The Party Planning Begins

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET

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.                                                                           

A Visit with a New and Different Dentist

SHOKO….. BLACK
KALI….. ORANGE
COW KITTY…..GREEN

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.                                                       aacounter-shokoOff 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.                                                                  aakalibaskJust 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.

aasamiam1

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.                                        aack2What?  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.                                                                                      sistersinarmswinter               

                                        

Sunday Selfie with Kali

The Cat On My Head is hosting the Selfie blog hop and it was my turn to show my stuff.  hehe  I sound so risqué.

KALI…..ORANGE                                                     catonheadbdMom has probably told you my food allergy has been acting up again.  I’ve been scratching my neck until there is a humongous bare spot on my neck.  Mom’s solution, tie Shoko’s bandana from Cat Scouts around my neck.  She also put me on hypoallergenic wet food. OMC….it’s the most disgusting food I’ve ever tasted!  Mom has discovered a way to get me to eat some though.  Now get this my buddies……she spoon feeds me. MOL  I have to put something in my mouth or I’d laugh myself silly.

kalibandana1See the black stuff at the corner of my eyes.  This is worse when my food allergy is acting up.

Caturday Artsy Fartsy Time With Kali

KALI…..ORANGE

I had to get my picture into Artsy Fartsy Day and not Shoko.  I am very sleepy but my furs are silky soft on my new med.  HyaFlex is the kitty version of Hyaluronic Acid.  Mom adds it to my food and it is tasteless and odourless.  I don’t even know it’s in the food….except I see her add it to my food.

 

Now onward and upward with Athena Cat Goddess Blog Hop.  Please drop by Athena’s and view all your friends posing with their mom’s idea of art.                                                            caturdayartbannerMom used Pho.to Editor again.  This time she used the textures to put hearts in my atmosphere and a nice burgundy frame.

Artsy, Fartsy Caturday with Shoko

Canada Day was yesterday and what a day it was!  It was a cold and snowy day.  It was not Shoko!  It was a warm and sticky day! I don’t think so my dear white pile of fur .  Shoko its July, we don’t get snow in July.  There is no way my furs were sticky under my arm pits.  I have never sweated.  Of course not. mom says women glow and men sweat.  Have you ever seen Buddy sweat?  I’ve never seen Einstein’s lovely floofy tail drenched in sweat.                                                              buddy budHe’s gorgeous and no sweat….

Einstein Tail SNo sweat on Einstein either.  He is one fine hunka fur.

As I was saying yesterday was Canada Day so mom and dad went to the park to see the Canada Day celebrations.  They were gone for several hours and it was dark when they came home.  I was trying to be brave as we were down to the last kibble.  No it wasn’t dark Shoko.  They were gone for maybe an hour or two and we had lots of food.

On with my tail of Canada Day.                                                                  acancitA devoted Canadian Citizen!  I wonder if he got his citizenship papers today along with several others?  Perhaps he’s just odd…That’s rude Shoko, be nice!

The Medieval group in town put on a fight scene for observers.                                                           afighters                        asurrender

Talk about sweating….bet those dudes and dudettes were hot.

Just a glimpse of our Canada Day celebrations.

Now, it’s time for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s  Artsy Caturday blog hop. Take a hop over there and view all the other anipals that had to put up with their mom’s messing with their picture.                                                                         Cat art

Mom used Pizap to fiddle with my beautiful relaxing picture.                                                                     asharpenMom sharpened my image and that’s all the fixin  she did. It is different.

Have a great Caturday and may your snow storms in July be few.                                                        afire3Happy 149th birthday Canada!                                                                    Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shopping Around The World With Chef Kali

Here it is another Shopping Around the World hosted by Piglove and Fozziemum.  This week we can make anything our little pea pickin’ hearts desire.

Kali stood up and said she wanted to be the celebrity chef from Fort Meezer, for this dish.

achefdoneHello my friends.  My dish today will be Greek Potatoes

Let’s hear it for Greek Potatoes…..*smashes plate by throwing it at the wall.* “OPA!!”  hehe  Do you know where the Greek custom of smashing glasses and plates stems from?  MOL…Stems…glasses…MOL  Opa!! *smash*Me-wow

Greek tradition has it that this practice started when a rich family invited a much poorer family to dinner and to make them feel better invited them to break the plates. They were proving that friendship is everything. And there’s no better way of proving that than dining with friends over Greek food.

Without further Αντίο ( adieu in Greek)  our main course for the day:
