When we last left Shoko she was shattered by the knowledge she has grey furs at the base of her tail. We tune in today to find Einstein’s reaction to Shoko’s devastating news about getting old. Kali on the other paw is rather enjoying Shoko’s turmoil. Payback time for all those sneak attacks and stolen treats.
What else could I do to cover my grey, Kali…something that’s cheap. I don’t have the money for a dye for just 2 inches on my tail. I know mom wouldn’t agree with it. Well, there is one other option that won’t cost anything. What is it Kali? Mom has felt pens for labelling food. I’ll bet she’d lend you her black one. Not a bad idea Kali.Mom would have to colour me….she has thumbs….we don’t. Mom can you colour me with your felt pen and cover the grey? Do you think this is such a good idea? What will happen when you go out in the snow or when your sister slops water on the floor and you decide to sit down? Cwap! I never thought of that. I guess the black would change the snow’s colour and make a black mark on the floor. It’s rude to laugh at my problem Kali! I can’t help it Shoko, you’re such a drama queen….jeepers! You know Einstein…….just talk to him and tell him about the grey furs. I’ll bet ya tonight’s dehydrated chicky treats he understands. I guess I have no choice. *sigh*I had mom write to Einstein and I was so worried but I received his e-mail so fast, I couldn’t believe it. This is the gist of the e-mail :
You could go Green and I would still call you my sweetest kitty dear! If your fur was falling out I would gather it and we would while away the hours taping it back on. That is how I love thee.
So you were right Kali. He understood and I worried for nothing. Did mom step
on my toys on the floor in the bedroom, Kali? Naw, I kicked them further under
the bed. She’ll find them when she cleans…MOL. You owe me your treats tonight.
Shoks. No problem Kali…they’re all yours. I’m too tired to argue. This lack of
sleep is not good, I may go greyer from the tension. *yawn*
Hang onto your furs Shoks this smacky paw is going to rock…your..your… What’s the matter Kali, you’re staring at me in my private place at the base of my tail? That’s rude!
I’m sorry Shoks but it looks like you’re turning grey at the base of your tail. No…me? Really?? You’re not blowing nip up my nose, are ya Kali? No, of course not! You are going grey at the base of your tail. Look for yourself Shoks?
I can’t see any grey Kali. I’ll ask mom…she’ll tell me the truth. You better clean the mess you made on the bed first. You’ve brought half your toys onto the bed. Mom’ll be ticked. You’re right Kali. A quick paw swish and we can get these toys on the floor and under the bed. MOL
Mom. am I going grey at the base of my tail. Stick your tail up here Shoks.
Oh my, Kali’s right, you do have some grey hair but it’s like salt and pepper coloured. NO!!! Say it isn’t so, mom. Einstein won’t like me anymore cause I’m going grey and he’s such a young mancat. I’m only seven and Kali’s 13 and she doesn’t have any grey furs! It’s not fair mom!!! Have you really looked at my furs Shoko? Maybe I have grey hairs and you never noticed. I’ll check your fur and let you know if you have any grey ones Kali.
Is Kali turning grey and how will Shoko tell Einstein she’s getting old? Will mom find the toys under the bed or step on the toys that Shoko’s smacky paw missed? Find out how Shoko and Kali’s world turns next post.
It’s one of those days….grey but sunny at times. Kali and I pile outside when the sun is out and come running back when the wind starts howlin’ and the hail beats down. Mom is still workin’ on the laundry….come on mom it’s not like you have to beat the sheets with rocks to get the dirt off. Let’s make the bed and maybe do somethin’ fun. Meanwhile Kali is practicing her selfies in the bedroom.
Better Kali,,,we can see part of your face.
Let’s move into the living room and finish the last one. I think you get distracted with your toys in here.
Yompin’ Yimmity’…you got it Kali! You look intelligent too…wow. You’ll floor them On Selfies Sunday. The Cat on My Head is hosting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop….just click on the blog name and visit my friends.
I’m going to help mom make the bed….smooth out the wrinkles in the sheets.
Make sure there are no lumps in the bed…like a Kali Kitty.
