’s been here.                                                                                 Can you find me?Spot the Siamese!  MOL  Pretty good hiding place, eh?  I still can’t catch a mouse though….I’ve tried everything…cwap!                                                                 Ahhhh….feels good to lay down.

Kali is doing her best impression of Robert De Niro in Taxidriver, “You lookin’ at ME?”

Here is a slightly blurry picture of Cow-Kitty looking proud as punch.                                                                               Yep, you’re right, this is a pile of dirt on Showkali Island.  Cow-Kitty was sleeping in here when mom got up this morning so she took him a bowl of Purrfect Bistro Duck Pate.  He proceeded to gobble it up and then he buried his bowl.  Mom had never seen this before have you?                                                                            




Voting On A Name For Our Fence Area and Backyard

Is everybody ready for the final vote.  Kali and I must thank all our friends for the  fantastic names.

There are going to be two different polls.  Confusing eh?  There will be names for the fence surrounding the backyard and  the grounds or backyard.

The first choice is the fence area:



The second choice will be for the grounds or backyard itself:

Kali and I will decide on the name for our wee abode.

We are excited….our joint will have a gorgeous name.

By the way, mom was out talking with Cow-kitty’s father today.  She asked all the important questions such as, how old is he, is he a he or a she, what’s his name, when do you feel he should be fixed.  You know the crucial questions.

 I never pulled this corn down!  I’m being framed for a crime I didn’t commit.  Kali!!!

Talkative Tuesday

I just had to show you the flat me that dad made.  Mom called me off security patrol on my fence to have a look..                                       Shoko zoomedI left the fence just a galloping like a horse across the lawn.

There I was….flat Shoko.  You know I think it looks just like me.

What do ya think?  Is this me or what?

Now, my friends on a serious note.  Raz and Allie of Cat Scouts and their blog  Friends Furever along with Ellie their sister have had a terrific shock.  Their dad has a rare form of cancer on his nose and will require extensive surgery.  The whole family is devastated as you could imagine.  I am asking that you send your mightiest prayers and purrs to their dad to support him through this trying time.  This family has been praying and purring for Bill from the moment we heard the news.                                                       PRAYERSFORBILLMay TPOTP be with you throughout your ordeal.
