Sunday Selfie

Tyebe….hey Tybe….for cwap sake Tyebe pay attention! What!!  I’s busy trying to catch this snake.  Bet you never caught it Shoko. I was the Snake Charmer of the Hood. Phfft!                                                                      

    See!  That’s me giving the snake a whammy.  You looks kinda scared to mes, Shoko.  After all yous are hiding under the table. 

                                                                         You’re odd Tyebe.  I wasn’t scared.  I’m going outside and away from you.  I need a breath of fresh air. 

Oh no, don’t go Shoko.  Stay with mes!                                                              SHOKOS!!  Come back, Shoko.  You have to take mes.  Here I’s come.                                                                       Geez, how embarrassing!  The other kitties’ll think Tyebe’s a real nerd.

Results of the Polls

Welcome to Fort Meezer in Da Hood my friends.  Shoko’s idea  of a name for the area around the backyard got a 47%  vote.  So look for Shoko to start sprucing up the area soon…right Shoko?  Right Kali but hey, you gotta help too.  Ah, I’m going to be more concerned with the backyard and grounds.  This area by a vote of 46.7% is now called The Garden of Purrthley Delights.  This delicious idea was CK’s of Stunning Keisha.  Now, the greenhouse is like a world unto itself and Kali and I have decided to call it Shokali Island.  When you walk into the greenhouse you are on a tropical island.  The idea was Easy’s of Easy’s Blog.  These are fun and informative blogs, take a peek and see.

These are the bounties from Shokali Island.                                                          Peppers are ready for eating as are the leeks.                                          Spaghetti squash are ripe for the picking.  Mom’s never cooked these kind of squash so dad’s in for a big surprise!

            Guess who, grabbing some shut eye,

Onto mom’s meeting with Cow-Kitty’s dad.  Mom said he was a very nice man.  She asked if Cow-Kitty was a girl or boy.  Darnell said they weren’t sure.  They suspect she is a SHE.  Her name is Felix…..ok?  Mom never said what a weird name for a she cat but held her tongue.  Mom told him about Kali getting very angry at Felix and she suspects its because Felix is growing up and has a different smell.  Mom asked how old Cow Kitty was and Darnell said a couple of months.  Mom corrected him and said at least 4 or 5 months.  It is time to think about getting him neutered.  Darnell agreed he should be neutered.  Mom asked if he wanted to keep Cow-Kitty and he said his young daughter adored Cow-Kitty…even Darnell was calling Felix, Cow-Kitty.  Right then mom knew she could never take a kitty away from a young girl.  Mom told Darnell, who is out of work, that if they needed some assistance getting Cow-Kitty neutered that she would pay half.  Darnell was thrilled mom offered to help.

There you have it friends.  Cow-kitty’s sex is undetermined.  His/her name is Felix and is not free for the taking Ellen.

Have We got All the Suggestions for Names?

I can’t believe all the suggestions we got for a name for our backyard!  We don’t want to forget anyone.  I had a good idea for a name…I thought anyway.  What is it Shoko?  Well, I watch for any intruders on  the top of the fence so I thought of, “Fort Meezer in Da Hood.”  I’m not locked into it but it is descriptive.  I like it Shoks.  I have no ideas about names…I’m drawing a big blank.  How about Cow-Kitty does he have any ideas?  He seems to be busy playing in the garden but I’ll go ask him.

Cow-Kitty,have you got an idea for a name of our backyard?  It should describe the area in winter and summer.    Mame Shoko, you’re asking me?  Really?  Nobody listens to me, I’m just a kitten but you want my ideas?  You made me feel like a grown up mancat, Mame Shoko.  I have no idea but I will try and think about it, ok. Thank you so much.

So I am going to put the suggestions down and those that have more ideas can suggest them and then we will choose which is the most descriptive and just seems to fit.

I hope I didn’t forget anyone here but I do see a pattern.  I am describing the fence area…Fort/chalet area and then the insides of the territory are different.

Example:  I jumped up on the Fort wall and surveyed the gardens below…so we could probably use a couple of names here.

Please my friends add any other suggestions and we’ll see what everybody likes best.

Welcome to Monday’s Moments

Hey Cow-Kitty, whatcha doin’?  I thought kittens didn’t get a kick out of nip?  Well, not until a year old.                                                                     You talkin’ to me?  I’m not a cow-kitty.  I’m a leo..leopard with a few spots missing.  My mommy told me, so there. 

I like your nip…I’ve seen lotsa the kitties from the Lane in here and they always stagger out of here. So I figured this nip must be primo stuff.

So how is it Leo the leopard?  Umm…hehe..well, to tell you the absolute truth, this is the first nip I’ve tasted.  It’s ok…I guess.  Perhaps a kitty needs to be about a year old to appreciate it Leo.  Maybe you’re right Mame Shoko.  Gotta go, its getting near treat time.  See ya Mame…oh and thanks for the nip.

Woah, that is a real polite little gaffer Kali.  I think he’ll be a great addition to the hood.  He sure seems polite and nice.  Maybe I misjudged the little piece of fluff.

Did you know that today is a holiday but only here in BC, not in the rest of Canada?  No way Shoko, we just celebrated Canada’s birthday on July 1st.  What could British Columbia be celebrating that the rest of Canada isn’t?  You’ll never guess this one Kali.  There is a day off in every month but August, so there is now a civic holiday for the workers so they have an extra day off this month.  Doesn’t that seem weird.  Mom said she never had a day off in August when she was working so it must be fairly recent….at least in the last 10 years.  Maybe we should do something special on a day like today.

                                                                        No, let’s just hang loose sis.  I’ve been thinking we should have a name for our property.  After all there are lots of our anipals that have named their homes.  What do we call it here…..the House of Hisses, Camp Kitty……I have no idea what to call it Shoko.  Let’s think about it Shoko and ask our friends what they think.  Hey, great idea Kali.  There you go friends.  Any ideas?
