Looking back at a Brave Man

 

Good news…mom is starting to heal.  She had a drain put in her foot last week,  The battery pack is wrapped around her leg and really uncomfortable, she says.  When the surgeon took off the bandage with the drain, the wound looked pink and healthy so she was given a new drain and bandage for another week.  The drain is taking the liquid away….somewhere.  Anywhere but here.  She is still walking about with the boot on and is usually up for 3 hours a day.  Mom seems bored to tears as nothing much happens when one doesn’t do anything.

We thought you might like to read one of our posts from Oct 29th, 2014.  I was 6 years old and Angel Kali was healthy as a kitten.  Aw…the good old days.                                                    So this is Kali,  She was beautiful!  I hope I can grow up to be half the kitty she was.  Budd, she must have been the perfect queen of Fort Meezer. She was a very gentle lady.  I remember watching her from the Lane. She sure hated bugs….I remember one day she was getting upset so I ventured near and there was a fly on her paw so I took the fly to the Lane and then she settled on the mattress.                                                                 

SHOKO…BLACK
TYEBE…ROYAL BLUE
BUDD…BEAN GREEN

Now for our reposting of the 2014 post.

Today I was going to talk about the decorations Kali and I have around our condo for Halloween but instead, I must talk about our brave dad. Dad told us he had to go into the hospital for a small procedure today. He called the procedure a Colonoscopy.  Sounds like he’s going to get a colony of ants to come live in him! He couldn’t eat or drink till after the procedure was done. I felt bad eating in front of him while he just sat there with nothing. Mom didn’t seem to mind filling her face while dad drooled for food and water. They both jumped in the Toyota and took off for the hospital. Mom came back alone and I was upset….where’s dad? She explained that this procedure took time. Dad was getting a camera up his butt. No!! Surely you jest, mom. Well, I’ll be bald-headed!! Our dad is going to take pictures of us with his butt…how strange. You must give the poor guy credit for allowing the hospital to put a camera up there. I wouldn’t want mom’s camera up my butt! Well, I’ll be extra nice to him and won’t even close my eyes when he turns his butt toward me.

 

Well, I'm thankful for

I’m so thankful for our dad.  He’s a wiener…..I mean a winner.

When dad came home I was there to greet this brave man. I informed mom that I told our friends online about what dad had done…I just was overwhelmed with his bravery. Mom said that maybe dad didn’t want everyone to know what he had done. Oh my, why not…it was the most unselfish thing to do….thinking so much of his girls. Mom did look a little baffled but said no more. My dad…think I’ll keep him.                                                               

 

Shokos Surprise Gotcha Day Party

Can we scare her now mom?  Sorry, I mean surprise Shokos?  Yipee!  Shokos, oh Shokos….                                                              

What is it, Tyebe? I was chillaxin’. Something I don’t get to do often with you around.                                                                   

Me’s thinks somethings happening out back, you’s should take a look.

Alright, Tyebe!

Surprise Shokos!  Happy 10th Gotcha Day!

Oh my…look at all my friends, coming all the way to Prince George.  I’m overcome.                                                         

Timmy and Buddy from Tomcat Commentary by Tim are discussing the foods to serve.

They decided on chick-hen.

Of course, Shoko’s favourite, grilled salmon.

We couldn’t have a BBQ without Shoko’s treat of all treats….Spider Dogs!

Also, sparkling nip water for everyone.                                                                

Angel Kali came to visit Shoko and wish her a Happy Gotcha Day. Buddy and Angel Kali spent some quality time together.

Einey, you are so floofy today. Extras combs of your fur for me, eh? C’mon Einey let’s hop in the sack. mol                                                                                                                                                           

Welcome Marv, how’s the weather in the banana belt of BC?   Grab something to eat.  I’m sure one of the choices is a favourite of yours.                                                       

Shokos I’s got you a gift. This is a straw me’s saved just for your Gotcha Day. See no teeth marks.

That is so nice of you, Tyebe…thank you.

Please help yourself to some Yeoww! nip and take some with you.                                               

Good Mother’s Day What’s Happening

Happy Mother’s Day?  I don’t think so.  I took the Greenies back that I was going to give mom for Mother’s Day.  She doesn’t deserve them.  What am I talking about?  Well, she’s been so busy buying transplants, digging up weeds, planting transplants in the greenhouse that she has no time to play or even take me for a walk.  Then to top it off she brought this wee scrap of fur into MY house!

I saw this bit of fluff and it looked like Kali had shrunk.  I was excited.

Cwap! This white thing didn’t smell like Kali. In fact, she stunk of somebody else’s house. I told her what I thought of her and there was no mincing meows. You know she’s kinda thick-furred, she just carried on doing what she wanted.                                                                              

This white terror has no manners what so ever. She wanted some crumbles so stood in her wet kitty food to get it! Have you ever heard of anything so gross!                                                                             

I can’t understand mom’s thinking. I was happy if not a little lonely. I certainly didn’t need a shadow.

Whenever I sit down I have to watch and make sure this thing isn’t creeping up on me.                                                               

I have bags under my eyes cause this fur with long legs follows me everywhere. She even sleeps in MY stroller and my basket.

