They say Spring has sprung. Well Spring is struggling to stay out around here, She keeps hiding and letting a dress of white occupy the backyard. We don’t even want to see another picture of this dress….months and months we watched nature give us the Winter whites. Yuck…no more mom! Bring on the sunshine and flowers. Come on let’s exam the garden for signs of life. Hey, dad’s digging over my veggie garden. The ground is no longer frozen. High five, Kali!!
The tulips are peeking out. Bad news mom….the weeds seem to be posing for the picture. Guess we’ll be out weeding before long. 2nd year buds are on the transplanted lilac bush. Mom’s never seen the bald headed, tattooed man she got it from again. Someone told mom it takes a good three years for transplanted lilacs to have flowers. We shall see.
Look at the nip buds!! Dad said he had to re-net the nip….there were layers of cat hair on it. Dang visitors…..we wouldn’t do that!!
Here is our last sign of Spring in the backyard. It’s my Hawaiian collar that I lost in December! Now that the snow’s gone, dad found it. The red suits me…my favourite collar. I thought it was gone for good.
Oh cwap! Kali’s found a new kitten in the neighbourhood. She seems to like him. Another sign of Spring…new kittens in the area. This guy looks to be 5 months though. Get away from him Kali….we don’t need anymore visitors!! Our nip is getting too hairy. A further sign of spring are the puddles but no ice.
There you have it friends, the signs of spring around our place and our first walk of the year in the Lane.
What a cwappy day. It’s pouring…..apparently the end of some hurricane decided to come all this way inland and grace us with its rain. The wind is ahowlin’ and the leaves are blowing everywhere. I’m not impressed! Furthermore it looks like my friends Penelope and her bro Pippin’ have had a horrible accident in the basement and may not be up to playing with us this year. I won’t go into detail but its not a pretty sight apparently. Mom won’t tell me anymore than that. Remember these cheery faces. My friends Penelope and Pippin’.
We had such fun together. Well what’s a kitty to do!
Kali had to go to the vet’s today too. She didn’t want to go and told mom why but mom had her ears turned off. Before I knew it they were back again. I guess I must’ve fallen asleep. Kali was very happy to get out of the carrier and disappeared before I completely woke up. Kali has arthritis with some wasting around her hips. The pain giver recommended fish oil and if there is no difference a capsule for arthritis will be appropriate. Mom said it was remarkable but Kali who usually sheds all fur hanging about, so it looks like a fog has descended upon the room, didn’t shed 1 hair. One great thing that happened today was mom got her Cat Lady box and we both helped her look inside. We exhausted ourselves with the box and are ready for a snooze.
Kali is delighted its Artsy, Fartsy Caturday on Athena and Marie’s blog tomorrow and she gets to pose. Simply click on the name of the hosting blog and enjoy the anipals in their artsy forms.
Have a great weekend my friends and if you get a chance drop into Cat Scouts on Saturday as I will be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving. I will probably celebrate off and on for the whole long weekend.
