It’s Dr. Seuss Day and we are having a wee party. Of course, there’s green ham and eggs for every furry face that shows up. Hurry up Budd….your favourite…FOOD!
Yummy, that Dr. Seuss sure knew the food that would get my attention.
Dr. Seuss had some pretty cool quotes too. Quotes that make us feel special…which we are.
This is a favourite of mine…Dr. Seuss treats!!
Mmmmm…Marshmallows and bananas. Better, it doesn’t get any.
Let’s wash that green ham down with a Cat In The Hat smoothie.
This is read across America (and Canada) Day.
Q: What kind of musician is the Cat in the Hat ?
A: A purr-cussionist mol mol mol

It’s Thankful Thursday Tyebe and Budd. Thankful Thursday is held at Brian’s Home. To see more thankful anipals jump on over there and take a peek at your friends. Simply click on the badge.
What are you thankful for this Thursday, Tyebe? I’s really thankful for the box dad found in the garage. It’s just the right size for Budd and me’s.
Me’s also thankful dad caught me in the cupboard and not mom. Mom would have been ticked and I’s probably would have broken some dishes trying to get out of the cupboard. Was it interesting in there, Tyebe? Not really. I thought there’d be food on the dishes but there wasn’t even a tidbit.
C’mon you three pose for me.
We want to see your faces.
Cwap, this is taking too long. What’s that in the kitchen? Looks like a bug. Think I need glasses.
My face need washing. Come back later when I’ve cleaned up.
I’s have to grab my nanner. It’s calling to me’s.
SHOKO…..BLACK TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE BUDD…..SEA GREEN MOM…..MAROON
A beautiful day here at Fort Meezer. Everything in the garden is at its peak. Soon the veggie garden will be nekked again. Oh Cod, this Love Lies Bleeding has grown way too big…it looks silly. Mom says she’s not going to plant it in containers next year. No, she’ll probably plant corn in the wagon!
The sweet peas were very pretty this year and mom grew them from the seed of last year’s sweet peas. However, she only got red and pink seeds. no purple or white. Next year we’ll buy them so we get the whole spectrum of colours.
I’m walkin’ here…give me room. We’re going for a stroll Shoko, want to come? No way….I’m headed to the Lane. You yapped at me for stepping on you last time I went. Suit yourself…Shoko.
What a kook she is….winter will be here soon and there won’t be any strolls.
Mom doesn’t always put the netting over the top of me anymore unless potential danger is headed this way…like a woofie. I’m happy to lay and watch the scenery go by.I came home and ate like my food was walking away. MOL
Then everything changed and it got foggy and cloudy. The forest fires are still raging on as this setting shows us, as the sun was bleeding.
You got the shovel Kali? What for Shoko? Well, we gotta dig a hole to get mom into…..this is going to take a while. What are you doing with that trowel…we need real shovels that can dig lotsa dirt at one time. We’ll be digging from now till winter with a trowel. I don’t like this Shoko….we’ll never get mom to go sit in a hole…..while we throw dirt at her. Then she’s going to be annoyed and we won’t see treats for some time to come. Hmm…you got a point ghosty sister of mine. Let’s just forget it till we have a better plan.
Another Fryday with another Fill-In from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. These two gals think up two sentences each for us to fill in. The first two are from 15 and Meowing and the last two are from McGuffy’s Reader. Pretty clever, eh?
I made a fort between the pillows in bed….I’m comfy how bout you?
1. A recurring dream I have is….. THAT BUDDY VISITS ON A BEAUTIFUL HORSE AND WE GO RIDING IN THE BACK LANE. OH MY I’M GETTING EXCITED….He is gorgeous! Buddy is fromTomcat Commentary by TimLook at those basket eyes…hehehe….I love em so much I could rip some of his furs out to take to my basket and dream of him I. On second thought we don’t need the horse. We’d probably use our claws to get up on the horse and the horse would bolt….leaving us on our heads on the ground. MOL
2. Turn…..HYPOALLERGENIC WET FOOD….. into …..DELI ROAST TURKEY….. AND I’D BE A HAPPY CAMPER.Mom does her best to get me to eat and sometimes I’m absolutely fascinated by the lengths she’ll go to and I absent- mindedly eat the slop.
My turn Kali….I must express myself before I burst. MOL
3. CAPPY-TAN….. is driving me crazy! He waits outside our door for one of us to come outside, He even sings to us. Myself, I think he’s not neutered and is ready to get his MEW off.