Mom has called her Tyeebe. I think she’ll be called Tyee as her wee brain can’t absorb the 2 syllables yet.

The only peace and quiet I get is when I go outside.

Hope your mom has a super day and doesn’t spring any surprises on you.

It’s also The Cat on My head’s Selfie Sunday so I am giving the selfie to Tyee.  Click on the blog hop name and be whisked away.                                                          I must tell you mom helped Tyee cause she didn’t understand.  I tell ya it’s like playschool here!

                                                                                                                                        

Angel Kali’s 16th Birthday

 

Shoko it’s a special day today.  It would have been Kali’s 16th birthday.  A real landmark.  She is celebrating in heaven now but we won’t be unhappy cause she shared so many good times with us.

MOM…..MAROON
SHOKO…..BLACK

Do you remember when you first came to live with us?  I remember some things mom.  You made Kali’s life a lively place.

MOL…I remember that. I thought Kali was going to eat me! mol

She was a knockout.  A cat that was born to be beautiful.  She spent hours on her fur and paws.                                                    

She hated bugs and would come inside at the slightest sound of a bug.  The one exception was if I brought her a stunned fly.  She liked those.                                                 

Remember how she loved oregano! She rolled in the oregano and then the dirt. MOL She loved it. You’re right Shoks.                                                      

What a mess she was.  She was happy though.

We grew so very close.  We would lay on the bed and listen to our Bedtime Story.                                              
So many memories. We are very fortunate to have such happy memories, Shoko.

Look at the lovely card that Buddy Budd of Tomcat Timmy’s Commentary made up for Kali’s birthday.                                                     

Fantastic card right from the heart… Kali will love this.

Let’s gobble up this strawberry cake that the guys and Miss Fitz made over at Timmy’s Commentary.  Kali’s favourite cake was strawberry.  It tastes pretty darn good. Mmmm  Go visit Timmy’s place and share your feelings.

Buddy, we want to keep you here on earth for a few more years.  You will be with Kali again and forever.

 

Sparks From Mother Nature

 

Where are you Shoko?  SILENCE  Guess, she’s gone outside.

There you are rolling in the flower garden.  Well, ya, the dirt is nice and warm.  You really ought to try it mom.                                                  
Thanks, Shoks but this weeding has to be done. Aww…you really do miss out on the finer things in life cause you have to do silly cwap. The weeds just come back again.

Today is Annie from McGuffy’s Reader’s positive message day. Let’s get some pictures of Mother Nature’s gifts to us, Shoko. I don’t think so, mom. I’m pretty happy here. You won’t screw up the pictures to badly without me so show me your stuff.

Well, here are some tulips that have reached for the sun and are ready to bloom.                                                   

Two weeks ago I took this picture of the tree in the Lane.
Today this is the tree.

Our positive message for Sparks is:

Think positive and have a great week.

I laughed so hard at this meme….it reminded me so much of Kali. Please enjoy.

Thankful for a Postcard From Fiji

MAROON…..MOM
ORANGE…..KALI

Mom, mom, we got a postcard from Fiji. Kali’s taken the time to send us some news from the island.


It’s so pretty there! I don’t see no pink beaches though.  Maybe the tide washed the pink off the sand. *Shoko looks at mom with a quizzical look.*                                            

You sound just like Kali, mom. You’ve been hanging out with her too long. No way do I believe you. hmpf!

What does our little white ghosty have to say for herself?

Hi, there winter warriors.  It’s beautiful and 86 F(30C)here.  The trade winds carry just a scent of Jasmine. *sniff* *sniff*  Buddy and I are lying on the beautiful pink sands and chowing down on turkey and beef.  He is dangling a treat above my mouth and I catch it,  The moisture is awesome on my furs as they’re shining like silk.  The other Cougars are mewing with the cabana boycats.  The boycats here are so handsome and not puffed out to keep warm like at home.   Glad you’re not here with us Shoko but will see you soon, sisteh.  Miss you mom!

Loves Kali

We are also partaking of Thankful Thursday with Brian’s Home Blog.  We are thankful for each other and the fact that we can relax and say whatever we want without someone giving us grief.  We are also thankful for a sisteh that never forgets us.  Click on Brian’s Homer and go visit the others that are thankful.  Come back and have a cuppa green nip with me.  See ya later, friend.                                                  

Fun Selfie Sunday

It’s Sunday fun day.  The weather is a little warmer and dad shoveled the stairs leading from the deck.  Mom is coming out with me today.  She has a touch of cabin fever and needs the fresh air blowing amidst her furs.  Shhh….don’t tell her but she’s getting bossy and loud.  I don’t want to hurt her feelings so MUM’s the word.                                                

It’s Sunday Selfie day also at The Cat On My Head blog so we shall hop over there and show our best side. Come with us, just click on the blog host name and ta-da we’ve arrived.                                            

Not too bad if I don’t say so myself.   Do you wonder where Kali is?  She’s gone on a winter vacation with her crotchety friends.

Have a wonderful day. Hope you get sun.