4. Lately, I have been….HAPPY TO STAY AROUND THE BACKYARD AND INVESTIGATE BUGS IN THE GARDEN…… a stroll is wonderful when the weather is beautiful and warm but when the wind’s howling, the backyard with the six foot fence is the place to play.
There you have it my friends, our opinions on today’s fill-ins.
Strictly the views of the occupants of Fort Meezer.
It’s time we asked mom when she’s going away so we can plan our wee pawty with the gang from Blogville. Should we tell mom about the pawty Shoko? Are you kidding….no way. She would be upset and give Judy some terrible rules like hide the nip and put all the toys away. I have mom’s credit card number and have been paying attention when she buys something. You better not get mom in trouble or you’ll be looking for a new home. You mean she’d get rid of me over a few measly dollars. With her credit card! No, mom wouldn’t get rid of you….I would. You don’t hurt the ones you love Shoko, not ever. So we do this pawty proper like or we have none. I see what you mean Kali and I won’t use mom’s credit card. How bout her emergency money? That’s border line bad behaviour Shoko. Well, how else are we going to get the money for a happening pawty? Steal the things we need? Mom would be horrified if we stole anything. She just wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behaviour from either of us. We weren’t brought up to steal what we want. Well, I don’t have any idea then. *sigh*
Stay still Shoks, you’re making me dizzy with your blurriness. How bout your Da Bird wand…..we could get a few dollars for that at the …..No way sis, Einey gave me Da Bird for Christmas. I’m never, ever, ever parting with it. OK, OK…cool your booties, I won’t take it away.Hi there mom, we were just talking about you and dad and your vacation. Where are you going? We’re going to France Shoko. FRANCE…you mean like Paris. Exactly! Cool, that’s where I went with Cat Scouts. You going to see the Eiffel Tower? Oh we can’t miss seeing such a wonderful place. Did you know that Einey and I went hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower.Really, weren’t you scared? Well, a little but Einey was with me. He would save you right Shoko? No….if I die in the jump, so does he. See, don’t we look cool. How long will you be gone mom? A couple of weeks Shoko. We leave next week. We’re also headed for London after France. So you are going to more places than Paris in France? Yes, you betcha. We’re going to see Phenny and his parents. No seriously mom, anyone I would know? Phenny and his parents Shoko. They live across a huge pond……you can’t jump that far and our magic carpet wouldn’t hold you and dad. You’ll have to wait and see the pictures when we get back.
Friends, friends. That’s it Kali! I got it. We can ask our friends to bring one fun food or drink to the pawty. By the time 10 friends are here the choices will be fantastical. I like that Shoko….we can supply some things like nip, some silvervine and chicky broth with a blob of chicky in it. We can get some good games going too. We have to have a catchy name. How about Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty? Let it be……come one and all to our Lucky Pot Pawty. The last week of March is when we are having the funniest pawty you have ever seen.
May you never find a cat in your burger! That makes no sense, Shoko. Does too! You never heard of a cat burger? That’s a cat burglar Shoko. You say burglar I say burger….same diff.
It’s time for us to get mom up and active, Kali. I’ll go yell on the stairs and you can start talking in your loud manner. I’m not LOUD like some ole fishwife…..I’m emphatic. With a tad of urgency in my voice. You mean more like a scream…MOL It’ll get her up and rootin’ around for our brekky. Why’s she so tired Shoko? She has had a toothache for a few days so went to the dentist. Her regular dentist was on her week off but her husband, Dr. Lopez was on, so she made an appointment with him. Off she toddled to meet him and find out what gives with this tooth. Was he nice Shoko? Her regular dentist is so nice. Mom likes her, as far as she likes any dentist.Just listen Kali. Mom went into his office and had the x-rays taken and then the nurse introduced Dr. Lopez. Mom was speechless. This doesn’t happen often friends. He looked a little like, “Sam I Am” from Dr, Seuss.
He shook mom’s hand instead of raising his hat. Every word he said, he expressed with his hands, He had on white gloves…..ok, they were medical gloves but the image was the same. What? He turned out to be Sam I Am. What a dentist he would make! No, no….he behaved like Sam I Am, Cow Kitty. Do you know mom’s tooth didn’t hurt anymore! Turned out it was her sinus’ acting up and they made her tooth pound. He prescribed antibiotics. When he told mom she shouldn’t have a prescribed anti-biotic without taking food with it, he wagged his finger back and forth just like Sam I Am.
When mom left the dentist, she felt good to have met Sam I Am’s human twin.
One of our favourite Dr. Seuss quotes: So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.
